JP’s High Tech World, Inc — also known as JP World — is an “old school” rather than “high tech” web hosting provider that was founded back in 1997. This American company specializes in shared hosting, website design, SSL certificates, and domain registration.
Despite its many years of experience, and its allusions to website design, JP’s own website is particularly poorly designed.
Features and Ease of Use
JP’s High Tech World offers three shared hosting plans that vary in disk space, monthly bandwidth, MySQL databases, and email accounts. Beware that the website’s hosting page actually alludes to five different plans, but when you proceed to the cart page, you find only the three plans I discuss here.
The Small Business Plan provides 900 MB storage, 10 GB monthly bandwidth, 5 MySQL databases, 5 domains, 5 subdomains, and 20 email accounts.
The Hosting Plan 1 provides 1 GB storage, 15 GB of monthly bandwidth, 20 MySQL databases, 1 domain, 3 subdomains, and 50 email accounts.
The Pinnacle Cart Plan provides 1 GB storage, 20 GB monthly bandwidth, 5 MySQL databases, 1 domain, unlimited subdomains, and 20 email accounts.
What these plans all have in common is:
- SSL certificate
- Plesk control panel
- PHP, Perl, Python, and CGI support
- Application installer
The Plesk control panel lets you manage all aspects of your hosting via a user-friendly interface. This control panel includes an application installer for popular programs such as WordPress and Joomla.
I should tell you that JP’s High Tech World doesn’t only do hosting. It can provide everything from web design to online marketing. However, if its own website is anything to go by, I’m not sure I’d want this company to design my website.
Pricing and Support
For its mediocre features, JP’s hosting plans are expensive. Whether you can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, or triennially depends on the plan you pick. Once you’ve paid by PayPal or your credit/debit card, the money-back guarantee gives you 30 days to change your mind.
This company’s self-support knowledge base is empty, so you’ll have to contact the support team by telephone or email to get answers to your questions. Somewhat surprisingly (because of the dated-looking website) I received an email response within a few hours:
