        You’ve most likely never known about A2 hosting. Neither have I at first. That is a disgrace.

        Since while they’re not as ‘web well known’s as BlueHost or HostGator, they claim to gloat velocities of up to 20X speedier.  They’ve additionally been around since 2001, once in the past known as Iniquinet (yes – great approach the rebrand). What’s more, have server farms far and wide in the US (Michigan), Europe (Amsterdam) and Asia (Singapore). Moreover, they make cases of ‘99.9% uptime’ and ‘master support’. (Alright, now it’s simply sounding pipe dream.)

        So what’s the decision?

        A blasting quick host with astounding uptime and extraordinary backing? On the other hand another organization who’s extraordinary with descriptive words, however can’t back it up with execution?

        How about we discover.

        To test for ourselves and give a fair-minded a2 hosting audit, we purchased their least expensive “Shared Plan” simply under a year prior and set up a fundamental WordPress site (uptime and pace information can be found here).

        A2 Hosting Server Speed Test

        We began to track server speed in 2016, results are appeared in the accompanying picture. Test site facilitated on A2 Hosting is pinged from different areas and contrasted and 10 million different locales utilizing Bitcatcha.

        How does the test work? As indicated by Bitcatcha, the instrument will pings a site URL from 8 distinct areas and measure how rapidly the server reacts. For every area, the apparatus will ping upwards of 3 times before getting the middle worth as the last result. Note that these reaction times have nothing to do with how well a site is enhanced for velocity. Rather, the test outcomes depend exclusively on server reaction speed (time to first byte) – henceforth, a usable metric to judge hosting speed.
