NOCIX provides everything you'd need as a professional system administrator for the purpose of keeping your infrastructure running smoothly. I've checked and compared everything from the network speed...Read More, pricing, speed of customer service and even ran a command against my with them to check what hardware they are using (Which is fairly new compared to that of hosts like 1and1 who give you old dying hardware). This company provides unmanaged hosting (so don't expect anything more than DC tasks), but they are quick, to the point and very professional. The complaints about spammers may not be from their actual clientele and I therefore I would ignore those since anyone experienced in this field is familiar with the fact that spam causing malware runs rampant among all hosts, not just nocix, but not all hosts literally have a section of their client's portals dedicated to replying to and complying with requests for resolution of abuse complaints (this shows they are working on it, I've had hosting with companies that didnt care one bit). If you are a pro and can manage all your own stuff (and perhaps are a startup too), nocix.net is it for you, look no further because I promise you'll be missing out big!Less

Expert Overview

VPS & Dedicated Servers

NOCIX was formerly known as DataShack, is a good hosting provider based out of Kansas City, MO.  They specialize in helping customers get the hosting they need without over paying.  They only offer VPS and dedicated hosting though, so if you require shared hosting then you will need to go somewhere else.  The company has been helping customers for years with good quality hosting solutions.

In addition to the hosting, they also offer data backup services.  This is a good option for companies that want to keep all their important data nice and stable.  No matter which of the hosting packages you choose, you will certainly have a good overall experience.

Uptime & Reliability

Stable Hosting Environment

The servers available with this company are quite stable and there is no worry of excessive downtime.  I didn’t see any type of uptime guarantee, but since they use only good hardware (even if it isn’t the most powerful) it isn’t likely that you’ll experience any prolonged downtime.  The data center that they use also has redundant network connections and power supplies so you can be sure that everything will be up and running for your site’s visitors when they need it.

Features

Very Nice Hosting Packages

While this company only offers VPS and dedicated, they do a good job at making sure the quality of each one is great (while still keeping the prices down).  The VPS solution page has five options to choose from.  The packages range from 20 to 80 gigs of disk space, all of which is on solid state drives for stability and speed.  You will get 512 megs of RAM at the entry level package and it goes up to 8 gigs for the most popular VPS solution.  They do limit you on bandwidth, but it is quite generous at 2-10 TB.

If you would like a dedicated server you will have a lot of options to choose from.  With so many options available it is impractical to list all the specs here, but suffice it to say that they have something for anyone from small sites to those that are fairly large.  You’ll find that they use either Intel or AMD processors, so you will have an option to go with exactly what you want.

Support

Limited Info on Tech Support

They do have technical support available to help you with anything you need, though I haven’t been able to find too much information about how quickly they respond or anything like that.  This is not necessarily a problem since I also didn’t find people complaining.  It seems that they will be able to help you with anything you need, but make sure you know whether you are signing up for a managed or unmanaged server before you get started to help avoid any type of surprise.

Pricing

Very Affordable Hosting

No matter which of the hosting packages you choose you will find that the prices are very low.  For the lowest end dedicated server as an example, you will only pay $25 per month.  This is very affordable for a dedicated server.  Of course, it isn’t a high end server but for those who like the control of a dedicated server but don’t need a very powerful rig, this is a great option.  The prices only go up just over $100 per month for dedicated servers so that isn’t too bad at all.

User Friendly

Easy to Use Hosting Provider

NOCIX has done a good job at keeping everything nice and simple for all the hosting services they offer.  Whether you choose a VPS server or a dedicated solution, you can see exactly what you are getting and the price is clearly identified.  While there are a lot of options to consider, they are only on two pages so you can quickly compare the different choices.

Summary

Nice Affordable Hosting

If you’re shopping for a good reliable VPS or dedicated server at a low price, this is an excellent company to consider.  Keep in mind that they don’t have any high end servers for very large corporate sites or anything like that.  If you just like the added options you get with VPS and dedicated hosting, but your site is small or medium sized, this is a great option.

Pros:

  • Low Prices
  • Lots of Options
  • Easy to Use Site

Cons:

  • No Shared Hosting
  • No High End Dedicated servers
