I've been using 34SP for my website hosting and also my clients hosting for well beyond a decade. Their support and ticket response time is second to none, and in my industry I speak to a lot of hosts .. so many .. I will nev... More er not recommend the team at 34SP Less

OUTSTANDING SUPPORT! As a complete novice I struggled to understand what was required and my frustration was getting the better of me. Evanjaline, worked her 'magic' and got everything sorted for me. Very few companies provid... More e this level of support.

Best Avoided
Bob Weissfeldner,

We had the same bad experience described below. The support staff seem to be on autopilot and nobody takes responsibility. Even when we brought the problem to the attention of the Director, it was completely dismissed and pas... More sed right back down to the same support staff for more slow, obtuse questions. The technical faults were disappointing - being left waiting for 3 weeks without email is not acceptable - but the way it was handled, with constant attempts to blame us and wriggle out of dealing with it, was truly appalling. We ended up having to move all our sites to another host in the middle of a very inconvenient time - we were just getting nowhere with 34SP. They used to be very good, and we often recommended them to others over the years, but prices went up and service quality went down. Now they have completely lost their way. Best avoided.
Can't be summarised any better than this:
"Constant technical issues and the engineers take days to get back to you. They never concede that anything is their fault when it always is. No-one takes responsibility for anything and complaints just get moved about and nothing is resolved. I would not recommend them to anyone."

They're terrified of DMCA complaints and will ban you without warning!

HostAdvice note: A2 Hosting never claimed to be a one that doesn't respect DMCA notices, and they acted appropriately.
One DMCA complaint and they'll ban your entire account no matter how many domains are hosted on it.
They c... More laimed one of my websites offers illegal services, but they didn't mention which one, which was absolutely a false claim. It was a DMCA notification from Corsearch that made them ban my entire account of 30+ domains without any notification and a "Thanks!" at the end of the email! Less
