iPowerWeb continues to stake their claim as the web’s number one hosting service provider. That being said, while they host a staggering 700,000 domains, they have not kept up with the competition in terms of services provided at less cost. iPowerWeb has boosted its capabilities to 1,500 GB of disk space and 15,000 GB of bandwidth, but the $4.95 per month price tag puts them higher than many others who offer comparable service.

Reliability (4/5)

★★★★☆

In order to provide dependable service, iPowerWeb has four high-tech data centers. The facility uses top of the line equipment including the latest BPG, which has the ability to provide multiple bandwidth and the fastest network speed, ensuring a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Further protection of customers’ websites includes fire detection and suppression systems at iPowerWeb’s data centers, 24/7 onsite technicians, security entrances, and a backup power generator.

Price Value (4/5)

★★★★☆

For what iPowerWeb has to offer, the value for the price is good. However, many other companies are offering the same services and even more features at an even lower price. With their industry standard offerings and enormous customer base, it begs the question of why their prices also have not followed along with the competition.

Control Panel (5/5)

★★★★★

Like many other web hosting companies, iPowerWeb offers their clients 24/7 telephone support, e-mail, and live chat. FAQ’s add to support options, and good customer support is what keeps a business from losing clients. If iPowerWeb’s numbers are any indication, they are certainly doing something right. Top notch customer support ensures the retention of current customers and builds a reputation that attracts new ones.

Customer Support (5/5)

★★★★★

Like many web hosting companies these days, IpowerWeb offers their clientele 24/7/365 phone support, email, FAQs, and live chat. Service and support is what keeps a company from losing customers, and their reputation will help them gain more. If their numbers are any indication, the folks at IpowerWeb are doing something right.

Overall Value (4/5)

★★★★☆

iPowerWeb provides friendly customer service and reliable, powerful web hosting abilities. They are quickly dropping down in ranking on the top 10 list though, mainly due to price and a control panel others may be unfamiliar with. While the competition continues to increase disk size and bandwidth at reduced prices, iPowerWeb is going to have to eventually come in line with them. Otherwise they will not continue to grow, and could possibly risk losing some of their existing customers to web hosting companies that offer the same level of service for one or two dollars less each month.

iPowerWeb offers 1,500 GB of disk space, 15,000 GB of bandwidth, a free domain, and $80 in advertising credits when you sign on to their network that is over 700,000 domains strong!
