Great support
Ma. Paulina Francesca Del Mundo,

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
Excellent for Co-Location Services

Let me start off by saying that this hosting company is not for most people. You don't want to use them for a normal blog or startup site. If you operate a very large site or a corporate webpage that you want to ensure has ex... More cellent uptime, however, this company can help. They aren't the cheapest option out tthere, but they have servers all around the world so you can easily serve all your customers. The support is first class and they are there to help you with anything you need. If you need the best co-location services, you will want to look at Peer1. Less

Arvixe Worst Ever.

To Whom It May Concern
We have been held as a hostage by Arvixe, Arvixe has blocked our access to all our company data, our emails, all the online tools we have been running on our websites for 300+ customers of ours.
As an o... More rganization we have the right to all the data stored and backed up with ARVIXE, if Arvixe team is so incompetent to solve such a grave issue first-hand, the least they can do is provide us with our data so that we don’t suffer these huge losses. More than 72 hours have passed just to receive a response and for the account to get activated. It’s simply unacceptable in today’s world for any IT company. Arvixe has ruined all our reputation that we have built in over 18 years in merely 3 days.
Our Account has been suspended due to a billing issue. Our account was created six years back when we had Mr. Soni as one of our partners and the account was created using his credit card (not on his name). Now when Mr. Soni has left our organization, Arvixe has automatically charged a six years old credit card which was not supposed to be charged for the invoice amount $229.42. Unaware of the charge Mr. Soni disputed this transaction and we weren’t informed about the same by Arvixe billing team, without reaching out to us and being completely inconsiderate about how severely it could affect our business ARVIXE TEAM suspended our account.
We have been asking for our account access for over 3 days so we can pay our invoices to take our account out of suspension but no one is there to take care of it. They just have a chat client, no phone or email address to address this issue directly. After chatting with their agents, we have always been asked for the same documentation over and over that we have submitted every time. After every submission we have been assured that someone will get back us to take the updated payment info but no one ever emailed or called to take the payment. This is happening 5 times in every 24 hours.
To take our account out of suspension, we have been requesting and cooperating with Arvixe chat support executives which are overseas, we have also provided all the required proofs, yet no action has been taken. We haven’t been able to login to our account. We have tried to reach out several times to the billing team to make the required payment but no response. We have never seen a company who doesn’t even have representatives to even accept the payment.
We have been facing this issue for over 3 days now – our sites, online customer tools, emails and all our data is inaccessible. We are suffering extensive Business Losses due to the unprofessionalism of ARVIXE TEAM. We provide services to more than 700 hotels and due to this suspension, we aren’t able to provide any tech support and are refunding all our customers due to no service. So far we have incurred $7800.00 in loss of revenue because of these documented refunds.
We've been waiting since 23rd February to present but still there is no response from Arvixe.
Attached are all the proofs that I have been continuously submitting to the ARVIXE SUPPORT TEAM.
Thanks

Rug pulled out from under feet
Mark Dornian,

I have been using the on-demand server offering for a number of years. They just announced in June that the service will be discontinued by the end of September. No compensation, no assistance, no reason, poor communications,... More no method of converting. I have been forced to go to another vendor and rebuild the server from scratch at great expense (4 days effort). Will never consider this organization again.
The whole point of using a cloud service is that they take care of the infrastructure and ensure its availability. By cancelling the service on short notice and without reason, it is like the service has crashed. The only consolation is that I got 3 months notice. It was a good thing I was not in the middle of a major project.
Turns out the new vendor was cheaper.
