A survey of zoyahost

We, at, have chosen 'zoyahost' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we presume that this short review of 'zoyahost' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'zoyahost' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'zoyahost' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting packages provided by 'zoyahost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts delivered by 'zoyahost' are powered by a custom devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an individual group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the price very low (because a lot of customers are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare capital that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each site hosting plan furnished by 'zoyahost' comes with an online site building tool and over forty popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'zoyahost' delivers shared site hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, practically the whole World is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'zoyahost' are really well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from $5.25 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'zoyahost' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a typical shared web site hosting package via a Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When matched against a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include full server root privileges (we, at, consider this a tiny downside), but the good point is that they are managed via the same website hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting packages. This suggests that a known GUI is available to all users who are not confident enough to manage a VPS server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'zoyahost' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $15.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'zoyahost' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'zoyahost' supplies a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of site. According to 'zoyahost', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'zoyahost' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'zoyahost' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'zoyahost' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
