About Our Fast Web Hosting Company

What is A2 Hosting about? Being the web hosting company where you always get:


  1. Screaming Fast Page Loads
  2. Amazing Uptime
  3. Superb 24/7/365 Guru Crew Support
  4. The Best Developer Tools


Sounds simple, right? Honestly, it's taken a lot of hard work and we're never satisfied. We love what we do and we enjoy making our customers happy. If it were easy, every host would offer the same level of service. They don't, and we won't settle for good enough.


We're focused on delivering the type of web hosting company we would want to use ourselves. It means ultra-reliable performance on our exclusive SwiftServer platform with no hidden fees. It means US-based around the clock support from our Guru Crew. We're developers too, so when a new technology comes along we're just as eager to use it as you are. We'll make it available to you as quickly as we can. 


Like we said, our goal is to be the web hosting company we would want to use ourselves. We hope that means you want to join us.

FutureServe Green Hosting


Since our launch back in 2003, A2 Hosting has been headquartered in Ann Arbor (AKA "Tree Town"). Take a walk around town and you're bound to come across one of Ann Arbor's 50,000 trees or 150 parks. This is just one of the reasons we feel it's our duty to contribute to the fight against global warming. The goal of our FutureServe Green Hosting initiative is to protect our environment for our future generations.


We're a proud partner of Carbonfund.org, a leading organization in the battle against global climate change. Since 2007, we've supported their reforestation efforts and continued development of clean, renewable sources of energy. In addition to being 100% carbon neutral, we have implemented a number of our own green policies like our employee telecommuting practices and the re-use of older hardware. Our fully green Icelandic data center even uses geo-thermal cooling so no carbon footprint is made.
