Default ASmallOrange, inexpensive hosting

I saw a strong recommendation for shared hosting from asmallorange.com today, so I looked it up on Web Hosting talk and found mostly very positive comments — for its shared hosting services. It has a $25/year plan and a $5/month plan, both with modest bandwidth and space (but probably adequate for most personal sites).

Offers PHP 4 and MySQL as needed, even for these small plans. Includes cPanel, Fantastico, POP3 or IMAP e-mail, and Webalizer/AW Stats. Users say it responds to help tickets within minutes, and that forum software runs speedily.

It might be a good alternative for a GoDaddy site. GoDaddy offers a lot more space and traffic allotment, but gets slammed all the time for poor (dramatically slow) hosting support. (Raves for its domain registration, generally, however.)

The only negative comments I did see about ASO were for its virtual private servers, which are supposedly slated for a new data center by May 2006 but in the meantime have a lot of downtime.

Just thought I’d mention it. Rarely find a host with such happy customers.
