Operating System Compatibility

Do you know what operating systems are? Well operating systems are the operating programs that are used in order to maintain sequence and order in a certain piece of technology. There are many operating systems out there, Windows, Mac, Linux, Symbian, etc. Some operating systems are used for desktop computers, laptops, ultra books, notebooks, and the like. There are now even high end operating systems for more portable technologies such as the smart phone and the tablet.

Opening certain websites is not necessarily operating system dependent, but are more on web browser and internet connection dependent. This means that so as long as your operating system has a web browser and you have access to the internet, you will be able to access any iPage operated website. So it doesn’t matter whether you use:

  • Linux
  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Symbian
  • Windows Mobile
  • Windows Phone 8
  • iOS
  • Windows RT

Just make sure you’re connected to the internet, are using a reliable web browser, then you’re sure to access your site.

Smart Phones and Tablets

The smart phone and tablet market has expanded over the years; in fact, one might even say that it is currently at its peak. With the evolution of the hard ware of technological feats such as the smart phone and the tablet, the software must be able to keep up with its pace. This then caused the evolution of the mobile operating systems with new and futuristic features such as voice control, augmented reality, and others.

Some tablets will be able to handle the pressures done on iPage. One tablet known to carry enough software on it is the Surface Pro. The surface pro is a tablet, which doubles as an ultra-book. The technology put in this tablet meets the requirements asked for by certain programs such as SiteDelux and Weebly’s Drag and Drop Website Builder – two very important programs when using iPage.

Although both technologies, the smart phone and the tablet, have the ability to access iPage hosted websites, there still isn’t a smart phone in the market that meet the requirements for website maintenance. And aside from the abovementioned Surface Pro, no other tablet in the market has the ability to do website maintenance.

The iPhone and iPad

The iPhone and the iPad are two technologies that have been dominating the mobile technology market for years now. The most recent iPhone to date is the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c, both of which are still unable to do activities such as website maintenance like on regular desktops. The iPad on the other hand, although has evolved greatly since its release, is as well still unable to do website maintenance. This is because the iPad, although it acts like a mobile computer, does not have the software and hardware power needed by Weebly’s Drag and Drop Website Builder and SiteDelux. But if you only wish to view iPage hosted websites, then both are capable of doing so.

System Prerequisites

There are prerequisites to be met before a certain piece of technology may be able to run programs like Weebly’s Drag and Drop Website Builder and SiteDelux. Listed below are the requirements needed to be met by Windows users and Mac users respectively:

1. These requirements are to be met by Windows users:
