In a Nutshell

A2 Hosting is a hosting company that lives under the radar, but it’s one that shouldn’t be ignored. With some of the best customer service in the business, insanely fast shared hosting, and top-of-the-line hosting packages, your website will only get the best service. Plans are pricey, but worth it. A2 Hosting only promises excellence, and in our testing, they never came short of that.

pros

  • Easy for the average user to use
  • Excellent customer service

cons

  • Feature restrictions on cheaper plans
  • Lacks Windows-based server options

Ease of Use

For the average user, figuring things out can be a bit difficult at first. There’s a lot of different hosting packages, and depending on what you end up with, there’s a ton of different features available to you. Suffice it to say, it could get confusing. But, once you figure out your hosting package and what tools you have at your disposal, it gets easier to find your way around.

If you’re looking to make a WordPress site, it’s never been easier to grasp. You can order it pre-installed with your hosting package or you can go through the steps of the easy-to-use 1-click install tool. It’s just as easy for many other content management systems (CMS) on A2 Hosting as well.


Return on Investment

The neat thing about A2 Hosting is that, while on the pricey side, they give you high quality tools to give you opportunities to make your money back. Now, your return on investment will depend highly on what you do with your site. Your margins do get a bit thinner because of the pricier hosting plans, but between ad network opportunities, high quality blogging software and a plethora of Ecommerce tools, getting a return on your money won’t be a problem.

And, if you decide you don’t like A2 Hosting within your first 30 days of using it, the company has a great money-back guarantee policy. As long as you cancel within that 30-day window, you’ll get a full refund. Most companies offer a refund policy like this, sometimes with a bit of a longer or even shorter window. But, A2 Hosting takes things a step further. If you cancel after your first 30 days, you’ll get a prorated refund, as in you only pay for what you already used.

Customer Support

A2 Hosting’s customer support team, dubbed the Guru Crew, is some of the best you’ll get in the business. We contacted them on multiple occasions during our test run with A2 Hosting, and they’re nothing but helpful.

They offer 24/7 customer support by way of phone or live chat. When contacting them, we never waited more than a few seconds for someone to respond. Like we said, they’re nothing but helpful. Whether you have simple WordPress questions or are running into more complex issues, the Guru Crew is there to help.

A2 Hosting packages are packed with features. Some of the features you get are dependent upon the hosting package you get, but for the most part, you have a lot available to you. For example, there’s quite a large number of features for setting up an online store. There’s things like PrestaShop available to you, but also a large number of other tools, including drag-and-drop solutions.

The company also supports Let’s Encrypt, meaning you'll get a free SSL. You can get other add-ons as well, such as offsite backups, a spam firewall and even a content delivery network (CDN) like CloudFare.

Visitor Capacity and Scalability Options

The company offers a ton of sweet hosting packages—unmanaged and managed. They’ve got Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, Cloud Hosting, Reseller Hosting and even Dedicated Hosting for sites that require some heavier duty hardware. All of their hosting packages are pricier than many other top-name web hosting providers, but with a 99.9% uptime guarantee and plenty of features at your fingertips, it’s hard to complain.

With the amount of hosting options available, A2 Hosting makes it insanely easy to scale your site. If you’re just starting, you can begin with a small Shared Hosting plan and eventually make your way up to a Dedicated Hosting plan. They make it seamless to upgrade a Shared Hosting or Reseller Hosting plan without any interruption, but if you opt for their VPS Hosting package, you’ll have to order it as a new service and migrate your data over.

Conclusion

All in all, A2 Hosting has a lot to offer for a wide range of people. If you’re someone wanting to start a small blog, A2 has a hosting plan for you. Or, maybe you’re someone wanting to move a high-traffic Ecommerce site over to a web host. Well, A2 has excellent plans for you to choose from as well. A2 Hosting leans on the pricey side, but with the quality you get, you can’t go wrong with entrusting your site to them.

Very easy to use and friendly support when needed. The speed is incredible, and I am really pleased with the hosting of our site.

Enjoy them for the hosting speed. Takes on a lot of options and worked well with WordPress. Customer service was pretty helpful.

I think it is a good service and helps meet our business needs. I wish that the uptime was better. Their "Hack Scan" kept us feeling safe.

A great hosting company. Customer service online was very responsive, and helped integrate CRM as well.

It wasn't as great as I thought it would be (I heard the speeds were top notch; they were fast but not beyond reasonable doubt) but overall did what it needed to. I really liked the style.

I feel they were easy to work with, had helpful and simple prompts, and made the experience very enjoyable. The price was also reasonable.

They are a bit difficult to use by a non-computer type such as myself. On the other hand, they are very, very helpful when you call.

Frequent down time, but it is resolved quickly. I have found that the other hosting service I used has way better up time.

Dependable. High availability. Good customer service. They always are there to assist when needed. My site has not crashed in my time using them.

Needs some work but they have great speed for a hosting service. I feel like there are privacy issues, though.

Never had any problems with the service itself. It's remarkably fast for what it is, but I had trouble getting in contact with them.

A***H, CA

It's pretty good, easy to use and pretty simple I never really had any problems with it and I didn't struggle with it.

A****s, GA

It cost a lot to renew the site, but the speeds were fast enough that we didn't feel like switching. Their service could have been better.

B***y, WI

It is fairly easy to use, but can get a little pricey in comparison to others. Overall it's been pretty good, as our site has held strong.

A***D, GA

I didn't like the fact that they really couldn't get my full vision down. Mostly the servers have been good though and our website is up and running.

D***d, MS

It targets potential sales to customers faster. You could build your website for modest fee.

Is a good value for money, easy to use. I found it unique and different compared to other brands. As an amateur in the hosting services, it makes things easier and fun for me. My only dislike is their customer service.
