WiredTree launched in 2006, and was focused on providing managed dedicated and VPS hosting with high quality hardware, and a modern support and service system.
They promote the fact that they manage software, hardware and network infrastructure and services, thus lowering the barrier for entry for those without server skills or the money to hire dedicated support to run high traffic websites.
They also consistently mention the fact that they have both always open toll-free phone and helpdesk support.
They really try to market the fact that they are there for you when you need help.

Who is WiredTree For?
WiredTree due to its pricing, support, and services lends itself to being useful for many different types of customers looking for VPS or higher web hosting environments.
First, there is the price of their web hosting, which is very reasonable for what they provide, especially when taking into account the service and support aspect.
I have two VPS accounts with WiredTree currently, and have found not only the servers to be very efficiently configured, but the issues that I created for myself were solved very quickly.
At one point, before I launched BrandingDavid, I was installing items on the server using Yum, a quick way to easily install applications on Linux, and at one point, I had put a star in my command, and it started to install many applications I didn’t need, and nearly ruined the server. I couldn’t run commands properly anymore, and it was a nightmare. I was embarrassed, having more knowledge and skill than this, and so I tried to fix it myself.
After about twenty minutes, realizing I was going no-where, I contacted WiredTree support about my problem, and explained everything to them. I even mentioned what I was trying to install, and the issues I was having with the dependancies.
Two minutes later, they responded that they would deal with it, and less than an hour later, not only was the server fixed, but they had also installed and configured the software I needed.
Their support was game changing to me, and really set in motion a series of small events, similar to that, where WiredTree made my hosting experience painless and frustration free.
Who isn’t WiredTree For?
If you aren’t transferring multiple gigabytes of data each month, then even the lowest VPS account on WiredTree will probably be overkill for you.
WiredTree VPS accounts start at $44 per month, and go up from there. If paying over $500 per year in hosting fees is outside of your budget, then WiredTree isn’t for you.
While you don’t need to have skills in understanding how to manage a server, you’ll find that understanding how to use SSH, WHM, and being able to quickly figure out and understand their Virtuozzo server panel will make your experience at WiredTree so much better, and so if you don’t have any knowledge of these things, WiredTree might not be for you.
In the end though, I am of the opinion that there are very few people that wouldn’t enjoy what WiredTree has to offer.
