Very good experience. No downtime in last 3 months.

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!

1 month ago I purchased Magento hosting from Krystal hosting. they really helped me a lot to set up my business. I do not come from a technical background but I didn't face any problem to setting up my business because it of... More fers the best knowledge resources & supportive customer support. For my other website, I purchased 1 domain from GoDaddy & WordPress hosting from Domain Racer. These companies assure me that non-technical people can also build the best online business. Less

ASO used to be fantastic but they're absolute garbage now, borderline scam. They literally do not have a way to delete your credit card information, will renew your plan when you disabled auto renewal 2 weeks before it's due ... More and hide behind "according to our terms of service you have to cancel 45 days before your renewal".
In it for nothing more than the money, avoid at all costs

Hello James,
Unfortunately, we will no longer be providing you with a hosting service in the new year.
Also note i started paying £2.99 a month and it went up to £10 a month. I advise staying away from this company

We will ensure that you are refunded in full any remaining time on your hosting service and our support team will provide backups of your data if you require them, to ease your transition to another hosting provider.
