iPage Adds New Website Builder and Control Panel



Here’s some exciting news from iPage! They have recently released both a new user control panel and an improved website builder. iPage has always been one of our recommended web hosts for beginners. And with these latest developments, they’ve signaled that they’re more than ready to compete with website builder companies like Wix and SquareSpace.

iPage New Control Panel


The new iPage control panel isn’t vastly different from the previous one. The layout has been simplified a bit with fewer items cluttered together—making things easier to locate. If you like a graphical interface, you’ll find the control panel very easy to use. The bigger news is the inclusion of an improved website builder which we’ll look at next.

iPage Website Builder

iPage has always included website builders to simplify the process for their customers. The latest enhanced website builder is much improved, and definitely on par with other website building companies. The process is very simple and you are guided all the way. You first choose your domain, and then you pick your website template. There is a nice selection to choose from, and all of the major popular categories are included.

Here’s a sample of some of the beauty and fashion templates:

You can actually preview a template to see exactly how it will look.

Most of the templates look really good. Keep in mind that the websites that are created consist of your basic pages (Home, About, Services, Gallery, and Contact). In other words, the iPage website builder is great if you need a basic site or an online brochure type of site. If you need a more complex website, you’ll need to pay extra for the Professional or Business plan—similar to other website building companies.

Here is the comparison of iPage website builder plans:

If you’re looking to create a basic website that doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, then I’d recommend considering an iPage hosting plan and their website builder. If you prefer a website builder but need more functionality, there are other options that are more economical that you might want to explore (see Website Builders).
