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 :)

So basically you make a site that is hosted by them and it doesn't work. They don't like giving refunds. So if you want something that doesn't work and expect bad support. (you have to pay for support if you want good support... More ) which makes it a rip off. So overall, I would give it a lower score if possible and at this point it would be better to list the things it didn't have. Less
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
