IPower Hosting

Not to be confused with iPowerweb, IPower Hosting offers several different levels of hosting solutions. Let’s take a look at their Starter Plan.

This plan is ideal for personal sites or very small businesses that are looking to set-up their own online presence. 3 gigs of data storage are provided and 50 gigs of data transfer are allowed each month. This should be more than sufficient for even the most popular personal websites, unless you plan to stream rich media files.

One MySQL database and one FTP account are included with this plan, and if you do need more, you can check out several of IPower’s other hosting packages that are still reasonably priced. Support is provided for Perl and CGI scripting as well as Perl. You’ll also have the ability to back-up your entire website with one click, using their online control panel. This will allow you to restore your site in the event that it should go down, or if you have any problems with your data.

Only one email account is provided, but unlimited forwarders and aliases are allowed. Once again, since this plan is aimed at personal users this should not be a problem. Small businesses might need to upgrade to a higher plan if they need more email accounts. Spam filters are provided as well as a webmail client.

WordPress, a very popular blogging tool is provided with this account, as well as a discussion forum, and photo galleries. This makes it easy to get your own personal site up and running in no time at all. You’ll also be able to take advantage of several marketing tutorials that can help you learn how to effectively promote your website once it’s completed.

Online support is offered 24/7, and IPower offers a comprehensive knowledge-base that should be able to walk you through common problems. If you’re still stuck, you can easily submit a support ticket for more assistance.

The monthly price is discounted if you wish to purchase a year’s hosting in advance, or even six months. This is a great hosting plan for personal sites and very economical.
