Unfair business practices and sketchy security

Service used: Shared - GrowBig
It's a commodity service just like a myriad of others, and you simply expect it to perform which it certainly does. Like the staging functionality for the wordpress. The tech support is great too.

Exceptional Variety & Great Service

SiteGround is one of the top web hosting companies on the market today.  They take pride in the fact that they offer an extensive list of different services to choose from including shared hosting, cloud hosting a fully dedicated servers.

They also have data centers in Chicago, IL, Amsterdam and Singapore, which makes them an excellent choice for people from nearly every part of the world.

All their web hosting packages comes with unlimited traffic as well as free emails and unlimited databases, which is nice.  The lowest level package comes with a free domain name, but this package only allows one site which is somewhat more limited than most other web hosts are offering today.

An interesting feature of SiteGround is that they tell you approximately how much total traffic each of their web hosting solutions is designed to handle.  Of course, these are just estimations, but it is a great bit of information that will certainly help newer webmasters to decide what they need and when they may need to upgrade.

Overall, this is a great web hosting company with many features that help them to stand out from the crowd.

Exceptional support and up-time

SiteGround offers 24/7/365 technical support by phone, email or live chat.  There have been some complaints by users that it can be a bit tedious to get to an actual support technician since they want you to use their automated tools first.  Fortunatly, however, these tools often work quite well if you give them a try.

SiteGround boasts an impressive 99.9% up-time for all their web hosting services.

They also have custom security solutions for all the websites that they host, which will help to protect you from hackers, DDOS attacks and much more.  This type of added security is becoming increasingly important due to the frequent hacking and other attacks that are targeting smaller websites these days.

In the even that your site is hacked or is experiencing any other type of problem you can often get it addressed immediately either through one of their self-help or automated services.  If those don't work, there is always a skilled technician available to help.

Perfect for Beginners & Experts alike

The list of features offered by SiteGround is quite impressive.  The first thing you will notice when you sign up with their hosting is that they provide excellent initial support.  In addition to just configuring your server, they will help you set up a WordPress or Joomla site to get you started right away.

Included in all their packages are some very nice templates for either WordPress or Joomla, which can help you to have a great looking custom site in no time.

When it comes to all the 'normal' features offered by web hosting companies, SiteGround is fairly competitive.  They offer between 10GB of disc space in their entry level package and up to 30GB of space on their higher end shared hosting service.

One thing that many people will actually like is the fact that this company has a fairly limited number of different packages at each level. This is much less confusing for users who aren't experts with web hosting services.  For example, on the shared hosting options there are just three to choose from.  If you are just going to make one site, you'll likely want their StartUp services.  For additional sites, you can choose from one of their larger two options.  Overall, this makes the whole decision making process much simpler.

Competitive prices for the features you get

The prices at each level seem to be slightly higher than you might see on other sites.  The fact is, however, that you get what you pay for.  Even at the entry level hosting services you are going to be getting some extra services that make it well worth the extra money.

In reality, the prices are really only a dollar more per month than you might see on other sites for the entry level hosting, and about the same for other packages.  Most people will almost certainly find that this extra money is well spent given the great features they will get when they sign up with this hosting company.

Summary

Great Services, Extensive Options

Overall this is one of the best web hosting companies available. They really offer a lot of different features to choose from, without it becoming overwhelming  You are given a limited number of choices to choose from when it comes to the actual hosting packages, which most people find actually makes it easier to ensure you get the right one for your hosting needs.

Pros

  • Simple Setup for New Users
  • Excellent automated and live support available
  • Unlimited bandwidth, emails and databases

Cons

  • Can be time consuming to get through automated support to speak with a live technician
  • Prices are slightly higher than some competitors
