A2 Hosting

if you're looking for a somewhat cheap web host but don't care about uptime, outages or decent technical support then A2 is ideal

Just Host

Just Host is great option for affordable domain registration and web hosting. There are numerous promo codes that can cut your first bill by 50%, so pay ahead! Just Host also offers one-click WordPress installation and built-in tools like the Mojo Marketplace where companies and individuals can purchase professional-looking themes for their WordPress sites. If you're looking to start a WordPress site, this is a great place to do that. However, our websites have grown tremendously in the past year and we have noticed the sites slow down as traffic increases. This has resulted in some major problems with our popular blog (6,000–10,000 page views per month) and we are looking at alternative options to Just Host.

they are only technically available but having someone say hello, i'm here to help, immediately is not real responsive if they actually never address the issue being reported. we don't contact support for the bland greeting, we are actually trying to solve a business process interruption

Performance

They are only good if you never update your website and i mean never. Otherwise their main performance diffrentiator is turbo web hosting, their highest shared hosting plan. When caching is working it performs well reducing load times by half, but as soon as you add a new page to the site, the updates don't show up until you clear the cache manually from multiple locations (wordpress a2optimized plugin, cpanel etc..). As they make updates to the turbo hosting A2optimized plugin, they do not test them properly and do not handle customer feedback about them, instead they are in denial and try to immediately convince the customer there is no issue at all! the old developer joke when they don't want to fix feedback: it works on my machine!

In my opinion they are unresponsive, rude, incompetent, and untrustworthy to boot.

I believe they do not care about addressing failures when they occur. Starting out with a working service counts for nothing if you can't maintain it, fix issues when reported, and actually take the extra step to prevent them from happening again. You have to care about quality and customer service, and A2 couldn't care less
