Review Features

Same like other web hosting, iPage offers unlimited email account, ftp account unlimited disk space, bandwidth, etc. It provides most of the NEEDED features for most web developers need. If we do side by side comparison, the features can compete with other popular webhosting such as BlueHost, Hostagor. Once major different is iPage is using vDeck control panel. And if you are signing up iPage hosting, you will find that there are some optional features which is to enhance your website usage such as WordPress Essential package, Advanced Site Protection and Performance Accelerator, Site Optimization and submission, Automated Site daily backup, Directory Listing, go Mobile template builder. Of course there are additional charges.

Performance Review

iPage data centers are strategically located on AT&T’s, Global Crossing and Cable & Wireless’ OC48 / OC192 Global IP backbones. These locations, together with the extensive public / private peering arrangements, are designed to maximize your Internet reach and bandwidth capacity and to optimize performance. To ensure your data’s security, our facilities are staffed 24 hours a day with on-site guards and are equipped with both interior and exterior closed-circuit television. The website performance is depends on:

  1. where is the datacenter and who is your main target audience?
  2. The size of the contents especially graphic images.
  3. Type of Internet Service Provider that visitor is using.

Control Panel

ipage-control-panel-vdeck
iPage is using vDeck which is another popular control panel other than cPanel. Lots people said that vDeck is easier and user friendly. But I personally think that both cPanel and vDeck are almost same, They are just like Google Chrome and Firefox . However, cPanel has slightly more features than vDeck such as  RV Skins, Fantastico and CSF firewall.


Customer Support

ipage-livechat
If you look at iPage live chat window , you will find it a bit different than other web hosting. What is the difference? First, there is something doesn’t seems right. It is asking for the answer of the user’s security question?? How many of you remember the security question? Main point is most of the user are seeking for advice instead of logging in, why we need to answer it? Very obvious, the customer supports are from one group of people. They do not split the question to any department, means that all of them are capable to support any question. In the business standpoint, this is a better management system where the team resource is fully utilized and the problem can be effectively managed.


Price

Subscribe 12 months iPage is at around $20
Subscribe 24 months is at around $40.
iPage price is superb low compare to other hosting company. By analyzing the features, service and the price, It is definitely a very very good deal. As long as you are parking those non trading, non magazine website which incur lots of bandwidth and CPU processing

This is the most cost effective web hosting for common usage. Worth a try. If you really not satisfy or it does not meet your expectation, just change the hosting and ask for refund within 30 days. If you are the beginner, you should know that building a website until you see the traffic, it takes at least 1 year. Therefore, this should be your good start.
