Above and beyond
Paul Beresford,

I have been with HostMantis for about 10 years (I think) during this time they have been amazing. I am a "nerd" I guess but when I need help they are always there. I remember one time I was at my computer and they were at the... More ir desk (I am on the other side of the world. Australia) and the Q & A were flying back every minute or so for over an hour until my problem was fixed.
Very recently (July 2019) they went "above and beyond" expectations. If it was not for their help I would NOT have my 3 websites up and running. I find "Outside" help impossible to find, and at a Word Press meetup recently when I told others about the service from HostMantis all the others could say was "You are so lucky.. my provider would not do that and if they did it would cost hundreds of dollars)

I have shifted from Fast Comet to A2 Hosting. The service I am getting is outstanding. Highly recommended who are looking for fast-loading hosting.

Worst service ever I got in my 6 years IT career.

Support is very bad. They took too long to fix a simple issue like enabling any feature in cpanel.
Service quality 2 out of 10. support is -1 out of 10.
Never go with this company by seeing huge discount and low price. Alway... More s ignore providers who provide service in extra cheap cost.
Server speed is also very bad.
Even they closed my account without any notice or reason.
To much unprofessional.
Not recommended.

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
