People, who are industry experts, know that in a shared hosting environment, 100% uptime promise is not realistic. In practice, 100% uptime in shared hosting is almost impossible to achieve given the fact that your site is in a server that is shared by many other websites neither you nor the hosting provider can control. The more websites in a single server, the factors to control in terms of RAM and CPU usage.
However, HostPapa put all possible measures in place to monitor their servers and promptly eliminate any potential problems as soon as they appear on their radar. To be extra safe in terms of Uptime, it is recommended that you upgrade to your own dedicated server or a Virtual Private Server (VPS). These are available at HostPapa from $19 per month. 40% applies if you use certain HostPapa discount codes.
For critical mission websites you will be glad to know that HostPapa’s data server goes way above industry expectations. The actual data center is guarded 24/7 by uniformed security and monitoring systems are in place to ensure that the facility is highly controlled. This includes stuff access controls with photo identification, alarm systems and CCTV security cameras throughout the building.
HostPapa’s datacentre is designed by Cisco systems, providing one of the most advanced network solutions in the world. The center is equipped with full power redundancy thanks to its own energy generating solutions located in-house and redundant climate control solutions.
Selecting the Business Plan at $3.95 per month, for a 36-month term, comes at $142.20.
If you add Domain Privacy, SiteLock Security and Automated Website Backup (which is recommended) the total is $192.09. The plan includes a 30-Day Money-Back guarantee.
There is a field to apply a promo, source code or referral code at checkout. However, promotional codes for HostPapa.com are time dependant and are released when HostPapa run a special offer or promotion.
Bear in mind that this price of the Business Plan already includes 70% off. Normally, the price would be $12.99 per month.
