Excellent support
Tanis Newman,

I'm a small business owner that needs a secure website, without any technical knowledge. A2hosting's service is excellent. I particularly like their security patches (if they spot updates needed that haven't been done, they a... More utomatically patch the site). Their support is also excellent - instead of referring me to mountains of documentation, they actually fix the problem. Wonderful. What every small business owner needs! Less

Absolutely horrible. Terrible support. Couldn't even get the VPS Hosting to work...
William Morin,

They claim to have 24/7/365 support. We signed up for service and nothing worked. We contacted support and they finally got back to us over a day later and solved nothing. We cancelled the service and are still waiting for a ... More refund but had to dispute the charge through Paypal. They also recommended a link to download the REQUIRED software to supposedly run the VPS which place MALWARE/PUP programs on our computer and browser. Stay far away from this company. Less
The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for anyone

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
