The purpose of this post is to review two of the most popular web hosting programs out on the market today, iPage and Hostgator, in order for you to choose a program that will suit your needs and budget. Review- Pros and Cons

For 14 years has been providing quality web hosting services for small and medium websites at affordable prices.

  • iPage guarantees 99% uptime with dedicated support.  
  • 24/7 technical support (live chat, phone, email, support ticket)
  • Uses vDeck, popular web hosting panel
  • Unlimited space, bandwith, domains, and email accounts between $2.50-$3.50 per month
  • 30 day refund of the hosting package within 30 days, excluding add-on packages.  
  • Powered on 100% wind energy
  • Does not offer upgrades
  • .ASP is not supported on their servers
  • Does not support SSH access
  • Does not provide windows hosting solution
  • Some problems with performance on websites powered by WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal
  • You get the lower web hosting price when you pay for your web hosting up front versus monthly.  If you pay monthly, the fee is $6.50 per month.
  • Their coupons are for a limited time only and change quickly. Review - Pros and Cons has been providing web hosting services to over 150,000 customers and 170 countries since 2002.

I have used both iPage and Hostgator for my websites and both are easy to use.  However, I give the edge to iPage for their technical support.  Their technical support is professional, friendly, and have quick turnaround times.  Any technical support issues I have had, iPage were resolved within 5 minutes to 1 hour tops.
