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!

So I not only renewed the plan but also upgraded to high level plan at $45/month. However the support is getting worse and worse, high priority tickets are not answered in time. Email server refused my connection now and then, which is never fixed at the root. When it happens, my tickets usually takes hours and hours to get a short response asking more info, which has been in the original ticket because of many times of previous occurrence.
Good speed, bad support trends down. Moved my website away although there are 7 months of hosting left (worth over $300).
