iPage is a Web Hosting Service for Webmasters, Web Publishers, Ecommerce and maintained by iPage.com

iPage Summary

iPage has been in the business of providing web hosting services since the 1990s.  The company went on a hiatus for years before getting re-launched in October 2009. The new iPage has gotten rave reviews from users in terms of being reliable in the provision of their services, particularly in web hosting.  Both savvy and rookies in the internet scene are welcomed by iPage.  For users who would prefer to have a simple website but are not skilled in programming, iPage has a Site Builder tool that is very easy to use and is available for free. Web pages and contact forms can be done easily just by choosing from numerous web designs.

iPage Features

iPage utilizes a user-friendly hosting control panel, the vDeck. This control panel is easily learned, simple and well-structured.  Users can run their domains and websites without difficulties, as well as create databases, email accounts and forwarders.  They can even install their favorite scripts!  Environmentally-conscious users will also be proud to know that the servers of iPage are 100 percent powered by wind-produced energy.  iPage has also established partnerships with market leaders such as Google and Carbonite. This entitles customers to get a lot of unique and special offers like a free 2GB Carbonite back-up option and a built-in edition of Google webmaster resources.

iPage Pricing

A great advantage of iPage is that it is readily affordable.  With unlimited storage and data transfer, unlimited add-on domain names, and a domain that is forever free, all these are available at a $3.50 monthly fee.  That rate is available the whole year, without date restrictions.

Their Essential Hosting package of iPage already has all the necessary features like unlimited space and bandwidth, business email accounts and databases for that price.  Moreover, $450 worth of free extras is also available, making the entire packing almost virtually free.  A number of add-ons to the hosting package are available for a price, but very much worth it. Those that come highly recommended are the Automate Site Backup, a security add-on and a Directory Listing service.

iPage Reliability

iPage has established itself as one of the more reliable web hosting providing, ensuring 99.9 percent uptime.  Any website aiming to have its product or service readily available to anyone, anywhere, anytime would certainly benefit from this assurance.  Having a website that is down a lot of times discourages repeat website visitors, not to mention a decrease in business because a lot of web customers would rather just look for services and products in another site than wait for a site that is always offline to go back live.  Moreover, iPage has a reliable support team that can be reached anytime by phone, sending an email or using live chat.

iPage Review

The iPage hosting package is Linux-powered and comes bundled with unlimited space and bandwidths.  This allows the firm’s users to make as many emails and databases they would like, for the discounted price of $3.50 every month.  If a user still doesn’t have a domain, iPage can get one in his or her behalf for free.  Other perks include $450 worth of extra freebies, including marketing credits, a listing in the Yellow pages and a Ratepoint newsletter manager, among others. Aside from hosting, iPage also provides tools that enable new website owners to publish their website with just a click of a button.

If you're knowledgeable about taking care of your hosting administration, then iPage is a decent host. They offer several levels of service with excellent features at each level. Pricing is very competitive so that's a plus, too. However, their service is spotty so if you have to call or email for a support issue, you'll often be disappointed. Their support reps are very unevenly trained, apparently, as you'll get different answers every time you call and the reps often have no idea how to take care of a problem. Don't sign up for anything extra, especially their SEO package. It's a complete waste of money and it's very difficult to stop the service.
