HostPapa is favored for its low cost and basic reliability. It offers Magento hosting via version 2.0 on its shared, enterprise, reseller, and cloud plans, while its VPS and dedicated plans offer Magento hosting through version 2.1. HostPapa is assessed positively for its large disk space and various types of hosting.
HostPapa’s basic web hosting plan, Starter, includes all essential features of hosting services, such as free website transfer, Cloudflare CDN, free SSL via Let’s Encrypt, Starter Website Builder, and cPanel Control Panel. It also offers one-on-one training, 24/7 support, and a 30-day money-back guarantee. In addition, the Starter package allows you to host up to 2 websites on your account, while many providers only allow 1 in their most basic plan.
For storage space, the Starter plan gives you 100GB of disk space for your websites. This is a good amount of storage to start with, but if you want to grow bigger, you can consider upgrading to more advanced options to get bigger storage and bandwidth like its VPS plans.
Regarding security measures, besides the free SSL, all of HostPapa’s VPS are supported with network monitoring, brute force detection, a firewall, and regular security updates. Security is the main benefit of HostPapa’s VPS plans over its shared plans. Magento businesses should go for the VPS options thanks to the increased resources and security for eCommerce sites.
