Better Business Bureau A+ Rating
iPage belongs to the Endurance International family. That’s the company you will find on BBB.
Being accredited by BBB means the business will make steps to handle customer complaints professionally. It’d be kind of an insurance policy for the customers. That said, I would prefer to do my research before buying, and not having to fill out complaint forms. So you are at the right place here.
One final note on BBB. People usually go there when they have a problem with a company. That’s why you’d often see a negative rating.
Be Happy or Get Your Money Back
I have heard about a couple of web hosts that say they have a full money back guarantee, but when the time comes actually to give the money back, they refer to some small prints in their terms of service that make their money back guarantee worth nothing. That’s not the case with iPage!
If you are not satisfied for any reason, you can get your money back in full. No questions asked.
200% Green Web Hosting
It’s a good thing to know that iPage buys enough Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) to offset energy use by 200%. That’s the equivalent of planting 244 acres of trees.
Here is how RECs work. They are certificates proving that even though you buy your electricity from the grid, the portion you use is made from renewable sources. Otherwise, there is no way to tell where the energy originally is coming from through the grid.
My Uptime Stats
You can see the uptime chart below. For 30 days 100% is a great score! The level they aim at is 99.99%. I remember a downtime about two months ago. That lasted for one minute.
Let’s look into the uptime in detail. At the time of writing this review, iPage had 100% uptime for the last 24 hours, seven days and thirty days as well. It’s a great score if you ask me. My WordPress installation loads fast enough, as usual, no issues in this area.
That’s just a snapshot though. Consistently one of the best web hosts, iPage has developed quite the following in business and personal circles as one of the go to web hosting companies.
