A review of Papua Web Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Papua Web Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we believe that this short evaluation of 'Papua Web Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Papua Web Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Papua Web Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have seen is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting solutions furnished by 'Papua Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages delivered by 'Papua Web Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a different set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting corporations are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (because lots of clients share the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you economize capital that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each web site hosting account provided by 'Papua Web Hosting' contains an online website builder and more than forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Papua Web Hosting' supplies shared hosting plans in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting services delivered 'Papua Web Hosting' are very well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Papua Web Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared website hosting package via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared packages. When matched against a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting packages. This suggests that a familiar graphical environment is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Papua Web Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Papua Web Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'Papua Web Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'Papua Web Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Papua Web Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Papua Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Papua Web Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $95.00 for the AMD 1 plan.
