Very good experience. No downtime in last 3 months.

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!

I would not recommend AXFONE VPS services
Mihai Rainer,

I had a VPS that failed to boot from the beginning on software restart, by trying to boot from network, then failing with a message that the boot disk was not found. The only chance to restart the server was to power it off a... More nd boot it from administration panel, that was pretty slow. From January, this solution starts booting going to bootloader in about 4-5 minutes. I've tried a lot with their support, at one point it seems that worked, but failed again, and they said there is no configuration problem. But my server still fails to find the disk on warm boot. I kept it 6 months, because I made the mistake to pay on this period from the beginning. I don't know for other services, but for VPS, sorry, no. Less
You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave

ASO used to be fantastic but they're absolute garbage now, borderline scam. They literally do not have a way to delete your credit card information, will renew your plan when you disabled auto renewal 2 weeks before it's due ... More and hide behind "according to our terms of service you have to cancel 45 days before your renewal".
In it for nothing more than the money, avoid at all costs
