With servers in the Netherlands and its home country of Estonia, Zone offers an array of hosting products at relatively high prices. They may well be worth it for the features you get.

Overview

Zone

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

Zone’s three shared hosting packagesPlan 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.

Pricing and Support

Zone’s prices are relatively high compared with other international providers in the same category, and you can pay for its plans using PayPal, credit cards, bank transfer, and several other methods. Although there is no clear refund policy, this company’s terms confirm that you can take advantage of your statutory right to request a refund within 14 days.

Contacting customer support is not as easy as is stated on Zone’s website. You can only contact the company by email or international telephone call. Unfortunately, my exploratory email as a pre-sales prospect customer received no response. The help section is almost as unimpressive, with a limited list of topics:

Bottom line on Zone

Zone offers a range of hosting plans with great features, but not at competitive prices. You might, of course, consider that you get what you pay for. Even though this host has many years of experience in the industry, some areas are ripe for improvement, particularly the support resources.
