Now that we've reviewed iPage from all sides, we can make a conclusion. iPage is a cheap hosting company, which provides everything needed to create a small web-project. The user allegedly receives unlimited features, but is actually limited in their use. The client can always request a refund, but a large part of it will be retained. Our team recommends that you read the rules carefully before purchasing, and thoroughly test the hosting within the first 30 days after sign-up.
With iPage hosting, your website will be stable unless you have a lot of visitors. This hosting isn't suited for sites with large server load, but it's a good choice for small projects.
