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!

Customer service is always on top of my list when it comes to choosing a web hosting provider. After trying several providers, I can vouch for TFhost and I would rate them 10/10 for their top class support and service. They k... More now how to keep the customers happy and get more business through word-of-mouth. 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
Terrible. Just terrible

Unfortunately the server has repeating downtime.
Customer Support refuses to give answers and mostly focuses on promising they are doing their best to maintain a 99.9% uptime, which is very far from the truth.
I suffered down... More times that lasted for 18 hrs. Very much not recommended. Less
