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!

Excellent Services - Friendly Staff

I started using Typical Hosting about 3 years ago their services are great and I have never had any downtime. Their customer support is great considering they only have an email & ticket system in place and usually I woul... More d get a reply within 10mins-4hours depending, but. They have very friendly staff who have helped me with my website a lot! and if they can't do anything on their side they send me in the right direction so I can get my problems resolved.
I would also like to add that their pricing can seem a bit much but after using their services I can comfortably say am much happier here than my previous hosting provider.

Truly a sub 1/5 company
Tom Herbert,

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
