was founded in 2004 and is now 13 years in business.
x10hosting.com contains very nice layout, and whole website is easy to navigate... except signup form. After clicking registration link we were asked to choose between available packages - without ads, and with forced ads (ads-sponsored package includes more space and bandwidth). Trying to register for ads-free package didn't work - we were redirected to same page again and again. But after choosing package with ads, registration form was working just perfect.
As soon as required fields were filled out, we got confirmation email and cPanel account was created within next few minutes. After doing some more tests we found x10hosting.com user area is hard to understand (while main website should be easy to navigate even for newbies), but their service is good enough - no major slowdowns or timeouts. Another thing we like about x10hosting.com - if standard PHP configuration on server is not suitable for you, you may ask their team to upgrade PHP (good reason to do so will be required, of course).
Basically, we have no more complaints about x10hosting.com, and it's really worth to consider.
And this is a copy of their activation email:

Review of x10hosting.com by ut3mods on 2012/01/27 at 18:31Look for another host because this one will only screw you over. My account was closed for supposedly breaking the Terms of Service, which I didn't. What happened was that my account was generating more traffic then usual, and even though each account has it's own limits for bandwidth and space, and I had previously payed to have those limits increased. They decided to just suspended it with no warning. After filing a support ticket it ended with "Ryan Schmidt - Level 2 Support" claiming that they have no records of me paying, after proving with a copy of the receipt that I had payed the ticket was closed with no further reply.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Review of x10hosting.com by tech on 2011/09/19 at 04:30they fucking people ,their is deadbeef eroor from 1 week and they are not doing anything,my website ultimatearticles.x10.mx dont show any theme and when i click on any link they show websites does not exist,the support requests for lotus server is disable,
Review of x10hosting.com by Henk on 2011/08/27 at 12:19I resently switched to this host and i am supriced with the functions they allow.
I was able to run all scripts without any issues where other servers whould cause trouble. Also a .htaccess was no problem if the rewrite rule has been setup properly. Remote MX is a must for me to. phpMyadmin was nice and up to date.
Performance : This is something that can really depend on what you are doing. I noticed how slow the site can get at some points but i have a very simply solution around this issue. Register a domain (can be .tk) and put Cloudflare.com in between wich functions as a cache server. By doing this it means that there is alot less load on your site and your visitors will have a much quicker response then the original servers give you.
Overal rating : Good
Alot of options
Up to date software like php , phpmyadmin and mysql
Can be slow during peak hours.
Forum login required every month.
Review of x10hosting.com by ace_case on 2011/08/10 at 20:19They are a great host. The reasons for the down time are usually an upgrade to the server. They are very quick with their support.
1. Highly server Downtime.... - Lazy ass... ~~They are probably upgrading your server.
2. You get suspended for Nothing... ~~You must Visit the forums every 31 days. You don't even have to post.
3. Only 2 Mysql database (Ofc, you can make table_Prefixes, but...) ~~I don't see why you would need any more?
4. Bad Support.. ~~There is an IRC if you want you question answered quickly.
5. Slow Servers (Takes a year too load... FUNNY!!!)...~~They have since preformed upgrades to their servers
6. Slow servers - If you are doing a action, like domain change, it takes a year!.~~They have upgraded their servers.
7. Bad T.O.S....~~I don't see anything wrong with it. Here you can't even have chat scripts or gaming scripts.
8. Slow FTP....~~I don't see how is slow?
9. Shitty space: What is the meaning of "Unlimited" bandwith, when you can't use it...?~~Bandwidth has nothing to do with space. If you are using over 50% of the available space then there is a problem.
Review of x10hosting.com by Joshua on 2011/06/30 at 19:50There support is incredible. And for being free, they have great uptime.
Review of x10hosting.com by Bob on 2011/05/27 at 16:27Someone needs to get this "service" off the web.
