IPOWER has been leading the green web hosting industry ever since it began in 2001. It was one of the first hosts to integrate Google Webmaster Tools directly into their control panel, vDeck, which today offers access to more than 200 tools and services. Today, IPOWER has more than 700,000 customers in more than 100 different countries.
Soon enough, it realized that it needed to do much more than offering the best to their customers, i.e., it needed to give something to the environment too (as web hosting produces a lot of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere through CO2 emissions by the servers). So, it decided to go green. But since generating wind energy isn’t feasible, IPOWER thought of buying it instead. Today, it offsets 100% of its energy by buying Renewable Energy Credits or the RECs generated by wind energy. These prevent 2,660 metric tons of CO2 from being released into our fragile atmosphere. This effort can be counted as an equivalent of not driving 6.1 million miles or planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees. It even provides its customers with “green badges”. These are basically icons that website owners can put on their websites. These icon say that the website is run by a 100% green web hosting service provider. Although its green switch is relatively new, it is still an effort put by them, which many managed dedicated server companies have not yet made.
IPOWER has 2 data centers located in Boston, MA. They are equipped with 24 X 7 security and run on N + 1 power, further enhancing the quality of their services.
IPOWER provides a lot of flexibility in its plans, catering to all kinds of customers, with requirements ranging from personal page to professional business website. The starter plan is priced at $3.95 per month with a 10$ setup fee while the professional plan is available in $5.95 per month and $12.95 per month, both with free setup, the expensive one offering more features. While the starter plan offers 5GB disk space, 250 GB data transfer and domain registration fee of $12.99 per year, the professional plans offer unlimited disk space and data transfer with free domain registration. Some other features in its professional plan are unlimited domains, unlimited email accounts, website builder templates and tools, SQL database, and even a marketing guide, shopping cart features and various advertising credits with top search engines. But one must remember that these prices come with at least 1 year commitment or otherwise the prices are higher. They also offer a Windows based Plan starting at $6.95 per month.
IPOWER provides a 24/7/365 customer support available via email, phone or live chat and also a 30 day money back guarantee where if a customer is unsatisfied with the services, they can get a full refund if reported within 30 days of the purchase.
