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!
I had previously used a2hosting for wordpress and it worked great. However, recently I tried to move my node/express website ...展开
from heroku to a2 and it got as bad as it could get. First of all It says it costs $4.90/month, but when purchased it, I had to, for someone reason, pay $7, thought I initially thought it'll be alright, later I realized It was only for the 1st month, and after that I'll have to pay $13/ month. That's straight cheating, I would've sued them if it had happened in a larger scale. And I think it's currently true for php/wordpress hosting as well.
Furthermore, documentation for node is very very bad, I was initially very gald as someone was giving node hosting at reasonable price, but hey nothing is free.
