As mentioned, I used to run a charity website on Hostpapa and I was happy with the server reliability I got at Papa. Do I recommend HostPapa? Yes. But in the same time, I need to remind you that, for the more or less the same price you pay with this company, there are plenty of other website hosting services with better customer support and better reputation.

HostPapa is not a good web host for people who handle crucial data and for those who require support regularly because they have poor customer support. Their prices may be attractive for some people but not for others because of the long-commitment involved to be able to get the cheapest price. Some customers may choose them because of green energy and low prices but without efficient support they may feel let down. It is not a popular green hosting provider compared to others like GreenGeeks.

Despite a number of excellent features and a 100% reliability rating, a number of dubious policies coupled with below average speed test results preclude our unqualified endorsement at this time.
