    Dot5Hosting.com - review

    I've been a customer of many hosting companies, including 4WebSpace, EdgeHost, Verio, Interland, and a few others, but no company compares to Dot5Hosting. I host many sites with them and they are very kind, no just to me, but to the customers I recommend. Their service is incredible - i had a problem with MYSQL connections being allowed from a remote source - and they fixed it from me. I think that they do a great job and would recommend them to anyone.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.

    How long have you been hosted with them?

    Can you mention, link us to any sites that are being hosted with them?

    I'm too lazy to do a check, www.hostpr.com, is that hosted with them?

    Surely you'd know that with so many Dot5 clients recommending their host, you need to add a little meat to your post before it's seen as a credible review.

    I have no doubt you like these guys. So that is not in question. This is just a funny observation I made. Your sig has:

    PR and Marketing Communications for Web Hosting Companies
    Hmmm.. Doing a little PR for Dot5?

    No this was not an accusation. Only a joke.

    Surely you must know who he is because apprently you've contracted him for work in the past.

    What were the first shameless tactics? While it could seem a bit to be each other's client (or past client), it is possible that HostPr actually just likes the service he's gotten. Or have we ruled that out in favor of automatically bashing our competitors? I won't rule out foul play, however I'll find out before I post on the forum. i suggest others do the same.

    We aren't disputing their service. Puggy mentioned that he had no idea who the person was, when they clearly have done business with one another.

    Robert, maybe I'm incorrect, but it was my impression that Chris (puggy) isn't the actual owner of Dot5 (thus he might not be aware of everything the company does or everyone the company does business with). If he is the owner, then I'd have to concede that he would most likely have to have a very poor memory if he didn't recall hiring the firm to do PR.

    Actually - i'm a client, who runs several companies, one of them being Dynamify Productions - a music promotion company. I've chosen Dot5Hosting.com as service - and HostPr.com and several other of my sites are run through it. HostPr.com is going out the door- we really just launched it to see the reaction - and its honestly going no-where.

    This isn't spam - and we'd love to back this up anyway possible.

    Thanks,
    HostPr
