There are so many hosting companies around today it can be hard to choose the best one for your website. I’ve tried several hosting companies over the years and experienced many others through my clients with varying results. Then a year or so ago I discovered Siteground and haven’t looked back since.
In the year I’ve been with them I’ve had several sites hosted with them and never once had a problem, at least not a problem that was their fault – I’ve had several issues that were caused by me and Siteground were more than happy to help and out and point me in the right direction where needed on each occasion.
WordPress hosting plans
Siteground have 3 different WordPress plans called ‘StartUp’, ‘GrowBig’ and ‘GoGeek’. Start up is the cheapest of the plans and has the least features, it’s great for one website just starting out that isn’t likely to get to much traffic and doesn’t need lots of fancy extras. As you move up into the other two plans you start to get a lot more features and suitability for more traffic. ‘GoGeek’ can easily handle around 100k hits a month and if you are getting more than that they also have VPS and dedicated servers available for your larger demands.
Speed & Reliability
Arguably two of the most important features needed in a great WordPress host are speed and reliability. You need your site to be quick and for it to always be online and Siteground have got you covered there.
With their very own ‘SuperCacher’ technology your WordPress sites will be loading blazing fast with very little effort from you and the support team will be more than happy to share some extra tips and tricks to get your site loading as quick as possible.
The hosting Industry average loading time is 4.7 seconds, – Siteground’s average loading time without cache is 1.7 seconds and with cache only 1.3! Those extra seconds make all the difference and can often by the difference between a user sticking around or leaving to a competitor.
Since I’ve been with Siteground I’ve had 100% up time for the year.
The support at Siteground is fantastic, they have a large knowledgeable team who are always ready to help and go beyond the call of duty to make sure you are up and running and happy with the service. It’s incredibly quick as well I’ve literally never had to wait more than 10 seconds to be connected to a chat representative (I’d often be waiting over an hour or more with some previous hosting providers!)
Siteground costs just a little more than the likes of your budget hosting companies such as Hostgator or Godaddy, but for a couple of dollars extra you are getting so much more – Faster, more reliable hosting and fantastic support. The few extra dollars each month are going to save you potentially many hours of headaches.
Usually prices would start at $6.95 a month but we’ve managed to get a massive 60% discount for your first year of hosting. Bringing the starter plan down to just $2.75 a month for your first year or the top plan for just under 10 dollars a month.

Siteground have quickly become my favourite WordPress hosting solution and I can’t recommend them enough.
Quick and reliable servers coupled with lots of features and great support all at a very reasonable price. I now exclusively recommend them to all my clients and they have all been very happy with the service. Siteground also offer a 30 day money back guarantee so if for any reason you weren’t satisfied they will refund all of your hosting costs – something I can’t imagine they need to do very often!
