iPage vDeck Control Panel Overview
This is a recently screenshot taken from iPage’s control panel. If you are used to cPanel, well iPage’s vDeck control panel looks very similar to it. If you have no experience managing a hosting account, I can tell is very simple to use and straightforward. You have access to all necessary tools and software to setup your website, create and manage your emails, upload files or check visitor statistics. Obviously there is much more to it: manage your billing, renew your account, purchase and manage domains and much more.
If you want to contact the support through email, you can do it from the control panel directly.
Overall iPage is a reliable and trustworthy hosting provider. You should note, though, that the Essential Plan is only suitable for small business websites. You can always upgrade your plan to VPS if your website needs more server resources, but keep in mind that shared hosting is not for every type of website. With that in mind, if you are looking to create and host your small website on a budget hosting plan, iPage is the way to go.
