iPower Hosting Overview
Anonymous
iPower was founded in 2001 by the current CEO of the company “Tomas Gorny”, a poland born private investment company owner. The company claims to have 700,000 customers. In year 2007, iPower was acquired by the EIG (Endurance International Group), although the CEO Tomas Gorny’s picture and name are still appearing on the about us page of the website.

The web hosting services of iPower cover Linux and Windows Shared Hosting, WordPress Hosting, VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, Email Hosting and Domain Registration. In addition, you can buy addon services, such as SSL certificates, SEO services and online backup tools.

iPower’s tech support is available via an online ticketing system, live chat, email forms and US only toll free telephone numbers on 24/7 basis. You can access the knowledge-base, user guide, tutorials on the iPower website under Help Center menu. The knowledgebase is quite basic and more likely beginner guide for site building and hosting.

There’s no claim about uptime guarantee on the iPower website, so we are unsure about whether they offer an uptime guarantee. iPower offers 30 days money back guarantee on hosting plans only valid for credit-card payments. There’s no money back guarantee on dedicated plans, addon services and domain orders.

While looking for the iPower reviews on Internet, we could find lots of negative reviews on various websites complaining on downtime and poor support incidents. iPower uses the custom control named vDeck which may be a downside for many people.

Most of the Windows Hosting also supports PHP and MySQL. If you wish to design a dynamic website, and you’re going to use ASP or ASP.NET, then a Windows Hosting account is a convenient choice. ASP.NET applications will ideally require some kind programming on your computer system before it can be used online. Windows hosting comparatively has lesser apps to choose from, and they all belong to licensed providers, you have to pay for. Also, Windows gives you the option for integrating different degrees of design management structures onto the website using the drag-and-drop mechanisms.

  • Question-2 :  What should I consider while selecting the best Windows Hosting provider?

    While choosing the best Windows Hosting provider you should always consider below points. Reliability and speed of access - Hosting provider should give 99.5% or higher uptime guaranteed. The host should provide some sort of refund if there is any downtime. Technical support - You should always choose a provider with 24/7/365 days of support. You also need to check what types of support options the host provides. Bandwidth - Check the amount of bandwidth the host provides per month as exceeding the limit may incur large bandwidth bills. Resources - You should check the number of resources allocated to a hosting plan like domains, subdomains, email accounts, storage space. Reviews - You should always check reviews and ratings of the host provider.

  • Question-3 :  Who can benefit from Windows hosting service?

    If most of the content of your website is static, and if you have low traffic website then you can consider Windows Hosting but you can always upgrade to a VPS as your website traffic increases. Also if you are not tech savvy and you want to host your simple website you can go for Windows Hosting as all the security and updates will be taken care from the host provider.

  • Question-4 :  Should I go for free OR cheap Windows Hosting provider?

    Many host providers give Free or cheap Windows hosting(less than $0.99 USD) but you should check if they impose advertisement on your website. They also impose file type and size limitation. They also do not provide any ETA on your support request. You should also check if they provide FTP access as some providers only allow you to build your website with their website builder.

  • Question-5 :  What is the average cost of Windows Hosting service?

    Shared Windows hosting service range from $3 to more than $35 a month. You just need to make sure there is no compromise with the resources and service provided when you choose from a low cost provider. You should always check reviews and support response of the provider before choosing one.
