I have been developing a site for the past 9 months and have been going back and forth with my host company, Rackspace. I’m using their Cloud Sites plan, which is $150/mo….for shared.
My developers and I have been pinging the site and 80-90% of the load times (often 30s for the dev site) are just waiting to connect to the server.
I contacted them to see what is going on and they tried selling me on a VPS type plan that starts at $1,150/mo. They call it Managed Cloud.
My site is WP(3.6.7) and BP with some plugins. It needs to be scalable to grow quickly as I’m planning for a large amount of users. However, there is nobody currently on the site (still in development) and the load time is an issue.
My question is this: what are other BP developers experience with Rackspace? I’m looking to switch because what I am paying for and the run-a-round I am getting from them is not good business.
