The professional focused efforts they dedicatedly put together into making sure their customers feel safe, secure and taken care of are something every webhosting customers would value highly.
I've recommended their offshore ... More hosting to several people who now also use them and are impressed with the uptime and website speeds. Less
Excellent service.

Be careful with this hosting

Be careful with this hosting. They are scammers. I paid 3 months in advance and they stole my money. Warez-Host and HostPlay are the same group of scammers.
The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone

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
