HostPapa knows how to get things done with their offerings for webmasters. They provide all the features, services, and amenities the other guys have in addition to a few extra things thrown in for good measure. The pricing is really sort after for most Aussies, for $3.95 they are the cheapest Australian hosting provider on the market and have been placed in the top position!

Every account with HostPapa includes unlimited space and bandwidth, as well as unlimited e-mail accounts. Most of the competition relies on the amount of space and bandwidth you need to set their price, but HostPapa gives it all to you for one set cost. You can also have unlimited add on domains, subdomains, and parked domains – another feature most companies like to curtail. Last, but certainly not least, HostPapa provides for unlimited MySQL databases.

All of these features and services come standard with most web hosting accounts, but you have to pay for them according to plan. In fact, most places base their tiers of service on the features they provide, whereas HostPapa gives it all to you for free – a lot of which is unlimited. Unlimited add ons and parked domains are an example, and are great for those webmasters with more than one domain who do not want to host them all at different places.

HostPapa’s e-mail is just as robust and feature-packed, featuring both POP and IMAP, unlimited accounts, forwarding, and auto-responders, and virus and spam protection. HostPapa also supports webmail, so you can check your mail online without using a mailer or mailing client.

A standard account includes Web Builder software, a quickstart wizard, WordPress and other blogging platform hosting, and more. With the many scripts HostPapa offers, you can also include things like bulletin boards, wikis, polls and surveys, a guestbook, and much more. HostPapa also supports content management systems and offers several to choose from, including the industry leader, Joomla. You can also include pictures, embed sound and video, and more. HostPapa supports Flash, Shockwave, Real Audio, and others.

Monitoring traffic is a big deal to most webmasters and HostPapa has you covered with web statistics, Analyzer, Webalizer, and access to your raw and Web files. Not only will you be able to tell how many visitors you are getting, but where they came from, what they viewed, how long they stayed, and what operating system and browser they were using when they came to your site. This information can help you tweak your site to better fit visitors’ needs.

e-commerce site owners will also find everything they need at HostPapa, from SSL certificates to shopping carts, and all points between. Paypal compatibility is also included, though there is an extra charge for dedicated IP addresses.

HostPapa offers all of the features the major providers have, though it is a little more expensive than some. Right now though, they do have a promotional offer that cuts that price in half. The company also promotes a reseller plan if you are interested in that. Lastly, HostPapa is proud to be green and boats several major awards for its service.
