Open Source Matters is happy to announce a new Global Platinum Sponsorship agreement with A2 Hosting. Their support of the Joomla! Project is much appreciated.

A2 Hosting offers optimized Joomla hosting services as well as many other open source platforms.

You can get to know A2 a bit better by also visiting our recent Meet The Joomla Global Sponsors article posted in this month's edition of the Joomla Community Magazine.

I had a chance to inspect their hosting services from a customer's perspective for hosting a Joomla website and I was quite pleased at the process from signup and instant launch of the latest version of Joomla. The speed of the website was great on their SwiftServer platform with SSD servers.
A2 is currently running a promotion for 34% Off for new customers. Use coupon code HAPPY10 to save on your first invoice!

I suggest you get the Prime Web Hosting SSD (Solid State Drives) package for a Joomla CMS website to run fast and smooth. A2 also suggested this package to me when I told them I would like to evaluate their services.
A2 hosting also offers Free SSH access, free Server Rewind Backups, a free CDN to supercharge your site.

Thank you to A2 Hosting for sponsoring the Joomla Project and the Joomla Community.
