Coupon codes for iPage saved me a ridiculous percentage off the normal hosting expenses. I have used iPage personally to host one of my sites. Last time I saved over 75%. I used the following promo discounts.

My friend Pavlos and I are using iPage to host two of our sites (one being LifetoLiveit.com) and we have been very satisfied with them. Here is why we decided to use iPage:
iPage discount codes are available in coupon sites all year around. This is another thing I like.
Here are a few other things to keep in mind if you are thinking of hosting your site on iPage.
Control Panel is Different
The control panel is different than the typical one I have seen in other hosts (i.e JustHost, Bluehost, Godaddy etc). If you are used to the common cPanel, then the first time you visit iPage control panel, it may take a few minutes to find where each functionality is located. But it’s definitely user friendly.
Renewal Prices Are Much Higher
Having said that, I do find a few things I don’t like that much. iPage is very cheap only for the initial term. So, after your 1-, 2- or 3-year plan is over, the rate goes from $1.89 up to $8.49 a month for another 2-year service. Yikes! So, if you are planning to host your site on iPage for a few years and take advantage of their “initial term” low prices, buy the 3-year plan right off the bat. This will lock the low monthly price for 36 months.
Purchase May Be Suspended
One thing I didn’t like at first is that as soon as I opened my account and paid through Paypal for web hosting and domain registration, my purchase was suspended for security reasons. I have had the same experience with other hosting companies, like MyDomain.com. This temporary suspension may occur because the system recognizes that I am placing the order from overseas (a country in Europe in that case) so… perhaps they want to avoid fraud? Here is the message I got:
However, the suspension was waived in less than 30 minutes, and I received the welcome email with all the details of my account. I also contacted live chat support and they confirmed everything was set up and ready to go.
John Carlstrom has published a great review of iPage. Have a look:
Below, I have posted the conversation my friend Pavlos had with a customer rep from iPage. Pavlos had just bought a hosting package and through the cPanel he had downloaded WordPress in order to build his brand new site. He created a few pages (like “contact” “policy” etc,) and he noticed the pages would not open at all. At this point he started chatting with Godson from the Live Chat Help of iPage.
Godson D: Hi Pavlos, I apologize for the wait time. My name is Godson, how are you today?
Pavlos: Hello, Godson, I am o.k, just out of curiosity: what country I am connected to now?
Godson D: Our headquarters are in Burlington, MA.
Godson D: USA.
Pavlos: o.k I am writing from Greece….I am going on with my question…can you check from where you are if I have downloaded WordPress correctly because two (2) pages I have created do not open at all. Is there a problem with the server or something?
Godson D: Could you please let me know with the URL of the page where you are experiencing the issue?
Pavlos: of course…give me second! One of the two pages is: http://www.lifetoliveit.com/contact/ but basically nothing opens even the existing pages like “”Hello World”…
Godson D: I completely understand your concern and would be more than happy to look into your issue right away.To protect your account from unauthorized changes, can you please verify for me the answer to the Security Question: What city were you born in?
Godson D: Thank you for the authentication. May I place you on hold while I review your account and get back to you within 3 to 4 minutes? Pavlos: o.k I am waiting! …Look Godson, It seems to be working now!
Godson D: Thank you for holding. Resolved your issue. Corrected the permalinks and resolved the issue.
Pavlos: can I ask? was it my fault? What exactly was wrong?
Godson D: You can refer more information about permalinks at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks I have added permalink code to .htaccess file and resolved the issue.
Pavlos: sorry to insist…did I forget to add this OR it was beyond my control?
Godson D: Pavlos, you need to manage WordPress from your end. You can refer WordPress help forum or contact WordPress support for more information about WordPress issue and set up. You will able to edit .htaccess file using FTP and FileManager.
Pavlos: o.k I have written this down. Thank you for your help, Godson!
Godson D: You’re welcome! Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
Pavlos: No, this is it. You solved the problem. Thank you.
