Zone is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Zone is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
Estonian web hosting company Zone Meda LLC began operating back in 1999. It offers a wide range of hosting solutions, including shared hosting, cloud hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration.
Zone’s website is well-organized, informative, and available in Estonian, Russian, and English.
Features and Ease of Use
Zone’s three shared hosting packages – Plan I, Plan II, and Plan III – vary in terms of web and email storage, but they all come with the following features as standard:
- Free SSL certificates
- My Zone control panel
- Zone+ application installer
- Daily backups
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited FTP accounts
Zone has its own web-based custom control panel called “My Zone,” which provides a user-friendly user interface for managing your website, domains, and associated services. Within this control panel, the Zone+ application installer helps you install all the important applications (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Moodle, Magento, and more) with just one click.
