SiteGround Web-Hosting Review

SiteGround Web-Hosting Review

SiteGround Web-Hosting review highlights several reasons why I switched to this platform and the features I love. First and foremost, five years after launching my three blogs, I was fed up with recurring issues that wreaked havoc on my ability to consistently create content.

For example, I encountered constant upselling, malware, slow website speed, and a lack of customer service with my previous host. Moreover, the support team at the other company addressed most of the issues with a pitch about a service they sell that would eliminate the problem. Eight out of 10 times they offered me help to the tune of multiple service tickets for $80-plus.

Without fail, the issues I encountered after automatic WordPress updates often caused downtime that required me to get my web developer to resolve the issue. Similarly, there were many times when I spent hours researching issues in forums. A recent issue with autosaving was one of the most annoying problems I’ve had so far. If my web developer wasn’t available, I looked to my web-host for support and diagnostic help.

Plugins, WordPress, and other non-server issues are rarely covered by hosting tech support. However, security and malware fell under my coverage plan.

Choose the Hosting Plan That Best Suits Your Needs

Now that you have a general idea about why I switched, I’ll tell you about my positive experiences with SiteGround. I chose the GrowBig plan because I have multiple websites and this plan suited my style. SiteGround also offers free professional migration for one website and a free plugin to migrate the content for my other websites. My move was seamless and the team was quick to reply and guide my developers and me along. The best part of the deal is my monthly expenses have significantly decreased with the GrowBig hosting plan. SSL certificates, security, site backups, and hosting are covered under my plan.

Better yet, my websites are reaping the rewards of faster load time and more traffic since the move to SiteGround and anytime I’ve had a question or concern, the support team promptly responded to the ticket. This is the type of service that makes me smile and I look forward to blogging. The SiteGround support team often reply within minutes, depending on their service call volume.

Rejoice and Spread the Word

Immediately after I switched to SiteGround, I knew I had to tell my readers about this awe-inspiring company. As a result, I’m now an affiliate and rejoice the move EVERY DAY. Keep in mind, I only recommend products and services I use and trust. Likewise, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about my experience.
