SiteGround is an affiliate, and yes if you choose to host with them I do get a commission, and I thank you, I really appreciate what you have done!

Pro's

  • One of the WordPress recommended hosting sites
  • Great Security (isolated shared hosting)
  • The security experts constantly monitor for WordPress related vulnerabilities and proactively protect our users with custom WAF rules when needed. We also update your WordPress and its plugins automatically, and make daily backups of your hosting account.
  • The hosting platform is built on the latest SSD hardware. Then we add our own caching tool, the SuperCacher, which uses NGINX technology to drastically increase WordPress speed. Last, our servers support PHP7 and HTTP/2, and come with a free CDN to make your website fly!
  • The support team has advanced WordPress expertise and can be reached 24/7. With virtually no wait time on chat and phone and around 10 minutes for the first response in our ticketing system, we consistently achieve nearly 100% customer satisfaction rates.
  • FREE SSL certificate (included in the hosting) , so you get a locked URL, eg https://your site.com
  • Server Locations: Sydney, Singapore, Chicago, Germany, Milan, London and Amsterdam (They will distribute your site content to over 101+ additional networks globally for faster load time to all of your visitors no matter where in the world they are located.)

Cons

  • Start up, you can have only 1 website
  • You have to pay up front for 1, 2 or 3 years to lock in the AUS $4.95 (at the time of writing)
  • There is only a 30 day money back guarantee
  • If you want to cancel your hosting, you have to do it correctly or further charges will be incurred!

Steps

  • The StartUp plan is perfect for people with one website that are starting now
  • The GrowBig plan is a great value for money offer, including the option for multiple websites and the SuperCacher that greatly improves a WordPress and Joomla website speed
  • The GoGeek plan is perfect for people with e-commerce and larger sites, or more geeky development needs like staging and GIT integration
