This blog was started on a shared-hosting account and then got migrated to a fully-managed Zone.Net VPS hosting and stayed there for a long time, until the needs demanded a switch to a dedicated server 5-6 months ago which Zone was not providing at that time, I enjoyed my stay with ZONE.Net hosting and was willing to do a review about their hosting services since then but never found the leisure to do so, finally here I am doing a review for one of the cheapest and best VPS hosting provider out there.
Zone.Net business motto is to provide the best technology at a great price to the customer, and they seem to deliver that quiet well, during my stay at Zone hosting I found there VPS hosting to be extremely fast and reliable the company is in the hosting business since 1993 and the experience seems to help them get the very best out of the hardware and provide top-notch VPS hosting at unparalleled price.
While Zone.Net offers excellent package at great prices, the support system needed a boost at that time as the average ticket response time was 2-3 hours on average (not bad at all but not the best), after reading some hosting reviews I think they have done some hard-work on that but still need to iron out some support issues, The staff is always responding well and resolves issues quite well the owner himself is an active WHT member and can be approached via forum.
- Excellent servers at best price.
- Wide range of fully managed and unmanaged VPS options.
- Full VPS server control via Virtuozzo VPS Power Panel.
- Fast 24x7 online, email and toll-free phone support.
- Automatic pro-active ZoneAlert monitoring service.

Zone.Net is still my number one choice and recommendation for webmasters looking for budget VPS servers, the company also provides special offers, discounts and additional addons from time to time, so keep an eye on hosting coupon sites for best deals.
Currently, this blog is hosted on a fully-managed WiredTree dedicated server having Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 CPU with 1 GB RAM, WiredTree servers are a bit expensive compared to some other companies, but the most critical parameters of any hosting service - performance and support are simply superb and top-notch at WiredTree.
