    I found iPage is one of the affordable hosting services as they are just under $2/month but others like bluehost and dreamhost are expensive... If any one of you have been used iPage you may share your views about their service quality they shows they are offering unlimited hosting is it really unlimited?

    Don't go with a provider just because they are cheap. Cheap doesn't mean the best you can get. Don't forget to read their terms of services.
    I won't suggest you to go with iPage or kind companies like them hostgator, bluehost etc.

    Good luck :)

    I've never used iPage, but if you're just starting a website and you want to save money, you can certainly use cheap hosting (although you will need to upgrade once your website gets bigger).

    Their support bot is golden, it sounds almost like a real human. I never managed to get past that bot to someone who could actually help.

    Speed is awesome as well, comparing to turtle.

    Then they charge you premium for the 2nd year (about $120) because they're good, and they know it.

    Ipage is really a good web host it's cheap, fast and reliable with a good customer support, but then its only based on my personal experience :).

    I used iPage about a year back. They were terribly slow. A fresh wordpress site would take ages to load.

    iPage is fine one of my clients have used them for some years. They also provide free hosting but i would not recomment their free hosting which lacks important things like URL rewriting.

    I use them... their support in the days when they started up was really fast and helpful, it`s now very very slow and at times useless or conflicts with another support agent.

    Don`t bother buying into their WP Essentials, it`s no different other than offering easy access to your WP login from control panel, and isn`t any faster as they promise, it`s all rubbish.

    Having many domains is easy and works well, so does their other services.

    Overall, they are good for the price but don`t expect fast responses when you have problems.

    I had a client that used them and they were terrible. The speed was so slow that the site might as well not load at all. When I contacted support, they responded with a script or something because it wasn't even related to my question. I wouldn't recommend them personally, but maybe it was just a fluke occurrence.
