Couldn't Be Happier
Frank Jones,

Pros: • Just about everything - Free domain, fair price, easy to use, friendly support.. The list goes on and on.Cons: • none really. I have been with them for over a year and am still very happy with every aspect of their ... More service. Perfect host for the Netherlands. Less
Has PHP 5.6

I use PHP 5.6 for a special shopping cart we developed and A2 Hosting is about the only place that still offers this. Great service and I love how fast the turbo is.

Combell, the sinking ship
Waldo Anonymos,
3.2
Like many others, I used to be a client of a great hosting company (Byte) that got bought by Combell. Combell then cuts off all the innovation, client service. If you dont pay attention, you pay very premium prices for servic... More es that they offer for free to new clients.
When you ask to get the free feaures for new clients; no. When asked to get a 24 hour increase for database limit' no. They force you to abandon ship. Try Cloudflare or Cloudways etc. You will be relieved and happy you didnt leave Combell years ago.
Just cheack their features:
128 MB ram
They force me to keep paying another 38 euro's for a free Let's Encrypt
Cancellation on a year basis! Terrible.

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
