This is my opinion. I have used one other hosting company that I will not mention because I don’t have anything nice to say.
Some of the links on this page are affiliate links. I will get a commission for you purchasing thru my link at no extra cost to you. You might think I am biased because of this, but I actually am affiliated with the other one I won’t mention and they pay affiliates more. I will only recommend what I use and love. Siteground has three plans that are all 60% off. With that discount, the prices are $3.95 a month, $5.95 a month, and $11.95 a month. They offer too many features to list them all here. To find out the details on everything they offer with these plans visit www.siteground.com/go/techie. Otherwise, check out my pros and cons below.

1. Their customer service is unbelievable.
Customer Service Response Time: Phone – immediate response Chat – immediate Tickets – 8 minutes Check out their stats If you’ve ever been on hold for hours then get hung up on when it’s your turn. You know how frustrating that is. Siteground has the fastest response time of 11 other hosting sites. They ranked the best for chat and ticket. The phone, they were neck and neck with two other companies. Siteground has the fastest response time of 11 other hosting sites. They ranked the best for chat and ticket. The phone, they were neck and neck with two other companies. You can find tons of customer reviews here
2. They will migrate your site for free.
Which saved me money because I couldn’t figure it out for the life of me. Other sites charge $100+ to migrate. I also used customer service quite a few times with questions that I felt dumb for asking but they responded fast, within minutes, and explained everything to me. They will walk you through setup and install.
3. Website load time
They are one of the fastest. This is important. If you’ve ever visited a website and it took forever to load. What did you do? Chances are you left! You don’t want people leaving your site.
- Industry average loading time: 4,7 sec
- Siteground loading time without cache: 1,7 sec
- Siteground loading time with cache: 1,3 sec
I still don’t understand a lot of these terms, but they pride themselves on the best security. They offer free SSL Certificates. User apps Autoupdates Own firewall security rules The most stable platform
Their uptime is 99.99%. There isn’t any company with 100%. If I’m wrong then someone let me know. You can check your current websites real time status here for free. It will let you know if there are any problems with your current host servers.
Only 1 so far: The only con so far is the same with most other hosting company. They advertise a monthly rate but you have to pay for a year upfront. On the flip side, they have a 30-day money back guarantee.
Don’t have the money but still want to become self-hosted?
