Wiredtree are a bunch of real stand up guys!


I have a small forum and for what ever reason it hates shared hosting! Last month I had a 1GB VPS with Wiredtree I asked Wiredtree to make some modifications to the VPS and they did for free.

My forum traffic slowed, and my wife was complaining about paying for a VPS when the website was slow. (Because we are paying off bills to buy a house next year)

I sent a support ticket to Wiredtree telling them I need to cancel my VPS because my wife was complaining about spending money on a VPS when the forum was slow. They said no problem we will be happy to have you back if you need VPS hosting again.

The last two weeks I have been through two different shared hosts because the website had problems at each host. Friday I called Wiredtree around 3am~4am and asked them if they would take me back they said no problem.

I put the order in and some time around 5am I had my new 1GB VPS and I called back around 6am and asked them to make the same changes they made on the last VPS. And they did it again for free!

4am this morning I submitted a ticket asking for Litespeed and it was running on the server by 5am. I can not say enough good things about the Wiredtree guys. This time I will shut down the forum before I go back to shared hosting, its just not worth it!

P.S. My forum has 20 mods and 2 of the are disabled, I don't know if the mods are causing a problem with the shared hosts. But the Wiredtree VPS doesn't even break a sweat. If you want to see my forum the link is in my signature.

I'm happy to hear you're satisfied with WiredTree. Its nice to see a happy customer

Yes, WiredTree is a fully managed provider so they will take care of setting up, optimizing, and managing your server

On shared hosting you were most likely limiting the CPU usage due to the mods you have installed on your blog, but glad you have everything working on your VPS now

Your blog is loading very fast from here

It's always nice to read a positive review on any company.

They are a company on the move.

By the way. You mentioned that the site cost was an issue.
Have you tried approaching local businesses for targeted advertising on your website or other ways to monitize your site (without just slapping random banners onto it)?

If your site is pretty popular it would be a no-brainer for them to spend a little bit of money for the local eyeballs you bring in

It's worth mentioning that WiredTree is going to be upgrading their VPS plans this Monday. Here's the plan:

WT New VPS Plans, starting 7/18.
VPS512->VPS1000 (1024MB RAM, 100GB RAID-10 Disk, 3000GB Transfer)
VPS768->VPS1200 (1280MB RAM, 120GB RAID-10 Disk, 3500GB Transfer)
VPS1024->VPS1500 (1536MB RAM, 150GB RAID-10 Disk, 4000GB Transfer)

This is from their Twitter account: http://twitter.com/#!/wiredtree

So it may be possible to save a good bit of money by "downgrading" to the 1 GB VPS once you get the upgrade.

I second that, pages load fine here in Europe. On another note, Wiredtree is very good. I used them for a couple of months but couldn't justify the costs. So I moved back to unmanaged with no control panel.

The site loads fast for me too, I was checking if the gallery images and that too loaded fast for me. I am not sure about the previous loading time of your sire but I guess litespeed made the site to load much faster now.

Ya I was going to say talk to Wiredtree tomorrow and ask about getting the new plan. As right now the OP going to get moved up to VPS1500 plan. But if they don't need that much ram they can save a nice chunk of money.

From facebook

http://www.facebook.com/WiredTree

I added prices from the current plans as prices will stay the same.

The new VPS plans will be as follows:
VPS512 becomes VPS1000 (1024MB RAM, 100GB RAID-10 Disk, 3000GB Transfer)Starting at $49.00 a Month

VPS768 becomes VPS1200 (1280MB RAM, 120GB RAID-10 Disk, 3500GB Transfer) Starting at $69.00 a Month

VPS1024 becomes VPS1500 (1536MB RAM, 150GB RAID-10 Disk, 4000GB Transfer)Starting at $89.00 a Month



Wiredtree also mentioned their hybrids will soon be getting a level up.

They also said may consider a new entry level package some time in the future.

A lot of good stuff happening over at Wiredtree. It will be nice when their site is updated. Hopefully they update their network page as well as its currently outdated.
