Ipage has been around since 1998 and seem to power over 11 million sites and counting. Just like blue host and Hostgator its part of the endurance international group ( EIG) – a massive internet service provider
EIG products are not at the top of my list when i have to recommend hosting providers as their performance isn’t always the best and they tend to miss important features
However, ipage affordable prices caught my eye, so i decided to test them and write this ipage review in my blog.
Lets check out what ipage has to offer
Ipage is a quality hosting provider that offers excellent value for money . we recommend it for smaller websites wanting to get started with shared or vps hosting
Ipage placed n the middle of the ranking in our extensive web hosting research . it has flexible prices and solid support. but it underperformed it speed and reliability . here’s a quick summary of how ipage scored in the most important categories of our research
In this review, we will walk you through ipage strengths and weakness in all of those impportant areas . and we will take a look at how ipage compares to the top hosts on the market.
Affordable price :- Ipage has some of the cheapest prices we have seen , and while most hosts hike up their renewal prices after first year. Ipages renewal prices are still very reasonable
Domain registration :- You can purchase domain names through ipage, meaning you can manage your website and domains from the same place . Now you can claim one free TLD domain with any hosting plan.
24/7 support:- You can speak to a member of the ipage support team and time , day or night, regardless of where you are in the world.
Poor Uptime :- Ipage guarantees less than six hours of “downtime” ( when your site is not accessible to visitors) per year, but that’s actually a high figure compared to others hosts
Data center :- Only one data center location. Ipage’s servers are all located in the Boston area. so if someone further away from north America visits your site, they might experience slower loading time. But site owner can use free cloudflare for fix up this load time
Automatic backups not included :- You all have to purchase this separately if you want ipage to back up your site for you. But you can use free backup plugins from wordpress.org
