In the Best Web Hosting 2016 series, we review some of the most promising web hosting services, which are expected to make a mark in 2016. HostPapa is one of the most popular web hosting services in North America. In this HostPapa Review, you’ll find out why that is so.
HostPapa is a Canadian web hosting company that offers what is called as “Green Hosting” – which means, providing web hosting services without any damage to the environment. That’s because HostPapa’s servers are powered by renewable energy. This is important because everybody talks about reducing the carbon footprint – but HostPapa has gone ahead and actually done it, by using only environmentally friendly “green” energy sources for its data centers.
Besides that, HostPapa is also well known for its superior performance and reliability, especially as a provider of web hosting for small and medium sized businesses. The easy-to-use control panel ensures that anybody can use HostPapa without getting confused by the technicalities.
