So I was once an ASO customer and when that began to fall apart I came over to A2, as they were recommended by a former ASO/A...展開
2 exec whom I know. I purchased a triannual plan sight unseen for my client hosting.
There's a LOT of stuff that could be better. For starters, the WHM/CPanel setup does not allow for me to connect to my GDrive to back up the /home folder as my old ASO did. Also, I cannot quickly access PHPMyAdmin from the WHM level to get into multiple databases at once (good for importing data between accounts if there's a need).
I have my own set of custom nameservers set up that I cannot use for new accounts created because something is not configured correctly and it takes a couple of trips to the support ticket system to get the domain to point to the host. It's a major PITA when you've got several sites to build and want to get the domains resolving for things that depend upon the domain name, such as a WP install. Yes, "a couple of trips" because the "guru" who initially helps me ends up being the "trainee" and I have to make at least two trips for it to resolve correctly.
Many times I'm in the support chat and see "You are No. 1 in the queue" and then I get bumped back to No.3, then 2, then 1, then 2 again, etc. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature or a ploy by marketing to make me feel like "shoulda bought the "priority service package"...
I kinda wish I'd done more research before I so blindly trusted the word...of someone I trusted!
Probably gonna be moving again soon and getting a refund on the term I've not used so far.
I've been on Webfaction's shared hosting plan from 2013 when they were owned by private entity and hosted the servers with So...展開
ftlayer datacenter. But at the end of 2017 they got acquired by Godaddy and moved to HEG's St.Louis data center and the new servers are just awful. They go down atl east 2-3 times a week! Webfaction uses Ngnix as reverse proxy and many a times my sites were automically fall out from their configuration files - the result - blank pages. I had to open support department to get the things right. Webfaction does not use HTTP2, neither litespeed server or mariadb! They use the heavy and slow Apache server. The reliability of their servers has fallen down. They increase pricing from $8 to $10 per month for a shared web hosting plan. But you don't get a dedicated IP or control panel or access to backups. Their support is good.
