IX Web Hosting

If you’re looking for a budget priced Virtual Private Server hosting plan, but you don’t want to miss out on advanced features, IX Web Hosting has several VPS plans that are extremely well priced. All of their plans come with a “No Questions Asked” 30-day money back guarantee and feature instant activation. For this review, we’re going to take a look at their Business Plan, which starts at just $9.95 per month.

This plan comes with 20 gigs of disk space and 300 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is extremely generous, given the monthly price. This puts this VPS plan into the same league as a small dedicated server, without the hefty price tag. There is a $30 set-up fee for this account, but this fee is waived if you purchase at least a year’s worth of hosting in advance. Currently, IX Web Hosting bills on a quarterly basis, but with their money back guarantee, you shouldn’t have to worry if you end up not liking their services.

You’ll get 5000 email addresses and FTP accounts, which should be more than enough for the average site or even a reseller business. We usually like to see unlimited email addresses and FTP accounts with a VPS server, but these limits are high enough that most sites should be all right. The only major downfall of this plan is that only 50 MySQL and 50 MS SQL databases are offered. If you were planning on using this plan for a reseller business, that may put a kink in what you can offer your own customers. However, for sites that just need extra space, this should be more than enough.

Studio Web is included free of charge, as well as several other tools to keep your site running smoothly. Streaming for Flash, MP3 , Real Audio and QuickTime is supported, and support is also offered for CGI-BIN, Perl, PHP, WAP, FrontPage and DreamWeaver.

Perhaps the best feature for this plan is the one-hour support guarantee and the toll-free telephone support that is available 24/7. A hosting plan is only as good as it’s support system and IX Web Hosting has certainly made sure that you’ll have all the support options you need. Overall, this plan is insanely well priced and should pack enough power for even large business sites. It’s easy to see why IX Web Hosting has won so many awards.
