Never would I recommend this company to anyone. [In my experience] they are total nightmares to deal with and depend on. You can't depend on them at all. Plus, [I feel that] they lie and manipulate the search queries based on lies (they do NOT have radio hosting yet they have ads saying that they do).

I would say iPage is about average. They have WordPress and Weebly for site building along with their own version, but don't offer any others. There is no cPanel which I dislike as I use that quite often with all my other clients. iPage does have a clean user interface and is probably ideal for a small non tech savvy user.

Reliability and Availability

they are only technically available but having someone say hello, i'm here to help, immediately is not real responsive if they actually never address the issue being reported. we don't contact support for the bland greeting, we are actually trying to solve a business process interruption

Performance
A2 Hosting
They are only good if you never update your website and i mean never. Otherwise their main performance diffrentiator is turbo web hosting, their highest shared hosting plan. When caching is working it performs well reducing load times by half, but as soon as you add a new page to the site, the updates don't show up until you clear the cache manually from multiple locations (wordpress a2optimized plugin, cpanel etc..). As they make updates to the turbo hosting A2optimized plugin, they do not test them properly and do not handle customer feedback about them, instead they are in denial and try to immediately convince the customer there is no issue at all! the old developer joke when they don't want to fix feedback: it works on my machine!

iPage is on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of pricing and also features. The lack of a cPanel makes it a less attractive option than almost any other company offering the same services. Also customer service and technical support are extremely frustrating and slow. I continue to use iPage only because clients have selected it for themselves and not because I chose it myself.

I believe they do not care about addressing failures when they occur. Starting out with a working service counts for nothing if you can't maintain it, fix issues when reported, and actually take the extra step to prevent them from happening again. You have to care about quality and customer service, and A2 couldn't care less
