Quite unreliable hosting, server goes down regularly. I lost my account password and it took me 10 days to get a replacement password sent to me. This is NOT acceptable, yes it was my fault for losing it, but no password recovery should take that long! I lost so much money. Internal support is adequate, you will get a response within 10 minutes to 2-3 hours depending on the time of day, but overall quite speedy and usually very polite.

If you need simple hosting, do not use ZipServers, if you're an owner of a large website like me, then consider them, their prices are very reasonable, but with value, comes problems.

What is cloud storage? Cloud storage is storage capacity that can be accessed for upload and download via the Internet, server, desktop, portal, API, or PDA and charged for based on a pay per use model. This includes a wide range of storage solutions, from simple drives to comprehensive storage area networks.
What makes cloud storage different from other on-line storage options?

Cloud storage provides a stateless connection that can be accessed via a private network or through a public channel such as the Internet. Cloud storage enables new capabilities for new and existing applications—providing an as needed, scalable environment rather than fixed storage capacity seen with traditional storage options.
What situations are best suited to utilize Cloud Storage? Cloud Storage provides an attractive price point that is ideally suited to support a variety of storage needs, including:
• An on-demand, scalable storage resource is needed for projects of fluctuating storage demands
• Documents, spreadsheets, graphics, or projects are required to be accessed anywhere

• Files need to be sent or shared between users
•Backups or archives require a long term storage solution
