I believe dot5hosting is quite a good company, and for $5 I'm happy enough to stay. Sure, if I want better uptime, or whatever, I can get it - but it'll cost me. So for $5 a month I've got a pretty good host, to be honest. You get what you pay for - cheap host, acceptable bandwidth and uptime.
What I find extremely positive about Dot5 hosting:
1. Monthly transfer and storage. Pretty decent for $5/month.
2. Personal service. You can contact the CEO yourself if you feel like it.
3. Openness - forums.dot5hosting.com - they never had to put this up, but they did, and that's pretty cool. I should say that not every host does that.
The downsides of dot5hosting:
1. Occasional downtime - half an hour here, or there, usually at most.
2. Tech support not always great and sometimes slow to respond.
3. Things happen without being told, such as stats programs changing, or whatever. They could simply keep the customers informed a little better. But it's not a major problem – they’re usually upgrades they don't tell you about.

I have been with Dot5hosting for about two years by now and I should say it's the best host I've been with, everything that dissatisfed me at my 5 old hosts wasn’t like this at Dot 5 hosting at all. I love their control panel, easy to navigate, provides all the necessary functions and lets you manage everything with just few click of a button. I've never seen a second of downtime. Whenever there is a problem all you have to do is swing by the site, head into a live chat, and within 5 to 10 minutes your problem is solved. I think I've found my ideal host.

Dot5Hosting's customer service is excellent. They cooperated with me to meet my needs promptly, politely and effectively. My site`s only been offline for an hour, and I was quickly informed of the problem and what Dot5 Hosting was doing to fix the matter. The support has been excellent with queries always being answered, even when a solution hasn`t been possible, they`ve been polite enough to inform me of the fact rather than just ignoring my email. My site loads very quickly and smoothly. The only thing I disliked about Dot5Hosting is that they sent me 5 warning emails saying if I did not renew, I would lose my domain.
The annual rate is the most economical and for the low price, I get quality service. In general, I recommend Dot5Hosting to everyone.

As a web designer & a musician, I have spent looong time looking for good website host company. I've been tricked so many times and finally, i have my "top 3" listed on my site. Do5 is one of them.
Those people are reliable, 99% time up, 5,000 email addresses and up, 24/7 support and the price ranges from 4 to 7 bucks...so do the math. I know there are many more people like i was, looking for the right one. Whichever one you choose, you won't go wrong! Cheers!

They're decent, they are the first real host I have ever paid for. They do have occasional downtime, but I have not noticed any in the last two months, the amount of storage provided and the bandwith is good for the price. I have however experienced minor issues with email. They need to upgrade to PHP 5, or at least provide support for it. I am happy that I have successfully ran Joomla! on their server without any issues even though they do not officially support it. They could use more web applications as well, they offer a few forums, and a content management system that you can install with the click of a button. But their choices were not that great, I believe they should of definitely added Joomla, Mambo, Xoops, and a few other content management systems to their on the go portal installations. All in all, I am satisfied with them, I recommend them for small personal websites, and maybe for medium businesses.

I have been with them for about 3 years. overaall ok if you do not use much space.
Unlimited space as advertised is not as good as it sounds. When I started with them, I got the 300 GB space deal. Since then, they upgraded to unlimited.
However, I put ~2 GB worth of files in my 300 GB+ space (mainly photos) and the thing came to a halt. I no longer could look up files in my folders on the server, I could not FTP, I could not do much as all. Support folks said to see if I can delete some of the files. I said then what exactly unlimited means? It apears if there are a lot of files, your connection (to look up things or to ftp things) gets timed out real quick.

I've been on dot5hosting now for a couple of years. It was OK at first, but now there have already been 2 downtime incidents this year (2009), and I'm thinking about moving to a more reliable site.
