Gabler intends to further expand IX Web Hosting’s position as a leader among providers of shared hosting, VPS, and cloud environments. With more than 8 years in the field, Gabler has become a well-known industry expert on hosting services and it is expected that he will deliver significant value to clients of IX Web Hosting.
Ben Gabler brings with him the extensive experience provided by his positions as Chief Operating Officer at HostGator.com, and as Chief Executive Officer at HostNine, LLC. He comes to IX Web Hosting from his position as the Shared Hosting Product Manager for the UK2group, where he was responsible for managing the core products and services for the business.

His experience fits perfectly with IX Web Hosting’s core focus on delivering highly secure and compliant cloud and managed hosting solutions to customers worldwide,” said Fathi Said, CEO and President of IX Web Hosting. “Ben is a visionary in the hosting field, and his thought leadership will be instrumental in creating new customer solutions, improving existing ones, and establishing IX Web Hosting as the true leader in the hosting market.”
Gabler comes at a time of stability for the 13-year-old company, which hasn’t had a major hiring change in over 12 months. IX Web Hosting, a provider known for their affordable and flexible shared hosting plans, has recently delved into advanced Cloud services and has sought to expand their team to support its development. They are expected to release several updates to their platform and services this year, which Gabler will oversee.
“Ben isn’t a candidate you can go out and look for. He’s the kind that, if available, you just snatch up. He’ll be adding something very special to our team and we’re very excited for what’s to come,” Fathi Said adds.
