A2 Hosting is a well-known company in the web hosting business. It is specifically known for its uptime, blazing-fast server speeds, and prompt customer service.
Here is the in-depth A2Hosting.com review by Jerry Low :-
I purchased the Prime Hosting Package by A2 Hosting in May 2013 to test the service.
According to my tests, I think that there’s a lot to like about the service.
I take it from the hosting speeds that they are literally obsessed with blazing fast speeds. Everything from your files, databases to the core operating system is stored on high-speed SSDs to ensure fast speeds.
The shared hosting servers come with a 12-core server, 10 GB Transfer and 64 gigs of RAM. The turbo plan also comes bundled with the Railgun optimiser which greatly speeds up the delivery of noncached web pages over the Cloudflare CDN.
You can still get this tool on the base plan but you’d have to pay a monthly fee which is still worth every penny as it speeds up the HTML loading time (140% faster speeds).
After speeds, my second favorite thing about A2 Hosting is their multicontinental servers. They have 3 data centers for their hosting plans, in the United States (Michigan), Netherlands (Amsterdam) and Singapore.
This ensures that your website will be available to every corner of the world in the least time possible as the server locations are varied. If you see the A2Hosting.com review by Jerry Low , he has tested the servers with many connections from different parts of the world.
Apart from this, A2 Hosting also provides Managed WordPress Hosting which is an added benefit if your site is running on the WordPress CMS. It provides automatic updates of plugins, themes, and the WordPress core and also provides optimization through the A2 Optimised(R) tool. This makes the Pages Load six times faster and gives your sites advanced security to defend against attacks.
Speed Test Results on the Test Hosting Plan
The features that are provided by these hosting companies looks good on paper everytime but the real speeds are what matters the most. Keeping that in mind, I ran some speed tests on the test hosting service which I mentioned at the beginning to get to know the actual server speeds which they offer.
The tool used to test the website is called Bitcatcha.
I pinged the test site from 8 locations from around the globe using the tool and got the results.
The site got an A ranking in the speed test which was performed. This is way better than any other hosting package at this price point which is $3.92/month.
Site Uptime Test
If you want to build an authoritative site, you should focus on its uptime more than its speed. If the site isn’t up, the speeds will not matter at all.
A2 Hosting guarantees a 99% uptime, to get that number, it has staff working on their servers 24/7.
To test this claim, I monitored the uptime of my test website in a period of 30 days.
I was really impressed by the results as apart from a few occasions when my site was don for a few moments, it had 99.% uptime in the 30 day period.
If you want a reliable hosting package, then you should definitely opt for A2 Hosting as they are one of the best hosting providers.This was the A2Hosting.com review by Jerry Low.
