OUTSTANDING SUPPORT! As a complete novice I struggled to understand what was required and my frustration was getting the better of me. Evanjaline, worked her 'magic' and got everything sorted for me. Very few companies provid... More e this level of support.
It is so refreshing to see this level of customer focus from A2 support . My renewal with A2 is not in question ! Many thanks A2 support team

Mon blog est hébergé chez Planethoster depuis plusieurs années et je recommande leurs services. le SAV est très réactif, on peut poser toutes les questions que l'on veut et en cas de soucis, la réponse est très rapide.

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
Great support, less features

Mail and acces to website should be the the main services that this provider must give to the customers. They do, but when problems appear, "sadly it's like this on shared servers, we can't do anything". So if you want soluti... More ons, they propose you to get a Hybrid or dedicated server. Like saying "we give you a service, but it's not 100% sure it will work". Especially with the new custom made software called "N0C", a proprietary software that Planet Hoster test on his live clients. Mails are blocked, sites are blocked. They have a sort of Captcha to unlock yourself, but that thingy was not tested and it's not working, so infinite Captcha displayed.
Bad experience, that I don't want to repeat, not for me, not for my clients. It was OK 10 years ago, now, the costs must be too big for actual number of customers, so "some must go". I don't mind paying more for a great service, thay know to do it since they were doing that in the past.
