This new website hosting site talks a big game, and it turns out it can put its money where its mouth is. A2 Hosting's web hosting speed is the highest this review site has ever seen at 376ms over a period of 10 months. How do they do it? HostingFacts knows:
"A2 Hosting is taking extra precautions to limit the number of people on ‘shared’ hosting servers and implementing additional functionality like caching which stores information in people’s browsers (thereby limiting the number of times they have to go back and request information from your website over and over and over again)."
Digital reported that A2's website speeds are 20x faster with its powerful Turbo Drive.
It's worth noting that A2 Hosting is also working to be environmentally friendly and they've had neutral carbon emissions since 2007. Your speed won't come at a cost.

, A2 Hosting was rated 4.0 out of 5 stars for hosting uptime.
Very few web hosting platforms can reach the 100% uptime promise, and unfortunately, A2 Hosting is one of them. The platform once had a higher uptime, but from December 2017 to September 2018, the average uptime dropped to 99.91%. While this might seem like a "good enough" type of deal, website downtime can cost you $7,900 per minute if you're running a high-traffic site.
Another review website explained that while A2 Hosting does promise 99.9% uptime, there are certain circumstances where they won't honor it:
- During routine maintenance and upgrade periods that are scheduled ahead of time
- During outages that result from circumstances beyond the control of A2 Hosting
Overall, it looks like A2 Hosting might be promising more than it performs in uptime, but it is still a solid choice due to its other benefits.
