A-A-HÉBERGEMENT is a French web hosting company that offers affordable cPanel plans with a free domain, plus pricier ASP.NET hosting plans. Pre-sales support is pretty responsive.

Overview

A-A-HÉBERGEMENTA-A-HÉBERGEMENT (which translates into English as “AA Hosting”) started its journey way back in 1999. This Paris-based host, which is part of Lexicon Web Hosting (LWS), offers shared web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, and domain services from its French-language website.

Features and Ease of Use

A-A-HÉBERGEMENT offers nine cloud-based shared hosting plans (three each for cPanel, ASP.NET, and WordPress), three reseller hosting plans, and three VPS plans. The three cPanel shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 1 to unlimited hosted sites
  • cPanel control panel
  • 100 GB to unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited traffic
  • 6 to 14 shared vCPUs
  • 8 GB to 32 GB RAM
  • 15 to unlimited email addresses
  • 2 to unlimited MySQL databases
  • Support for PHP, Perl, and Python
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Directory, hotlink, and anti-leech protection
  • AWStats

There are a few different ways to create your website. First, you can use the Softaculous auto-installer that lets you install more than 300 popular CMS and other apps — such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, or OpenCart — with a single click. Second, you can upload your existing website files via FTP or SFTP. Third, you can use the website builder, which means you don’t need to be a professional website designer or developer. The three SiteBuilder plans come with a free domain.

Hosted websites sit on SSD storage in RAID 10 configuration for improved speed and reliability, and VPS plans allow SSH root access for complete control of your server.

Pricing and Support

A-A-HÉBERGEMENT’s cPanel shared hosting plans start cheap and progress to be competitively priced. As you might expect, the ASP.NET hosting plans are pricier. The two higher plans include a free domain.

Shared hosting plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, whereas VPS plans come with a 28-day money-back guarantee. In both cases, you get a month to change your mind about your hosting commitment.

Contact this company’s customer support team by telephone (during working hours on weekdays), live chat (also including weekends), or online contact form. Although I had to call on Google Translate to converse in French, I got answers to my initial questions via the live chat channel:
