Arvixe is hosting my ecommerce.
Like everyone, I wasn't very happy with performances.
I upgraded to a BusinessPlan and it seems to run slower.
Support is useless.
Is anyone in the community managed to have decent performances with Arvixe ?
Any other experience with hosting providers more professional/reliable?
I have had a pretty good experience with Arvixe... True they are not the fastest at support but then they do offer very good prices. I had some trouble at first because the server I was on did not have the app pool set to 64 bits. As soon as they changed that, everything started working fine. I am able to run nopcommerce on a personal plan and it loads fast and runs great. It could be that the servers that I am on our not full yet, but I would recommend contacting [email protected]
to double check to see if he can solve your problem.
Sometimes a website running slow can be due to other things besides the host. For example, on another hosting company I had a plan with it it was really fast but then all of a sudden started going very very slow. It was taking about 40 seconds to load a page. I found that when I disabled the most of the activity types ( I had them all enabled), truncated files, deleted guest accounts, and abandoned shopping carts, it solved the problem and things started running fast again. A lot of times it is the host, but sometimes it is due to other problems.
Another host you might want to consider is Softsys hosting
. I ran a nopcommerce website with them for some time. They have a very fast and helpful support. They are a little more expensive than Arvixe, but if you are looking for faster support then you might want to try them out.
