iPage VS Reliacloud

iPage VS Reliacloud

Innovation is a key element to success in the web hosting industry. Companies that do not continually strive to improve services and find innovative ways to serve their customer base will not survive. Two companies that have weathered through good times and bad are iPage and Reliacloud.

Disclosure: We are a professional review site that receives compensation from the companies whose products we review. We test each product thoroughly and give high marks to only the very best. We are independently owned and the opinions expressed here are our own.

Reliacloud is part of a parent company that has been providing innovative IT solutions for 15 years. iPage is no spring chicken, either. They started in the web hosting business in 1998 and have continually brought innovative service, features, and extra products to their hosting plan to build a customer base of more than 1 million, and over 1.5 million hosted domains.

Both companies have something of value to offer their customers. Here is a look and comparison:

Pricing

Comparing the price structure of these two web hosts is not as simple as comparing a shared-server hosing plan. iPage offers a single hosting plan for one low price, while Reliacloud’s pricing structure is based on a number of factors, including the number of cloud servers used, hours of use each month, and the operating system platform. iPage’s single plan is as low as $3.50 per month, while the Reliacloud basic cloud structure pricing is around $36.50 per month for a single cloud server.

Products and Services

iPage continues to provide innovative products and services to complement their web hosting focus. They also offer domain registration, a free website builder, and lots of add-on services such as email services, marketing services, and website management tools. iPage also provides free credits worth over $125 for advertising on major search engines and directory listings.

Reliacloud does not offer much more than their mail product, which is reliable cloud server structure hosting.

Web Hosting Features

With the iPage plan you get a boat-load of features including unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, hosted domains, and MySQL databases. iPage offers support for a list of scripts and multi-media. As well, they offer a photo gallery plugin and a choice of e-commerce shopping carts. The plan is guaranteed anytime to all customers, meaning you can cancel your service at any time with no time limit.

The Reliacloud offers a cloud computing structure that makes for the most reliable hosting available. They do this through a network of web servers connected together so there is always plenty of computing power for all website requests at all hours of the day. The structure is flexible so customers can add additional web servers if they need them. Cloud hosting also comes with full administrative access to servers.

Customer Service

As far as customer support, iPage has a full advantage over Reliacloud. iPage offers 24 hour support via telephone, chat, or email, and provides their customers with an extensive online knowledgebase.

Reliacloud can be contacted for support only through online chat. They also provide a limited online knowledgebase and tutorials.

Recommendations

Again, making a recommendation is not a simple as comparing plans between these two companies. While the Reliacloud computing structure may be good for larger businesses with greater hosting needs and reliability, our recommendation goes to iPage for simplicity and a reliable plan that can work for almost any size of business.
