Siteground is the top webhosting company if you are looking for shared web hosting. Whether you want to host a WordPress site or something else, Siteground should be your number 1 choice.
It ranks in top 3 for all important factors like site speed, site uptime, quality of hosting and support. Siteground now uses 100% SSD storage for faster response. They have also invested in enhanced performance with NGINX, HTTP/2, PHP7 and free CDN.
Like most hosting companies, you get 1-click Install for WordPress and other popular software. You also get Free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate.
The best part is their support. You have access to live chat and you can also create tickets if you don't have time for live chat. Either way, the response is quick. During my 3+ years with Siteground, the average response time for tickets is less than 2 hours. Their service staff is well trained and know their stuff so your issues are resolved quickly.
The only negative about Siteground is the cost. They are more expensive than most other hosting companies for shared hosting. They do offer a discounted first year plan but expect to pay full on renewal. There are no affiliate coupons or other discounts for renewals. So if you go with them, be prepared to pay full price from second year.
Despite the steep price, I prefer Siteground because of the overall quality. I guess you get what you pay for!
