Why we like Siteground?
Here’s why we really like Siteground:
1. Speed – Having tried several hosting platforms, we discovered that websites hosted on Siteground have far shorter loading them. The speed of a website affects the search engine ranking and user experience. Hence, speed is utmost importance when selecting Siteground. There are 2 key reasons why websites hosted with Siteground are much faster — Siteground’s technology and distributed datacenters. All sites hosted with Siteground get cached and this improves the site’s speed by up to 5 times! They cache both their static resources and the dynamic PHP output. If you are a non-IT person, you really do not need to check out how to improve your site’s speed. Just focus on your business and let Siteground’s experts work on your site’s performance. Siteground has a distributed infrastructure. SiteGround customers enjoy free in-house built CDN service that significantly speeds up the loading speed for all site visitors across the globe.

2. User-friendly Dashboard & Reliable software – Siteground’s dashboard is super easy to use and you can build a website with a temporary domain if you have not decided on your domain name. You can install the WordPress website with just a few clicks, access and manage your files, email accounts and databases without having to use FTP. Everything is super easy!
The only thing we did not really like is that the pricing plans does not come with free domain privacy protection. The promotional hosting price plans for first year is really competitive, you get about 70 to 80% discount. However, after the first year, the price plans are not as competitive as companies such as Dreamhost. If speed and performance are important to you, then Siteground would be the best choice.
