Choosing a hosting solution can be very overwhelming with the wealth of options available so if you’ve stumbled across this article, stop reading, click on the link below and prepare to be very satisfied with one of the best hosting solutions with packages for all types of situations.
Why We Choose SiteGround
Competitive Pricing – The three different packages range from $9.95/mo – $29.95/mo USD however a 60% discount is provided if you purchase a minimum of a 1 year subscription. This gets you one of the best hosting solutions I’ve ever used for $3.95/mo – $11.95/mo USD.
The Startup package is great for most situations and is the cheapest at $3.95USD. With this plan you get 10GB of space and bandwidth for 10,000 monthly visitors. This is good for people looking to host one domain. If you need to host more than one domain or expect to have more then 10,000 visitors per month you will need to start looking at the GrowBig and GoGeek packages
Speed – The first important factor for speed is the storage hardware and with all packages you are getting access to Solid State Drives (SSD). This is 1000X faster then traditional hard drives.
Other technologies used to provide optimal performance include NGINX Web Servers, Super Cacher, CDN, HTTP/ 2, and PHP7/HHVM. All of these technologies are built to speed up your page loading. So make sure your code is clean and your media is optimized for web so that you can take advantage of these excellent benchmarks.
Free SSL with Let’s Encrypt – Encrypting your website has never been easier, with the click of a button you’ll be loading under the HTTPS protocol which is quickly becoming mandatory to ensure safe browsing across the web.
Quick installers and automatic updates of core CMS files – Quickly install the core files for Joomla, WordPress, Magento, and PrestaShop. If you use the auto installer feature your core files will be kept up to date with an email sent to the account administrator the day before. This gives you plenty of time to make sure you have a backup ready and your site will always have the latest version of your CMS.
Other reasons to choose site ground include live chat support, excellent security, server side scans, intuitive cpanel, decent domain management tools, a reliable FTP or web based file manager and excellent documentation.
