Amazingly FAST & RESPONSIVE Technical Support from Swapnil B.
Robert S. Katz,

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. :)
