David: Hi. David from MyBestHostingReview.com. This video is about A2 Hosting, an overview and review.I’ve used them for about a year and I think I’m very qualified to talk about this and, again, compare them to the many other hosting accounts that I’ve tried, hundreds of hosts. I’m going to tell you what I think in this video pretty quickly.
So, features. cPanel. Very important feature. A lot of companies make their own cPanel instead of using the classic cPanel. Thankfully, they have the classic cPanel, which is much better. It’s just standardized and it has all the things that you need. I’m just so [hap 00:00:41] … Every time I see that, I’m much happier. It does have the cPanel, so yes, that’s good.
Support. They have very good support. They’re known for their excellent support. So, that’s important. If you send a message and you have a query or you’re having issues, they’re very good at responding and they make it easy, in my experience. I haven’t needed the support a whole lot, but the times that I have used it, I have gotten a good response as opposed to some other companies.
Let’s check out their pricing. Let’s see if I do get started, let’s just do, like … Let’s see the cheapest you can get. Use code ZIP51. Every company, they’re going to … Let’s say we’re going to register a new domain. Check. Continue. I typically compare by 12 month price. Priority support. I don’t think you need that. My experience is their support is pretty good.
Okay, so, $52 for the first year. That’s a good price. That’s going to be a good price. It’s going to be hard to find a really good company that has that price. Now, the year after that, it’s $100, which is a little bit high. But, again, I’m willing to pay a little bit extra for a company that really has good support. In my opinion, I think it’s worth it. Plus, it’s a year from now. If you really are worried about that, you can get this price, $93 for two years or even the 36 month price. I typically will just get the 12 month and move on.
You even get to pick your location, which I also like. Let’s encrypt free. That’s actually really good that they give you an SSL certificate. A lot of companies will charge you a decent amount of money for that.
That’s pretty much it. This by itself [inaudible 00:02:38] by this price, it’s a really good price. You’re not going to be able to find a better offer than this. This is their standard offering.
Are they owned by EIG? Which, again, if you haven’t watched before, they’re a company that buys successful hosting companies, strips their support, and keeps their pricing the same. Here’s a list. This is actually their Wikipedia page. It’s called Endurance International Group. No, they are not on there. So, that’s good. I would be surprised. You never know. A year from now, they might buy it. Then I would take them away from my recommendation.
But, right now, actually, I do highly recommend them. I think they’re one of my favorite hosts right now, if not my favorite. There’s a link below to where you should be able to go through and buy it. Please buy through my link. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and I get a little bit of credit for that.
