Buying and maintaining your own servers sucks. You have to deal with vendors and their sales guys, not to mention worry about upgrades, crashes, constant equipment upgrades - and IT people to run it for you.
Is your business in a growth spurt? Does your site experience traffic spikes? Do you want to setup a specific operating system or control panel? Just let Cloud by IX know, and it'll build itself around what you want to accomplish.
However you want! You can choose from Incremental Billing, which is like charging items to a credit card and paying it off when you hit your limit, deposit billing, where you deposit a sum of money, and draw from it until it's depleted.
We'll miss you, but you can cancel at any time by selecting the "cancellation" option in the billing
Absolutely not! We only charge for the resources you actually use, like storage, CPU / RAM, additional IP addresses, and software packages.
No, you will not be charged for any hardware or bandwidth resources on a stopped server. We only bill you for the stuff that continues to be used when a server is stopped, like storage, software, and additional IP ranges.
Basically, if you only need a server for three hours you create it, use it for that amount of time, destroy the server, and you will only be billed for the hours that the server was running. Neat!
We can increase our resources as needed, instantaneously. Our customers also have access to the most current version of their products immediately.
Our old web hosting company didn't have back-up capabilities and they lost all of our data. With the Cloud, we don't have to worry about hardware failures, which is great.
