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!

Amazing price for the amount of storage
Benjamin Karginski,

Despite reading on some sites that the performance/speed isn't that great on some forums, but since every other service had an insane price increase after 3TB (and I wanted/needed 4TB) I took their offer and I've been very ha... More ppy with it ever since. Over all a great choice if you need a lot of storage sort of as a "cold storage".
In terms of reliability, basically never down, they just recently had an IP change, which was really the only downtime (apart from a user error on my side) I've every had with them.
Pricing is great. (literally nothing to add, price is just great)
While their support is a bit slow, you usually get a response the same day if not the next, during holidays it can take a bit longer. They are always trying their best and very friendly. I had an issue where something broke the bootloader and they were eager to help with mounting a rescue ISO to the VM. (It didn't work, but i was able to "sanboot" via iPXE to an Ubuntu live ISO and repaired things from there). It was during Christmas so I wouldn't call it exactly their fault for being slow.
Their customer UI is some off-the-shelf thing but works well.
I had/have an issue with upload speed sometimes being very slow but their support was always helpful with whatever weirdness was going on.

They used to be excellent but are now dreadful
AnneMarie Brody,

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
The worst experience with hostsolutions.ro
kamran shahzad,

They didn't reply of tickets. They did not solve server issues. My server was down for a 1 month they didn't fix it. I have paid them 3 months in advance. Then i request for cancelation and refund of payment. Now it's 3 month... More s i didn't get the refund nor they reply the ticket.
Now, i don't have server with them still they are charging the amount which they have to refund me.
Please never trust or buy from this company.
