Summary

Arvixe is by all means considered a powerhouse VPS provider. With their range of features, added security, all inclusive pricing and complete reliability, they make for a great VPS hosting solution. While they could be misconstrued as a “little league” player, this would be considered a colossal mistake for anyone to pass this kind of judgment on them before testing them out. With their 60 day money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Features

(5.0/5.0)

We urge our readers to compare all of the top VPS web hosting services and what is on offer for each one. Arvixe is, without a doubt, the most upfront and open VPS service. Countless VPS providers will try and bait customers with a low price point, yet once they sign up, they end up paying more for add on features than they thought they would. This is not the case with Arvixe as they are an all-inclusive service. Moreover, they are one of the only services to provide truly unlimited bandwidth across all four of their plans. We would also like to note that this is not the only feature that is given at an unlimited range. Private name servers, hosting accounts, domain aliases, subdomains, FTP accounts, mail boxes, auto responders, forwarders, Mailman mailing lists, MySQL 5 databases, PostgreSQL Databases – all unlimited if you sign up for any one of Arvixe’s plans. That said, here is a breakdown of some of the main features you can expect to receive with Arvixe VPS:

Just about every feature imaginable is offered through an Arvixe VPS plan free of charge. The only features you may need to pay for is more RAM ($20/month per GB), additional dedicated IP addresses ($2/month per IP address) or SSD drives ($10/month per drive). We would also like to note that all plans are Windows, Mac and Linux friendly, and their VPS service comes with a full 60 day money back guarantee.

Reliability

(5.0/5.0)

Arvixe offers one of the most reliable services on the market. It is true that like many other top web hosting services, Arvixe guarantees 99.9% uptime. However, as we have pointed out through dozens of other web hosting reviews, a guarantee does not necessarily translate into quality uptime. Not only is Arvixe true to their word regarding uptime, but their speed and performance are second to none. This is because all data is stored on 15K RPM SCSI drives in RAID 10 servers. They also employ the use of the latest Intel Xeon E5620 processors. However, they have gone above and beyond by offering their VPS customers an SSD options in addition to the above mentioned reliability standard. Further, Arvixe offers fully redundant data center power (located in 3 different locations across the U.S.). Arvixe’s servers are given power via an uninterrupted power supply which further assures complete uptime. In all, you will be hard pressed to find better reliability.

Support

(4.0/5.0)

For as much as Arvixe’s features are talked about, it is their customer support that really stands out. A smaller company? It hardly feels like it. Arvixe offers every support channel imaginable. Live chat, phone (toll free) and e-mail – all 24/7. There is a useful knowledgebase, numerous tutorials, a getting started section, pre sales questions, billing, an up to date blog, a discussion board – all at your disposal. Still want more? You can reach Arvixe via all major social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn). Like us, you will be surprised at how efficient they are. We would also like to note that their service representatives are just like BlueHost’s and MyHosting – friendly, efficient and useful.
