Reliable and Efficient
Gerard Willett,

Reliable and Efficient is what I would say about A2 Hosting. Whenever I find myself needing technical support because I am not technically minded the tech support at A2 Hosting always come to my rescue in a timely fashion. If... More ever I was asked who I would recommend as as hosting service. A2 Hosting is my preference. Less

bottom of the barrel

As a web developer, I have worked with different Registrars for 25+ years now and Register.com is near the bottom of the list (along with Godaddy). Apparently there was an issue with a card and among their barrage of daily sp... More am emails there might have been a notice about this. Regardless, we are now almost 30 hours in, after providing new credit card info, for them to restore our site. Spent hours on chat and the phone and they still cannot tell us when they may get around to restoring our email and web services. You keep getting bounced around from all these different departments but in the end, 30 hrs in we are still down. I should also note that the disputed charge was for a service we were not even using and they took it upon themselves 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
