A review of Zia Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Zia Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Hence we suppose that this short review of 'Zia Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Zia Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Zia Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared web space hosting services provided by 'Zia Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages supplied by 'Zia Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a different set of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have big problems with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting firms are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price really low (since many clients share one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each and every web space hosting package offered by 'Zia Hosting' ships with an online website builder and over forty widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Zia Hosting' distributes shared web hosting packages in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Zia Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a very good price (beginning from $3.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'Zia Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared web site hosting account via a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting account such as a free web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When compared with a shared webspace hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with root-level access (we, at, count this as a small minus), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web site hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This hints that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a private virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Zia Hosting' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Zia Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'Zia Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'Zia Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Zia Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Zia Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia CP will possibly make the use of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Zia Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
