Which hosting package is right for me?
Business Cloud packages are ideal for start-ups to medium scale businesses with predictable daily web and email traffic. These packages have more than enough computing resource allocation for the use case they were designed for.
Business Cloud packages have higher CPU, Memory and I/O limits compared to Unlimited Packages. This design allows businesses to enjoy business class hosting at a very affordable cost, without having to worry about prolonged downtime, email spam and hacking. On the average, disk quota for business cloud packages will take years before getting hit and by that time, storage density will have increased significantly and our package would most likely have been adjusted to allow higher disk quotas for each packages. We have medium scale enterprises that have been with us for the past 4 years or so whose disk usage hasn't even exceeded 3GB.
Ideal for students, startup businesses or self-employed individuals with fairly simple static website or light content management (CMS) and working on a budget.
Ideal for startups who wish to have more disk storage as it essentially has 500% more storage than CLOUD MINI. This package also allows more emails and database to be created. Ideal for startup with light CMSes and low daily traffic. This package will perform well for optimized websites that has less images and videos and relatively few pages. Good for start-ups, micro-enterprise and personal websites using this package.

Unlimited email address allows creation of email addresses for all employees. Majority of medium scale businesses will fall under this package. We have trading companies, construction companies, schools, service providers, brokers, manufacturing firms, and pharmaceutical companies subscribed to this package.
Enterprise Cloud packages are perfect for more popular websites. These are for big businesses, schools, e-commerce sites, government agencies, industry leaders, forums and other specialized web hosting needs that require guaranteed up time, spam free mail and serious hack protection. Packages under this category do not have hourly mail sending limits making it ideal for companies with high volume of email transactions daily. Accounts under Enterprise Cloud are created in a less tenanted server. This means that there are more computing resource allotment and less server load, making websites load faster even during peak traffic hours.

CLOUD-ZOOM / CLOUD-CUSTOM
Designed for high traffic websites with good number of concurrent visitors and with high volume email usage, downloads, multimedia gallery, billing system and other specialized web hosting needs but do not have the time and knowledge to maintain a dedicated server. Some of the country’s popular and high traffic websites are using this package.
Unlimited shared hosting packages are everywhere. Many hosting companies are forced to ride this marketing bandwagon but in the expense of website owners who get frequent down time, crawling websites and pathetic support.
To differentiate our service, we have carefully designed three unlimited packages for specialized use -- UNLI-BASIC, UNLI-PRO and UNLI-BIZ are designed to meet the needs of website owners who don't want to worry about hitting their bandwidth or disk quota in the future. The higher the package, the higher the CPU, memory and I/O resources you get.
Unlimited here means that resources are not metered so for specific hosting needs i.e., intranet websites, private group websites, landing pages, promotional websites, affiliates websites and other specialized hosting needs where owner wants utmost flexibility in bandwidth and without having to worry about website being suspended due to quota being exceeded. These packages are designed for gradual disk and bandwidth usage growth that is predictable and at a reasonable rate commensurate to the amount of the package the website owner is paying. This is on the premise that storage per dollar spent is increasing every year and therefore, accounts that grow at a reasonable rate commensurate to the increasing storage density are understandably allowed to be paying the same amount month-by-month or year-by-year even if their usage is increasing because disk density is also increasing.
In reality though, there’s no such thing as absolute no limit package Servers run on electricity and require cooling system, secured environment and geo-redundant Gigabytes fiber optic connection and need professionally trained server administrators to maintain and optimize. Current cost per Gigabyte of cloud storage used by ZOOM Hosting is around $ 0.10 / month, but this doesn’t include the cost of other computing resource such as Bandwidth, CPU, RAM and server administration cost.
Customers, who are new to this think that they can get away paying thousands of dollars for a hit website getting millions of traffic daily and instead, pay only P100.00 per month. NO, that is just not true. No hosting company will allow you to consume the resource of an entire server and pay only Php 100.00 monthly. Unlimited packages are usually covered by Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP) that prevents website owners from abusing the server and exhausting server resource of an entire server with an overnight traffic increase and storage requirement.
Unlimited Cloud hosting packages have lower CPU and RAM usage to prevent website owners from abusing the unmetered packages and exhausting server resource, making it less ideal for moderate to high traffic business websites. Packages under our unlimited cloud are also not designed for file, video and image storage/sharing, backup storage, video, audio streaming, forum and similar applications that uses huge amount of computing resource. We recommend choosing from one of our CLOUD BUSINESS packages for regular business web and email hosting use.
