User Reviews

Excelent for developers

5

This VPS services is just for developers and is excellent! The base VPS package (256 RAM) is only $20 a month. The services is reliable and the support has been quick the few times I've needed it. I have had no downtime except for issues over a 48 hour period. Despite not having a SLA I was given a free year of hosting for that incident. What fantastic service and high standards!

For Developers Only

4

As they say on their site, Slicehost is for developers. That means you have to install and manage everything on your own. That includes the OS, LAMP, etc - even security updates and configuration. I was hoping it was something I could easily pick up, and I eventually did get it to work. Unfortunately that's not something I want to spend so much time on.
