Since 1998 IXWebHosting has been catering to small businesses, large corporations, and private websites. They are a truly rock-solid company that refreshingly acknowledges that things can and will go wrong and that they will be there for you 24/7 if and when they do. A lot of companies tell you that they are the best and nothing can ever go wrong, but that is just not the case. Things do go wrong, and albeit rarely with any of the companies on my list, IX Web Hosting will be there for you.
With their popular business plan IXWebHosting gives you a lot for your money 300 GB of space, 1500 GB of bandwidth, and the ability to host 8 domains. IX gives you even more for your money with freebies such as 3 free domain registrations for life, a free site builder, and free search engine submission. For just $2.50 more a month they will do the whole thing windows style, now that's a deal.
IXWebHosting is one of the most reliable web hosts around and they put their money where their mouth is. They guarantee that your hosting account will be up and running at least 99.9% of the time of any 12 month hosting period. If they do in fact fail to meet that stat in any given month, you will receive one full free month of hosting service. They can keep that promise because they use TWO firewalls to keep their network secure and since they do not allow any kind of shell access to any part of their network, your website is in very secure hands.
IXWebHosting provides all of their customers with the H-Sphere control panel. H-Sphere gives you centralized control over shopping carts, sub-domains, FTP, script manager, SSL support, affiliate programs, and you can easily set up over 20 PHP/MySQL applications, such as Blogs, CMS & Portals, Forums, and E-Commerce directly in the control panel. H-Sphere has a ton of features and a refined billing system to automate and improve your online tasks.
The IXWebHosting technical support center is open 24/ 7 to provide quality support for their customers around the clock. They have a knowledgeable staff that is ready to go via live chat, trouble tickets, and even a toll free number. Like every host on this list, I always try out their support and I can tell you someone was at my call within minutes.
