MyHost or HostPapa?

When people leave HostPapa and join MyHost we hear that they like our clear, stable prices and our helpful, local service.

What happens when the "great introductory offers" run out?

It's easy to see a small number on a price tag and think that you've spied a bargain. But that feeling starts fading if your shopping cart gets loaded up with essential-sounding extras. By the time the special price expires, it's long gone.

Web hosting should be a long-term investment with a reliable provider. You deserve to know, from day one, what you're signing up for - and that you're paying a fair price for a professional service.
