Great support

I accidentally deleted my entire website (my fault), and my backups weren't working properly, but they managed to provide a backup and support within record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons... More : a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting. Less
Good service!

I requested consultation, they attempted to call me several times but I never answered(totally my fault) but they definitely did try to reach me. Time differences just always had the calls coming in in the middle of the night... More for me. I figured out what I had needed. Thank you Less

No Service only Lies
Glenn Gregory,

Over the last year, the service from Arvixe has been horrendous. There have been server outages that have lasted from hours to almost a week. Technical Support staff is incompetent. Additionally, they do not read the messages... More that one sends in chat. As for generating a trouble ticket, I generated a trouble ticket on Dec. 30, 2022 at 8:30am Central Time. They did not respond until January 3, 2023 at 9:05am stating there was no problem. Well. NO SH*T, Sherlock. The server reappeared sometime after 21:00 on Saturday, December 31, 2022. Even though the server shared057.arvixe.com died sometime on December 29. There are no reports that anything was wrong with the server. Plus, Arvixe raises their rates every year once you are stupid enough to purchase a service. Things were good in 2015, yet the service and support has rapidly declined since 2019. At one time, I hosted 10 domains on Arvixe. Because of poor service I moved them to another hosting service. Will move the last three this month. Less
