Why I have Selected Siteground for my Blog?

I am using Siteground from last one year. I was looking for a reliable hosting to take my blog to the next level. After bit of research, I finally found siteground and thought to give it a try.

I found SIteground price is resonable (compare to other competitors) and it offers unlimited bandwidth with free CDN and SSL.

I will discuss all the features of Siteground in detail which is important and given me confidence to me for my blog reliability. 

Pros Of Siteground

1

Faster Loading Time of Blog

This is the first reason why I started looking for a new hosting. A good web hosting will automatically boost up your blog. Loading time or speed is very important for your blog.

You may end up loosing visitors if your site is slow or does not loads in 1 to 2 seconds.

My blog loading time is now less than 2 seconds, thanks to Siteground.

The reasons for Sitegrond faster loading are; SSD, Faster web server, Super cache, CDN support, Http2 and php 7 support.

  • SSD
  • Faster Server
  • super cache/CDN

Siteground provides you a WordPress plugin Super cache to further speed up loading of static as well as dynamic content. It is free with all plans of Siteground.

It also provides integration with Cloudflare (CDN) which will further speed up your blog with static content served faster.

99.99% Uptime As Promised

Most of the hosting providers promised 99.99% uptime but they have more downtime. I have never had any major issue with Siteground.

It is hardly that my blog is down and siteground is doing a great job.

The reason behind this uptime are:

As per Siteground, they are using cutting edge redundant web server which makes sure site is up even if one node fails.


Technology like pro active monitoring which sense the problem early and try to fix it as soon as possible.


Automatic backup and backup on demand is a great option in Siteground to make sure you can restore your site in case of any attack.

Excellent Customer Support

This is one of the part which impressed me a lot in Siteground.


Siteground has professional WordPress expert who are ready to help you anytime.

You have option of live chat, Tickets, and phone 24/7 to contact support.

5

FREE CDN AND SSL

For every WordPress blog, SSL is a must. Google and other browser will show you a warning if you site is not protected with SSL.

Siteground provides you a free Standard SSL certificate from Lets encrypt. The best part is it is preinstalled on your WordPress site. So you do not have to do anything.


CDN is another feature which will speed up your blog when accessed from different geographical location.

Siteground has a integration with Cloudflare to offer this service free.

FREE 30 Days Backup

This is the part I loved most. Siteground offers 30 days free backup on all plans.

normally backup cost around $45/year but it is free with Siteground.

Also, restores are free on GrowBig and GoGeek plans and Just $19.95 one time fee for basic plan.

You have the option for on demand backup with a small fee.

7

Free Staging Environment

Siteground offers free staging environment from GoGeek plan onwards. 

Staging environment is like a development environment (exact replica of your live website) where we can test risky changes.

For example sometime before you activate a plugin on real environment, you can test it on staging without damaging your live blog.

It is a great feature which comes absolutely free with Siteground.

Cons Of Siteground

There are two things, I think can be corrected.

First one is price, when we select month to month; the price goes way too high because of initial setup fee of $24.95 which seems to be unnecessary.

The second one is storage which is limited in all the plans. So If you are looking for unlimited storage, this is not for you.

Do I Recommend Siteground

Yes, very much. This is the best and cheapest option available in the market for WordPress hosting. So far my one year experience is wonderful. 

The best feature I loved is reasonable price, Free CDN and SSL, 24/7 Support, Free daily backups, Free email services, Staging tools to test changes, Free WordPress transfer by experts, and cache plugins to speed up your blog.

You cannot beat these features with any other hosting in the market.

Please go ahead and try Siteground with 30 days money back guarantee.
