As a web developer, I’ve tried a number of web hosts over the years. Some were okay. Others, not so much.
But finding a dependable and outstanding hosting provider was difficult. When I stumbled into A2 Hosting (note: affiliate link), I was pleasantly surprised. They offered everything I had been searching for in a web hosting provider. Quality customer service. Reliability. Helpful staff that was easy to reach. Affordability.
Unlike some providers who force their staff to sell additional services their customers don’t need, I’ve never experienced that with A2 Hosting.
Their support team actually listens and works hard to resolve any issues quickly and painlessly. They’re also available by phone, not just a support ticket. If you manage one or several sites, you know how important this can be!
I’ve now been with A2 Hosting for over four years and counting.
