Fast SSDs and automatic updates
Desmond Suarez,
10
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
Good Cloud Hosting
Brady Conner,
9.6
This company mostly focuses on cloud hosting, which is just what I was looking for. I also love that they are based in Ireland, which is where most of my traffic comes from. They do a great job keeping my site up and running ... More and I don't have any problems with them. Less

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone
Kurt Gilek,

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
