Hi everyone, here is my A2 Hosting Review – A2 Hosting is a top speed web host that offers shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, Cloud hosting, Dedicated hosting and WordPress Hosting. A2 Hosting is speed!

As an active blogger, website owner or webmaster, one of your major concern should be your blog’s loading time. As a matter of fact, one of the main reasons your site does not rank satisfactorily on SERP is your web host. That’s because your blog’s loading time is a ranking factor.

For the most part, web hosts account for more than 50% of your site’s sluggish loading. That’s some shocking truth that can cause you to choke. Yes I know!  So by moving to A2 Hosting, you are already solving over 50% of your speed problems.

See the image below! I ran a speed test for a blog that’s currently hosted by Hostgator. This blog’s load speed is about 6 seconds. That’s bad isn’t it?

Now, from the image, the server takes over 3 seconds to respond. That shows the server is responsible for over 50% of the slowness – pulling my hairs now!

Server response time is recommended at under 200ms. You agree with me that 3 seconds is almost an exaggeration.

Let me roll out some statistics;

Do you  know your site’s speed directly impacts your bounce rate, conversion rate and visitor satisfaction? According to industry reports, a mere 1-second delay in your site’s page load speed can cause;

  • 7% decrease in your conversion rate,
  • 16% decrease in visitor satisfaction,
  • 11% fewer page views.

These figures are enough to pull your online business down and I’m sure you won’t give this a chance.

Advanced Hosting Features

A2 Hosting goes beyond their competitors, offering more advanced features. Here are some of them at a glance;

Server Rewind Backups:

Server Rewind is the free file recovery program that enables you to easily restore your data from saved snapshots when recovery is necessary. The server Rewind Backup feature is;

  • Automatic – Account backup snapshots are taken regularly.
  • Flexible -You can restore a single file, MySQL database, site or your entire account.
  • Convenient – You can access Server Rewind from your control panel.
  • Exclusive – You can only get your hands on it at A2 Hosting!
  • Free – Yes, it’s actually 100% free.

Perpetual Security with HackScan

One heart-breaking exercise you will never wish to do is fixing a hacked site A lot of things may still go wrong even after recovering it – your reputation could be compromised and Google may still block your site. For the most part, A2 Hosting’s competitors still charge extra fee for hack protection!

A2 Hosting  has included free HackScan protection with each hosting account. HackScan is the exclusive hack protection scanning that helps block hacks before they can invade and damage your site.

Many more server features include;

  • cPanel 11 Control Panel,
  • A2 Sitebuilder,
  • Softaculous (1-Click Drupal, WordPress & Joomla Install),
  • Unlimited Email Accounts with Spam Protection,
  • MySQL 5.5 Databases,
  • unlimited Domains, etc.

Customer service

I started hosting with 1and1, then moved to Godaddy. These are great hosts but as far as customer service is mentioned, they still have to wake up. In my dark days with 1and1, I used to for more than 24 hours and sometimes 48 hours to get a ticket responded to.

One of the things that detirmine customer satisfaction if customer service. As a matter of fact, there is no hosting service without issues to resolve. How soon issues are addressed and treated is the main point. I’m thinking of 2 factors here;

  1. Support staff qualification.
  2. Support staff availability.

If one or all of these are questionable, then your support service is lame. A2 Hosting has live chat tool which is one of the tools every web host should have due to the nature of their business. A client doesn’t have to wait for 2 hours for a ticket to be answered.

An e-commerce site down for 2 hours could me huge losses and if your web host is the cause because of poor customer service, then you are in the wrong place.

I recently moved my website to SSD server, well I would not take the name of hosting provider but I would like to share some stats here. Previously my website loading time was 5.25 seconds and after moving to SSD server my website loads in just 2.45 seconds. This stats are from pingdom so they are 100 percent accurate. By the way great article Enstine, webpage loading time is one of the most crucial term in SEO, which many of newbies ignores. This will surely help them all to rank more higher.

Hi Enstine Muki!

This is another wonderful post from your end. I am also facing the problem of slow load time of my website. But I don’t the SSD server is the only reason for load time delay because my another friend is using the same service provider and even similar template, and his load time is much low in compare to mine.

May I know what can be the other reason for it? And can Google Web Master Tools can help me in this regard. If yes, how?

But when you consider the cost i think litespeed is a better choice. I know some will be hearing the term LiteSpeed for the first time. Consider you blog was hit with around more than 100 visitors per second, still your blog loads faster as like there are no visitors.

Hey! Enstine,

Currently my blog is hosted on A2 Hosting Prime+SSD (Cloudflare enabled) and the load of my blog is under 2 seconds (tested by Pingdom website speed test) even I’m using over 18 plugins and no downtime I’ve found since using from April 24.
Great review…

Thanks!

Hi Enstine Sir!

I was not at all aware of any hosting like this which is far better than its competitors by various factors. Since the start my trust wasn’t on HostGator and BlueHost because I preassumed that they will be crowdy which would impact page speed. I had heard negative things about godaddy so I wasn’t on its side either.

I can find some users of this host from the previous comments. All I am receiving is positive feedback of A2 Hosting. I also did a check on the public reviews of WhoIsHostingThis, they too are giving me a positive response. This, of course, proves that this host is of good worth!

Coming to your review, I am always amazed to see that your writing turns insane when it comes to writing reviews. I wonder how you could do that! 🙂

Thanks for the post! Have a nice day!

My blog is hosted on namcheap, and i think namecheap share some blame in my page speed.

I analysis my page speed score with google page speed tool, my mobile view scored 69 / 100, while my web view scored 87 / 100.

my server responded in 0.89 seconds. which is due to my hosting.

All the same thanks for the share.

Namecheap still rocks for me dough!

A2 Web hosting is an excellent web hosting service. But at starting the hostgator server have 50/100 points for google page speed. I think it is due to no caching plugin installed.

Hi Enstine,
Though I have never used a2 hosting, I tried many shared hosting providers in my career and most of them failed to deliver what exactly they are offering!!.

As I never used a2hosting, I am not the right person to drop a comment regarding the a2hosting performance.Though I have recently moved few of my blogs to digitalocean SSD cloud VPS hosting and their performace is really great

The websites are loading very quickly as well as they are really cheap.I think you might also try digitalocean for your site and scale the performace
