    Absolutely the worst webhost I have ever experienced. My website was unavailable for a lot of the time, and when it was available it loaded at a snail’s pace. Customer support was useless, and was a complete waste of time. Avoid this host!

    I am cancel my account with you today, And I am not happy with way your tech support service. SERVERS ARE DOWN ALL THE TIME. MY SITE IS GETTING A BAD REPUTATION AND LOSING CUSTOMERS BECAUSE THE TECH SUPPORT IS THE WORST I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH. CURRENTLY MOVING TO ANOTHER PROVIDER AND RESEARCHING TO FIND ONE WITH LESS DOWNTIME AND BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE. If you are thinking of using mysql databases etc with I power forget it. The html pages work fine but anything involving a database is absolutely useless. My site as well as literally TONS of others have the same complaint day in and day out of how slow the websites are. A lot of times they don’t even display. If you just have a simple static html page, it’s fine. If you use a database forget it. They are terrible. Support takes 20-30 minutes to pick up, dont bother with email support. Vdeck console works okay, but subdomain manager is misconfigured. Forget getting Gpg to work. The technical support team has

    Support takes 20-30 minutes to pick up, dont bother with email support. Vdeck console works okay, but subdomain manager is misconfigured. Forget getting Gpg to work. The technical support team has no idea how it works(and it’s broken server-side). In short, the $1-2 you save a month by going with this terrible company is not worth it! Buyer Beware!

    This host was once quite acceptable by lately they have become useless. I have been hosted with them for 4 years and the tech support they have given me in the last 6 weeks is appalling, my site was down for 4 weeks and it took them that long to discover what was causing the problem, after giving 3 or 4 different reasons for the problem, my email is still not working and they are not even responding to my complaints, DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THIS COMPANY.

    If you don’t need your domain for business purposes, these guys are OK. I was warned a while ago by my friend to try to cancel my account but was complacent until the site suffered major instabilties in the past few months. Database tables crashing, e-mails getting bounced back often. I’d probably give a better rating if they were helpful in letting me transfer my domain, not sabatoging every step and giving me the run around. If you have a domain name you like don’t count on being able to transfer it somewhere else. Luckily my credit card # is defunct so they can’t charge me another year, a practice I’ve heard they try to keep – screw around with you until your renewal date then bill you for another year. NEVER have I had so much difficulty in trying to cancel any kind of service. If they think this is a good way to keep customers, karma bites you in the arse.

    I don’t know what some of you people are talking about. I’ve been a customer with Ipower for years now. All I’ve got from ipower is trust and dedication! I call support and they speak English and understand my questions, my web site is hardly to NEVER do

    Terrible tech support, email goes down regularly, changes to systems made without informing users (eg control panel passwords changed without notifying us), overloaded shared servers, overloaded VPS.
