Hey folks, today I’ll be discussing one of the most grown hosting company arivixe.com.
To start with any details first I would like to discuss why a good host is an important aspect of your online presence and how it can affect your business.
A good hosting for your website has many advantages and benefits over other non-reliable hostings available out there in the market. Some features of a quality host can be a very good technical support that is reliable and can revert quickly when any problem arises, maximum uptime which makes sure you don’t loose and customers or visitors as its not only a loss in your business, but it too gives a negative impression as well.
Some other features that I look at are the amount of storage and bandwidth, some domains that can be hosted, email account, and features, framework support and shell access (rarely used).
There are some other things that people look at these days that include a free domain and free marketing coupons(Google AdWords, Facebook, Bing), etc.
Coming to arvixe.com, the hosting company has grown since years and has been in this business since 2003.
The company’s website has grown its authority and now possess a domain authority of 91 and page authority of 88, talking about the social profiles what I found was it has 15k Facebook fans, 2.8k Twitter followers 1276 google plus followers as well, claiming to be old and reliable company and over 3 million websites hosted on their servers I was expecting these figures to be much higher but these figures can be trusted and satisfactory as most of the people don’t give a dam following a hosting company on their personal social profiles.
So what all one can expect from them before even using them is 60 days money back guarantee with every plan, 99.9% uptime which is extremely good if you get it, a 24 hours support with a live chat option (no reply even after 15 minutes of waiting), though phone support is provided for the US only, free website transfer is too available, returning customer discount is provided, no hidden fee except which is mentioned in the pricing and automatic setup as well, these are few basic things that one should expect from a good hosting provider and arvixe is providing all these.
One of the best part about hosting your blog or website with arvixe.com is that all of the customers get a free domain name for lifetime, which actually makes it more cost effective, and this saves you around $10-15 annually. This is a bonus point when comparing to any other hosting company as you may get a free domain for a single year with much hosting companies but here you get the free domain for lifetime, this is valid only till you are hosting your site with them.
Let me now discuss with you guys the hosting plans offered by arvixe.com, the company offer’s five different hosting plans that one can choose to depend upon the requirements and a choice, these plans a Personal class, Business Class, Reseller Class, VPS Class and Dedicated class, all these hosting plans have different configurations and differences, let us discuss about different plans and their configurations.
Starting with personal class hosting, its a Linux shared hosting which is one of the most commonly used web hosting on the web, it’s used mostly by bloggers and small business owners as they don’t have very high traffic site and limited customers and visitors, this type of hosting is one of the best if you are trying WordPress, Drupal or Joomla.

If you want to host you, asp.net site you can do so at a reasonable cost of $5 for hosting six domains and for $8 for unlimited domains.
Looking at add-ons you can purchase priority support at $20/month and an SSL certificate for $25/year. (Using SSL certificate makes the site look more authoritative and is now an SEO factor.
Talking about the Business plan, it increases reliability and increase uptime by decreasing the number of persons on each server. You get all same stuff as in a personal class plan added an SSL certificate for life in this plan and this cost you $22 for six domains and $35 for unlimited domains.
It thus is more reliable than the personal plan. You can host six asp.net sites for $27 and unlimited no of sites at $40. You can have a complete look at the business plan here. The only addon you can take with this plan is priority support that is available at $20 per month.
