“I chose A2 because I wanted shell access. I wanted a site to work on programming projects. I have the basic hosting package.

I was disappointed in the way they manage their disk space. They advertise ""unlimited"" space, but of course there are hard limits, 50GB or a fixed number if inodes. Turns out that these hard limits are intended as backstops -- in reality, whenever they start running short of disk space, they send customer support after customers who use ""much more than the average"" amount of disk space. So this means that you can be humming along, minding your own business, not having recently uploaded anything, and then bam, they run short and tell you that you're using too much. It would be much better to simply state up front how much disk space you get, period.

The processor/memory allotment is pretty anemic. Not really suitable for doing anything except serving out simple web pages or simple SQL queries. I was previously with Dreamhost, which provided more disk space and processor with less hassle. I have some large SQL files that I was unable to load into the A2 mysql installation due to memory limitations, but I was able to load these at dreamhost.

I ended up moving most of my stuff to VPS hosting service where I get more space and processor.

All in all, A2 basic hosting is just that, very basic hosting. Uptime is pretty good, though.”
