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!

Very Friendly

I recently setup a couple VPS's to manage my reselling website and reached out to support to a few times and they were very friendly and quick to respond. I also love the user interface of SkySilk, it's very seamless and to ... More the point. I recommend SkySilk definitely, to anybody needing a cloud server for any reason. They also have a ton of templates to choose from, including Minecraft servers and that GTA 5 role playing server mod, both of which I am DEFINITELY trying out sooner or later. Less

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
Stay away from it
Unhappy Customer,

I've bought a VPS premium server.
They claimed cpanel free of charge, premium support and priority list, locked pricing at certain amount, in two different emails.
After purchase turns out non of this is true. Cpanel comes... More with a hefty extra surprise monthly charge, had to wait for a whole day to get a reply from support. Pricing agreed upon with sales team, only available when committing for whole a year.
And who would commit to such a deceiving company?
Was never able to access the server, it really feels like a scam.
