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
