During this one-and-half decades, the company has survived two major economy crashes (dot-com and subprime mortgage crisis) and one big change in hosting business landscape (EIG acquired some of the biggest hosting brands). As 63% of U.S. IT businesses failed their first five years (and 71% of all businesses failed during their first 10 years), what IX achieved is simply remarkable.
My experience with IXWebHosting
I have signed up and tried IXWebHosting services once in 2012 and I am currently testing the web host for second time (thanks to Stepan who gave me a free account).
The attached link is an updated version of my IXWebHosting review (published on +Web Hosting Secret Revealed). In case you wonder if IX is right for you, this is the post to read.
In a nutshell, here are the pros and cons –
Generous dedicated IP offers – Dedicated IP is a big advantage for many!
Affordable – Great price in relation to features.
English-speaking customer service reps located onsite – Great feature especially for US customers.
Reliable server – 99.9% uptime guarantee (see IXWebHosting uptime review below).
Honest business practice – As mentioned, I bought an account in 2012 and cancelled within the free trial period. IXWebHosting refunded my money the next day with no question asked.
Control panel – not easy to use.
