Business Name: Aplus Customer Service

BBB Accreditation: No

Market Size: > 200 websites (#179 HRank list)

Growth Status: (by websites quantity): Decreasing

Aplus.net is a hosting provider with quite a controversial reputation on the Net. Based in Shoreview, MN, it has a long history, which dates back to 1993, full of records of being purchased and sold. Nowadays its owner is Deluxe Corp.

The most important thing that makes you want to research more is the abundance of negative reviews in which users report a lot of issues, such as SSL problems, “terrible customer service”, unreliable uptime, switching control panels often, and other issues.

Well, according to our data, however, this provider has much better performance than many and we can recommend it for a try.

Report for 2018

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • #19 and 8.6 HRank are the results for Aplus.net in 2018, and these are altogether very good results.
  • Only thrice in the monitoring period, the provider’s uptime got lower than 100%, however, only as low as 99.635%.
  • Though it wasn’t the fastest in terms of response time, it was close: 300-500ms. Very good, too.
  • Interestingly enough, such good performance didn’t stop websites from leafing and the provider from losing domains. It is unclear why it happened.
