About Our Hosting Company

A2 Hosting - The Fast Hosting Company You've Been Searching For

Over the years, many customers have told us that they wish they would've found us sooner. We're glad you found us and are interested in learning more! We got our start back in 2001 when our CEO Bryan Muthig used his strong background and experience as a UNIX systems administrator to launch A2 Hosting.. We've been independently owned ever since!

While A2 Hosting was originally launched as a hobby, it was evident this side venture would grow into something more. And it has! From our roots in a two-room office in Ann Arbor, Michigan to hand picking the very best team members and data centers located around the globe. From hosting a couple sites for a few friends and family members to hosting thousands of prominent websites. From just offering Shared Web Hosting to a complete, fully scalable product line featuring Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Server solutions.

FutureServe Green Hosting

green hostingSince 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 company 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. We have also implemented a number of our own green policies like our employee telecommuting practices and the re-use of older hardware.
