4 Reasons You Should Transfer Your Site to SiteGround
By Brianna Deleasa on November 11, 2017
SiteGround is an excellent hosting provider, famous for their legendary customer support and premium service quality. Whether you have a blog, portfolio or e-commerce website, they have the perfect hosting plan to fit your needs.
Throughout my web development career I've come to realize is that all web hosts are not made equal. I have hosted websites with every company from Dreamhost to GoDaddy to Rackspace. All of these companies have their ups and downs, but none of them seemed to be the perfect host.
Along came SiteGround! I switched to them five years ago and I haven't looked back since. I just regret that I didn't switch to them sooner! Why do I love SiteGround? I was hoping you would ask!
1. Your Site Never Goes Down
SiteGround boasts about their 99.99% uptime guarantee, and they aren't kidding. Every other host I've hosted my personal website with wasn't nearly as reliable as SiteGround. My website hasn't gone down once since switching to SiteGround (unless I blew it up myself of course).
They also have so many security measures in place to ensure their servers aren't hacked into. It's a win-win here!
2. Websites Load at the Speed of Light
The speed of your website is extremely important to your users. I know I've left a website many a times because it was loading slowly or not at all. SiteGround servers don't have that issue at all. They have SSD technology on all plans and are always utilizing the latest technologies including HTTP/2 and PHP7, which all play a part in keeping your site loading quickly.
SiteGround also offers a SuperCacher, which is a great tool for helping your website load fast. It speeds up the serving of the dynamic content, and also allows website speed optimization through memcached and Google page speed.
3. They Have Budget-Friendly Plans
You generally get what you pay for - and that holds true for most other companies that charge pennies for their hosting accounts. Those cheap accounts sound like a great deal, but in the end leave you with a crappy server and a slow website.
SiteGround's StartUp plan on their fast and reliable servers starts at just $3.95 per month. They also have more geeky plans with advanced features for a bit extra, though most small to medium sized websites will run smoothly on their StartUp plan.
4. They Have Many Developer-Friendly Features
As developers, we utilize many different technologies to do our jobs. For Wordpress developers, all of SiteGround's plans include a 1-Click installer, autoupdates, and the WP-CLI. On their GrowBig and GoGeek plans, they offer staging websites and Git preinstalled too. Your developer will thank you for having these features on your hosting plan!
SiteGround is the smart choice!
I can't recommend SiteGround enough. Their server uptime, performance, speed, and reliability are the best I've experienced by far. Being able to have caching and the developer resources are great additions to an already amazing deal. They are also affordable. Check them out today - I don't think you'll be disappointed!
