Domain renewal nigthmare
Ipage use to be a good hosting company, but in the last few years they have gone downhill. Sure support is available 24 hours a day but youl will spend at least 1 hour on the phone waiting to take to support and online chat takes longer. Beware of what you sign up for, this is a company that will try to nickel and dime you to death, including after your purchase. When you log into your control panel you will be presented with several offers to purchase addition services, You will need to decline these offers before you can get to your control panel. Also be careful where you click in your control panel because the control panel is littered with ads for additional services. In the last month I have had several problems with ipage on multiple domains I manage.
BEWARE: When I was renewing my ipage hosting, my domains showed an expiration that was good for another year. At this point I’m thinking "ok, I must have purchased the domains for 2 years instead of 1 year" so because the [read more...]

iPage Borders on Credit Card Fraud
iPage borders on committing credit card fraud. I have carefully set my accounts to only manually renew (set them NOT to auto-renew) for two years in a row and yet iPage has automatically charged my credit card to renew hosting services for each year. I have then had to call iPage staff to ask them to refund my card. The iPage staff never seem to care about the problem and the card does not get refunded. I have then had to call back a second time to finally get my money back for the services I did not intend to purchase in the first place. This means that iPage is charging a credit card that they DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE for services that the client did not agree to purchase.

In addition, iPage uses deceptive practices to make it appear that consumers are receiving a cheap service when in reality it is expensive after the first year. They do this by offering VERY inexpensive services for the first year and not advertising anywhere that the prices will go up by roughly 14 times [read more...]

"Contrary to a lot of the reviews that I have read on the internet about ipage, my experience with them has been very good. Even though I am based in Europe, the page load times are very quick throughout the day, and I have not experienced any downtime more than a couple of minutes.
There are several services that you have to pay extra for, but that is the same for all budget hosting packages. One thing I would like, that they do not offer, is the option of a dedicated IP. Overall though, I am happy with them as a host and would use them again for additional websites."
Ian Smitton ( -no email- ) / http://www.cyclefiesta.com
"Well, I've read the reviews for ipage and am disappointed of what comes up in almost all the reviews.. I've been hosting with godaddy for quite a while and I am not really happy with their services.. It's hard to reach the support because there's only phone support and not chat support.. With iPage, from the first time I've landed to the site from a google search, It gives me a feeling that they can assists me all the time I needed them.. I'm not really good at hosting domains and hosting services but I'm using their service now and I'm contented with it. They provide unlimited hosting of domains at cheap price, they also provide great support.. I've been talking to their support numerous times and I am glad to have each of them on my chat box because they can answer all the questions I need and resolve any issues I have encountered.. with those concerns actually it's not their fault.. It's me being technically newbie at hosting gives my sites problems.. :D In my conclusion, This is way better than what I've experienced with hostgator and godaddy..
I've learned stuffs from their support and I am satisfied with the service that they are providing me.. I don't know if I'm going to experience trouble with them but so far it was a great experience.. I'll be checking this website often so that I can see some more reviews good or bad.. I just want to see what's really happening around me..
Thank You!"

Great for 1 domain only - NOT multiples
If you have more than one site to host here, it cannot be done without extended assistance through chat.

Chatpeople at ipage are GREAT, no maybe's about it, but, still, there is no way for you the customer to create and host multiple domains there. Only the primary domain purchased through ipage.com can be used, no way to create even simple pointers, because there are NO buttons anywhere on the site for pointers or subfolders.

We have many accounts with many companies, and never ran into quite this issue before. We paid for several years in advance just based on reviews and their claim to have a million domains. Sorry, we do not believe that number at all.

Price WOULD be good for multiple domains, but slightly pricey for just one site.

READ THE TRICKY, TEENY, TINY SMALL PRINT
Their advertised refund policy is bogus...read the teeny tiny small print!!! I don't remember it there when I purchased their hosting service but it is there now...even so, their tactics are questionable. I paid $114.80 and soon after decided I had gotten in over my head and requested refund. They only refunded $54.00???? After multiple attempts to get an reason for the partial refund, each response stating my secret question answer was incorrect??, the EXACT same answer given before they processed the partial refund...suddenly the answer is wrong?? What a SCAM. I am guessing that is how they stay in business. The add ons I signed up for were for the sole purpose of promoting the page ...the page that never existed????????? I have filed a claim through Paypal...Also, noticed that they had already been posted for a renewal fee???? Thankful I noticed that...so canceled it. If you get scammed by these people and you used paypal be sure to check for other fees they have set up to take [read more...]

HORROR STORY- iPage
iPage is by far the most horrible "company" I have ever come across. There are literally 1000s of complaints all across the internet from people who have been ripped off by this scam of a company.

They charge you after cancelling, and then refuse to refund the money the stole.

They lie to you over and over.

They post FAKE REVIEW SITES (LIKE THIS ONE) WHERE THEY GIVE THEMSELVES RAVE REVIEWS.

THIS IS THE MOST HORRIBLE RIP OFF COMPANY OUT THERE. DO NOT TRUST THEM WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD OR YOUR PERSONAL INFO. CHECK OUT THE COMPLAINTS BOARDS...AND CHECK OUT THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. THEY ARE A TOTAL SCAM AND THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY. PERIOD.

Could I have a one person point of contact? instead of having to repeat the same problem over and over, every time I call Tech Support? kind of like a "personal tech support" like IXwebhosting?
Price? = competitive; Customer support= very good, professional, patience, but delivers poor results. I want to stay with ipage. but I am beginning to believe I should have switched to some other web hosting Co.
When there are trouble tickets outstanding for six days.... and I don't hear anything from Ipage... it really makes me wonder if I made the right choice switching to Ipage. When I purchase a service that is sold by a couple clicks... and you get an error message… that is not good service. When you call to report that error message and you don’t hear anything back… you tell me what a reasonable person is supposed to think?

Worst Host Ever! I have 5+ pages of error alert emails.
I started my blog in October. Until then I used Arvixe which was never down but I didn't know what I was doing back then. I went with this company because review sites were recommending it. I now realize they are all affiliates. There was only 1 bad review and it was stupid and the person was wrong. I thought I hit the jackpot. When I first started it was alright. I would go to my site and it would be down and I would call customer service and they would apologize saying "Sorry our server is down". I was nice about it but how many times is that supposed to fly? Fast forward to now- any and all website analysis I get says my site is super slow (92% slower than other websites). I have to wait at least 40 seconds for a page to open most times. I have fallen asleep waiting for a page to open. Thats only when it will open. I started getting error messages a while back. My site is so slow my networked blogs cant even read the feed so my site isn't publishing automatically to my social fan [read more...]

It has become the WORST HOST
OK, when I started with ipage in 2009 I had no problems for maybe 6 months....................then it all started to go wrong,
1st the server went down & after some days they admitted they had problems so gave me another server number. It worked for a time but many problems to date.
The most notable, NOT BEING ABLE TO LOGIN TO ANYTHING including my mail, about 6 months ago I had decided to make them my default mail provider via my website & use only their service for my emails. Fortunately I kept Gmail also because due to the log-in problems I have been unable to reach either my control panel or my emails.
Also at one point recently I was given another new server, this time not a number but ftp.ipage.com.............this has never connected for more than 2 weeks so I changed it back to my original server & it worked for uploading my site only. However I had to change my password again & again & to date I still can't login using either my own password or the temporary one given to [read more...]

Ipage has the slowest customer service response time. Ipage has slowest and worst customer service. My website was down for like 3 days and it took them 3 days to fix the dam small website that barely has any contents. Agents take forever to respond when I need to chat with them.

All the good reviews they have are PAID MARKETINGS. ipage also has 2 mb upload limit... which makes it impossible to build even a decent website. They also have 60 sec execution time which makes so that even if they increase it to 10 mb upload size limit, you can only upload 2mb in the end with the execution time limit. Oh and default is 2mb size limit... you have to ask and beg them to lift it to 10 mb. It's ridiculous. Do not use ipage hosting service. DO not use their sister company ipower either.
They are basically same company (ipage and ipower). I paid about 80 bucks and they will only return like 20 something dollars. I am going to wait until my time is up then canceling it. All the savvy [read more...]

People need to know the businesses they use as much as businesses need to market to the right customers.

It looks like a lot of negative reviews are from people with low patience, high IT skills and a significant amount of material to host. If this is the case, then iPage may not be the best solution for massive quantities of website and email storage.

But smaller businesses and organizations may enjoy iPage's creative ways of establishing a system of plug-and-play software, freeware, open-source and a handful of useful tools that can be used - especially for a staff with limited IT skills or budget.

The price is a good value at $4.50 a month for the hosting package that includes a domain, emails, six-page website and so on. Sometimes it's lowered, depending on what specials are offered.

Customer support is great, if you actually have conversational skills. Shooting an email and getting upset they didn't respond to you in less than a minute.. dude, just pick up the phone [read more...]

They stole $23.99 from me. I canceled the host because I couldn't do pretty much anything with the service. They limited to a website of just 6 pages. I couldn't use css or html without upgrading and couldn't add a forum page. It was to be made as another website. Also, they said the $23.99 was not refundable because they bought the domain for me and kept it for a year. That means I cannot remake the website with the same domain. They guaranteed money back. Then, they should give me back the money. What the scam! I think that they should be sued.

Ipage, as well as other hosting companies, state "unlimited" disk space. This isn't true. They do have a limit but you don't know what it is because their TOS refers to "normal use, section 13."

One day, you may receive a notice from the legal department stating that you have exceeded the disk space and will be terminated in three days if you don't reduce the size on disk.

Now, since you don't know how far over you are, then how do you know how much to remove? I spent almost two weeks buying more hosting from another company that states a hard size limit and then uploading to that server. All those days of uploading at 60K, the htaccess files and email accounts. I really don't have a word to express my contempt for Ipage.

I had over 10 sites hosted with Ipage and my disk space went over 25 gig. That triggered the notice.

I had no problem with Ipage performance, price and service but the unlimited "lie" did it for me.

At first, you think, well it's ok, quite easy to set up etc. Then you start uploading files.. ok.. after few weeks, the ftp becomes slow... sometime VERY slow.

Then, you host a Wordpress Blog... SO SLOW!!! you go back to the site... slow slow slow... DOWN !

You reach the customer support... "APOLOGY, the servers are down / we 're having a peak.. BLA BLA It won t happen again"

4 weeks later... SLOW SLOW --> Customer support: "APOLOGY BLA BLA"

If you want to host an E-commerce web site or any kind of web site where speed and availability is important.. just forget about Ipage. I truly would have prefer to pay twice more for a "normal" hosting company.

The customer service seems to be really good at saying that they apology but never expect anything from them. They will just close the ticket by saying "I tested your site, it works"! This, just after telling them that it came back but for the second time in a month it was very slow or down for 2 hours.

Disingenuous marketing, to say the least - the kind of people you do NOT want to trust.

To get a simple web hosting plan you have to wade through 5 or 6 screens of upselling, THEN once registered, you HAVE to move your domain name registration to them (which - surprise! - is probably more expensive than your existing registrar)...of course there's no warning of this ahead of time.

Then you cancel for your 'full money back refund' only to find that anything you purchased during the endless upselling is NOT refunded.

They're simply a bunch of con artists as far as I'm concerned. I went for Inmotion instead.

They are good for cost and what they provide but be warned, they are ALWAYS down!! It stinks that I am always trying to get to my website to find out that it 1. does not load, 2. has some error page 3. just stops and never goes off of page that I am currently on. They have a chat where you can speak to their help but all they will say is, "our tech people are working on it" or "we have no idea when it will be back up." I understand servers have issues but ipage is always down. And sometimes it will be 3-4 days at a time. I think since this happens WAY too often they need to do something on their end so it won't happen.

I am a smaller company, so for me Ipage has been great. Their customer service has always been excellent, and for the most part I deal w/the same person every time, b/c I dial their extension. I have noticed that an email sent from my other personal accounts to my business account has quite a delay, so in that aspect not so great. Their control panel used to manage your own website can be difficult. if you have no experience or knowledge of web design. Overall right now, I am happy my service w/ Ipage. We will see as my business grows, if it will still be satisfactory.

iPage is ALWAYS having issues!! I cannot count the number of times there is a "database error" or it cannot connect. Last month there was an entire weekend where none of the sites were accessible and now they are having problems again! I'm sorry ipage but this is ridiculous!!

Okay ipage will it works like this if you have a small site they will love you and you will like them. I it's easy to use control panel, and they are up almost all the time. However If you have a site that uses a lot of memory they will shut you down quickly. I designed a lot of sites and i used a lot of server hosts, for example i have four sites with ipage.com for now. There terms of agreement states that they can shut you down when they feel like it. (User agreement part 18) They state that you may use as much memory as long you have it liked to the site that is a lie. The customer supports are rude and they may close the phone on you if they don't want to deal with your problem. Truly the only thing about this company they have a great control panel. My advice is to find other host for your sites. There is a lot of host that are better than ipage and cheaper.

crazy slow loading for a simple blog site that gets 3 hits a day. I like cpanel (for customer that wanted to make own site mods) but the site load is torture.

Their entire hosting platform is down since last 48 hours. Sites don't load at all or only partially loads without images. I have been with iPage since last 6+ months. The essential plan is the cheapest plan on the net @35$. But with cheapness in price comes cheapness in service. If you have a serious blog or site please choose better ones than ipage. While for me i have learnt my lesson and i am definately going to pay 3-4 times more for hosting next time .

This is my big mistake that i purchased hosting plan from ipage.com. Their server was toooo slow that wordpress unable to take speed. I also hosted on Hostgator which i am running ecommerce website on shared hosting and it is running soo fast that i don't want to use CDN.

Ipage customer support are very poor they never give you support only say do your own work. I lost my $35 for one year hosting and within 3 month i move my wordpress to hostgator. You can also see this status on screenshot - http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/9964/hgipagestatus.jpg and you can think about that how both hosting have different speed. NEVER EVER BUY IPAGE AGAIN. VERY BAD EXPERIENSE.

IPage has issues with uptime. Seems about every quarter there is some outage issues. Take today for example. My site has been down for over an hour and a half and still counting.

Tech support is good, but what good are they when they cant explain why they have outages?

Google Adwords and all marketing ventures have to now be manually paused to avoid losing money on empty clicks to no where.

I am considering moving to a more stable provider.

I signed up with iPage and made a mistake in my email. They needed a copy of a government id sent to them to prove who I am blahblah. After dealing with this and not being able to get into my account for about a week I decided to cancel with them, I was told I would get a refund in 7 - 10 business days. After 15 days still hadnt received the full refund as stated so I emailed them again. Oh there was a glich in their system and it has now been cancelled and everything deleted was the answer. I never even used their pathetic system. Anyway I have to wait another 7 -10 business days to receive the full refund. When I signed up I ended up with a bill for around $67 so much for the $3 plus a month for 6 months service. I changed hosts because I was having an issue with my old one and found out after I had signed up with iPage that the problem was not the hosting co that I have always been with that has never been a problem but a Skype Add On , I could not get into my hosts site or [read more...]

I signed up after reading some marketing pages that verified servers work with frontpage. Their support pages stated that Sharepoint should be used since frontpage is no longer supported. However, after following the exact instructions, and reinstalling extensions, I was not able to upload server. I also determined from support pages that they do not support some basic frontpage functions such as openweb (3rd party tool workaround). After 13 minutes on hold I was told to FTP my stie, but I refused since I want the benefits of sharepoint maintenence. I was finally told the website notes about sharepoint support are incorrect and I had to cancel my account immediately. I will monitor to make sure I get my refund back properly based on other comments.

I see a lot of negative reviews here for iPage, but to be honest I've been with them for a couple of months, and while it's not perfect, I feel I'm getting a good value.

+

First: Unlimited space and bandwidth. I do not use a lot of both, but I like to know I will not be overcharged for extra if I go above a certain limit. This is of course not meant to host files not related to the website or to host a big website, it's for small companies and personal websites.

Second: Running time. My previous server was always down, with iPage it happened twice for only a couple of minutes since I'm with them. For the price I'm paying it is acceptable, I'm not the only one using the server after all.

Third: unlimited databases (mySQL) and the ability to use many PHP applications is a plus. I've been installing a chat software I use with coworkers and a blog. My previous host only allowed 1 database...
4- I like the control panel, it's fast and easy to use.

Yes, Ipage sucks. I bought their package last week, which they said was php compatible over chat. Then got on to the user page and found out their "drop & drag" was Weebly (which is free and not php compatible), and their other template service was free for the first 9 pages, after that was a monthly service fee (I have over 200 pages to transfer). I could get both services for free online without paying Ipage. What on earth did I pay for in the first place??? Then they wouldn't refund me my SEO package that I paid extra for even though they have a 100% money back guarantee during the first 30 days. I just bought it a few days ago and never used anything! They said they didn't refund products. I told them that I wanted my product then, and they said once I canceled, I no longer had access to the user page and couldn't use my product. Lesson learned! Don't waist your time on Ipage. Do some research and you will find much better website builders than Ipage. I found a great one [read more...]

I found iPage through cNet. Cnet’s rating said you could complete your transaction completely online. Not true. They didn’t have a function to open an account unless you register a new domain or want to transfer a domain. No. I control the domains. I’ve been burned way too many times when I want to transfer.

So, I took cNet’s word, and contacted iPage. The only time I ever reached them was to give them a credit card number. I never received an email with login info, I never was able to reach a human on the phone, I tried their “chat” but no one home…I sent them two emails from their form…and nothing.

It’s four days later, and I found another host. I have to dispute the charges with my credit card.

Thanks iPage. You suck.

cNet, you suck.

Ipage really sucks. My website was 5- 10 times all days down and running slow. In the ipage support chat working people which don t know nothing they are saying all the time the same phrases. Horrible service and I will never sign up again! And I was also reading all the positive comments! But it is not true!

Had an account for a few months. We built a site which had only the three of us as visitors. Even so, the site kept dying; SQL connection errors, random timeouts and overall sluggishness. Tech support is useless - all they do is serve canned responses and 'elevate the issue to a higher level', only to resolve it a few hours later with no explanation whatsoever. They're cheap though and have a ton of options and extras, which is cool, but kind of useless if your website is dying with a few visitors a day. Avoid, unless you plan on having a simple website with virtually no PHP or other scripting. Mine was a basic Joomla site, maybe it'd work with something simpler though.

First off, if you search Google for ipage reviews DO NOT stop and read any of the top hits. I get the feeling those are paid (by ipage) advertising sites.

I signed up with iPage on a Thursday evening. I didn't receive any email at checkout. I didn't receive any notification at all that first night. Wondering what might be going on I got on the live chat with them on the next morning (Friday). Only then did they setup my account.

I had already looked on Thursday evening to see if the domain had been registered. It had but it had all my personal information showing. I had paid the extra amount to have privacy on the domain. They did fix that later but why should I have to run that down.

OK, they got me setup at this point. I loaded up my pages. Did some work for a week or two. I noticed the response times were kind of slow so I put in monitor over at the http://mon.itor.us/ site. The response times were all over the place for the home page (which did practically nothing). It [read more...]
