HostPapa Shared Hosting

Hostpapa web hosting is getting popular these days in the webhosting industry. And I should say that with their web host features and prices, it’s not a surprise if they start to get more attention from the market. Their shared hosting plan comes with unlimited space, bandwidth, and add on domains, as well as free domain for each service order, lots of advertising credit bonuses, not to mention their money-back guarantee. And for that lucrative offers, the price is still affordable, $3.95/month (for 3 years contracts).

Customer Review

I have been with HostPapa webhosting for more then a year using their shared web host plan, and so far I’m satisfied with their service. The server is stable and reliable with almost zero downtime. I said ‘almost’ since maybe it was down but I didn’t realize it. The customer support is great in answering my questions, not that I have a problem with their service. Overall, I’m satisfied with this host provider. ~ James, CA

In this Hostpapa review, I will only focus on their shared hsot plan. I write another review for their Reseller package on different page. Now, let’s see what HostPapa shared webhosting plan offers.

Features

HostPapa only offers one shared web host plan with the following features:

Unlimited Space and Bandwidth
Host Unlimited Domains
Free 1 Domain
Cpanel Control Panel
No Setup Fee
99.9% Uptime
30 Days Money Back
Free Site Builder

Prices

HostPapa offers 3 payment plans as follows:

$3.95/month for 3 years contract or $142 for whole 3 years
$4.95/month for 2 years contract or $118 for whole 2 years
$5.95/month for 1 year contract or $71 for whole year

However, just like other companies, HostPapa sometimes also offers various promos and discounts throughout the years so I really suggest you to visit their official site to find out their latest price update as well as recent promo.

Unfortunately, this company doesn’t offer monthly contract that is really convenience for anyone who want to test their web hosting service first. However, with their 30 days money-back guarantee, you will not need to worry about it. You can always ask for refund when you think their hosting service can’t meet your expectation.

One thing that I really like about their payment system is the fact that they accept Paypal. And I believe that this feature alone will attract more customers to this webhosting provider since many people don’t have a credit card or simply don’t like to use their credit card to buy anything online.

Guarantees

As stated above HostPapa offers 1 month money back guarantee as well as 99.9% server up-time guarantee.

Customer Supports

Customer support is the life safer when it comes to web hosting field. No matter how, you will face any problems down the road, and when it comes, you will definitely need a company with decent customer services. HostPapa offers 24/7 phone, live chat, and email supports.

Cons

The only disadvantage of this provider is that they only provide one shared host plan and one reseller plan. Fortunately that their shared package offers unlimited space, bandwidth and unlimited amounts of domains can be hosted, so it will be able to accommodate almost all webhosting needs. However, when the website grows bigger and bigger, most website will probably needs more resources so the option of VPS or even Dedicated server will be really helpful. I hope this company will also provide these options in the near future.

HostPapa Review Conclusion

With their unlimited hosting offers, backed up with 99.9% uptime guarantee as well as the money back guarantee, and also supported by 24/7 customer supports, I can say HostPapa has a quite interesting offers. For anyone with low to mid level website that will not need lots of server resources, this webhosting company can be a good choice for them.
