    Hi all, just a question, did somebody used ixwebhosting.com for BH?
    Is it BH-friendly?
    The reason is ... I saw their offer like 8$/mo (or 12$/mo. - 3 mo. billing) everything unlimited + 15 dedicated IP ... Sounds like a good one :)

    BTW, I have access to an account there bought 1 year ago, got only 2 dedicated :( and I can tell that I didn`t really like their panel, they have an EasyApp Collection, but the WP there is the 2.5 version. Pretty lame...

    They are a outdated company in terms of technology. I wouldn't use them.

    I won't really recommend them to anyone. The 3-year pre pay is overkill. And also no CPanel.

    I have an account there. No cpanel but I like the ips. Really worthwhile in that. I use individual ips on many of my domains. You can pay on yearly basis and it's still worthwhile. Don't know about BH but for WH I think it's OK. But no fantastico for WP and yes easy apps only gives 2.5.

    I just signed up with them to get the 15 dedicated ips. I`m pulling my hair out trying to migrate my wp builds to their site.

    Their easyapps installer will only install wordpress to a subfolder mysite.com/wordpress

    What good is that? Does anyone run wp on a subfolder?

    So now I`m trying to use backupbuddy to migrate and i`m having trouble gettig that working. I am determined to stick with it as dedicated ips are important for s.e.o but I wish to christ they had cpanel or webpanel this hshpere crap sux

    Using them couple months and weekly downtimes. Custom control panel and everything. Hard to backup many sites.
    If you are not much demanding its ok

    In the sudfolder, can you not just put / to put it in the root directory?
    If that doesn't work its a bit of an odd setup!

    Not that I know of.. they are having a special right now though. One year of unlimited hosting with 15 dedicated ip`s and three freee domains for $108.00 I posted a review about them already. 2 weeks in and I am happy..mostly..enough to recommend it anyway.

    Ix isn't bad but they drop about half my sites every other week. I usually have to call to alert them. They have gotten much better sine they've moved to Ohio. If your runing word press it will be slow with any decent traffic. I was able to run a proxy on there for a few months pulling in massive traffic before they asked me to stop.

    If you slowly assign your domains to those 15 I.P.'s you may find that they are on separate C class I.P's. Useful if you ask me....

    I do not, I have a hosting account there for sites I don't really care too much about. I use their mysql database for other wordpress sites I host on other servers, but I'm slowing moving my site's away from them. This past week (since i posted) they have been droping my sites quite a bit.
