Zyma Technologies: Interview & Review
Zyma Technologies is a multi-award winning hosting company based in Middlesbrough, UK. The company was founded back in 2010 in the bedroom of a Computer Science student. Despite its humble beginnings Zyma has huge visions for the future and has steadily grown year on year. They now have thousands of customers all around the world in over 65 different countries covering four different continents.
Zyma prides itself on its customer services and affordable hosting packages. As well as this the company boasts a very loyal customer base, whereby a whopping 90% of their new customers are referred by existing customers. We had the privilege of interviewing Khuram , Head of Marketing over at Zyma.
Staying Ahead of the Game
“Our fast growth over the last few years shows we are moving forward in this industry”
The founder of Zyma Technologies started building computers in their early childhood and then went on to experiment with servers when he was studying for a degree in Computer Science. Fostering an environment of continuous learning is a key focus of Zyma Technologies, Khuram told us” I believe self-teaching is one of the best ways to learn especially when it comes to computers, and I often encourage younger students to constantly learn and adapt to new technologies if they want to stay ahead of the game”. In a fast-paced field such as technology, keeping ahead of the game is extremely important.
Keeping it in the UK
“We are aiming to become one of the top hosting providers in the UK”
When Zyma was founded (in 2010) Khuram told us that “there were not a lot of UK based hosting companies and a large amount of UK users would have to host their websites offshore on US servers”. For anyone who knows about hosting, this is quite a big problem. Firstly, for customer service, because of time zones, the office hours can often be out of sync. Also, more importantly, hosting locally for the users in the area is a great idea to enhance speed and ease of use. The Zyma data centers and customer service operators are all based in the UK. In the beginning, Zyma offered only shared hosting, but now also offers both reseller hosting and semi-dedicated servers as well, all based out of their UK datacenters.
We asked Khuram why they specifically chose web hosting over other types of technology and he explained that “It is an area that will always be in demand for as long as the internet exists, and my technical background in Computer Science made it an ideal match for me to combine my degree knowledge with real-world problems faced by the industry.”
Going the Extra Mile
“Our focus has always been on delivering great customer service” Zyma
Zyma is dedicated to putting the customer first. Khuram told us: “We don’t want to be known as “another hosting company”, but rather our strength is our commitment to helping others”. He explained that is the main reason 90% of their new customers are referrals from existing customers. Zyma offers a fully managed hosting service for their customer’s convenience.
