Amazingly FAST & RESPONSIVE Technical Support from Swapnil B.
Robert S. Katz,

This morning I was terrified as I was checking up on our organizational website. After hitting enter, I received an immediate WordPress error. Not having anywhere close to the level of technical skills needed to resolve thi... More s, I reached out to my development team. No members were immediately available. Knowing that I was expecting critical partners to be on our website any second, I reached out to my hosting company A2 as a last-ditch attempt to bring our site back from the dead. Even though I knew it was most likely not its fault at all, the A2 support team was willing to investigate. One of A2's terrific Support Professionals, Swapnil B., came back to me within seemingly seconds...amazingly with a full resolution. There was a plug-in that went rouge. Swapnil B. corrected the issue right away - and we are now back in business.
Thank you so much to A2 for all of its amazing technical assistance..., especially from Swapnil B. :)

Hello James,
Unfortunately, we will no longer be providing you with a hosting service in the new year.
Also note i started paying £2.99 a month and it went up to £10 a month. I advise staying away from this company
Plea... More se accept this as notice we will end your hosting subscription in 7 days (30th December 2019).
We will ensure that you are refunded in full any remaining time on your hosting service and our support team will provide backups of your data if you require them, to ease your transition to another hosting provider.
Please accept my most sincere apologies for any inconvenience this might cause. We wish you the very best for the future.
Kind Regards
Dave Kimberley
Company COO
