Ease of Use and Features

The control panel used by iPage is pretty easy to use. There are no tabs to click between; instead, everything is divided into sections from top to bottom. The company offers three website building options. The first is the template-based CM4AII, which is fairly easy to use and can make up to six pages. The second one is a drag and drop site builder by Weebly, and the third option offered by the control panel is goMobi, which allows you to create the perfect mobile site.

We were particularly interested in the drag and drop builder since it’s precisely this type of website builders that is the most interesting one to the majority of customers, as well as our readers. This is a great, simple, convenient website builder that everyone can use.

Every customer that signs up for hosting services by iPage will receive these website builder tools. As for the features, in addition to the three website building tools, you will also get a plethora of themes and templates to choose from, easy setup wizards, multiple e-mails, content management systems like Joomla!, Mambo, Drupal and, of course, WordPress, blogs, forum tools, and photo galleries. The plans also include some free ad credits, eCommerce tools and solutions, file manager, FTP manager, unlimited storage space, scalable bandwidth, unlimited MySQL databases, customizable e-mail, vDeck control panel, non-stop monitoring, visitor and traffic stats and reports, and more. iPage is very feature-rich, which is one of the reasons they made it to our list of the best website builders.

Interface and Design Flexibility

As we already mentioned in this iPage review, the control panel itself is pretty easy to use, and the same goes for the drag and drop builder. To create your website, all you need to do is drag the pieces of content or multimedia across the website and simply drop them in the desired place. You can choose from a wide selection of very attractive and contemporary-looking themes, which are also highly customizable. If you wish, you can add contact forms, polls, slideshows, social media links, maps, galleries, music, anything you like.

Support and Tutorials

iPage has an online help center with a knowledge base, tutorials, video instructions, and other resources. If you don’t find your answers there, you can choose between phone support and chat support, both of which are available 24/7. There’s also a ticketing system. The company states their average response times are one minute or less, and from what we saw when we contacted the support staff for the purposes of this iPage review, they seem to deliver on that promise. The staff on the phone was polite and helpful. The staff member we contacted through live chat was also friendly and nice and even though he himself couldn’t solve our issue, he directed us to an article in the knowledge base which was very helpful.

Pricing

As we already mentioned, the iPage website builder is available only through hosting packages, so we can’t really talk about the price of the builder itself. The hosting plans, all of which come with the builder, range from $1.99 per month for regular shared hosting with a domain name, free eCommerce store, and unlimited disk space and e-mail, to $19.99 per month for VPS, and $119.99 per month for dedicated hosting.

Bottom Line

iPage is ideal for those users who are not just looking for a website builder but also for a hosting service. The control panel includes not one but three site building options, mobile website included, and the features are really excellent. There are some great marketing tools, eCommerce tools come for free, and let’s not forget about unlimited disk space and e-mails. The builder is easy to use and includes plenty of really attractive templates. Customer support is very comprehensive, whether we’re talking about the support page with FAQs and tutorials or live help available through e-mail, chat, and support ticket.

    Ok, this is very cheap! But it also very much works. They offer a few levels of protection, which is not that often seen on other website builders. I tested this, and really enjoyed the experience, now I have a website that I can manage on my own and it looks great.

    I had to try this because it has 30 day money back guarantee, so I had nothing to lose. Turns out, I didn’t want my money back because I’m so happy with the service. Marketing tools are a complete win as well, they work like a charm.

    I must say that the customer support service works flawlessly. Everything was so easy to set up, and what I didn’t know, I asked them, and they were very patient with my many question. This is of the many reasons I like Istore, but it is very important to note.

    I appreciate that I have full freedom to come up with everything on my own, and it’s really affordable. Unlimited disk space and free domain registration are a great advantage that actually brought me to this website builder. And for everything you don’t know, you can use the tutorials. Win-win!
