1. A2 Hosting (www.A2Hosting.com)
- Uptime: 99.91%
- Load Time: 392ms
- Support: 4/5
- Website: www.A2Hosting.com
Note from editor: We’ve put A2 Hosting here because they had the best load time. If we only take a look at their uptime, they wouldn’t be listed as #4th.
A2 Hosting is quite new in the WordPress hosting niche (founded in 2001). They became more popular only lately.
They claim to be 20x faster than their competitors. Somehow, they managed to achieve faster load time than SiteGround or HostGator.
They averaged 392ms in a period of 12 months. That is basically instant page loading, making impatient people happy because they won’t have to wait for pages to load. A2 Hosting implements caching, which stores data in a visitor’s browser, so they won’t have to request information from your website every time someone tries to access it.
Unfortunately, their uptime has slipped over the past few months to an average of 99.91% (currently 8 hours of downtime over a period of 12 months).
A2 offers 24/7 customer support through their live chat, email, phone, and ticketing systems. I checked this out by contacting their live support and they responded instantly with easy-to-understand responses.
- PROS: Fastest WordPress hosting, WordPress optimized servers
- CONS: Weak uptime (only 99.91%)
