Hosting Per Te is a hosting brand of Italian company ARMADA. It specializes in web hosting (shared, VPS, VDS, reseller, and dedicated servers) along with associated services for domains, email, and SSL. Hosting servers are provided from the ITNet datacenter in Rome, and Hosting Per Te’s website is in Italian.
Features and Ease of Use
Hosting Per Te offers four Linux and four Windows shared hosting plans, each with SMART EASY, SMART FAST, SMART PRO, and SMART SSL levels that vary in terms of disk space (4-35 GB), web space (2-20 GB), and 1 GB mailboxes (1-15).
All shared hosting plans come with:
- Unlimited monthly traffic
- Free domain
- Free Web Presence Builder site builder
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
- AWStats for detailed web statistics
- Daily backup
- Antispam and antivirus
- Plesk control panel in Italian
Hosting Per Te uses R1Soft Continuous Data Protection (CDP) to guarantee optimal data security, and it offers a one-click app installer for more than 200 apps so that you can quickly create a blog, e-shop, forum, or photo gallery.
Hosting Per Te also offers six (shared) CMS hosting plans for WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla, phpBB, and PrestaShop, so those looking for e-commerce features can opt for the Magento or PrestaShop CMS hosting packages. There is also a plethora of plans for dedicated servers, resellers, VPS, cloud servers, email, and SSL.
In terms of any uptime guarantee, I can’t see it specifically spelled out on this host’s website. However, the data center boasts about “99.99% service reliability and continuity” (so this might be the average uptime) while the shared hosting product pages mention 99.9% uptime (so this might constitute some kind of guarantee).
Pricing and Support
Hosting Per Te’s shared hosting plans are pricey, and even its entry-level plan is almost thrice the price of the industry average. Then you have to add 22% VAT, which may make it unaffordable for those on limited budgets. You get a free .it, .eu or .com domain and free Let’s Encrypt SSL, but you have to pay extra for a different SSL certificate and/or SiteLock security at the checkout.
You can pay for plans in euros by credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, or postal transfer on an annual, biennial or triennial basis. There are no discounts for the longer terms, so there is no apparent advantage to signing up for longer than a year. If even a year seems like a long commitment, you can take comfort from the 30-day money-back guarantee that should allow you to get out if you change your mind within the first month.
Hosting Per Te provides free 24/7/365 technical support via e-mail, ticket system, live chat, forum, and telephone. My test ticket received a response within a reasonable time:
