iPage on Apple Devices
Apple’s iPhone and iPad are some of the world’s largest and most popular gadgets today. Technology has evolved over the years and with mobile Internet, we can go online at any given time, on any device.
Several years ago, you can only go online if you have a dial-up Internet and you can only browse the Web if you’re in front of a computer. Today, however, you can go online wherever you are, as long as you have access to the Internet.
The Internet is also changing at an incredibly fast pace, and many iPage account holders are concerned whether or not their hosted sites support iPhone and iPad.

Viewing iPage on iPhone and iPad
Websites hosted by iPage as the same as other websites on the Internet. Anyone can view these sites the same way one views other sites that are hosted by other web hosting providers. You can do this as long as you have the following:
• Available internet connection
• Any gadget that can connect to the internet
• Location that does not restrict internet use.
If you’re a web developer, however, things might be a little more challenging. You may even be at a disadvantage since you cannot edit your site via iPhone or iPad. In fact, there are no web hosting providers out there that allow you to do this.
Remember that building a website will require a lot of space and memory, and these are not readily supported by smartphones and tablets. That said, you still need a computer to get the job done right.
Website Building with iPage
iPage uses the Weebly Drag and Drop Website Builder, as well as the SimpleScripts one-click installer for building websites. These applications are not compatible with iOS so you have to work on a computer to be able to fully utilize these features.
iPage also offers goMobi, allowing you to make your website more mobile-friendly.
You can also manage your email accounts and update your contacts. Check out this tutorial for email client setup on Apple devices. This will require you to use iTunes. You only need to have an Internet connection and your website details can be checked using a portable device.
iPage and Mac OS
There is absolutely no problem with iPage running on Mac OS or on any operating system for that matter. You can simply log in to your iPage account and use the services that you want. You can also browse other iPage-hosted websites. iPage is not dependent on any OS so you don’t have to worry about anything at all.
iPage comes with a lot of berks and benefits, making it a popular choice among businesses and private individuals alike. However, it also comes with a few limitations. Here are some of them:
- iPage websites can be accessed using iOS and they can be viewed just fine.
- iPage is complementary to any gadget that can view websites.
- iPage’s mobile application can be used to check emails and update the calendar.
- iPage websites cannot be edited using a tablet or smartphone because of the memory and space requirement.
- iOS is not compatible with the vDeck control panel used by iPage.
- iPhone and iPad are both limited because of the nature of their platform.
