A2 Hosting Domains: Review & Summary
A2 Hosting is your first step on the web, with extremely affordable domain registration, domain name transfers, and hosting plans to suit almost everyone.
The first step in registering your new domain is to check its availability, and if the domain is already registered A2 Hosting allows you to see when the domain is due to expire. Your next step is to open an account with A2 Hosting. Your contact details are made available to the WHOIS database, but for a very small annual fee you can purchase Privacy Protection that prevents your details being displayed to the public.
A2 Hosting provides clear instructions about exactly what your domain name is allowed to include, and what is not permitted (such as underscores and spaces). The same rules apply to all domain registers, but not all suppliers are clear about the requirements, which can cost you valuable time as you try to work out the rules for yourself.
A2 Hosting ordering is completely secure and backed by a 30-day money back guarantee. Setting up an account is simple, and the whole process usually takes under 15 minutes. Do you want an international domain such as .org.tw, .co.uk, .ca, or .de, for example? No problem. With A2 Hosting you can register a whole range of domain extensions, and international payments are also happily accepted. Once you’ve registered your new domain, it can take about 24 to 48 hours to activate the domain. If you’re transferring a domain, it can take up to five days for the domain to become active with A2 Hosting.
With A2 Hosting you can have multiple domain names pointing to the same website on your account, so you can capture visitors using common mis-spellings of your domain, or register all the available domain extensions to gather more visitors. You can also have add-on domains that point to different websites, which allows you to develop websites in multiple niches if you wish. If you’re not able to develop your domain yet, you can register it and “park” it until you’re ready.
Support is available 24/7 and 365 days of the year via toll-free phone (in the US), international phone, through the control panel that comes with your account, via the fully-searchable knowledge base and wiki, and through a ticketing system. There are also support and customer forums packed with helpful information and support, and every customer has access to extensive documentation and guides to help you get the most out of your web experience.
