well this is the first host that ive tried... i found this post after it was advertised on this website's main page... i signed up with it and well i gotta tell you its really great!!! its very cheap (7 something per month) and the technical support is fast and great... You get alot as well, such as 200 Megs of space, 16GB Bandwidth, and much more.. I 100% recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good host... Has anyone else tried this host?

The site was kinda hard to navigate through, but they look very professional. They might be a good host, but who knows.

Sounds kinda cheap for a host that would allow UBBs...

I just got a 1 YEAR account with ipowerweb and for the past week have been trying to reach customer service at iPowerWeb to change my MX settings to my email server.

SO, first i call them up and never hear anyone as i am on hold for over 30 minutes. 30 MINUTES! Do they just expect me to hang up because there's probably no one in the office??

SO, i figured phone wasnt the way to go... so i emailed the customer service (twice, i may add) and SINCE THEN (7 days ago), no response... i even put in the email the MX record changes that i needed... NOTHING and my email clients are still in the dark.

Now, they DID have an online form (after i digged and digged on their site to find it) to change the MX address. Yippee i thought. It said it was a free change, yet it wanted credit card information to change it. What the hay, right? So i put it in (6 days ago) and clicked apply... TO THIS DAY.. no changes have occured.

A little educational lesson. An MX record only takes 1 day to take into affect (max: 5days.. depending on the laziness at the web host).

So back to the quote of iPowerWeb..

yeah.. im gonna have to dissagree on that one.. dont get me wrong, the HOSTING is fast and great, but service is two thumbs down. very unproffesional. However, they waste no time in promo as i see their ads everywhere. it seems to me that either im not important, or they have no staff to support me or change the mx records (SIMPLE). Im glad they have a money back guarantee.. i just may take them up on it (hopefully i can get through sleep )

Yes, they responded via phone and made a credit back.
