Samoa Nerds / To everyone out there who are loinokg for a hosting company PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE..save yourselves the headaches and money by not signing up with iPage. I’m in big regrets right now being with them. I’m a web designer and to be honest, every time I’m in the middle of designing a web site it never fails to give me this error, Error connecting to database . When you chat with support, they say it will take 2-4 hrs. to resolve issue when it really took them 14hrs. to resolve my issue. And after that, I keep getting the same issue every day. It’s hard to offer your services to your clients when you don’t have a reliable web hosting company. Please save your money and look elsewhere. Thanks to the author of this blog for putting this together. Don’t fall for the top Google pages that offer good reviews for iPage because more than likely they are either employees or people paid to blog and offer good reviews about iPage.
