While standard hard drives can only perform hundreds of input/output operations per second, our SSDs perform thousands every second! With no moving parts and no bottlenecks, our SSDs can help your site really fly!

Some hosts claim to offer Solid State Drive Hosting but only host your OS or MySQL databases, not your files.  We use SSD for everything so you get the biggest speed boost possible. That's why our SSD Hosting loads pages faster than our competition and why even we host our site on SSDs.

The "A2" in our name stands for Ann Arbor, the city where we're heardquartered? Nicknamed named Tree Town, Ann Arbor is home to over 150,000 trees! This is a big reason we protect the environment for future generations:

  • 100% Carbon Neutral - Since 2007 we have worked with Carbonfund.org to help in their creation of clean, renewable energy and CO2 reductions on a global scale.
  • Telcommuting – Prevents unnecessary CO2 emmissions from daily commutes to an office.
  • Recycling Older Servers – Instead of piling up in a landfill, we re-use them as internal servers, dedicated servers for clients with lower resource requirements & resell public.
  • Planting Trees – We've run promotions like planting 3-trees for each package sold.
  • Reducing Trash – We reduce our waste with practices like using coffee mugs instead of disposable coffee cups when in the office.
