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!

Jolly Works Hosting; after almost a decade...

In short=>
We are happy clients of Jolly Works Hosting since 2011 and very highly recommend this provider.
Back story=>
We provide hosting & maintenance services for a small, select group of clients & do not ope... More nly resell hosting services.
For those client's needs, shared reseller hosting is 100% sufficient as long as it is very solidly reliable.
A policy of ours is to give small, non-domestic providers a chance to prove their goodness - and this is where Jolly Works Hosting got its chance and did indeed prove to be a very good value - so much so that it is now our main provider.
We use their highest allotment reseller hosting plan & quite happily pay for 2 years each time.
We used their cPanel based services before the recent sweeping price changes in that utility - and now we are very happy DA based users.
Worthy of mention here is that as hosting users, we realize that we are paying for resources - but:
Most important of all is the hands-on work of managing the servers and above all else - the support services from that provider.
We realized that this provider is in a very different timezone - thereby working opposite hours of most folks in the US.
The support there is very responsive, polite & helpful - such that these differences have been a very minimal concern.
So in summary:
It is our firm opinion that for most agencies needing shared reseller hosting, it is well worth giving Jolly Works Hosting at least a trial run.

STAY AWAY
M. P.,

Used to be decent, gone wayyyyy downhill in recent years. Atrocious customer service, they WILL frequently make mistakes and not adhere to what they tell you at all. Double-billed me for two years strait w/o notice. Failed ... More to process refunds correctly. DNS errors left and right. refuses to take responsibility or even offer a small discount. Awful company, idiotic customer support, they literally could not give a single sh*t
Will be taking my business elsewhere as soon as the year expires.
Beyond spotty service, their web portal is impossible to use - literally looks like it hasn't been changed since 2004.
