Flummoxed with the negative reviews of TSO Host.
David Willis,

I'm going to quick with my comment. All these negative reviews about TSO Host make no sense, whatsoever. Either they are bot related or the people using the (TSO Host) service are two sandwiches short of a picnic. Either way,... More something seems amiss.
I have used TSO Host for many years. Their customer service is amazingly friendly, informative and helpful. Problems/questions are answered and rectified very quickly.
I have no idea what these 'reviewers' are reviewing. I cannot agree with any of them!
Regards
David

Been using their shared hosting Turbo Boost plan and could not be happier. A2 Hosting won the editors choice award from https://webhostingawards.org so we gave them a shot. So glad we did. Really impressive server uptime and ... More performance ideal for hosting multiple WordPress sites. Thumbs up! Less

Shockingly Bad - They Should Be Shut Down
Bob Millard,
2.0
Hate is a strong word… but I hate this company. The TSOHost management are so nasty and incompetent that I only wish utter failure on them all.
They decided to “terminate the platform” I was on, due to the fact they were not ... More going to support it anymore. OK, fair enough, I thought. I understood the reasons and accepted it.
They then told me I had less than 6 weeks to get all my client’s websites and email accounts off the server or they would delete everything. After speaking to them for a few days, they then declared that they would not give me access to use Plesk Migration tools and that I had to do the entire migration manually. Over 100 accounts. Literally, by hand. With zero help from them.
I couldn’t believe their attitude - it was basically ‘oh sorry, whatever, have a nice day’. The arrogance was astonishing.
So far, it has taken me about 150 hours, day and night around my full time job, which I have come close to losing. I don’t see my family at the weekends, untold stress between myself and my clients, coming at the worst time of the year, a few weeks before Christmas. An absolute nightmare.
I wish nothing but bad luck on this shower of a company. They should be shut down.
And don’t fall for the “excellent" reviews on Trust Pilot!!! Just read them carefully and you will easily see the pattern.
The only silver lining of this horrible experience was finding my new server company and realising that I had been stuck in the dark ages for years. It is SO much better where I am now and I now know I should have moved years ago. If you read this and then decide to go with TSOHost, just be aware, that this company only care about money, they detest their customers and they will stab you in the back at some point.

A2hosting unexpectedly stopped my account
Alexander Nachev,
2.0
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
