Awesome hosting
Justin Crawl,

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!

The support team was super quick at responding to the problem I was having. They addressed it immediately and went above and beyond what I was expecting. Thank you!

Horrible Support
Robert S,

I had servercheap.net as a solution, there was a problem with their image on Ubunut 18.04 that would not allow me to change the hostname. I ope the ticket and the support person replies with a googled article that explains ho... More w to change it. However, I already knew how to change it, i kept changing it, tried it 10 times before opening a ticket. Every time I would reboot it would revert it back to the same Ubuntu18 hostname. So, I responded to the ticket explaining that they didn't read my ticket, but they said the case was closed and I needed to follow the link. I replied again, told him I did follow the document but after rebooting it would still revert. So, they band me from their service and destroyed 30gb of data that I cannot get back.
DO NO USE THEM...

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
