Appears to work fine for now. Will contact in 6 months if there's a change. Thanks.
Very good

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.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH DOMAIN.COM

I am in the process of transferring my email from Digital Space (DS) to Domain.com. When I started the process on July 1, 2021 they said it would take 24 - 48 hours to complete.
They started the process to transfer. Customer... More Support is totally clueless.They asked me to call DS to provide them with needed information, which I did. I called back at 24 hours and they said they they need more information; I called DS and got it. I had to wait another 24 - 48 hours.
I called MANY times over to the next 4 days and they said my account was pending because of problems on their backend software.
Support only responds by email and I no longer had email because they had control of my email and it was now defunct. They told me a senior support rep would call -- she/he never did.
At day 9 I gave up and called GoDaddy. I am just beginning the process so I can't comment on the results.
In summary -their support sucks, their knowledge is pitiful, and I truly believe that they lied to me repeated times.
DO NOT WORK WITH Domain.com

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
