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 decided to create a claim in Paypal, and it was approved, to revert one of the charges. Suddenly, i cannot access to my applications hosted in the VPS. I thought it was a maintenance window so i tried to access the management portal in servercheap.net. For my surprise, my account didn't exist.
Then, i contacted servercheap.net through his contact form, and half an hour later i got this email:
Your server has been deleted and your account closed. We do not do business with customer who open paypal payment disputes.

What kind of company is this? For filing a claim in Paypal they automatically deleted my server and my account, without considering the data i have there or applications. Why didn't they try to contact me first to solve the issue? If there was a misunderstanding i would happily reverted the claim or pay back if needed. This is the worst service i've received ever by a VPS company. I will never do business with them again. That's an unprofessional way to proceed. Delete customer information without letting customer know about it.
ASO was AMAZING in 2010. Great service, helpful people, pleasant interactions, and then all of a sudden in 2012 they started ...展開
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.
