Peruvian hosting provider HostingNet.pe (not to be confused with any same-named hosting brand in another country) is a hosting brand of iMedia Network SAC, which started operating in 2004. Its servers sit in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, U.S.A.
While HostingNet.pe’s website is in Spanish, its WHMCompleteSolution-powered shopping cart and client site can be switched into 25 alternative languages.
Features and Ease of Use
HostingNet.pe offers three shared web hosting plans, three plans each for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Moodle hosting, three reseller hosting plans, four radio streaming plans, three reseller streaming plans, three VPS streaming plans, four VPS solutions, and six dedicated servers. The three shared web hosting plans provide you with:
- Spanish-language cPanel control panel
- 10 GB to 70 GB disk space
- Unlimited transfer
- Unlimited databases
- 100 to unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL certificate
- Weekly/daily backups on external disks
- PHP selector
- 1 or 2 hosted domains
The Softaculous auto-installer helps you install 300+ applications (such as a CMS) without any internet expertise. Alternatively, non-coders can create a website with the SitePad website builder. Your website will sit on SSD storage for faster performance and better reliability (compared with HDD storage), and you get an industry-average 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Scaling up from shared hosting to a VPS gives you root access for full control of your server, and you get combined OpenVZ and KVM technologies for faster performance than competitors.
This company offers more than merely shared hosting and VPS solutions. You could start a radio station with its radio streaming plans, or you could take advantage of the available web design and e-commerce store development services.
Pricing and Support
HostingNet.pe’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced. You can pay via PayPal, credit card, Western Union (for foreign deposits), or bank transfer. While annual prices are advertised, I can’t say which other billing cycles may be available because the checkout seized up when trying to choose a domain.
If an annual commitment scares you, you might be reassured by the 15-day money-back guarantee that gives you two weeks to change your mind (although some services are non-refundable).
Support is available 365 days a year, but I can’t say for sure if it’s 24/7. You can contact the company by telephone (for emergencies only), ticket, email, live chat, WhatsApp, or Facebook Messenger. All inquiries should be addressed within 15 minutes, and indeed, I received rapid responses to my questions via live chat:
For self-support, you will find some frequent questions and somewhat sparse knowledge base.
