Worst hosting provider imaginable

Their non-standard admin panel (they don't have Cpanel) and their shaky/unreliable/janky "Install Central" service are fatally flawed. Their install central simply ate our web-site. "Oh well!" says the support agent.

Piss-poor isn't even close to negative enough to describe how terrible the attitude of their support people are.

Oh, and "Install Central" doesn't generate any kind of "log" or "receipt email"--see also SimpleScripts for an example of how this function should work.

Biggest Pro: I guess it sort of works.
Biggest Con: Support, Customer Service, Admin panel all flat-out suck.

Don't use if you require a database!

So far, I have been with IPage for 3 weeks. In that time, my site has been down for 10-15 minutes at least 4 times a week, that I am aware of. The problem is that they have overloaded their database server, and my site main page needs to use it, as does my message board, an integral feature of my site. At first they kept denying that they even had a problem. Today, however, the support person I spoke with (by the way, don't count on getting one that is fluent in english and easy to understand) told me that they had a "temporary problem with the database for the last 10 minutes". When I told them this had happened numerous times, and asked their solution, she simply said "we have solution" and at that point quit communicating with me. I think I'll be switching host's. At least they do have a money-back guarantee. I'll be using it!

Biggest Pro: Money back guarantee.
Biggest Con: Out-sourced tech support

Constant down time and server issues

I started with iPage because I saw good reviews elsewhere and they were cheap for unlimited access. I regret the decision now. They not only screwed me when I first signed up and automatically charged me for a bunch of additional security crap that I didn't need, but my site is SLOW and is only live randomly because of "database issues". My site is not large, it's run through a wordpress theme, and takes FOREVER and a day to load, when it's up. Unless you want to pay for a dedicated server (which I don't have experience with and can't guarantee it'll work) I would suggest staying away from iPage. I do, however, applaud their attempts at being green by using wind powered energy!

Biggest Pro: "green" energy
Biggest Con: Server speed & database reliability is horrible

My iPage experience was terrible. Would NOT recommend to newbies.

Their money back guarantee turned out not to be "all my money back". The deducted $15 for my "free" domain name or registration or some damn thing. This is a company only a lawyer could love.
Tech support couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.

Biggest Pro: Able to ultimately get some live chat help, although the help didn't resolve the issues.
Biggest Con: Tech support has the technical skills God gave gravel.

BEWARE. Only 6 pages to be published for it $3.50/mo deal.

I am new to web hosing and I saw the iPage $3.50/mo promo deal and signed up. I tried to used its Sitebuilder to build my website and discovered that there is a six (6) pages limit. If I want to publish more than 6 pages, I must sign up for the premium service which cost another $9.50/mo. This limitation is not made know to mein iPage promo. So, buyer beware!! Moreover, they have very few unattractive web templates to choose from. If you want choices, iPage only give little.

Refund: Their full refund mean they will deduct $15. So, you will not get a full refund!. Obnly partial. To get refund, I must contact them after I cancelled the subscription. Their so call specialist will not contact you. You must contact them to get refund after you cancel.

If you are new to web hosting like me, try to sign up for FREE trial. There are many out there.

Biggest Pro: Ipage has live chat sales team. So, you can get contact them easily.
Biggest Con: For $3.5/mo, there is a 6-pages limitation if you use their Sitebuilder to build your site. very few choices of template.
