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!

I found it important to find a good Magento hosting. Previously, I tried some of the hosting providers that introduced themselves as special Magento-configured hosts. My experience there was not very successful. Then I found ... More it at Simple Servers.
Right now I'm at Simple Servers for 6 months.
When you tell them your needs, then you will receive the right offer. They will not try to sell the most expensive service, but just what you will be the best choice.
At Simple Servers, it's very easy to make a Magento installation. One click. Magento's performance is great even in a shared plan.
After some time, I needed to migrate my web site from the shared hosting plan to the cloud. It was a very fast migration. Very good explanations and support from the Simple Servers team.
Keep up the good work!

They used to be excellent but are now dreadful

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
