31 Aug Dreamhost vs Bluehost 2019
Very poor product and service – I have had #Ipage hosting my photography website now for 2 years. In those two years I have had nothing but troubles relating to the speed of the site. And in fact this was something that the company touted as one of its positives. I have minimized my photos, which are not numerous, and uploaded and configure W3 cache which #Ipage tech support suggests every time I send an email asking them to help. This has happened perhaps 5 times. The result is that it is still slow. I have pleaded for tech to simply get on my site and check for themselves. Nothing. #Ipage is a poor choice… KEVIN
