ix Webhosting

IX Web Hosting been providing first-class web hosting services since 1999. Unlike a lot of web hosting providers, they run their own data center. By running their own data center, you're more likely to receive good service, and there are fewer places to assign blame when things go wrong.

They offer shared hosting plans at really low prices on either Windows or Linux servers. One would choose Windows if you needed to host ASP pages (ASP is a web templating technology from Microsoft that's similar to PHP).

They specialize in a simple-to-build-your-website experience. The plans include a point and click web building tool they call Site Builder, and they have a staff available to provide web design services. Their plans include the Miva shopping cart engine.

They do offer "developer" hosting that's the typical do-it-yourself shared hosting account. But clearly their focus is on the user friendly help, design services, etc.
