Very good experience. No downtime in last 3 months.
Ridwan Choudhury,
9.6
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 hosting service provider
Aleksei Tepljakov,

This is, in the humble opinion of the reviewer, the best and most user friendly hosting provider in Estonia. Sure, there are other hosting services here, too, with larger annual turnovers. But being a customer of Virtuaal.com... More for 11 years straight (as of 2018), I can honestly say that I couldn't care less about that. Reliability? Top notch. Support? Extremely fast acting. Any issue is solved literally in a matter of minutes. And that all over 24/7. Alright, maybe some features are missing, this is the only thing that I can point out; but, every year more features are added. That is, the service is evolving, which means the developer can still deploy his apps to Virtuaal.com while taking advantage of almost all modern web technologies. Bottom Line? Highly recommended!

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
