First I had just a cPanel account, on a shared account, then as the business got bigger, I've upgraded to a reseller account ...展开
that holds, as of writing, around 30 accounts.
All 30 accounts have excelent performance, let's encrypt (SSL), softaculous (full license, not standard/demo like others), php 7.2.2 (with alot of extensions available), all that you need to achieve for your clients the best loading time.
Lowest loading time was 688ms, tested in chrome inspector (no cache), in the capital of Romania (Bucharest); considering the site has 9 sections on the homepage and it's a Wordpress behind, the results are pretty great.
The support is not the best, had 2 major problems over the past 5 years, both were solved in decent time (2-3 days), considering it was not major for the functionality of the website itself.

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!
