Pricing

SiteCloud web hosting offers customers a variety of three different available types of hosting plans: StormSite Cloud Hosting, Cloud VPS Hosting, and Reseller Hosting. StormSite Cloud Hosting offers customers free setup and a lifetime domain for $$4.95 per month. The Cloud VPS Hosting package ranges from $29.00 to $99.00 per month, and the Reseller Hosting plan $19.00 to $99.00 per month.

In comparison iPage, however, only offers the basic Essential Plan for an affordable price of $4.50 per month. Although the iPage web hosting plan fits any budget, SiteCloud offers an array of packages providing customers diverse web hosting services and features, whether needing to set-up a personal website or maintain an e-commerce online venture.

Products and Services

A definitive plus is that SiteCloud and iPage are both considered green eco-friendly energy-efficient web host providers. However, when you look at variety, SiteCloud really steps up. In addition to a basic hosting package, SiteCloud offers cloud VPS and Reseller hosting. The VPS plan includes hardware node features and for an additional fee of $10 per month, access to the latest version of cPanel. The Reseller Hosting package ranges from the basic starter Tier 1 plan at $19.00/month with 25GB Cloud Storage, 250GB bandwidth, free cPanel accounts and migrations to the more expensive huge reseller package which includes the same features as the basic plan, upgraded to 125GB Cloud Storage and 1,200GB bandwidth.

iPage’s Essential Plan offers customers unlimited disk space and bandwidth, security suite, Google Control Panel, and an $105 affiliate payout for each new referral. While SiteCloud offers more packages and types of web hosting, the provider only offers unlimited features in its basic plan; unlike iPage which offers a single package but the majority of the services are free or included in the affordable price of $4.50 per month, plus $125 in free marketing credits.

Web Hosting Features

Although iPage offers customers only a single web hosting package, in comparison to the several plans provided by SiteCloud, depending on your web hosting needs, iPage may prove to be the better deal. iPage’s Essential Plan includes unlimited bandwidth, disk space, domain hosting, free lifetime domain, site building tools, online store, and Google, Facebook, and Yahoo! Marketing credits as well as anytime money-back guarantee. SiteCloud’s popular StormSite Cloud Hosting Plan also offers unlimited data storage, bandwidth, sub-domains, add-ons, and e-mail accounts; however plans are limited to a 30-day money back guarantee.

SiteCloud also offers a FAQ section and limited phone support, while iPage offers user guides and on average answers support calls within two minutes. Although both web host providers excel when it comes to customer service, iPage was awarded Best Support June 2010.

Recommendations

After a thorough review of both SiteCloud and iPage, our recommended choice is iPage. The web host provider offers a single package loaded with unlimited features at an extremely affordable price when compared to SiteCloud.
