VPS or dedicated hosting

Some things that users do not like are that you cannot upgrade your hosting to VPS or dedicated hosting yet, but these upgrades might be available soon. iPage hosting will not allow windows shared hosting. It is not recommended for hosting Joomla, WordPress, or Drupal blogs because the database connection can be slow at times.

The reliability of iPage hosting gets two thumbs up. iPage offers award winning services for great uptime and great customer services. The customer service is available through live chat, phone, and ticket system that are fast and will help you with anything that you are having problems with web hosting.

iPage’s payment option is very simple. You can pay by credit card or PayPal, but the registration can take a bit of time due to security purposes for your own safety. You will also have to pick out a domain that you want at no cost to you when you purchase their hosting plan.
