IPOWER Domain names for $2.95 Limit 50 domain names per customer at special $2.95 pricing. Pricing valid for first year only. Domains will renew at $8.25 at time of renewal, unless volume pricing arrangements have been made. Plus, a little birdie told me that if you follow through to the end of the shopping process, even before you actually purchase, you will be pleasantly surprised with the price. :-) (please do this at your own risk)

    iPowerWeb is the worst registrar I’ve ever seen. I have tried to register two domain names after I heard this promotion, but they couldn’t do the registration for two days. After waited that long I wrote to their support, but it also takes another day them to answer :)

    I am trying RegisterFly at the moment, looks nice (except the 1 gb webserver bulls*it).

    Why not just use Yahoo? $2.99 isn’t that much more than $2.95, and it’s not just for the first year…

    I had problems with IPowerweb also. There’s no forwarding tool. If you want to foward the domain to another website that you own, you can’t do it. I eventually moved the domain to GoDaddy. It’s not worth the trouble.

    I was with IPowerweb for a couple of years — moving my registration and hosting last year was such a hassle that the website I was doing that for was down for almost a week. Every step of the way, I kept being told, “send an email to confirm you want us to do this.” I think I had to sent about fifteen emails saying, “Yes, I want to do this. I’ve told you that how many times now?”

    Bad customer service, not great pricing — I went to GoDaddy and ended up much happier. Used them when I set up my new domain and website and haven’t had any trouble.

    There are many many many reports of ipowerweb being an awful web host, and domain registrar. I recommend all of you use search at webhostingtalk.com for threads about ipowerweb not being good.

    to Rich Schmidt;
    Yahoo! offer is only for new customers that buys other solution packages, and if you are not interested in these solutions other than domains, they keep you with the price of $2.95 till the end of purchase, and than they tell you that you have to pay $9.5 if else :)

    I’ve had good luck with Ipower hosting, but I don’t think it’s that great for people who don’t know what they’re doing. Their customer service is lacking. Their domain registration, on the other hand, STINKS! I ended up with my site down for days while I paid dotster $100 to get my site back up after it had gone past retrieval. Never again.

    I have to agree with Eva on every point but her last two sentences :)

    I’ve been with iPower(Web) for almost a year and a half. There were a couple of minor problems, but I’ve had no trouble with my site being unavailable for a period of time. Like most hosts, it would be nice if they were a little more transparent on what they’re planning on doing (updates to available software and the like).

    I’ve got two domains registered with them, because I got one with the space and because the other was simple to setup. The other’s I’ve got with GoDaddy. GoDaddy certainly has the domain flexibility that iPower(Web) doesn’t have.

    Do yourself a favour and pay a little more for a registrar that takes you seriously, has consistent pricing, and gives you complete control over your domain.

    Run away, far away, from iPowerWeb. I cannot wait until December when my hosting runs out and I can switch to another host. Domains as well – what a nightmare. Downtimes, sudden, unexplained gibberish folders and files showing up in my directories, constant warnings that I’ve exceeded my quota (I’m at LESS than 1% of the quota I paid for!) and warnings that they will delete my files if I don’t get back under… sheesh. They can afford to sell domains for 3 bucks because there’s no staff… just a hamster named Earl working the wheel in a dark office.

    Now I’m going to go back up my databases because the last time I spoke publicly about this host, they “lost” my site for two days. :-(

    On the outside, they look to offer good value with a good package, and initially they come up with the goods. But once you are going problems start to come up, and customer support is not proactive in any sense of the word. Here’s what happened to me, we registered a domain name and retained ipower’s web hosting, the domain was not too active – we used it for email and FTP mainly, but after a year we renewed it, and paid Ipower our fees for another year. Then we had email problems, but no response from ipower support. After a week we found by chance that our domain name was released and free in the market place i.e. ipower did not renew our domain registration. Now how would you feel if this happened to your domain name, which you put a lot of time, expense and effort into, and it suddenly became available and someone else took it? Well ipower said sorry and offered to refund a partial of the fees to us; later they offered the full amount, but no real feedback or explanation as to why this happened. I’m not sure they really cared, perhaps it happens a lot. Do a search “ipower + problems”and you will find a lot of similar stories, worse than mine. I was lucky and caught it and re-registered with a more reputable company

    I have not had the web hosting plan for a full month and decided to cancel last week. Customer service is a BIG JOKE! If you lose a password it takes 3-5 DAYS for them to email a response. THEY HAVE ACCESS TO ALL YOUR PASSWORDS FOR YOUR EMAIL AND HOSTING ACCOUNTS! IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE IT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THEIR BILLING DEPARTMENT?!

    If you have a question about your service they ask for your password which I think is tacky because they already have them in front of them to verify. I like the privacy of having and being able to change my passwords whenever I feel like it. Not when their “billing” department feels like responding.

    I purchased a few domain names and could not receive emails at those accounts but could send emails from them. Tech support was oblivious to how this was happening and did not know how it should be fixed so they suggested that I use Outlook to solve the problem.

    Billing department was often rude and transfer you in the middle of explaining a small problem. Outdated open source ecommerce and blogs. Links did not work.

    Just dont waste your time. Most times you are on hold for 15 minutes+ for a live chat session so you can imagine what calling hold times are like. I would not recommend doing business with them until they are able to support the workload. Hire more knowledgable experts. Perhaps then and only then will they be OK.
