Winner: SiteGround

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

This is one of the most difficult comparisons we have done to date because both of these hosting companies offer truly exceptional services to their customers. When you begin to look at how each company performs in key categories like support, features, speed, and reliability, a pattern quickly emerges. While both hosting providers are good, SiteGround consistently out performs A2 Hosting in all the key areas. Whether looking for shared hosting, cloud hosting, or any other available option, virtually everyone will have a better experience with SiteGround, which is why they won in this matchup.
