WebHostingPad vs. IX Web Hosting

What is it that puts a web hosting company at the top of their industry? Is it price? Technical specs? Customer support? Or maybe a combination of each? Regardless of why they are part of an elite group, it is the customers that place them there.

In the short time they have offered web hosting they have gained over 74,000 customers and over 470,000 websites on their books.

WebHostingPad also has been in business for about 5 years, starting with a group of very successful industry professionals.

With two worthy companies vying for your business, how do you choose which one? We do the work for you in our review and comparison, and provide you with a recommendation. Read on.

IX Web Hosting offers three plans: the Expert Plan for $3.95/mo; the Business Plus Plan for $7.95, and the Unlimited Pro Plan also for $7.95 (down from a regular $12.95).

Both companies treat their customers right with extra products and services. WebHostingPad offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee and 30 day money back guarantee. They also offer free domain registration and optional professional web design.

IX Web Hosting offers Ecommerce SSL certificates, professional web design, merchant account set up, and a paid website “transfer” service for existing clients.

All plans get support for popular scripting languages, multi-media, and ecommerce solutions.

WebHostingPad offers their clients the use of cPanel control panel software which is the best in the industry. IX Web Hosting provides the option for Windows platform support including MS SQL, ODBS/DSN, Cold Fusion, and ASP.NET with their top two plans.

Customer Service

Both companies provide outstanding 24 hour customer support through chat, phone, or help desk. WebHostingPad also provides support via Skype as well. Both provide a great online support center, but IX has a help center that is much easier to navigate, and contains more articles and tutorials.


Both companies are worthy of your business. While WebHostingPad offers the best price, IX Web Hosting offers plans that are still ultra-affordable, and has a superior customer service online option. With the added support for Windows platform for no additional cost, IX Web Hosting takes our recommendation.
