Founded in 2005, Hosting Peru provides a range of professional and business hosting solutions (including domain registration services) to customers within Peru and beyond. Their offices are in Lima while their data centers are colocated in Dallas, Houston, and London.
In addition to web hosting and virtual private servers (VPS), Hosting Peru provides web design, email marketing, and premium SSL certificates.
Features and Ease of Use
Starting with their infrastructure, Hosting Peru operates high-grade servers with Intel Dual Xeon processors and SSD hard drives with RAID 10. I like the fact that their network is channeled through eight connectivity providers with a combined speed of 120 Gbs, so there’s no question about the speed, stability, or redundancy of their network connections.
They have planned and designed their infrastructure in a way that can sustain growth over time, and each year they review their infrastructure and service policies with the aim of reducing costs and ramping service delivery to customers.
With their easy-to-administer shared Linux hosting and Windows hosting, you can set up a website within minutes of signing up. The cPanel and Plesk control panels are in Spanish, so Spanish speakers should have no problems managing their web space. From the admin panel, you can create webmails with personalized domains, import databases via MySQL and files via FTP, create subdomains, monitor website statistics, and much more besides. All hosting plans come with free SSL certificates that you can use to secure your website and files.
Things start to get interesting when you scale up to their turnkey Linux or Windows virtual private servers. With more than twice the speed and storage of shared hosting, VPS servers powered by high-performance machines guarantee fast web page load times. Their fully managed services leave you with little to worry about in terms of the configuration or day-to-day administration of your VPS. You can install ASP.NET apps, PHP, and MySQL on your preferred platform then manage them via Remote Desktop.
If you want to execute a project that requires more disk storage or processing power or control, I would advise you to use Hosting Peru’s dedicated servers. They’re designed with speed, security, and flexibility in mind. You can choose the number of CPU cores, and can even partition your storage to host different websites or apps. The best part is that you can scale your resources whenever you like.
Pricing and Support
Hosting Peru does a fantastic job of pricing their hosting packages transparently. Even with their starter package, you will feel that you’ve received value for money, and I encourage you to take advantage of the 15-day window to try out their hosting services.
Hosting Peru provides excellent technical support in Spanish. The support team based in the Lima office can help you troubleshoot and resolve hosting issues within a reasonable time. Their team consists of web designers and system administrators with vast experience in Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. You can reach them by email, phone call, ticket, or via their live chat system. From feedback left by some of their clients, it looks like they respond to inquiries in a professional and timely manner.
As well as live operators for technical assistance, they also have a good number of guides and video tutorials to help you solve your problems yourself.
