Aspire take care me very good, help me to transfer the host , handle all things done very nice in short period. I am very satisfied to use their goods and services.

I was worked with other magento specialist hostings, more cheap and more expensive, and aspiration hosting was my finally choice with the UK hosting.
AH provide an excellent magento optimized hosting with great configurations and very balanced resources. My websites are up all time (checked with pingdom) and never works slow. All the webs (magento and wordpress) loads very fast.
The support is really great and very fast with the replies. All people are have many patience and inform you all time about the situation of your ticket.
Now I have two UK accounts and I am very happy. Good work! :-)
I am very happy with the experience and the time to first byte has been particularly good. We hosted our first magento application with Aspiration Hosting, and are most likely to do so again in the future as well. If i have to write something negative, then i would say that their pricing is a bit on the higher side .

Aspiration hosting is the best hosting company I have ever been with. Their prices are awesome but the best thing about the company is their customer support. They actually help you with any problem you may have and won't stop until they find it. The response time is usually within 1-3 hours, not days, which is great when you need support fast.
By Josh Tepe
Only buy from Aspiration Hosting if:
1) You want excellent service
2) You don't want to spend lots of money for a mediocre webhost
3) You enjoy help when you need it.
If you don't then cheatwebhostingscam.com is for you.
By James Russell
The value is great. Although I receive emails about possible downtime more than I would expect of a hosting service, I have never actually experienced these downtimes.
I wish I had known that SSH access costs more per month, and is not included in the price of standard hosting.
My largest concern was about speed. I run a magento shopping cart which requires good speed, and I have been pleased with the hosting service that Aspiration has provided thus far.
By Michael Shadoan
We moved several our sites/domains to Aspiration Hosting and have had an excellent experience with them using Magento core. The move was seamless with great customer support response time. I have not had a single issue with Aspiration unlike my previous hosting company. I would highly recommend Aspiration using Magento.

I've tried several cheaper options but came back to Aspiration Hosting. I need fast, helpful service in response to a Help Desk ticket. I've created 69 tickets so far. That's high maintenance. But I've hosted here for years (concurrently with other hosting which I have now discontinued). Aspiration fulfills beyond my expectations. Short turn-around time in response ( 7 - 15 minutes usually). And real professional courtesy in their responses 24/7. The price does hurt but I cannot afford to wait for bad service. Brilliant service Aspiration. No regrets in 5 years.
Best customer service ever. They reply almost instantly! And the service itself is truly impressive. Very nice features that you don't usually see at a price that low. Hardware, software and network is beyond expected.
Aspiration Hosting Patient and professional Services
I contacted Aspiration Hosting for pre-sale. I'm a first time hosting user and try to work out a web store, so you can imagine how many questions I got and some of them were not reasonable. I send 16 questions in 12 hours, and their CRS James replied all the questions in a very professional and polite ways. Later on, I was told he's the boss of the department. He also gave me lots of suggestions.I doubt their CRS runs 24/7 or not because Aspiration mentioned CRS not 24/7 maybe I was a lucky guy. Very good CRS deserves 5 stars.
we have 4 website/stores and i have to say aspiration hosting is BY FAR THE BEST we have ever dealt with. their service is second to none i mean i get a response even at 3-4am in around 15minutes... they are simply awesome, they are a magento partner (higher end hardware needed) the backend is great, fast with a nice easy layout. and they have helped on so many occasions if there was something we didnt know how to fix etc they walked us right through it. i have used the like of host gator and 1 and 1 etc etc and would NEVER go back to a host like those guys after this. cheap is NOT always the best. and no i dont work for them but we have a large ecommerce site that runs beautiful with them
After my search for good quality hosting, non over sellers I have decided to join with Aspiration Hosting. (March 2011)
As I said on this category here: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=418336.msg2954050#msg2954050 I would have come back with my review for the hosting company.
The transfer of my website from the previous hosting (tmdhosting.com - stay away from them) to Aspiration Hosting was very smooth. Everything went fine with no problems at all. The bandwidth is much faster and all my previous problems regarding the load of the pages were gone. Pages loads fast and so far we are happy with Aspiration Hosting.
Five months later (since last March) I didn't have to contact their support because I didn't have any problems so far. Just for one time when they were upgrading the server but it was just for a while. Some things has to be done for the best.
In a few words, I am very happy with Aspiration Hosting and I highly recommend it!
Thank you once again!
Back in 2009, I bought my first domain name, Maddenholics.com (I sold it for $150 in 2010), and was using it for a forum I had at forumotion.com. I later decided that I wanted to have more control so I moved to godaddy shared hosting. I started off with their free hosting (included with the domain and I didn’t have such a good experience with their hosting) and later moved to their paid shared hosting (which I did not like either). After that, I looked for other hosts, so I tried hosting24.com but it just was not fast enough to satisfy me and I also stumbled upon a thread discussing their affiliate program issues.
I learned more about web hosts and I later discovered what overselling was. From that point on, I decided to never go with a host that oversells. As I searched the internet, I found AspirationHosting.com which offered plans that fit perfectly with their prices to prove that they do not oversell. They had great support as well. Because they use litespeed and do not oversell, wordpress and my MyBB and IPB forums were faster than I expected them to be. I recommend them to anyone looking for cheap hosting without losing quality in the process.
I am in fact leaving them for medialayer.com because of different needs I have, but that does not mean Aspiration Hosting is bad. I will probably use them again for other small projects I have that do not require all the extra optimization and support that medialayer offers. Be sure to check out Aspiration Hosting if you’re just starting a new blog or small forum! Even though the storage and bandwidth given doesn’t seem like much, really ask yourself how much you truly need. The website will run much faster on Aspiration Hosting than on other “big names” such as Hostgator and Bluehost.
Hope I helped you guys on choosing a web host!
Love it. There are things that aren't "100%" perfect, but it is vastly superior to other hosts I've tried. My order didn't go through the first time (my fault), so I lost the 25% off. They refunded me the 25% within minutes. I had issues with my FTP client, so I asked for the install of SMF RC5, they sent me a cautionary warning making sure I was aware of the risks, which while it delayed the install, but made me realize they actually care about the customer, not just the money (money is always nice though ). Once RC5 was installed, they set up the database for me. Which was amazing. The best part though? The price. It is cheaper than a majority of hosts here, has more features, and is all around better. Best web host I've had in awhile.
I have been using SMF since 2002 .. wow ,, i feel old back then the choices for hosts were very limited, and the server side specs for hosting a forum was very low..
Skip and few years later and we have millions of host and gigs and gigs and content to share, I never saw the importance of a fully optimized SMF hosting solution until one of my forums became a high traffic website. Since my site starting to get a large number of hits i have been to three host and after a short period they just could not keep up and offer the support i needed. I decided to shop around on SMF for a host being that this is where i have my roots so i figured a good host on here should be relatively easy to find.
After a few weeks of comparing hosts and reading many reviews i made the decision to go with ASPIRATION HOSTING and one of their AspirePlus™ Shared Hosting package,.. sign up was a breeze and i even got a coupon code that gave me a 50% Discount right off the Bat,.. They had my site moved over without any issues in under 5hrs, customer support has been wonderful and quick, and that is really important to me as in this day and age if a host takes more than a few hours to respond to an issue then that will be a big turnoff to me.
Connection speeds to me site have increase drastically, to the point were my users have commented on it, on my old host my forums was not 'Slow' But now comparing to how it performs on ASPIRATION HOSTING I can definitely say it was 'Slow'
My Average page load time on old host was about 0.xxx
Now on ASPIRATION HOSTING Average time is about 0.0xx
I have been with ASPIRATION HOSTING for little under a week now and so far do good, i will return in a few months with a follow up review as to how things are going..
Would also like to say a big thanks to James, the support and information your have provided thus far is one of the main reason why i decided to go with ASPIRATION
I have two magento store on Aspiration Host and their services rock. I had to use their support for a problem on my side that had nothing to do with their hosting and their response was very fast and even on live support they were very patient to explain to me all I had to do.

This is the best web host you can go to if you're on a budget. Don't be fooled by other hosts that promise unlimited disk space and/or bandwidth and then just find an excuse to kick you out later on. AspirationHosting.com tells you what are you limits, and for those prices, it's a great deal. Their support is also great. You won't be disappointed!
Having a server with the right server setup is key. I built a magento store on bluehost with about 4000 skus. sometimes it is brutal slow, 10-15 second page load times. We started development on a new retailer with 6000 skus and new we had to move to somewhere better. Did my research, and went with aspiration hosting. These guys rock, it is shared hosting but the plan we are on limits 80 clients per machine and they specialize in magento. Support is fantastic, can’t say enough good things about them. I have signed up on their reseller program which allows me to fully rebrand their service as my own.
btw, besides being a customer, not affiliated with them in any other way.

Ok so one of my site is now located on Aspiration Hosting. The other one (that is too large but much less busy) remained on 1and1. So far I've been very impressed, especially by the loading speed. In almost one month, I only got two slow page loadings and only one extremly short downtime (about 1 minute). I also like the many more options I get via Cpanel (one thing I liked for example was how I could disable hotlinking for certain type of files, such as the music I created. This reduced bandwidth usage considerably). I feel the price is very good for the quality of the hosting and it is one of the very few non-overselling hosting provider that offers shared plans with more than 10 GB of diskspace and 100 GB of bandwidth, which is nice for people who have less experience with server stuff and don't want to get a VPS or dedicated server.
Anyway, let me show you some comparison of script execution time on this provider compared to what I got on 1and1, with mods installed:
SMF 1.1.1x regular forum page: 0.55s-0.95s with 50-100 users online in the last 30 minutes, with occasional random errors.
SMF 1.1.1x search with an index: 2.5s-6.5s (75000 posts)
SMF 1.1.1x board stats page with EzBlocks and the daily/weekly/monthly top 10 posters mod installed: 1.90s-40.50s
SMF 1.1.1x regular forum page: 0.08s-0.2s with 50-100 users online in the last 30 minutes
SMF 1.1.1x search with an index: 0.5s-0.6s (tried with 75000 posts last month, now at 85000 it's still the same)
SMF 1.1.1x board stats page with EzBlocks and the daily/weekly/monthly top 10 posters mod installed: 0.15s-1.25s
And since I moved, my forum activity seems to have increased more. I remember people trying to post while we were on 1and1 and having to click the back button everytime because of those 500 internal server error messages randomly occuring. When they occured too much, the users often stopped posting for hours or the entire day, depending if they were busy or not. Now all my users are happy about not getting anymore random errors and they say they noticed a drastic increase in page loading speed.
I'm not too good at reviewing but if you ever need to switch to a high quality hosting provider, you should really consider Aspiration Hosting! I hope they continue giving such good hosting service. Thank you a lot!
We have a dedicated server on Aspiration Hosting for more than a year. The price was very affordable for the hardware we got. We have very few IT problems, and the few we had were handled quickly and professionally. Overall we are very happy with the hardware and the service.
By Edward Rodriguez
I love aspiration hosting, their prices are great value and most importantly their customer service is great. If you have any question at all they will quickly answer you and at time even help you or solve the problem for you. I will be sticking with aspiration for a long time.
Hello, I'd like to submit a review of Aspirationhosting.com as a happy customer of them since Dec (or Oct?) 2008, and I have been extremely satisfied with them. Recently I have cancelled my subscription with them because I have moved to VPS as my linux skills increased and some of my projects requires root previliges. It took me months hesitating to leave a sound provider, but anyway I need to cut down expenses. So I have got a 2 years story... I will try to be short...
Well I came to know AH while I was looking for a Magento hosting plan in the magento community. This company was very new in business by that time, but I saw quite a few good reviews about them. Before I use their service I had very good experience with hostgator and very bad one with just another magento host. So I decided to give it a try, and it proves that was a good decision for me in the following two years.
I had quite a few support tickets with them since then, and some of them were magento specific, and they were extremely fast and helpful to me. I'd like to give a chart of my "impressions" to make the story short:
Support: 10 / 10; Especially James, a very nice person, many thanks for him.
Uptime: 10 / 10; There was one significant downtime caused by IP changing, but that is my own fault because I didn't notice the email alert from them.
Price: 10 / 10;
Speed: 10 / 10;
Magento Specific Support: 9 / 10; The only 9 given because their auto-installer in the control panel was buggy for me, but who knows because magento is highly evolving and unstable by that time. Nobody can offer 10 out 10 support for its community nature.
Overall score: 9.8/10.
I highly recomend this provider for those who wants to have stable and reliable shared hosting service, especially you want to run your own magento store. (I have only used their basic plan - Aspire I, so I would only talk about my own experience. But I assume their more powerful plans should be sound stable too.)
By the way, this is the only host that I setup affiliate for, and I do recomend to magento community members and it seems they also enjoyed it, because I found most subscribers I referred have been using their services for a long time till the moment. If you have any questions about my post, please post here.
I have been using Aspiration Hosting for about a month now and they have been great. The prices are cheap and thus great for me since I'm just getting started. They respond to support tickets very quickly, usually in a few hours, but never longer than 24 hours. My server hasn't gone down at all while I have been using them. The applications they make available could not be easier to install. I haven't really been with them long enough, nor do I have the technical expertise to make a great assessment on many of the aspects that go into web hosting, but I can tell just from their great customer service that I have chosen a great host that I will most likely stick with until my needs exceed their services, which they may never.
I have been with Aspiration Hosting for 10 months and it is not too bad. Our site is not all that fast but I think it has to deal more with the optimizations we have not done rather than the hosting environment. But their service is good and the prices are fair.
Just want to add my 2 pennies here. I have been using Magento for for about 10 months now, and did loads of research, primarily on the Magento forums then with targeted questions to a number of hosts that I had shortlisted. I am just starting out so my primary concern was a good value shared hosting package with all the features and experience to run Magento smoothly and quickly, and with good support. I went for Aspiration and, so far, I'm so pleased I did. Promise I am nothing to do with them, just a satisfied customer and wanted to write something up somewhere, as they've recently helped me resolve another support issue, albeit this particular issue was not of my making. I am amazed at how responsive they are, especially considering the relatively low cost of the package. Great value for money, support, performance, and geared up for Magento. Honestly, give them a go.
I want to add that their support and server speed (running a BIG Magento website that uses lot of ressource) is awesome. I always get my support tickets answered within 1 hour (usually within 15 minutes) and the support team is AWESOME. I would recommend Aspiration Hosting to everyone!
By Ahamed Sha
I've given Aspiration all perfect scores, simply because they offer great prices, speed, and support. I've only had one tedious issue related to not being able to save bundle products on Magento properly. The team at AH worked endlessly to find a solution, and they did. Might I add, they worked on the issue for a long time, never once getting frustrated with me as a client. My magento store is now running super smooth and I hope to have a long and prosperous relation with AH.

Being a former IT Manager and Semiconductor Engineer I am a stickler for web host providers; and I did a lot of shopping. Believe you me there are many, many choices in the world of web host providers. But is there a provider that can provide more than the rest; someone that sticks out among the masses? I have three words to say about Aspiration Hosting: excellent customer support. Customer support is such a valuable asset because whether we like it or not; we're going to have technical difficulties. Either settings, configurations, installation, or maintenance: there are so many places for something to go wrong. But in my work with Aspiration Hosting I see nothing but solid, experienced, and smooth transactions. I am in the middle of hosting several sites: one to include an intense ecommerce application; and I have no worries. I know that Aspiration Hosting has me covered.
In this day and age we are faced with many choices; especially being a business owner. But every now and then we get a break. I find my break in Aspiration Hosting.
It's during these trying times that proves a service provider worthy of their customers. Excellent pricing, excellent services, and excellent support.
Thank you AspirationHosting.com for your excellence!
Hi, To the Aspiration support crew, I just want to say - thanks for your support guys! Like most web hosting, now and again you will run into the odd glitch! However, what I have found with Aspiration Hosting is that when the glitch happened, I had immediate and professional support in sorting things out. Most of the time I have experienced poor technical support with web hosting companies. Usually this begins with bad response time, followed by clueless techies, and a need to escalate (if possible ) an issue to actually get a satisfactory solution.
With Apsiration Hosting this has not been the case. I have had many interactions with support (not just for problemsms, but also for advice), and I have found that I always without fail I have had any issue (even ones of my own making hmm) resolved quickly and professionally.
BTW, If you are hosting Magento websites, they are also great to go!
So, if you're looking for a web host for your next project, you can be sure you're making a safe decision to go with these guys!
So don't dither too long, just jump aboard!!
By Jim Marquardson
Setup was really quick. I thought I would have to spend many hours setting everything up, but it only took a fraction of the time with the tools they provided. Everything worked fine. I had read a lot of negative reviews of shared Magento hosting, but Aspiration has really optimized their service for performance. I have no complaints.
I just bought hosting plan at aspirationhosting but i'm very impressed with their service. I tried many others to host my magento like mediatemple, NEXCESS.NET and some others but all of those providers have some leaks or in case of mediatemple, it's almost impossible to run magento store on (gs) but for same money in aspirationhosting you get incredibly fast and reliable service + much faster support.. i would definitely suggest aspirationhosting to everyone!
Hi, just wanted to talk about the hosting solution I use, which is Aspiration Hosting. Today they have literally saved my life after a big mistake I made which ruined my whole site. Now, you know what's best? they solved in just 5 minutes. 5 minutes! can you believe it? So herewith I would like to recommend anyone who is looking for a host or is unhappy with his to go to aspirationhosting. they really are good. Also good prices, high download speed... for me the best and I always recommend it to everybody.
If you are looking for the best host provider.. than being with Aspiration Hosting will be the best decision you can make.
Why are they best for me?
- Excellent support (they are an example of how support should be - if you want to improve your company's support department - follow there methods of responding and how they handle tickets)
- Excellent guidance in decision making regarding applications.
- Excellent Back-up. You will value this when something bad happened by accident or by intension.
- Excellent application/website hosting. Fast!
With time i have developed trust in them and believe that they put honest effort in providing best hosting for business.

Well, my personal suggestion is Aspiration Hosting. I currently have an account with them and I do not see myself switching hosts any time soon (if ever). James (the owner) is very prompt in addressing any questions, issues, etc that you may have. He is very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The support system that he has in place is extremely fast and willing to do whatever it takes to fix the issue and keep you happy. His hosting packages are very reasonably priced and come with a load of additional features. You get unlimited databases, subdomains, email accounts, FTP accounts, parked domains, addon domains, and mailing lists. The lowest priced package has 1GB storage and 20GB bandwidth. SMF runs flawlessly on his servers. The php sendmail() function is enabled and works great on his servers. He doesn't oversell his servers, meaning that he doesn't cram as many accounts as possible on each server. This means that the chance of you getting server busy errors is slim to none. You also have access to Installatron (a program that auto installs programs from a list available). I have 8 apps installed with Installatron and James doesn't restrict the amount of apps you are allowed to install using Installatron (some hosting companies do). The list of available apps is long and includes some really helpful apps.
If you cannot tell, I am extremely happy with Aspiration Hosting's service.
By Ronald Lee
Been with Aspiration Hosting for just a week and my sites hosted with them unfortunately breached the cpu use. But thanks to the helpful admin support, they didn't suspend my account and left me hanging, I was notified about the issue and given time to rectify the problem. Support is fantastic and fast. My sites load faster compared to my previous host. Price range for the package is reasonable. I would gladly be their customer for a long time.
I am writing this because I am very pleased with the service I have received with Aspirations Hosting! It all started while I was on the SMF and asked the community for advise on a reliable, trustworthy hosting company. That is when I met James. James provided very detailed information for me about his hosting services and answered my questions completely and in a timely fashion. I decided to purchase hosting service form Aspiration Hosting and had access to my cPanel almost immediately.
I had some issues with my domains dns, but with the hard work of Aspiration Hosting's support staff, the issue was corrected with a couple of days. I have had a couple other issues with things not working properly, such as email piping which caused a bounce back error email. Every issue that I have had has been corrected within a 24-48 hour period! You can't even get that good of service form a cable company!
I have never met James as a person, but just form talking with him on the forums, I feel like he is a very honest, nice person who is willing to go out of his way to help his clients have a great experience with his hosting service.
The server that I am hosted on is extremely fast. I know people who two to three times as much as I do and have slower server speed than I do! I really like Installatron, a auto installer for applications, and have already utilized multiple applications from it.
To sum everything up, I am being hosted by a great company run by a great person!
Aspiration Hosting, has been the best host I have found yet, their service is reliable, support is second to none, and my overall experience has been wonderful thanks Aspiration Hosting, you truly are an amazing host!
Really very good service!! no matter if you write them on sunday at 5:00 that they will reply you in a while..! I have to accounts with them and more than 20 domains. The best service I have tried ever!
By "king kratos"
Thank you for that. Thus far, James (and his support staff, and company) has taken great care of me! I am happy with my choice and greatly appreciate everyone's feedback about good hosts. Seeing as I am on a strict budget as I get my business off the ground, I think Aspiration Hosting is the best bet for me. And, so far, they have been great. The features, options, support, and overall customer care is AWSOME!
By Jeremy Huang
I hate writing reviews because I'm such a lazy person. But this is a review that I must write because of the exceptional support I have received from the team particularly, James. I have tried a lot of other hosts big and small but nothing compares to my experience here. Service is easy to use, fast, and support is just nothing short of amazing. If you think you had great support then you got to try to AH. In terms of price and support I truly think you can't beat AH. Low price is meaning less is support is no good. With AH it's like have the best deal and not get led down.
James, keep up the good work!
Your #1 Fan.
Great service and support. Helped me solve problems, move sites and overall is a great partner for my reseller hosting needs. Good hardware, data-carriers and service. Support is always available 24/7.
There are plenty of cheap hostings every where. However, as a shop owner, quality and service are extremely important as well! Aspiration Hosting is the one won't disappoint you. James help me to solve quite a few problem during my shop set up. Well down service. They seem new, but absolutely can be a trusted partner!
By Ahamed Sha
really remarkable service. they go all out to help out whenever you are facing probs. great great service. i have been with a few popular web host but the support and ease of use is nowhere near to aspiration.
All setup with AH and we are very happy. The AH team has been very helpful and patient, we can't say enough bout how great it is to have their support. Thanks SMF for helping to get us hooked up with a great host and thanks AH for taking on the challenge. Cheers :)
By Owen H
Aspiration Hosting has fulfilled all my requirements with flying colors. I needed a fast Magento host that offered a reseller account with good support. This was harder than I thought it would be to find, but AH has some great shared WHM packages for little guys and heavy hitters all at reasonable prices. I also like how they don't oversell their services or put unreasonable restrictions on accounts. Most providers will "offer" you unlimited everything and then make sure you'll never be able to use it. Perhaps best of all is AH's knowledgeable support staff has continually gone above and beyond to help me understand things and fix problems. Fix problems that were my own doing at no cost even.
I would recommend AH to anyone! Round the clock support, US datacenter, competitive pricing. What more could I ask for? I am a picky eater and have dropped 4 hosts in the last 4 months, but can't find any reason to look any further than AH.
If you go with AH don't even ask if they will take your gratuity for providing such stellar support because they won't. I already tried.
By Jeremy Eissler
I searched high and low for a good shared Magento host. Although there are some Ah had reseller accounts that were reasonably priced. After hosting there for a few months I have to say their speed, support and service are stellar. James and others have gone out of their way to help me figure everything out from Mage to Ssl's and Whm. I tried out half a dozen or so other hosts and have never received the level of service they are able to provide. I would recommend them to anyone any day for anything, but especially Magento hosting. Optimized Mage hosts with Whm capabilities are rare to find and their level of support is certainly rare also.
I have found out that just because a hosting provider advertises 24x7 or phone support doesn't mean it is any good. I found my solution with Aspiration Hosting. I'm only writing this because I was surprised to not find any reviews of them on here. I come to this site a lot and had to share my experience with Ah
I have been with and tested my share of hosts now. I am still testing 3 others, but find them all falling short of AH's service and support. I've been with AH for over a month now and it just keeps getting better. It's easy for a provider to say "we go above and beyond" and another to actually do it. James and others at AH continue to provide stellar service at a fair price. And even refuse to take my gratuity after helping me through problems that I have created.
I am very picky as I've dumped 4 other hosts already and it is very rare to find a company that can do what AH is doing. I can only hope it will last forever! Thanks AH... You are my hero!
Just to state the facts… I am not affiliated with any hosting company and was recently in the same boat of testing, researching and testing some more. I am happy to say I think I found my Mage solution in Aspiration Hosting. I have only been with them a short time, but wanted to post my initial impression and experiences. First off I needed an affordable shared reseller package with WHM which was hard to find from an optimized Mage host. AH has flexible packages which was a big deal for me. Speed was also a concern. I had my dev environment set up on HostMonster/BlueHost which was sufficient, but not nearly fast enough for a production environment.
On the question of speed I was surprised when switching the production site over to AH my initial (browser) page load times on 768mbps connection went from (8-10 sec. on HostMonster/Bluehost) to (2-3 sec. on Aspiration). HM was also sluggish at best on cart navigation and add to cart functions. AH is practically instant.
I had many many questions for AH before and after signing. Everything checked out so I signed and they gladly helped me with everything from setting up accts and packages in WHM to Mage Q’s on db’s and optimization. I am somewhat new to Magento so I don’t have it all down yet, but with a little help my client’s site is now up. The folks at AH where quicker and more concise with live chat and a ticket system than I thought possible. Forget same day response; how about same hour! I was impressed to say the least. I also considered both Crucial and SH. In my case I ultimately went with AH because of the good reseller (WHM+cPanel) packages, but would recommend them to anyone who needs to host Mage.
Thats my 4 cents. Hope this helps.

So far my experience with Aspiration Hosting has been stellar. I was searching for a solution for my magento and I am so happy I went with Aspiration. I shopped and looked at maybe 10 other hosting companies, some were just as fast as Aspiration, but I knew without service they were still second rate. A few others had great service, but the prices were a bit steeper with speeds that were slower. I did a few website speed pings of people who used aspiration and the competitors. Aspiration was faster and I heard about the service from James, the big boss who seemingly never sleeps and answers all your questions to completion.
Beast service and speed go hand in hand,
I think Aspiration hosting is the best hosting solution for Magento ecommerce site. Not only installation they helped me to integrate 2CO payment gateway and very prompt support. Their estimated time for loading page is smooth. That means it is faster than other hosting service. If you want to host Magento you should choose Aspiration Hosting without any doubt.

...But, in answer to your question, I ended up at Aspiration Hosting and what a difference. They have been, hands down, the best hosting experience I have ever encountered. I am developing two e-commerce sites (both controlled from the same backend) using two of their inexpensive shared hosting accounts and it has been a breeze (knock on wood). In all honesty, both sites are much faster than they were over at SimpleHelix (as fast or faster than most demos I’ve seen elsewhere) and the price is much less. It is very rare that it takes more than two or three seconds for a page to load.
Support tickets have usually been answered within ten minutes and always within no more than an hour. And the answers have been spot on accurate in dealing with whatever issue I have had. Both sites are very highly modified and using Installatron for “one-click” installations and upgrades (I’ve done three upgrades so far on each site) has gone smooth as silk with absolutely no problems (knock on wood again).
I am not one to generally go around hawking someone else’s wares, but when a company is doing it right, I think people should know. I suppose it’s possible that others may have had a different experience with them, but I highly doubt it, and if so, I have not heard about it. These guys are good, extremely conscientious, and very inexpensive. I highly recommend them.

I have been with Aspiration Hosting for a couple of months now, and I think they are a top line host! All of my trouble tickets have been answered with in a few minutes, and which surprised me, because they didn't even pertain to Aspiration Hosting service they were for third party scripts, so support is AWESOME! I have not had a single second of downtime since I have been with Aspiration, my site loads nice and fast, which shows me that Aspiration has some very nice fast and stable servers! Thanks Aspiration Hosting, I plan on being with you indefinitely at this point.
By Naseer Ahmad
Thanks to James from Aspiration, very happy about their support response. We had recently issue with SSL and this guy resolved issued within few responses. I will recommend Aspiration hosting with 5 stars.

I have been using Aspiration Hosting for 4 months now and have nothing but praise for the professional service they conduct. I am more than happy with their reliability, support and cost (even with converting to the Au dollar). In particular, their support has been excellent, I have submitted several tickets, each of which has been answered and resolved in 20 minutes or less. I initially signed up because Aspiration Hosting supported Magento which they installed for me quickly and smoothly. I have already recommended them to friends.
Over 3 months use, and I am extremely happy with them. I am on the shared plan, and I got a testing ecommerce site using magento. The speed is average, and I did not experice any down time. In fact AH once notified me about a server down time and proposed credit, but I did not realize it until days later, so I missed the allowed hours to utilize the credit. I think it is nothing important and appreciate their notification, which proves their honesty in business. I think there are few reasons that probably make me continue to stay with them in a fairly long time. 1. unlimited features for limited budget, with decent storage & bandwidth, which is extremely favorable if you are newbie to magento or you have multiple projects to test; 2. really serious and helpful support that never kicks the ball around; 3. fairly reliable installer will save you tons of time & puzzles if you want to use magento( BTW I want to say you MUST always create backup of magento DB in the admin panel along with full magento file structure because I once experienced failure to restore DB dump created with its installer backup tool).

I just recently joined AH and so far my experience has been outstanding. I've had a couple of issues with domain transfers, email set-up etc, etc. but they were all handled very efficiently and promptly. Frankly, this has been the best customer service I've ever had from a host - bar none! Thanks James. It makes me feel comfortable with my choice of host and I am looking forward to a long and successful relationship.
I had many different choices when searching for a web host, for this particular project. Many of which i almost signed up with, while some i disregarded right away. After a long search and a few decisions i signed up with Aspiration Host. I read a few reviews about them which had told me a bit of the information i needed to know.
Before signing up i asked many questions which were answered within a quick time frame by James. Each answer was precise and gave me the information i needed.
The sign up process was easy and quite quick and i had received confirmation of my payment right away.
After signing up i began setting everything up, though ran into a problem concerning my domain. The error was not on Aspiration Host's side of the ball it was my internet service provider problem. During that time i was given help and advice on what i could do in the mean time as well as trying to fix the problem.
During my time with Aspiration Host so far, i have sent in many support tickets which were always answered within an hour or 2, some withing a few minutes, which i do believe is quite an achievement, especially from a company that is still small and may not have the employee size to answer questions right away.
The Aspiration Host community and company in whole, is very friendly. They are not a company that keep going just for the money, they seem to enjoy their job and enjoy helping others.
I highly recommend Aspiration Host as the company next time you need a reliable host.
I hope my future with Aspiration Host is a good one.

I've only been using Aspiration Hosting for a couple of weeks, but so far it's been very good. The support is phenomenal. The owner has responded to my questions himself most of the time, and always in a very timely and polite manner. Have had no downtime yet, and the speed is very impressive for shared hosting.
I read your post at the time I needed to leave my existing host because of poor support. Technical support is important to me. Especially I need to be responded to within 12 hours. I had no idea which other host would be good and have only tried NZWEBIT. I had to leave as they would not answer help desk tickets in 7 days! I noticed the response from Asiration Hosting on this thread and have moved there. I have a way better account with unlimited subdomains - something I didn't have before. They responded to all my requests real fast. Within 3 minutes sometimes. 20 minutes at other times. The first Help Ticket I was entering guessed my question and provided a solution before I sent the ticket. I have never had an answer to this problem from my former Host. So I'm real impressed with Aspiratiom. I've only been with them a few weeks yet I'm very pleased with their service, price, support and they seem to be reliable.
After a lot of tryouts at my old hosting party i decided to go to Aspiration Hosting. The Hosting works fast. I had 2x a problem caused by myself. They have fixed them for me both within a few hours. Now I've Upgraded my account to install more shops. Thank You Very much for the GREAT and FAST SERVICE.

Now in days nothing beats excelente support. Its been only a few weeks since I moved from my old host because the poor support and I'm very happy si fare. Also its a big plus that the guys there know Magento and their servers compatibility is great, also fine speed. David

If you are looking for a Magento commerce host, Look No Further. Aspiration Hosting is the best I have found for Magento with excellent speed and prompt support. James L went out of his way for a few hours getting a Magento bug workaround solution working for me. Most host would just tell you it's not our software or the like. Keep up the great work James :-) Now if they would only support a .Net site ;-)
By Bjorn Heg
I really like this host, they are fast have good support and beyond expectation they changed some php.ini settings so my scripts would work. They provide good backup options even for your sql databases. Fast ftp access and good pricing plus 24 hour support. I can highly recommend this host.
By Luis Alberto Saulny Gorostieta
Aspiration hosting is the best Magento and hosting I have ever tried in 12 years of developing software, they have a team that really want to help you and create good business relationships... I like the service and the support.!!
Magento is poorly supported from its community, and I sign up for AH partly because I hope I can get support when in trouble. Now I really like this new hosting company. Had two tickets with them and the support is good. James himself often takes care of the support ticket. Price is reasonable for me, and I look good on their upgrade options, like dedicated IP, SSL as well as more space and bandwidth @ reasonable price. Growing business will allow more flexibility in budget, but the key is painless upgrade. Keep up the good job!

I am relatively new to this but have worked with a couple of hosts prior. I decided I want to try Magento for a shopping cart and had trouble with two other providers before i found Aspiration. They were great in getting in installed for me and even helped with questions I had while setting it up. I am still in the process of setting up my content but it is working great.
I really appreciated the help.
If you just want good cheap shared linux based web hosting then I would highly recommend Aspiration Hosting. For about $55 US/yr you get 1GB of storage and unlimited domains, email accounts, etc.. and the hosting is fast! Plus the level of support is amazing.. eg. I needed them to recompile php to add web services support and they did it in under 8 hours!
I have no affiliation with them, just a happy customer. :-)
I recently implemented a Magento site. It is not quite ready for business yet but I am getting close. You can view it here http://www.modsnroses.com I was able to install & configure it without the help of the expensive commercial support packages they sell even though my technical & php skills are somewhat limited. I had a big problem with processing & page load time on a shared GoDaddy Deluxe hosting account that works just fine for several of my Joomla sites. Apparently Magento is a bit of a resource hog. It was sooo sloooow it was very painful. I shopped around & tried the cheapest shared hosting account offered by http://www.aspirationhosting.com & my Magento site is fast as lightning! Aspiration Hosting supports Magento and has very good customer support.
Well,I need to mention during my search of a new host the most informative live chat representative was Dominic M. from Aspiration Hosting. I find their first month discount policy no good of use though they were so polite and very responsive and even though I asked so many questions (I'm a newbie) they (Dominic M.) kept up with me and answered all my questions with the same polite way. I recommend them to everyone esspecially for Magento. Thank you all and I would like to hear your experiences with them as well.

Very reasonable pricing. I had a shared hosting account with one of the major web hosting companies. It was fine for several Joomla sites I have. I started using Magento which is a bit of a resource hog. The page load time was absolutely terrible. I had to switch hosting companies. I thought I would give Aspiration Hosting a try. You should visit my site! It has extremely fast page load time. I am so happy with it. It is a joy to work on now I don't have to wait forever for the server to accept the changes I submit. Thanks Aspiration Hosting!
I just want to say I love my new shared hosting account with Aspiration Hosting! I had a customer's Magento site hosted on a GoDaddy shared hosting account. The load time of the pages was extremely slow. It was impossible to work on the site, it was so slow. There was no way we could go live with that kind of performance/page load time. After some shopping around I thought I would try Aspiration Hosting. I made the right decision. My Magento sight is lightning fast now! It is now a joy to work on with this huge improvement in response time. I can't believe the difference. I wish I had switched a couple of weeks ago when I first started developing the site. You can visit my store here www.modsnroses.com It is not finished yet but I am getting pretty close. Thanks Aspiration Hosting!
Bonjour, I would like to share my experience on my lastest webhost for Magento. I was with ASPIRATION HOSTING and was very pleased with them. I find it was much faster than other shared hosting I have tried previously. For my need, the basic plan at 4.99 (1 GB) was enough, but they have larger space plans too.
Four other important points for me :
1) They have monthly payable subscriptions which for trying out is very useful
2) Also, since I am technically impaired grin, They installed Magento at no extra cost. (I had to pay 40 Euros with another company (Netaxo)
3) Customer service: it was fast & efficient communication.
4) The admin interface to manage your account is user friendly,
Finally, if for any reason you need to terminate your account (I had to terminate mine, because I chose to not use Magento no more), they will answer you fast, no fuss and will refund rapidly the portion not used.
So… All that being said, I recommend them greatly.

It's been about 2 months now I think with aspiration. I still haven't had ANY problems with anything. The server seems very reliable. I'm running 3 domains on one account - they all load quickly, have had no downtime and were easy for me to transfer there using cpanel. One is a small SMF forum with a few mods. One is a very graphics heavy website. And the third is a wordpress blog.

I like most about this hosting company is that they provide near instant support. Whenever I have any difficulties they will support me with all their effort. The pricing is also very reasonable. Keep it up!
By Sandor Borcsok
I have very positive experience with this hosting company. They provide real 24/7 support with prompt replies and solution oriented approach. The price is very competitive and the service quality is impressive for me. My site is not on production phase yet therefore I can't tell anything about performance issues, currently I'm satisfied. The hosting plans designed for scalability, if your business needs to grow you'll find the right plan for you.
