Arvixe is a privately held hosting company located in San Luis Obispo, CA with more than 10 years under its belt. Founded in 2003 by Arvand Sabetian, this hosting provider made the Inc. 500 list as one of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies in both 2011 and 2012.
Before we dig into Arvixe's hosting plans, I thought it'd be interesting to take a closer look on Arvand Sabetian and how things work in the company.
Arvand Sabetian landed Inc. 30 under 30 for two consecutive years in 2002 and 2003. He first started his Arvixe after his junior year of high school. According to an article on Inc, Sabetian didn’t want to give up his company when he started college; so what so he convinced a few friends to help him keep it running while they got their degrees. In 2008, the young entrepreneur was set to graduate with a degree in civil engineering and in the same time, his company Arvixe was bringing in about $150,000 profit annually. He decided to give Arvixe one more year… and, the rest is history.
Arvixe grew from a one-man operations into a company making multi-millions today. What's most interesting about Arvixe to me is that although the company has over 80 employees, it does not have a HQ office. The following video tells more about how Sabetian works with his team.
The organization offers numerous classes of hosting services, including personal, business, VPS, dedicated, and reseller hosting options.

Personal class hosting focuses on individuals looking for a cheap web hosting option. There are two options: standard and pro which ring in at $4 or $7 per month; both offer unlimited disk space and data transfers, servers located in the United States or Europe, and a free domain name. Of course, SSL certificates, dedicated IPs, and the enhanced features come with an additional cost. Business class services, also divided into standard and Pro options, start at $22 or $35 per month, respectively, and include the same unlimited features as the Personal class, as well as a dedicated IP address and SSL certificate.
VPS standard hosting starts at $40 per month and Pro at $70 per month and includes limited (50 GB or 100 GB), unlimited monthly data transfers, a free domain, free SSL certificates, and two IP addresses. Dedicated servers come with fully (100 percent) managed servers, nightly security updates, 24/7 dedicated support, free SSL certificates and domain names, and more. Dedicated class pricing starts at $105 per month for single processor servers or $329 per month for multi processor servers.
I have got a shared hosting account at Arvixe in March 2014 and had been tracking on the hosting uptime for some time.
In summary, Arvixe hosting had been doing okay so far. The following image indicates the uptime score for the past 30 days. Note that the test site was not properly that the slightly low uptime record is due to some error with my tracking. The correct uptime score should be around 99.9% if my error is neglected.
Arvixe offers a slew of hosting options, each with option subsets an addons.
Who is Arvixe?
Arvixe is a US-based web hosting company that has been in the business for over a decade now.
Is Arvixe Hosting still in business?
Yes, Arvixe is still up and running, offering users a wide range of web hosting options.
What are some good Arvixe Hosting alternatives?
My takeaway is that Arvixe is an okay host for small-to-middle sized websites; but likely NOT the best pick for businesses or large websites. There is quite a history of consumer complaints about the server reliability, although looking at the company’s fast growth, we do question whether those complaints are a result of rushed servers.
