IPOWER Review – Complete Features & Hosting Guide 2017
The hosting company IPOWER has a fairly evenly split target market. Its services are designed for both personal and business users, although the company’s lack of large capacity hosting plans, emphasis on website building tools and low cost suggests that its customer base is made up primarily of small business and personal websites.
The hosting company was established in 2001 and has over 700,000 customers currently. CEO Thomas Gorny is from Poland and operates a private investment company as well. Since 2007, the Endurance International Group has controlled IPOWER. In 2011, its valuation was reported to be $1 billion. Gorny’s name and photo are still prominently displayed on the website, which is unusual for an EIG host. IPOWER is currently a top-recommended hosting option for the inexpensive market in 2017.
For convenient comparison purposes, we have divided up the plans offered by IPOWER into three separate sections.
The company offers three shared hosting plans: Pro Plus, Pro, and Starter. The Starter plan is fairly limited and doesn’t offer a free domain name. The company’s Pro and Pro Plus plans come with one free domain name and three free domain names respectively, with 25 databases, unlimited domain hosting, and various ShopSite capabilities, depending on which plan you are on. The Pro plan, across the board, is much more restricted compared to the Pro Plus plan. This is reflected in the pricing as well. There is a slight decrease in monthly cost with 24 month or 36 month longer contract terms.
Windows Pro Hosting may be selected by Windows users. This inexpensive hosting plan comes with unlimited bandwidth and disk space. In general, any limits are set at a high enough level that small business users will not be inconvenienced. When you sign up for 24 months instead of 12 months, there is a small price reduction.
There are two VPS plans offered by IPOWER, a 60 GB and 20 GB. As you would expect, memory and data transfer are higher on its 60 GB plan. The price again drops when you choose to take a longer contract out.
