What is X9 Internet?


About Us

X9 Internet was founded in the UK in 1998. We saw demand for dependable and reliable yet low cost web hosting service and developed the budget hosting model. This was during a time when a web hosting account was not cheap. Some firms were charging nearly £200 per year and resources were not plentyful either, at best you got around 50 Mb of disk space with 500 Mb of traffic at the time.

Our Mini Virtual Server came with lots of resources, and at only £9 per year, it was the cheapest fully featured production status shared hosting package on the market at the time.

How did we do it? Working with Designer Servers, the first UK virtual vps product was created, way ahead of its time, using a clever software based solution. This enabled us to commit ourself to much lower fixed costs which were scaleable as our business grew, without the burden of running a costly data center. We have since made this model available to those who wish to venture into the web hosting business and also for website designers.

I came across this review site and saw it has only two one star reviews, probably aimed at discrediting X9 due to some disagreement, maybe they were sending out spam and were disabled. However I feel strongly that I need to set the record straight. X9 is our hosting provider, since 1998, first with the domain oveanwarrior2.com and then in 2005 when we changed the boat to oceanwarrior3.com. I cannot remember any downtime and their service has been always helpful. When we need something, we send an email and they always call us on our phone. Top notch, well done X9.

Sometimes you have an experience with a company that is just so bad and so surreal, and this happened to me with x9 Internet hosting. Maybe they just had a bad day, or maybe they're always like this; I don’t know. What I do know is that their sign up procedure is very lax, and allowed me to make a payment without providing details *they said* were a requirement of their terms and conditions. I thought it was a fairly easy process; click a few buttons and click ‘pay now’ with PayPal. Yet they processed an order without what they considered essential parts of the order.

After making the payment via PayPal through their site nothing happened; no confirmation from them, order number, receipt or anything. It was only through the PayPal receipt that I knew the money had been paid. After searching their site for a contact form or email address I did contact them, after which I felt that the procedures they had in place were not as secure as they should be and I was uncomfortable with the situation, security wise. I probably should have contacted them through PayPal but I have had so few problems with PayPal that the thought never entered my head.

I informed them that I wanted a refund. They agreed on a refund but specifically asked me why and I told them I had security concerns with their procedures and the age of the software or web site scripts they were using, whereupon they tried to say that as they had my money and I did not have their service I was a possible scammer. They then told me that the holes in their sign up procedure which allowed it to happen were somehow my fault. I must say it's the first time I have been blamed for being a customer. After which it was a case of the matter was closed and I shouldn't email them again otherwise they will charge me an administration fee.

Naturally the refund did not appear in my PayPal account. Wary of contacting them direct lest they invoke the ‘fee’ I contacted PayPal to resolve the issue of the refund.

As I said at the beginning, surreal.

This is not a serious hosting company. The customer service is non existent. I have paid for Google Adword clicks when my hosting wasn't working. I didn't find out for 4 weeks. Then when I tried to contact X9 Internet - no reply. I would not recommend them. Stay away. You have been warned!
