Why I Chose Siteground To Host My Personal Portfolio
For months I struggled with a slow site hosted with HostGator and I was in need of new hosting. I searched all over the internet and found only one to my likings. Site ground offered solutions to all the problems I was facing with HostGator. After recently switching I can say that I’m actually satisfied with my decision. I rarely run into any problems and when I do Siteground’s support quickly solves it.
A Few Things I like With This Hosting
Siteground has developed their own caching plugin called SuperCacher. It increases the number of hits a site can handle and boosts the website loading speed. The SuperCacher includes 4 different caching options for maximum optimization of your websites. Read more about it here.
Also they give you the option to upgrade PHP versions. Nice little tutorial here.
Siteground offers free SSL vis LetsExcrypt. That means you can then secure your site with HTTPS easily and fast.
SiteGround offers 24-hour phone, chat, and email/ticket support. I’ve contacted them many ways and all have been fast. I never left with a problem not fixed. Best support I have ever encountered.
Siteground offers to move your site to their hosting free of charge. If you’re interested in switching hosts, this will make it as painless as possible.
If you want speed improvements and fast 24/7 support then you should join Siteground as well. If your going to be using WordPress only check out their managed WordPress plan. I love it so far. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Their cheapest plan starts at 3.95/month.
