1- Thanks for taking the time to talk to hostrating.net. Can you please tell our readers a little bit about yourself, history you have in hosting industry and enlighten us how A2Hosting started and how it grew to what it is today?
My name is Brad Litwin and I’ve been the Marketing Manager for A2 Hosting for 4 years now. I got my start in marketing as an affiliate manager with a previous company and was lucky to get hired in by A2 Hosting. Our CEO founded A2 Hosting in 2003 and we really grew by offering the best support for the most popular developer technologies. It all started with A2 Hosting being one of the very first hosts to provide support for PHP 5.
2- A2Hosting offers many different solutions and services; can you briefly talk about each of them?
We sure do! We offer Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS Hosting, Managed VPS Hosting and Dedicated Hosting accounts. Whether you’re a developer, a hobbyist or a small or enterprise level business, we have a solution that will make sense for your readers. Just contact our friendly sales staff and we’ll be happy to help you discover the most logical solution.

You’re going to find the best support for the most popular developer technologies at A2 Hosting. Whether its PHP, MySQL, Ruby on Rails, Python, Perl, or PostgreSQL etc., web developers are going to love our service.
4- A2Hosting has been given many Hosting awards. Can you go into a little more detail about it?
We’re not here to win awards, but we proudly display them on our site because this is a testament to our awesome support staff.
5- Please share more about A2Hosting’s data centers and reliability?
Our datacenter is located in Southwest Michigan. Your readers can find more details on our website. When you host at A2 Hosting, you get the benefit of our 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Yes we do. We offer free cPanel transfers and will give customers a $25 transfer credit.
7- We feel very important about customer support. What does A2Hosting do in terms of customer support? Also, what support options (live chat, email, toll free phone)?
We agree! Our real support is one of the aspects that set us apart from our competition. We definitely have in-house support. You can reach us via email, live chat and phone. We also have a wiki and knowledgebase that customers can probably discover an answer to their question without even contacting support.
8- What are the major changes you are planning to do in the future? What are the short term goals for A2Hosting and where do you see you going in the next couple of years?
I have to be careful what I say, but we are always looking to add cool features to our service like our free CDN, CloudLinux OS and our free Server Rewind backups.
