Very good experience. No downtime in last 3 months.
Ridwan Choudhury,

I signed up with A Small Orange despite seeing many bitter reviews on the internet. I've been using ASO shared (small) plan for 3 months. Never experienced any issue with their service. I've monitored my website uptime with J... More etpack plugin of wordpress and tested speed, server response time regularly. Never experienced any downtime in last 3 months. Pingdom shows my website is faster than the 98% website. Actually, so far I'm very happy with their service.
It is true that their support ticket is very slow and they took almost two weeks to reply my ticket about registering a new domain. But I never had to wait more than 3 minutes to get live chat support. My ticket was solved instantly via live chat.
Another good thing about ASO is their server name and user area interface is very unique and user friendly.
Hope ASO will remain consistent with their good service. Best wishes for ASO team!

They used to be excellent but are now dreadful

They used to be excellent but now they are terrible. For over a month their servers have gone down every two days. The chat staff are as helpful as they can be but they do not seem to be allowed to refer matters up the chain ... More to the senior managers. I cannot find out who the current CEO is and it is not there person you get when you Google the subject. If you press them on this they just say they will upgrade the support ticket. Every two days I have to get on the chat line to ask them to fix it. It am going mad with it. Less

Dear all ,take your 30min to read all my message here and understand it, please!
If you looking hosting server if you search ALCHosting.net then you better RUN!RUN!RUN! Important things must REPEATED 3 TIMES!
I'm lazy to talk... More so much and explain so much,but to avoid next VICTIMS I must shared it out everything and you MUST attention it!
Why before Im choosing them ? Because of those positive reviews,truly disappointed why they must SCAM this way to steal the money ?
Ive already sending those info to anti fraud department with different country!
This way to avoid next VICTIMS,it's really terrible even MORE horrible!!!
ALChosting will help you much and much as possible when you first place order and payment issue.Once they received your money,then they will start clear all the ticket and close your ac without informed or delay chat or act like
really send you remote details or server details.
Dont believe it ? Okay, lets go we have a look on those screenshot below. Oh before that, I want mentioned they might think they are smart enough,but actually NOT SMART enough and they're IDIOT !
Because Ive all the screenshot and the proof before they removed and closed evrything from my side.While I chatting with them and I found that when end conversation at livechat, send chat conversation to email address
is not work, so I start screenshot every single chat when communicate with them !
So many many screenshot from my end but I just get some listed here >>> Enjoys ~
First place order and Payment Done

Ticket Support: Josh a
Billing: Johanna L
Tech support:Jessa Mae
FYI ,currently info stated on their site, may change anytime from their end , this is current https://pasteboard.co/K45zxR4.png
Also their name can change different later on ,dont be suprised.
If you keep monitor their site you will know their live chat was amazing.Example, now your IP country from Singapore you still can chat them. But if they found you the same IP then they will block you instantly.
But few hours later, you try using diffrent country IP, the live chat will prompt out again.Then you can using different name or email to chat them if you are really free or try get back your funds!
