iPage is a full-service domain and web hosting provider targeting smaller businesses that want to jump into the e-commerce arena. It is owned by Endurance International Group, a conglomerate that owns top internet firms like Bluehost, HostGator, and Constant Contact.
iPage Hosting is an Endurance International Group (EIG) brand, originally started in 1998, which now serves over one million websites between two data centers in the U.S. iPage offers a free domain, free SSL, free site builder with tons of different templates, and a special 75% discount on web hosting for IsItWP users.
Finally, for those needing more resources or hosting really big sites, iPage also has dedicated servers you can use – basically, you have a whole server for yourself. However, they do get quite pricey, as dedicated hosting plans start at around $140 per month at iPage.
Often, articles will cover only the bare minimum necessary to help you. The best providers might give you step by step instructions covering how to change your domain name servers at GoDaddy, Tucows, FastDomain and others, for instance; iPage just links you to godaddy.com, tucows.com and so on, and leaves you to figure the rest out for yourself.
Another feature appealing to small business owners is the ability to quickly implement e-commerce add-ons, such as shopping carts and PayPal integration. iPage integrates well with any of the commonly used Content Management Systems (CMS), such as WordPress, Drupal, and Magento.
