iPage VS WebHostingPad

iPage Web Hosting is an established web hosting company that has risen to become a world leader in its 12 years of existence. Founded in 1998, iPage has survived the dot-com boom and bust, and is now one of the most renowned web hosting companies in the world serving clients in 150 countries, 1.5 million hosted domains, and over 1 million websites.

WebHostingPad is a newer company founded in 2005, but still an experienced web host with a great plan at a great price. In this comparison between the two it is new vs experienced. Who will take the recommendation? Read our review below to find out.

Pricing

Both companies offer an excellent hosting package at rock bottom industry prices. The iPage hosting plan is only $3.50 per month based on their website promotion. However, we have found that this price has been offered for quite some time and is likely a permanent or near-permanent offer designed to match or beat the competition.

The WebHostingPad hosting plan is advertised at a low $1.99/mo, but that is with a 3 to 5 year pre-paid plan. Their 24 month plan is most similar to iPage at a cost of $2.95/mo.

Products and Services

iPage offers great tools to help their customers get their websites off the ground and making money. They offer free domain registration, free website building tools, and a $250 “marketing suite” filled with credits to use with Google, Yahoo!, and Facebook. iPage also offers a Green certification for their clients’ websites with their 100% Renewable Energy Certificate purchase.

WebHostingPad also offers a free domain registration and free website builder tool. They also offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee

Web Hosting Features

The hosting plans offered by each company come packed with features. Both plans come with unlimited disk space, data transfer, hosted domains, MySQL databases, and email accounts. Both come with free ecommerce solutions and multi-media support. Both come with script installation support, but iPage has an advantage with more language and script options.

Both come with reliable technology with secure, fast, and established data centers. However, WebHostingPad takes an advantage with their client account management choice. They use the leading cPanel control panel which receives top rankings in the industry for its user-friendliness and configurability. iPage offers vDeck control panel, which is a reasonable choice but falls short of the features offered with cPanel.

Customer Service

Both hosting companies offer 24/7/365 tech support via telephone and live chat. WebHostingPad also offers support through Skype as well. Each offers a well-designed support and help center filled with articles, tutorials, and downloads.

Recommendations

Both iPage and WebHostingPad offer incredible plans at absolute rock-bottom prices. The plans are similar in features. However, WebHostingPad takes an advantage with their choice of control panel, lower price, and outstanding support contact options. For their commitment to serve the web hosting industry with the best affordability WebHostingPad receives our recommendation.
