The A2 Hosting host has lots of different VPS plans available, including Linux, Windows, managed and unmanaged options. Currently, though, I will only add the managed Linux hosting to this website as that is by far the most popular option and makes it all easier to compare. If you go with an A2 Hosting managed VPS you can benefit from the huge coupon code discount on your initial period. The coupon codes are currently easily available on the VPS page on the A2 Hosting website. They should even apply automatically, but I found that it sometimes would need to be added manually when going back and forth a lot between the order pages.

Data center locations
Choose between 2 data centers in the USA and 1 in EU and 1 in Asia. The prices stays the same no matter which location you want for your server.

The A2 Hosting support team is based in the USA but with some agents around the globe, all hired by the US organization which should ensure high quality of their support. They offer 24/7 live chat support which is great. You can even add priority support if you have really important websites.

The VPS plans by Namecheap is no exception when it comes to their offerings of cheap and high-value services. However, they charge a pretty high price for upgrading the VPS plans to be managed.
Level of management
There are three levels of management you can choose for this VPS. User-responsible, Basic, and Complete.
All three of these include free customer support advice and initial VPS setup.
The price we listed here includes Complete server management.
You can save $25/mo if you go with User-responsible and $10/mo if you go with Basic. You would instead have to pay for work relating to core software changes, fixing server failures and restoring the server if it fails.
The free domain is not .com but a .website domain, and it is only free for the first year. After that, the standard Namecheap rates apply.
cPanel and Softaculous
cPanel is required when selecting the Basic or Complete server management plan.
Softaculous is optional extra and costs $1.5/mo.
With Complete management, you’ll get 50 GB of off-site backups storage.
