About A2 Hosting

The Innovative, Fast Web 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 (originally calling our web hosting company Iniquinet). 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.
