After a year of use of a reseller package I recall the best moments:
They do not have or provide any telephone number to cont...展開
Almost every 2 or 3 weeks all my clients websites were down! Without any notice from them! The most funny thing was that the same time their main website and client portal was down too! The only way to communicate with them was Facebook. If I was lucky I got a reply in an hour saying that they were trying their best to resolve the server problem.
All email accounts from my clients were facing blocking issues (RBL). The problems were disappearing when I moved theese websites to another host.
Also without any reason my websites were reaching the limit of 50 emails per hour and usually got blocked. Of course none of these was happening before I moved in regxa or after I moved out!
The most tragic moment was a day all websites were down for too many hours! I was trying to contact them in Facebook without any answer. Sometime later I saw a post on their wall saying that they did change their DNS! They just changed their DNS without any prior notice. I had to change manually the DNS's to every account and wait for more hours - almost a day for the new DNS to activate.
The last thing I must mention is that I asked them a week before to change my way of payment from yearly to monthly and the ticket never replied. 1 day before the time ends they replied saying that the fixed the invoice. But they didn't. I contacted them in Facebook (they didn't replied the ticket) and they responded as:
"If you requested before expire invoice it will be accept to monthly if not must be renew after that bill you can change to monthly sir!"
"The request changing to monthly accepted after expiring but its not working now! You need to renew then it will be changed to monthly automatically.."
So they wanted me to pay for a year of service before they change it to monthly!!! How about that?
I have to mention here that I paid 20$ to my credit balance in my regxa account just to be sure they will be paid for the monthly invoice that never made. The kept these money and send me today an invoice of the above amount as a "late fee"!!! Late fee of what???
If I was in front of them I would just punch them in their faces! STAY AWAY from these
I was a site5 customer since 2006. In 2017, a few months before my plan was scheduled to auto-renew for another two-year term...展開
, I switched my site to a cheaper plan. Site5 refunded the unused portion of my old plan; however, I did not realize until recently that they had never cancelled the billing for the old plan, and it renewed in 2018 for another two-year term even while my new plan for the same domain name was still active. My new plan also auto-renewed in 2019 for two more years. So for my last two two-year terms, I have been double-billed for the same website.
I was told via a site5 chat window that my old account could not be refunded while it is still active and was advised to place a cancellation request for my duplicate account, after which point a credit would be applied to my billing account. So that's what I did. When that request was processed, they cancelled BOTH plans and my web site ceased to function.
The following Monday morning I reopened a ticket and waited for a response. And waited. And waited. Finally, 66 HOURS later, I got a response. I was told that I had cancelled the wrong plan, that I should have cancelled the new plan instead, the one I had just renewed months earlier. Any mention of a refund is quickly met with a link to their refund policy, which essentially states NO refunds beyond the first 45 days for ANY reason. I can attest based on personal experience that "customer satisfaction" and "doing the right thing" aren't valid reasons.
So like many other site5 reviewers, I have noticed a decline in customer service the past few years. Their only support options are a ticket system or via chat window. It once was possible to call site5 and speak to someone local if an issue arose. Now, in their exact words: "As an Inbound Support Center, we do not provide a callback to our customers. I am sorry for it. We have discontinued the phone support."
One thing positive I will say about site5, their uptime is legitimately very good. Unfortunately, that alone isn't worth the slow and underwhelming support. There are too many other options. I switched to Complete Internet Solutions, which is not only cheaper with a price lock guarantee but provides quality customer service as well; my one issue was resolved via phone in less than an hour. I should have switched from site5 years ago.
