Why I host my website with iPage Hosting
iPage is one of the world leaders in web hosting. This alone, however, doesn’t explain why I choose them to host my website. There are many popular web hosting companies, some even bigger than iPage. Yet I have several sites hosted on iPage and I find that they serve my needs better than many of the competition.
Features and Benefits of iPage
iPage is a highly experienced web hosting company that has been in business for more than ten years. They have over a million customers around the world and they host a wide variety of sites, including businesses, social media sites and ones for non-profit organizations. They are flexible enough to be able to work with all kinds of customers and allow them to build the type of sites they need.
iPage provides an impressive selection of features that helps website owners make the most out of their sites. With their very reasonable shared hosting plan you get:
Unlimited core features
Unlimited bandwidth, disk space and MySQL databases.
Unlimited addon domains
You can create multiple websites under one account. In other words, you can host multiple websites under one single hosting account. This is great to save a lot of money if you have more than 1 websites!
Free online store
You have a choice of shopping cart software and you can integrate PayPal for easy acceptance of payments.
You get a free drag and drop site builder that comes with a good selection of templates. This makes it simple for even novices to build a website quickly from scratch.

Free Yellowpages.com listing, $100 credit for Google Adwords, $50 credit for Facebook ads and a $25 credit for Yahoo!/Bing Sponsored Search.
These are some of the reasons why iPage is such a complete and user friendly web host. One of the things I like about it is that it’s very easy for non-technical website owners to get started. Their site builder is very intuitive and lets you create a professional looking site quickly. There’s a Photo Gallery Setup Wizard so you can manage your images easily. They even start you off with a free domain name!
I have been using iPage for over 5 years, and find that it’s perfect for all types of websites. It’s easy to set up an online store if, like me, you want to sell some products from your site. The Google AdWords and other advertising credits let you start off with some free advertising without using your own money.
I am also very impressed with their customer support. This is an essential feature when it comes to web hosting. Unless you’re a tech guru, you will probably have questions from time to time.
Even if you are tech savvy, there’s always a chance that you will have to talk to someone about a problem or issue. When this happens, you don’t want to have to wait for hours or even days to get a response. iPage has around the clock support and, as noted, you can usually get someone on the phone within 60 seconds!
iPage hosting price
Despite being a trusted and feature-rich web host, iPage does not charge a lot for its hosting. I am always surprised by how affordable it is, in fact. Perhaps because they have so many customers they can afford to keep their rates down.
If you manage to sign up when iPage is running a special promotion, you can really get a great deal. I actually got my hosting for $1.89 per month, which is certainly one of the cheapest web hosting rates you will ever see. The last time I checked, they were still offering this incredible deal. To be able to get world class hosting for less than $2 per month is truly a bargain!
Check out iPage at their official website and see if you can grab a good deal.
For some of the reasons I’ve discussed, I am very happy with iPage. I have several sites hosted with them, and if I build any new ones I can do so under the same account. They offer more features than I ever need, provide excellent support and their prices are cheap as well. So I have no complaints and no reason to look for an alternative. I have tried quite a few web hosts over the years and eventually settled on iPage as the one that offers the best overall value.
I would always recommend doing your own due diligence before choosing web hosting. Check out iPage for yourself. See if they offer the features you will need for your own website. This goes for people who are planning to build their very first website as well as anyone who already has hosting but is thinking of switching. You might be paying more for web hosting right now and getting less in return. It’s quite simple to switch to iPage from another host… let me know if you need any help, or you can request help from the web hosting support.
If you are curious about iPage hosting, you can not only look over their website, but talk to someone through live chat or over the phone. They can give you information on issues such as starting a new website, or signing up with them.
