+8 Deal Score

Hostwinds is running their annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday - 65% off everything including VPS which is pretty sweet. I'm not up for renewal yet, but they've been rock solid for me.

65% Off All Plans/36 Months [hostwinds.com]

To Maximize your savings, you need to select 36 months, and pay upfront at checkout so you lock in the 65% or more discount for 3 years

Hosting Examples:

Shared Hosting [hostwinds.com]: (36 Months @ $1.75/mo: $62.93)

Business Hosting [hostwinds.com] (what I use) ( 36 Months @ $3.50/mo: $125.99

Managed VPS Also 65% off:

Managed Linux Tier 1 SSD [hostwinds.com]: 36 Months @ $3.85/mo: $138.60

Managed Windows Tier 1 [hostwinds.com]: 36 Months @ $5.85/mo: $214.27

Looks like if you pay month to month that's the case, but it's taking off 65% of whatever is ordered, so if you pay multiple months (or even years in advance, like 3 years at a time like OP) it's taking 65% off that total (look at his screenshots).

Did you select 36 months in your cart and go to checkout? The discount is locked in if you pay for the entire 3 years so that would be triennial and not month to month. I've been locked in with mine with a year to go.

Support is telling you if you pay month to month, then yes the discount is only for one month, they just worded it poorly lol

To throw in my 2 cents, I've had a managed VPS since their 2017 BF deal. Support is extremely fast, and can't complain. Their Level 1 Tech support can be questionable, but you get escalated to level 3 Techs pretty fast, they'll know what they're doing

Might as well just use aws free tier instead of spending $6/mo.

As long as the cpu/ram of the VPS meets nextclouds minimum I don't see why not. Pretty good use case

I only have the last 30 days of data with uptimerobot, but my business sites are 99.99% currently. The .01 was downtime at 3am. I can't speak on normal shared hosting
