Run for the hills if you are thinking of signing up with ix. The adage, “you get what you pay for” is most appropriate. Unlimited web space? HAH! Suspended my account after it hit 60 GB without any notice.

And yes they suspended me once too, after I called tech support, they said I was violating the TOS. I was not as I was trying to get my WordPress installed. I called them and after I cussed them out on the phone, I had to get really mad until they fixed things. If you use IX you will be sorry. I hate to say that but, I dont want others to experience the grief I have. Yes they are cheap, but you get what you pay for and I would rather pay more and get something reliable and something I can count on. You simply cannot count for IX webhosting for hosting a simple wordpress site. Page cannot display happens all the time.

I have had ixwebhosting since 9/2007, I do not recommend them at all. STAY AWAY. You will be sorry if you choose them because, half the time the pages on my simple WORDPRESS blogs do not display. The tech support chat is totally useless. I am in the process of changing hosting companies as I type this. The slow response has been a damage to my reputation. DO NOT USE them, they are total hype. I am glad I didnt rely on them more, I have several domains I am developing.

DONT EVER HOST WITH THEM!!! This company is a fraudelent Company!I had “Unlimited Pro” account with them after 6 months (after the number of my visitors growed). THEY DID DIRECTLY AND WIHTOUT ANY WARNINGS SUPSPEND MY ACCOUNT!! If you have more than 50 vistiors a day, IXWEBHOSTING WILL SUSPEND YOU and the most bad thing is- in the beginning, you will read “ACCOUNT SUPSENDED” and they put their own material ADVERTISING WITH SEX-LINKS ON YOUR WEBSITE!!!

DONT BELIVE WHAT THEY SAY!!! DONT BELIVE ON MONEY BACK GUARANTEE- YOU WILL NEVER SEE YOU MONEY AGAIN!!

I get the following message each time I report the problem to their livechat:Sorry, unfortunately I can’t resolve this issue, please create a ticket to our administrators and they will help to solve your problem. You can create a ticket from your control panel -> 24\7 help desk – ticket center.

And when I create a ticket, I would get a reply from them that should I get anymore error, please contact our live chat immediately. And when I contact the livechat, they would tell me the problem cannot be resolved by livechat, please create a ticket. Good grief! this fraudulent company should be investigated.

ixwebhosting.com is the worst hosting company exist. I have a very simple wordpress blog, and almost 90% of the time I cannot get to my web site. Each time I try to access my site, I get the ‘error establishing database connection’. When I asked them, they said that such problem is difficult to resolve because it’s a shared mysql server, it is possible that other users are abusing their server and it will take them time to find the users who abuse their servers and then they would mark my case as resolved. There tech support is horrible. The livechat is useless and waste of time. I have already send in my request to cancel my account.

Value for money. Great for starting out but they have a few weaknesses…
The email system they use is SLOWWW and un-reliable
You need to resolve (= be patient and wait) your own problems.
Great for a non- critical site with not too much traffic.
For a mission critical site, you will need to fork out more $$$s

Okay, just letting everyone know that the server is down again. This is really way too much. I think it’s time to move away from ixwebhosting servers. Not reliable. Timestamp Location Result Size Time

I gave ixwebhosting a try. Right now at this moment, the server is down for 3 hours and i am still waiting for someone to fix it. I am told they send an email to their admin but what does that mean? I asked them to contact the tech support but they said they sent an email. I don’t know how much longer the server will be down. I will let everyone know when it is fixed. The server down is ns13.ixwebhosting.com and ns14.ixwebhosting.com.

IXWH has problems on occasion, like all hosting companies, and I’ll be the first to say I’ve been frustrated a few times. But, much of the complaints I’ve read here are obviously due to user error. I’ve been with them for over 5 years, and my site has been down once. That was when they recently moved their boxes to Ohio. For the money, they’re hard to beat. Put a bunch of salt on the loudest complaints. Especially the one from the idiot ex-employee that had his paycheck screwed-up. That’s hilarious.
 
Brian, 05th 2008f June, 2008
Where was this site before I stupidly signed up with these yuts. What a horrible mistake. Web site goes down every 3-4 days. Yes, they get it up as soon as I complain, but that is not the point. Their servers are OVERLOADED and crash often!
 
Sorry_no_good, 05th 2008f June, 2008
I know, I know, for the price you shouldn’t complain. But this service is not that good, even for a basic site.
I signed up and in the first night had major trouble. I use PHP emails on most of my sites, and in all cases the PHP mail server was BAD!! It took nearly 48 hours for some emails and many did not arrive at all. They apparently had this problem for months and still did not have it solved. Their Tech Support ticket system took days to respond and that was not good. Their live chat always resulted in them saying something like, “we cannot help you now, please raise a ticket”. Their service center would promise calls from tech support people, and again these would take days to call you.
They offer you free months hosting when you complain, but that does not solve the issue. I cancelled within 4 days of hosting with them and moved to Bluehost. Bluehost has been a good option for me though I know others don’t like it, I think it’s a great service.
 
bob smith, 04th 2008f June, 2008
I worked for this company. The company that hosts is called IXWEBHOSTING. The callcenter for help is called Ecommerce. Located in Hopkinsville KY. They are a bunch of unprofessional screw ups. They lie to the customers and tell them whatever to get them off the phones. I know because I did it. They are also in with a bunch of Ukrainians. Prolly the Russian Mafia or something. Whole thing is shady. Too many people on the servers.. too much traffic. They won’t do crap for you.
They mess up the employees checks and crap.. they are ghetto.

Mail servers again are taking over 24 hours to process mail in. Don’t use them if your rely on prompt email
 
Jay, 04th 2008f June, 2008
The email is down many times per week at a minimum. This has been going on for about 6 months. They finally said it was the server I was on, and could move me,but my mail would be down (delayed) for up to 48 hours due to DNS propagation (routing). I said: why not just replace or fix the server, since it’s gotta be affecting others. Copy the info, unplu the bad one and plug in the new one. Downtime of minutes maybe?That’s the reason I left my last host (adaptive.net). After 7 or 8 years, they went to heck too.

If you rely on your email, as we do in our business, don’t use IXwebhosting.

 
p_at_c, 01st 2008f June, 2008
oops it is THIS reating site that gave my hosting company a goo uptime rating – sorry it ws webhotingstuff.com that more realistically dropped them……
 
p_at_c, 01st 2008f June, 2008
Well I have read all the recent reviews and realise that one cannot rely on the ratings of these review sites as the posted reviews are very negative and yet the the company under review is at the top of the ratings list – makes one think………my own hosting company was dropped from this review site owing to 0% uptime over a monitoring period BUT gets a high rating for uptime on another ratings site (sigh)…
