An evaluation of Papua Web Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Papua Web Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we suppose that this short review of 'Papua Web Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Papua Web Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Papua Web Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting plans provided by 'Papua Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts offered by 'Papua Web Hosting' are driven by a custom built, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting companies are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Every web hosting account furnished by 'Papua Web Hosting' ships with an online website builder and over 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Papua Web Hosting' provides shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, almost the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting packages offered 'Papua Web Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at an excellent price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'Papua Web Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared package through a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer full root access (we, at, count this as a small weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared hosting packages. This means that a known graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Papua Web Hosting' can be branded as being very 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 web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Papua Web Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'Papua Web Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. In 'Papua Web Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Papua Web Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web server ships with free invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Papua Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Papua Web Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
