I am very dissapointed with the functionality of the weebly creator and the email system in ipower....the starter plans for those of us who are trying to start a small ecommerce business is horrible...can't add the simplest of options to items..i understand you get what you pay for but they would still be getting the fees for sales if anyone could actually place an order with options..i planned on upgrading to business or pro plan after a few sales but i plan on using a better company in the future..would not recommend ipower and or especially weebly to anyone....pure crap to scam you out of money a bit at a time...

Long term customer but I've had enough
Terrible system. The damned thing crashes at the worst times. Every year I need to deal with a crash. You can't talk to a human, so they have a chat system. You wait for 20 minutes or so for the privilege of talking to someone via chat who lies to you. Later, when I complain about the lie they tell me I must have misunderstood. What lie? "Within the next hour your service will be restored". Pretty clear to me what my expectations are after that statement.

I am forced to look elsewhere. I have no time for this crap, but apparently I must. I wish I could just find an e-mail provider who could handle my domain, provide me with service without all the drama.

Run away and fast
I had been customer of iPower for many years. Suddenly, they started billing accounts I did not want renewed and changed the status in the control panel from manual to automatic was reset. Customer support was horrible. Not only were they rude, but heaven forbid you ask for a supervisor. These guys were USELESS! iPower's motto should be "It is always the customers fault...it is never us".
I am taking away each account from them as they expire.
I hate this company so much. I want to see them fail for treating me so poorly as a customer. I hate them in the strongest way possible. I used to refer people to them years ago. Now, I tell my customers to RUN from them.

ipower have unfortunately proved themselves to be a morally dubious, money grabbing outfit. I wished to cancel my domain but missed the email telling me they would automatically renew and even though I contacted them within 14 days of the billing date they would not refund. I was charge in the region of 150USD for a domain I didn't want. They're the sort of company that makes their money from oversights and ultimately from other people's misfourtune. Shame on them.

One domain, which had had hosting canceled in '07, was still being charged annually for hosting. Finding out that the front office had been paying the bill, I called ipower. The client will get about $45 back from the 2009 renewal, but that's it as ipower says they "have no record of the cancellation," and apparently no records at all about customer activity.

A 2nd domain's information apparently just vanished; ipower could not find it, even though I got to spell it for them phonetically 5 times. With no renewals or emails, it has fallen into Redemption Period, what a headache. HOURS on the phone, ipower says contact TucowsInc, ipower is not the Registrant, TucowsInc say contact ipower, ipower is the Registrant; nobody can do anything unless they get $160.

A couple other domains cannot have the name server information modified because ipower appears to be unable to supply me with the proper information to access opensrs. What boggles me is when did the access info get changed, [read more...]

Low cost, high features, agonizingly slow and incompetent customer service.

I encounter ipower about twice per year, and dread it each time. I stay with them only because of momentum and dread the search/uncertainty/porting to a new ISP. Here is what to expect from them:

You get an email with threatening terms each year indicating you need to pay to renew. However, there is no link to the pay webpage, so you have to navigate their crappy interface to pay. There is no immediate indication that you have paid, so you aren't quite sure. Twice, I paid and then received a second threatening email, and had to phone them to straighten things out.

I started to notice that the terms of my plan for new users increased disk space and bandwidth etc, but they did not offer to increase mine. I asked, and they would not do it until my next renewal (4 months away). At that time, I had to negotiate it, again.

I recently received a renewal notice that had a HIGHER price than new [read more...]

I have been with Ipower for 7 years. The first 6 were great the last year horrible. Lots of down time and LOST ( yes Lost) e-mails during upgrade. Was promised everything would be better after the upgrade but e-mails slow or down monthly and they don't seem to understand that a 1 or 2 hour delay in getting an e-mail may means a mad or LOST customer. I am looking for a more reliable company and will change as soon as I find one

So far my service with ipower has been ok. (ipower pro plan) For the price i paid i am not disappointed, however i am not too sure what their service was like in the past. I am so convinced about their service that i even wrote a review here.
