Update: Here’s my most recent review of WiredTree.
I had an enjoyable experience with WiredTree (Some Coupons) half a year back when I was starting a joint venture with one of my friends and needed managed VPS hosting. Joe Doss was very helpful in answering my concerns and questions before sign-up. After testing out their demo download and ensured of a good data center and smooth Internet connections, I decided to go with them.
I went with the $99 managed hybrid plan. I was then pretty new to VPS hosting / dedicated hosting where you are in control of much more stuff than when you are with shared hosting. Though they are all very well managed at WiredTree (click to activate coupon), it’s still a bit overwhelming with all the options and different control panel sections. I asked questions. A lot of them. And they responded to my support tickets within 15 minutes EVERY time, no matter when you submit them. I dealt with not just one of their support staff but quite a few of them and they are all quick, polite and to the point. When I search through my Gmail inbox, there are a total of 60 conversations (hundreds of messages back and forth) I had with them in a short matter of less than one month. They were professional and kind in every message they addressed to me.
The hosting part of my joint venture was absolutely awesome. If it weren’t the decision to abort the project with my friend, I’d trust the most important of my sites to WiredTree. So when I told them that I had to close the contract and leave them after just one month, I was kind of upset for them because they have been so nice to me. They replied to my request to close my hosting account with complete understanding and even offered me refund for the remaining days of the month (it wasn’t a full month, just 20 days or so), I asked them to keep it.
As for uptime and server performance, I didn’t set up any 3rd party monitoring or pinging service but as I was working furiously on the project in the 20 days, accessing my websites at WiredTree thousands of times and hundreds of hours, I have not seen the slightest of indications of slowness or down time.
4.8 / 5 from me.
