Unfortunately, iPage actually does NOT offer monthly payment plans. Instead, they require payment to be made on an annual basis. This is something that many users have complained about due to the fact that iPage does not make this fact clear during registration and set up.
While you should be well aware that iPage’s use of the word ‘monthly’ does not mean that you will be paying a monthly fee, the annual prices that they offer are very difficult to compete with. iPage is known for offering some of the cheapest plans in the industry, with an initial plan that starts as low as $2.95/month.
A lot of iPage’s promotional offers and discounts say that you will receive a significant discount on the first three months of the contract in order to try things out. Even in these cases, however, you will still be paying the full annual fee (with the first three months discounted).
As you may know, iPage also offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all of their plans. Their claim is that, if you call and notify them within the first 30 days of your contract, they will refund you the full price of your plan. It should be noted, however, that $15 will be kept in exchange for you keeping the rights to your domain name.
