Great Customer Service

A2 Hosting have hosted my website for a couple of years, I’ve never had an issue with them, absolutely brilliant, when it comes to customer service they are amazing, I’ve never dealt with such a spot on customer service team,... More They helped me with the problem in like two hours, they’re quick, polite and what would’ve been a hassle ANYWHERE else was something quick and easy with these guys, I couldn’t recommend a hosting service more.

I highly recommend this hosting service.

A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account

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
Avoid Fast Comet please.

They are constantly deceitful. Claim you can send 50mb attachments but forget to tell you they encrypt all mail and a 30mb attachments fails. Say they give you 1000mb mail space but dont tell you encrytion uses that space so ... More you only get like 650mb of space per email account. Cloudflare is constantly looping preventing you from logving in. Live chat support tries to put blame on your end and rarely solves problems, just blames then on your software or machine ( "works on my end"). Use anybody else. Less
