Great simple Hosting
Edward Masters,
9.2
I just needed some simple hosting for my blog and this company provides it very well. They are great to work with and I don't have any real complaints. If you want good hosting in Canada, this is a wonderful company to choose to work with.
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!

Don't Use This Company
Stormi Dykes,

Their Customer Service is non-existent. I have been having multiple email issues for almost four months, which is the kiss of death for a small business - particularly in a Pandemic. They caused the issue when they switched m... More y account from a web hosting to email-only hosting plan, but have yet to figure out what happened. (ONE of the issues is that I now get 1/3 the email volume I got before move, many key emails do not get delivered but the senders don't get bounce-back messages, these senders don't show up in my Spam filter). I have spent almost 60 hours at this point attempting to get answers from their Tech Support team. The answer I usually get – when there’s actual contact – is that the issue has been elevated to a senior team and someone will get back to me. No one ever gets back to me and now they are ignoring my attempts to contact them. As far as I can see, nothing has been done to troubleshoot/resolve my issue and I question their technical expertise. Avoid, Avoid, AVOID. Less
Truly a sub 1/5 company

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
