FREE basic SSLsecurity

I've been with Interserver.net for 5 years and am VERY glad I found this Hosting Provider. Their prices are low, their up time is HIGH and Tech Support always answer my questions promptly. Other hosting providers charge for ... More basic SSL security. However at Interserver.net they include it for FREE with their hosting packages. That was BIG savings for my multiple websites. I'm a VERY Happy client at Interserver.net.. I recommended them to friends and family. Less

They're terrified of DMCA complaints and will ban you without warning!

HostAdvice note: A2 Hosting never claimed to be a one that doesn't respect DMCA notices, and they acted appropriately.
One DMCA complaint and they'll ban your entire account no matter how many domains are hosted on it.
They c... More laimed one of my websites offers illegal services, but they didn't mention which one, which was absolutely a false claim. It was a DMCA notification from Corsearch that made them ban my entire account of 30+ domains without any notification and a "Thanks!" at the end of the email! Less

Winner: A2 Hosting

Delight Johnson Hosting Expert

These are two truly excellent hosting providers, and regardless of which one is chosen, you’ll almost certainly be thrilled with their services. When we went through and compare the plans they offer, the quality of features, their reliability, and other factors, however, we found that InterServer ranked higher in each category, though the margins were often quite tight. This, along with the fact that InterServer has long been known for their commitment to quality, show that they are the better option in this comparison.
