Zyma.com and hostingsthatsuck.com both Suck

Hostingsthatsucks wants you to think that Zyma.com does not suck.


The whole methodology of they don’t suck if they have no results when you search  “zyma sucks” on search engine.  The problem is Zyma.com is an aged domain.  An aged domain is usually one that was purchased  a few years or more that was never used or abandoned.  There is a lot of value in this domain since its 4 letters.  Despite the low Alexa score (low is good, high is bad), Alexa shows that this site has not had much of a traffic increase until a couple months ago.

You don’t need another zyma review or Zyma critique to decide. You can read as many critical review, comments, Zyma Technologies issues, Zyma Technologies problems, limitations or criticism about them that you can find. Here is a challenge to find a better hosting than what we just recommended. Go search for some other web hosting with no “X sucks” pages on Google, and post them down here in the comment box.

First of all reviews on Zyma as a host are rare if any.  There is a reason why their challenge is pointless,  before it was a British webhost they were a Spanish company that offered:

Zyma commercial. SA is a company dedicated to the world of commercial and industrial pejase, offering the best products Mobba Bizerba and Sorrentino, of which we are exclusive distributors and service we own.

Within the world of industrial weighing, platforms FREE investigation of all types including weighbridges, also have scales and counting scales for inventory, company.

This seemed to be the case up til 2006.


Despite that hostingsthatsuck has to ask:

Did you hear zyma customers had problems? Some said Zyma scams? Read some zyma issues and bad experiences? Did you hear about Zyma horror stories and their limitations?

Didn’t they say before that “zyma is almost perfect! With no or little complaint whatsoever.“?

Why does Zyma have my attention?

Despite a cost that seems too good to be true, and it probable is because I am sure thats either a limited time price or there will be some hidden bills.   This host contacted me on January 15, 2011 and January 17, 2011:

Frankly I don’t think I have any site that I am willing to trust on an account that costs less then $10 a year.  Even if I did they would gain far more from me doing a review of their site, unless of coarse I signed up for their affiliate program.  I am willing to bet that Hostingsthatsuck.com started using this new host around the same time that I got this email.  The date on their post was January 19, 2011.   I find other people that did as well:


A Zyma.com employee approached us to review their service. For this we received a hosting account from them free of charge for which we used to evaluate the service. If you would like me to review your webhost on Pingable, get in touch using the contact form.

Hostingsthatsuck’s affilate id with Zyma.com is aff_id15007

“You have seen the number analysis above. Numbers don’t lie.

To validate their argument they post cropped pics of the control panel.  They don’t show numbers such as uptime, how much space they used, number of days hosted, and other details that a consumer could use to determine if this is a valid host.  The only numbers they use are the amount of “host sucks” search engine results (though “almost none” is not a number) and “£4.95/YEAR (normally £1.79 / MONTH).”  The site post is riddled with afilliate links.

This is a host I think I need to keep an eye on.

Its safe to say that Hostingsthatsuck’s review about Zyma is not to be trusted.

  1. agree their Hosting sucks,Firstly my site was hacked which was hosted on their server later they suspended my account now,really they suck.
    And from the day 1 i started using their hosting i am having different problems.

  2. This may not be the right place to post this, but I found Zyma great!!

    Roughly 8 months ago I paid £5 for a hosting account with Zyma for a year!! Which in my books is VERY cheap for a web host, so I wasnt really expecting much in terms of specs, so I used it as a platform to learn php etc.

    To cut a long story short… I stopped using my site 4 months ago so didnt bother doing any security upgrades… my site got hacked (my fault, I didnt update wordpress *tisk tisk*) and Zyma noticed before I did!! … Like I said, it was an old site I was using briefly. They *obviously* suspended my account to prevent any further damage.

    I contacted zyma via live chat, and he told me the problem and gave my account back straight away; he was friendly & polite considering it was my stupidity that caused the problem & I should have really deleted my account as I wasnt using it. Even though I wasnt using it AND it got hacked he still un-suspended my site and it is there should I want to host another website.

    I never *noticed* any downtime, except for the aforementioned, which was my fault.

    My hosting account came with CPanel & I installed a copy of Opencart with roughly 500 visitors a month absolutely no problem!

    While I dont believe Unlimited on my package is actually unlimited (Rarely ever is) I have used 1/2ish GB Storage Space & 2GB Bandwidth A Month with no problems what so ever.

    For anyone thinking “Well Zyma shouldnt advertise unlimited then” … 90% of all shared hosting providers are guilty of it, you should do your homework before settling on a host hoping for the best. Simply send them an email and ask what their ‘fair usage policy’ is, they are all very upfront about this, including Zyma.

    Even a multi million pound hosting company (one of the biggest in the industry) say unlimited… and it isnt actually unlimited, it is all about fair usage.

    Think of it this way, if you go to an ‘All You Can Eat Buffet’ hoping to fill loads of boxes you have brought with you from home on top of filling your stomach… so you effectively have emptied the buffet… the restaurant wouldn’t be too happy… and neither would the other customers as they have paid exactly the same prices as you have. It is all about ‘fair’ usage. You should be monitoring your bandwidth consumption regularly, Zyma provide a guide of how to do this.

    My site with Zyma is an opencart site with a custom template & the speeds I get are as follows:

    83/100 Perf. Grade
    Requests: 36
    Load Time: 1.95s
    Page Size: 1.2mb

    I did do the test at 2am in the morning UK time though! lol… but during the day it increases to about ~7s which is good for shared hosting a small website.

    You probably wont believe me when I say this, but it even ran Magento! I know it is virtually unbelievable but it did!! Although I did get warnings about my CPU & memory usage every now and again as my business grew (Which is to be expected on shared hosting)… it still ran it and my account wasn’t suspended for this… despite about 10 warnings!

    Now for a start-up business testing the e-commerce waters(like I did), this is what I call an absolute bargain!!

    I would just like to add, I am actually not affiliated with Zyma in any way, nor did they even ask me to write this review as some people have stated here, I just felt quite sorry for them with all these negative reviews, when actually I found my experience as a whole rather positive.

    I suppose what you have to remember is, you get what you pay for. If you want it to be ultra reliable and host a site with thousands of visitors you should pay more than £5 a year and be on a bigger package.

    I decided to upgrade 6 months ago to a NEW host I will not name, I paid £30 a year and they had a 99.9% uptime guaranty… great I thought… until they left my website broken for 48 hours!! Initially trying to blame me for the failure of my site, only to realise 24hrs after I reported it … that it was actually a MySql fault of theirs!! …. AND for 6x the cost of Zyma!! I only upgraded because I felt bad using loads of bandwidth on a £5 account & didnt want to make any other websites on the same server as mine slow.

    I have now upgraded to vidahost cloud package (absolutely amazing!!) as my business is growing and I would like more resources / reliability that the cloud brings.

    So for £5 a year (although I think it is now £1.79 a month) Zyma are pretty darn good, IMHO… much better than others at £2.50 – £3.99ish a month mark… Zymas customer service could be improved upon though.. would have been nice to be notified my site had been hacked rather than me finding out randomly.

    To Conclude:

    You have to remember Zyma are a shared host & you wont get VPS specs for lemonade prices. But they aren’t actually as bad as they are made out to be, remember the internet is FULL of doom and gloom, for example google headaches lol.

    Vidahost have a very good shared package too @ £17 a year. These guys are TOP TOP notch, you literally cant fault them… & they have THE CUTEST office dog! Which they regularly dress up & post pics for their customers to see!

    If you would like more reliability than a shared host & more resources I would suggest Vidahost / TSOHost Cloud Packages. I am now on Vidahost cloud for £9.99 a month / £119 a year for 20GB Storage Space & 200GB Bandwidth… BARGAIN! & my site is super fast.

  3. Hello Hannah,

    Lots of details are great, but….. where is your domain. Seriously I could write an epic novel on how great Zyma.com may be, but it is useless without a site to see how the host is doing or to see if you actually have hosted with them as long as you claim.
