Experience with 3ix Hosting

I have been with 3ix hosting for quiet a long time. It is was my first paid hosting and I am satisfied with the services offered. On web, you may have read lots of negative reviews of 3ix hosting but my views differs a bit. So, lets start with the review considering each feature and service offered. This is not a paid post but it is based on my personal experience.


On every hosting company’s webpage, there’s 99.99% uptime guarantee but the secret lies in 0.01% We know that no one is perfect; it means even the best hosting providers give downtime. I have suffered a long downtime of about 8 hours in mid of July but then there were no such long ones.

Rating : 7/10

Rates and cost

Of all hosting providers I browsed, I found 3ix to be cheapest one. They offer 1$/month hosting (what can be more cheap than that?) Other hosting plans with multi domain hosting and unlimited are also attractive and reasonable.

Rating : 9/10

cPanel Interference

This feature is most important since you need to work this feature only after buying. I have cpanel 11 (which I think is latest) Its integrated with Fantastico, ClickBe, Myphp and backup utility. I am interested in Fantastico installer and the installation scripts offered since I don’t have much knowledge about other things. Front page extensions are also available.

Rating : 8/10

Customer Care

3ix rocks in this service. They have a great customer care service with executives having good knowledge of troubleshooting and others. I never had to wait too long to talk with the person using Live chat service. Moreover, I always get a response with solution even when I open support ticket.

Rating : 9/10


3ix hosting is best suited for those who are new to this field and don’t want to spend much on hosting. It is a great solution for bloggers who want to have their own Hosting with single domain ownership. Admitting some minus points, 3ix is a good cheap hosting solution.

Overall rating 8/10

Wow! Such posts will surely improve your affiliate income… 3ix is a better option for beginners…

Nihar - September 23, 2008

I haven’t heard about this hosting before. Will check it…

Hussein - October 12, 2008

Disagree with you. 3ix hosting really sucks. 3ix hosting is my first ever paid hosting too. But my experience with them is such a damn shit. My sites are always down at least once a week. And their customer support is not reliable.

Hostgator is the best choice. Price doesn’t matter. What matter is the service and reliabality!

Nepharia - October 14, 2008

I don’t know what everyone else experienced, but I know that my site was down all the time. I would try to access it and it would be down. Then after about 5-10 minutes it would come online. It’s almost as if the server went to sleep and I had to wake it back up.

I have moved my site somewhere else and have had no problems since. I do like the CPanel interface they offer, but, like the website, it too was down all the time. I now use the site to store files and stuff, but nothing that’s mission critical.

I have never been able to find a phone number on their site for technical support and it takes up to several hours to get technical support for them via their ticketing system.

It’s unfortunate that they don’t offer hosting for mission critical sites and files.

Their whois information is:

White, Stephen
5715 Will Clayton
Humble, TX 77338
Domain Name: 3IX.COM
713-481-1400 fax: 713-481-1401

The domain 3ix.com shows to be hosted at IP address that comes back with a reverse DNS of ns1.host-care.com.

Host-care.com IP address comes back as Reverse DNS on that IP comes back as a Planet server in Dallas, Texas.

We once used and then quit using The Planet servers because their network had issues as well (which would stand to reason that 3ix has problems as well).

Do a little research. The best way to find a good host is by word of mouth.

When I bought, I didn’t knew much about Hosting terminology so, as a newbie I only thought of Money and I found this as a cheap one and I went with it.
I too have uptime monitor working on this servers and now, I am well known to their downtime but, I have to go with it since I have paid annual fee.

Also, thanks Nepharia for sharing your research and Hussein for your recommendation.

SATISH - October 19, 2008

Nice to see all these commentators speaking openly here. We never used 3ix.com, so no idea about it. But we had used Yahoo Small Business hosting, and it had plenty of downtimes, so shifted to Doreo host, since then there is no problem.

Rohit - October 20, 2008

Thanks Satish for informing that Yahoo small business too have problems and downtimes in spite of expensive package.

Este Hosting de 3ix.org, 3ix.com…es una pura mierda de hosting, mi pagina se cae cada 2 dias o 1 dia o solo 18 horas, he tenido perdidas de dinero visitantes y usuarios por causa del mas servicio de hospedaje de este hosting.

Mi consejo… no entren en este hosting
Guarden algo de dinero y busquen uno bueno
Mientras aloja tu web en uno gratuito.



entretienete - March 23, 2009

TODO LO CONTRARIO AMIGO MIO, mi Site no dura UP 2 dias seguidos, siempre cae ese hosting no es nada bueno, si no fuera por el soporte lo declararia estafa.

thimsen - December 8, 2009


please do not host your site at 3IX.org Their downtimes really suck. My site keeps coming and going all the time, every week, every day, every hour. And if you connect to the online so called “client service”, the are all liars. The standard answer is: We will refresh the services. And they always pretend everything is OK. They NEVER EVER really care for their customers. I have over 3 years “experience” with them and there is no difference between the first day and today. Be warned, it is crap. Real crap!!!!

    As a newbie, I went for cheap that’s the only reason I was with 3ix. I am no more with them, switched to Hostgator and recommend it.

Justyn - February 23, 2010

3ix is PATHETIC. Steer clear of this host. They had an apparent disk crash and restored my site to a snapshot that was MONTHS old. I lost all my data and 40+ hours of web development. Not only did they not have a recent backup, but there was a 24-hour outage for my sites. What on earth am I paying them for? Their support knows NADA about anything and is know for belligerent dealings.


Matteo - April 24, 2010

3ix it’s too bad hosting!

Rashad Gabaree - May 4, 2010

Kapanke - January 20, 2011

Good article!

Lionel - March 4, 2011

I am only posting this because at the moment I am in the process of updating my website. As per always when I check my website, surprise, surprise it is down. No prizes for guessing who I host my website with.

Anyone know of a good host that is reasonably cheap but where my site is up and running all of the time?

Robert - October 6, 2012

3ix.org is verry bad, i recommend you to avoid them. if you want to complecate your life go with them. my website is down more than 15 % of the time of the week. The server is load for no reason for more that 4-5 hours in certains days and their are not abble to solve the problems. i try to discuss with them more then 5 weeks but nothing was happens, they always told me that they will solve the problem but nothing is happens. avoid them, they will fucked your life.

yogesh - June 1, 2013
