The company went inactive for years and were relaunched October 2009. The new iPage is now leaded by a brand new management and provides everything you need to start a website. This includes web hosting, website mangement, email hosting, domain registration, e-commerce services, website scripting, as well as web marketing.
Why iPage is the best hosting for bloggers?
iPage is my choice of blog hosting for several good reasons:
Wide Blogging Software Choices iPage has the most comprehensive software support for bloggers- one-click installation is available for various blog platforms includingWordPress, PixelPost, b2evolution, Nucleus; plus, the in-house Fantastico-alike program also support a wide range of other blog-related software like Gallery2, Coppermine, Gbook, and e107.
Affordable Hosting Plan iPage shared hosting plan cost $4.50/mo – which is a lot more cheaper than others (Bluehost $6.95/mo, Hostgator $7.95/mo, GreenGeeks $6.95/mo). The price tag might not bethe cheapest but I’m strongly convinced that it’s among the lowest you can get. With less than $4 amonth, you’ll get unlimited hosting storage, bandwidth, addon domains, and most importantly, a responsive and effective customer supports.
Protective Refund Policy iPage is one of the very few that offers anytime money back guarantees. With such refund policy, iPage users get pro-rated refund even the cancellation is done after the 30 days trial period.

iPage Customers Review
Here’re more supporting feedbacks on iPage services.
iPage is a convenient web host. "When I first began this account I had no idea what to do or where to turn to even begin building a website. Once I logged into my account I found everything is easily accessed and labeled for an easier find as well as categorized. Convenient hosting, reliable technicians and great beginner soft-ware. " – Brandt J from Warwick, Rhode Island @ Mac 08, 2010.
Best customer service so far! " Everyone knows that the companies that stand out in our minds are the ones that we experience problems with. And it’s not the problem that defines the memory we hold of that company, but the way in which the problem was handled. iPage stands out in my mind for having exceptional customer service!! Somehow my credit card got charged twice for my hosting package—as soon as I realized this I called customer service and they took care of the overbilling immediately and were very friendly and apologetic. Then a few days later I received a card in the mail again apologizing for the incident. It just showed me that with iPage I am more than a number. They know customers are the ones paying the bills and if they don’t keep their customers happy they won’t have any business—I really like that about a company. They are also a Green Hosting company, which makes me feel like I’m doing my part to give back, if only in a small way." – Heather @ Mac 04, 2010.
iPage is my choice! "When I called iPage I was looking for information in an attempt to discern whether I would go with iPage or another company for my web hosting needs. Being new to website hosting, Logan was very helpful. He had Mac knowledge that answered a big question for me, walked me through what I needed to do to transfer my domain name, offered to call me back/take a call when I had everything ready for transfer on my end, and was overall very pleasant to talk with. He was helpful, and I appreciated his being pretty patient of my need to stay on the phone with him until I’d completed the process. He responded to my needs in a professional and friendly way. He was able to answer all my myriad of "newbie" questions very well. I did choose to go with iPage, rather than the other company, largely because of Logan. I hope to always receive the quality of service that Logan exhibited!" – Connie from Worthington, OH @ Feb 17, 2010.
We are taking our web building business to iPage. "Isiah from Ipage support was very helpful, courteous, pleasant and informative when I spoke with him. He didn’t rush me through the questions that I had and offered to help beyond what I asked. Thank you for good support. This is the reason that we are taking our web building business to iPage. When we discovered consistently that Ipage "live" support was quickly available and courteous as well as informed and helpful we no longer wish to deal with web site hosts that are "e-mail only" support. At this time I am very pleased with Ipage support and program." – PromotionsByWeb.com from Zim, MN @ Feb 16, 2010.
So far so good! "I have been with iPage for 2 weeks and have no concerns whatsoever. I was searching around for web hosting for a while. I didn’t find any bad reviews of ipage through the net. Support with iPage can be a bit slow but they there 24/7 so you don’t have to wait overnight for replies, I usually get replies to my emails in about 45 minutes which is perfect for me. The site builder is awesome for someone who does not have a clue where to start with a website from scratch. " – Marnie Lomax from LA, USA @ Oct 25th, 2009.
