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!

Flummoxed with the negative reviews of TSO Host.

I'm going to quick with my comment. All these negative reviews about TSO Host make no sense, whatsoever. Either they are bot related or the people using the (TSO Host) service are two sandwiches short of a picnic. Either way,... More something seems amiss.
I have used TSO Host for many years. Their customer service is amazingly friendly, informative and helpful. Problems/questions are answered and rectified very quickly.
I have no idea what these 'reviewers' are reviewing. I cannot agree with any of them!
Regards
David

ASO used to be fantastic but they're absolute garbage now, borderline scam. They literally do not have a way to delete your credit card information, will renew your plan when you disabled auto renewal 2 weeks before it's due ... More and hide behind "according to our terms of service you have to cancel 45 days before your renewal".
In it for nothing more than the money, avoid at all costs

They should close business

From being a decent, honest and supportive company, TsoHost recently became all that a company shouldn't be. I have been with them for many years and I was pretty happy, but now they have repeatedly messed up, migrated, chang... More ed several of their settings and type of platforms, while drastically reducing, when not totally cancelling, their customers support. They claim it's 24/7/365 with Live Chat, but Live Chat does not exist!! They have cancelled their phone services and what is worst is that their support ticket service has become excruciatingly slow and inefficient. I have had several occasions when my website froze, emails not working, setting unexpectedly changed and now they are requiring their clients (me) to adjust some DNS record settings, of which obviously I have no clue...and they are not offering any support. AVOID TsoHost at all costs! Less
