Mosso Review: One Month Later

So it’s been a month since I switched over to Mosso, and I couldn’t be happier! There are benefits to having a dedicated server (unlimited amount of sites you can host, no worries about usage/bandwidth overages, better access control vs. manipulation through .htaccess, etc), but the worry-free nature of Cloud Hosting won me over. Heck, I was able to go away to Alaska for a week without Internet access, and I didn’t have to worry about my sites going down or anything.

The issue I was most concerned about was my Compute Cycle usage, as Mosso only gives you 10,000 cycles per month. I did manage to exceed this, but I’m working with the guys over there to figure out why this is happening (I’ve got two sites that are currently eating up a big chunk of the cycles), and I’m confident that we can get this worked out.

My only other gripe is with their control panel interface. It’s a bit cumbersome to navigate, and a little slow at times. But for most of us, once we setup our sites, we’re rarely going to visit these screens again.. So it’s not a HUGE deal overall.

If you’re interested in making the switch to Mosso, contact me and I’ll send you a referral code good for $25 off your first month’s bill!
