Just setup the reseller account. I'm happy with it, but support could be faster.

The A2 support is absolutely amazing. They have helped me sort out all kinds of issues quickly and usually within a few hours. Can't recommend them highly enough :)

Worst hosting provider ever in every way !!!

I have been dealing with hostnine as a reseller for 12 years now, it has been great by service and support and the pricing was reasonable.
since been bought by an indian company, service is always down, support is really bad ... More and knows nothing.
pricing has increased from $500 to $1100.
my main domain has been dropped and repurchased by someone after paying them the renewal fees which they haven't done and the domain dropped after few weeks and they simply refunded me $15 !!!!
all their servers are outdated and ancient, PHP, SQL ETC has never been updated and i cannot install or run websites on php 5.6
this is just what i can remember now !!!!

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
