Re: HostPapa

It’s a Canadian company. HQ Ontario, judging from their legalese. Pretty well established around the world, though, if their list of offices is any indication.

Should have been HostMama, though.

Looks like another HostGator or GoDaddy for the masses to me. I’m sure they have a similar page for WP, etc. But I can’t be moved to verify.

Yeah, I did a view source on the site and they have offices everywhere, which really piqued my curiosity.

Why would a company of that size, pick Textpattern, there’s got to be a back story, heck they got our branding on the site.

Re: HostPapa

Dunno. But of they have a Txp installation, we should reach out. At least offer an affiliate link or something to them from our domain.

Nice find, Bert!

Re: HostPapa

Don’t get carried away. They are using some clever SEO. In the footer you can find direct links to CMS Hosting, CRM Hosting and Wordpress Hosting amongst others, but no sign of Textpattern in those links or elsewhere on the website that I could find. A gargoyle search for “textpattern hosting” puts HostPapa on page 2, whereas a search for “textpattern cms hosting” puts them right up at the top.

CMS Hosting

We’re listed in this link. Scroll down. Fifth in the list.

The site isn’t very responsive on desktop, but they may be serving a dedicated mobile stylesheet.

Re: HostPapa

SEO & keyword stuffing. They have the same for Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal…I stopped checking after that. Nothing to see here.

Or SEO pros perhaps… Notice the link you gave, bici, was a .ca link. The ones I gave were .co.uk and Bert’s first one was a .com. So they are detecting where you are coming from and serving the page accordingly. Not having a clickable logo gives you more incentive (or trying to force you?) to click a Get Started, Learn More or such-like link instead. I haven’t done so but am sure they will present a very good competitive offer that might tempt you before you go.
