Since Aaron works in web development, he is often asked what he suggests for this or that, so it’s no secret that eventually he gets asked “Who do you suggest for a web host?” After running through a good cross section of hosting companies, we finally settled on A2 Hosting for our website.
We had been hosting our website (and many others) through Arvixe for over a year before we started having issues with their own website when it came to renewing our domains, making changes to our hosting packages, etc… It got to the point where Aaron would have to contact their support team every time he wanted to do something so he began his research. And if you know him, you know he LOVES to do his research!
The most important factors in deciding which company to go with were cost, uptime, and ease of transition from Arvixe to the new host. Plus they had to allow us to support multiple domains and e-mail accounts. Right out of the gate, Aaron was able to get almost the same exact package that we had on Arvixe for a fraction of the cost. Instead of paying $30 per month, we were now down to $12.99 per month with A2 Hosting. When you’re covering the costs of your own websites and e-mails, a $17 per month savings adds up quickly! They also offer smaller and cheaper packages as well if you’re only looking to host a single site or single domain.
If you’re running any sort of business or online presence, then uptime is one of your top concerns. We’ve recently read an article that states that downtime can cost a business up to $5,600 PER MINUTE! Now we know that this is centered more around larger companies, but if you have a customer try to access your website and it is down, you’re going to lose that customer. A2 Hosting boasts an impressive 99.9% of uptime, but we’ve yet to experience any time when our website or e-mail is down.
Finally, when it comes to ease of transition, you just cannot get any easier than what A2 Hosting offers you. They will have their team of technicians migrate your sites from another host to their servers and will take care of all of the hard work for you. While we didn’t personally go this route because Aaron wanted to handle the e-mail migration himself, we can imagine that having someone do all of the hard work, while you sit back and enjoy the benefits, takes the stress out of switching providers.
A2 Hosting offers a 30 day, money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with their services. With no financial risk and letting them take care of the work of transitioning your site, you really can’t go wrong with them!
