With experience in hosting from 2001 and a choice of datacenters for maximum efficiency and speed, iPage has established a good name in web hosting generally, with minimal poor reviews and a loyal customer base. BBB accredited, employee-owned and operated, this outfit is seen as a higher-quality and higher-priced provider for business needs. So what do the iPage hosting reviews say?
iPage, based in California and Virginia and employee-owned, offer Windows, Mac and LINUX hosting. They have based their reputation on their top of the range Dell servers and high quality hardware, using three independent internet providers for maximum connection speed and minimal downtime. Their web hosting packages include VPS hosting, shared hosting and dedicated servers, with the option of a web designing service for special requirements, and would seem to have something for everyone.
Their network is checked all the time, not only for faults so they can respond immediately to any problems, but for improvement potentials. For those looking for a safe and familiar environment to operate their websites, iPage’s Windows hosting seems to have all the boxes checked. They offer unlimited bandwidth and disc space, latest cPanel control panel and FTP access with 2,000 FTP accounts. They provide Windows-compatible scripts and support for applications for forms, live chat, photo galleries and weblogs, and they pride themselves on their tech support, which is available all-day, year-round and 100% in-house by email, ticket, toll free telephone or live chat. Other support resources include their FAQs, knowledgebase, video tutorials and forums, and reviews describe their support as friendly, fast and knowledgeable.
The two datacenters on opposite coasts are certainly a selling point, as email and websites for business customers within the maximum speed zones for either can run up to six times faster. Customers across the globe can choose the optimum center for their location.
Criticisms from users are mainly about price: iPage are not the cheapest show in town. Yet apart from this it is difficult to find adverse comments, and iPage averages only one hate-page per 300,000 pages. Most users seem happy with the reliability and are apparently prepared to pay a higher price for better service.
With some 90% of desktops and of the market share of client operating systems for internet usage being Windows, iPage are wise to offer Windows compatibility. As with all their resources, it seems to be better quality at a higher price, but customers familiar with iPage are ready to pay.
