I’m a veteran ex-developer who has hosted with a few companies: fast comet, wooservers, and site ground. All are good, but le...展开
ap switch is better. With fast comet, they use crappy nginx as their webserver. For people who don’t do anything with their sites, it’s not a problem. But if you’re PHP-heavy on the backend, use any webserver that doesn’t handle PHP requests natively (like nginx), and you’re asking for trouble. Wooservers is good, but their prices are now stupid. I had no problems with site ground, but after the initial term is up, they also want stupid money. For the price they quoted me for 1 year, it cost me less for 3 years of service with leap switch and I got a dedicate IP on a shared server! I’ve been with them for over a month and have yet to see the site down. When running a business, this is by far top priority. Although they are based in india, they have servers in the U.S.

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!

nd the issues remain unsolved even after multiple intimations.
3. Their Pagespeed just doesn't work, which they promised that it does.
4. No Refund of money in your account even when you don't like their service.
ASO was AMAZING in 2010. Great service, helpful people, pleasant interactions, and then all of a sudden in 2012 they started ...展开
going down. I realized they got acquired and it all makes sense now. They were run into the ground to cut corners and make a profit. The service got outsourced to India, the simple navigation of the site is out the window, and the site got FAR less reliable than it once was. Such a shame.
