Customers' reviews about IX Web Hosting web hosting services

IX we hosting is likely to be a decent value for most people. However, if you need to build a Joomla site, then look elsewhere. I tried auto installing joomla 1.5.2, and found that it does not come installed with sample data. Their tech staff confirmed this. When attempted to manually upload joomla 1.5.8., I found that their PHP server was incompatible. I made a half heated attempt to alter the htaccess file, & rename it as per instructions, but that also failed. Perhaps if I persisted for a few more days I could get my Joomla working, but I lack the patience for this, and am now searching for a new host. Bottom line, IX is NOT set up for Joomla. At least not yet.
