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

You can create a website very easily with WebWave without feeling like a programmer or understanding website design principles. When I need to create a landing page, I can do it with a few clicks, and I know I will have a professional site. You can buy domain names and host through WebWave; having a secure website is great and easy.

Pros

A2 Hosting

  • the hosting hardware they provide is decent when you consider the price
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

  • The UI is a bit complicated but contains all the features and functions needed.
  • No coding skill is required. We can focus on design. And the design process is quite fun.
  • We can adjust and control all the elements of the web easily with WebWave. And I like the richness of the elements available in WebWave.

  • technical support
  • quality control

  • The only thing I would change is to add more payment options in the case of the store (it is about plug-ins). PayPal and cryptocurrency would also be useful.

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.

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.

WebWave has an extensive feature set and the price is a great bargain. Its functionality overall is better and allows the end-user more control over their overall design. The included editor and design review features are top-notch and extremely useful. I'd highly recommend it to any web-developer, but it could also be great for an end user with some design experience.

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

  • they are adequate for a startup looking for cheap site hosting but unreliable for anything beyond

WebWave

  • It has allowed me to build the websites I envision, rather than the best I could build given the limited tools that most site builders offer
  • It has allowed me to build the sites faster
