iPage VS JustHost

Just when you thought it was safe and easy to choose a web host for your website, new companies come along all the time to make decisions even harder. Sure, it’s always a good choice to stick with the veterans of the web hosting industry like iPage, but companies like JustHost also have joined the industry with great plans and features that are ready to knock out the old-timers from the pedestal. Both iPage and JustHost offer a single web hosting plan that is comparable in price so what features and extras make the choice easy between these giants in the business?

When it comes to price you can’t beat the hosting plan offered by both iPage and JustHost. IPage’s plan is only $3.50/mo while JustHost offers theirs at $3.45/mo. While both of these are advertised as “promo” prices, they have been established for quite a while and are likely permanent prices to beat the constant tough competition.

And both hosts want your business and want to keep it. That is why they both offer an anytime money back guarantee. Customers can feel free to cancel their account with no time limit and receive a refund of the remainder of their paid plan.

Products and Services

IPage offers lots of free promotional extras in their plan. Customers receive $250 in free marketing credits, including advertising credits on Yahoo!, Google, and Facebook. They also provide free web building tools such as a drag & drop builder and website templates. IPage will also register your new domain for free.

JustHost doesn’t just register your domain when you sign up – they keep it registered free for the lifetime of your account. JustHost also offers over $200 in free advertising credits with major search engines and Facebook as well.

Web Hosting Features

The features is where one host stands apart. Both hosts offer plans with unlimited disk space, monthly data transfer, email accounts, hosted domains, and MySQL databases. Both also offer free e-commerce solutions including PayPal support. And both offer lots of multi-media support and a long list of software and scripting support.

However, JustHost offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee to assure their clients that websites are up and running at all hours. Plus, JustHost offers the coveted cPanel control panel for their clients which is the top choice account management software on the market. And JustHost will offer to help transfer your existing domain for free.

Customer Service

Help is just a phone call away for both iPage and JustHost with 24 hour service. IPage also offers 24 hour online chat, while JustHost provides only email and online ticket support but no chat. Both offer a great list of video tutorials and online articles in their knowledgebase.


When it comes to a great web hosting plan at a great price, and filled with great features, both iPage and JustHost is an exceptional choice. However, for the extra features such as a top-rated control panel and an uptime guarantee, JustHost takes our recommendation home.

One Response to “iPage VS JustHost”

  1. current ipage user says:

    Ipage has the slowest customer service response time. Ipage has slowest and worst customer service. My website was down for like 3 days and it took them 3 days to fix the dam small website that barely has any contents. Agents take forever to respond when I need to chat with them.

    All the good reviews they have are PAID MARKETINGS. ipage also has 2 mb upload limit… which makes it impossible to build even a decent website. They also have 60 sec execution time which makes so that even if they increase it to 10 mb upload size limit, you can only upload 2mb in the end with the execution time limit. Oh and default is 2mb size limit… you have to ask and beg them to lift it to 10 mb. It's ridiculous. Do not use ipage hosting service. DO not use their sister company ipower either.
    They are basically same company (ipage and ipower). I paid about 80 bucks and they will only return like 20 something dollars. I am going to wait until my time is up then canceling it. All the savvy programmers and web developers told me to stay away from ipage hosting but it was too late… b/c i already signed up before they gave me the advice…

    Oh and not to mention, my website was down like every other day even with barely having any content on it. (home page with banner and one blog comment…)

    If you are serious about building a website, don’t use ipage nor ipower.
    Their unlimit marketing is obviously a lie. It’s super limited and they cut you off anytime they feel like it. Do not get suckered into their paid marketing review. They pay to websites to have good ratings…

    “ipage and ipower are Verry bad Hosting company!

    Proof with host-tracker:

    Daily uptime:96.33% Downtime:52 min(s) 49 sec(s)
    Daily uptime:98.85% Downtime:12 min(s) 60 sec(s)
    Daily uptime:5.99% Downtime:22 hour(s) 33 min(s)
    Daily uptime:0.00% Downtime:23 hour(s) 59 min(s)

    Still Wanna buy ipage and ipower?”

    “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.” –this msg showed when i went to my website hosted by ipage again…

    My website is down again with ipage hosting…
