Expert iPage Review 2018

Overview

With over 10 years of hosting experience, iPage caters to numerous businesses and private websites with the service’s flexible and highly reliable WordPress hosting packages. Known for its ease of use, iPage’s interface is very intuitive and its website building tools are designed to allow even a first time user to easily set up and publish their very own website

Features

iPage is an excellent choice for personal clients and small business users, who are looking for a one stop shop for all of their WordPress hosting needs with their excellent customer support and adorable all-included hosting packages featuring unlimited resources and enhanced WordPress platform and cPanel.

Though iPage’s WordPress-compatible hosting packages are designed for more novice webmasters, they do include such unique features as an enhanced WordPress cPanel which can be used for easy integration with the open source CMS, an enhanced WordPress platform that ensures super speed via an SSD-based infrastructure and enhanced security courtesy of SiteLock deluxe security bundle.

However, iPage does exhibit rather limited support of programming languages or manual system maintenance and configuration. In fact, the only supported programming language is Perl. Also, none of the service’s hosting plans include root access to the website’s server, limiting customized configuration capabilities.

Plans

Offering its customer Shared Hosting, VPS and Dedicated Hosting packages, as well as new WordPress compatible hosting packages, iPage is popular for its affordable, all-included hosting packages that provide users with unlimited hosting resources, 1-click WordPress installation wizards, enhanced WordPress-compatible cPanels, in addition to such supplementary features as email inboxes, e shopping cart and free domain registration.

Ease of Use

Due to its ease of use, and more basic hosting packages, iPage is better suited for beginner, or less tech-savvy users. iPage features great drag & drop website building tools and plug-ins that are perfectly integratable with WordPress, and free domain registration and unlimited disk space and bandwidth, all of which are designed to help users create and build their very own WordPress websites with all of the resources they should ever require.

Customer Support

iPage’s customer support staff is excellent and easy to get a hold of via 24/7 email, phone and live chat support. Also, the support staff is very accommodating, however, you may find that in some cases the first responder may not be successful in resolving your issue, and escalation will be necessary.
