SiteOne Internet Review
ProsThey were a great little joomla hosting company that is now out of business
ConsOut of business
Bottom LineNot much to say b/c they are now out of business.
SiteOne happy user review.
I'm new to having my own website. I was looking for a hosting service for a long time. Finally I have decided to join SiteOne mostly secondary to competitive price and basic description of their services.
I must admit I was lucky to choose SiteOne.
First of all the user / customer support is really reliable and quick. They also make extra step to help out with things they don't have to, In my example it was help with setting up Joomla account and it's configuration.
They quickly help you restore your passwords etc.
Simply you feel like you are not alone.
My happiness with SiteOne doesnt end here. In the meantime I had opened other websites with other hosting services, and really quickly regreted it. Some scripts and Joomla modules would not work on the other servers without additional upgrades (more $$$). Same modules would work on SiteOne without any upgrades.
I do recommend SiteOne.
I am actually thinking to move all of my websites to SiteOne. "
Pros and Cons
Servers are fast.
Many modules that need special upgrades ($$$) on other servers can be ran without issues and upgrades.
