iPowerWeb was founded in 1998 and is currently serving over 700,000 customers worldwide! With over a half a million webmasters and professionals already trusting their service, they must be doing some right, right?
Afforable & Value for Money!: They offer a very attractive hosting plan, the Business Pro plan. It is an ecommerce ready plan for only $7.95/month! (current promo: $4.95/month) You get 15GB of storage and 15000GB of bandwidth. If you pre-pay yearly, you also get a free domain name. You also get a FREE marketing package which includes $75 Google Adwords and Yahoo Ad credits! This alone is worth it to give them a go.
Fast Setup: Your account will be set up the same day as long as you provide valid credit card information. Double-check your credit card information! If everything is correct, your account will be set up by one of their staff and you will receive an important email with all of your account information. Keep it safe and do not delete it.
Good Customer Support: Comparable to Hostgator, iPowerWeb has a very good and responsive email support system. Every email sent out will receive a reply. They will provide you with any information you need to help you get started with your account. I have sent them multiple email requests in a short period (just to annoy them), asking them everything from what software version they run to setting up sub-domains. I was satisfied with their speedy replies and knowledge.
KnowledgeBase - They have a large searchable database of answers to many common questions. Unlike a normal FAQ style with pages of questions and answers, you can find anwers to questions by typing some simple keywords and the search will return the relevant questions and answers! I have used it to find information on setting up sub-domains and domain pointers. Very accurate and relevant results.
Useful Tutorials - iPowerWeb has over 100 tutorials for their customers'. You can find walkthroughs and flash videos on common tasks and various software configurations.
Free Domain - If you do not have a domain yet, order their service for one year and you can get a new domain of your choice registered for free. If you already own a domain name, you can transfer it to iPowerWeb and have your registration period extended for another year for free.
vDeck Control Panel - iPowerWeb develops and uses its own control panel software - vDeck. It has been using CPanel for the last few years. New customers will now be placed on servers using the new vDeck. We find it very powerful and easy to use. If you know how to use IE to get to this webpage, Im so sure you will master vDeck in no time.

top notch service by Declan
signing up with ipowerweb is the best decision I made since I got into creating websites. They have been so helpful, guiding me through everything from setting up my account to installing scripts, uploading my sites, submitting my sites to search engines, and giving me a free domain name for life.
Just because they are cheap doesn’t mean they don’t know how to do business, their support guys are smart, and their package offers enough even for medium-sized businesses.
dont buy dont buy - they suck by ipowerweb sucks
extremely poor services, utterly bad client support, non-existent customer service.. keep looking
good by Benjamin
I was with GoDaddy before and even though they have a lot of hype, their support is actually very poor.
ipowerweb has been great for me, they include alot of little extras that will become useful to you one day. If your looking for a good host, consider them.
superior service by Dylan
Jim was my tech support person. He was incredibly knowledgeable and solved my problem promptly. He was very friendly and professional.
Normally I don't encounter this level of service at a "budget" hosting company like this. This was superior service.
