“Hope they get back on track”
Reviewed

When I first signed up with Arvixe, they were on top of their game. There were hardly any issues, it was very reliable and support was efficient if anything came up.

Nowadays it is the complete opposite. Issues are nothing new, you encounter one every day or two. Support might as well be non-existent. I really hope they get back on Show more

“Good hosting”
Reviewed

I'm not using Arvixe at the moment, because I changed my job and work for a different company now. But we had Arvixe with my previous employer and we rarely had any hosting-related problems.

They had good support, whenever we contacted them. The websites were mostly online, there were too little offline periods. We suffered a hacker attack once, but everything Show more

“Used it because it was cheap”
Reviewed

I used Arvixe for almost 6 years and only stayed with them because they were the cheapest webhost out there, only one I could afford. It was not a pleasant experience, often had multiple issues at a time. Support was pretty awful, never helped with anything. I recently moved away from Arvixe and I couldn't be happier!

“Good until you get any kind of error”
Reviewed

Arvixe gives limitless hosting at very good rates but that doesn't means it comes without a price, once you are stuck with any kind of issue you can forget about prompt resolution or any such thing, they will just escalate and escalate and escalate your issue. Some of my tickets took at least 3 weeks to resolve, that is when Show more

“Near complete lack of support, a part of EIG (which should be avoided at all costs) and HORRIBLE down time.”
Reviewed

They essentially have NO support at all. They do not have a phone number to call for support, you have to submit tickets through online chat with people that will ALWAYS tell you that the problem you are having is "on your end" or "your fault".

When services work, they work the same as any other company that offers the same Show more

“Wouldn't use them again”
Reviewed

I'm never using Arvixe again! They have the worst 'support' out of all the companies I've hosted with. They haven't solved any issue, and I've had quite a few this month. I even have unresolved tickets dating back to september. The latest one is from a week ago, hasn't even been replied to. Really bad service at the moment, as Show more

“Slow and unhelpful support”
Reviewed

I was mainly happy with Arvixe until my site got hacked a month ago. The support wasn't much of a help, they replied pretty slowly to my tickets and the issue still hasn't been resolved. I'm considering moving if it's not fixed very soon, as it froze my business during this time.

“Good and cheap”
Reviewed

I've had renewal issues last year, when I already paid but the service wasn't renewed and active yet. Support was helpful and fixed it quick, so it wasn't too big of a problem. Apart from that, I've been mostly satisfied with Arvixe's hosting service. Support is good, they reply and fix things in a timely manner. Uptime has been good Show more

“Constant email issues”
Reviewed

I had a reseller hosting package from Arvixe for a few sites. Everything was working great up until a few months ago. I started having email issues, sometimes lasting days at a time. Contacting support was not much of a help. First, I had to wait for hours to get in touch, then had to wait for a reply for Show more

“Had to move away because of the lack of support”
Reviewed

While they were good when I first signed up 4 years ago, Arvixe just doesn't provide the same service anymore. They are still cheap, but it doesn't pay off if your websites are offline all the time, or email won't work! Support has gotten much worse to a point it's basically non-existent and tickets sit unresolved for weeks at a Show more
