Good Clear Support and No-nonsense Hosting
Loretta Wollering,
9.6
Awesome help ticket service - it was clear, timely, easy to understand, and USEFUL. Best. I really never had a problem with them. Their knowledge base is good, and anytime I fill out a help ticket, I get useful, easy to un... More derstand advice and follow-ups. Faster speed and easier to deal with. Not the cheapest, but definitely better prices than lots of other hosting out there. And very decent service. Less

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone
Kurt Gilek,

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
