Very good servers 🥰 but sometimes you need to push the support
Mark Vi,
8.8
I like the technical part of Contabo. But when it comes to support, it's just unacceptably disgusting! The response to the emails can take from 1 to 3 days! All answers have nothing to do with my questions. It is seems to be ... More copy & paste. I have no success to get any technical support within a few weeks. I want to suggest the CEO of the company to fire all these lazy asses, this will not affect the work of the company at any, I promise! Less
Amazing customer support with quick response
Eason Pan,

The customers support from A2Hosting is amazing. After I reported that my A2Hosting account was stolen, the technical support team kept following up with my case tightly, pushing my case forward fast and updating me with the ... More latest situation. The billing team responsed very fast, and they cooperated with technical team smoothly and moving my case forward very fast. Within a same day, I got my account back!!! Awsome service and quick response!!! Less

Reasonable price, but support non-existing
Rafal W.,
4.4
Got dozens of VPS and dedicated servers, but they're like a ticking bomb. If you got any problem with your server (like it didn't reboot properly), the support is almost non-existing (plenty of automated messages, and no real... More human to help). E.g. my Linux server didn't come back after reboot for no reason (neither soft or hard), their rescue system doesn't work at all, and all my support tickets are ignored. So the only/quicker way is to resign from that server and order the new server losing all your data. Apart of that, the servers are ok once they work. But be ready to lose your data due to lack of support or wait for many weeks to resolve your problem. If you need a better resilience, use a proper cloud. Less
A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account
Alexander Nachev,

A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account with 4 sites for having 2 sites that are actually not illegal and even not important for me. I didnt even receive an email for the ticket A2hosting created!!! I found out that my acco... More unt is closed when i saw a huge SERP drop on my serp tracking. And this is the second BIG seo issue. The first one was that my other 2000$ VPS account was linked with some a2dns.com domain and it was crawled by google with the content of the hosted site. Creating duplicates!!! This is outrageous!!! I feel like i am betrated, i spent so much money and i received attitude of a free hosting. Thats A2hosting for me now: A free hosting for 3000$. They just ban you when they decide and for what they decide. Less
