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!

Truly a sub 1/5 company

I would give them less than 1/5 if it was possible.
Avoid this host at all costs. Mind numbingly dumb people working customer service and the tech guy destroyed my company website. Right now they can't figure out how to send ... More me a backup to transfer to another hosting company or they think they're playing me to get more of my money. Forget ASO. Less
GVO went over the Cliff
Tony Denson,

The site I had on GVO finally came back up this Wednesday morning after being down since last Friday. I thought I was using a decent company until this chaos came up. I had only 12 local business clients and my personal servi... More ce to them has been exemplary enough that they are staying with me. But he down time made me go and look at the overall GVO picture. And I agree:
>> webinar service has steadily gone downhilll never stable enough for me to use.
>> too many upsells and too much spam
>> overuse of templates made for poor ranking
Goodbye GVO I learned a lot some good some bad
