Everyone’s talking about the web hosting industry’s latest arrival, WebHostingHub – including us! Named Top New Host for 2012, we love how simple and affordable they make it to get up and running online. But how does it compare with iPage, one of the most easy-to-use and least expensive web hosting options around?


Let’s compare:


Features and services:
Both companies offer web hosting packages that come loaded with features such as a free domain, unlimited bandwidth and disk space, site building tools, a security suite, e-commerce capabilities and more. Both WebHostingHub and iPage provide quality North American-based customer service by phone and live chat, allowing you to get live help whenever needed.


When it comes to price, iPage wins with plans that cost $3.50 per month, regardless how long of a contract you choose. If you commit to a 36-month contract with WebHostingHub, you can get started for as little as 3.95 per month. However shorter contract commitments are more expensive. That being said, WebHostingHub does not charge for web migration, meaning if you are moving your website from one hosting service to another, it could prove to be less expensive.


Ease of use:
WebHostingHub provides cPanel, the industry standard in web hosting control panels, to manage and monitor your site. This program is easy-to-use and easy to learn, enabling you to do everything from check traffic statistics to add new e-mail accounts all from the same control panel. iPage uses vDeck, which is a little more complex, but equally (if not more) robust. vDeck includes a wide variety of e-commerce solutions, as well as search engine optimization and submission services that make web promotion easy.


Green technology:
One of the unique aspects of iPage is that it is a web hosting company that strives not only for low prices, but also low impact on the environment. By using wind energy and renewable energy credits, iPage is able to lay claim to entirely green energy power.


WebHostingHub is backed by a 90-day full money back guarantee – it’s one of the best guarantees in the industry. If at any point during your three months of service you decide that hosting service isn’t for you, they will give you a complete refund. iPage offers an anytime money-back guarantee. This means that within 30 days, a full refund can be requested. After 30 days, a request can be made anytime for the outstanding balance of your contract term.


WebHostingHub and iPage are both attractive and affordable web hosting options. Great prices and easy-to-use features are at the heart of each company’s’ success. Regardless of which service you choose, we think you’ll find they both have what it takes to build a quality website for a low monthly price.
