I have shifted from Fast Comet to A2 Hosting. The service I am getting is outstanding. Highly recommended who are looking for fast-loading hosting.

EXPENSIVE,they fall short in some features
Lauren Shivers,

If you plan to grow up your business, big commerce will charge you for your success. More sales, more charges. Another critical technical issue they have and they cannot resolve is the lack of drag and drop feature to sort it... More ems into each category, this is a KEY feature for stores with many items that need to be organized -displayed into different categories. in a fashion way. If you have an item that fits into 2 or more categories, the item will repeat the same position in those categories. cannot be arranged unless you start duplicating items. If you want to move up or down an item, you have to make a huge work on CSV format. Ridiculous. Another issue to take in the count is the lack of good apps, they do not offer the most popular. I think there are other good options out there before moving your e-commerce here and then face the issues. Once you grow up is hard to move. Less
The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
