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!
Quick and easy!
Lucy Kuhn,
The Crazy Domain team have always sorted out any issues swiftly and drama free! The process is always straight forward, speedy, and efficient. They're probably the only customer service team I actually look forward to reachin... More g out to when I have an issue, because I know I'll get the help I need! Less

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
Pathetic Service and Support
Aaron Hill,
I recently created a new company and domain name.
Within a week of having it running the site is offline and support have escalated it but 24 Hours later there is no resolution.
Being an IT Manager I am well versed in what th... More e issue is however its the simple fact it is still offline 24 hours later with no resolution or end in site.
I am sorry I ever went or used them and in addition I can access there FTP manager via there Hosting Portal but cant download my site using it.
When I try to ftp to the site separate to there hosting platform it does not exist. So I effectively cant get my site to relocate it anywhere.
I will not be using them again in future nor any of my business clients.
