In order to run a good online business, web masters should keep their site alive for 24 hours  a day, so choosing a hosting provider who gives a better service with less cost is most important, most  of the startup bloggers or business providers will start with shared hosting, so the question is in shared hosting  who is giving a better service:


Ipage presently utilizes two data centers , located in Bostan , MA area combined, they ran on N+1 power (both AC/DC) with network architecture, ipage by using the routers they connect to BGP, Load balancer  acts as a middle layer of BGP and storage, so customer’s web pages are speeding up even though if it’s in heavy load.
