Simply the BEST!
Luke Dawson,

We have been using Hostforlife to host our websites for a number of years now after having used other services over the years. The outstanding feature that we appreciate the most is their service. If we have any issues, and t... More hey happen infrequently, we always get an immediate response and our issue is resolved quickly. It is very important when your clients are depending on your website. Our staff member who liaises with Hostforlife remarks constantly that Hostforlife has been our best hosting service by far.
We are contacted periodically by our account representative to see if anything has changed in our business and if we require an adjustment to our service. We know that he is available to discuss our situation and make recommendations that fit our needs and budget.
We would recommend Hostforlife to anyone looking for reliable hosting services.

You will pay extra money for basic web server functionality
Dmytro S,

I had a very bad experience with this hosting. There was no trial period, so I had to pay 20 EUR for first 3 month. Fine, not a big deal. So I paid and wait few hours for email with hosting details. Then I started to setup my... More website on their hosting, and by the some reason PUT and DELETE HTTP methods didn't worked. I spent few hours to understand what I'm doing wrong. Then I wrote to support team, and it turns out that PUT and DELETE methods are disabled on web server! And I have to pay extra 15 EUR for setup this functionality on web server by support team! And there is no human readable text on their web site about this "extra" feature. So after such bad customer experience I found other hosting and decided to get my 20 EUR back. After my request to return my money, support team said that they can enable HTTP methods for free. So they just tried to scam 15 EUR, and when I refuse to pay and asked about withdraw my 20 EUR they agree to enable HTTP methods. Very bad customer experience. So I continued ask for withdraw my 20 EUR. On their web site I can see text like "30 Days Money Back Guarantee". And it turns out, that in their terms of use (which usually nobody read) said that there is non refundable 15 EUR for their "setup". So I managed to return only 5 EUR. If you don't want to pay extra money for basic web server functionality, I'm strongly don't recommend this hosting. Less
They're terrified of DMCA complaints and will ban you without warning!
Larry Wall,

HostAdvice note: A2 Hosting never claimed to be a one that doesn't respect DMCA notices, and they acted appropriately.
One DMCA complaint and they'll ban your entire account no matter how many domains are hosted on it.
They c... More laimed one of my websites offers illegal services, but they didn't mention which one, which was absolutely a false claim. It was a DMCA notification from Corsearch that made them ban my entire account of 30+ domains without any notification and a "Thanks!" at the end of the email! Less
