Arvixe Linux web hosting is affordable yet not quality enough. It's pricing at only $4/month, which is much cheaper than most of competitors. But at the same time, you have to pay attention that this price only applies to the 2-year term, and for other terms, the cost can be $7/mo.
What's good is the 60 days fully money back policy which is a guarantee for people who have complaints about this hosting package. However, note that there are some complaints found about the refund guarantee. Some users say that the company sometimes doesn't deal with refund requests properly. You may not be able to receive the refund within a long time.
Arvixe does provide some competitive features, such as 1 free domain, 6 hosted domains, $200 marketing credits, and multiple programming features including PHP, Ruby on Rails, Python, Perl, MySQL and PostgreSQL. The control panel cPanel
integrates with Softaculous that supports over 400 scripts, so that you can easily start your business, blog, e-commerce, album, forum and social network.
However, the following concerns about Arvixe need much attention.
- The uptime the company's shared Linux hosting is poor. As we have monitored, the average uptime is about 99.8% only, much worse than the guaranteed 99.9%. Some users have reported even worse uptime records.
- The speed of the servers are slow, too, as server responses usually take over 700ms. Besides, the downtimes also cause frequent latency.
- Arvixe provides poor technical support which has been criticized by thousands of users. The responses are very low - usually taking days.
