Helpful Team
Shaheer Jacobs,

I've been through many south african web hosts, but find that Hostking is awesome. I had one major hiccup with my website where I broke it by installing a caching plugin into my wordpress and they were willing to help. I like... More that they are 24/7 as I can also count on someone to be around when needed using their live chat. I also have no issues with the speed of my website. It runs nice and fast. Keep up the good work guys Less
Reliable Friendly Service

I've reached out a few time to the team and have always had my questions answered and needs met. I'm consistently met with a quick response, friendly conversation, and a real answer to my problem.

Within 4 weeks HostKings service level slipped so far down to disconnect a paid account without notice, disrupting file and data transfer badly. Asking myself, is this a new revenge policy for leaving? I noticed recently a si... More gnificant drop in service quality and decided to change to another host. Your behavior is now childish and changed from bad service to disgusting. Less
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
