I am currently hosted by iPage for my business website LearnDrill.com. Although my business has been slow to grow, I consistently have a high rank on Google. iPage has provided plenty of tools to create and manage a website. They include business emails and forwarding, website design in multiple programming languages, and various upload/download mechanics including easy FTP. The user interface is fairly easy to use, but often times a bit cluttered due to the vast amount of things you can do with iPage’s web tools. All the information you could ever need is located in an easy to read side panel. There has been no problems with hosting data, because I have unlimited disk usage at no extra cost. The free Visitor Statistics app is nice, but I prefer Google Analytics.
When I first created my site, the cost for a full year was approximately $30 for both the domain name and hosting. However, costs skyrocketed in the second year to almost $200. However, each year I am given $100 in free Google Ads and $50 in Facebook Ad credits. While the cost is certainly high, I have experienced no downtime and the benefits are entirely worth the cost. iPage allows me to add as many domain names as I wish to redirect to my main page. Between all of these things, my visibility is extremely high.
I highly recommend trying iPage out for at least a year. If you are not satisfied, it will not cost much, but my only complaint after two years is the cost.
