iPower Web Hosting Review
Yes, I must admit: I am that kind of person that looks for the smallest price, and sometimes I am willing to make compromises when it comes to quality of services because of this. It is the main reason for me choosing iPower, as they were the only company willing to give me a reasonable package for 3.95 dollars a month. They are claiming the normal price is $7.95 a month, but I must tell you that this promotion is currently running for 4 months now. Let me tell you about my experience with iPower during this period.
The base package looks weaker than the average one, but it costs less than 4 dollars, right? Let’s see what you would get for that money.
|International domain extensions||Yes|
|Free Marketing Credits||AdWords, Facebook, Bing|
|URL Redirects, Error Solving features||Yes|
|Commerce Features with Agora Cart||Yes|
I must dedicate a section to the SSL Certificate with iPower, as this is the most profitable feature of this company. First, you can benefit from the GeoTrust service, which is currently known as the best security method that you can apply for your site. It currently costs $89.95 per year, and you can forget about any worries concerning security. Moreover, you will also benefit from an improved SSL certificate for $159 a year, and with an insurance of 100 000 dollars a year. As a conclusion, if you think about opening an online store and you want your clients to be safe, iPower is the service to choose.
Individual web hosting
Let us get back to what is relevant for us, small webmasters looking to improve a site or two. Well, iPower offers different packages considering your needs. The base package was already described, and we have established that it is a really profitable one considering its small price. If your site grows (it is recommended to change this plan if you have 200-300 visitors a day and 1000 newsletters to send every day, you can switch to the Pro Plus Plan of 11.95 $. This package is a little improved, and it could easily handle a page with 1000 visitors a day and 2000 newsletters to send.
Marketing and Web Design
IPower is one of those hosting companies that give complete solutions to the clients. Now, I am a fan of own web developing, meaning that I like to develop the webpages myself. However, this is not possible for everyone, and even if the services of iPower are a little expensive, the quality is absolutely great. One of my friends used it, and I must say I like his site more than I like some of mine. IPower does not only design your site, but they are also improving it, optimizing it for relevant searches. Moreover, they also have great systems to convert visitors into customers, and the 99 dollars you will pay for this service will surely be transformed into great sales. Bottom line, iPower is a great company if you want a virtual store and you don’t know how to handle it.
