Price / Cost Effectiveness
At only $3.95 per month, Dot5 Hosting offers a great price. But the real question is, do you get more than you're paying for - and the answer is a resounding 'Yes'! Dot 5 Hosting comes with all same features their higher priced competitors offer, lacking nothing that any small-to-midsize business needs for their web presence. You get unlimited gigs of storage, unlimited data transfer (check their T&C for the fine print), a free website builder, a free shopping cart and other ecommerce tools, and a whopping 5,000 email accounts.
Dot5 Hosting has just put together a brand new (and improved) Support platform which integrates their FAQs and Knowledgebase into one, seamless, searchable and logically referenced system. And if you can't get your questions answered that way, you can reach a live human being 24/7/365 by toll-free telephone or Live Chat as well as email support ticket. I imagine their working on building more Tutorials as well, though at the time of this writing, the only one there was a Control Panel settings demo.
Speaking of the control panel, all Dot5 Hosting customers enjoy the vDeck control panel, of the world's leading edge control panels, with intuitively categorized user controls identified with large icon-based buttons, and a small but convenient sidebar illustrating certain key stats in real-time. The latest version of vDeck (version 3.0) comes with integrated web marketing features, including SEO tools like search engine submission.
Reliability / Data Center
Dot5 Hosting customers get the power of high performance Dell servers with dual redundant M71 routers and big iron load balancers. Dot5 Hosting backs ups their 99.9% uptime guarantee by protecting all customer data using mirrored storage backups, and the facilities are monitored 24/7 by manned security and the latest in security technology.
Linux/Unix Hosting Plans
Professional Hosting Plan: Unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth @ $3.95/month (host up to 6 domains on 1 account)
For quality, professional web hosting on a shoestring budget, Dot5 Hosting gets it on the dot.
