A2 Hosting

Never would I recommend this company to anyone. [In my experience] they are total nightmares to deal with and depend on. You can't depend on them at all. Plus, [I feel that] they lie and manipulate the search queries based on lies (they do NOT have radio hosting yet they have ads saying that they do).

My opinion is that Webwave is an excellent choice for the presentation of portfolios for photographers, videographers, and designers, as well as for the selling of digital products, eCommerce websites, blog content, and premium features that are protected behind a membership system, and educational websites. Although Webwave does not yet have the same compatibility with a wide variety of plugins or the same blog-friendly structure as WordPress, I am confident that it will ultimately reach that point given the current speed of development. Additionally, a larger user base will increase the community base and popularity of the product.

Pros

A2 Hosting

  • the hosting hardware they provide is decent when you consider the price

WebWave

  • Web designing--super customizable. It's really like a graphic design tool. Anything on the website can be changed the way you want. WordPress doesn't usually allow it, with its fixed rows and columns set up. But here I found out i could do anything.
  • Simple UX--Part of the reason why the builder works so well is the UX. It's simple but does the job, and you don't have to think too hard to find the buttons.
  • Has all features one would need, including ecommerce. I don't plan on using it yet though (my business doesn't require it) but it's nice to have in case the business grows.

Cons

A2 Hosting

  • [In my experience] customer service is awful.
  • [From what I've seen] they don't care about clients.
  • [In my situation their] first reaction is always to blame it on the unmanaged factor.

  • Even if the page is modified and saved, the published site does not see the changes. It took up to an hour for the changes to take effect.
  • There is no integration of the Google rich schema settings.
  • Loading time is not as fast as many competitors—Gtmetrix performance rating is a maximum of 81 percent, although Google PageSpeed mobile (56 percent) and desktop (56 percent) are faster (91 percent ). Checked with a ready-made theme.
  • The WebWave website IP addresses have been blacklisted for malware. Malwarebytes frequently prevents the loading editor or live test pages. This could be because the backend framework IPs were previously utilized someplace, affecting WebWave in general.
  • Only payment gateway for the store settings is Stripe, which is not available in many countries.
  • Manual VAT/Tax options in the shipping/store page-single/fixed one tax type only.

      Never would I use this service. I canceled 7 accounts I believe so far. [In my opinion] it's a waste.

      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

      A2 Hosting

      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.

      1. The support person does not seem to understand the issues, and seems like they go off to talk to somebody and revert back every 5 to 10 minutes. It takes up a lot of time. 2. There is a lack of reading material to address simple issues like changing the website name in the dashboard, pasting a code, etc.

      It's an easier, super complete option and cheaper Instead of paying everything separately like Wix, this option gives you all for a good price. And is the same with Elementor, you need to pay their license, the hosting, the domain, and connect everything manually, but this option is more affordable with high quality. They have time in the market and they reinvented their branding with a fresh and cool look.

      A2 Hosting

      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
