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!

My go-to web host provider
Harsh Tiwari,

I'm a web developer and currently have over 70 clients hosting with Hostomy, all on shared hosting in the different tiers of service depending upon the client's hosting needs. I've found the servers to be fast, solid and reli... More able with no issues. The tech reps working the phones are extremely knowledgeable. However, the chat support is also terrific and I can solve most every issue with a quick chat. I have clients spread out over a dozen web host providers, and see a wide variety of cpanel and propriety server interfaces. For me, Hostomy is by far the preferred go-to web host. Less

Truly a sub 1/5 company
Tom Herbert,

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
Support is worst

They say 24/7 support but whenever I message them on live chat I never NEVER EVER get a reply. I really don't recommend a host with no support at all.
