What is iPage?
If you are familiar with web hosting, then you already know what iPage is. iPage is a web host which is usually found on the list of top 10 web hosting providers published by several web hosting review websites. And in some of them, iPage even sits on the top spot for quality web hosting service. iPage has existed for decades and has hosted millions of websites to date, and thousands more are created each day.
Does iPage really work on iPhone or iPad?
This question can actually mean two things: first, is whether a website hosted on iPage can be viewed and accessed through the web browser of an iPhone or iPad; and second, whether an iPage hosting account owner can access his control panel and manage his website remotely through his iPhone or iPad. We’ll try to answer both questions here.
As a web user – As a web user, the answer is yes, iPage-hosted sites will work on your iPhone or iPad. This is because iPage is not operating system-specific and will work even on an iPad or iPhone that uses iOS. There could be differences in the way the web contents are displayed but all the same the website will still operate normally.
As iPage account owner – From the point of view of iPage users who wish to manage their websites remotely through their mobile phones, the answer is actually no; you cannot access your control panel from an iPhone or iPad. This is because iPage’s admin control panel is designed to work on a full-scale web browser and not through a smartphone web browser. As of writing, there is no mobile version of iPage that is available to its users. In order to access your iPage account, you need to actually login to their website with your account.
Furthermore, iPage uses certain applications like the Weebly Drag & Drop Website Builder and SimpleScripts. These applications are integrated with iPage and are not compatible with iOS. Therefore, they will also not work on your iPhone and iPad due to the limited resources available on these platforms. What iPage offers is a mobile application that allows iPage users to manage their email accounts which are associated with their domain names hosted on iPage. This application allows you check email messages, open your contacts and update your calendars via phone.
