ipage web hosting reviews

The company is probably one of the most popular hosting providers, thanks to its affordable Essential Plan, that includes all the necessary features that a startup website needs. iPage has been founded in 1998, but the current business model has been implemented only in 2007. The company claims that their platform host over one million client’s website from all over the world, in their 2,400 square feet datacenter which is located in Boston, MA, USA. The great infrastructure is backed with 24/7 phone support, email support and live chat as well. The company is really confident in the quality of the service they provide, this is why iPage is offering an Anytime Money-back guarantee.

In the next I will be focusing on reviewing and sharing my thoughts about iPage’s shared hosting plan, which is known as the Essential Plan.

Features & Value

ipage hosting features As I mentioned before, the Essential Plan includes all the features that a new or already existing website needs, but not only. Here are some of the main features: unlimited web space and data transfer, host as many domains and emails you want on the same account, free domain name registration or domain transfer, free marketing credits to help with website promotion, site building tool, and a lot more. Regularly the price starts at $8.99/month however if you sing up now, you will get a discounted $1.68/month deal

Reliability & Performance

The two datacenters where the company is hosting its client’s websites are monitored 24/7 and are providing a high security environment for the clustered servers. This way the company ensures that best uptime for their customers. iPage offers Anytime Money-Back Guarantee, that means if you are not satisfied in any way with their service, you can get a refund for the remaining contracted period. Please keep in mind that this money-back is applied only for web hosting and not for the domains you purchase.

With my test sites that are hosted at iPage, during the four years of hosting, I have never experienced any performance or up-time related issue.

User Friendliness

Ipage uses the vDeck control panel that allows its users to manage their website and billing related cases from the same account. In my opinion this is a very good way to get things done fast and easy. The control panel allows you to add-on domains, create email accounts, install your favorite script (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal), upload files, images in minutes, even if you are not a technical person at all.

The following video is a great example on how easy is to create a website at iPage with the site-builder:

Help & Support

I know how important is the assistance in case of emergency, but don’t worry, the company is there to help you 24/7. You can choose from various support options that is more convenient for you: support by phone, by live chat and via email ticketing system. For those who like more to learn and do things themselves, the Knowledgebase is a goldmine. This database is a collection of articles and video tutorials that will help you use the control panel, learn how to use the site builder and many other development and scripting related things. 

Conclusion

Based on my hosting experience with iPage I will recommend this company to all those who need a quick and easy startup with their website and don’t want to spend a fortune for hosting. iPage is perfect for small business websites and new webmasters who just want to start in the online world. For advanced users and developers I would recommend BlueHost, they have higher price but offers more features for developers.

For a long time I wanted to build a website for my business, but never had the time to think on what I want and did not know who to hire to develop a site for me. My friend recommend me this hosting company. It was very impressive to see that he have created a beautiful website for his company by himself using the website builder at ipage. I thought I will give it a shot, so I signed up. It was the best decision! No need to hire a web design company or bug somebody to change content on my website, I do it myself all the time. It is much fun!

I’m a customer for more than two years and I’m happy with the service and support. What I really like about this company is the site builder tool, it is so simple to use, no need to hire a web designer, can do everything myself: choose a design from the hundreds of templates, edit the template as I need it, create the pages I want, upload images and text, without a single line of code writing. This is very simple and effective, have already created couple of websites this way.
I’m using other hosting providers as well, but iPage is my favorite, will recommend it!

Overall is a reliable company and they are trying their best to keep up with the high volume of customers. It is pretty obvious that no other company can compete with their initial prices, so I guess they have lots of new customers. Probably this is why to communication with the live chat support was a bit slower. Finally they helped me, and I'm thankful for that, but when you are in rush and need help right away, it is annoying to wait for the live chat.
