When you look for a web hosting provider, the first thing that you will check is their price. Web hosts with expensive hosting price are most likely turned down especially if they do not have the reputation to support their pricing. On the other hand, an affordable price is not a guarantee of quality service. So it’s best to weigh all factors aside from price before making a choice. In the meantime, let me go you thorugh iPage’s pricing.
iPage Hosting Price
iPage offers one of the lowest hosting price you can see on the market. The usual hosting prices today range from 3$ to $7 per month. iPage, on the other hand, offers an affordable $3.50 per month. And I’m talking about its regular rate for a 12-month hosting plan. If you choose to sign up with iPage’s 2-year or 3-year plan, you can get a huge discount with the price reduced from $3.50 per month to only $2.95 per month. That’s $0.55 savings per month. In a two-year plan that’s equivalent to $13.20 and $19.8 for a three-year plan.
And we’re just starting. Not only can you get discounts depending on the term of your hosting plan. You can also score them by taking advantage of iPage’s promotional prices. iPage usually gets on sale at certain intervals especially during holidays or black Fridays. You can get discounts of as much as 50% of the regular price. Luckily, as of writing, iPage is currently on sale at $1.99 per month for the first three (3) months. This is really appealing considering that you cannot find any web host that will sell their service at less than $2 per month.

iPage Terms of Payment
You need to take note that iPage’s hosting plans are only limited to a 12-month plan, 24-month plan and 36-month plan. Although their prices are stated in terms of “per month”, you cannot sign up with them for less than one year; let’s say for three (3) months only. Their minimum hosting plan is at one year. This means that upon signing up, you will be charged for the whole duration of the 12-month, 24-month, or 36-month plan as one installment. So for a one-year plan with a regular price of $3.50 per month, you will be billed for $42 all in all. And for a two-year plan at $2.95 per month, that’s $70.80; while for a three-year plan its $106.20. This computation does not consider yet iPage’s promotional price of $1.99 per month for the first three (3) months. That means you will save $4.53 for the first three months of a one-year plan, and $2.88 for a two-year or three-year plan. This is a rough calculation of how much your iPage sign up will cost so it’s best to verify the contents of your cart and the total price before checking out. You can always contact iPage’s customer support to clear out your qualms about the whole pricing terms.
