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!

I have tried many sites that work with the same systems, but I did not find anything more beautiful than this page in terms of prices, services, and ease of use. It also provides a quick response to users when they request su... More pport. I really liked this site called Ifastnet. I invite everyone but advise them to use this wonderful site to facilitate their projects and electronic businesses that depend mainly on the domain I will give it a 5/5 stars rating 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
Starts fast but after few weeks slow your site down and ruin your business

Speed is everything, It will give you customers in two ways.
1. customers will not wait, so if slow they move elsewhere
2. Search engines rank your site by speed and usability. Slow site, google will drop you
Ifastnet start f... More ast. Today my less than 2 seconds webpage takes 3 seconds short of 2 minutes to open.
Why? Because Ifastnet have throttled my site today.
Google drop it, customers leave. Would you use a site that takes 2 minutes to open each page?
Customer Services are totally useless. I wild suggest who ever owns ifastnet sacks them all as they are costing him/her money.
They take their pay check and do not care if the business fails or not.
If you own Ifastnet and do not take action today you deserve all you get if this business closes
GET RID OF YOUR USELESS STAFF, EMPLOY PEOPLE WHO WANT TO WORK
Sort your hosting out
ANYONE THINKING OF USING THESE WOULD HAVE TO BE STUPID TO THIS YEAR (2021) YOU WERE WARNED
CHEAP YES - BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
Unfortunately they got 2/10 this should be 0/10 but this site makes you click a star in each section
