Hosting in Peru
Peru Server has been providing shared hosting services in Peru for quite some time. It seems that they opened for business in 2001 and have been going strong ever since. The first thing you notice when visiting this company’s website is just how bad their site looks. It takes up just a small portion of the middle of the browser and is laid out like a site from the early 2000’s. They really need to take some time to redo the page in order to be taken seriously as a professional hosting company.
The company focuses primarily on offering a variety of shared hosting services in a data center in Peru. It is not 100% clear whether they own the data center or just rent space in it. Whatever the case, however, they seem to be able to keep their customers happy since they have been in business so long. If you’re looking for Peru based hosting, this may not be a bad choice.
Uptime & Reliability
Limited Information Available
There is not much information on their website about the uptime and reliability of their services. I didn’t see any type of uptime guarantee and they don’t talk about the specific brand or type of hardware they use in their data center. They really don’t even talk much about the data center at all. When looking at social media and other pages I didn’t see anyone complaining about the reliability of their hosting, but that could be because most of their customers would not be writing in English. Whatever the case, I’m not too confident in the quality of this companies hosting.
Very Standard Features
When you look through the features for each of their hosting packages you will quickly see that they have very standard options. The lowest level comes with 500 MB of disk space, 7 gigs of traffic, 100 email accounts, cPanel and support for all the most common web languages. As you move up to more expensive packages you’ll get more disk space and bandwidth as well as unlimited emails. Even at the highest level package, however, the features aren’t really anything exceptional. You’ll get just 12 gigs of disk space and 150 gigs of bandwidth, which is plenty but only what you would expect from any shared hosting package.
24/7 Tech Support
The support is provided in the Peru language, so that is something you’ll need to know before signing up. This is a nice thing for local users, but others may have trouble. They provide support through email, phone, ticketing system and even in person if you live in the area. They don’t have much on their website for self-help though so if you need assistance you’ll be relying exclusively on their support team.
All the package prices are listed as an annual rate. It is not clear if they allow monthly payments or not. The lowest level package is $40 per year, which is not a terrible price for entry level shared hosting. By the time you get up to the top level package, however, the prices are really high for any type of shared hosting. The maximum level Linux hosting package is $500 per year. This is over $40 per month for shared hosting, which is ridiculous.
Some Significant Concerns
The only reason to even consider this company is if you are looking specifically for shared hosting in Peru. The prices are too high, there is no uptime guarantee, their website is outdated. They have been in business for quite a long time, so they must be doing something right but it is hard to say exactly what that might be.
- Been in Business for Quite Some Time
- Over Priced
- Very Outdated Website
