Arvixe Reviews

Read our expert opinion of Arvixe, along with unbiased reviews from 94 real users

Like so many other web hosting providers purchased by EIG, a great web host has been turned incredibly bad. Check out the rating over time graph in the review dashboard, and you will see a clear contrast when our user reviews turned from high praise to outright disgust.

We first took note on how bad things had become, after the Arvixe migration debacle, and how there was a total break down in the support provided by Arvixe, lost files, broken website resulting in the sacking of the majority of the Arvixe staff. As you can see from that article, many people lost their entire websites, and support response times are timed in weeks, not hours.

Editor's note: We hate to be negative about hosting providers, especially when we have past dealings with them, but for the time being we recommend you avoid EIG owned hosting providers. Fortunately, you can filter out all EIG-owned hosting providers in our Hosting Review tables.

Arvixe Shared Hosting Review

Arvixe Shared Hosting Plans allow a choice between Linux and Windows.

Arvixe offers many different packages, including Business Hosting, VPS, Reseller and Dedicated hosting.  For the purpose of this Arvixe review, however, we are focusing on their shared hosting Personal Class plans.  You have a choice between "Personal Class" and "Personal Class Pro".  These are identical save for the number of domains allowed on each plan.  If you only need to host six domains or less the Personal Class plan is sufficient.  There are no other differences between the plans that we can see.

Arvixe plansThe plans are pretty comprehensive in that they support cPanel, and all the usual features you will find on a cPanel host.  Also, you will have access to Softaculous, Cloudflare one click installer, Ruby on Rails as well as R1Soft backups (last two days two weeks backups available for instant restore).

Regarding hardware, both plans include Raid 10 SSD Drives for database queries (this is where 4 SSD drives are mounted together, 2 of which act in parallel for increased speed and 2 act as a backup to allow for continuation should any drive fail), as well Firewall for security and DDoS Attack response.  This makes dynamically driven sites much faster.

Arvixe Control Panel

We are very pleased to note that Arvixe uses the standard cPanel for their control panel.  Not only does this make it extremely easy to move host should you ever need to, but as one of the most popular control panels around you will hopefully find it very familiar.  Unlike some other major brands they have not customized the look of the cPanel (or functionality) so you should be able to find everything you want very quickly, and any tutorials you view will be instantly familiar.

Apart from the standard apps and utilities, you will see a section for SiteApps (one click solutions to expand the functionality of any website i.e. social sharing) and SEO & Marketing Tools.  At the bottom, there are icons for quick access to Arvixe site, billing, and support, as well as some usage statistics.

Arxixe Support

Arvixe had around 90 employees by the latter half of 2013, all of which work remotely.

In our Arvixe Review, we tested their support on multiple occasions, including one where we raised a simple query relating to DNS propagation time Nameservers.  It took around 2 hours to get a response, with follow-up questions being dealt with within about 20-30 minutes.  Of course, we could have had an instant response by chatting to them on live chat or telephone.  For international customers, note that their Skype name is "Arvixe" in case you wish to avoid any telephone charges.

When you create a support ticket, they will send you a link that then asks you to fine tune the relevant topic for the support query.  This is to ensure that the right support specialists get the most appropriate questions.  This is an excellent idea, showed by a knowledgeable technician was able to deal with our query quickly and effectively. We would much rather wait a little longer for someone to fix the solution rather than get a response from someone who is clueless, so Arvixe ticks those boxes quite nicely.

Update 8th October 2015 - We are getting a few reviews being left complaining of poor support and increased downtimes.  We suggest reading the user reviews and coming to your own conclusion.

Further Update: Arvixe support is terrible, with response times in days, not hours.

Main Features

Arvixe does not offer any features that make you go "wow", or anything unique, with perhaps the exception of SSD hosting.  They do however keep up with latest developments offering Clef Two-Factor Authentication with new WordPress installs as standard, as well as some pretty significant tie-ups for Image Hosting . We guess what they focus on is doing "ALL" the basics extremely well.  Unlike other hosts, they offer Windows hosting as well as Linux hosting (we advise using Linux hosting unless you need ASP), Ruby on the Rails as well as an excellent upgrade path with their Business Hosting or VPS hosting.

Of course, some features we should highlight are:

  • RVSiteBuilder - Nice easy site builder to get you started.
  • Cloudflare CDN-ready
  • Softaculous Script Installer - Install all the standard software such as Wordpress quickly
  • Free Cheverato Image Hosting Script - See this post for more information about this offer, and Chevereto.
  • Attacta SEO ready - Always useful to get some extra insights into your site.
  • Siteapps - One click apps to increase the functionality of your site quickly (social shares and other neat things)
  • Daily Backups -
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Choice of PHP
  • Git preinstalled - Something for the developers
  • Free domain for life (rather than for just the first year)
  • Relatively generous 60-day money back guarantee

Arvixe Uptime

To understand why Arvixe Uptime is so good, you need to know about their data center partner - Softlayer .  Softlayer, acquired by IBM in July 2013, provides data center services in multiple locations around the world.

We could not see any advertised uptime figures on the Arvixe site, although they do offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee and you get 60 days to try them out.  Unfortunately, as this is a fairly new Arvixe review we have not yet got any of our own uptime figures (from our own tracking of sites known to exist on their Servers) available for Arvixe.  However, our overall impressions from our research are that they do not have any significant problems with downtime, and indeed, this is pretty much confirmed by our readers Arvixe Reviews at the bottom of this page. We will, of course, monitor them and let you know if our opinions change.

The Speed Test

Even if you do not want to spend much money on a web host, you still want it to be fast. We gave Arvixe a spin with a standard theme we got off Themeforest which while a little bloated it does provide a good test to gauge the speed of the server as it includes include PHP stylesheets that can be notoriously slow to load. We optimized the site using the W3 Total Cache as well as CloudFlare.  This theme is specially built to show a vast difference between hosts so the load time will always be higher than your typical site.  If you were to put this site (Best Host News) on Arvixe server, we would imagine the load time would be at around the half second mark, which indicates how pleased we are with this test result. 

arvixe speed test

Value - Is Arvixe worth the money?

Arvixe has just two plans, with the only difference being the number of domains you can have on the account.  For just $4.00 per month if you sign up for two years for up to 6 domains this represents incredible value.  What's more, that is before you even apply a coupon, and we have some great exclusive offers on that front too.  At the moment, you can choose between a one-off discount of up to 30 percent or a lifetime discount of 10 percent .  If you check out our readers Arvixe Reviews, you will find this is frequently mentioned as one of the things people love about Arvixe.

Unlike other hosts that will charge $50 of more for an SSL certificate, Arvixe costs just $25 per year, and a dedicated IP is just $2 per month, so again there will be no hidden surprises there.  Their domain prices at $9.95 are pretty awesome too!

Arvixe Reviews - Summary

Pros

  • Great price – These guys have to be one of our favorite budget hosting providers. SSD hosting and great performance for $2.80 per month (with our Arvixe Coupons)? We'll have some of that thank you!
  • 60 Day Money Back Guarantee - Allows you to try them thoroughly out risk-free.
  • A particular drive to do better – Arvixe have shown superior business acumen and a clear drive with over a decade of success.
  • Great reputation – Arvixe has garnered a great reputation over the last 11 years since their creation.
  • SSD Storage for MySQL – As a budget host they have shown a great choice by balancing speed with functionality with their storage configuration. By using traditional storage for files, along with SSD for Databases you get the best of both worlds. Large amounts of storage, with increased speed for Database driven sites such as WordPress.
  • Generous Resource Allocation – While Unlimited Hosting is not unlimited (i.e. check the Terms and Conditions), Arvixe has one of the largest resource allocations for a budget host. They allow up to 2GB RAM (most hosts have this at 1GB), and 700 CPU seconds, as well as 500 physical processes (most have this at 25 or 50).
  • Cloudflare integration – Our favorite and free CDN that significantly boosts the speed of your site.
  • Cloud Linux – Cloud Linux is quickly becoming the industry standard for isolating accounts from each other for maximum security, as well as isolating resource usage. This means no one user can hog all the resources, or infect other hosting accounts on the same server if they get hacked.
  • cPanel – This is our favorite control panel for hosting. It is incredibly easy to use, and full backups can easily be made for offline storage that includes all settings including email, crons, etc. It also makes transferring to and from different hosting providers incredibly easy.
  • Free domain – This is for life, not just the first year of your account.

Arvixe Shared Hosting Review

Editor's Expert Opinion

Editor's opinion: Do we recommend Arvixe?

Before EIG purchased Arvixe last year, they were one of our Recommended hosting providers.  Unfortunately, we are seeing increasing complaints (about Support times, and down times) which have caused us to reconsider this status.  We recommend reading the latest user reviews below and coming to your own conclusion.

For the time being, we have removed Arvixe as one of our recommended hosting providers, and actively recommend that you avoid them at all costs.

My only comment is that apparently they have gone really, really downhill. I feel like they are trying to pretend nothing is wrong. I cannot trust company whatsoever.

Pros: When it works, it works. I originally chose them because they supported Windows servers at a fair price. Things were great until things came to a sudden halt.

Cons: A week ago, I was notified that our website was down. At first I could not access my server. I investigated and found a server report page that said our server was being migrated. They never warned us of this. The website is still down. I have tried calling. Often, I wait for half an hour and they hang up. Or it's just a busy signal. I have tried submitting tickets and they do not respond. I have tried chatting and it takes an hour if you're lucky enough to connect. They lied to me and told me my website worked fine, then back-tracked and told me the server is being migrated. My clients are completely unhappy as their business website is important. Time is money. We will not be renewing. I will be moving files just as soon as I can access via FTP. My development copy is not completely synced so I want the files from the server. I can log into cpanel so I might just manually download every file and go somewhere else. Very infuriating. Stay away!

Arvixe support took 4 days in mid Oct.2015 to fix their server configuration even after we told them exactly what to do. Two weeks later the identical situation happened and it's been 6 days. There has been NO phone support for 6 days and chat support is useless. Chat support wait times has been 2 hours+. One time I waited at 0 minutes queue for 45 minutes after waiting 2 hours.

We have had to move our website on an emergency basis just to get running again.
I would not recommend any EIG websites including Arvixe. If you value your time or your business steer clear of this hell hole.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No tech support
Misconfigured Server Twice in Oct.5
Does not care
Website down twice for 5 days+

Arvixe is down since October 1st, 2015 for our sites. Customer support non-existent. They just don't reply. They even don't reply to account closure requests. All tickets we submitted wrere ignored. Arvixe chat is unplugged.

We relocated to another host and will be calling our bank to chargeback these folks. Arvixe is not a company anymore as it looks it has been run into the ground. Total demise.

The fact that Arvixe has a rating above 0 tells me everything I need to know about being able to use besthostnews as a source for identifying reliable hosting providers. Arvixe no longer provides customer support. They fired all of their support staff. They took my money and did not respond all 10 of my support tickets over a 2 week period. Filed a charge back.

Pros: Cheap prices; get what you pay for.

Cons: Arvixe is a scam of a company

I joined Arvixe two years ago after my previous host left me high and dry, selling his company to an unscrupulous bigger one, and in the beginning Arvixe were great.

No downtime, fast server speeds, excellent support.

And then the warning signs appeared, and history looks as if it might repeat itself. Downtime, email not working, DNS issues, slow loading speeds, were all issues I had experienced previously when my old host gave up the ghost, and when Arvixe began to display the same issues it was time to leave.

Arvixe have seemingly been swallowed by a much larger company who have got rid of what made Arvixe a great host and instead employed a much inferior model.

Arvixe are a shadow of the company they were, and while their offering looks good at face value with plenty for your cash, it is unacceptable, especially if running a business to experience the sort of levels of downtime and incompetence that I did, and if you value your business online I'd look elsewhere.

5 years at Arvixe because of excellent service. That is no longer. I have spent 2 weeks trying to get email running, my DNS entries pointed to MY website not someone elses website. I have spent probably 10 hours in total waiting for customer support, submitted a dozen tickets and emails... all to no avail. They just brush me off and ignore my pleas for support. I even had to manually submit a POST request via Postman on their domains management page because their UI had a "bug" that would have prevented me from transferring my domain because I couldn't turn off private registration. The same thing happened to me when EIG bought WebHost4Life. I see a pattern here. No longer will I go with a small hoster that can be acquired like this. Its a megacorp from now on. EIG can go pound sand.

Pros: When everything is working its a decent blend of speed and features. The cpanel (when it works) shines.

Cons: Unfortunately nothing seems to work now... ever. All qualified support staff are gone and have been replaced by dollar-a-day dumbfracks. Keeping your business on Arvixe would be truly a bad decision. Caveat Emptor.

... my page is down on way to regular basis. I received 60 mails! within the last 10 days, from my Jetpack plugin, telling me my site is down .... sometimes for a few minutes sometimes for a few hours! I can`t work on my site (via Wordpress) and I can`T look at my site , beacuse it`S simply down.

HOW DID THEY MANAGE TO GET ALL THESES 5 STAR RATINGS?! SERIOUSLY. WHO WRITES THESE COMMENTS?

IT WORks SO BADLY AND UNRELIABLE AND IS SLOW TOO!

I wrote down the things I like about them in the pros and cons. BUT I purposly downrated them to put things a little in perspective. Because if my webpage is down lots of times it doesn`t matter if they have a 4 star customer service and a 5 star price - the site isn`t up and therefore 0 stars and if its up its slow ... 3 stars.

I use my webpage for my job (presentationwise) so I rely on that heavily.

YES IT`S CHEAP BUT THIS IS NO EXCUSE to NOT OR ONLY PARTIALLY DELIVER THE PRODUCT or SERVICE YOU PROMISE. I can except slow .. I mean it`s really cheap ... but not "not working at all" definitly not .. I still pay and you still ask for my money.

If you can`t afford to deliver the product you promised (having better servers and so on) and want to be paid for , the second you seal a contract with the customer ... you need to ask for more money or you need to leave the market .... or you declare this poor quality (equal to the price .. on your webpage)!

And another quaestion .... is ARVIXE somehow connected to

Pros: - cheap
- good and fast customer service
thats it ...

Cons: - doesn`t work reliable at all
- slow
- a lot of down time !!!
(I`m wondering how they managed to get all these 5 Star ratings

Arvixe is a scam...as a host client, i notice they are constantly being infected by CBL trojan spam virus's. This forces me to delist with spam blockers and lowers my website rep.

Customer service is not rude, they are hostile. Sometimes it takes over an hour just to receive support. They also refuse to help in many cases, like the one above.

They are con artists claiming the 99% uptime, recently they migrated to Texas, and never informed me, causing more down time

This is the third server they moved my websites to. A highly reliable server they assured me.
For 3 days my 3 websites are running intermittently below 60% up time.
Like 1 hour up, 20 min down, 15 min up, and so on.
E mail is sometimes working.
Support que was more than 400 minutes and the answers while friendly where meaningless, just the standard answers, we are working on it. Ticket response is poor.

The good, whenever the server is up all sites run smooth, response time is excellent.
Previous servers where even worse.

So I have no idea where any positive reports come from.

Pros: Features.
Excellent load times.

Cons: Unreliable uptime.
Support is slow and not always effective.
Download time of larger files is extremely slow.

For almost 1 week of searching what is the best hosting site and I found Arvixe nonetheless Incredible! Because when i get speedy response once i have to have aid from tech support team.Their sales staff is also fast and helped me when I wanted to upgrade an account, they figured out my credit for money paid on an existing plan, and I was in action in about five minutes. I got this excellent level of support when I was on their least expensive, "personal" plan. I think that says it all! I used arvixe promo so that I can save my money here Couponchief.com/arvixe I have had run into no problems and have been a user for 4 months now. Not only does Arvixe offer an amazing product and software, but they offer it at the best price on the market. 10/10 would recommend this to a friend.

this hosting service is terrible. it worked good for 1 month or so, but daily we have DNS problems, no website, no email. we are writing them daily to make it work. they solved it only for the first time and right now they are not even replying. 5 days ago they said ~Server XXXX is little loaded and that probably caused the DNS issue. If you want , we can migrate your account to any other server.~ i said yes, and... nothing happened. We'll move to another hosting service, too bad we paid in advance.

Pros: first month ok

Cons: server is down for 5 days. no answer

I was searching online for a quality hosting site in the recent past and the search wasn’t going to well. There were a few hosting services that looked promising, but seemed downright expensive and did not fit my budget. While, there were others that did not have good reviews. I came across Arvixe and thought that it was the right fit and that I should go ahead with it. Let’s take a look at how my experience with this option went and whether or not I recommend it to those who are looking to find a quality hosting provider as soon as possible.

This is the most important benefit that any hosting provider can deliver. If the performance is not good enough, everything else goes out the window in terms of relevance. Arivise is definitely a high quality provider because there was no downtime when I used it and the memory along with overall quality being offered was hard to find anywhere else. The pricing along with the performance as a whole made it a downright winner in my eyes. I don’t think I will ever find anything better than this in regards to the complete package that was being brought to the table.

There are many business owners that might be looking to use this as their go to option and it is indeed a winner in this regard. They have a series of ‘bonus’ offers that can really drive down the costs and ensure you are still getting a great deal in terms of performance and cost. This is something that mattered a lot to me and I took advantage of it when I was carving out a deal with them.

There is truly no reason to go with anyone else, if you are looking to find a business solution online.

I had to bring this up because the customer support was fantastic right from the get go. I was unsure about how the experience was going to go and I knew I had to speak with them in regards to my account information. I contacted them and they immediately started to correct my issue without being forced or having to be persuaded as I have had to do with other options. I really enjoyed their approach and the support that was in place. They really cared about the process and how I felt which was nice.

Overall, Arvixe is one of the better options that I have come across on the market, if not the best one. It is truly a professional set up and I have to say the support team was excellent whenever I needed them (which was rare) and they truly have the infrastructure down to make everything work smoothly. It really showcases that this is not a hosting provider that is mucking around and wasting time to make a quick buck. They are going to be around for a long time and I definitely plan on using them consistently.

Arvixe has an incredible hosting platform. It comes with numerous plans, programs and resources. The cpanel access for all of our websites makes managing our websites and life so much easier. Database management, sub-domain management and domain management are all very easy, Setting up these things are all very easy as well. Many resource programs are available to use for supplementing each individual site. Arvixe offers a wide selection of third party programs. They are very easy to install and run.

Overall I am very happy with Arvixe. The only negative one in my opinion is the company’s online chat support. I think it is weak. However, I can always work around to get the answers I need. It’s a very small negative though.

We use Arvixe for our development sites, and they are by far the best company we have used. Whilst their customer service is very good, we would add that we barely need to contact them as the hosting just works. Uptime is really good, and because they focus on doing the basics really we never have an issues with anything.

Arvixe offers free unlimited diskspace and bandwidth for an incredible price of only $4 per month. I earn more from ads than that. I think the ordinary plan is more than enough for the type of business blog that I run.
The website builder and HTML editor allow me to view small popups ahead of time before I add them to my website. Having unlimited email accounts as well as forwards is very nice. In addition to MYSQL and PHP, they support Ruby and Perl as well.
For just another two dollars, you can buy a unique IP to use with your website. This is something that I strongly recommend, especially at that price. You can save another dollar by just using a couple of coupons.

My Experience With Arvixe

I used to write a blog on a free domain since five years ago. Recently, I received a domain name for my birthday. That was very nice, but the person who gave me the domain name didn’t buy me hosting, so I had to look and find something on my own.

After through consideration and comparisons between various hosting plans, I decided to go for Arvixe Hosting. I liked their prices, to be honest. At $3.27 per month, they are very hard to beat. In this money you get unlimited disk space and data transfer. You also get a free domain name, but I already had mine, so I requested one for my best friend, so that we can blog together about the things we love.

My hosting account was very easy to setup. However, I had some issues I didn’t know how to solve, so I called the support service. Believe me, this was the best experience I’ve ever had in my life with customer support. Not only they took my request at a very late hour, but they solved my problems within a few minutes. Moreover, they helped me transfer my website for free.

I bought a shared hosting account for now, as I don’t expect a huge flow of traffic during the next two or three months. When the site will become bigger, I intend to switch to VPS hosting, so I was pleased to notice Arvixe offers a manage VPS hosting option, too.

If you need hosting and you don’t know what to choose, I’d recommend Arvixe. Their customer support rocks, their servers are fast and you get a 60 day money back guarantee anyway, so if you are not happy, you can simply ask for a refund and move your websites elsewhere. I’m sure this won’t be the case, though.

If you are checking out this review to see whether you will be signing up with Arvixe then stop delaying. Arvixe is the best hosting service I have ever been with. When I joined up they migrated all my sites for me within an hour or two, and everything worked flawlessly. Uptime has been really good, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to everyone who asks. Thanks Arvixe!

Took me about 2 minutes to setup the account, and have had no problems since. Their livechat support is second to none when you want to ask stupid questions how to setup an email account. The support guys are really friendly and very helpful.

Overall, my WordPress site runs very fast, and have not had any problems like I did at my last host where there would be frequent downtimes, plus I pay alot less too!

Arvixe is a great service! It was very easy to get my account set up and is really a good deal. In the year that I have had the service, I only had one problem come up (the disk was full). A very helpful and friendly service representative resolved the issue very promptly for me.

Excellent Value For Money

Sometimes in life we come across something that we want to spend the time telling others about. When it comes to reviewing a product, I usually find myself only doing so when I am unhappy with something. This is true of most people, which is why negative reviews should be taken as only a guide and not fact. I rarely go online to publish a positive review unless it is something that really deserves it, but Arvixe Hosting is worth taking the time out of my busy life to post information on how good they are.

Before selecting a host, I always have a number of questions to ask. So, I send these questions off to the support, and how fast they respond, and the answers they give, can help me make my choice. Arvixe support proved to be very good. That for me is one of the main selling points of this host. There is nothing worse than discovering your site is offline, and being unable to get hold of someone to fix it for you. It is bad enough if that happens to someone running a personal site, but for a business it can prove to be a disaster.

I use Arvixes VPS, and compared to the dedicated server I used to pay for with another host, the VPS is cheaper, more stable, and serves up the pages faster. To say I am happy with this is an understatement. With the bonus of having full root access, and an excellent control panel in cPanel, I can fully manage the server myself. One bonus with a VPS is that it is very easy to upgrade. So, if you need more resources due to growth, it is never an issue. Having a quality and stable host can make your online life so much easier.

Arvixe provides great customer support and excellent service. Even when something takes a bit longer to be solved, they do their best to keep you informed and that you are being helped as quickly as possible.

They never hesitate escalating something if necessary, so you know the problem will get resolved.

They also have real good uptime. I’ve only experienced a few minutes of downtime during the year that I’ve had the service. Overall, I really can’t recommend Arvixe enough. Their Windows Servers also have an excellent price.

I was an ex customer who cancelled the subscription for Arvixe services. The reasons for that- poor online tech support service, lack of personal attitude towards the customers and slow, clumsy replies to support tickets. Also my website got hacked the very first day of my trial there.

Service support is the only thing that Arvixe needs to fix. Just a couple of them are really making the company look bad and giving it a bad reputation. They are not all the same. However, sometimes they take a really long time to respond, speak in strange English and provide ridiculous answers. However, if you are lucky enough to get a good support person, they will solve your problem right away! So when it comes to Arvixe, that’s really the only thing I have an issue with.

However, in terms of the hosting service itself, there’s nothing you can compare Arvixe with. They provide more features than what they advertise, which is amazing. This isn’t the first experience I have had with a hosting company. Over the last five years, I have used several different hosting services. Now I have found the very best one. Trust me, especially if you are a user coming over from another shared hosting plan, Arvixe is the king of shared hosting plans. Arvixe has several locations to choose from, have rich cpanel features and a price that is unbeatable. Arvixe is the simply the finest hosting company, and this makes them so valuable. Their prices on dedicated, vps, shared hosting and other addons are really unbelievable. Not only that, with a couple new Hong Kong locations added, even Asians an enjoy the most powerful and cheapest hosting that is offered.

If this hosting company would only provide excellent support like Inmotion does. Arvixe is the most affordable and powerful hosting service in the world. All they need to do is fix their service support problem.

Being a business owner, it is important that I have an online presence. I see many companies in my local area struggling to get by, and one of the reasons is that they do not have a website. I have been running my business site for a few years, and after problems with my previous host due to the support dwindled away to nothing, I found Arvixe. As my online side of the business brings in around forty percent of my sales, it was important to spend a few days researching hosts. So, after I had decided on one, it was because I had checked it out in depth, and it ticked all of the boxes.

One of the biggest selling points was that I found a lot of reviews that mentioned excellent support. For any business owner, this is very important. An issue with the site or the server can mean lost sales, and so getting any problems sorted out as quickly as possible is essential. With a lot of hosts, it can be more than a day to get a response, and that means a whole days profit has vanished. On top of that, those customers are unlikely to visit the site again, and it is not easy getting traffic in the first place.

After the support comes the control panel. Most users have no idea of the importance of the CP, but if you want to run a site and have access to every option you can think of, then cPanel is the only option. Some hosts supply bespoke control panels, and in the majority of cases they are terrible. I have always preferred cPanel, as it is the most powerful available, and I have tried most others in the past. Host selection is important for anyone who runs a website, and I am very happy with my choice.

I have been with Arvixe for about 6 months now, and have had virtually no downtime. Support is always friendly, and my site loads reliably and reasonably fast. Definitely recommend Arvixe over some of the bigger brands I have been with. Great.

For 3 years, I have been using Arvixe for clients of mine that wanted to start with web host reselling. Arvixe is very convenient and affordable. Their support is very apt and fast. I have always really liked Arvixe. Even while I was still doing web design work, all of my clients knew that Arvixe was the best company to go with. Their interface is beautiful, user friendly and robust. You can rest assured that they will provide you with great service.

In the beginning, I believe Arvixe only offered average inexpensive hosting like so many others. I was really surprised that they offer excellent services and support, even for their shared hosting plan. It is the finest hosting I have experienced so far.

If you are looking for hosting, Arvixe is a good choice. They provide excellent performance for production sites, and also provide uncommon features that include a nearly unlimited amount of space and accounts, in addition to support for add-on domains for a minor fee. This is the best choice available, considering the constant change in which the slow, old php on the internet is being replaced with various server-side scripting language support, such as a fast database like MongoDB backing NodeJs, which most competitors do not have.

Arvixe is terrible! I have been a highly disappointed customer in their company support, as well as some of their business tactics, in which they hold down your business, causing your income to be entirely too reliant upon their service. I’ve had an account with them for 3+ years now, and had to deal with a lot of nonsense, especially when dealing with outages, causing my clients to be frustrated with me. In the past, they have provided me with some good service, but in general, their support has always been terrible. Arvixe, you have disappointed me greatly, considering that you should know better as a company than to practice business this way.

Despite my young age, I feel the need to let people know that Arvixe is a fantastic hosting company. They provide many good features and rarely have downtime. Most software that I use is compatible with them. Other companies that I’ve used such as GoDaddy, InterServer, and Neq3Premium has not been able to compare with the service I’ve gotten with Arvixe.

Their support is absurd. My tickets are closed with anybody contacting me in order to fix my problem. All i get is automated responses saying they have closed my tickets. Whenever support does manage to contact me, which is very rare, they offer some kind of workaround for the problem that works in the short term, but doesn’t solve what the actual problem is.

Their uptime is okay but not great. They have regular module updates, full cpanel and plenty of features, but they just aren’t worth it. Their support is outsourced to India. They are probably underpaid and performed by mediocre so-called “experts” who are lazy, overworked or both. I am taking my business somewhere else.

I am using Arvixe’s shared hosting plan. I really love all the features they offer. Arvixe rocks! The following features are the ones I really like:

1. Extremely responsive support team
2. Excellent uptime
3. Node.JS Hosting on shared server
4. Softaculous installer

I recommended Arvixe to a couple of my customers. Nothing has changed my mind so far to not keeping using and recommending their services.

It takes 1 to 3 days for all of my problems with Arvixe to get fixed. I have to submit tickets, and then also go into chat to remind them to work on my issue. Yesterday I asked that my website be restored. During the WordPress 3.0 update process, my website’s images were seriously damaged somehow. They told me there was a backup for 4/14 that was prior to the WordPress 3.9 released.

They told me they would restore my site. It didn’t get done yesterday. Then their server had a new update. So I have an update and a broken website. Their customer service is non-existent to terrible. Whenever you do manage to get some help they take a very long time.

I really need to find another hosting company that will be responsive to my needs. The guys at Arvixe really don’t care.

I wish I could like Arvixe. Their support responds pretty quickly and the price is great. However, whenever I check on my websites, they are almost always down. I submit my problem to support over and over again. However, the situation hasn’t improved.

My website goes down several times each day. Every time they come up with a different excuse. They did move to a different service. Supposedly that help things somewhat. However, my site still is going down around 7 to 8 times each day. Before I didn’t monitor it so closely. I now realize this is a serious issued. I have asked them to move my site to a stable service. Otherwise, I will leave.
