found them to be absolutely excellent and their Support is the best support I have seen from any company for any product or service, ever! I hold Blacknight up as the Gold Standard. The Support staff at Blacknight are always friendly and professional and more to the point, very knowledgeable.

unately my income is not big enough to continue use it.
I had no problems with downtime on A2Hosting and thanks to them for this, but there are many cons which makes me nervous.
1.When I add domain, it starts to run AutoSSL and until it does not assign SSL to your domain you can't do nothing with it. but it may take up to 24-72 hours and from their opinion it is normal, fortunately in my cases it did not take more then 6 hours.
Another Problem is if you use gmail address for example for sending mails from your site it will send SPF error message to your mail and will not send email. I had same problem and asked for help via chat and Support guy told me that he fixed it but problem still existed and then after a while ago I again contacted support and now I was told that I need to add spf record for all domains separately by myself.
I am sure that after some time I will find some other stupid things on this hosting, but I need to get used to it until my service ends :(
When I told that it only takes few minutes on other hostings to assign ssl this is what I got as answer: "I cannot comment other hosting, it is like you ask Volkswagen why Mercedes have something different, yet they are both just cars."
But from my oppinion other hostings sell cars which only need keys in it and it will take you anywhere, while A2Hosting sell you just car parts and you need first to build a car and only after you will be able to drive, but nowone tells you this when you pay for it, you only find out it later.
I would understand this on Dedicated servers, but shared servers mostly are purchased by non-tech people for their blogs or small business and they need some ready to go solutions, but they are forced to learn Cpanel features to make everything work and this is terrible.
Easily the worst host in Ireland, I'm currently moving sites with PHP 5.4, and constantly get hack issues from folks on BK. T...展开
he CP they operate is around 10+ years and still mind numbing to use. Support want you off the ticket asap. No server upgrades, nothing good I can say here. They are not cheap either you get a legacy setup with no real cpanel or any proper admin setup.
