Weaknesses: No customer service, extreme poor response, server errors they can not fix
Details: I have 7 sites hosted with discountasp.net. The server gave an application error when we did builds.
We they never fixed the server app error and took then 5 hours to fix the problem. FIVE HOURS! We run a heavily trafficed e-commerce site that was down for 5+ hours. Do you think we got a phone call or email in those five hours...NO! We sent 6 emails and 2 phone calls and 1 fax. They never responded. We lost hundreds of dollars. Now... we have an SSL problem because they are moving our site off the troubled server... I've again sent 3 emails... 1 phone call and another fax... and still losing money. Discountasp.net got too big to their own good! Bail if you get the chance... dont have anything go wrong with the server because you will pay a huge price! BTW: this is the 4th time this has happened to our site in the past year. They never fixed the bug on the server.
Review Based On: 24 Month(s) of usage
|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: 1. The bug that is affecting this site is an ASP.NET bug with no known solution. 2. This incident happened during the holidays and during a time when we experienced some internal system hardware failure (rare but it can happen). Admittedly there were some delays in response compared to other times. We have already conducted post-mortem analysis to improve our response times in this situation. 3. We do not call customers who curse and spam support. 4. After two years of hosting and seven websites with us, this customer concludes that DiscountASP.NET has no strengths and poor customer support. The customer has posted these comments and yet still uses us for hosting. The reader can make up their own decision as to the helpfulness of this review. |

||Strengths: Excellent Control Panel, Excellent correspondence with the client
Weaknesses: Multi-Domain hosting
Details: ** Lots of components, excellent service and control panel features. Up until now (10/2005) no downtime experienced!!
** Lots of improvements has been made such as bandwidth & disk space increase, control panel updates, new components etc since my membership -> Dedication to customer orientation and focusing on needs.
** Support response times are reasonable. Could be improved a little.
**Managing your account is quite easy let it be only the hosting account or the SQL Server management.
** I will have to agree with one of the guys who commented before about the discountasp.net web site. It does look a little complicated however, this complication is not reflected to their services which is all you want after all.
** The issue which I appreciate the most is their honesty. They are stating clearly what they offer and what they don't.
** It seems like I will be with them for a long long time.
** Keep up the excellent work guys.

End to Hell?

||Strengths: Support, ease of use control panel
Weaknesses: none so far, I'll keep you updated if anything comes up.
Details: After months of Hell driving through 3 different ASP hosts, slow, off and tons of errors and sites down, it seems we finally found the fastest most reliable ASP host.
Tech support is FAST and GOOD, don't be concerned about them not having telephone number, they are taking care of all issues in no time.
Try them and you wont be disappointed... we are on with them for 30 days and all is cool and great so far.
Count on me to keep you posted for good or wrong!
I would recommend, however, a different web analisys software, the livestats.xsp lacks required important information and settings flexibility. Also it is annoying as it request 3 long passwords every few minutes to log in.

DiscountASP is the only way to go

||Strengths: Great customer support
Details: I use them to host a community starter kit for our homeowners association. It has NEVER,EVER crashed or been unavailable in the 1.5 years its been up. They do so much free stuff for you its insane: free controls, free asp2.0 test accounts, free setup and installation of CSK. And they've put up with my noob questions. They just rock. Period.

I haven't found any better...
Written by Steve Blosser from Salina, KS (Thursday, June 02, 2005)
Writer is with: http://www.programsupport.net
||Strengths: Pretty much all of it.
Weaknesses: No Online Site/File Manager
Details: It scares me a little because, I haven't found anything wrong with these guys. If you find a less expensive service (this one is cheap), faster servers with the most current software updates and more free to use controls, let me know. I seriously doubt you will find anyone that compares. You can't please everyone and you should "discount" any negative reviews, because if you want true Windows hosting with the latest technology, fast and and sold servers discountASP is worth a really hard look. Their name should be QUALITYASP.

Solid Reliable Effective
Written by Mark N from Ottawa, Canada (Tuesday, May 03, 2005)
Writer is with: http://www.redshirtstudios.com
||Strengths: Lots of .Net controls, fast setup, solid uptime, excellent communication
Weaknesses: MySQL/MS SQL & subdomains are add-ons, no multi-domain hosting on same account
Details: I was a customer for a year. Moved to a Linux platform to merge a few seperate accounts into one. Recently I started having a business requirement for ASP.Net and I didn't hestitate. I signed up again right away. DiscountASP.Net might not be the prettiest website themselves but that's not that important. They've offer great services and above all excellent customer service. I've been with (and had clients with) a lot of hosts over the years and DiscountASP.Net is easily among the best Microsoft-based host I've dealt with.
