I have been hosting with a2hosting for many years and I am satisfied with their services.

a2hosting support is superb. Why I didn't give 5 star is because my account was charged without my permission. Keep it up, but stop charging customers without their permission.

My server is down frequently.
Never give them your credit card information, They will charge you even after you cancel your server.
The worst service ever, stay away
