A Quick Dot5Hosting Reviews

Dot5 Hosting‘s shared hosting plan is mostly suitable for individuals and small businesses looking forward to place the first step in developing their online presence. Even though this makes the company quite a limited prospect, it will certainly mean that customers who are looking to upscale will need to look around. Dot5 has confirmed that it is at least quite good at what it does. In spite of a website that could do with a re-design, Dot5’s plan is definitely worth looking at, though it is not the most versatile or economical shared plan in the market.

Shared Hosting

Dot5 needs to work seriously to impress its consumers as it is just holding one hosting plan. However, its high performance servers provide a high level of reliability for a budget shared plan, and the unlimited specifications of bandwidth and also the disk space gives users the option to grow their websites and reach a large number of visitors without the fright of exceeding limits. 

While the unlimited specification is not really infinite, the company will intervene if it finds that the user is using more than their fair share of their server’s resources. This actually means that one can use as much as it is possible to use on a shared plan before they feel the necessity to upgrade to a virtual private or dedicated server.

The respective plan’s functionality for website design and management with their unlimited MySQL databases and FTP accounts, and a wide range of options on how you build your own website is the best feature among the other hosting providers. Complete multimedia compatibility definitely means that one can really make the most of the unlimited bandwidth and disk space. Few users may slightly be disappointed by the control panel as Dot5 has opted for vDeck against the most popular and highly-regarded cPanel, especially those who have used cPanel in the past, but those who have not created a website before are not likely to notice any problem.

There are four different payment plans offered by Dot5. Based on the length of contract one desires to purchase, there are apparently financial incentives for making a larger commitment from the outset. Also, those who wish to take out a one-year or a two-year plan with Dot5 will receive a free domain name, which is rather a rare addition amongst plans in this price range. But for shorter-term contracts, the mandatory setup fee makes Dot5 one of the most expensive providers of shared-only hosting. Thus, the longer plans are definitely worth the investment in the long-term.


Good hosting requires a good support plan and fortunately Dot5 does not fall at the final hurdle. Holding a highly-developed and comprehensive online help centre, most customers will be able to solve the minor problems on their own. However, they need help and the company provides all the standard range of contact options, which includes telephone and live chat and thus users will be able to quickly get through to someone who can help them.

Our Verdict

Since Dot5 offers just one plan, it cannot afford to let anything slip. But unfortunately, small problems such as poorly designed website and the lack of cPanel are quite enough to prevent Dot5 from taking up a place amongst the best in the business.
