Support and other features
They received very good reviews, except for a few bad ones. What we really liked is that they answered to almost every bad review trying to solve the customer’s problem. Most of the time the conversation stopped there, so we have to question the credibility of those reviews.
HostPapa has excellent 24/7 support, you can reach them via live chat, e-mail and phone. You’ll find useful video tutorials and knowledge base on their site as well.
In this HostPapa review we found that they offer plans with great support, and a 30 day money back guarantee and superb geographical coverage. They have multiple servers available in Asia and have coverage in Australia as well. On the negative side you could find them a bit expensive.
