A Small Orange Hosting Review 2017

We Tried Squeezing The Hosting Juice


A Small Orange Hosting are unlike any other hosting provider. The bright splash of orange that you see reminds you of A Small Orange days after you leave their website for the first time (believe me). 

 Founded in 2003, the under the radar hosting supplier has been a reliable solution for those wanting a slice of hosted paradise. Do they deliver or is this just a clever gimmick? we give you the low down in the hosting review. We were completely surprised with the results.

Speed 8/10
Customer Support 9/10

Detailed review of A Small Orange Hosting

A Small Orange gives traditional website hosting a splash of color. Standing out from a crowd in bright orange has proven a successful marketing tactic for A Small Orange. With a very good marketing campaign you need to have an equally complimentary product delivery to be successful. A Small Orange Hosting does deliver the goods, you're going to get a good solid hosting provider that has been in the market for 16 years and are someone you can rely on.  

They offer massive money back guarantees, whereas some well respected hosting providers are willing to offer up to 90 days, A Small Orange offer a longer than most 90 day refund, not because the service is poor but to provide more trust towards their customer. I like the forward thinking offer, confidence in your centre of excellence shows the market that you are serious about quality service. 

While these benefits are definitely big ones to consider if you're on a budget, or if you're looking for a company that cares (their datacenters are green friendly), as hosting nerds we here at Bitpak are also concerned with the technical specifications of a host, and therefore the performance they can offer.

Without question A Small Orange is committed to improving their already solid service. Utilizing a robust hosting environment suitable for all requirements means that the equipment must be administering first class quality. Using enterprise class hardware, A Small Orange unleashes their fully SSD driven storage redundant RAID 10 arrays and Intel Xeon E5 Dual Hex Core processors. There are some big competitors in the hosting space and what A Small Orange does to stand out is deliver quality services over a quality product while remaining real about how they operate as a business.   

A Small Orange flies under the radar on so many levels. Unless you have been referred by a friend or drilled down into researching hosting providers, you might of never heard of A Small Orange hosting. 


Various length money back guarantees

Amazing uptime performance.

Good tech for a host that offers so many services.

Great datacenter coverage of the U.S.


Some of their packages can't boast higher than average speeds.

Security features are somewhat basic.

Not great if your audience is outside the U.S.

Customer support gives more precadence to higher plans.

If you're looking for a solid host that offers different packages for businesses and entrepreneurs of all sizes then you'll definitely find something that works for you, whereas with some of the high-performance oriented hosts you'll likely not if you're a smaller business that's still scaling.

A Small Orange offers the following website hosting options in store.

  1. Shared hosting
  2. WordPress hosting
  3. Business hosting
  4. Reseller hosting
  5. Cloud VPS hosting
  6. Dedicated hosting
  7. Clemented hosting​

ASO offers a wide range of hosting options to their customers, but due to their philosophy – none of the hosting plans are ‘’unlimited’’ because they believe they should only provide you with the resources that you need so that you don’t have to pay for extra resources that you don’t really need or may actually never use. I can be honest with you and say transparently that I've fallen for the "unlimited" and "unmetered" plans before. With regards to these seemingly endless supply of bandwidth and resources, some of my websites have never even scratched the surface of the lowest shared hosting account limits....sadly.
