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!

Support is great and very courteous

We have a dedicated and a virtual server for the past 5 years. The support has always has been efficient and courteous. During this time we have also upgraded our initial servers. Sales took their time an expertise to explain... More and propose the appropriate server for our needs. We are very satisfied with Leaseweb. Less

STAY AWAY

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.

A complete fiasco
Ava Dobreva,

Bought a Windows M hosting plan. They had issues with the Plesk server, so for 10 days our developers were on hold because we couldn't access the server. 10 days!
On the 11th day they still hadn't fixed the problem but found... More a walk around. Then, the real fiasco began - nothing worked. Constant glitches.
On top of that, you buy a plan, and later on when you find out half of the expected services are missing, support tells you, quoting: "I would suggest to instead purchase a Dedicated Server or a Virtual Server, and purchasing a full license for Plesk."
Given that I have a very simple Wordpress website I have developed in a staging environment and simply had to migrate it, and I was told by their support prior to purchasing that the plan I'm getting suffices.
Fast forward 12 days, we're exchanging emails back a forth, and they keep insisting they can't refund me, even though they completely messed up on their end.
This is the most terrible hosting provider I've not only ever encountered, but ever heard of.
