We came across a relatively new UK based web hosting service provider called, Zyma, with shared web hosting plans that pushes the limits of cheap web hosting — these guys could be the ones providing the cheapest hosting plans on the planet! For those who are looking for the cheapest web hosting plans, things couldn’t get cheaper. They include all features that other web hosting companies offer, at possibly the most affordable price. Their plans start around £4.95 ($7.85) a YEAR. Yes, not per month, but per YEAR.
But wait? Isn’t this hosting fee unbelievably low and too good to be true? So as always, we contacted the web host company to inquire and here is what we were told:
“Some customers maybe a bit skeptical about our hosting price, but to those people, we would like to stress that we offer a FULL 30 day money back guarantee policy. That way they can try our services and find out for themselves to see how good it really is.“
Ok, but we also noticed that even though they seem to have a live chat support feature on their site, it ultimately leads us to their “Contact form”. In addition, they seem to only accept Paypal at the moment. So we thought we will ask them these queries as well and here is what they have to say:
“At the moment, we only accept payment via Paypal, and offer around 14-16 hours of live support per day every single day (including weekends), but in the near future we will be looking to accept credit and debit cards directly on our website, as well as offer 24/7 live support.“
Fair enough! But when one thinks about the affordability of such cheap hosting plans, one question that comes to mind is — how? So we asked them about their business model behind these cheap plans and how they plan to stay true to their promise. Here is what they say:
“At present we don’t offer dedicated servers, but again, this is something that we are working on and hope to offer this in the near future. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of site owners don’t need a dedicated server and are looking for a simple, cheap and reliable hosting service, this is exactly what we offer.“
Moreover, when we took a look at their web hosting features, they are offering some really cool SEO tools for your blog as well. The Search Engine Optimization Tools that are included are Get In Google, Google Score Card, Broken Links Reports, Top Local, Targeted Traffic and Link Building. These applications are intended to help you along your way to ranking your website high in Google. They also include a voucher for Google Adwords or Yahoo Marketing. However, for the price of their cheap hosting server you can easily afford your own marketing campaign.
Zyma’s unlimited hosting plan, which has been tailored to suit the majority of website owners is also certain to attract a lot of attention at this time of the year as many website owners look to either purchase a new hosting plan or renew their existing plans with their current hosts.
Overall, they seem to offer a very competitive service for a ridiculously dirt-cheap price. £4.95 per year is about $7.80 US per year. Add to that the cost of a domain… $7 to $10, and you have a very cheap website/blog. The next cheapest option we could find around was more than $50 US a year. So this really is a great looking deal and well worth checking out, especially since they offer 30 days money-back guarantee too.
