An assessment of zoyahost

We, at, have picked 'zoyahost' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Hence we believe that this concise review of 'zoyahost' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'zoyahost' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'zoyahost' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have seen is the low prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by 'zoyahost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by 'zoyahost' are driven by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have great complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price really low (since multiple users use one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting plan delivered by 'zoyahost' comprises an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'zoyahost' supplies shared web space hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, almost the whole planet is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'zoyahost' are really well appointed and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $5.00 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem tough to manage. That's probably why 'zoyahost' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a standard shared webspace hosting plan through a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free website building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When matched against a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and features than a VPS server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'zoyahost' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $15.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, huge sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'zoyahost' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'zoyahost' supplies a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. According to 'zoyahost', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'zoyahost' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server ships with free-of-cost billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'zoyahost' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'zoyahost' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
