A2 Web Hosting Coupons are Automatic

Actually, it’s a bit misleading to call these coupons. A2 hosting doesn’t really have coupons in the traditional sense. Rather, promo codes are applied automatically to your purchases as shown here:

Coupon Codes Applied by Default

More to the point, there’s no space to enter any coupon codes during checkout. The base coupons are applied, you’re shown the discount, and that’s it!

A2 Hosting Coupon Code is Automatic

So why go through all the trouble of having coupon codes, to begin with? I guess they just want people to get the feeling that they’re doing some savvy shopping under the guise of enforced coupon codes 🙂

But the Discounts are Real – Coupons or Not

Apart from the slight sleight of hand here, there’s no denying that A2 hosting has some pretty sweet discounts even with the default coupon codes. The shared web hosting discount of 51% off is rather good.

No Free Domain

A2 hosting doesn’t offer free domains with its shared hosting plans. Considering that the lowest price starts at $4.40/month, it’s certainly not the cheapest out there. Especially since hosts like SiteGround have plans starting at 3.95/month and include a free domain.

HOWEVER, SiteGround’s initial discounts are also far steeper. This means that once the honeymoon period wears off, and you start paying the full price for your plans, A2 hosting is more affordable than others. For this reason, A2 hosting doesn’t lead you into the trap of paying more for web hosting.

No A2 Hosting Renewal Coupon

These coupons here are only valid for the first billing cycle. You can purchase hosting for up to 3-years or 36-months, and the discount will apply for each month of that first period. However once that ends, you start paying the full renewal price for each consecutive time period.

There’s no getting around this, but it’s hardly surprising. NO web hosting carries forward the initial discount except in very special cases like the advanced InMotion dedicated server plans.

A2 Shared and Basic WordPress Plans are Equivalent

In the table above, you can see that the prices and discounts for the basic WordPress and basic shared plans are exactly the same. This is because they pretty much are the same! You can choose which application to pre-install on your hosting during the checkout process of shared hosting, so there’s really no difference.

A2 MANAGED WordPress Hosting is Different

By contrast, the managed WordPress hosting is a different ball game. It comes with advanced features like staging, the turbo engine, pre-compiled .htaccess files etc. And accordingly, the prices of managed WordPress hosting is much higher as well.

Like most web hosts, A2 feels the need to add a separate “WordPress” plan at the same price as shared hosting, so that’s what they’ve given us. But the real power and difference comes with their managed WordPress solutions.

A Truly Huge Number of Plans – But Poorly Displayed

In contrast with providers like DreamHost who have a limited number of plans, A2 Hosting has a plan for everyone. 3 separate VPS plans, 3 plans for dedicated servers, 3 plans for managed WordPress hosting, and 3 plans for cloud hosting.

My only complaint is that many plans are not visible from the home screen! The managed WordPress plans are missing, and the cloud plans are nowhere to be seen either. They exist as fully-fledged solutions, but their accessibility is limited.

On the whole, A2 Hosting is a “complete” provider. They cater to the low end of the market with shared hosting plans as cheap as any of the others. On the other hand, they also give you access to high-end machines, with everything in between!
