Thread: Why IPowerWeb?

    Why IPowerWeb?

    I been searching the forums for a while and have noticed that IPowerWeb has been recommended a few times, but when I went to their site, I don't see what is so special about them. Anyone care to enlighten me?

    Hello flush(),

    You probably missed tons of posts "de-recommending" this host. Wade through the search results again and you will have the answer.

    I think the reason they have that many clients is there affiliate program. Every site places a banner on for ipowerweb because they will get paid a lot of money if someone signs up.

    Greetings:

    Something to think about.

    If a restaurant is packed, does that mean the food is good?

    If a resturant is always packed, does that mean the food is good?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I hear IPowerWeb is ok; so the above questions are more related to the 500,000 sites than it is the company.

    dynamic, you more than doubled their customer base just by a click of button.

    Typo on my part; sorry.

    Thank you.

    Hello flush(),

    They may be good for small 2 - 10 static page web sites because they will always remain profitable to them. (overselling - Or in layman terms: Even though they sell GBs of space but only a fraction or even less of it gets used)

    But when it comes to power users (e-commerce sites with heavy traffic and backend databases) Ipowerweb fails the test. because these users (For just $7 / mo) do not remain profitable to them.

    That 250000 figure is just a testimony of the power of affiliate programs and other aggresive advertising.

    Also, generally I agree with mediopia on the ipowerweb issue.

    Truth is, there is nothing special about them, their offers or their services.

    Their success is a testament to their agressive expansion and marketing strategies. Exceptional Service will almost always come second to an average service and a big ad budget.
