Flummoxed with the negative reviews of TSO Host.
David Willis,

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

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!

The Ticket service for help is just Slow & POOR in terms of efficacy
R Swig,

I found that when i wanted to get out the slow service meant by the time they were dealing with the ticket my service had been Terminated & i lost my website the availability to transfer & they would not deal with me until i... More d renewed my domain with them: On average the delay in response to their ticket system is just poor, days go by and you just have to wait. Ive yet to have the other means of contact work. I had one ticket that lasted over a year that was to do with failure of sending emails from my ios device that continually failed down to a reason that was never understood, never sorted and persisted until the day i gladly left 18 months later. With TSOHost I just feel its all vacuous help; last help needed before i left was to change the ips tag not done as it was greeted out so i could not do it; Another was to allow my new provider to take over my services that they, my new provider told me, they were deliberately not doing. To be honest in the end it seemed like they were being deliberately purile and standing in the way of the transfer. I CERTAINLY will not miss their Standard of service!! Less
STAY AWAY

Used to be decent, gone wayyyyy downhill in recent years. Atrocious customer service, they WILL frequently make mistakes and not adhere to what they tell you at all. Double-billed me for two years strait w/o notice. Failed ... More to process refunds correctly. DNS errors left and right. refuses to take responsibility or even offer a small discount. Awful company, idiotic customer support, they literally could not give a single sh*t
Will be taking my business elsewhere as soon as the year expires.
Beyond spotty service, their web portal is impossible to use - literally looks like it hasn't been changed since 2004.
