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!

Thank you for your help me again today, HOSTSOCH Web Specialists are very fast and solve problems very quickly. There seemed to be a problem with my SSL certificate. I was told by everyone that my certificate had expired the ... More previous day. When I researched my account, I discovered that my SSL has not expired. When I contacted Hostsoch support, the specialist fixed the problem and my website restarted and worked immediately. Couldn't thank enough. Less

This is the worst hosting I have ever had. Don't ever buy their packages because they will turn your life into nightmare. I would rather give them 0 stars if possible here
