5years ago this was a good host, now its junk

Review by: MDWEBNECK.COM, from USA
      I don’t recommend this host

I have been with them since 2000 and had no issues with them until they fouled up their server upgrade in 2006 causing myself and friends who I had referred to them to lose access, emails etc

In this past year, a bug on their servers corrupted their generated htaccess files.

This caused my site to be flagged by firefox as a malicious website.

To make a long story short, ipower blamed me for the scripts though I had never loaded any scripts to my site. To prove it, I deleted all of my files leaving THEIR server generated files on board.

These people ****

Review by: James, from Orangevale, California
      I don’t recommend this host

They are over priced, their technical support is great as long as you have an afternoon to wait on the phone. Try leaving them, they wouldn't let go of my site after several calls taking hours. I have been dealing with them for YEARS. trust me on this...

Promo Package beware what you get

Review by: Robert, from Iowa, USA
      I don’t recommend this host

2006 simple features worked well, they changed the control panel, I no longer drop & drag my pics to my pages . You need to be a geek and no ftp & html. I tried all their tutorals nothing explaind how you load (move) it to a specfic page. if i could have figured it out I would have been ok. Tech support was always their, but I always got some one over seas and I could not undestand their instructions with broken english, they would do it for me and informed me that my easy features were not there. Do your home work-- call their tech support -- ask lots questions

Review by: K John, from Atlanta,GA
      I don’t recommend this host

They hold your domain name hostage so they can make charges on your credit card. Their technical support is the worst I've ever seen. Do not waste your money on this company. It is a ripoff. You have been warned. Stay away!!

Review by: Jim Banks, from usa
      I don’t recommend this host

This company keeps sending spam to my computer and phone.

They obviously are real slimeballs as they don't have a method to opt out.

Decent hosting

Review by: Teresa , from Pennsylvania
       I recommend this host

iPower is a huge hosting company, I didn't realize that. They're one of the largest out there, so they have their own datacenter and don't outsource tech support, which is a good thing in most cases. The problem is their features aren't that great and my site has been down a couple times this month.
