Hostpapa Web Hosting Review

About Hostpapa and Recommendation

hostpapa imageHostPapa is a Canadian company and focuses on green energy. What I learnt about what HostPapa meant by green web hosting which sounded like a really good idea and is a really good reason to support them. Essentially what they have done is conducted an independent environmental impact assessment which details exactly how much energy they use in operating and then purchase green energy tags from a certified green energy producer to replace what energy they've used with energy produced from green sources.

I am motivated by anything as well as saving money on web hosting, but if something costs too much I will always look somewhere else The great value for money that you get from HostPapa is great which is why HostPapa is one of the hosting companies that I currently use for some of my websites and why I recommend them to people. They provide a complete range of services and products which you would expect from good hosts.

Customer Support

The customer support is really good as well where I had one incident where I allowed my subscription to lapse. HostPapa does actually send out reminders by emails but I didn't check I called them up and they were really friendly and fixed my problem within a few hours when I though would be a mess and cost me a lot of money.

Setting up your web hosting on HostPapa is easy. There are a ton of tutorials on their site detailing step by step how to get your site online. FAQ and help files are also there. The probability of someone having had the same problem that you are having are pretty high so you'll most likely find answers to your hosting questions on the FAQ.


The Linux servers plans are by far and large more than enough for your website needs such as for plain information sites, shopping site, blogs or forums. Their SQL databases are able to handle what you need from them. All multimedia elements are supported needless to say such as Flash and video. In terms of security, Hostpapa have it all covered, all your transmitted data can be protected and you can setup restrictions to certain folders and files on your site.

To top it all off, HostPapa will give you a free domain name for life (as long as you are hosting your website with them). You can also check out your site performance and statistics for traffic with their built-in performance program so there's no need to pay a third party service for this. You can also create as many emails as you want such as This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and so on which is great for a growing company.

I highly recommend you try out HostPapa to host your website and guess what? They offer a trial period so if you don't like their services, you can get your money back with their 30 day money back guarantee. So what have you got to loose? Try them now!

I've been with HostPapa for the past 6 years and I can honestly say i've not had a single problem with them. Their customer support is great as they've been helpful to all my problems especially when I contact them through the online live chat which saves me from having to make international calls to them and wait in queue. Highly recommended if you are looking for great uptime, service and reliability.

Thanks, I signed up with them and so far so good. I did use their online chat help for a bit of setting up and the guy on the other side was able to help me all the way through.
