We hope to tackle a few frequently asked questions people often ask when they’re looking to host with iPage. Hopefully our answers can help you decide if iPage is a suitable web host for you.

Does iPage work on a Mac?

Yes, iPage is compatible with Windows and Mac OS. There are some browser and system specifications when using SiteDelux and Drag and Drop Site Builder.

For Windows, make sure:
– You’re using Windows 2000 or higher
– You have a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 600

For Mac, make sure:
– You are operating on OS X 10.4 or higher

In both cases, ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of your browser.

Does iPage charge for its site builder?

When you purchase an iPage Essential hosting plan for just $4.50 a month, you’re given heaps of options to customize your site. Included in the price is the Drag and Drop Site Builder, which is absolutely free to use. You can even choose from a range of templates to use.

Is iPage SEO Friendly?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. It simply means getting the presence of your site noticed by search engines like Yahoo and Google. It can be a long and complicated process, but iPage makes it easier.

After signing up to a plan, you’re given a Marketing Suite to the value of $275 for free. This includes credit to go towards Google Adwords, Yahoo and Facebook. You’re also given a free listing in YellowPages online. This is perfect for small businesses or personal sites to try out online SEO tools for free.

If you’re serious about your business and you have the budget to spend a bit more, you can purchase the SEO Campaign Plan. For $99 a month, you’re provided with SEO experts that will do the writing, linking and reporting for you. This will increase your traffic and potential customers.

Can I have more than one domain?

Yes, simply head to Domain Services and click on Subdomain. With your hosting plan, iPage can direct other domains to the same site, these are called subdomains.

For example, let’s say my main domain name is:
ilovechocolates.com

I might also want to direct these URLs to my websites too:
ilovechocolates.com.au
i-love-chocolates.com
chocolatelovers.org
chocolatelovers.com
ilovechocs. com

That means I would only need to sign up to one account and direct the five subdomains to my website – rather than having to pay and host 6 different websites. It’s a very affordable option and for just $5 a month, I can have up to 5 additional websites.

What’s the activation time for a new iPage account?

Activation with iPage is instant. Some web hosts make you jump through hoops to activate a new account, just as phone or e-mail verifications. With iPage, your account is activated immediately after your payment is received. Once you receive your login details via e-mail, you can begin creating your website instantly.

Does iPage put ads on my site?

Absolutely not. iPage does not put up any unsolicited ads on your site. If you like, take a look at other websites that host with iPage:
