iPowerWeb Hosting Review
- Written by Jason Canon
Operating since 1998 iPowerWeb today powers over 700,000 web sites from four cutting-edge technology Internet data centers. One of the shining stars of Netcraft's top performance web sites iPowerWeb delivers top speeds reliably.cu
Pricing, Value and Reliability:
iPowerWeb is priced to compete with bargain-basement web hosting services. However, iPowerWeb data centers are connected to the Internet backbone using Optical Character (OC)-48/192 services delivering speeds of up to 2.5 G b/s and 9.6 G b/s respectively. The data centers are geographically and individually protected from power failures, physical compromise, and system outages by redundancy and multi-layer security. iPowerWeb technology is on par with that being used on Internet2 next-generation research networks.
Customer service is available via toll-free phone support, live-chat, and email. Standing behind all of their Internet2 quality technology is over 250 employees so you can rest assured that when you need assistance at 2:00 am you will actually get a real support technician rather than a recording.

Try a traceroute to iPowerWeb from your location to view the network connections and transit times.
iPowerWeb offers a wide-range of application support capabilities as part of their regular web hosting service. Online surveys, blogs, server-side programming languages, content plug-ins, electronic commerce, and marketing and promotion capabilities, to name only a few, are all included. New domain name registration is free when you establish a one-year web hosting account. New account setups and activation is rapid. Best recommended for Unix.
None really. Skilled webmasters can reap the most benefits from iPowerWeb's technology and business model. Novice customers that require delicate hand-holding may be better served by selecting a provider with less state-of-the-art technology but stronger customer support.
