Great so far
Filip Furár,

I switched from noez.de (avoid them) and was looking for another budget hosting. I remembered I have seen HETZNER before and decided to give it a go. So far, it has been outstanding. My tickets get resolved quickly, replies a... More rrive few minutes or hours later, even on weekends or evenings. The dashboard is very clean looking, I would say it is the easiest I have ever used, while still having most of the features you will ever need.
From what I heard, they are really strict on accepting new customers, but I did not experience any issues with that, but hopefully, they can adjust their automatic fake account detection in the future and avoid like 95% of the negative reviews they receive.
I did not experience any attacks on my site, so I cannot comment on the protection and I do not break their rules, so I am not sure how quickly they terminate these malicious users, as many here try to defend themselves.

Reliable with fast service

Have used A2 Webshosting for years and their hosting service is very easy to use. Their support (ticket, chat, phone) has been very quick with immediate results.

Absolute disappointment

If you have any professional project dont even consider. If you have some personal project and if you dont mind getting your servers blocked randomly without any explanation for hours and continues lockdowns and continues ran... More dom price increases, you can give it a try.
Stay away if you are doing serious work, it will be destroyed very fast and easily. Support treats you like you are a scammer, if any of your competitors sends a fake abuse request your server will get blocked righ away.

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
