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!

Bacloud is the best hosting partner I've ever had!!

As I am a happy and very satisified customer of Bacloud for quite some time now, I need to write a review about their superb service and support. The Bacloud sales team is always ready to help you to find the perfect server a... More rrangement for every custom need you might have and also is always ready to negotiate a good price with you.
Also the support (Silvestras and his team) is the best support I've ever had. They are available at any possible time via chat and if it should happen that chat is paused, they react to written support tickets within no time. Really cool service guys! And I want to thank you very much for all your wonderful help so far.
To all colleagues, who look for a hoster with perfect price/service relation and outstanding support which is also ready to accept crypto for payment, you now have found the right one: BACLOUD!! :-)
Best wishes,
Johannes

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

Poor service

Support was unable to answer by question, get angry and just closed the ticket. What a joke, not a serious company. VPS performance also very poor. Happy to move somewhere else.
