Excellent Hosting for WP
Kevin Anger,

I've been using flywheel for a couple years now. They are have unmatched service, support and sales! They continue to grow and the service continues to get even better (if that's possible). If you have a question, they are on... More top of it, every single time! I can't say enough good things about Flywheel! Less
Fast SSDs and automatic updates
Desmond Suarez,

I have used several different hosting services over the past decade. I have not liked any of the other services until I found A2. I can't stop telling other people about how much I like the automatic updates, fast SSDs, great... More customer service, and automatic backups. High-five! Thank you for being the coolest hosting service out there. Keep being cool. 😎 Less

I have scored accurately based on my experience. I want to like this service, the features are great and user friendly however the service is not reliable.
The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone

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
