    Had ipage for some months, there was a $1 a year promotion.

    I realized the sites I had on there were not performing as well as they should. Checking up on them, I found times where there were 6-60 second load times and even down time. Only good thing was their support and price.

    I just bought a bluehost plan and will see how it goes.

    Also transferring websites is a big pain in the a** if like me, you don't know what you're doing. I've learned a lot today about sql and filezilla :p

    I don't like your current choice, BlueHost.

    I hate when hosting provider makes big changes to CPanel, their CPanel is one big pain in the ass. I can suggest Hostgator or Arvixe.

    ipage is a good host if you don't use it for your main sites

    I'm not an user of Bluehost, but if your talking literally about the cpanel branded cPanel (I've seen people call plesk) then there is a reason. I'd say about 2-3 months back there was a major security hole that allowed hackers to break into the hosts and customers cpanel. The update was to fix it.
