Microsoft
You may easily deploy your apps to Azure App Service if they were written in Visual Studio IDE (typically.NET applications). With a few clicks of the mouse, you may already deploy your application to a remote server using the Visual Studio IDE. As a result of the portal's bulk and complexity, I propose Heroku for less-experienced developers.

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.

Support Rating
Microsoft
We had an issue where we deployed too large of a resource and didn't notice until the bill came through. They were very understanding and saw we weren't utilizing the resources so they issued a generous refund in about 4 hours. Very fast, friendly, and understanding support reps from my experience.

Azure has many data center, their services are more reliable. Azure has way more features than both Linode and DigitalOcean. If someone wants a complete reliable service, he/she must go to Azure instead of Linode and DigitalOcean because even though azure charges more, it is worth the money you pay there.

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.

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • Reduced the deployment time of ASP .NET applications in the company.
  • Gave us an alternative to quickly deploy our applications without granting access to the version control system to a third platform.
