The answer for this question is easy: The answer is: “Yes” and “No”. Now that you are confused, let me explain this in a little more detail.
IX Hosting claims that with their offer of “FREE” unlimited domains this actually means the ability for you to host unlimited domains without any extra charges or fees on your IX Web Hosting account. This offer does not include the actual domain registration fee which is around $10 depending on where you register it these. Many people seem to get confused when they hear about unlimited domain web hosting and I agree – the verbage is often misleading.
IX Hosting however offers unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth with their accounts – as long as your website stays below certain memory and CPU thresholds. A website with a large database will go past those thresholds easily, while any normal website should not have any problems. What exactly are those thresholds? It depends. Just think about it more from a logical perspective – if your website is heavy in regards to images, videos, and MySQL (large discussion forums come to mind), then you probably need a VPS or a dedicated server anyway – shared hosting would not provide your visitors with a good experience. However, if you are serving only content to 1,000 – 2,000 visitors per day – you should be fine.
I like IX Hosting because most customers can really take advantage of their cheap prices as their websites will usually fall well within the category of a “normal website”. Power users should stay away from IX web hosting and consider a cheap dedicated server or a cheap virtual private server (VPS) right from the start.
