By checking a website hosted on iPage with the iwebtool.com’s speed test I got the following result:
0.01 seconds average speed per kilobyte for shared hosting is extremely impressive. Only dedicated and vps servers can deliver such speed. Thats why we are quite impressed with iPage’s speed stats.
iPage do provide 99.9% uptime guarantee, but according to Monitis statistics the actual figure is 99.7%. Which still is quite impressive.
Help & Support:
iPage’s support is of absolutely world class. They offer online chat, email, phone support and help center with tutorials & guides. The response time to online chat was instant. When I called the technical support helpline my call was answered in 17 seconds. So I would give them a five star rating for their Help & Support.
- No dedicated IP
- No private SSL
- No option of switching hosting plan to VPS or Dedicated Servers.
iPage is the ideal choice for individuals & small businesses, although SEO experts & nosy webmaster would like a dedicated IP & the option to switch to VPS & Dedicated Servers. But with a great hosting speed, cheap price, a lot of features & great reliability I would highly recommend iPage.
