Has PHP 5.6

I use PHP 5.6 for a special shopping cart we developed and A2 Hosting is about the only place that still offers this. Great service and I love how fast the turbo is.

Service sucks
FRITZ FREI,
5.6
I tried hosting an asp.net website there.
They charge you for the tiniest tips even if they are not pertinent to the functioning of your website. They are incompetent. One service clerk told me there was no DB of the name I t... More argeted linked to my website. This was after I complained about a non-authorized charge for useless service. The DB was reachable before the spat and not after. So, I strongly believe their service people screw customers at their will. Less
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
