Three Incredible Windows-Based Web Hosts

We already know: Most web host providers don’t like Windows, and will avoid it at any and all costs. Trust us, we’re well aware of it. That being said, there are plenty of good Windows based web hosts out there, and they have absolutely no problem finding business. Take that as you will, Unix die-hards. We’re just reporting.

With that in mind, here’s three of our favorite web hosts with a Windows face.

IX Web Hosting

We like these guys, and for one reason only: They’ve got killer technical support. We aren’t kidding. They also have pretty great, and extensive, plans with a business emphasis—they’re handy with all kinds of Ecommerce software—but what’s absolutely kick-ass about these guys is that each domain has its own dedicated account representative.

You heard us right.

Never again will you have to change hands between several different technicians to find a solution to a six-month problem. IX Web Hosting gives you one guru, and he’s yours.

HostGator

We’d be pretty surprised if you hadn’t already heard about HostGator. Not because they’re that special, but because they’ve ballooned into one of the largest and most recognizable web hosts around. This is largely due to the company’s rock-solid performance, support for ASP up to 4.0, and friendly tech support. Not to mention that their plans start as low as $4.76 a month. If that doesn’t sound like a bargain, we’d love to know who you’re getting service from!

1&1

If we had to describe these guys in a nutshell, we’d do it this way: 1&1 is bloody cool. Sure, they’re just another long-standing, Windows-based web host with a snarky face and some prestige. But what they’ve also got is dual hosting. This means that—God forbid—if your site goes down on one server, there’s another standing by that’s ready to roll, providing uninterrupted service.

Not only that, but some of the more expensive plans allow for browser-based tweaking, as well as more detailed control over both servers. It’s a very business-oriented package, and one that we’re quite fond of.

That’s all we’ve got for you today, but hopefully you aren’t such a stickler about Windows anymore. There are a lot of awesome companies offering innovative features out there, and if you’re willing to overlook the Microsoft aspect of them, a whole new world of opportunities arrises.
