Arvixe vs. Lunarpages

0
82

Arvixe and Lunarpages both offer multiple types of web hosting. Lunarpages provides a greater range of hosting packages, but this comparison focuses on their basic hosting plans. And in this area, Arvixe’s shared hosting plan ranks much higher on the value scale.

Arvixe hosting comes with cPanel and includes unlimited storage and data transfer. We also really like how Arvixe provides you with a domain name for life (as long as you have no outstanding payments due on your account), while also including Cloudflare for CDN and Attracta for SEO. You’ll also get a longer than usual 60 day money back guarantee. And, once you become a customer, you can also benefit from their returning customer discounts.

By contrast, with Lunarpages, you will have to pay additional fees for some of the features we would like to see included for free. For example, Lunarpages charges an extra $2 a month if you want cPanel. Also, they charge $1.50 mo. for premium restore service. And, you’ll need to pay for search engine optimization services.

UPDATE: Because they now have an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, and other recent events, we would now recommend Lunarpages over Arvixe.
