Arvixe review | hosting, VPS and managed dedicated servers

 

Arvixe hosting provides a wide range of developer friendly services including  .NET and Ruby on Rails to name just a few.

 

When you want to host a complicated application, Arvixe can usually handle it and in the past, has provided installation services.

They also offer Linux hosting with cPanel as well as ASP .NET with WebSitePanel.

 

 

THE GOOD / 

THE BAD / 

  • Linux and Windows hosting available
  • Hosting for as low as $4/mo + Free Domain Name
  • Dedicated Cloud Hosting available
  • Priority Support is extra
  • Long support wait times
  • Frequent outages

 

 

THE BOTTOMLINE /

Arvixe has become known to offer sub-par support after EIG purchase.


 

Their Personal Class hosting starts at $4/mo.

Their Business Class starts at $22/mo. The VPS or Virtual Private Server hosting starts at $40/mo and Dedicated Cloud hosting starts at $108/mo.

Priority support costs an addition $20/mo on each of these plans.

Over the past 12 months Arvixe has taken a huge drop in performance, in both the areas of site uptime and customer support.

Reports indicate that the company was sold recently to EIG – an investment group know for gobbling up hosting companies including HostGator.

 

 

 

 

 

Since that time, Arvixe has tried to keep up with demand but unfortunately, they have become a hosting provider to avoid at all costs.

The ticket system takes over 24 hours to get a response and the response is typically inept (such as asking for your ID or URL – this should be embedded in the ticket since you are logged in).

Then typically another 24 hour wait. There is a support chat and wait times for that are 20-30 minutes.

 

Many people have been complaining about Arvixe and bemoan the fact that they used to be a reputable and well run company.

Unfortunately, tech issues are overwhelming them to the point that many users have left or in the process of leaving.
