Editor's Review & Recommendation

Looking at SiteGround from the atypical consumer’s point of view I am both excited and yet disappointed at the same time.

Their performance is certainly top notch and having an excellent customer support team simply makes that even better. Yet from this perspective I also feel that their renewal prices are a little high for me to swallow. There is a caveat though. If you need this kind of top-notch performance, SiteGround is as good as gold since to be honest this level of service is hard to find, even in a market inundated with web hosting providers. Developers may also take some issue as many of their shared plans are quite limited in that sense.

SiteGround User Satisfication

    Sharon Hurley Hall

    "Upgraded Hosting, With Speed and Security Improvements"

    I recently moved a couple of my sites to SiteGround, and I couldn’t be happier. After installing their recommended WordPress plugin, the transfer was seamless and quick, and I was able to get started working on my site straight away.

    I love the built in tools for SSL and caching, and the automatic backups. The ability to easily set up a staging site is a plus, too.

    Another good feature is the automatic optimization with the SiteGround plugin. My site is much faster. So far, I’m very happy, and am thinking about moving more of my sites to SiteGround.

    Yes, recommend
