I recently decided to move to a VPS from shared hosting. After much research mainly on WHT I had decided on Zone.net, and since WHT was so helpful in my decision process I thought I'd post a review.
My sites all run Drupal CMS, so I was looking for fast in terms of cpu for page generation times. And also a VPS that was "managed" because it was big jump from shared hosting for me.
Anyways I had my big test May 3-4 when I was providing online coverage for a dog event. Over those two days was pretty much averaging 50-100 concurrent users, about 40,000 page views /day, which translated into about 250,000 hits a day on the server.
I must say the server never even hickupped. All the traffic didn't even slow it down one bit. So I was very impressed with all that and very happy. I think it could have handled double that traffic. I am on the smaller plan with 512 ram guaranteed.
I submitted a few support tickets that were all answered pretty quickly. Don't have any complaints or negatives to say.
When I ran some admin tasks on the site that on the old shared hosting would take a long time and frequently time out. on the zone.net vps those same admin task would finish in a couple seconds. I couldn't believe, we are talking like 20x faster.
I am most impressed with the hardware and performance of the VPS. And would recommend to anyone looking to run CMS type website.
I'm sure a lot of people interested in vps hosting thank you for posting your review. Keep us updated further on down the road how things are. I once considered zone before I got my servers. Always like the pricing.
