Peru Server.NET has been providing hosting and related services since 2001. It offers a large catalog of Linux and Windows shared hosting products, dedicated server and reseller solutions, and a range of internet-related services such as web design. While Peru Server.NET’s unattractive home page is only offered in Spanish, their “client access” pages can be switched between Spanish and English languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Peru Server.NET provides a wide range of hosting packages with most of the essentials but nothing too groundbreaking:
- Domain registration
- Unlimited domain hosting available
- Up to 12GB of shared hosting storage and 120GB of dedicated server storage
- Up to 150GB of shared hosting traffic and 1500GB of dedicated server bandwidth
With nine plans on offer, you’d think that Peru Server.NET has something for everyone. However, the plans start incredibly low with only 150MB of space and an understandable 3GB of bandwidth, and they go up to 12GB of storage and 150GB of bandwidth. You can get Linux with cPanel and Windows with Plesk, and the Windows plans also come with ASP.NET and Microsoft SQL. The Fantastico auto-installer allows you to install your chosen web applications, and you also get webmail.
This vendor offers only a single dedicated server package with 1GB of DDR RAM and 10Mbps connections speeds, which is not exactly world-class, although the inclusion of Web Host Manager (WHM) and four dedicated IPs are nice touches. Reseller hosting with WHM/cPanel is also available.
As more than merely a web host, Peru Server can also help you with web design, logo design, SEO, and other internet-related services if required.
Pricing and Support
Peru Server.NET offers a wide range of straightforward shared web hosting packages for Linux and Windows that differ in terms of storage and traffic. While not the cheapest provider, their prices range from low to very high compared with many other providers (but possibly comparable to other Peruvian providers).
Billing terms start at one year, and they also include two- and three-year options. There are no shorter-term billing options, except for reseller and dedicated server plans, which is a shame because there is no money-back guarantee to mitigate your risk. However, there is a free five-day plan that gives you some opportunity to try before you buy.
All Peru Server.NET’s products come with 24-hour technical support which you can access by phone or an email/ticketing system. If you just happen to be near their Peruvian headquarters, you can also get one-on-one support in person. Their technical support is not the best, and they do have a problem with slow replies. Unfortunately, you don’t have the option of supporting yourself because their knowledge base is empty.
