4SP. I have found both their support and hosting to be first class! It's great to know I have a team of Wordpress experts behind me to support me as I continue to launch more and more sites. Over time I am recommending all my customers move their sites over, it really is a no brainer! Thanks 34SP, awesome!

or 3 months. Never experienced any issue with their service. I've monitored my website uptime with Jetpack 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!
We had the same bad experience described below. The support staff seem to be on autopilot and nobody takes responsibility. Ev...展开
en when we brought the problem to the attention of the Director, it was completely dismissed and passed right back down to the same support staff for more slow, obtuse questions. The technical faults were disappointing - being left waiting for 3 weeks without email is not acceptable - but the way it was handled, with constant attempts to blame us and wriggle out of dealing with it, was truly appalling. We ended up having to move all our sites to another host in the middle of a very inconvenient time - we were just getting nowhere with 34SP. They used to be very good, and we often recommended them to others over the years, but prices went up and service quality went down. Now they have completely lost their way. Best avoided.
Can't be summarised any better than this:
"Constant technical issues and the engineers take days to get back to you. They never concede that anything is their fault when it always is. No-one takes responsibility for anything and complaints just get moved about and nothing is resolved. I would not recommend them to anyone."

pany since 2015. Each time I've engaged with Small Orange, I always walk away annoyed and frustrated. It seems such a self-centrist business with zero regard for customer experience. Simply awful. I'm looking for a new host.
