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!

IX! I was not sure how to add a review in your site, I was truly disappointed by some of the reviews
I read in some other sites. First, I would like to start by saying, you have always taken care of me, from allowing me to kn... More ow
months in advance if my domain's expiring, or hosting my site and allowing me enough time to have the year cost. Your company has always set a high standard with my small business when I first started with you nine years ago. My technical helper, Mandy helped me set up my website
with your help. She was very pleased with your company, she used it for her own site. That sold me immediately. Your fees are very reasonable, and the few times I had to be on the phone with you, you have had a friendly staff answering phones and helping with unique questions. A while
ago, I was helped in a very personal way about what to put in certain areas in my site. This person, was remarkable and funny too. She helped me with my wordpress site, by mentioning one or two things I never thought I would know on my own. I don't remember her name, but we laughed and
joked a little. Left a very pleasant image of your company.
There is always a unique person on the other side of the line when I have called. I believe this company has taken very good care of all our sites, by updating it, and taking no more than 24 hours to update living it safe and protecting it from harm. Thank you Ixwebhosting, you are truly an
amazing company to be associated with.

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
