For newer WordPress sites, we definitely recommend their high speed Shared Hosting solutions. These solutions are high speed and easy-to-use. They are the perfect springboard to get your site up and running. Once your site grows, or if you have an existing site, you may want to consider one of their Managed VPS plans. Their Managed VPS plans offer the same ease of use as their Shared Hosting, you’ll get more power and support from them. The good news is that at A2 Hosting, hosting plans are completely scalable and can grow as your site grows. That means you don’t have to worry about outgrowing your solution. They have a full lineup of services that we can seamlessly move your site into.
When you think of VPS Hosting, you probably think of a hosting solution featuring more resources and more power. You’re certainly correct on both accounts. You may also think that a VPS is designed only for web developers with years of experience. This may be the case at some hosting providers. That’s not the case at A2 Hosting.
Their Managed VPS plans include the user-friendly cPanel control panel that you use and love on Web Hosting plans. That means you get the power and resources of a VPS, but the same ease of use found with Web Hosting plans. It’s the best of both worlds!

Shared Hosting is an affordable solution perfect if you have a small blog, a personal website with minimal traffic or if you are launching a new website. At A2 Hosting, Shared Hosting is user-friendly making it ideal for both new and experienced users, regardless of resource needs.
Shared hosting, also sometimes referred to as virtual hosting, is a web hosting environment where each individual hosting account is stored on a single web server. Think of a web server as a very powerful computer loaded with resources. Each of the accounts on the server shares the server’s system resources. These resources include disk space, data transfer and server processing power.
Shared Hosting offers you an affordable solution to get your web site up and running because all the related server hosting costs are shared and spread out among the other users/accounts who are being hosted on that server.
It doesn’t matter if you have a Mac, Linux or Windows-based computer, you can choose our Linux Hosting regardless of your computer’s operating system. Your Shared server will support the very best versions of Apache, PHP, MariaDB and many more! That way you know you can host your favorite software solutions on our servers!
At A2 Hosting, a key advantage of Shared Web Hosting packages is obviously speed. However, the other pros of these plans include affordability and convenience. Their shared web hosting environment means they can offer reasonably priced web hosting plans because their customers are not only sharing server resources, but they are also spreading the cost of hardware, server maintenance, security updates and other costs among the other customers hosted on the server. As an A2 Hosting shared web hosting customer, you also do not have to worry about server uptime and technical support.
Their Shared Web Hosting packages each come with large amounts of resources like disk space, data transfer and email accounts that are perfect for your personal and small business websites.
cPanel hosting is a tried-and-true method of managing a website. Constant use has honed its functionality down to the most powerful tools available while at the same time making the presentation easy to understand and master. cPanel gives you, the webmaster, ultimate control over the content and presentation of your site – you can get your hands dirty in databases themselves, tap into the inner workings of your site, or leave it to more experienced hands via outside apps while at the same time holding on to the final say.
When you work with cPanel, you’re working with a choice – your website becomes and stays yours, enabling you to work with its content and presentation as much or as little as you want. Devote your time where you want to do so, not where you have to. Where other web management software forces you to learn its inner workings in order to be able to perform the simplest of tasks, cPanel’s graphic nature and intuitive presentation ensure that you won’t have to constantly be referring to documentation and message boards to accomplish the tasks you want.
