SiteGround Review: A Best and Reliable web hosting provider

by Vishwajeet Kumar

Web hosting is a backbone of any online business. You cannot survive your online business or blog with a poor web hosting company. Finding a reliable web hosting is a very difficult job as the industry is flooded with a poor and cheap web hosting provider.

In this post, I am going to share a detailed review of Siteground. Which is one of the best and reliable web hosting provider?  I am personally using this hosting provider and pretty much satisfied with them. So, let’s get started…

Introduction

Siteground

Siteground is one of the leading and #1 web hosting provider. SiteGround was founded in 22nd March 2004 by a group of university students.  They have currently 400+ employees and host more than 2,000,000 domains. They have really proved themselves by providing quality and fastest web hosting services.

Features

They are currently offers shared, WordPress, Woo-commerce, and cloud servers. They also provide enterprise hosting, Reseller hosting, and dedicated servers. In this post, I am talking about their WordPress hosting.

There is actually no difference between their shared and WordPress hosting. The general features are the same and pricing is also the same. However, some extra features come with WordPress hosting like Stagging, auto WordPress update, SiteGround Git and other WordPress related features.

Their WordPress hosting comes with some great and essential features like:

1. Crafted for WordPress

There WordPress Hosting is especially designed for WordPress. Here, you will get adequate and robust features that help you run a successful WordPress blog. So, if you are about to start your own self hosted WordPress blog then WordPress hosting by SiteGround is a great choice for you.

Security is a big concern for today’s technology driven world. If your blog does not have a SSL then it might create issues with your blog. Major web browsers like Chrome and Firefox show warning signs to users who are opening non https sites. SiteGround offers you Free SSL certificates powered by Letsencrypt.

3. Free Daily Backups

You cannot take the risk as uncertainty can happen to your blog at any time. That’s why I recommend bloggers to keep a backup of their blog at regular interval. SiteGround offers free daily backups. You can easily restore your site with just a single click.

Making changes on your site has never been easier. You can make a copy of your site with a click, work on it, and then push the changes live with our staging tool. This will save your time and efforts and you show a blog without any error.

Hi Vishwajeet,

Nice review of Siteground web hosting company. I have read a lot about Siteground and their web hosting services. Though I’m with Namecheap at the moment and enjoying every moment of it.

Thanks for sharing, Vishwajeet.

Thanks Vishwajeet.
This review is what I needed to read. I’m currently with Bluehost and I like them a lot. But my site is starting to lag a bit and am currently looking for a faster host that won’t break the bank.
Maybe SiteGround is the one?

All super reasons Vishwajeet. Many blogging buddies of mine love SiteGround. My British=based VPS works awesome for me but I keep SG in mind for sure bro.

Lately hearing a lot of good things about SiteGround. Most important is backups which they already seem to offer.

Hi Vishwajeet,

Siteground is an excellent web hosting service provider, and I have been using their services for the past two years. However, where I’m concerned is the section where you stated that they offer free migration. Please, correct me if I’m wrong. Did they start the free migration process recently, or has it been part of their packages? I ask because I contacted them earlier ts year to help me migrate my other blog to Sotegroung, but they plainly told me to pay for the service, which at the time they asked me to pay $142. Thus, I’m curious. Please, confirm.

Hello Moss,

They offer free website migration from their Growbig and gogeek plan. You cannot get free website transfer in their starter plan.
