SiteGround website has a nice and modern design and easy navigation. You can easily find the necessary information on tariff plans. Shared hosting packages are not the cheapest but they include many useful options such as free daily backup, Cloudflare CDN and website builder. Also included in the price is the protection of the hosting account. For almost all packages you can select the server location. The company also provides hosting optimized for working with most popular CMS (Joomla, WordPress, WooCommerce, Magento, Drupal and PrestaShop) and hosting for students.
The company provides a paid trial period for a month for shared hosting packages. If you won't be satisfied money is returned but only within 30 days after purchase. For virtual and WordPress hosting the company offers users a panel of its own design. For cloud and reseller hosting cPanel is available. On a dedicated server you can order cPanel installation or install any other Linux-compatible controllers on your own.
The service has been successfully working for 10 years and this is a very impressive period in this niche. Over the years the company has firmly established itself in the market. Now it is a powerful service with data centers on three continents. Here more than 300 thousand web projects have found their refuge. Siteground is very popular and this brand is well known to many web developers.
The first thing that catches your eye when working with Siteground is the availability and ease of submitting information, the conciseness and elegance of the service package. You will not need to re-read each sentence several times to understand what you are actually offered in the end. The service also pleases with such amenities as a 30-day period for a refund in case of refusal of services, a domain as a gift when buying any of the tariff plans and much more.
As part of each of the tariff plans, 5 TB of allowed traffic per month and 5 dedicated IP addresses are provided. You can also choose from seven versions of PHP and two database management systems - MySQL or PostgreSQL.
Registration in the Siteground system occurs during the purchase of one of the services. The entire registration process is simple and concise. You will not be harassed by any refinements, additions and suggestions to buy something else. Choose a service, specify whether you need a domain (you receive it as a gift), fill out the form and after successful payment the service is at your disposal.
Reseller hosting is quite profitable: you pay only for the so-called “loans”. One loan is 12 months of hosting. To activate hosting for a client you need to use one loan. The advantage is that you can provide for example 6 months of hosting to one client then change the domain name and provide another 6 months of hosting to another client.
Cloud hosting packages are expensive but quite a lot of resources are provided for them. Prices range from $ 72 to $ 216 per month. In general the characteristics of tariff plans are good. You can also build your cloud using the constructor on the site.
Dedicated servers are expensive - from $ 246 and $ 675. The specifications look good but the processor models are outdated. You can find a better offer from other providers at a lower price.
Shared hosting packages can be purchased for a year, two or three; cloud hosting - for 1, 3, 6 months or a year. A dedicated server can be purchased for 1, 3 or 6 months. Hosting for students can be bought for 1 month.
For virtual and WordPress hosting the company offers users a panel of its own design. For cloud and reseller hosting, cPanel is available. On a dedicated server, you can order cPanel installation or install any other Linux-compatible controllers on your own.
For very newcomers there is a step-by-step installation system with detailed explanations and a full-fledged Wizard has been developed and implemented.
If you still have questions and need to talk with a live employee this will not be a problem either. Call center phones, online chat and a ticket system work for you around the clock. In an online chat you will first need to indicate the name, email and the question. After that they will either answer you instantly or they will tell you to wait a bit until the employee is free. And do not be scared if you see that there are 20 people waiting in line. There are plenty of employees and such lines are “absorbed” in minutes if not seconds. In the ticket system Siteground also guarantees the first response within 10 minutes, and not an hour or even a day like so many hosting providers. The staff are professional and exceptionally friendly.
Summing up, it’s worth to say with confidence that the Siteground team is well done. Over the 10 years of operation, the service has grown to an astounding scale and at the same time has not lost a bit as is often the case neither in uptime nor in the speed of work nor in the quality of technical support. As for the latter as already described this hosting is head and shoulders above so many renowned providers. After a detailed “scan” the most pleasant aftertaste remains and Siteground definitely wants to deal with.

All restrictions are indicated in the description of tariff plans. The Terms of Services agreement does not describe additional restrictions.
For all packages SiteGround provides protection against DDoS attacks, application firewall, free SSL and SGtool - antivirus and malware scanner. If you installed WordPress or Joomla the company is responsible for updating the core files and CMS plugins as well as for detecting and fixing vulnerabilities. So you don’t have to worry about the security of your sites or update files manually.
All reseller and shared hosting accounts are isolated from each other so if a neighboring account is infected with viruses or uses many resources your sites will not be affected. For all tariff plans, except for dedicated servers, the company provides daily backup.
On a dedicated server you can install any Linux distribution. Regarding the OS installed on the servers of virtual, cloud and reseller hosting, there is no clear information. According to the information received from technical support they have Linux OS installed.
The company provides round-the-clock support in live chat and over the phone. Representatives respond quickly, politely and are very proactive. The knowledge base is excellent and has many different articles.
