Slicehost Reviews



From Slicehost's own site: "We take three things very seriously: customers, servers and networks.

If something goes wrong, we’ll fix it fast, tell you what happened and make sure it doesn’t occur again. We answer to you."

"You really can't beat this host. There is only one down side and that is it's self managed and there's no hardware firewalls...That could have changed and I could be wrong, but that's Rackspace's selling point over Slicehost...Rackspace recently acquiring/partnering with Slicehost to offer Mosso/Cloud Servers because of Slicehost's really good software to manage virtual servers. So that said. I'd only recommend this host to web developers. I wouldn't sell a client on it unless they really were on a shoe string budget. Rackspace is going to offer everything that you should have plus what Slicehost has...But it's going to come at an increased price. This is 100% perfect if you're learning Linux and how to manage/setup web servers. It's perfect for custom web apps and running application you can't run on shared hosting. The cost is in line with VPS and is on the better end for what you get. Backups are available for a nominal extra cost. The tools they offer with their management for your server is great. You can completely screw up and (as long as you have some local copies of your files) you'll be fine."

"I've been using slicehost for about a year now, and I'm really happy with their service. I'm planing on moving all my clients here from mediatemple (who is also good just too pricey)"

"I signed up for Slice Host a month a go so I can't comment on their long term hosting status, but what I can confirm is the absolute ease at which I was able to set up the slice. It has been said this is not for the beginner, however as someone with no command line skills I was able to set up the server, install packages, get apache & PHP5 running with MySQL & postgres, and all my DNS settings configured including subdomains based purely on the Slice Hosts excellent online how-to articles. The backups, although $10 extra per month, have allowed me to set up daily and weekly backups, as well as offering a one click backup at any point (usually takes a minute or so). The price is a little more then some of your other hosting options, but if you want to learn about looking after and setting up a server this is the package for you."
