A2 Hosting Web Hosting Review by Team Green Hosting

A2 Hosting has a fantastic looking website that currently is promoting their green web hosting initiatives. Their current offer (which may change) states they will plant three new trees for every package sold as well as a 30% off discount.

A2 Hosting offers several web hosting packages on their site from web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated servers. Their web hosting package includes unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited hosted domains, and unlimited email accounts with free setup.

We like A2 Hosting because they allow their customers to upgrade within their hosting plans as needed. This is great because if your site grows too large, you'll want faster, more secure hosting that will serve your clients with a better overall experience.

Let's take a look at what A2 Hosting has to say about their web hosting services:

Our customers have gotten used to getting "something more". Something more as in Linux hosting features like our server backup technology Server Rewind. Something more as in hosting services like Guru Crew Hosting Support. That something more like confidence your site will be available because of A2 Hosting's 99.9% Uptime guarantee. The A2 Hosting Difference – that something more that you will find here.

"There's NO such thing as a dumb question". This ancient proverb is the foundation of the web hosting support we provide. The Guru Crew is here to track down the solution to your hosting questions. We have the support technicians to help regardless of your level of web hosting experience. No problem is trivial or insurmountable. Whether you need advanced PHP Hosting support or have a quick question about how to get your blog setup and running, the Guru Crew is here to help.

A2 Hosting Price Value Review by Team Green Hosting

We at Team Green Hosting find that A2 Hosting has above average web hosting prices. Based on current trends in the web hosting market, A2 Hosting pricing is slightly above what our top 10 web hosting providers charge.

A2 Hosting Reliability Review

After careful research of current trends and received user hosting reviews, we are able to rank A2 Hosting as a trustworthy and reliable web host. We did notice some complaints about reliability with servers going offline in 2008 but we have received no bad reviews more recently regarding reliability issues.

A2 Hosting Control Panel Review

A2 Hosting currently offers cPanel as their control panel for web hosting. Since cPanel is the most popular web hosting control panel available, we were very happy to see this. A2 Hosting also offers something called Softaculous with their cPanel hosting that allows the easy installation of over 135 software applications. Since Fantastico only offers 54+ scripts, we find this new option intriguing!

Softaculous is included FREE with every Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting and Dedicated Hosting account within your cPanel control panel. cPanel VPS Hosting customers can also add this exclusive solution to their account.

A2 Hosting Customer Support Review

A2 Hosting offers a pretty good support page full of options to get help, self-help, and other resources. A2 Hosting has a vast knowledgebase that is full of questions and answers to their more commonly received questions. They also offer company news, announcements, self help guides, links, software recommendations, and more!

As for actual customer support, here are the options we found:
  • Toll-free 24/7/365 telephone sales and technical support
  • International telephone support
  • Live Chat (Sales and Support)
  • Email ticket system
  • Billing system
  • Correspondence by mail

Overall, A2 Hosting has all of the options we require to rate their support the best we could expect. A2 Hosting has exceeded all of our requirements to give them 5/5 for customer support.
