No troubles

IPOWER is so easy to use, I had no trouble uploading my site, building it out, and getting it live (all done same day). As far as I know there has been no downtime. The tools available in the control panel are clear and easy to understand.

Cheap hosting...

IPOWER is cheap, high quality hosting service. I am using it for almost a year and I didn't have any problem so far! I contacted support once with a basic question about payment and they answered within 10 minutes. I think I'll never change this hosting service.

Operates easily and inexpensively

I've been using iPOwer for 2 years now for my yoga website, manishayogatime.com. It is a great value, and their tools are easy to use. I would highly recommend ipower for anyone who wants to make their own website, easily and inexpensively.

Free phone support

At one point I called the free phone support and talked to a real human English speaking person who solved my problem quickly. I was impressed! I'll stick with these guys for a while.
