- Uptime: 99.93%
- Load time: 295 ms
- Support: 24/7 live chat
- Features: Fast servers, free SSL, free CDN, 24/7 live support
A2 Hosting is another low-cost WordPress hosting. On their homepage, they make a bold claim of being 20x faster than your current hosting. But is it true?
All of their plans come with SSL (Let’s Encrypt), free Cloudflare CDN, and unlimited SSD storage and bandwidth. Just like on SiteGround, you can also change server locations on A2 Hosting. They currently offer data centers in the USA, Netherlands, and Singapore.
While their customer support chat isn’t ideal (took us ~8 minutes to get in touch with them), it’s available 24/7. In addition, you can contact them by phone, too.
According to performance tests, A2 Hosting indeed was the fastest shared WordPress hosting provider at 295 ms. Even though there were a lot of good aspects with A2 hosting, their last 12-month uptime hasn’t been ideal for us. Coming at 99.94% with a total of 5 hours of downtime per year.
Their cheapest WordPress plan starts at $3.92/mo for a minimum of 36 months and then renews at $7.99/mo. You also get 25 email accounts and unlimited website transfers. A2 might be a convenient host for someone who owns many WordPress websites. Lastly, A2 hosting offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
- PROS: Fastest WordPress hosting, WordPress optimized servers
- CONS: Average uptime – only 99.94%.
