IX Web Hosting


IX Web Hosting features bargain pricing ($3.95/month) without skimping on features. Unlimited storage, bandwidth, and domains, along with one free domain registration, 1-click software installers, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee all add up to rival much pricier web hosting packages. What sets IX Web Hosting apart from other budget web hosts is that they offer 2 free dedicated IP addresses – a cost saver if you’re running SSL and an e-commerce site.
