iPage vs. Superb Internet Corp

iPage vs. Superb

Website customers have many criteria for choosing and staying with a web hosting company. One of the most important criteria is trust. Trust that the web host’s servers will stay up and running, trust that the service company will stick around, and trust that the web host has plenty of options for growing with a website.

It’s tough to meet all of these expectations. However, two web hosts in this comparison surely fit the bill for making the grade of discerning customers. iPage was founded in 1999 and continues strong today with over 1 million customers and over 1.5 million domains under management. Superb Internet Corp is also a long-term web hosting company who has been in the industry since 1996. With strong technology in world-class data centers, and lots of great features for almost any size web site, both companies are certainly great choices.
