    Hi kids,

    Has anybody used A Small Orange - A Small Orange - Web Hosting, Software and more! - as their webhost? I'm looking into the possibility of getting either the super or large hosting package - A Small Orange - Web Hosting - Plans - as you can see both are very affordable and feature rich.

    I sent their support an email asking a few questions about their package and they were very prompt in their response.

    They use cPanel, Exim Mail Server, PHP4.4/5.2 and MYSQL5 as their server technology.

    The thing i like most about them is the fact that they seem very proactive in their market.

    Does anybody have any expierence off hand with their service?

    I have heard some good things about them but could never get an account. Apparently they only allow a specific number of new customers each day, although its been months since I tried.

    It's just the sense you get from reading about them on their website and hearing things from others. Things like the wiki - ASOwiki: Welcome to the ASO wiki! - add something extra to the community element.

    Interesting, I did not know that.

    I have always seen their name pop up as recommended host so they have had some very good publicity. I see their site got a face lift and from the looks of it they are accepting customers again.

    One thing though is that these guys look like a reseller more than anything else. I see no mention of their data centre or their hardware setup. Personally I prefer to cut out the middle man and deal directly with the host.

    I've seen a couple of the US hosting companies doing that.

    I'm not sure how well it works unless you have a particular type of userbase

    Yeah, a great model alright. Oh I want to be 1 of the select few that's allowed in to your service. It works though. I want to change hosts, I might look into these guys...
