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!

Used to be decent, gone wayyyyy downhill in recent years. Atrocious customer service, they WILL frequently make mistakes and not adhere to what they tell you at all. Double-billed me for two years strait w/o notice. Failed ... More to process refunds correctly. DNS errors left and right. refuses to take responsibility or even offer a small discount. Awful company, idiotic customer support, they literally could not give a single sh*t
Will be taking my business elsewhere as soon as the year expires.
Beyond spotty service, their web portal is impossible to use - literally looks like it hasn't been changed since 2004.

False advertising
Rowan Weston-Moore,

1. False DDoS protection, you guys claimed it was due to my software crashing the VPS on a DDoS attack, my new host which I installed everything the same on it and sure enough after a while of us announcing we have a new host... More we got DDoSed, not only did the service not go down but I got an automatic email notification.
2. False 1gb port, this new host also claimed to have a 1gb port, not only did if have super fast files transfer (unlike you guys) when connecting to Minecraft servers it was able to ping the numeric IP instantly unlike you guys where it took several seconds to ping
3. Expensive pricing, when I first found you I thought you where the cheapest but this company that I moved to DONT have shared cores and have 10 cores dedicated to me with 50gb ram and 1tb SSD, they have better specs than you as well,
4. When my VPS got compromised and BW filled up you charged me 10 EUR for an extra 1tb of BW, which is the same price as the actual VPS, it's not as if you gave me 16gb of ram and 160gb SSD you just gave me bandwidth
Yes I did a previous review and that was the day after I purchased it
