Technical Support Could Be Better

Service used: Shared - Swift - Windows
They seem to have a decent set off features, but sadly their support is badly lacking. You just couldn't rely on this service for a serious production website, especially if you depend upon it for your main source of income.

Reliability

Compare
8.5

A Fully Reliable Service, Fully Secured

They state a 99.9% uptime guarantee which is dynamically updated over time so you can go back and check the historic performances of the servers. They are totally transparent here which is a massive confidence boost to potential customers. When you sign-up with an A2 Hosting plan you benefit from a reliable server setup which includes their own rollback tool which allows you to essentially restore your website to a previous date. The servers are all monitored and secured to the highest standards and are located in a data centre based in Michigan. There you will find redundant power, diesel generators, air conditioning and tight security to gain access to the premises.

Plenty of Features to Keep You Busy

For shared hosting customers you get a lot of bang for your buck, as you will gain access to unlimited features, tools and free extras. Even in the cheapest plan, the Prime, you will get unlimited transfer, email addresses, domains, databases, and RAID-10 storage. A2 Hosting will even transfer your site for free and offer you a 30-day money back guarantee. CPanel is also available across all packages to enable you complete control over your site and hosting.

Support

Qualified Support Staff

The support line at A2 Hosting is good, you are provided a quality of service that you would expect from such a great company. All the support staff are based in the US and are all qualified developers, so getting answers to tech problems should be a breeze for you. Support is available 24/7/365 through live chat, support emails and telephone numbers, and also through a ticket system. They are also present on Twitter but you will find that interaction is pretty slow here, so you are advised to go through the other mentioned options.

  • 24/7/365 support
  • Live chat for sales
  • Knowledge Base
  • Ticket System
  • Qualified Staff
  • No free telephone support outside USA.

Pricing

Compare
8.5

Fairly Competitive Pricing Structure

For each web hosting package comes a set of sub-plans that provide a different level of service. In the shared web hosting package you are given two main plans which are Prime and Prime+SSD. The Prime plan comes in at £3.02 per month whilst the top tier is £4.54 per month. These prices are pretty much in-line with most hosting companies, so you will find competitive prices across the board. A2 Hosting’s reseller plans start at £6.02 and rise up to £16.07, whilst cloud hosting can be completely customisable to your budget and start at just under £10.

User Friendly

A Pleasure to Use, A2 Hosting Understand Usability

The A2 Hosting site is so easy to use and navigate around, you won’t have a hard time finding out what solution is right for you and where you can sign-up. Everything is clearly labelled and well presented on every page. Add to that the fact that they offer the latest version of CPanel with shared hosting, reseller accounts and VPS solutions and you are laughing. One unique usability point that we did find was the fact that A2 Hosting offer a unique rollback tool that you can access in CPanel, to essentially roll your site back to previous state.

Summary

A Reliable & Competitively Priced Hosting Comapany

There are not many bad points to mention about A2 Hosting they are generally a solid and reliable hosting provider that can help individuals, small, medium and even large companies with competitive hosting solutions and prices. The support, reliability and features offered are all above average and the unique rollback tool in CPanel is definitely a massive plus point for those who have a keen interest in site backups and being able to easily and efficiently restore their site to a previous time.
