Great Customer Service

A2 Hosting have hosted my website for a couple of years, I’ve never had an issue with them, absolutely brilliant, when it comes to customer service they are amazing, I’ve never dealt with such a spot on customer service team,... More They helped me with the problem in like two hours, they’re quick, polite and what would’ve been a hassle ANYWHERE else was something quick and easy with these guys, I couldn’t recommend a hosting service more.

A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account
Alexander Nachev,

A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account with 4 sites for having 2 sites that are actually not illegal and even not important for me. I didnt even receive an email for the ticket A2hosting created!!! I found out that my acco... More unt is closed when i saw a huge SERP drop on my serp tracking. And this is the second BIG seo issue. The first one was that my other 2000$ VPS account was linked with some a2dns.com domain and it was crawled by google with the content of the hosted site. Creating duplicates!!! This is outrageous!!! I feel like i am betrated, i spent so much money and i received attitude of a free hosting. Thats A2hosting for me now: A free hosting for 3000$. They just ban you when they decide and for what they decide. Less

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.
