Web hosting is a service provided by a company that has the infrastructure to keep website data and connect it to the internet, making it available for everyone to see it. Each hosting company has its servers that they set up, maintain, and configure.

There are many hosting providers in the world, some you may have heard of, but most of them you have not. SiteGroud is quite a popular provider that has an excellent reputation. You can check out their rating at hostadvice and see for yourself what their strengths and weakness are.

SiteGroud was established in 2004, and ever since then, it has provided hosting services for more than 2 million domains.

Their services include web hosting, WordPress hosting, cloud hosting, WooCommerce hosting, and reseller hosting.

This article will cover their web hosting plans, so let’s take a look at what they offer.

StartUp plan

The StartUp plan is best if you are looking to host only one project or you have one website that you want to migrate from another hosting provider. What is pretty cool is that the data traffic isn’t limited, and you get storage of 10 GB. Free SSL is also provided, alongside free email and free CDN. You get daily backups for all of your data. This hosting solution can handle around 10K visitors per month, so if your site gets more than that, you should look into the GrowBig plan.

If you upgrade to the GrowBig plan, you’ll have access to on-demand backups. Your storage will be  20 GB, and you will get unlimited data traffic. You can also have unlimited websites hosted on this plan without any problem. You also get free SSL, free CDN, and free email. You will have enhanced security to your sites compared to the StartUp plan. Last but not least, this plan can handle around 100K monthly visitors. If your site increases in visitors, you will experience a slower loading time. Hence it is time to move to GoGeek plan.

The last package, or the GoGeek, gives you more space to work with as well as better features. For the unlimited number of websites you can host, you get  40 GB of usable storge and, of course, unlimited traffic. Let’s not forget the free SSL, the daily backups, and the unlimited database. This plan is best suitable for large websites that have around 400K monthly visitors.

Pricing 

SiteGround isn’t the cheapest provider, so you’ll need some budget to host your project with them, especially if you would like to go with the GoGeek plan.

Every plan has a different price due to the features they offer. The prices go from 12 dollars a month to 30 dollars a month, but they also have a lot of discounts, so you will probably pay less, at least for the first months.

Customer support 

Nevertheless, SiteGround is one of the few providers that offer excellent performance and responsive support. The support team is available 24/7, they work aroud the clock to help out with any issues or questions you may have. You can contact them by live chat if the tutorial they provide have not already cleared things up for you.

Conclusion 

SiteGround is an excellent choice when it comes to web hosting. You will be in good hands if you decide to sign up for one of their plans. However, if you are not sure these plans fit your need, take a look around at other providers and then make your decision.
