Arvixe ASP.NET web hosting is an affordable choice in the industry. Altogether there are two plans, which are priced from $5/mo and $8/mo. But for a monthly term, the costs are $8/mo and $11/mo respectively. Currently, no discount is available.
Arvixe ASP.NET hosting plans include 1 free domain, and the cheaper PersonalClass ASP plan supports 6 domains to be hosted on one account. Besides, Arvixe offers .NET Framework from 2.0 to 4.5, the latest ASP.NET MVC, and MSSQL 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2. These meet the requirements of most websites developed by Microsoft technology with daily page views under 400.
Generally speaking, Arvixe is able to provide ample server resources and most of the common features that are needed by the normal ASP.NET hosting users. However, developers may find it a little disappointing since some technologies are not supported, such as WebMatrix, Web Deploy and WebSockets. Besides, ASP.NET 5 and ASP.NET MVC 6 are currently no supported.
Another demerits of the ASP.NET hosting service offered by Arvixe is the below-average performance. According to monitoring, the uptime averages about 99.8% only, and the server responses take over 700ms. Those who need fast speed and high availability to support online businesses or projects should consider another provider.
Besides, Arvixe is not doing well in technical support. Although all customers are allowed to contact technical support via email, live chat and phone, the support service is actually slow and of little help.
