Pros-

Uptime:

It’s quite impossible for a web host to provide 100% uptime as the companies need to carry out server maintenance, etc. But still, HostPapa has a very decent uptime which is around 99.97%. So, in a year that will somewhere below 3 hours, which is pretty low in comparison to many web hosts.

They also have a Business Pro plan which comes with security and advanced enhancements along with all the benefits on the Business plan. And all these can be availed at a mere price of $12.95/mo.

Cons:

Entry Level Hosting Company-

There is no doubt about the fact that HostPapa provides some of the best web hosting plans but there are some grey areas they can really work on. Though these areas might not be a deal-breaker improving them would be quite beneficial for the customers.

The features offered by them are quite good. But some features like moneyback guarantees can be improved quite a lot. And besides that, they don’t include the backups in the lower level plans.

HostPapa offers massive discounts on all of their plans but they are a bit misleading as well. In the Business plan the $3.95/mo. The package can only be obtained if you choose to use their services for 36 months i.e. 3 yrs.

Hidden Up sales-

HostPapa has quite a lot of hidden up sales. Well, these up sales get added to your final billing automatically when you choose a web hosting plan.  Before making the final payment, just scroll down and there you will be able to notice that a few up sales get added to your final bill. These can be removed but still, they could just notify them beforehand about these.

Conclusion:

HostPapa surely does provides its users with quite a lot of features and at quite low prices. The uptime provided by them is pretty good but along with that, they have quite a lot of different available support options. But there are quite a lot of other web hosts too, who provide the same kind of facilities and at the same prices.

If you are interested to pick HostPapa, the go-ahead as at the end of the day it’s your money. But we would suggest that you research properly before choosing any web host.
