Average Ratings for IX Web Hosting


Ben Walsh31 Jul 07, 15:319 out of 10
I have never had problems with IXwebhosting. Their support is top notch and my websites experienced only minor problems - due to bad scripting from my side.

I have read a lot of negative reviews about IX. I also know some people who experienced down times etc. and found that most of the time it is due to badly written PHP or MySQL scripts.
Their support operators are friendly and always gave me a direct and correct answer.

I would definitely recommend IX for people that know their way around the different scripting languages and are looking for a top web host at an affordable price.

My verdict of the bad reviews of IX is as follow: If you cannot play golf, it is not the golf course that is bad. If you cannot write proper scripts, it is not IX, or any other host for that matter, that is bad.
Thanks IX for a great and the best hosting experience!

IX web hosting allows me to send as many emails as I want per hour, No maximum emails allows me to conduct my business (not spam ;) ) without having to worry about being suspended. They have a really knowledgeable support team who helped me set up a few dedicated IP's and install my SSL certificate for my ecommerce site. I've been with them for 2 and a half years and am very pleased with the service so far!

They`re cheap, but you get what you pay for. The tech support isn`t nearly as good as it claims to be. If it`s a simple matter that can be handled in the on-line chat, great, but their response to trouble tickets takes entirely too long. I requested my site to be restored from back-up, for example, but it took so long for them to respond that there were no back-ups dating prior to my request date. Apparently they don`t keep back-ups around too long either - less than seven days - which is not only unprofessional and incompetent, but renders the back-ups useless since it takes them so long to respond to your requests.

I have been with 2 two other hosts and IX web-hosting has treated me the best. They helped me transfer my website and my database without any downtime. I have contacted there support who are very helpful too. They have very good prices and plans for shared hosting so I switched to them. I would recommend IX to anyone who is looking for a long term hosting company. Thanks IX Web Hosting ;)

I have user IX Web Hosting for 3 years now and have 5 Domains registered, some static and some merchants. I have been managing web sites for over 10 years and IX is the best I have dealt with to date. At one point I ran my own servers so I know what its like to provide 100% reliability, impossible.

I love the management control panel. It is feature rich and with just a little initial learning time has proved easy to use.

I share others opinion of Web Shell and do not use it. I create web sites with far better tools on a laptop and then FTP them up to IX's server. Much easier and allows greater control on what the site can offer.

As with most things in life, the only good news is bad news - most people can't be bothered to report things that are OK, so the balance of reviews on this site is bound to be negative.

I currently own or control 15 domains, and am now into my second year with IXWH on their Platinum or equivalent package.

I moved hosting to them because I found a magazine review giving them excellent scores on all fronts, as I was extremely frustrated with my previous host (who still is my registrar).

I've had the occasional downtime, phoned up to find that I knew even before the support team, but within a short while everything was back to normal.

I find the control panel excellent, giving me control over as much as, and more than in need.

I also find the live chat my favourite method of communication.

My previous host (my registrar) seems to use entirely foreign (latest are in the Phillipines [I asked]) technical support who although can *speak* English, can barely *understand* it, and appear to be reading from scripts.

This is confirmed in my mind, as on the odd occasion when I need to speak to them, I always get a follow-up email asking me for my opinion of the support.

No service provider or host can give 100%; something has to go wrong occasionally, but IXWH gets my vote.

I was with a small hosting company for sometime, then moved to Godaddy and stayed with them for 1 year. In the last 6 years I have tried quite a few. Ixwebhosting has proved excellent. Their control panel gives me access to so many functions, including MySQL, and other db capabilities. Everything runs smooth and downtime as been less than 0.001%.

I have been with IX Web Hosting for very long and have tried other hosting companies but never been this satisfied. I live in California and my website is my main source of income so having a reliable company is very important. I get to speak with someone on the phone and the staff is very friendly at IX web hosting. Very happy customer here, great work guys.

I have been with many web hosting companies and I am totally impressed with IX. The tech support is very good, phone support is just OK, but the online help ticket system they have in place is AWESOME. All of my online ticket requests have been responded to in under 30 minutes. I put in an email suggestion to the president of the company, and within 5 minutes I received a phone call from the president's representative to discuss my suggestion. Only down side right now is they are not a full registar of domain names so you can't perform a complete transfer to IX,(that was my suggestion). The representative stated that they are in the process of becoming a full domain registar. I will be staying with IX and enjoying the customer service, great prices, and loads of storage and bandwidth. Great control panel software. Well worth the wait for the full domain registar service in the future. AWESOME hosting company, best in class right now.
