Each plan includes free one-year domain registration, unlimited subdomains, unlimited FTP accounts, live chat customer support, WordPress hosting and SSL certificates. Without its introductory prices Arvixe is more expensive than other services; however, it offers a 45-day, money-back guarantee.

Pricing

Arvixe has a range of hosting packages at different price points. For our review, we focused on its business plans, which are hosted on a shared server.

There are two plans. The first, the BusinessClass package, starts at $25 per month, while the BusinessClassPro package starts at $38 per month with a two-year contract. If you pay monthly, packages are $33 and $45, respectively. With Arvixe, you receive a 45-day, money-back guarantee to decide if you like the service.  

Features

Here are some of the features that come with Arvixe Hosting's two business plans.

  • You receive a shared SSL certificate, which encrypts the data on your site. If you sell goods or services on your site, you need an SSL certificate.
  • In the event your website files are deleted or lost, Arvixe offers backup and restoration of your website. Other services we reviewed charge extra for this.
  • This hosting service integrates with numerous applications, including WordPress.
  • You get unlimited parked domains and subdomains on your account.
  • Both business plans offer $100 Google AdWords and Yahoo Bing vouchers.
  • The Business Class Pro plan offers unlimited email accounts. The Business Class plan offers six email accounts.
  • Arvixe has an easy-to-use cPanel that puts you in control of your website and emails. However, if you haven't used a web management platform before, the main dashboard for the cPanel can be overwhelming.  

Additional Considerations

Included with most of Arvixe's plan is unlimited bandwidth and disk space. However, like other services claiming to offer unlimited bandwidth and space, it may throttle your site if you use an excessive amount. Throttling slows your site down, slowing the speed with which your website loads. You can learn more information about Arvixe's bandwidth limitations in the company's terms of service. Some of the other features you'll find with Arvixe Hosting's plans include the following:

  • A 45-day, money-back guarantee so you have ample time to try out the service.
  • Multiple resources for those times when you have a question or run into a problem. You can reach representatives through live chat. There's also a knowledgebase and a discussion board.  

Drawbacks

Arvixe's business plans are more expensive than similar plans we reviewed from other services. Other web hosting companies have shared hosting packages that start at $10 per month. However, Arvixe has two packages in the  Personal Class category that are cheaper, which cost $7 and $10 per month, respectively.

Additionally, unless you purchase Arvixe's priority customer support, which costs an additional $20 per month, there isn't an option to call or email customer service representatives when you have a question or problem with the service. You are limited to searching through the knowledgebase to find an answer to your question. By comparison, other services we reviewed don't charge extra to call or email the customer support department.
