Why I Promote A2 Hosting

Searching for the right hosting provider?

Are you are considering the option of it is time to switch webhosting providers?  Are you ready to start your first website and need helpful information to choose the right hosting provider? Researching the many web hosting providers on the market can be a daunting task. So much information can become confusing and time consuming. Choosing the right webhosting company is very important. Hopefully, my review will break down the information to the most relevant pieces and help your decision making process much easier. 

A2 Hosting is my webhosting company of choice for over five years now on a few sites I have. 

I am speaking from my personal experience that I have with this company and and why I feel they offer superior hosting. When I originally purchased hosting, I had no experience with creating a website using WordPress and I had never seen the inside of a CPanel for hosting a site.  I was a total novice with no experience. I was totally overwhelmed.  I made a lot of mistakes and needed a lot of help and I had a lot of questions.

I have referred A2hosting to friends who were creating  sites for their business and others who were seeking to change hosting providers.  All were very happy they chose A2hositng for their needs.  

Breaie.com contains affiliate links that if you click on a link and make a purchase we maybe compensated with no additional cost to you.  There we have to say that  Breaie may benefit. (Disclosure)  


Let's do  a very brief run down on A2Hosting's history.  

The company started in 2001 by CEO Bryan Muthig in a small office in Michigan with a dream of helping everyone to succeed online with easy to use hosting.

Fast-forward, the company now has over two hundred employees and data centers globally.  Bryan is sticking to his original vision and that dream has manifested and continues to evolve with the original mission statement intact. Wonderful to see companies start, grow, expand and be profitable. 


What Does A2Hosting Offer You?

Small business owners or someone creating their first website knows that a small glitch while learning to create a website or experience a huge issue with their hosting can create severe stress.  Rest assured that A2 Hosting has reliable technical support for you to reach out to. 

A2 Hosting offer 24/7/365 email, live chat, and phone support.  I have zero experience in using their chat or email support.  I have used their phone support because I like the personal touch of speaking with a guru.  Their wait times are very reasonable and their tech support is top notch. 

If you have no experience with webhosting or starting up a website like I was back in the day, their tech support will walk you through the whole process, answer your questions, help you fix the errors, or other issues as well as be your tech teacher.  They will guide you on how to troubleshoot common issues as you gain more knowledge and skills you will gain confidence and be proud of your online creation.  

A2 Hosting has created an extensive knowledge base of information that you can search for your specific requirements. Step by step instructions are given to help you fix your issue.  If you need help, they are available anytime. Just reach out. 


Site Migration

If you currently have a website and are ready to change hosts, site migration is free. My understanding is the site migration for one website only.  Double check on this offer should you have more than one website to move. 

Point and click install with A2 site builder.   CMS rush and WordPress

Build a website quickly. Always know that tech support is available should you get stuck or have questions. 


A2hosting has great reviews and have won awards.

The reviews submitted provides feedback to companies on how they are conducting business.  The negative feedback on a company should be taken as a way to be and do better towards their customer base.  Negative reviews shows where the company may need improvement.

A2hosting has currently over 1500 reviews on Trust Pilot with a 4.5 rating.  


On the A2hosting site under reviews, they have a lot of reviews submitted by their hosting customers.  Many reviews are recent with very positive feedback. If you are curious and want to research more, you can scroll back in time and see the comments left by their customers.

VPS is an abbreviation of virtual private server. Managed and Unmanaged VPS hosting is available to site owners that do not want or need shared hosting plans or have large amounts of traffic.  For example, a growing ecommerce biz, running more than one website, developing websites for clients, or developers that work on multiple websites.  They prefer having their own servers that the site owner can manage themselves or have the A2Hosting team manage the VPS for you.  

Each VPS operates independently from other servers.  Each VPS has its' own allocation of resources like RAM, CPU, and disk space.  Almost like having your own dedicated server, but with out all of the headaches and extra costs. A VPS server is isolated from other servers which offers many advantages such as customization, scalable, and better performance of the website.
