Amazingly FAST & RESPONSIVE Technical Support from Swapnil B.
Robert S. Katz,
10
This morning I was terrified as I was checking up on our organizational website. After hitting enter, I received an immediate WordPress error. Not having anywhere close to the level of technical skills needed to resolve thi... More s, I reached out to my development team. No members were immediately available. Knowing that I was expecting critical partners to be on our website any second, I reached out to my hosting company A2 as a last-ditch attempt to bring our site back from the dead. Even though I knew it was most likely not its fault at all, the A2 support team was willing to investigate. One of A2's terrific Support Professionals, Swapnil B., came back to me within seemingly seconds...amazingly with a full resolution. There was a plug-in that went rouge. Swapnil B. corrected the issue right away - and we are now back in business.
Thank you so much to A2 for all of its amazing technical assistance..., especially from Swapnil B. :)

The worst e-mail and domain hosting service
Hakan Esin,
3.6
We have been using their services for a while. Our e-mails and domain are going down all of a sudden without any notice, any apology, or any information. 2 times in the same week, our whole corporate e-mails went down, and th... More e first one last for 4 days. We get no explanation and no timeline other than their saying "we are performing emergency maintenance". This is totally unacceptable. They do not know anything about professionalism. Call center is only accessible during US working hours. Live chat is NOT LIVE, you have to leave a message!!! And when you are even able to chat by chance, all you get is "We are performing maintenancae". Less
The worst service ever, stay away
