Best DNS Service I've used
Donovan Daniels,

This is the best DNS service I've used, many record types, cheap plans (also free plans), many Name Server locations, Private Name Servers, affordable personal name servers, and more!
Outstanding support from A2 Hosting

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.
It is so refreshing to see this level of customer focus from A2 support . My renewal with A2 is not in question ! Many thanks A2 support team

Terrible support and service does not work
Ernest Murry,
2.0
Attempted to switch our DNS servers over to CloudDNS. Told support several times before moving over that their servers were not properly responding to DNS requests. Support was very clear that it was because I hadn't update... More d the NS records. So I trusted them and pulled the trigger. Moved over the name server and all websites went down. Support said they had escalated the issue to 'admins' and after 24 hours of downtime and no response, we pulled the plug on the service.
In short: service doesn't work and support is useless. Do not use this company.

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
