My friend needs a shared account and a2hosting.com
are under his consideration, which host is better to sign up with and why?
I didn't have any experience with both web hosting deal.
If you need further details try to read some web hosting reviews.
Personally i hosted my own site with a help of TuckTail.com
I never had any server down problem.
