iPage plans

Hostgator is a successful and probably the most successful hosting company, the Hostgator is running the largest reseller hosting program. Because of the advertisement & promotion from resellers, the Hostgator business got fast increasing among all competitors.

In the last year, windows Plesk hosting is also launched with hostgator. The windows hosting service is also following the industry standards with outstanding offers.

Back to iPage, it’s most well know for it’s single hosting solution where we get every support for linux hosting. The advantage with iPage is they put every support under the same hosting control panel – Vdeck. Because there’s only a single hosting plan from iPage, they set very loose user policy. Means if our websites go over the limit from other regular hosting providers it’s still safe. Unless we’re generating very large traffic and caused server down, we can always take less than 2 bucks per month service advantages.

Also there’s upgrade plans available from HG, no matter if you need VPS or dedicated server, all ready! Does that mean HG is better than iPage?
