HostPapa Review

HostPapa is one of the first “green” Canadian hosting companies.

HostPapa at a Glance

HostPapa was founded in 2006 and is based out of Oakville, Canada, and serves small to medium businesses. Their focus is in creating an affordable, reliable hosting service for Canadian business owners.

It’s also worth it to mention that HostPapa uses mainly green server facilities, ensuring the power consumption for their website is driven by natural energy as much as possible.

Uptime

My website hosted with HostPapa never went down (outside of scheduled maintenance time).

I believe they give a 99.9% guarantee for their server uptime, and judging on my experience that seems to be a good bet. Generally speaking I did not have any problems with my website. 

Customer Support

The support team at HostPapa is friendly, knowledgeable, and responded to my inquiries through the live chat within a reasonable time. 

Their knowledge base content is pretty good, and helped fill in the gaps for the times that the support team was not available or I simply wanted to go in and figure something out for myself.    

In Conclusion

While the prices and support with HostPapa are great, there are some hidden fees (Whois Privacy and automatic backups), so keep this in mind when buying.

If the additional services aren’t that important to you or you can tolerate the upcharges, I definitely recommend HostPapa.

Check them out, their support agents are available most of the time and can provide answers to your sales questions quickly. Overall I would say that HostPapa would be my second-favourite choice to CanSpace.
