Thank You Wired Tree

Well, after a few months of up and down, network problems, and poor customer service at ManageMyBox, I’ve finally settled in with my new host.  WiredTree.com has provided me exceptional customer service, follow up with my questions, setup my VPS, and all for a very reasonable price.  I’m using their VPS512 package for $59 per month, along with a nifty little coupon I found on the web, so it’s more like $40 per month.

This package has handled my handful of popular websites (1000k+ unique visitors per day) and all my slow sites (under 300 unique visitors per day).  There hasn’t been a slow down, hiccup, networking issue, nothing.  This is a huge load off of my mind, considering I was at my wits end with ManageMyBox where I was using a fully dedicated server.

Just goes to show you can save money by purchasing a good managed VPS over a crappy managed dedicated.  I’m looking forward to being a customer of WirdTree for years to come and hopefully will eventually need their highest tier web hosting option.  Until then, thanks, my blood pressure has finally dropped down to respectible levels.

ManageMyBox Comes Through Again

Something weird happened to my dedicated server yesterday which resulted in all my mod rewrites being null and void.  This transformed my dynamic affiliate websites into steaming pieces of one landing page crap.  Any other link on the site resulted in a 404 error, which no telling what the Google bot thought.  I’m sure I’ll start feeling that whiplash here in the next few weeks.  But there is some good news to be found in this bad experience and it’s thanks to ManageMyBox.

Within 30 minutes of me contacting ManageMyBox, also known as ManageMyServices, my server was looked at and fixed.  I recieved the obligatory reply that they were looking into it within 10 mins of contact and then it was fixed within the next 20.  Furthermore they ran some tests and waited another 20 mins before notifying me that all was well again, even though I had been checking the whole time as well.  A true testament to the service they offer.

If you were considering going with a new Dedicated Host, or perhaps you think you are ready to have your first dedicated server, I would recommend ManageMyBox unconditionally.  Recently they also lowered the price on their Basic box price, which I use, to only $75 per month.  Yes, it’s worth every penny and comes with plenty of extras to keep dozens of affiliate websites running.

I’m open to questions about their service if you are considering them for a host.  But just wanted to say, thanks again MMB.
