Server Speed and Network Performance

A2 Hosting offers the fastest Shared Hosting, we measured (less than 400ms load time). They guarantee 300% faster WordPress hosting, and provides a variety of hosting package options.

With green hosting, the company is also doing something that is good for the environment, not only for your check book, when you are deciding on a hosting package that is going to work best for you as a business owner or a site operator.

Server Speed Rating:

Uptime and Reliability

A2 Hosting give a 99.9% uptime guarantee. We measured 99.94% uptime, wich is ok, but can not compete with BlueHosts 99.99%.

With low prices, and reasonable package features, the company is a pretty good hosting option, for those who want affordable options
