Always answering my questions and solving my tech problems quickly and efficiently. Probably the best support and hosting service I've ever had. I highly recommend A2.

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
The worst service ever, stay away

For every problem you have they will ask you to upgrade to vps, even you can’t set your cron job to run every 5 minutes for this to happen you need a vps , stay away
