 The Good & The Bad 

The Good: iPower services are very reasonably priced when compared to other hosting services in the same market. You will also find a great selection of tools so there are not a lot of additional charges for things like new email accounts, data bases and etc.
The Customer service is better than average in that you get 24/7 US based Chat and phone lines. Up-time is near 100% and when the hosting is down it’s not for a long period of time.

The Bad: The introductory price is only good for 1st Year. For the 2nd year and there-after full prices apply for hosting and domain name. Along with this I find some of the advance services can be somewhat pricey. Especially those required by small to mid-level business sites.
While customer service is available 24/7 if the issue is not presented properly, resolving the issue can be somewhat time consuming.
For the absolute beginner working with iPower will present a learning curve.

So Who is iPower For?
I recommend iPower Hosting for individuals entering the market working with a web designer and looking to learn the basics of web development.
I highly recommend iPower for Small to Mid-sized Business’s with a web designer on staff. The unlimited hosting of domains in the Unlimited Pro and Pro Plus Plans make this company ideal for start-up’s and growing enterprises as well.
More than 1,000,000 customers from more than 100 countries depend on the iPower platform every day for speed, reliability, security and global reach.

  1. I’ve never heard of iPower but sounds like it’s a good web hosting plan to try out! The prices are affordable and it looks nice too. I’m using Hostgator now and paying like $14.95 a month, its mental :/

  2. Hi. A great site with a nice layout. Lots of relevant information and good navigation as well so fit for purpose as they say.

    • Yes Randy it’s a pretty good company. I have looked at many options including self-hosting. Unless you want to go into the hosting business, for individuals or small business this is the best I’ve found.
