I am very happy with my hosting company. They are the best hosting company in Japan that I have heard of so far. I have three sites hosted with them, all on the same account, and they are all up and running all the time with no is...Read Moresues. While their control panel isn't the easiest to navigate, that isn't something I need to worry about very often so it is no big deal.Less

Hosting with Style

Best hosting in Japan. I've tried two other companies so far and neither gave me what I needed. One of my favorite things about Netlaputa is that I don't have to worry about anything. I really give them almost no thought at all because I know that they will always be up and running.

Expert Overview

Hosting in Japan since 2005

Net Laputa is a Japanese company that has been in business since 2005.  They are focused on providing shared hosting services and while they are certainly not the largest hosting company around, they seem to do a pretty good job.  Their website has a very “Japanese style” to it which you may or may not like depending on your own personal taste.  It does load fast and is easy to navigate.  It is in Japanese of course and I didn’t see a native translation option to English on the site so I had to use my browser’s plugin to get it done.  If you’re looking for very simple and affordable hosting in Japan, this is a good company to look at.

Uptime & Reliability

Seems to be Stable Hosting

From what I have been able to find, this company provides good stable hosting.  There is some concern regarding slowness, which is common with shared hosting providers.  Most people won’t have an issue but if/when some sites are getting lots of traffic on the same servers as you it can slow things down.  Overall, however, the uptime and reliability is pretty good and most people will be more than happy with the performance. 

Features

Simple Hosting Features

They only offer shared hosting services, and only three options in that category.  Each option, however, will likely have plenty of features based on what you need.  The entry level hosting has 20 gigs and that goes up to 100 gigs of disk space for the top level.  They do limit you on number of databases (10, 20 and 30 depending on the package) which is unfortunate, but most people won’t need more than a few anyway.  They also limit you on domains and sub-domains (5, 10, 20).  As you look through the features you’ll see they are all mostly basic.  

Support

Limited Information Available

There is very little information available about their support services.  They likely provide you all the details only after signing up, which is unfortunate.  I did not find anyone having issues with their support and most people who use this type of hosting don’t need much support anyway because they aren’t doing much advanced work.  That being said, it would be nice if they provided more information right on their website. 

Pricing

Low Prices

The prices are very reasonable.  Starting at 2800 yen and moving to 10,000 yen.  The first month is also free, which is nice.  They seem to offer a free month each year too, which will save you a little money.  Overall, the pricing is pretty good for what you’re getting. 

Summary

Good Basic Hosting

This is obviously a basic hosting company that is focused on people who just need something simple.   There are millions of people who need this type of thing so there is nothing wrong with that.  If you want your site hosted in Japan and you know you’ll never need to move beyond a good shared hosting package, this is a good company to consider. 

Pros: 

  • Low Prices (free month)
  • Decent Features

Cons: 

  • Only Offering Shared Hosting
