Awesome hosting

I switched to servercheap from digitalocean and never looked back. 100% uptime in 4 month speaks for itself, even digitalocean couldn't do that, and on top I am paying 50% less.
Recommended!

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.

Rude service + Read the fine print
Space boy,
4.8
I find their marketing very misleading. I signed up for the service (over other providers) because their website said "7 Day Money Back. Try us risk free for 7 days. If you are not satisfied for any reason, we will grant a ... More full refund, no questions asked". Well, read the fine print. It's only the first server. I ordered a few. The TOS is buried much farther down the UX flow. When I asked for my money back after < 2 days, they gave me a very strongly worded rejection followed by an even ruder response. Clearly, I was not trying to abuse their service, they just convinced me to buy more with their "guarantee". If you are a current customer, be warned that their support may get hostile. Never had such a rudely written support message before in recent memory. They should be called "ServiceCheap". Less
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
