OK cloud
Korial K.,

Nice cloud, with pretty swift support.
Sadly lacking quite a bunch of functionality but most of them are currently in alpha or beta.
Should start to be production ready soon-ish
Amazing Experience
Saurabh Sharma,

I am using them for more than 4 Years and i really never face any issue with them. The team is really amazing and help in any situation. I don't think there are any other company who can beat them.
I changed many companies b... More efore A2. But A2 was my one stop solution for my all needs and that's why i am with them for more than 4 years. Less

Was a good hoster, not anymore
Max Koopman,
2.0
Was a client for 5 years with this company and never had issues. After 5 years they claimed that my creditcard was not working. Contacted my bank and they told me that the issue was at their payment provider. Sent a total of ... More 6 emails to the support desk to get this issue fixed. No response whatsoever, even though I replied to their email with the payment error.
After this they blocked my account and took my servers offline.
After this they claimed that they cannot access the mailbox support@scaleway.net. After this they called me a liar saying that they do not use this emailaddress. It's just terrible. I know they are a cheap hoster but it's better to find one that has good support and where you can actually fix these issues before they become a problem.

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
