Magnificent Tech Support
Jesse M. Heines,
10
The men and women of the A2 Hosting support team are among the finest tech support people that I have ever dealt with. I have an unmanaged VPS plan that doesn’t come with extensive support. However, I had a WordPress problem ... More that I thought was a problem on their end, so I opened a support ticket.
Not only did they reply promptly, but they pointed me to the exact information that I needed to solve my problem. As a professor of computer science I know a thing or two about computing, but I am new to WordPress and I am not a Linux specialist. I can follow the directions in technical documentation, but the trick is finding the right documentation!
I had googled my problem extensively, but I didn’t know about WP-CLI, which A2 Hosting tech support pointed me to. I followed their directions to download and installed it and then was able to my WordPress installation. I would not have known about WP-CLI without their help.

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
Avoid Fast Comet please.

They are constantly deceitful. Claim you can send 50mb attachments but forget to tell you they encrypt all mail and a 30mb attachments fails. Say they give you 1000mb mail space but dont tell you encrytion uses that space so ... More you only get like 650mb of space per email account. Cloudflare is constantly looping preventing you from logving in. Live chat support tries to put blame on your end and rarely solves problems, just blames then on your software or machine ( "works on my end"). Use anybody else. Less
