Well Established Hosting in Peru
Peru-Web is, as you would expect, based in Peru. They have been in business since at least 2008 providing their customers with good web hosting services as well as developing websites for their customers. They seem to focus mostly on individuals and small businesses, though they do have some VPS options that medium sized companies might be happy with.
Their website is in Spanish and doesn't have a native translation so I had to use Google Translate, which didn't do a very good job. The site itself is laid out logically so you can easily get to where you need to be. In addition to the hosting and design they also offer domain registration services.Read More
Uptime & Reliability
Hosting Seems Stable
The hosting with this company will be quite stable for you. They do have a standard 99.9% uptime guarantee. The hardware they use is also of good quality so that won't likely go out on you. When looking through current and former users of the site, there were some complaints of slow load times. This is almost certainly with their entry level hosting package. It is hard to know whether to blame the hosting company for overselling the servers or the customers for signing up for a lower than needed hosting package.
Mostly Typical Hosting Features
When you look through the features from this company you will see that they are mostly standard for hosting. The shared hosting options provide you with limitations on things like disk space, bandwidth, email addresses and more. The limits aren't TOO low, but they certainly aren't overly generous either. When you move up to VPS and dedicated servers the limits are still in place, but they are much more reasonable. There are 'unlimited' plans for shared hosting too, if that is what you need.
This company does offer an 'adult plan' that is specifically for adult sites. If this is the type of site you are going to run, this is good to know. If you're not interested in this type of site, however, this can be a concern. Many people don't want their regular site on the same IP address or even IP range as adult sites as it can sometimes cause them to be blocked by certain types of firewalls and IP filters.
Quality Tech Support
The support from this company seems to be quite good. They don't really provide much information about it on their site, but the users that I saw seem to have had a good overall experience. They don't have a blog or FAQ or knowledge base or anything like that, which is unfortunate, but they do have live chat and other helpful services to keep your site running smoothly.
Low Cost Hosting
The prices are pretty low across the board. The prices are listed in the native Currency of Peru for the shared hosting packages, but when you move to the VPS and dedicated servers they are in US dollars. This can make it a little confusing, but it is easy to figure out if you pay attention. The shared hosting costs are very low and they charge annually rather than monthly. Some people don't like this arrangement, but with the low costs it shouldn't break the budget.
The VPS and dedicated servers are priced more in line with the average rates based on the type of hardware. Certainly not a rip off, but not the best deals I've seen either. If you want VPS or dedicated hosting in Peru, it might be the right option.
Not a Bad Option for Hosting in Peru
If you want your site hosted by a company in Peru, this is not a bad option. They also have servers in New York, so that does give you some additional flexibility. While there is little with this company that really makes them stand out from the crowd, they also don't have anything really lacking. Take some time to go through their features and prices and if it is what you need, give them a try.
