Gwytherinn’s IPower Review

Gywtherin with IPOWER for 6+ years hosting a small personal site. Recently though, they added a guild website. This wasn’t a problem in itself, but the webhosting was migrating to a new platform and it was difficult to get the guild’s website up and running under the new platform. The support was less than helpful to Gwytherinn and they decided to move on to a new host.

This stuff happens with all hosts, believe me. I have experience with too many to count. Always keep a backup and be ready for these problems that are inevitable. Very few hosts are superb and it’s the rare times like these when most hosts are bound to lose a few customers, especially when upgrading from PHP, MySQL and other core programs to their latest versions that tend to cause compatibility problems with old code.

I’ve been hosting a personal site with ipower for about 6 years and most of the time it’s been fine in terms of pricing and service for what I’ve needed. About a year ago I started a gaming guild site that is also hosted with them which experienced many unexplained outages. (All I can think is a bandwidth problem, even though it displayed garbled statistics that it was both exceeding and hardly using any.)

They migrated the gaming guild’s site to the new platform they’re making everyone go to (vDeck 3) with no problems, but it is horrendously slow and tedious to work with. How this could have been considered better is beyond me.

I found my personal site to be down a few days ago and emailed customer service about the problem when it did not clear up after a few hours. I was looking for information on whether it was a problem on my end or theirs and got back this gem - “you need to check the errors with your Web site by your own. If you do not wish to do so you can signup for a new account.”
