SiteGround has been great in their responses to any issues I've had. I noticed today that my site was blank, which hasn't happen before at all! After doing a little testing on my own I created a support ticket with SiteGround. Within 15 minutes they were not only working on it but had the issue identified and solved. In this case, a plug-in I had added to my site last year was the problem. An update to the plug-in four days ago prompted me to update it, which I do whenever I see a new one. But there was something in this third-party code causing the issue. I appreciate how quickly SiteGround responded to the issue, identified the problem and fixed it, even though they hadn't caused the problem in the first place.
The only thing I haven't been happy about is the $24 annual charge for domain name protection, which keeps my SiteGround email and phone number private. I don't think this should be an extra charge. I didn't renew this feature last month when my first year of hosting ended, so now I get junk email and about two phone calls daily from random places. It's obviously not a hard thing technically for SiteGround to protect this information, so I wonder why the $24 charge is needed.
I had been through the ringer so to speak with other hosting companies. I was with Hostmonster as a starting hosting company for my web site and was always having down time and spent HOURS chatting with tech teams and such to get my site up and running on a regular basis. With their team you never knew if you were getting someone knowledgeable in the area or not. I'm trying to grow my business and take care of my children at home - I don't have time for that. So after a major outage (for the 3rd time in the year and no refunds were being issued) I had enough and moved on.
From their I went to Arvixe. They were about in the same price range and seemed nice. But with all the trouble going through a site transfer and down time after a promise it wouldn't happen - that was a bad start for me and could see where it was going. So I took a deep breath and thought I'd be stuck going back to Hostmonster. Then I found Site Ground.
Site Ground is more expensive (I use the Cloud service) BUT you get what you pay for. I'm paying TWICE as much, but my site is really up 99% of the time - compared to being down 40-50% of the time. The service to get things repaired are quick - usually within 1 hour, but generally about 15 minutes for me. Many times the tech team already has an issue discovered and is working on it before I contact them! That's something I didn't get from either of the above service providers. Maybe the other guys work for small town sites with hardly any visitors, but I get quite a bit of traffic and run a large site so performance and a good tech team is a MUST. If anyone wants a RELIABLE service, go with SIteGround. I've been with them for about 6 months now and have been nothing but happy with them.
Down time and technical difficulties will happen with anyone - they're computers and that's the downfall, but the less the better. With Siteground you get more service, faster site speed and a great staff to help! I never felt so passionate about writing a review (without being compensated) as I am for this company.
I have been with many different web hosts over the years and I'm voluntarily writing this review because I am really happy with SiteGround. If you have a WordPress or similar site, and are looking for the most features for the lowest price, they are your solution.
I only know their support technicians are great because I have had to contact them on two occasions to fix a problem that I caused.
Why is that significant?
I'm always a little leery when I read about how great a host's tech support is when the customer indicates how quickly the host responded to an outage. Really there shouldn't be an outage in the first place. Second should there be an outage, the customer shouldn't even need to be involved. I don't want to have to contact tech support if that were to happen. It should just simply be fixed.
It seems obvious to me but unfortunately it isn't obvious to many web hosts which is why I'm happy with SiteGround.
I'm using SiteGround to host WordPress sites. They offer all the premium features of the top-end managed sites, but at a fraction of the cost. In the Geek package, you get Varnish caching, Memcache (both of which can be controlled by their own custom plugin) AND Clouflare Railgun support. This combination makes your site blazingly fast.
But what's best is their support. They boast about a 10 minute response time to their tickets, and that's no idle boast. The last four tickets I raised were responded to in an average of 8 minutes, and all of them resolved immediately.
You'll get the most out of SiteGround with a bit of technical knowledge (it's not fully managed, after all), but you don't have to be a genius, and the support is truly second to none.
I've had several web hosts over the years, and I've been satisfied with all of them, and delighted with most - but so far, SiteGround surpasses them all.
SiteGround rocks 95%. I use their grow big plan which uses shared hosting. Service is fast, uptime great, price good. They don't host django on shared servers though. Anyway I think they are serious and effective. I like them but I wish they would host django on shared servers. Cheers SiteGround.
My first impression of SiteGround has been great. My business website has been effortlessly going very well. The support on my hosting is always helpful. I recently had utilized the live chat support. The support person was professional and handled my issue without any problems. I am really enjoying the features on this hosting provider.
Siteground is the best choice for both average users as well as web savy users seeking many options and tools. Besides the norm of things to expect in the cpanel and their integrated customer backend, their support is phenomenal ! While many hosts point to their own tutorials or offer vague directions in their messaging, Siteground goes above and beyond and will take care of it for you with follow ups.
customer service is great..
patiently answered all my stupid questions...
hope it wud be the same in the future ... clearing my doubts at all times..
it seems that siteguard is the best place for wordpress related website as there hosting comes with many features and installations packages for free
Superior support and hosting products provided by SiteGround. I'm a web developer, have used many hosting services over the years, SiteGround is the best choice! The server is stable, fast, excellent features meet most people's requirements. The best of all is the support, no long waiting, fast respond, and the professionals provide valuable technical advise and solutions.
5 Stars Recommend to everyone!
A1 sales service. I chat to get some information about upgrading to another plan and the sale guy helped me by answering all my questions. He took the time to understand my needs and guiding me to figure out what would be the best plan for me. On the other hand, the different kind of plans the offer suit every need.
I am using their servers since more than 2 years and I never experienced downtime longer than 30 seconds (it only happened 2 times).
Svet is an excellent communicator. Very knowledgeable. I'm very satisfied with his assistance. I will recommend SiteGround to everybody. More power to you. I hope to continue my relationship with SiteGround. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. The pricing is also very reasonable. Their technical expertise is awesome.
I manage web sites more then 10 years now, and now I transferred my web sites on GoGeek account.
I had lot of difficulties when I transfered my data. But their support was great and helped me out to sort everything.
You can relay get what you paid , and more with them!
I have been using SiteGround Hosting for over a year now. At the beginning I have quite a few server problems in the first 4 months, since then I have been satisfied with their hosting service and really satisfied with their customer support. They are really quick to respond and quite helpful.
Among the hosting service I've ever used, Siteground are suppliers that I feel most satisfied.
Loading speed of website increased dramatically when I switched to using their hosting.
In terms of features, I just use wordpress should not have evaluated much. I only know of Siteground hosting compatible with all of wordpress plugins that I use.
Another drawback of them that I see that is relatively high price compared with other suppliers.
If you have the ability to pay, you should use the hosting of Siteground.
In 2003, a small group of IT professionals got together to form SiteGround as an alternative to using the hosts that they had encountered as regular customers in the marketplace. SiteGround is a privately-owned company.

The support service is very important for me. And it's fast practical and efficient. The technicians take time to give me the right explanation even if I don't understand right away. They help me solve all the problems I had so far. I'm a beginner and it's my first website. So you can understand how complicated it can be for the technician to explain everything from the beginning. Thanks to them I save stress time and headaches. I must admit that I'm a little pushy for them to help through the process of my issue rather than giving me thousand of articles that I don't understand at all! Some with who I chat try to send me these articles so I find another technician who is more helpful. At the end it's a very helpful service. Without it, I could have never done my website!
The Siteground is above Excellent. They are dedicated in helping their customer as much as possible. A particular experience I would like to share with the Sup[prt Staff is when we were trying to get a specific domain PCI Compliant. They made changed nearly 15 times based on the scan results so as to ensure that the domain got a clean chit. I would recommend Siteground just for their awesome support staff, not to mention their superb uptime.
Consistent, excellent service from all techs at any hour of the day or night. Great uptime, fastest load speeds yet on my WordPress sites. I've used many hosts in the past. Most sold to Bluehost or a bigger company, subsequently sliding into bloat and factory-style customer service. Siteground has managed to both grow AND improve over the past three years across all the metrics you would use in evaluating a webhost. Spend the extra money on Siteground. You'll come out better in the end.
The chap I spoke to was very helpful. He was fast and efficient without being patronising. My problem was fixed effortlessly. I will be recommending site ground to all of my family and friends so they too can experience awesome service. Thank you so much for helping me without being patronising!
I highly recommend Siteground to anyone looking for a host.The service is great, and the customer service amazing! They are super helpful and very quick to help!
I was never deceived by their service, and I am glad I chose them to host my websites. If you are looking for a great host, look no further :)
I have been in marketing communication for 20 years, dealing with many Internet providers and regularly trying new ones. In the vast majority of the cases both the uptime and the customer service were always a problem. Now I just finished moving all my domains with SiteGround. The technical help desk - both with tickets or the chat - is impressive. I don't know how they can have such a large team dedicating so much time to each client. Apart from the team, the Softacoulus set of applications is fantastic and the server in Singapore provides fair speed for Asian users.
The backend could be improved, this is the only flaw, but really a minor. All the rest, close to perfection.
Ive been in the website design and web hosting business for the past 13 years and ive always came across hosting problems with most of the resellers out there in the world all the time but now all my worries have gone!. Thank you so much for the professional approach and helpful experience from siteground in getting me setup with my new online web marketing business im so very happy now thank you so much. Keep up the good work and i will convert all my hundreds of clients to siteground from now on.

I am just very Happy with the live Chat support and not to mention the hosting thats fast. I am a new customer and I was looking for a fast WP host and after trying two other hosting companies, I am very happy with how fast the wp admin panel is. Saves me time so I can focus on my site.
I used for several years many hosting providers ( aruba, xlogic, hostgator, getsyncd etc) but noone can be compared with siteground!
The cost might seems higher then other providers but the hosting plan service, the cutomer service, and the affidability of the service worth all the many I paid it.
SO far I have to say that I do not have any "CONT" but only "PRO"
I never had a so efficient costumer services, They reply in less then 30 minutes ( for me that is a MUST to have, with other providers usually I had to wait at least one working day!)
I raccomend this hosting provider
They are great. The customer service is excellent. I really recommend this site. Everytime i hit the site for help they've always look for the cause of my problem, and they try to help me until they've solve it. For me the service has been an important theme so i stay tuned and still be hiring their services.Thanks Siteground for being so helpful to me.
The SiteGround has a very good customer care team, Gloriya tried her best to support me solving my issue and she gave me guide how to sort it out. She is really very friendly and helpful and make you feel confident and professional as though you are while dealing and solving your issue, I do appreciate her support.
I like the support I received as I was creating my hosting account, uploading my website as well as trouble shooting it. The assistance was prompt and efficient so I was would like to say thank you and keep up the good work. I would recommend Siteground to anyone looking for good hosting.
I have just signed up for Siteground this morning. Because of recent effort from Siteground customer service I have purposely navigated to this site to right a review. Not even one day in and I already know that I made the right decision. I got a personal phone call from Siteground welcoming me to the community and offering any help with my site. They already looked over my site and knew that I had installed wordpress so this was a personal phone call. Unfortunately I have missed this call, however, minutes later I get a personal email that they had called me and again offering me to contact them for any assistance or advice I need.
I have never seen this level of customer service from the many hosting providers I have used in the past. Originally I chose site ground because of all I read on their new datacenter. They use the perfect stack (using nginx) and are one of the very few to offer PHP7 (hhvm option on vps if wanted). The level of caching and features they have litterely can only be matched by other hosting provider plans 5 times the cost.
I can not vouch for uptime just yet however in my opinion customer service is the key factor that makes or breaks a good host/company, and so far they make it.
It is a nice hosting provider company, excellent support and features, but... the price the show are only for new customers, after the first period of time when I wanted to renew my account the want to charge me 2x the price I paid in first time, They said the disccount price it was only for new customer, so... the old ones have to pay 2x. I dont think that is good, that's why Im leaving to another company.
But I can't say any negative thing about them excluding the overprice tag for renewing.
Bought a $1 type special a year ago (Don't recall details but free domain, year's hosting, low price. Great features and service until renewal time where, despite trying to renew only the domain name, the form reset to charge me $186 renewal fees. I tried to stop the payment but there is no 'Confirm' - just straight to 'Complete'. Asked them to sort it out and refund as I'd already discussed domain only renewal via support.
Then I was refunded - and promptly charge $186 again!
Eventually sorted but goodness me.
Siteground is awesome in all respects. No waiting time when you need live chat and quick support. staff are mega friendly, even go out of their way to help solve all my design issues - I'm a newbie so this means a lot. I really can't fault them, great customer service and unbeatable value for money in my opinion. They really do take care of all the minor details to ensure that the customer is fully satisfied.
I came from another hosting company, not going to name any names but it's got blue in their name.
At any rate - this company has had a good reputation but recently, customer service and uptime has been well below satisfactory. And in my search for awesome hosting (for me and my clients) found siteground. Their customer service chat is extremely helpful (Miguel helped me). And the uptime is superb. I recommend siteground to all my clients.
1 word : Efficient
These guys are good at what they do. Quality and prompt action in all my correspondence. I am running multiple websites for my businesses and don't have time to worry about technical issues, PLUS i am not a web dev, Leave it with these guys, they not only resolve all issues promptly, but ALSO ADVICE you on the best solution.
Siteground is great because the support offered is excellent. Within the limits of the service that I have subscribed to they have offered more support than I expected. My transfer from Wordpress was easy and quick. There have been changes I wanted to make and have had help every step of the way. I love that there is a trial month for me to see if this what I need and if it works for me. Something that would have been too difficult for me to do on my own would not have been beneficial to me.
Thank you to all the team, I am enjoying developing my website into something more than it was, while still just a basic word-press user.
I needed help when setting up my newly purchased website and the online support person was able to sort everything out for me very quickly and efficiently. She was also very polite and friendly. I have just started my subscription but so far I have a very positive experience. My site is set up and running within minutes.
Siteground represent the best value for money in the world of Website hosting and email management. I ran a software company for 10 years and we often outsourced much of our requirements to Rackspace, who were good. But for a fraction of the price, Siteground are even better. Every single one of the technical support folks is a genius, and I've got to know them all personally, especially Kostadin; who's fantastic at diagnosing and resolving issues QUICKLY. I often wonder how they make money off of me, when they have invested so heavily in their support. BRILLIANT company.
Very grateful for Site Grounds customer service. If something goes wrong, like your site goes down, they fix it. They are very responsive and they take care of problems very quickly. They share tips and advice. Site Grounds customer service is the best I've seen and I've worked with a few different companies. I would highly recommend Site Ground.
I came to Siteground after a very bad situation with another host that had damaged my trust a bit. Siteground support reps are kind and knowledgable, and I'm glad I finally opened an account with them. While their non-promotional prices may seem higher than most, remember that with hosting, you get what you pay for, and they run some great promotions quite often. Their Cloud accounts come with a number of amazing upgrades that would cost hundreds extra with another sub-par host, so it's worth the extra cost.
The main thing about Siteground in Speed and support. I have never seen support as good anywhere ive been on plenty of hosts and none are as good as Siteground. The speed is fantastic my website is fairly heavy on the resources and it loads up fast with Siteground they have inbuilt CDNS which are handy.
I've received consistent, fast, and high quality responses to all of my tech support requests. Even when I have little idea of what I'm talkin about, they always seem to know - and their answers have always worked! I've asked for help at 11 pm on Christmas Day and 3 am on a Saturday night and they're always there, always prompt, and always cheerful. I don't know what they feed their staff but it's a great formula.
I am a reseller for more that 8 years but I use Siteground only the last year.
Honestly so far is the best company I have ever copperated with.
The previous were Hostgator and EZPZ
First of all their support department is excelent and replies extremely fast.
Their hosting plans are very good (fast and safe).
A con is that Siteground is a little bit more expensive than the competiotion BUT it is a value for money for sure.
Finally, in my case, Siteground refunded me for the last 3 months of my vps hosting plan (about 300 euros back) HOWEVER that it could tell me that it was not permitted as the TOS were saying that I dont have the right for refund. But they decided to refund me!!!
I had horrible experience with my previous host provider, endless ping-pong and finger pointing without any resolution. Finally decided to just leave and switch to a provider that I may trust and rely upon a good support. I actually never heard SiteGround name before, until one host-search adviser mentioned it via chat after hearing my story. I was skeptical, like: ok let me see...Reviews were 100% positive, datacenter close to my location, cost reasonable (was 60% discount), so I gave it a try. Site switch was an eye-blink, I did not even move my finger - guys transferred everything for me and reconfigured accordingly. After DNS switch my DB needed reload again to pick up the latest changes from old provider - I gave them zip, they loaded in no time. Error message appeared after the switch, was fixed within minutes, I typed the steps instructions longer than it took them to fix it. I am SO IMPRESSED with support, and a seconds-interval time to get a response from a real person. I love that they always have a picture of support person you deal with, and names you can actually pronounce, feels like you know them for a long time and trust them ! I am happy I switched, and would definitely recommend SG to everyone.
It pains me to write this review, as I used to LOVE Siteground. I had used many other hosts and been nothing but disappointed. Then I got Siteground and it was GREAT. However, as my business grew I moved from shared hosting to Cloud hosting, and ever since I started spending more money with them it's been awful. My sites are slower, they gave me an IP address that was on email blacklists so all my clients couldn't send emails to ATT emails, the IP was also on some DDoS list because my sites started getting hit with DDoS multiple times a day. They refused to give me a new IP address until I had to send a tweet to the CEO at which point they finally changed it. There are still many instances where it takes 10+ seconds to load a page and when I talk to support they just tell me that "Time to First Byte" doesn't matter. I've even captured the 10+ second load time on video and sent it to them and they still contend that nothing is wrong with their servers.
For shared hosting, Siteground is great. Never upgrade to their Cloud plans though.
Actually no problem has been arisen so far, and whenever any little bit hassle occurred, it has been solved immediately. That's awesome. Their support team is so excellent and knowledgeable that, I do not need to rush to developer every time. For up time, it is excellent and not a single incident I faced so far for my site being down.
I've been with siteground for about 10 years now and in that time they have been excellent every year. Their packages are great value for what you get and I've always had first rate customer service from them. I've ended up recommending them to lots of friends and clients, which isn't something I normally do.
If you're looking for a host for your domain I honestly don't think you can go wrong with them.
Best Service, responsiveness to problems chatting. For me is the best. I do not speak English very well but they always solve problems with patience. The website responds very quickly. It starts from a basic package that can be implemented later.Perhaps there is some host less expensive , but I think in this case is money very well spent.I have recommended this Host also to friends and they too had the same performance .My site is very young and I'm waiting for you to index , which is why I chose a host you think fast , to google is a boon
I've been online on chat for the whole day. Starting morning my client's website had problems and SiteGrounds technical help was really fast. Operator from live chat submitted a ticket for me, and then in exactly 15 minutes i received a solution. Then I needed something else (block IPs, set up .htaccess files) and Technical staff did it for me. Then I needed security check - and they did it for me. Well I can't say how thankful I am. I've been using siteground for almost a year now, and I love it. I found it on the internet and everyone had positive feedbacks. And that's 100% true. The servers are fast, staff is friendly and really helpful.
Now, in the evening I decided to start my hosting plan, and operator Ivan spent I guess 40 minutes explaining each detail, answering my dumbest questions, he even did all registration for me, sent me a link where I entered only my personal data. WOW! They really take care of you - if everyone was so nice to me I would forget even to walk and have others to do everything for me. That's a joke. But the point is their service is incredibly best I've ever experienced!
I've only had a few dealings with Siteground's support team. Mainly because they're so good that I rarely have any problems that require me to contact them. Each time I've dealt with them however, its been very quick, and they answer my question(s)/take care of the issue with lightning speed. I wish that all the other companies I deal with put the same level of attention and care to their support services as Siteground does. I would have to say that the value for your dollars spent with Siteground are spent wisely and well. Can't go wrong with them.
So far, I'm loving SiteGround. I switched from HostGator (which I didn't have any problems with, but Jon Morrow suggested the switch). So far, everything has been quick and very easy! Customer service is amazing - I logged into the live chat about accessing CPanel today, and the chat showed 24 people before me in the queue, so I got ready to switch to another window and get some work done while I was waiting but the chat box opened with someone right away!
Another thing I love is the ease of accessing the CPanel. Previously, I've had to have a separate login and password, and I could never remember how to access the CPanel (I'm a novice, and don't do too much with moving my sites around or changing things). With SiteGround, there's a button to click in my account area which takes me right to my CPanel. I love the simplicity!
The customer care and support is amazing and unbelievably good! The support team was prompt in advising and acting. It was very easy to use though I am yet to try a lot of other features. After thorough research I have opted for this and it has proved to be a right choice. I would recommend Siteground without any hesitation. Especially for someone who is internet illiterate in terms of doing things like website making, this is a boon since everything can be done by ourselves without hjaving to possess technical things. I really thank you very very much Siteground!
Yes, yes, yes! These guys are the best! I hardly ever write reviews about companies as most are average at best, but Siteground have the best support and the hosting is much faster than the competitors! I was with bluehost previously and it was so slooooooow. There is no comparison.
The support is there for you most of the time and live chat will have any issue you may have sorted in a few minutes.
I move to Siteground for about 6 days ago thinking that will be the best for my websites. I host to website with them. Since then non of my website are working, cannot log into word press to update information and every time I talk with support in the chat they said that the problem is fix that after the propagation the website will be OK. I been patience waiting for 6 days but this is way to much since after all that time every thing still is the same. Its seem that they don't know whst is wrong with my website and they are just trying to help without having for sure what is the problem with them. I won't definitely recommend Siteground.
I was attracted to SiteGround after reading loads of reviews and seeing their pricing structure was far more affordable than my present host. When I first signed up I was not disappointed. The rave reviews are warranted. Super impressive. But having years of exposure to different hosts I wanted to test the environment for a good two months before making the big jump away from my present host (who I love, but are really expensive). It's been 6 weeks now, and still, I'm super impressed with the service from SiteGround. I haven't had one bad incident. I've been tracking the sites and no downtime, no blacklists ( unlike Go Daddy I am also testing). I've about 20 site migrations to get through and the live chat option is fabulous when you just have a niggling/not sure question you need to ask in a hurry before you can move on with stuff. They always answer in a jiffy, even complicated questions you'd probably wait a few hours to receive a reply on with other top hosts. Suitably impressed! I truly do not know how they do it. If you're thinking about using them I'd suggest you give it a whirl. The client interface takes a bit of getting used to but if you're familiar with cPanel environment the learning curve is minimal.
Siteground ROCKS!!! I have GoDaaddy now since 1997 and have nearly 20 domains with them. GD charges you for every step you take with your accounts. When you try to get help, well there's a waiting line for like 25 minutes at just about any time day or night. They also force you to buy products or hide them within other purchases. Siteground, on the other hand, KILLS EM! CS is awesome, with virtually no wait time, and super friendly and knowledgeable tech support.I have switched 4 of my domains already to Siteground and plan to do the rest. So great job Siteground!
I love siteground. It provides a good panel to access services and features are pretty good too. However, I wish if Siteground changes their UI. Apart that it provides good uptime and affordable plans. Thumbs up. Works well and customer support is well good. It is a cool looking website and works well.I shifted to Siteground recently from a free host recently. The major reason for me to shift to the paid host was that drupal requires huge resources. The file manager that is provided them has a view similar to that of the linux. The interface again is not upto the mark and I had a tough time transferring files from one location to the other.
Siteground totally rocks. After reading tons of reviews online I bought hosting from Bluehost which is okay. I was looking for something better at a lower price point. I needed a vps level hosting with a price of a shared hosting. I know, I am cheap. But it is possible. I handled web dev for my office with a VPS of some big hosting companies. And We arent happy with it. But When we gave siteground a shot with a killer discount deal wegot (60%) We were totally blewn away by what they had to offer. Its freakin Good ! Support team is so good, their basic support is much better than the premium or priority support of top hosting providers.
I highly recommend siteground to anyone who wants a 100% uptime. Thanks Siteground, for being super awesome !
They are ready to assist the customers in few seconds. less waiting time for getting help. your are great and professional people. the features for site ground is awesome. I own many websites in siteground.com and I want to encourage my friends and colleague to invest in this professional and expert web hosting company in the world. still we expect some improvements for some parts, from a customer point of view, the Email accounts needs to be having more space, this will help companies to don't go for third party Email hosting servers. the joomla templates are nice in siteground, Thank you all sitegrouders who mad life easy for us!
Okay DEEP BREATH...This is why siteground sucks for me right now. Signed up on 25th Oct 2015. Free site transfer could not be completed because previous hosting account storage maxed out. Not their fault but nowhere does it say under what circumstances they can not fulfill site transfer, believe me this is one! I have three sites under cpanel they could only tranfer one. This was completed in a timely fashion but then two days after all i get is a loop direct error when trying to navigate to website www.trevorleacock.com. At present i cannot access cpanel or wordpress admin. Customer service is my bag, but so far in every instance i have dealt with a different person so there is NO ownership whatsoever of my problem so nobody is invested in a solution. The default selection for service is 5 stars which is not appropriate. At least the previous hosting company physically tried to involve themselves in resolving the issue. Sitegrounds and i quote 'Seniors' as they are called just seem to be faq's trigger happy. To say that my situation has gone from bad to worst is an understatement.
It usually rocks, but today it sucks.
Server down more than a couple of hours. That is very, very bad, guys!! I didn't even receive a notification, just saw it as I went on my website, then went into cPanel and saw in the support area that there is a technical issue.
When contacting support in the live chat, the customer service rep was very friendly, unfortunately not very familiar with the issue and how to help me, but saying we will do our best to fix it.
I know you'll do your best. However it would be a better service if you inform your customers that their server is down and then give them realistic time feedback on when the server is up again.
Not "in less than 20 minutes" and this was 2 hours ago....!!
As a Wordpress addict I love Siteground, it has cPanel and dedicated Support, all you need in one place. plus a lot of extras like SG Cache a special plugin that makes all the caching stuff hassle free.
I moved to Siteground.com after trying out 3 other web hosts all of which advertised very well to the point that i trusted them with my business.
From the very start they appeared to be a reliable and knowledgeable hosting company, quick in response to their support questions. But once they had my cash ( I paid a year up front ) things went down hill very very fast.
It got to the point that they advised me to upgrade to their cloud service, which again i paid for up front inc a static ip address. Once upgrade the service went from bad to unbelievably bad, I complained that the service was not what I expected, they then advised me to downgrade to my original plan, by the time I had done this I had spent over $300 for nothing!
Today I had issue getting to their custom cPanel as I was for some reason being re-directed to my old webhosting cPanel set up....don't ask me why, Siteground.com never told my why this happened or how?? Anyway once this issue was fixed they then suspended my website for going over a certain limit....again I couldn't view these stats as my cPanel area was not functioning as it should.
I have been in chat with them today asking why, what, how questions only for them to give canned responses. They have had a large amount of money from me, for a service thats beyond a joke. I am now in the process of moving to inmotion.com that will hopefully be the last move I do for a few years to come!!
Siteground.com steer well clear of them!!
As a neophyte with Joomla, I have been gutsy (or crazy?) enough to jump in with a live site and begin learning how it works.
The support from Siteground has been excellent. I work til I get stuck, then ask a question (after reading FAQ info, Googling the question, etc). Generally the questions are answered promptly.
The last answer came in about 10 minutes if I recollect correctly. Without mentioning a name, I attempted the same with another host prior to
to discovering Siteground and the results were very poor in the areas of server speed, keeping Joomla updated and general support. 5 Stars all
around to Siteground. * * * * * :)
I started using Siteground last May and was happy with the service (esp. the speed) until today, when I noticed my website was not coming up at all. The chat session led to a support ticket and I was told I would be contacted in about 15 minutes. Several hours later, after NOT receiving an email, I went to the ticket page and saw a response that I didn't like at all. The tech said he had looked at the log and found nothing wrong, and since I hand code my site, it was my problem. Ticket closed. In other words, tech support only helps if you have a template site, and apparently one that you have not tweaked with any hand coding. (It was a bit weird that he assumed a man had coded my site and I needed to get in touch with him). I was very surprised this person did not try harder to get to the bottom of the problem, especially since I told the chat lady that I had not touched the code in two weeks, since I was on vacation, and that my site was functioning yesterday. Not only that, the site had been fine for the past nine years. A worthwhile tech support person would have had the tenacity to delve deeper instead of giving up at the outset and throwing the whole problem in my lap. While waiting on chat, I had done a quick check via Filezilla, to see if my files were still on their server, and yes they were. Upon being told it was my problem, I went back to Filezilla with the idea of reloading the index page, and noticed that my index page on siteground's server had zero data on it. Why? I do not know and probably never will. Something wiped it out, and you'd think they would want to now what, But apparently they don't care. Luckily, I was able to reload the index page with data stored on my computer and the site re-appeared immediately. If I had read a review like this before choosing Siteground, I would have steered clear.,
I do not know what to say except that it is very good . They have few good like a set of tutorials about website, hostings, content management sysytems and so on. It fully everything that I need . I find this very useful program. Good host for small business sites, like mine. I'm very enthousiastic about Siteground. They have a great knowledge base, an excellent support of joomla and mediawiki and the helpdesk is simply fantastic! My support questions are always handled in no-time and more than satisfactory. I use joomla and siteground is setup well for that. Thank you. Like.
Probably best Bulgarian team after World Cup 94. Awesome support, awesome speed, awesome options and features.
I was talking with Ivan (customer support) before I started to work with siteground. I was using Godaddy VPS but he offered me SiteGround's GoGeek package. I thought it should be worse than a VPS service and I needed a cheaper hosting than Godaddy VPS because unfortunately I lost almost 70% adsense income because of the poor service of Godaddy. And I agreed to purchase GoGeek package. Customer support was awesome on presale and I thought it's because of I am a potential buyer. :D
Today they have done my website transfer. I had several problems with my site which has happened by my fault (some are related with site transfer). When I open a ticket, I got answers in 5 minutes and they resolved my problems in seconds. I connected to Live Chat support more than 20 hours in 24 hours (after my purchase) and they answered my questions perfectly, friendly and KINDLY.I am glad that I failed on my thoughts. The website performance is much better than Godaddy's VPS and customer support was awesome. I can give you nothing but 5 stars for now.
Please don't change champions.
Once again I sent in a support ticket to SiteGround and within 10 minutes I got a response and the problem was taken care of. SiteGround's 25/7 support, both by ticket and chat is absolutely fantastic. I've been online since the mid-seventies (300 baud modem and acoustic coupler) and after all these years I think that SiteGround has the best support of any online company I've ever dealt with.
In addition to the support I get from SiteGround, the hosting service is fantastic. As far as I can tell none of my sites has ever been done because of any problems on their end.
I find their wide variety of plans and prices perfect for the variable needs of my sites. And, if need be, they make upgrading and downgrading extremely simple to do.
I've used many hosting services over the years, and none of them even comes close to SiteGround's world-class operation. I can't recommend them highly enough.
Siteground support is good when you can keep the connection, 50% of my chat connections are disconnected in middle(no it is not my wifi problem except for one time). Support people are very helpful, but features are not that great, I expected more from Siteground and I honestly am disappointed. Cloudflare issues took down my server for 2 hours now and there is no clear ETA, support says it is 3rd party issue, for a customer of Siteground, all that matters is uptime. It does not inspired confidence! I switched to cloud and now site is down, as a startup even a single user coming to signup can make huge difference to us.
Siteground, I have been a customer since 2004 . I have had some small issues but all in all an excellent hosting company. The tech support is excellent and the turn around on tickets lightning fast. They fully support open source applications and the softaculous console is simple to use. If your looking for a quality host and top notch customer service switch to SiteGround. i have not been dissapointed..They are far from the cheapest for VPS but excellent service and and uptime. Friendly staff I would highly recommend this host. Mike from http://www.gettinghits.com - http://www.pawmax.com - http://www.androidtheater.com
I always had a good experience working with with Siteground support. They have very well informed and competent support personnel.
I had signed up for the go geek plan. I needed to order a ssl certificate. When I contacted the support by chat the Dimitar was honest to let me know that I rights to a free sll certificate for a year. He was kind enough to order and attach it to the domain I had specified.
Few motnhs ago I designed my first Wordpress project "acmarketer.com" and I decided to use Siteground as a web hosting. I had a great support and I was also surprised they transferred my website from my altervista space to the new one quickly and for free!
1 month ago I redeveloped the website for the company where I work and I decided to transfer it into Siteground servers because I was sure of the great service they offer. I cannot say anything negative about Siteground, they are very fast, professional, competent and they explain very well every issue.
Now I always recommend it!
The websites are easy to set up. It is good for a beginner like myself. I've had no problems until now with the service. I had trouble logging into an existing domain and had trouble creating a new one. When I did have a problem, I jumped onto the live chat and the support member was very quick, very polite and very helpful in solving my issue. She explained that siteground was experiencing technical issues and provided me with an alternative method which worked for me. The live chat option made it easy for me because I am in Australia. Now I can quickly get on with my work.
SiteGround's customer service is quick, responsive, and awesome. I use their chat sessions a lot. Their names are associated with their pictures. It's quick and service is always friendly and very knowledgeable. They don't leave you hanging without a solution. SiteGround has a lot of features I need and the features I thought I didn't need, I end up using. I've been recommending them to friends and clients, and they're happy, too. Again, I can't rave about their service enough because their responses doesn't seem like canned responses and they're very polite. I highly recommend SiteGround for Managed Wordpress Hosting.
I was with 1&1 for several years before moving to siteground so I know what really bad hosting is like. Anyway siteground is excellent by comparison. The support is first class I mean really fast answers - you can email, open a ticket or live chat and i can't fault it. The control panel is intuitive and very simple to use, they have all the usual auto installers etc.
My only issue is that I get lots of 500 and 503 errors. This week has been bad. There's a message on my account to say the server is upgrading to a SSD drive and that will happen on saturday. but I've have errors all day and currenly none of my sites load. So I opened a ticket and posted a bunch of screenshots of error pages. And I'm told the ugrade will be complete in 5 days. This is no good to me as I'm trying to launch 3 business websites. And I host sites or other people on siteground.
So if you're considering siteground - in my experience they are way better than the experience I had with 1&1 but it's not 5 stars all the way you can still expect some difficulties. I'm guessing most of the reviewers here have limited experience and are just impressed that they get to speak to someone so quickly - but ask yourself what does it mean if you need to be contacting people about your server?
Site ground is the absolute best! Their support system is something I've NEVER experienced before in the 12 years I have been developing websites. I was just having some issues installing an old wp website from another server and the rep offered to take over for me right on the spot and finished the job. They always answer very quickly with very low waiting time for the live chat, and when they escalate your ticket to a more experienced rep, they always get the job done very quickly... Absolutely amazing support and the speed of servers I love it... Very happy with them!
These guys are FREAKING amazing. They were super quick to answer all of my PRE sale questions. I contacted them multiple times just to make sure of what they offered - I have over 40 domains, so you have to make sure of things before moving that many. Once I ordered their services, they bent over backwards to make sure everything was in place and taken care of. I should've switched LONG ago. My previous hosting company took forever to respond to tech support question. I highly recommend them and will in all of the Wordpress forums I belong to. Thanks, Siteground!!
Siteground present themselves well with a site and services which are difficult to resist, particularly if you are hosting Wordpress sites. Unfortunately the reality is somewhat different. I selected a cloud hosting plan to host my numerous Wordpress sites for my business and our clients.
- The service had an advertised setup time of 1 hour. 2 hours later, and after chasing support (who were excellent), I received login details.
- The account control panel had info fields for my server location and IP but these were blank so I chased support (again, they were great) and was told my IP, but not server location.
- Account opening emails informed me that my servers WHM and cPanel logins were the same as my Siteground login. I logged into Siteground fine, but the same credenditals did not work for WHM and cPanel.
- After chasing this with support (yup, still excellent) I was told there had been an error in setting up my server which meant the account had not been created.
- So around 1 day after placing my order the server was finally online and accessible.
- I logged on to WHM to initiate transfers (which are no trouble with my current virtual dedicated hosting) only to find the option is not available. Siteground support told me this feature is not available on virtual dedicated accounts and I should pay $30+ per cPanel I wanted to transfer (of around 25).
- I requested to cancel the account and for a refund due to this basic feature lacking and the trouble i'd already been through. Initially support refused the refund. After a bit of a fight I got it.
I also work for a few clients who use Siteground with hosting, one of whom runs a site with tens of thousands of visits a month. That site has been throwing 500 and 522 errors periodically for two months now due to Siteground not providing the advertised resources to his server. He has contacted them twice to have it resolved, and support (always friendly and eager to please to a fault) tell him it's resolved. Of course it's not resolved. The site is still under resourced and costing him money and SEO ranking.
Their support structure might be amazing, but I think i'd prefer to go back to the old fashioned arrangement of rubbish support which I only have to rarely use. Rather than great support I have to use to fix every other thing their automated systems are suppose to do.
Finding a hosting company is very difficult. It is not just doing a quick search and going to the review sites and just picking what the reviewer picks. You have to realize that they may be into giving a company a high reviews because they are being paid by the company by either an affiliate program or some other means. I am a computer analyst so I dug into the source code on a few review sites to find out some of them were doing this. The other thing we need to do is find out if they belong to EIG (The Endurance International Group ) you can read into this yourself. From there you have to read the TOS (Terms of Service) to make sure your site will pass and not abuse any of their Terms. Anyways after about 8 hours of digging I have chosen only one hosting site that meets my needs. The winner is Siteground. Thank you for the added help in the chat
Why would you choose anyone else to host your site - these guys are super responsive and have helped us out so many times - their support team/tech team are awesome and are very responsive to all support tickets at anytime day or night anywhere in the world. Our business is in Los Angeles and we have never had a slow response from the support at siteground.
Make sure that you add some of their premium services - especially their Back up plan - we went go-geek which is so worth it and they also handle our SSL certificates - everything you need - Siteground our part of our team in business.
My tech that helped me get help on the live chat is going to use Siteground from now on.
He was very impressed with the response time and the help we got! Tanya was super helpful providing information on multiple features and what they would mean to us. She was patient as i struggled to provide the information in a way that was understandable I was really impressed with the servic i have used many web host and have never had this sort of service and support. I am very thankful that she was easily able to address all my needs in a sigle sitting.
The simplicity of this site is truly amazing. When they say they will transfer your site from WordPress all by themselves and that they will do it it under 24 hours, they were not kidding. They will do everything for you and all you have to do is sit back and let the magic happen!
I used bluehost and i had nothing but problems, SiteGround helps you through every problem possible and in a hurry too. They answer your questions within seconds on live chat, not like bluehost where i could site there and wait up to 20 minutes before i could finally get helped.
Another thing i loved was the price. This price can NOT be beat! Its beyond responsible and with the serve you get as well you can't pass it up. Also i have never seen my site run faster then this. My site has never once gone down and i never had a problem with loading
Overall, i would highly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a good solid hosting service. Also i would suggest you come here before you go to bluehost. You will waste your money and time there
Our site must be up and responsive 24/7 to ensure efficient business flow and customer support.From time to time, we move a bit hastily and have found ourselves in a jam. Critical errors which cause shivers to run through our team. Happily it is seldom but when it happens, we grind to a halt. We give ourselves 10-15 minutes to see if we can fix and if not it is Siteground tech support to the rescue. They are immediately there, no matter the hour. Timely, responsive, thorough and caring (an often overlooked trait in tech.) Hats off to the Siteground support for being there when we need them the most.
I signed up for SiteGround about 3 months ago, paid a year in full. I ended up deciding after the 3rd month that I would not be finishing my web project and needed to cancel hosting and get the remaining months refunded. Apparently SiteGround does not know how to pro-rate for unused months and said they do not offer refunds after 30 days. I can understand if someone is paying monthly and you are letting them test out the hosting service for a month to see if its what they are looking for and then you refund them the 30 days if they are not happy with the service, but to not refund someone that paid for a year the remaining amount of unused time is pretty crappy for a hosting provider. Now my account is canceled and they have money that should not be due them. I will not be recommending their hosting service to any clients or coworkers in the future as I do not agree with their refunding policy. I have used other hosting providers in the past that did not have such a terrible policy.
I recently switched my hosting to Siteground. Before that, I had been a customer with GoDaddy since 2011.
I became interested in Siteground after I became disappointed with the performance of GoDaddy's hosting. In order to update my PHP server on GoDaddy, I would have had to change my website to a personal server that would cost no less than $35/month - and that was for the lowest performance, without without the PHP update that I needed.
When I was looking for options, my website developer and graphic designer suggested that I look at Siteground. She told me how Siteground is a server dedicated to handling Wordpress sites (awesome!) and they would be able to handle my site and all of its needs. When I first checked Siteground's site, I was FLOORED! The prices were not what I expected at all! They were so much less than the competition AND they gave me so much more for my money. I was instantly sold and immediately changed my hosting to Siteground. That's not where the buck stopped, though.
I am not a website-savy person. I have needed quite extensive help setting up my website, and I have never truly messed around with a Cpanel. I expressed my concerns to Siteground -(I didn't want to mess anything up - and they transferred my hosting for me - free of charge! Also, when I had issues transferring the hosting for my e-mail, they happily handled that, too.
Recently, I decided to purchase a few domains. Although there are other website that offer domains at a less expensive price, there was no doubt in my mind that I would be using Siteground. Their customer service is subpar to absolutely no one. They even handled setting up a domain redirect for me (again, I didn't want to mess it up).
I'm sold on Siteground. I'm certain that we will have a partnership that will flourish for a long time.
The customer support i continue to receive from Siteground is outstanding. In the most recent interaction the agent actually logged into my wordpress to ensure that the issue had been resolved. He was patient and kind and focused on providing me with the very best customer service. The technical agents continue to go above and beyond to help an online rookie like me. I host a number of sites through Siteground and have found the experience to be better than hosting sites I have used in the past. I will continue to tell people about Siteground because the prices are comparable but the service is unmatched.
The Siteground support looks great for what i had to ask them but as a hosting provider they don't support all domain extensions like .web or country extensions like .al, as well the domain transfer is not free and it cost way to much about 12 Euros per domain. So in my case that i have 30 domain to transfer it is way to much paying 360 euros only for transferring the domains. So in my case will be better staying where i'm and getting a better package which will cost about $300 for a year. So thnx, will stay with 1and1 till i will find a way to transfer my domain in a better hosting provider.
Somebody actually answers the lice chat, and the problem got sorted.
The Tutorials are accurate and relevant, It's the first time I have used Wordpress, and it rocks, the tutorials step you through from the "no idea" to the "I have a website" phase in no time at all.
The cost is significantly lower for a start up ke me, I am saving about 75% on my previous Market leader web hosting package.
Expanding is simple, from hosting capacities to add-ins, I don't have to worry if I get carried away and generate a huge website.
I can add features to suit me, not to match a pre-established bundle.
Once again, I just confirmed how good the service is at Siteground. I needed to transfer a domain that I had just purchased and through the Siteground LivChat support service I was able to get it done instantly.
I have been with Siteground for many years and each time I have had a problem with one of my websites, they have solved it for me within a very short time. Of course, the price for hosting is terrific value and the continuity of access is amazing as well - but it is the service that really sets Siteground apart as exceptional.
What can I say, Denitsa is a rockstar!
In fact, all of the guys over at Siteground are rockstars. I have been with Siteground for over 6 months now. I am not tech savvy so many of the complexities of running websites apart from hosting (such as transfers, backups, various installations etc etc...) are just that...complexities. And spending endless hours of valuable time trying to research & learn it all doesn't necessarily always give you all the answers. Every time I ask I ask the guys at Siteground though, they are incredibly helpful, ready with the answers and help on how to get it done (if they don't already do it for me for free!). Nothing is ever too much trouble for them,
I am continually amazed at what my hosting at Siteground offers for free. You really get your money's worth. And that's not including their best in class customer service.
I've dealt with many international companies but these guys are head and shoulders above the rest!
Just started with Siteground 3 months ago to replace bad existing hosting service. I think I've had a good choice for now. These are the following reasons:
1. Live chat supporters in Siteground are quick to reply ( pre-sale and technical too ) , much better than old hosting ( only ticket and take more than 12 hours to reply )
2. THE SPEED!! . My Joomla site is pretty heavy, when it was in old host, only have 50/100 tested with google insight speed. Move to Siteground Growbig hosting plan, the speed is up to 85/100 . That's awesome because I tried to optimize a lot on the old host but so result at all.
Siteground has one of the best Support Staff I have ever come across. I am specifically speaking about their magento service here as I am using it and loved it. I have faced numerous issues while setting up my magento website and they have been helpful throughout. They answer tickets within 30 minutes for sure. The best part is that they do not charge more for the specialized support which I am sure I would have to spend extra cash if I went elsewhere. Their Chat support is also great, where they are able to resolve my smaller issues quickly. For someone who is new to hosting, Siteground is a great solution as they handle certain aspects like caching which can be a headache. They have one click solutions for all these add ons.
The Support that I received today was nothing short of superb. The guy who helped me went way beyond what I expected of support from anyone - he not only told me how to install Wordpress on my new site he personally set it up and installed. He then explained what cpanel was to me and why it was useful. In these days of customer service being the bare minimum that companies can get away with performed by sullen youths that I always feel sound as if they would rather be doing anything other than assisting me - the siteground staff set a target higher than any company that I know
Site down 3 times in 4 months. The crew expressed no sympathy over the fact we may have lost our grant opportunity since the grant foundation needed to review our application - who cares if a small non-profit like us get the grant we worked 100's of ours for? Certainly not Siteground. Not once did they apologize over the fact we also had to reschedule our organizers' meeting over the fact that none of us could read important information that was on our website. Again, I can't believe they don't train their crew to at least be sensitive to matters AND that our website had 3 major downtime in 4 months. Not to mention several email issues.
I was happy with your services until... I tried to upgrade.
There is no clarity that if you are going to upgrade, you will not get a free domain.
I had a "start-up" plan and wanted to get another domain name so I went to "add services" and searched for a domain name. When I got one and then it took me to "order domain names" where it states the price of $14.95.
But there is a offer for "Register any Regular Domain with Hosting for FREE" So I clicked on that thinking I will get another domain for upgrading to "grow big".
Then it takes you to the three plans where in "grow big" it says unlimited domains. So it implies that you can get another free domain with this upgrade.
When I mentioned this to the billing and chat support, they did not understand how I could think another domain was free.
They just argued with me saying that "customers do not think they will get another free domain by upgrading" when I am telling them I just did. And I am a customer!
I am an unsatisfied customer because the "support team" spend more time defending the misleading website and argued that I was wrong to think what I thought instead of understanding the problem.
I've used many hosting providers in the past, but SiteGround really stands out. They offer great features, but the best part is the customer service. I'm fairly technical so when I contact support, it's typically a pretty tough question. I've yet to stump them, and they fix any issues quickly. I run a few Wordpress sites through SiteGround and they even provide support for issues with the Wordpress installation (they even found a support article on Wordpress's site for me one time!). I like their speed optimization options, it's made my websites much faster! Their support is suburb, the server speed is good, and they have a lot of great features.
Siteground told me that they would provide full support in migrating my email hosting from Only Domains to their servers. I was making the switch because Only Domains email hosting kept directing my emails into clients' spam and junk folders.
Siteground told me that their technicians would migrate the email service for me, and that it would all be done in 12 hours. That was Monday and it's Friday now, and after a coupe of days of my website going down, it's still not back to its original url.
Because they asked me to rename the name servers (myself, not done by them as the sales / customer service people promised) there was a litany of problems. With the help of squarespace, I was able to delete / add / edit CNAME and A type entries into my cpanel at siteground so it's nearly back to working properly.
Siteground technicians aren't available on live chat, only sales people and customer service - who are polite and helpful as they can be, and their replies take literally hours. When they do reply, the problem still remains unresolved.
I hate complaining and have been as polite as possible, but I'm at the point now where I'm going to cancel my order and go with squarespace instead. Squarespace support has always been fantastic; their live chat is with technically informed people with a lot of time for you.
It's ok for people who have more experience. If you don't the support isn't all that great. Not for beginners. The features are pretty good. i just had a hard time getting my site up and plus it shut down without notice. i had no idea about share hosting like I said i am a beginner and no one was listening to the little person trying so hard to make her way. I don't like rudeness either. Some may be use to it, but when it comes to my efforts and money I rather have a person that it happy to work with me. Site ground need to be more informative for the little people as well, but this will not stop me. Moving forward.
Extremely fast support service. Actually I was use to my previous hosting company where I would submit a support ticket and would have to wait for a day. I submitted my ticket then went off and did other things on the internet then about a minute later I got an email with the answer to my question. WOW! love Siteground.
I recently moved from another hosting company to Siteground and it looks like I will stay with them for sometime. They are amazing and they help me build my web business. Thank you Siteground for your amazing hosting service. I know you will continue to shine above the rest.
I've been with them for 5 days now, they helped transfer my site and it all went quite smoothly. Customer and technical support is probably the best in the industry but despite being significantly more expensive than other host providers and including many useful features- fast loading sites, great uptime, supercaching and more, the shared plans come with severe usage limitations- CPU seconds, executions etc. and even the GoGeek plan allows you a maximum of 800k cpu seconds in a calendar month (50% cheaper growbig is 600k max) and if you will be performing database heavy tasks like on ecommerce sites, forget about it, your site will be taken down immediately with a 503 message but the technical support will help you sort it out too. I have the supercaching enabled, no unnecessary plugins and using W3 Total cache with the right settings and on a traffic of 1100-1200 unique visits per day on my product review sites, it is using up 16,000 CPU seconds in a day = 480k in a month and it will not even handle 2000 unique visitors per day so I'm not sure how they can say that package is suitable for 100k visitors and more? (Yes I know it varies between type of sites and other variables). I moved from Hostgator because they had very bad technical support but there were no such limitations there on packages that cost less than half : You are allowed roughly 7-8k visitors per day and a maximum of 25% CPU usage limit for 90 seconds and they often don't care- this limit is 20% CPU for not more than 10 seconds with SiteGround so no slow queries or database heavy tasks are allowed- even though I explained everything in detail, sales person was 100% certain that GoGeek would be adequate for my sites' needs. How?? What will happen in busy Amazon shopping periods? No way 800k CPU secs will be in enough in November December and sites will be down and I lose hundreds of dollars because I miss out on sales.. Then they ask you to upgrade to Cloud package which is significantly more expensive.. My point is there are other hosts in the market with no such limitations and that allow you way higher CPU usage. I think it is beyond ridiculous and they need to do something about it immediately- because many people sign up not knowing this as they do not tell you during sales. First year discounted prices are already expensive and second year you'll pay twice as much and after the initial 30 day money back refund period you have to stay with them and bear the consequences- there is no pro-rated refund for unused time. And no I am not a happy customer and looking for a way out, despite amazing customer support and good quality product- great but not at how much they charge you!
Siteground made my evening! I am a busy professional with a hobby-level website. My renewal was coming up, but I had a question as to how I could qualify for a discount that I was made aware of. I opened a support chat, and in less than 20 minutes Dani had explained my options to me, helped me renew my services, and helped me cancel a service that I no longer needed. She was pleasant and efficient, which I appreciated after my 10.5 hour work day. Thanks to Dani's helpfulness, I will be able to get to bed on time, and thanks to her friendly attitude, I will be able to do so with a smile on my face! My experience this evening adds even more value to my experience with Siteground. Not only is the hosting reliable, and not only do I receive helpful tips in my email to enhance my experience, but the customer support (even for a non-VIP) is outstanding!
At Siteground support is fast and effective, hosting is fast and all other features that a hosting should have. But what makes me really happy is that as my Company is all about women, entrepreneurship and leadership, I am always concernded to see women in all positions, mainly in technical field. It is a pleasure for me to see that Siteground cares about this too. I have encountered great women in technical support and I am impressed with their knowledge and commitment. So if Siteground keep increasing women in its payroll, I will be a long time happy customer!
Sitegroud is basically straight forward, it offers only what is necessary, but the speed and uptime provided by siteground is awesome.Many people say that is too expensive and all that stuff, but I love siteground. It offers a good Cpanel and backup and restore facilities, which help me do better.
for you who is looking for honest hosting company, I do not recommend siteground, in your account panel there is no information that auto renewal service is ON by default, so when you want to use no more of their hosting service, you are automatically charged for 1 year service ($ 119.40) if you do not tell them that you want to terminate it about 2-3 months before expiration
SiteGroud SUcks ... and here's why.
I'm a recent SiteGround customer and moved because of my eCommerce store's page load speed, it was horrible. I was impressed by their pageload speeds but quickly realized that I needed to upgrade to PCI compliance. When I upgraded my site moved servers to Bucharest ... significantly changing my pageload speed and I lost any gains that I had initially received.
When I tried to achieve PCI compliance it took over 2 weeks and constant contact with customer support which was cryptic, constantly changed and never actually solved the problem. I had to go to my scanner company and get waiver after waiver, in the end SiteGround pretty much said we don't care any more and I had to deal with it.
Switching to this host has cost me hundreds of dollars and lost customers, not to mention hours of my own time. I would ask for a refund but it took over 1 month to get my site up and running and the period was over.
Outstanding support. We had an issue with an email address, went to the chat function which was answered within 45 seconds - normally unheard of - and problem was resolved in less than five minutes. No problems with these guys!
SIteground has been awesome in helping me with issues and questions. They have amazing value for their prices, offering GREAT support and overall service! They have substantial documentation that is also extremely CLEAR and addresses many many issues beyond the scope of hosting basics.I recommend them 100%.
Everybody here seems to love these guys -- and they are great until....
You have something go wrong and you need them to fix it...even if it's THEIR FAULT.
Here's my story...
I got a notice from them saying my site was close to reaching the maximum in resources. So I contacted them via CHAT and asked for an upgrade. The rep told me he would upgrade for me and it's all taken care of.
But he used the wrong credit card on my account (there are two) and the upgrade transaction did not go through. Did he notify me of this, so my site would not be shut off? NO. Not a word.
A week later my site is shut off...and after HOURS of chats and support tickets back and forth, I get them to do the upgrade. But they didn't tell me that it would take TWO DAYS and that I should stop working on the site. for TWO DAYS.
So I continued to work on the site. Needless to say, all my work for TWO DAYS was lost. Ok, I'll accept responsibility for having worked on the site when I should not have...but...
Why were they unable to grab the last database from the old server before the move was done? Why wouldn't it have been there? They said they restored the "largest database" from the old server -- but why wouldn't they just restore the database most recently updated instead? Wouldn't that make more sense?
My work was permanently lost!!
All this would have been difficult but acceptable if they had accepted some of the responsibility -- but they constantly avoided any apology or admission of any mistakes. Everything was my fault or just a technical impossibility.
THESE GUYS are over worked and not able to handle their growth. That's the only explanation I can see. VERY POOR service and very poor customer management. I'm leaving as soon as I can.
I want to move my domain. I found Siteground while surfing in the net. The live chat is amazing! I was once 6th and then twice 12th in the row but never waited even 1 minute until someone answered. Great service!! Thanks to Ivan and Miroslav. They were a great support!
I used to have my websites hosted with a cheap hosting provider called iPage. This company was awful top to bottom, they charged me for things I never ordered, had slow loading times, etc. My discontent made me search extensively for the best Hosting company out there, in fact I researched various websites for about 4 days straight until I was ready to pick the company I wanted to stick with long term. Siteground is just that, honestly the best host company I could ask for. They have great introductory pricing so you can get familiar with their features and services, and after that it is very cost-effective. Uptime is excellent, loading times are blazing fast and their customer support BOTH online and by phone are superb. The only thing I have trouble understanding is their lack of options and incentives on domain purchases. For domains I prefer buying it from Domain.com. Also I should mention Siteground has a great affiliate program and you can make some money recommending their services which I'm a fan of since I could not be happier with their services.
I shifted to Siteground recently from a free host recently. The major reason for me to shift to the paid host was that drupal requires huge resources. And the the reason I particularly chose Siteground was that I read somewhere that they are the best in Drupal-hosting. With respect to hosting a drupal website they defenitely make a good choice.Siteground is great in uptime features and support but things can get expensive in terms of upgrades. they are great for bloggers and people with no tech expertise, they will set up wordpress for FREE for you and they are FAST In doing so!
I used to use another hosting provider for years but had alot of issues. Switched to SiteGround and what an amazing experience. SiteGround are awesome. Their support is great and always there to help you fast. The hosting is secure, nexver had issues, emails always work, back end is great and everything works. Changing to SiteGround was the best decision I ever made. Full thumbs up.
I've just recently joined Siteground - before I was on WIX and I'm in the process of setting up a new Joomla site (something I've never done before as I was previously on WYSIWYG) but I gotta say:- Sitegrounds support ROCKS!! Having live chat support (as opposed to Wix's message and wait service) is fantastic!! In 5 contacts (all from my end at different times of the day) I've got my site template up and running. Even though this was a third party template - their support team helped me with the details I needed to get it up and running. Now THAT is what I call customer service!
I'm so looking forward to developing my business with Siteground for a long time.
I have used these guys since 2009 on multiple sites and accounts, personal and for business. Hosting Joomla, Wordpress and now Moodle installations. Always excellent service, quick responses and never any down time. Really have not thought of using anyone else.
I switched to Siteground from my old host to deal with the amount of traffic my site was getting. I started on the GrowBig plan for $7.95 a month.
When transferring over my old sites from a previous CPanel account, I had to contact Siteground support which was one of the most helpful support teams I've ever dealt with. English phone support was available 24/7 and there was no wait when I called. The same was true with their chat and email support, both of which were extremely fast and didn't keep me waiting.
The hosting itself does what it's supposed to and the site stayed up while receiving 11,000 hits an hour after being featured on other blogs.
Considering their prices, Siteground is the best host I have dealt with up to now, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to host WordPress or other sites inexpensively while getting top quality support.
I really like because SiteGround offers professional and fast. The site is well built and offers well-structured panels for global control of all activities. But its real strength is customer service that is formed by professional and willing to solve any problem quickly. I chose SiteGround because I read the extremely positive comments on anotherItalian blog and a few hours after purchase, after the experience I had, I woluld recommend it to everyone.
Excellent service by SiteGround. I am totally new to site hosting services and SiteGround has helped me a lot in setting up my website. Their Customer Service representatives are really helpful and give you a detailed response every time you contact them. I strongly recommend SiteGround services!
I am a 55y/o trying to work part time with our art business. We have had tremendous difficulty as of late with our emails from GoDaddy. They are using old tech. I saw that you guys were highly rated so I decided to give it a try. I also worked with Adrianna, then Ervin. I tried to abandon the whole thing because I thought i was in over my head.......both were wonderful and talked me through everything via chat! Nice work. Let's see how everything goes once the set up is complete!
Siteground is super efficient. They have one of the best customer service guys in the world. Excellent experience, customer for 2yrs and counting.
Was trying to update my plugins when all of a sudden..CRASH! Got the vicious error 500 and tried to fix the problem myself to no avail. Got a hold of an SG technical chat support in less than 10 seconds even if I was on queue behind 25+ other customers. Told my rep, Stelios about my problem (first minute), gave the error log details (second minute), he put me on hold and when he got back - my website got FIXED. Quick services, brilliant supports! What else can I ask for? Just perfect! Siteground is the best!
As Dutch speaking user of Siteground, its very helpfull if there are no misunderstandings in communication when contacting the support via chat or phone. I experienced over the past six months that the Siteground crew is very patient when asking for help. Moreover, they are really providing support since they do solve and answer your questions almost directly.
Therefore, I would recommend Siteground for all not native speakers because Siteground distinguishes itself over other hosting providers through their extemsive support options. Furthermore, they provide a wide offer for exellenct hosting sercives, thereby making them attracktive for different type of users.
Another case where I had questions that are not 08/15 and where I still received perfect support. I use the cloud hosted services and just migrated from Shared hosting to cloud hosting to be more flexible in settings for PHP and WP variables. As we have a somewaht more complex setting with multidomain and a more complex theme, some things didn´t work out like expected due to missing knowledge from my side. But a support chat solved the case in 30 minutes and I am all set now. Great support, great hosting, very fair pricing.
very good customer services. they are never try to let me wait for very long time to start talking. mostly impressively, you guys track a record of previous subjects. so i do not have to repeat myself over and over again which is something, i am sure, most customers hate. the sign up is swift and easy. i do not come across any problems during the sign up stage.
i am an expression engine user. the script pre-install does not include ee, which is disappointing. i would have expect ee is part of the script i can choice over wordpress. etc. so i end up raising my very first tech support call. i still yet to see how techno will quickly response to my install request.
another good thing is thing you guys can host ee and pre-stall free of charge. good on you. that's why i choose sitegound. keep it up.
I've been using Siteground for about 10 years. The services offered, particularly the ability to use a wide variety of apps (blogs, wikis, etc.) with my websites, are greatly appreciated as is the excellent support. Both the customer and technical support has always been of a high quality (as in -- they solved the problem) and deliver in a timely manner (as in -- immediate, like within minutes). In my book, these guys are the best !!!
Site ground is AMAZING. I have never been disappointed by the support I receive. Even on those crazy days when I login to get support and I see 57 people ahead of me I am connected "in a heartbeat" to an amazing support rep. Everyone I've every spoken with (aside from one bad experience) has been incredibly patient and helpful and addresses my needs vs. using canned responses like some other hosting companies. I'm not usually one to leave reviews (good or bad) but anytime I have to contact SG ... I am beyond satisfied when I leave.
Only just joined Siteground but I am so impressed already. I was contacted within 24 hours with all the tutorials and support details i could possibly need and the support staff on live chat are so helpful and knowledgeable. The site is easily understood and easy to navigate, with lots of tool tips if you are a bit phased by the terminology and having the live chat support on hand to help with every problem no matter how small is wonderful.
Siteground is the best host the the entire world.
I am actually a surgeon with very basic code knowledge and run my sites (only) with support from siteground. I have around more than 30 websites running on siteground since last 5 years. the problems are very few and mostly because of my errors :)
But the support at siteground is beyond excellent. They are prompt in response and very knowledgeable. Isues are resolved within minutes. Its the best service and i would recommend siteground to everyone.
The city of Amarillo has been using Siteground for about 4 months, during that time we have had to make ~15 support calls. Each call has been repsonded to on average of ~10 minutes and a solution has been found by ~15 minutes. We have been very satisfied with the service and performance siteground has offered and would suggest siteground for other cities looking for a hosted website soution.
Even though I have used several web hosts, this webhost (Siteground) is the best I have ever come across. Just as they mentioned on their site that they have 24/7 technical assistance team available, I stand to 100% agree with them. Because on several occasions, my site was dropped off the server, and whenever I noticed such, I quickly contact their support, who immediately helps me fix the problem.
For example, on May 26, 2015, my website was attacked by bots, who completely made it inaccessible to me throughout that day, but when I contacted support, they did the magic as fast as they could... And guess what? Not only have the bots been check-mated, but my site's security has also been enhanced by the experts. I love siteground, and want you to use them as your host. I bet you, signing-up with Siteground will be the best decision you shall ever take!
Top notch support and effort! I spent a few hours troubleshooting some software issues and installation issues, they killed it. They escalated the issue and the support staff was able to fix the issue within 20 mins of ending our conversation. This support team is A+++++ Highly recommended
We have had our website hosted by Siteground for over a year now. We moved it to Siteground after we had support issues with our previous provider. Siteground has been great! Can't say enough about the support when we have had issues to resolve, they are always quick and offer very good solutions.
If you are looking for a great host for your website, look no further!
I think it was all in one service which I love to use. First I have an experience in php programming and setting up a localhost and it always waste a time!
So I love your pre-installation service and fast support system. I think both things I mention is the good things but I hope that you will include free template installation service from themeforest. :)
I am maintaining a lot of Joomla! sites for my customers.
I moved to siteground and was instantly impressed by the amount of features they offer, it is much more than other hosters do.
For example the Joomla staging makes updating / Migrating much more comfortable, without having a downtime.
Also siteground offers the best support I've used so far! The live chat is very quick and technical competence of the supporters is above average! The siteground staff is not just helping with minimum effort, I always feel like they are achieveing the best possible solution for me!
One thing that could be improved is the billing options. In Germany, copanies usually do not like to use credit cards or paypal. A recurring bank transfer options would be nice!
As a non-technical client of Siteground their support is quite astounding both in speed of response and patience. I would recommend their service to anyone particularly thinking of using Wordpress as they are experts.
We switched to Siteground from another web hosting company. It's the best move that we made for our website and company. Their customer service is fantastic. Someone always answers the phone and if there are any technical questions or issues to be resolved, including updates, they take care of it immediately and efficiently.
I highly recommend Siteground.
I am so impressed with this service. The hosted services has great UI. The applications installed are great and it's easy to manage. Great scalability, but more importantly, their support is first rate. Really love their service. Would highly recommend.
I have been working with Siteground for a few years now and can, hand on heart, say I have NEVER had a problem with their service - particularly the live chat and technical support. Always courteous even when I ask the same question too many times .
Siteground staff is always helpful, polite, and willing to answer any question about my site, no matter what it might be. I have been blogging on Blogger for over 7 years, and thought I knew what I was doing, but Word Press is a completely different ball game, and Siteground has been invaluable in helping me set up, and run my site. I'm always happy to recommend them to any blogger looking to self host.
I have to say - I have never worked with a more responsive support team and I appreciate that. I have had some very minor issue with down time for a few minutes here and there - have not nailed down exactly why but other than that there have been no incidents and those were very very minor. Thank you sitegraound for being a great service provider
SiteGround always offers quick, fast, detailed reports. Now it's not only fast replies that I love from them (their live Technical support chat is a click away on their main site) but that they give relevant responses. I've had so many hosts that give you cookie cutter or canned responses which only add to the frustration, but I never get that with SiteGround. Plus, SiteGround prices are excellent.
I have sites that get a couple million hits a month, and SiteGround hosts that cheaply with no problems.
Very pleased with Siteground. I am a complete novice but I feel very well supported. Their live chat feature was very useful to help me start my website. They will even transfer my site from the Wordpress site free of charge, although it might not look exactly the same.
I just submitted a support ticket to siteground for a technical issue I didn't understand and they resolved my issue within 5 minutes!
I could have experienced a whole day of downtime waiting for assistance with this issue but now that it's been resolved so quickly I can keep moving forward with my business. I really like knowing that if I ever run into trouble again I can expect very prompt (and helpful) assistance.
Its good hosting company I am one of the resaller customers, you guys changed the capacity from 780GB to 10GB with out informing us. if you are decreasing the space capacity you should also decrease the price for one resaller credit. Everything is cool but you know i have almost 22 websites with you but am not happy with the space reduction. My customers are not happy with this one.
was using siteground cloud services. They are very expensive but I expected that I will get a professional support. They has two issues that I needed to struggle to get it fixed, as a result none of them wasn't fixed...
I guess this is a normal situation, lack of professional technical support.
Of course I didn't get any refund for my account, even though it didn't work eventually...
I've been using Siteground for the past years, and I don't even consider the option of moving to another provider. Their support is efficient and are always willing to assist you no matter how small your issue is.
PLUS! I love the fact that they're european based!
I am so pleased with the turn around of my support tickets, less than 5 minutes on average, and the high level of service your representatives provide. Thank you!
The support I've received from Siteground in the short time I've been with them is phenomenal, and far exceeds my previous hosting support. They are prompt, thorough, and have exceptional documentation that is easy to follow for people with all levels of technical knowledge. My entire organization can easily submit tickets and understand exactly how to proceed. Siteground's built-in caching and security features are incredibly intuitive and simple to use, and my clients have actually noticed the increased performance. They are worth the money in every way, and I'm incredibly happy to have made the switch.
Every single month my site www.wild4roots.com goes down with SiteGround. I'm not sure about all these other reviews? No way am I the only one having this bad luck with a website with very low traffic.
They do fix the site pretty quickly but I don't check my site everyday to know how long its been down.
I'm looking for another webhost company. Only with siteground for 1 year and 1 year too long.
Honestly, I never leave reviews on forums because I usually feel it's a waste of my time/ like no one will read them - but this time I don't care because Siteground is just so awesome they deserve a great review. To be succinct, I don't know where the world would be without Siteground. I've tried 3 other hosting companies and their support **sucks**; Siteground is friendly (not the fake friendly kind either) and most important efficient, helpful, and competent. I love too that on chat you can "upgrade" immediately to a senior though I've rarely needed to do that. They are super quick and responsive (other hosts - i know because i've tried- send you through a runaround with their tech team until you want to kill them or yourself - not literally, obvi) . Anyway, I'm pretty sure every time I interact with siteground i think "where would the world be without siteground". Ok, that's it.
I'm an ole fart who actually ran a big dot com (for a while); but always hired people to do the stuff, I'm now attempting. Siteground has been very impressive, thus far, in willingness to assist and ability to resolve issues quickly. Thanks Much!
They always do the best to help :) and they are so professional too, they work so hard fix any situation with your services with Siteground, definitely they are the best :) don't look for another hosting provide.
and look how my website is so fast: http://www.monzongraphicdesign.com
Siteground is right place for anybody to start their business. There support is excellent and if you have any problems either on your server side or from your end, they are going to solve this very soon. I am pleased to host my wordpress site here which I would recommend others.
I want to tell you that i am very satisfied about the online help site ground provides. I am no computer- of websitespecialist at all but every question i had, was answered immediately and very accurate and in a comprehensive way. Thank you very much for that. (a review hasn't to be always negative :-) ).
The support at Siteground has been awesome. They provide excellent service and are very helpful when you have a question. I would highly recommend them! Our site performance and uptime has been much improved from our last hosting provider.
Siteground is amasing. Rocks.
The best part about siteground, is their fanatic support. 2 reasons for that:
a. When you open a support ticket, it gets answered almost immediately.
b. The quality of answers here takes the pie. They have technically qualified people on support. That makes the difference.
We love siteground, period.
This company started out brilliantly. Very responsive support and people whom bent over backwards to help solve problems. Sadly, that is no more, their customer support sucks.
The hosting is great, although recently one of my websites has been going down a lot, but the support is great, and otherwise with my other websites they have been going great. The interface is modern, yet easy to use and there is lots of options to choose from when starting up your website. I would definitely recommend Siteground!
I recently moved two of my websites to Siteground. I was looking for a hosting provider that would provide easy access for development and especially had services that provided better security. Siteground not only met these requirements but in my opinion has so far exceeded what we needed for our sites. I appreciate how quickly they respond to service tickets and the great tools they offer.
Great Hosting . Better than hostgator and any other host. 99.9% uptime . Web pages load very quickly . Hassle free support and a wonderful hosting account . I have used many hosting providers such as hostgator, godaddy dollar2host, hostripples and some others but siteground a reliable provider . Love Siteground. Friendly support.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff, service appears to be way above par, reviews all over the internet suggest that they are the best, their salesperson has confirmed this to be true from every hosting site I have been on.
We are a internet communications company and we have so much faith in site ground for the wonderful quality, up time, and the service is the best i have ever seen that we are hosting our websites outside with them instead of having our own in house people handle it. They are worth every penny and then some. We have referred customers to them already.
I had a problem with site verification and it was solved asap and even went out of their way and did the verification for me. Siteground rocks so far. The response rate via chat is superb but not so by phone as I had to wait and hung up.
Easy to Use, Great service, Excellent Support, Slick and Efficient. I am truly impressed. I believe if they are not the major player in hosting if they keep up the level of service I have received consistently over the last three years, I have no doubt they will be the top player in the field in no time.
Overall I think Siteground is pretty good, however, I do not like that I have to do everything through support tickets. I use another hosting company for some customers of mine, and I prefer to speak with a technical support person. I find it frustrating to have to wait for an answer. The answers do come fairly rapidly, but although this may be more efficient for Siteground, it is not efficient for me, since I have to wait glued to my mailbox to wait for an answer. What could be a 10 minute conversation, resolved quickly over the phone, turns into a 3 hours turn around time, while we send messages back and forth. The few times I have called for tech support, I have always been asked to make a support ticket instead, since the people manning the phones are not GURU techs.
That being said, every support ticket has been answered satisfactorily in the end. I just don't like the prolonged process.
From the moment we first started with Siteground, I knew I had made the right choice. First, they helped me migrate my Magento-based website after my original developer/host just went belly up and didn't tell us he'd sold the business. Siteground made the transfer easy, and we got it done the right way on the first try.
Since then, Siteground has been there for me time after time after time: Back up issues, upgrade/update issues, template changes... and their support team is QUICK! I can submit a ticket at 1am before I fall asleep, and when I get up at 7am I can see my answer has been sitting their waiting for me for several hours.
If you value real service and real support, then there is no better choice than Siteground.
Ivan killed it transferring my domain. He was able to address all of my questions for a highly visible client and take care of all the things I didn't know how to do or even explain. He was knowledgeable and was great to work with. Siteground has been outstanding with its support and overall reassurance to get my site up and running.
I might think that this web hosting is perfectly great, fortunately to have this for all my sites. The valued supports are extremely excellent and great, the operators of live chat are talented to have their knowledge perfect and they always do great on every problems I asked, up to now. So keep this rocking buddy. Let the professionals always do the jobs for their customers. Great. Great. Great. Bravo!!!
I only give you guys 5 stars is because that's all is available. Customer support was super duper awesome :), i spoke to a guy name @Konstantin K and he was really helpful and answer all my question to his best and also give me few advice as it concern to the hosting plan that is best for my needs etc... and looking forward to move few sites and new sites to SiteGround, because , no offense to Godaddy who sometime move slower than a snail. but siteground is highly and highly recommended by anyone. its cheap, fast, reliable, you name it , it has it. so guys keep the excellent work. :)
I researched different hosting services for about 6 months. I didn't have to actually build my website and find a serving provider for a while, so it gave me a lot of time to read reviews and do my research. I never write reviews, but I had to write one for Siteground. Their customer service has been exceptional!!!! I never thought customer service was a big factor in my purchase decision, until AFTER I hooked up with Siteground and started building my website. I had no idea the amount of problems I would run into as a first time WordPress user. Anytime I ran into an issue, I called Siteground and they took care of my problems ASAP. They ALWAYS answer the phone after about 2 seconds on hold, literally. Then they not only diagnose the problem, but they take care of it all for you on their end. They don't give you instructions or send you a stupid link to follow, they just do it all themselves. I also ran into 2 or 3 more technical problems with more complexity. These problems were a little too advanced for the customer support line, but the issue still always got solved within like 15 minutes. They fill out what's called a ticket form and send it to their advanced technical support team. They review the ticket within minutes, and write back to you with a response. Their responses so far have been that they solved the problem and already took care of everything for me. I had no idea customer support was so important with a hosting provider, but thank god I chose Siteground, because they have been able to handle every mistake I've made so far or any problem I've encountered! They have the best customer service out of any company (in an industry) I've ever dealt with, hands down.
I don't understand why my experience is so different from that of the people who wrote rave reviews of this host. I canceled my services because four tech support people in a row seemed to not understand a problem that to me seems simple to understand - my web page refused to reflect changes to CSS.
In addition, questions left on support forums were not answered,nor were questions on Chat. Searches in their Knowledgebase seldom brought up anything useful.
At first I was extremely enthused about the host because they seem to offer so many helpful information resources. But in the month I was with them, I was seldom able to find anything directly applicable to whatever I was trying to solve.
The most irritating thing of all is that when I did finally decide to cancel using their online form, I was redirected to a tech support person who wanted me to review everything I had experienced before he would cancel. I refused, having already wasted a huge amount of time, and he continued to press me. He relented when I told him I was getting angry.
By the way, I noticed that on the Chat windows, they show how many customers a particular Chat person has served. I never saw any number over 900. Figure that out. In an 8-hour day, how many people can you help? Surely one an hour at a minimum, but likely many more than that. So to be fair say two an hour, a low estimate. That's 80 a week, or less than twelve work weeks to serve 900 customers, with my figures scewed to give the highest possible benefit of the doubt to Siteground, so the job life expectancy of any Chat person is probably much less. To me, this suggests that Siteground can't keep people in that job. No wonder they can't solve problems. No one stays long enough to really learn the ropes. Siteground's claim that they hire experts? No comment, especially since the guy who moderated the two forums I visited didn't bother to answer questions half the time, and when he did, he did so inadequately.
Thank you for providing such an awesome support team.
They made it easy to understand what was required by me, though ended up doing most things for me.
Siteground makes managing my websites and domains easy.
Been smooth since we started.
What provoked me to write a review now was the awesome Customer Service I received just now through Live Chat.
I had Tanya as my service provider and she was absolutely magnificent. She addressed all of my concerns and did it in such a smooth and pleasant manner.
Siteground are a pleasure to work with in every aspect of hosting, advice and support.
I would always recommend using them to anyone and everyone.
The services they offer are very competitive and I speaking to support via chat is a breeze. Having moved around with different hosting companies before I can tell you I have noticed a big difference with Siteground and I believe they are one of the better companies to choose from.
I used Siteground for 7 years and found the service very reliable and good support. The reason I'm leaving it is I now use a service which supports portfolio web sites very simply and Siteground is overkill for what I need right now.
I am using services of Siteground from last one year and really found very very helping and professional services by them.
Never say no for any kind of assistance and moreover within very short time like 15 minute only, they are responding and resolving the issues.
My domain is www.technoadviser.com hosted with them and additionally I have recommended many of my clients to use the same and they all are very much happy with the same experience.
Really I recommend to buy services from Siteground, as they do not consider us as their client, but they consider us as their partner.
Thanks Siteground and I wish to continue with you only and also want my clients and partner to go with you.
Thanks & Regards,
Site Ground gives absolutely superb customer service and has, for me, done everything I have needed immediately on the spot.. The technical help is superb – they have solved caching issues in the most excellent way. Price hasn't really been an issue but there is no doubt that their plans are the best I have seen.
I had a website hosted with another company, I contacted SiteGround presales who made it simple for me with transfering and what not.
Extremely competitive pricing as it was on sale. The staff member I spoke to (Ivan) was fantastic and facilitated everything for me, helped me along with my account set up and transfer form fill out.
Extremely pleased, love the UA of SiteGround compared to others and loving the low prices I'm paying for excellent service.
I signed up with them March 19 because of the fantastic reviews on this site. contrary to the rave reviews here, I have had abysmal support from them. It doesn't do any good to connect with a support person in ten minutes if the answers you get are not only wrong, but idiotic. I spent a day and a half and went through three support people and still can't solve a problem with CSS changes that don't propagate to my Web pages. This is in a theme that Siteground created!
I am very pleased with the quality of Siteground. However, as a Dutch person it is sometimes difficult for me to understand the questions right. Also because, even though I have a website, I am not very familiair with all the technical details. During the chat it would be nice if somebody would explain where I should find some details. In the end all went fine.
SiteGround is the best for support, if you found the webhost company who listerns at any condition, sometimes we web developers gets frustrated from some lines of codes which we are actually not well off on server side, but siteGround recommends, assists and develop the knowledge to developers. I appreciate their kindness....Thankyu very much siteGround, I RECOMMEND THEM FOR THE BEST UPTIME ALL TIME WEBSITES
If you have have ever launched a website, you know the nervous, semi-panic that hits ya in those moments when you 'flip the switch' on - and worse, that pang of "oh &^%$@!" i forgot something, or missed something when you look at the site for the first time. Perhaps it was setting an MX Entry, or redirecting a particular page from an old site. Well, in my experiences with SiteGround these past 2 years they have managed to calm that panic for me within MINUTES of posting a support ticket. That has been a HUGE stress-relief and reassurance that I am trusting the right folks to take care of my business.
That is above and beyond their Great uptime, features for WordPress that i have come to love and depend on and terrific add-ins like SuperCacher -- I only have love for SiteGround! :)
Being a webmaster, I've worked with several webhosting companies, but Siteground is the best host I've come in contact with, and used. I highly recommend Siteground to all.
I do a lot of research before choosing a cloud hosting company for my business. I wouldnt mention names but the truth is most of the popular hosting giants have failed in one criteria or the other. Siteground on the other hand not only meets up with expectations, they also meet up with all the expected criteria ou would desire from an hsting company. My websites have never been offline, their uptime is super amazing, the support is great as i get answers in fe seconds after initiating a chat. I am please with Siteground services and much as I have recommended to several companies, I still recommend them any day anytime to more and more companies. I have been with them for a very long time now and I don't see myself changing to another company ever since I moved all my websites to them. Siteground rocks! you will definately enjoy them!
I have worked with two other hosts and can say without reservation that SiteGround has the best Customer Service to be found. It is responsive, understandable, and yields results. I would recommend SiteGround without reservation. Other services are superb also, uptime, new services etc.
I had fantastic service from Ivan at SiteGround. He answered my questions, helped me get registered. Explained the ins and outs of each service, and got my wordpress site uploaded as well. I was between SiteGround and Dreamhost but when contacting both simultaneously and getting in contact with Ivan at SiteGround within 15 seconds, it was a no brainer. Great service.
Siteground technical help is very efficient and their staff are always helpful and courteous. The hosting package is always bang up to date with latest php etc and updating / installing Joomla is simple and automated. Good service at a reasonable price.
Siteground does rock! My reason is the fact that their Live Chat is there within seconds if I need them. The support is 100% pure. Anton is usually the one I ask to be directed to. He's helped me with every possible thing I've needed. I've upgraded several times with them so far without issues to increase my RAM and CPUs. I have no complaints. I receive emails regularly letting me know my site is Hacker Safe. There really isn't anything else I can ask for. Smooth sailing...
This is my first ever review for a hosting provider. I moved to Siteground for their exceptional support and the guys you chat or talk to know exactly how to sort things. I can say with closed eyes you can move to this provider.
I've not been in this business for long but i've tried a few and Siteground is the best so far. They have a great control panel which is very user friendly they provide loads of scripts for your application needs and most important of all a superb support service.
I was very impressed with the throrough customer support provided by the presales team at siteground. I needed a dedicated server asap. Although the normal policy is 2-5 days, I expressed the urgent need and was told it may be done in a few hours. They are currently working on getting this done. I am confident i will hear back from them soon. Best of all they did not charge me an expedite fee for this service.
great support quick,good price not the cheapest but it worth it.so far so god, only complain managment should have a table with the codes and ways to dial to international users, i had to google to know how the need to dial a cellphone in argentina,yahoo answers solved it. but its just a detail. my site was ready at minutes afther signup, they called me and did the setup for me. great!
I am a new customer of Siteground, less than 1 week. I was sold on the service after reading all the feedback and comments. I signed up after several days of research and thought everything was great. Here I am a a week later and finding out you cant call and talk to a live person, everything is done through chat, and you have to open a ticket if there is an issue or help is needed. Another fun fact if you are doing work on your site and you want an on demand backup that is not an option if your site is over 500mb is size. They DISABLE your Cpanel backup wizard. If you want an on demand backup you have to pay $25 for them to do it. Their solution is to give you an article with downloading all your files thru FTP. How does this help and whats the point of having a hosting company that charges to backup your files that they are hosting plus no live person you can talk to! How does this place stay in business and why it is getting high reviews from your site? I would not recommend them to ANYONE.
I can not say more than perfect hosting company! These Live chat/support is perfect and they help and answer all my questions. I do not work with so many hosting companies, but Siteground with all support and features are best!!!
I've been with SiteGround for about 10 years now and am a huge fan of their service. all of my clients, i send to SiteGround - i have probably 11 clients hosting on SiteGround and they never seem to have an issue. When I do run into an issue - fine folks in tech support like Ervin are there to lend a hand. Ten Thumbs Up for SIteGround and their staff - they're amazing!!
Have refereed Siteground hosting to bunch of my clients ans have always rec positive response. The customer service is always an extra mile driven. Really appreciate Siteground for such a knowledgeable support team. Also never had to wait for long wait time, unlikely how it happens with most of the support or helplines. Will surely work with Siteground in future
We are extremely happy with siteground and its support team. You guys ROCK because you are so helpful and have great communications.
After dealing with two horrible hosts and having my website down for two weeks, Siteground got it transferred and running within a couple of hours of me joining. Brilliant and friendly support. So glad I switched!
Excellent ! I've been used to OVH and recently discovered Siteground. The price is just a little higher, but the service is SOOOO much better. Incredible hotline that really works 7/7 24/24 and is not afraid of Joomla and other CMS, but mainly who consider you as a valuable client !
best support ever . i am always impressed by how great the guys here are
they're most supportive than any other service i ever experienced
and they also look really smart and assertive
siteground is 100 times better than godaddy ( which i was using before )
thanks god i found its reviews on the internet
Professional and patience. I'm italian and they help me in all registration procedure, transferred to the e-commerce website, created the new domain and install wordpress for my new blog. Top!!
1. Free CDN and own caching plugin
When you sign up at Siteground you get access to CDN for free. This means that they have a network of 24 servers spread all over the globe and once you activate CDN, your website will be copied on these servers. This makes sure that a person from another continent also gets a high trasfer rate. Siteground even created an own caching Plugin for their customers to speed up your site.
2. Low prices
When you sign up at Siteground it costs you 3,95€ (thats the price in germany) per month. When you are a student it only costs 1,99€/month. I don't know much hosters with the same condition
3. Perfect Support
The Siteground support was the deciding reason I signed up. When you contact them they will solve every problem. No matter if it has to do with the hosting or with WordPress. They also have a 30 days money back promotion and this shows that they are convinced of themselves. They know that they are great.
For all german readers I also wrote an article about Siteground in german language. You can check it out here: http://website-n-media.de/webseite/das-richtige-hosting/
I have been with Siteground hosting for a few months now, specifically because of their specializing in Wordpress, which I have several domains and subdomains with Wordpress installed. Overall I would say I'm happy with them. Speed has been good, and uptime excellent. Only thing on a negative I would say so far is that I was going to transfer a domain from another hosting service to Siteground that also has domain privacy. Although free for the first year, the price per year with Siteground is $24.95, and with the other hosting service $9.99. Obviously I will not be transferring my other domains that need privacy to Siteground for the almost 3 times the price per year.
Awesome support, very efficient, kind patient and again, simply awesome. I'm so glad I found Siteground! Highly recommended! Hope they keep being this way and not end up being bought out by big corporations like Endurance International...!
Damn these guys are GOOD!!!
a) Signed up for hosting.
b) 1 hour later they transferred my Joomla site from old hosting company to Siteground.
c) 1 hour later received info on changing my hosts file while waiting for DNS changes to take effect at Domain Registrar. Looks Awesome!
d) By this time tomorrow my site will be live and I'LL BE ONE HAPPY CAMPER!
Thank You SiteGround!
Single most knowledgeable staff I have worked with. In the wild west of Domain Hosting and *FREE SPACE* pay by the day motel style hosting...these guys are the Ritz Carlton.
Never had such helpful support guys. Pity I did not know about you guys sooner as I would have used you long ago. will definitly recommend to my mates.
Everything is good if you are gonna host with sitegroung but there is a one huge problems that is their plans is divided into; like this, this is suitable for 10,000/25,000/100,000 visitors/ month , that is only the problem i have. If you look at bluehost and hostgator there is not like this. I hope you will host on the best hosting company for the better performance.
Great support. Really fast, polite and with the right knowledge. Even in weekends and in the evenings they are ready to help you. So much better than my previous host. Really super value for money. Keep up the good work!
So far so; you guys are responsive and that is good for me.
I'd love to be able to have different sign ins for each domain though, this way if you have different developers on each site it makes it better.
I've been with siteground now for a few months and have been thoroughly impressed with the support I have received and the hosting performance.
I moved another wordpress site today with their help and then tested site speed to see a massive improvement over my previous host without even resorting to caching (from page speed grade F before to B now).
i like and recommending to others also.
since few i'm using this. specially i'm very happy with your technical support.
chat and case ticket. they are responding very fast and accurate
I have been with SiteGround for about 6 months after transferring from another company. I am so pleased with the communication SiteGround has provided. Their customer service is super nice, and technical support is always quick to respond to site issues.
It's very good in quality ratio, less in price...
But I balanced pros and cons and checked with colleagues who are expert in this field as well and they all advised me Siteground for the security and the speed, so I decided that I wanted to look deeper into my pockets and consider it an investment, because in the end it is for my own sake, in my own benefit, so that my website and my customers' will load really much quicker and I we would would sleep clam without the previous problems I had experienced with spam and hacking in my previous hostings.
I wish it were a bit cheaper, but sincerely I couldn't find anything of its rate at lower price; anything that could compare to this hosting is by far much more expensive and the features and advantages are less by far.
I took a promo and invested and bought 3 years and now I feel backed up, secure and I know that I can offer sound quality and reliability to my customers.
My experience with Siteground turned out to be a complete waste of time. I signed up for a year of hosting expecting good things. I checked via their online chat if they would do a full cpanel transfer for me, and I was assured that they would. However, what I was not told was that they would require an additional $200 to do the transfer.
My previous host did it for free and the hosting company I am going with now over Siteground has also said they will do the transfer for free, and that they actually prefer to do a full cpanel transfer as opposed to just transferring one site which is what Siteground offers for free.
In short if you have just one website you are transferring or are just getting started with a hosting company Siteground may be a good option, but if you are like me and own multiple websites I don't see any need to shell out $250 for a cpanel transfer. They just lost themselves a potential customer for many years to come.
Hopefully this review helps others at least make an informed decision.
Amazing service, good quality hosting! The team is always willing to help. I have been using their services for over 4 years and I have never had any problem! Really satisfied with Siteground!
Siteground is the best hosting service that I have found. For a beginner like me - Site Ground offers the most incredible support. All assistance asked for is provided in a most friendly and efficient manner. The best part is that Site Griund is open 24/7. Great for a night owl like me. Thanks Site Ground.. I am your best advocate.
Outstanding simplified service. I didn't have to say a word! Awesome! And, my problem was solved almost immediately! Nice job DV!
Renewing all hosting services with Siteground, again!
Better, and cheaper, again!
They keep R&D effort and keep upgrading their technology.
The best place to host a Joomla site. Don't search anymore!
SiteGround was extremely quick at resolving my issue and they were very professional. I highly recommend web hosting with SiteGround.
Siteground continues to impress me with their stellar support any time of day. Stefan, one of the Siteground techs, just helped me solve an email send issue on some new accounts I set-up, and not only did he fix the issue, but showed me where and how I can fix them myself, if I see the issue in the future. With my previous hosting company I was used to waiting 2 days for a tech to get back to me, and then wondering what they did to solve my problem. I would usually just get an email saying it was resolved, or they needed more information. Siteground techs are there when you need them, and do their best to solve your problem on the spot. Thank you Siteground for awesome customer service. 5 stars from me!
I had lost the entire information file, domain name, password. Ivan did a great job of getting me back online.
I've had nothing but good experiences with Siteground! I currently have 3 domains with them and have hosted a few others with them in the past. They have always answered all my questions regardless of how silly or complicated they were. Today I realized that I had an old/expired hosting plan with them that I forgot about, and they quickly moved all my domains to the new hosting account in a matter of 2 minutes.
Super helpful in every way!
I could not be more pleased with Siteground. I had a technical problem with my wordpress site (my fault). I searched and searched for a solution. In the end I decided to contact Siteground through their live chat. 7 minutes later the problem was fully resolved. I was amazed. I have not had that kind of customer service before. Could not be more happy with my choice to choose Siteground. Well done whoever helped me.
Siteground absolutely ROCKS! Anton V was able to answer ALL my questions and surprised me by explaining so much more! He even walked me through the registration process and creating a paypal invoice AND even set up my WordPress and username and password so that I am ready to go! I am completely and utterly blown away by the service! THANK YOU!
I haven't been with Siteground for very long however I have had many tickets and issues that required support (I'm a newbie) and the customer service and attention to detail is amazing. It's very, very refreshing to have a company that is so attentive to customer service - there aren't a lot of companies these days that take that seriously anymore. Every single member of your staff I have dealt with has gone above and beyond to assist and help resolve things and they're all so friendly!! I will be recommending to anyone to make sure to use your service. Bravo!!
Very professional people!!!!...I had a little doubt about the site transfer from Altervista and they have dispelled all my doubts!!
Their tag is "Web Hosting Crafted with Care". Are you guys kidding me. I just bought a year of your high end hosting service and when you did the transfer you did not point the MX records back to GoDaddy so I went 5 days without receiving any business emails. You knew I had any email with GoDaddy because 1. I gave you my email address that had my website name in it 2. you had all the login info to my GoDaddy account so you could do the transfer. So you knew my email would get cut off and didn't even tell me (your customer). Even you tech support person told me your company does not have a policy to tell people their email is cut off - when you know about it.
Your tag line should read "Web Hosting That Does Not Give a Damn About Our Customers". That would be more accurate.
Hopefully your hosting is better than your support.
Siteground Rocks! I was looking for a different hosting company when I stumbled across site ground. My requirements were fairly straight forward, cpanel access, wordpress stable, SSL capable, eCommerce friendly, 99.9% up time, and responsive support. I got them all and then some with SiteGround. From the very beginning when I was inquiring about hosting plans and different options I received incredibly quick responses from their support. And unlike some other companies, once they had my money, the STILL provide incredibly quick responses, regardless of the question. Another bonus was that they migrated my site for me, I simply set up credentials for them and they took care of the rest. Being a busy IT professional I am capable of migrating the site myself however having it included in the first year costs why use my valuable time doing a migration. Once the migration was complete I went back through, double checked everything and was able to give it the green light with no changes! For a non-IT person to have access to a migration service that's included in the cost to start up the account is a savings of many dollars. Outside of getting the site up and running another added feature that I was excited about was that I was able to select which data center I preferred. Last and certainly not least the backup options and hacking alerts notification are features that are not just a "want" but a "need". All in all, I highly recommend SiteGround for anyone looking for a quality hosting provider. You get what you pay for and SiteGround is definitely worth the cost and then some.
Do not sign up at this company.
Sales team are ready to help you until you pay, then they don´t care about you.
We pace order and in 20 min should the migration start from old old, buuut, its take 12 hours to migrate 1 site and then they wanna 2000 EURO to migrate the rest of the sites.
sales team told me I will get all money back if I canccel the order, but after 15 hours I try to canccel the order 6-7 times, they no wanna me to canccel.
But I told them I am not interested and wanna money back...
No its not possible to get money back, so they cost us 156EURO for 15 hours hosting...
NEVER SHOICE THIS HOST!
Great tech support and always cutting-edge features, up-to-date software. Love the new WordPress install script!
Your support are all rockstars, but I found the server to be sometimes slow and back to normal. but yea generally hands down to all support team in live chat!
I'm in Egypt and we don't have a great support like Siteground I'll suggest it for all web-owner that's in my town
Everything is great, I just wish you had something like Adwords or Facebook credits to offer new clients.
Your support team is amazing. The ability to escalate to a superior is something I particularly liked. I only used it once, but it made me feel confident that if I'm not getting the help I need, I don't have to log out and log back in and hope for a new representative. I also really liked the senior tech team! They fixed my problem within 15 minutes and went above and beyond what I asked to make the site better for me. Siteground... rocks....
Fantastic support and they guided me through a domain name transfer and reassured me along the way. First class speedy high quality support! Thank you
After dealing with iffy uptime and slow response times on GoDaddy for years, I've had enough. I did a little research and found SiteGround, which came highly recommended for wordpress sites and in general for their uptime and customer support. I decided to make the switch, figuring that if I hated it there was a 30-day money back guarantee and signed up for a year of hosting. Right off the bat, GoDaddy was giving me issues because their hosting panel's servers were down so my free wordpress database and file transfer was delayed, but Siteground's tech support was very responsive when GoDaddy's was not. They were polite, extremely helpful, and got my site up and running for me perfectly as soon as GoDaddy's issues were resolved.
I've only been with them a short time, but already my site is ten times faster, never has outage blips (which used to occur weekly with GoDaddy!) and I've had no issues that weren't resolved immediately by opening a support ticket or opening a chat window. I am now working on convincing my clients to move their sites to Siteground as well. It is well worth the switch.
My old hosting service (Network Solutions) met my needs for MySQL and PHP and the uptime was good but the customer service at the old company could not have been much worse. I was unable to talk to anyone to get billing issues resolved. I had been with them for 9 years and had a huge content-oriented website that I knew would be a challenge to get everything transferred and working but about a month ago I decided to take the plunge and move. It turned out to be a very good move.
The features at SiteGround include all the things I would expect from a modern hosting service, including cPanel which I find to be much easier to navigate than the management tool at my old service.
The price, an unbelievable value for their entry level plan when you consider the features and the service they provide.
The uptime, I am being a bit conservative in giving them 4 instead of 5 stars. I found the site down for server maintenance early one morning, but consider I am using a shared server at their entry level plan, and they were doing planned server maintenance. The good news, as soon I as I went to support to enter a ticket, there was a message informing me of exactly what was going on, and the site was back up in just a few minutes.
The service - this is where SiteGround is absolutely amazing. I had a lot of issues to resolve with my ancient website to clear up some things that I had been ignoring at the old site. Anytime I put in a ticket I had a response within minutes - and not just a "we'll get back to you later" response. An ACTUAL response that quickly solved the problem. This included many questions I did not really expect to be within the scope of their basic customer service, like advise on how to cure MySQL problems with accented characters.
If you don't like to use their ticket/chat service, you can call on the phone and talk to someone, but I only needed to do that once for an issue I did not know how to explain. They also have an outstanding FAQ database and library of instructions on everything from the basics to SEO.
And okay, here are the only negative things I could say. 1. There is a limit on Inode usage that was not made clear to me when I signed up. 15,000 for their minimum plan. I had many thousands of small image files used as instant thumbnails and stored on the server instead of built there on demand. After nine years I had built up a lot of unused ones which did not impact storage space very much but did impact Inode count. I had to go in and clean up my website to get well under the limit. 2. There is a 2000 file limit on the FTP client listings, so I had to break up some subdirectories to see them all in Filezilla. (Still had the alternative to use their file manager on cPanel). I am guessing these are things that would be standard on almost any entry level web hosting plan.
So bottom line, I could not be happier with SiteGround! They are a great value and absolutely the best for support and customer service. I am not sure how they would be for a WYSIWYG type web builder tool because I did not use anything like that, but for certain they have met all my needs and at a very good price.
I have been in contact with two different assistants today and both of them were EXCELLENT !!!! I have recommended Siteground to my froends, and one friend took up your hosting plan yesterday
I hosted several web sites with HostPapa but was extremely unhappy, their security was lax, the support was poor and when they more than doubled my hosting costs I decided to switch.
Since all my sites use Jooma SiteGround was a good fit. I have found their support to be second to none, their personnel actually answer questions rather than simply copy-pasting something that might be approximately correct. Performance on their servers seems to be pretty good, I get good response times. Their auto-update of Joomla is also a benefit.
I will be shifting other web sites away from HostPapa to SiteGround
I've been using it for a short time, I moved my website from a free host to siteground and so far I can see the benefits, the Wordpress tools are pretty good and the support is remarkable, is fast and accurate, they have help me to move my site smoothly.
Techincal support was right there to help. They couldn't solve the intermittent issue, but, gave me suggestions and a link to get further help if I ran into the problem again. The customer service agent cared and made sure it was working before she moved on to another caller. I really appreciate the time the support.
Siteground is one of those rare companies where what they deliver exceeds their marketing hype. I have been pleasantly surprised at every turn.
Siteground rocks. It has excellent uptime and swift customer service.
If you want to host a Joomla website then is the best choice worldwide!!!
One word, Amazing and Awesome!
Sorry that was 3 words! :)
Keep up the great job guys.
I feel very safe and well take care of.
I found you just before starting giving up on finding a hosting provider with everything you have and I did not know those features where ever existed!
Greatest of all the support! Awesome! Really friendly, fast, and nice and competent individuals! I can just keep going... but I am sure you already understand where the words come from :)
BIG hugs and do try them out, they offer 30 days money back guarantee ;)
Siteground Always best with all types of support and customer service rep answers all questions and will retail all the customers the way they spoke was nice and friendly and in professional manner. Will tell my friends to use Site ground other sites only provide support for domains but you guys provide support for all technical issues. Happy doing business with you
One of the reasons I love working with Siteground is your amazing Customer Support. They have always found a solution for my requests. I feel that I truly have a business partner in SiteGround. Would recommend it to anyone.
I've tried all the big ones, like webhosting hub or media temple. Either you have a low payment and a horrible customer service and product or you have to pay twice as much you pay in Siteground.
If you want the best for less, go for SiteGround.
AMAZING customer service, not only fast but caring and involved.
The serves are lightening fast and the CPU power is greater than the competition for a cheap price.
bluehosting and webhosting hub are NOTHING compared to them.
I have not been a customer long enough to speak to values, features and uptime, but I really just wanted to say how much I appreciate the SERVICE! Wow, I have been using godaddy for years and struggling to figure everything out on my own because godaddy's standard response to a plea for help is usually a link to one of their self-help pages or the "we let you run wordpress on our server but we don't support it". This is my first day with siteground and their techs have helped me off and on all day. They are super quick and responsive on CHAT (which is my preferred support method), they know what they are talking about, they are polite and they jump right in and really help you. This is such a welcome change! It has been a long day but it all worked out because I had help at every step!
Siteground provides a quick hosting service with all the bells and whistles you can pay for. Their initial setup is smooth and they offer transfers of some times of web sites for a reasonable cost. It seemed like we were off to a nice start.
Unfortunately, their hosting has been down for me several times and each time I check with their service, it's suddenly a "planned maintenance" time (even though I had not been notified ahead of time). Some of these outages have lasted for many hours. (I just experienced a 4+ hour outage before writing this review. Yes, it was also "planned" without notice.) Furthermore, their support is online only (no phone support at all), so if you are having any connectivity issues of your own, you're out of luck. I have had dreadful experiences with their support, but I'll try to be as nice as I can here: they obviously have a set approach they are supposed to present to customers. It's not always helpful to the customer. It _is_ always helpful to SiteGround.
I suggest you find another hosting company.
I have been using Siteground for a few weeks and love it. I'm new to wordpress but have been working hard to learn it. When I have questions I feel completely lost and for a moment don't know where to turn. Sometimes I figure it out, but when I can't I have tried the chat option. The people at Siteground have helped me every time I turned to them, even when my question turns out to be more of the workings of wordpress then Siteground. They have answered my questions and sent me links for more information on whatever I'm asking. I would highly recommend hosting with Siteground and am so glad I found them!
Hi, I am sorry I have no rocks/sucks to disscuss with you. I have been for 6 months with Siteground and I just wanted to thank you for your great support services. I hope I can upgrade to new services soon!
I am super grateful to the Sales Support team.
Instant response on Chat, they stayed online with me for an hour and a half to answer all of my questions, and not once did I feel like they were wanting to get rid of me. They understood my questions and situation and were able to find me exactly what I needed.
I had a problem with the 404 on my site, but the assistance is managed now to solve the problem. Great!
Fast response: Even with 26 listed on the live chat the response time is under a minute. Got question taken care of fast. Same for phone assistance. Fast and to the point.
Siteground provides excellent value and services for very reasonable prices. The support is second to none.
Chat operators (support staff, I contacted them for technical problem and administrative question) always nice and usefull! And I contacted them late at night (11.30 p.m and 10.30 p.m.) without problem.
Knowledgeable support staff
Polite and effective.
I tell people about Siteground
Finding a hosting company is very difficult. It is not just doing a quick search and going to the review sites and just picking what the reviewer picks. You have to realize that they may be into giving a company a high reviews because they are being paid by the company by either an affiliate program or some other means. I am a computer analyst so I dug into the source code on a few review sites to find out some of them were doing this. The other thing we need to do is find out if they belong to EIG (The Endurance International Group ) you can read into this yourself. From there you have to read the TOS (Terms of Service) to make sure your site will pass and not abuse any of their Terms. Anyways after about 8 hours of digging I have chosen only one hosting site that meets my needs. The winner is Siteground. Thank you for the added help in the chat
Great support indeed, very fast and accurate! The only problem was with sometimes getting a 500 error while editing the contents of the WordPress site, but other than that - nothing was bothering me
Time and time again I am impressed with the above and beyond attitude of the Siteground customer service team. It is refreshing to encounter the "can do" attitude. I will recommend them time and time again. VERY impressed. You can't beat the quality of service, customer service or their pricing. Kudos Siteground, keep up the good work.
As someone who has never set-up a website or domain, I have been very happy with the support and help from Siteground. I am glad I have registered with them.
Knowledgeable staff, fast resolution and matters are resolved quickly. I like the fact that when you call or chat someone is there to help, and the escalate feature is wonderful.
SiteGround is everything I have been looking for and the customer service is fast and great! Best customer service of any hosting company I have used in the last 10 years.
Quick, thorough and professional. All my questions were answered and now I can move ahead with my site.
As someone who researches what I need very thoroughly while needing a lot of help in the technology department, I am absolutely amazed at the value and customer service offered by SiteGround. Anyone looking at their site http://www.siteground.com/web-hosting.htm can see that the product itself offers all you need to run a full-feature, reliable and highly secure website for an incredibly reasonable cost (especially with the current specials they are offering).
As important as the product itself is, the quality of customer service is what makes the ultimate difference to me. And I am not exaggerating when I say that these people offer astoundingly helpful customer service. Easily reachable by phone, chat or email, the quality of responsiveness far (and I mean far) surpasses the customer service of any other web hosting company I have checked out in my comprehensive research for the best web hosting company out there.
So if you want to know that you are receiving the best product for the best value from a team of real people that relate to you like a real person, SiteGround is my personal recommendation. And I know this review may seem over the top, but I just have to share my incredibly positive experience. I have absolutely no affiliation with SiteGround - am just a truly impressed, satisfied customer.
I think it's the best techinal support i've ever tryed, little price for a great support. chat, and upper support, really great.
also the newsletter with incredibile advice!
absolutly to try!!
I have been designing websites for over 10 years. In this time I have had many hosting companies. I currently am with a company that uses a Aligator for a logo and they are slow to respond etc. I moved one site to siteground early in the year and now have 10 sites and moving another 40 plus as they come to renewal.
They are fast to respond, and help as much as they can. I am 100% happy and highly recommend.
Thanks site ground.
Moved from another host due to the exceptional wordpress support and features. I have not been disappointed! Thank you. So much better than my previous hosts.
Siteground rocks as far as I'm concerned, especially their Customer Service Reps! No matter what my problem, they address it and treat me with respect. They also talk to me as if I had an actual brain in my head. So many other site support don't do that and I leave with the problem unsolved. That has never happened with Siteground. I will recommend them to anyone looking for a good hosting service!
I just switched from a competitor. This is the best support I have ever experienced!!! I get instance response and the site transfer service is fast!! Great, great, great, is all I can say.
I was just on a chat with Dora A. Let me tell you, this gal was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the service that you offer and didn't skip a beat with all the questions I asked her. It is so rare to find support like this. I almost felt as though I was dreaming or that this could not be real. It was a great pleasure to get all of my questions answered without feeling pressured to hurry up and get off of the chat.
I will be recommending SiteGround to all of my customers, without a doubt. You guys are the best.
I have been using siteground for year now and they have always been great to work with. Support is good, always responsive. Only down side is login frustration with upsell and cross sell and very small button to continue to your account. Also the billing process has some work to do... not very intuitive. Generally though Siteground is excellent value and solid support.
Never use this company!!
They don't have a support team and resell services on behalf another company.
We have wordpress setup on there go geek solution which was ok for a few weeks until we started implementing a CDN with cloudflare. This went disastoruly wrong with the site being down for about a week.
The only way to talk to someone technical was via support tickets, despite requests to call back to go through the issue this never happened, and there short un-helpfull responses blaming everyone else just prolonged the issue being resolved as well as them taking 24hrs to get back to each ticket.
The issue finally resolved itself with no explanation as to what was up, no apology and no gesture of good will for the down time or bad service.
We have lost lots of money and the loyalty of a customer who now thinks of us as incompetent due to this company.
Whilt we able to move past this issue we are now, a week later, experiencing more problems. We have been trying to enable the cache features within the system. These work for about 12 hrs then magically turn themselves off from site grounds C Panel.
Again have contacted support only to get an response blaming us for this issues telling us they have turned it back on and the site is loading fine, only for the same thing to happen over and over again.
Complaint emails don't get answered, requests for the name of the legal representative of the company are refused and a request for a refund so that we can go to a solution that doesn't cause issues, with a contacttable support team were laughed off with a response about us using them for over a month,
If you appreciate your sanity never use this company, you will end up wasting hours of your time, getting a second rate service and potentially lose a lot of customers or missed business.
I take care of my own businesses sites, havve them all in WordPress and I'm very satisfied with SiteGround's services, particularly their support, that's quick and responsive! Thanks, be taking a virtual server, my next step!
Siteground is awesome because of a simple reason, support 24/7 and they are always spot on when it comes to problem solving. Doesn't matter if it is CMS, domain or even CSS related they are enough savvy to help and get things done.
What i have noticed is that when you buy a new domain it takes time (from 12 hours to 48 hours) to become available to use. Unless you talk with the Support staff and they will help you right away.
We run a software development company, and recently moved from a VPS on a powerful host to Siteground. We were initially sceptical about the move as we could not afford to have any downtime or speed of the site going down. But after having gone through the features of the GoGeek hosting plan, i was atleast convinced on paper that Siteground would certainly suite me needs. Then came the real set of surprises.
The Staging server that SiteGround has in GoGeek hosting is a real saver of time and effort. Earlier we used to get our site down while doing migration activities or major design change. But the concept of staging server really ensured that there was no down time at all, when we did a major design change of our site for about 2 weeks.
The support team at siteground is awesome. Every ticket that we created was answered in 10-15 minutes to full satisfaction. The ability to use GIT on Siteground server for our website is also a cool feature. They really have explored various options to keep the site up and running smoothly for all. Their super cacher and various other technologies integrations for caching has helped our site to a great extent.
And finally the price - The price is extremely competitive and we are extremely satisfied to host our business website with SiteGround.
Support eccellent! All person are very kind and professional. The service is very speed and is the best i tried. I'm happy about siteground
I pay a fair bit for my site. Been with them for years, and they offer virtually no support. The tickets for support have been two in four years, so it's not like I'm a pain if you know what I mean. I will be switching over to another provider. They are great if you just start with them, but when they have you in the bag they will not lift a finger. I am a small business, and small traffic with a simple interface site. The small glitch I have is so minor, but technically is not their fault. However some of the reviews stated they will go out of the normal. Not so!!!
I have used SiteGround for nearly a year.
What drew them to me, initially, was the need for a really inexpensive, temporary "parking place" for a developmental site.
A few times along the way I needed support.
Before my first tech support interaction I couldn't help but think, "Oh great... you looked for a really competitively priced host, how long do you think the wait is going to be, how bad do you think the support is going to be, how many times do you think you are going to have to contact support to finally get the issue resolved...?"
To my surprise the provided support as good, if not even better, than the company from which we have been renting a dedicated server (for over $1200 annually)!
It was fast, efficient, on target and I literally "walked away" from that interaction in under five minutes, total, with the issue completely resolved.
I was stunned (but, I also somewhat thought, "I got really lucky on this first support interaction. I wonder how good it will be the next time?"
But, I was wrong to have those thoughts.
Every time I have needed help (which, as an aside, have all been for "issues" I either created on my own, or simply were things I needed to do and didn't take the time to do the homework on their knowledge base, never because the site wasn't working properly as a result of some failure on their part) the interaction has been exactly the same, fast, efficient, thorough and great.
Today I needed to do something and when I clicked on "live chat" on their support site, I saw I was 5th in line for support.
Despite how great their service had been in the past, I thought, "Great, how long is this going to take at 5am?" (unfair and unwarranted, I know, given how great their service had been in the past, but "early morning" human nature to think that sort of thing.)
Not more than 45 seconds later "Stanislav" was on the chat, understood exactly what I was looking for and, once again, within 5 minutes time he completely answered my questions, the resolution was implemented and I was on my way to the kitchen to make some coffee and revel in my early Saturday morning successful resolution of an issue I thought would consume a good part of my morning.
If it isn't already clear from my detailed report of my interactions with SiteGround, I highly recommend them.

I've been with Siteground since 2006 and have hosted about 15 sites with them over the years. I've played around with other hosts, but Siteground is the best. The quality of customer support is exceptional -- with response times far exceeding other providers.
siteground service is awesome and it's technical support is so good and respond to problem very quickly.
siteground is awesome.
Wonderful helpdesk, absolutely stunning. I have made use of a lot of hosted companies but nothing compare to Siteground. Absolutely recommended, don't make the mistake to choose another business for hosting your website, you will regret it, guaranteed.
Choosing Siteground was the right decision I made for hosting and I am so happy about it. The first thing that I ever required was a nice support system which Siteground clearly have it. Its hosting plans are great and in the budget for starters like myself. Unlimited sub-domains, and Unlimited bandwidth are the blessings that comes with just the basic plan.
Prompt service on LiveChat but when I asked whether it was best to wait until mid-February before transferring from GoDaddy to SiteGround, I was told to transfer now rather than wait - despite the fact I highlighted that, surely, I would be better off waiting as I'd end up wasting the hosting I'd paid for with GD. I use SG a lot (for clients) because it's such great value for money but I don't appreciate being sold a solution that clearly isn't in my best interests for another two months. Don't be so keen to close a sale - you will get the business so long as you give the best advice along with the best value for money. Good business is built by giving good advice - even if it means delaying a sale by a few months. Try that sales trick on me again and I will see another web hosting solution.
Although not the cheapest hosting provider around, these guy provide outstanding tech support. And when I mean outstanding I mean they'll even help you fix some web developpement stuff that most hosting services would leave up to the client to fix.
Totally recommend it, you won't be wasting your money on this one.
Siteground SUCKS because they line-item charge for everything! They hide your email files away from your access and then charge you to get a backup of them. If you want to find out if they offer custom development services, they charge $50 just to give you a quote! Just to say "No we don't have Magento programmer available." That'll be $50. I am hosting nearly 40 websites on another host for the cost of TWO websites on SiteGround -- with good uptime and PHENOMENAL FREE support! I just feel so upset whenever I try to do anything with this company--their number one focus is profit.
This is one of my current hosting provider and although it is a bit costly, initially they provide a discount, their services are excellent and their support is great. Their server uptime is great as well :) Truly love them
I got on to live chat and ask how to program my phone to receive emails.Your support failed to provide an email telling me how to receive emails to my Samsung Android phone. Yes, you suck.
You don't deserve a single star.
Siteground did a great job of setting up a shopping cart and I have had a year of no down time. The support people have been very friendly and helpful. Thanks Siteground and your crew.
I have been hosting all my websites on Siteground for quite some time time. Never had any issues unlike my previous hosting providers. Customer support is great, server speed is excellent and server uptime is really good too. Great value for money.
I went from an other hosting provider in the US after more than 15 years to Siteground, I love the system and the people, very helpful and easy to deal. They are fast on the chat and solve each time the question fast and perfect. Extremely friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work.
Siteground was recommended to me by a website designer. His reason, "They have all the capability you could ever want, and you can actually talk with someone if you have problems."
My friend was right.
I'm really new to this kind of Internet thing or even domain registering. But from the information I collected from my friend who is quite a pro in this field, many of the features you provided are very sophisticated. I ask my friend to help me look to siteground's website to see what kind of features I can have for any package and after browsing through for a while he constantly said to me to go ahead with my registration because he said siteground has basically offered everything for a good domain hosting. So I think yes I have a good first impression about what siteground has to offer. One feature that I've tried myself is the online chat service and I really love to chat with siteground' support team because they are just kind and very helpful in handling any request or answering questions.
Well Up-time is 100% (so far), whenever I needed help you always were there for my questions and answered to them with solutions.. Thank you Guys!! Keep up the good work!
i have tried till now Arvixe shared (very good), Amazon s3 (the worst) and media temple grid, and this is the best so far in terms of support speed and variety of tools.
I think its the fastest support i have hit yet. worth the money, period.
Best all around hosting -- and when you think it cant get any better you talk to the support team! A+
Worst Hosting provider ever. We have transferred one account to SiteGround few months ago, and now, we are trying to go as soon as possible. Because of some pick limits match (such as CPU resource) support have suspended our account?! I never heard user experience like this!
They have been excellent in supporting me in transferring my site from Yahoo. Friendly, accessible, knowledgeable, supportive and most of all available when I need them either online or on the phone. Just what I wanted.
Siteground has taken my fear of web hosting out of the equation. Whenever I have a problem, they are quick to help resolve the issue or to teach me what I need to do. Always A+ service.
Siteground is website hosting i am using for a long time. Why? Because they are here to support you in resolving any problem in any time of day or night.
I was excited to start with these guys. But for some reason my site had more data than I had thought and they told me that I would have to go to the really expensive plan so I canceled and the full refund policy didn't include everything, So I'm not actually getting a full refund as they claim. I found people I'm much happier with and about a third of the price. I also didn't like the customer service. They don't listen well, and they also talk over you if you are not incredibly aggressive about being heard, and just want a normal civil conversation. So I feel their advertisement is somewhat dishonest, that they are overpriced, and that their customer service isn't really great customer service. I'm very sorry because I wanted to like them. I had heard nothing but good things
Wow I am actually impressed, very well prepared support. Fast, Responsive & functional.
Admin Are Is very straight forward, with very nice features like cache, backups & restores.
Am glad to have made the decision to use siteground. I cant fault them in any way thou there is always room for improvement. One of my memorable moments from them was when they arranged a webinar for us regarding security and how to secure our website even further on top of the security they are already providing. It's one of those rear things from hosting providers but I did learn a lot personally.
Siteground, you ROCK!!
Siteground is the best hosting service solution I've ever used, the support, the features, the platfrom and everything is just amazing. Thank you
I like the support at Siteground. Every support staff is very knowledgeable and quick. Response time is what matters to me the most and that's what Siteground excels at.
This marks my seventh year with Siteground. I just came up with an issue and the support team went above and beyond what I was expecting. I figured that they would point me in the direction to fix my issue, they were very helpful told me where the problem was and fixed the problem. All of the support was dealt with within 30 minutes and this was not an easy issue to solve. Anytime I have had a problem with my hosting or website support has me up and running within 30 minutes. I am very impressed with Siteground. I moved to Siteground because of support issues with my last provider and I am so glad that I did. SIteground hosts 8 of my 9 websites and I recommend them to anyone looking for hosting.
I tried many hosting services and i found in Siteground my favorite one. The excellent features and special mention to their efficient, ultra-fast and comprehensive technical support. Five stars to the live chat service!
Im a Web Developer and I've used many Hosting Providers, and one thing I've learned during all this time: Problems are unavoidable and What a Web Developer appreciates the most is a group of professionals willing to help exactly in the moment when a problem comes out. I've been using SiteGround and it's exactly what I was looking for. The support is great, uptime is just wonderful. It's simply great. Thanks a lot SiteGround.
Besides a service that is always tops, their support is simply the best. Staff are well trained and always give their best to have a problem resolved in the shortest time possible!! Well done Siteground! Keep up the good service!
Unbelievable support - They answer within minutes, i have used so many hosts in the past and none come close to siteground.
The best thing I'm experiencing with Siteground is their service.
This guys are there 24/7 so I can ask for some info, or for deep hard tech help and they show up with a smile and help me.
I'm an Entrepreneur Starting up an eCommerce Planform and chose Siteground as my hosting provider because they are ready to work with my business.
Niko was great to work with. Very educated on SG tools and where to go. Quickly navigated within system to set up new domain. Very please. Great work.
It's seldom that reality exceeds a company's marketing hype... but you guys really make it happen... my problem was solved in less than 8 minutes... Thank you!
I've been freelance graphic designer/ web developer for the last 3 years. So I know the basics of web hosting, but I'm definitely no pro. All the web projects I've done have been on the smaller side- custom Wordpress websites, etc. All these smaller sites only need shared hosting plans on smaller servers. With my most recent project, I took a big step up doing a large scale eCommerce website for the first time using Magento. So when starting this project the first thing I knew was that I was going to need a much larger scale hosting provider that could grow with my new company and help with anything technical I was uncertain how to handle. After a couple hours of research, my team decided to go with Site Ground and I really can't be happier. After months of development we're finally ready to launch! I've probably live chatted with Site Ground a dozen times in the last 4 days. Every time they've helped me practically instantly with any question. Not only that, they caught an error I made in some settings and opened a support ticket for me and had my problem fixed before I even realized it was an issue!
Seriously, this project means a lot to me. And it's really comforting to know I have a hosting provider that can help with everything server side I'm definitely not up to speed on.
Amazing! Not going to change my hosting company no matter what! Chat service which works exemplary, great team, awesome packages which work great even with Magento. You will not be disappointed.
I'm on their "Go Geek" plan that includes a few extras like "less people on servers", "PCI Compliance" and "Advanced Hardware". So far I've experienced consistently great response times with my WordPress sites. Siteground appears to specialize in WordPress and include a few handy features such an automated administrator password reset.
I like the service so well that I'm weighing a partnership with Siteground as their cPanel based enhanced features make management easy, the performance is amazing and the support near instantaneous. So far, I'm comfortable recommending them to my clients.
Best Customer Support Ever
i had few problems regarding domain setting and domain changes.
One of the Customer Support named Dessy helped me with big care to the point that every single problems have been solved.
I am sooo much satisfied with the support i received and wanted to share this great experience.
Considering the price they offer, probably one of the best host server in the world.
Thanks very much for the big help today ^^
Siteground support is absolutely great. After a few minutes from opening a ticket the problem is solved! In Italy we have many hosting services but we decided to get Siteground's and I must say that this was an excellent choice.
I've said this many many times. Siteground rock. I just had a site that I was attacked by spambots and they worked with me to fix it in no time. Again, they are not the cheapest but they are very inexpensive - you really get more than you pay for with Siteground.
I switching to siteground after trying a few hosting sites and it was the best decision I've ever made. I have always had prompt response time, little to no down-time, and knowledgeable techs to help answer any questions I have.
I've been a web designer for over 20 years and have dealt with a number of hosting companies for myself and on behalf of my clients, Siteground so far has hands down the most excellent support and customer service I've ever seen. I fully intend to migrate the rest of my sites here as well as recommend them to my new clients and suggest them to the old clients who are unhappy with their hosting services.
I am a webmaster and I have about 12 different clients with siteground so I deal with them a lot here are my observations:
1. Technical support for wordpress and magento is very good and fast.
2. Their shared hosting works very well, their servers also work fine, their VPS seems to have a lot of downtime so I no longer use them for VPS, just dedicated or shared. Also their VPS has no access to many root tools, like restarting services.
3. Every few months they do changes in the middle of the day, US time, causing the server to go down and despite me asking for them to no longer do this it still happens. This is frustrating if you are running a store where 1/2 hour can cost you money.
4. They don't have an uptime guarantee
In summary I would recommend and use Siteground for regular wordpress websites and Magento websites as long as you use shared hosting or a dedicated server. If you need a VPS or a 100% uptime guarantee I would not recommend Siteground.
Siteground is much like other hosting providers - however, they provide a range of things on top of the normal delivery which set them apart.
I have had to use their Support team at all times of the day or night, usually because of something I did wrong. They have never let me down, have always responded within 15 minutes, usually much faster, and always with courtesy, understanding and clear technical advice; in fact, they often tell me how to fix the problem and then add that they've also already done it for me!
This, in addition to Wordpress staging facilities, well-appointed CPanel, excellent up time, good communication and good prices. I use them for everything!
When I opened my Joomla website hosted by Siteground I found a new version was available but I was unable to update. Our technical representative at Sitground was fast, effective and informative. We are very pleased with this service experience.
I am very happy with SiteGround. I have been looking for a hosting solution for years and happened upon SiteGround about a year ago. I can now host multiple sites and not worry about down time. I feel confident that my client's sites are secure. The technical support rocks. I have used their tech support periodically throughout the year. Mostly for installation instructions and add-on instructions. They have always been knowledgeable, friendly, and politely supportive.
This is the best hosting company I've ever used. Great prices, al the options and great support. Highly recommended.
Siteground was recommended by SimplerWebs! SimplerWebs explained to me, in detail, about each hosting package, features and support! I am glad I went with SimplerWebs as my web design and SEO company, and Siteground as my hosting company!
I've been with Siteground since its inception over a decade ago. I came back to use their services for a reason.. they're fantastic!
Siteground Rocks!.....i've never had a downtime since i started using them.....their customer service is off the charts! really really great and friendly! i always feel much better after talking to siteground representatives......they have really flexible hosting plans which are quite cash friendly [ if u know what i mean ;) ].....Thanks Siteground! U guys are simply the best!
Their support is very good, I am very grateful, are the best, many, many congratulations tanks you. Rewards
I just had a great support chat from Ivan from Siteground. I tried to understand better the Reseller Program and we figured oput I definately could take advatage from it. He worked it all out and made me a reseller in no time. Professional and very positive. Thanks. Siteground just Rocks, period.
The customer service has a quick and accurate response to any technical issue. The uptime is unbeattable! I'm glad for choosing Siteground as my hosting provider.
I like the level of information available on the site and all the options. The live Chat support has been consistently good, but I REALLY like all the information available, especially how specific it can get, i.e. Joomla! how to...
Siteground makes me feel very safe and very lucky that i choose them as my hosting provider.
Their support is always there to solve my problems almost instantly.
It's awesome ! Very good support and very good uptime. I recommend for all users who are seeking a good host, as I was. Until siteground, I tried 6 different hosts and I was not pleased by none of them.
So far i have had NO issues with the service. Quick Setup was amazing.
The support from the customer experience staff was undeniably the best, they were prepared for every question i had.
The price is right for the buck as well.
Looking forward a long and tight relationship Siteground.
Let's Do IT.
i was beed in Bluehost and the website was slow !!
so i moved to Siteground and the service was fast !!!! and also perfect and very kind
Siteground are excellent. Their support is second to none. Their services are great, and if you use Joomla like I do they know everything there is to know.
If you're thinking about going to one of the cheap hosts, DON'T. You'll regret not having the help and support that Siteground give you, and for a pound or so a week for the hosting it's fantastic value. What more can I say.
Siteground are the best! Used a couple of other hosts prior to Siteground, problems with other hosts were too much downtime, poor customer support and worst of all the servers got hacked. I have been with Siteground for 6 months - they are amazing. Customer Service is fantastic, fast ticket response (almost immediate) with real answers, the online chat is great too. I haven't had any downtime or security issues with Siteground. The cost is a fraction of what I have paid before and yet the service is a million times better, especially all of the inclusions with your package, the Joomla tutorials are great too. I signed up with Siteground from information on BuildAJoomlaWebsite.com it was the best move ever and I have already recommended to 2 other businesses. AND no, I'm not employed or affiliated with Siteground OR BuildAJoomlaWebsite - I'm just a very happy customer!
Siteground does rock. I had serious need for a change of web hosts and found Siteground. Kamen in sales was very helpful and even offered to paste some code on my WP directory if needed. It wasn't needed in that Siteground's magic cPanel did it right. The technical support team were awesome in helping me get going even though many of my concerns were my lack of understanding or impatience. I feel like I'm up on top now and experiencing NO problems. When it was necessary for Siteground to move my server they were very reassuring and the migration went flawlessly. They keep you informred about what is going on. There prices are fair and competitive and if they keep them there they'll probably have more customers than they can handle. The only problem I currently have is NO reason to communicate with them. I miss them a bit.

The siteground team has been great! The site support especially. I cannot say much other than they deliver on what they say which should say enough.
If you use CMS Joomla or WordPress as your website platform. I highly recommend Siteground. Super fast support and easy setup tools for Joomla and WordPress.
We tried out Siteground for two purposes: WordPress development site, and a volunteer-oriented database & applications suite using Perl and MySQL, using the GoGeek premium shared hosting package to get more web space and cpu. The applications suite worked, with minimal adjustments, and initially, WordPress trial installs for development worked too. The support was OK, like other sites, some knowledgable support reps, others not so great, about average.
We thought we had found a good hosting company to switch to, but then we hit a stopper: they throtttle FTP - severely! We were trying to upload a WP site backup from another site, and realized it was going very slowly. We checked with support and they confirmed that they throttle inbound FTP transfers down to 100 KB or so. If you don't have to upload files bigger than a few megabytes, it would not be an issue, but we needed to upload a multi-gigabyte file, and it would have taken all day! So we cancelled the account immediately, and got our money back.
I have been very happy with the prompt service and helpful advice. Staff explained things carefully and made sure I was happy with their help. thank you.
Siteground is a great hosting company, my website www.muhato.com which is an magento base and it is hard to install. However, siteground staffs helps me step to step, even creating sub-domain for it. Especially, their support is really fast. I'm very happy with it.
Best rates for excellent service. The customer support is beyond awesome! I have tried most hosts but Siteground is truly one of a kind.
I have dementia making every thing harder for me.
However with the patience and help from support was able to have my site up and working in no time
I found the instructions and guidance provided by the customer service professionals to be clear and concise. Their English language skills are impeccable.
Whenever anyone asks for a domain registrar/website hosting company I always recommend they visit siteground.com. I have never seen any down time, the customer service is excellent, and I haven't found a better price anywhere.
great features and platform, outstanding support.... i have looked back at a bunch of tickets i filed with them on various subjects and i could not find one where the response time was more then 10 minutes ..... every problem, even the self inflicted ones, have been taken care of !!! their server configuration is second to none. These guys (and girls) know what they are doing !!!
I am using wordpress for my client's websites and recently recommended to two of my clients Siteground as their hosting provider. I have to say that Siteground is far the best hosting company I ever used. The sites are working very well and the support is great. Every problem I had was solved within a few minutes. In the future I will recommend Siteground to all of my clients because I think you can't get better value for that money! When my own domain expires I will come on board as well.
I cant speak highly eough of the folks at Siteground. Always very helpful. Great service and good value. I have been with siteground for over 7 years and have always been really happy with the service and the products. Kind regards. Adrian McGivern. AutoGateIreland.com
I've just discovered that my website had disappeared! was not loading/couldn't find the site via Google search.
I went straight to SiteGround's member login area, and clicked through for an online consultation with a technician. In a matter of seconds I had a person to 'speak' with who was warm, welcoming and personable.
Dessy was quick, clear and helpful. She found what the issue was, and the matter had a solution minutes later. This problem related to an expired domain (with another source).
Among the multitude of shoddy web "service" providers who seem only interested in signing people up and squeezing as much money from them as possible, it's pure relief to find SiteGround where 'service' isn't an optional extra.
I recommend SiteGround highest for your warm and welcoming service style that's top-geared for customer service and complete satisfaction. With my limited web skills, your readily available assistance inspires my confidence and my trust.
Thanks so much.
I look after quite a few WordPress websites and have moved them over to SiteGround. Any problem I have had, whether site speed, fixing permissions, technical problems or pre sales they have been answered and resolved very, very quickly. Almost immediately in most cases.
Siteground has to be one of the best web-hosting providers out there. Always super-helpful where they can and since moving a couple of sites over have found and fixed problems I never knew I had.
Their Joomla auto-updating is a breeze and the one place where other service providers let themselves down is support. For Siteground it is the place where they often excel. Always available and more often than not you get somebody who will go that extra mile for you.
They now have 2 of my websites and I will be moving a third one over next month from a webhost I have been with for 17 years, their service is that good.
I fing love siteground. No joke. best hosting for startups they kill it in support. But dont let it go to your head siteground im saying this so you never stop being the best in support
I have used joomla to build 6 sites five were with Blue Host and one was with you. I have to say that you are the best host of joomla sites and I am moving the rest over to Siteground. You are very helpful, your support is excellent and there is no comparison - you beat the rest! Thanks for the hosting!
SiteGround are brilliant! I have only been with them a short while but the support is amazing, I dont know how they do it. I have yet to have a question that they have not been able to answer for me so that I can get my store working exactly how I want. I think they know everything, maybe i should ask them for the next lottery numbers!! If you are thinking about using them then do, you wont find any other company that comes close to them and the prices they charge are also very cheap for what you get.
I've been hosting with siteground for 8 years, and moved over from iPowerWeb which was terrible. I hated them iPowerWeb.
My only gripe against Siteground was when they did not have Live Chat. Apart from that all their services were/are excellent. Once they introduced Live Chat, it has been a pleasure to work with siteground. I don't see many reviews of siteground on the internet, but it doesn't mean they are not good. Their Live Chat is a super service and extremely good. Everything gets answered promptly. This alone makes Siteground a host worth considering.
I recently set up an Asian customer's web services at Siteground's Singapore hosting facility. Everything good so far, except for one time when the email was down for a few hours. Apart from that no complaints.
I recommend Siteground to anyone who can afford their 9.95/month fee, or 30% off for 3 years hosting. It's difficult to beat their customer service.
I am new to Siteground and started off using their Shared Hosting plan to set up our Magento store. The tech support has been excellent and helping us migrate our site across. Fast responses and very helpful! Love the caching features included in the plan, just makes our site run noticeably faster compared to our last web hosting! Although we couldn't get our site to work properly due to the need to tweak some MySQL settings (which we are not allowed to on Shared Plans), we have decided to keep using Siteground for all our other domains but host our Magento store somewhere else. It's a pity as we'd love to be able to host our Magento store with Siteground too, but the only option was to sign up for a Cloud account, however, we don't need all that power... yet. A very customer so far :-)
I have used Siteground for a couple of years now for various projects and can honestly say I never contemplate using anybody else. The support is amazing - not just as a hosting company but as a company full stop! A big thank you for your help over the years, here's to plenty more to come.
Very, VERY satisfied indeed.
Having been through Go-Daddy, HostMonster, 1and1, 123-reg & the rest you see advertised everywhere, I'm able to confirm SiteGround have without doubt the most helpful, fastest, and most importantly - HANDS-ON Support of any I've tried.
We're only a small company, so I take care of most website requirements personally. Needless to say I'm no expert, fumble my way through most things, succeeding only by spending hours learning from my mistakes...
Others will bog you down with a load of technical terms, wasting time while you figure out what they mean? Not SiteGround Support, you raise a ticket, they'll have a look and if possible, perform the necessary alterations for you. Fantastic!! It saves you time & patience, saves them time in explanation, everybody's happy and in all honesty - it's so refreshing to witness their practical, down-to-earth approach.
SiteGround, no-nonsense, no BS, plain-English, easily understood. Just...great to work with.
i start with them mid of MAY with GO GEEK plan which is highest share server plan they have and cost 29.95$,
till end of JUL i finish customizing my theme on wordpress and first of AUG i asked my users to move to new Site which is hosted by Site Ground .
till 7th AUG , 88 users signed up and Site Ground blocked my site for CPU usage , only after 7 days !!!
My previous site was hosted by Arvixe which still active on Shared plan as well for more than 1.5 year . only for 4$ !!
site ground mentioned i reached high bandwidth usage which it was 1GB in 7 days ,
my site in Arvixe in 7 days used average is 8GB ( i have more than 900 users there )
Site Ground mentioned one of my page HIT 20 thousand times and this is main cause of shutdown !!
in my site on Arvixe my Index page HIT 1 million and 299 thousand times in same period and site still working .
Both numbers collected by AWSTATS ( i wish i could attache a image here )
the only Solution, Site Ground gave me to upgrade to Cloud plan which all of us know the game of Hosting company to push users to pay more
im moving my new site from SitegGround to Arvixe with VPS plan which still much stronger than SG Cloud Plan.
Site Ground has excellent customer service and very useful tools to handle the wordpress website and that exactly fooled me to join them and pay more than 150$ for hosting plan and other services .
. my advise is if you have only site with one page and no user registration , no java or html usage , no image or graphic uploading , no fancy theme ( theme should be super simple wordpress theme ) you can go for SITE GROUND
I'm very pleased with SiteGrounds total service and reccomend my customers use them. I know they will be well taken care of.
SiteGround is awesome webhosting, simple but advanced, Sharp, hard working, superb support, they are friendly, me i have my friends among site ground support team, people like miroslov, adriana, and other second stage of support team, they are good, better and best i ever had.
They have a great backup staging for hosting package, consultations among problems and so much more, very supportive, less expensive and well organized
Yet again, SiteGround has blown my mind. Incredible support. They don't treat you like your stupid and Gabriela actually made me feel like she cares. Thank you times one million. You all rock?
I think SiteGround rocks because since day one, I have been able to receive almost instantaneous support for all sorts of questions that I had.
Siteground is a very reliable hosting company. Its 24/24/365 assistance is very fast and accurate and useful especially for small companies who don't have a strong IT teams.
Servers are very fast and their server farms are spread in all over the world. For this reason it is a server solution adapt for European Companies who want to go beyond their national market and gain all the european market with fast servers and reduced latency times.
The Good: Shared Hosting Plan prices seem in line with other hosting companies. Features appear good. I was a long time GoDaddy customer until they messed with the ability to use most php or cgi contact form scripts. I purchased the shared hosting plan on the promise by the SiteGround CSR that I wouldn't have any problems with my PHP or CGI "Sendmail" scripts. I am happy to report that I did not have any issues with my scripts and they work flawlessly.
The Bad: So right off, after I placed my order they wanted to do an order verification. I received a call from a guy that sounded Russian and said that in order to process my order I needed to have my client email them a picture of his Driver's License. I felt un-easy with this process. My gut told me not to do it, but I did. After about 20 minutes of him doing whatever he needed to do to verify everything, he finally said that the hosting account was setup. My second run with tech support was when I needed to know the absolute path to my new hosting account. Such as (/home/www/public_html). The tech support had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. She kept saying that my path was my domain name. What??? Anyways, I found my answer in the support section. So for future reference for anyone else needing this info, the absolute path is /home/USERNAME/public_html/
"Rubbish" in nutshell. I have several technical issues with them just for building a Word Press website for my client.There support is just a joke. Whatever ticket you submit always they ignore it by saying " It is all fine from our end" then they close your ticket without asking for your feedback. They have wasted 5 hours of my time on a query by ignoring it then they found that this is due to miss-configuration on the Apache server!
Their services are not reliable and robust and there support team approach is ignorance. Do not even try to call them, you will find their agents rude and unprofessional who are not really bothered with your query.
Do not get foll but the pricing, avoid them if you want to avoid hassle
Good hosting company. Customer support are very kind and tickets are answered extremely fast.
Every I've ran into was solved quickly and without any hassles on my end. They also were more then happy to help when someone of my questions (when starting up) were out of pure lack of knowledge or not exactly related to the hosting services.
No complaints, only recommendations :)
I just had an amazing service provided by your online support. Mrs. Dessy.
Precise and swift support. She has handled all my requests in seconds without any hesitation. Just wonderful!
Ivan was super helpful and knowledgeable in my decision to go with Siteground hosting. He was very friendly and courteous as well as patient.
Extremely quick and sharp support staff. A true knowledge of the products they support and a clear desire to integrate those products into the systems they operate.
When I look back over the service I have received from Siteground I have come to realize that they have consistently offered very good value for money. As a user of internet sites you kind of expect poor and disappointing service, so you prepare your self subconsciously for that disappointing service.
I just had an experience with one of their reps called Diana and afterward I realized that her good service was in fact what I had for most of the time been getting from siteground. There have been 1 or 2 unsatisfactory encounters but they pale into insignificance when I reflect on my generally good experience.
So, well done Siteground
First of all, I don't know why you can not write on their FB page. Maybe they are afraid of negative reviews? Anyway..I just recently signed up and I feel like I got tricked into going for Go Geek plan by their pre sales team. They told me that I will get freebies like SSL and CloudfareCDN which I did get but both can not work together. SSL ONLY works with Cloudfare Plus account which is paid. If I activate cloudfare for my site then SSL won't work. This was NOT mentioned before sign up and is not mentioned anywhere on their website before signing up. I chatted with someone from their CSR team and simply asked him to at least mention this point so that future customers can be aware of this fine print, he refused to accept it was a fault on their part and got a bit aggressive and rude while chatting. Not what I expected especially after reading such good reviews before signing up!
I'm new at siteground and am very impressed. Thus far their support is superior to any other U.s. Based hosting service I've used. I would recommend siteground to any serious joomla webmaster. You will find a plethora of useful tools in siteground's cpanel. The best part of it is: it just works!
I have over 5 years with Siteground and it has always been my favorite hosting service.... =D love it!
Really i'm still surprised by your kindness, knowedge and quick answering! thk u from France siteground!
I used to work in the IT industry in the UK but I have NEVER seen, or received, such fantastic support as I have had from Siteground - both pre-Sales and Technical Support after I migrated a website to them. I have only had our website hosted by Siteground for just over 2 months, so it's early days yet, but I don't think I will be disappointed and I have taken a 3 year period with them for web hosting. Siteground truly is an AMAZING company
First day. Started with a bunch of questions to sales. They answered everyone without hesitation even the technical ones (such PHP Magic_Quotes and are my Global Variables safe on a shared server). They answered in detail and reassured me enough to ask the wife if she would like a free domain (siteground offers this), I have lots of domains already registered all over the place. Less than an hour later I was back and signing up. I was anxious that the 50% cost would be for just the 1st month (as with other hosts I checked). Amazingling if you don't mind paying in advance you can have 3 years hosting at 50% off. I opted for 2 years without hesitation. I had my wife setup with a joomla site within 10 minutes. Later in the day I thought about my spare domain names that I would like to be hosted and needed to get them setup with the correct DNS settings. I found myself not sure what steps to take as I have been a PLESK user for 10 years + and never been near CPanel. I got stuck several times. Every time I chatted with support and they patiently sorted me out.
Cannot praise them enough. I could fill pages with what I believe they are about to solve for me compared to my existing host packages with two other companies. Just the fact they offer daily backups as part of the deal! Also I actually read the legal stuff about what they offer. It is a bit technical for sure but very fair sounding .
So end of first day feeling optimistic about the next two years and even thinking after testing the shared package. That I will move my dedicated server over to them in the not too distant future.
Siteground's support is without a doubt the most knowledgeable, fastest turn-around team we've encountered.
I reckon SiteGround presales service staff absolutely rocks! I'm new to the whole website creation business. Previously i had very little understanding of what was needed. They educated me in the lingo and didn't just throw acronyms at me but ask if i understood. I understand now and I understand what set them apart. They didn't treat me like a nobody but treated me like a someone who just needed help. As i floundered along the way they told me i was doing ok, when i stated i thought it would be easy they showed me it was as simple as counting one two three. It was. After i signed-up i thought the service would stop there however it didn't they stayed online until i had done everything. I was a bit surprised, i didn't feel like the service bloke on the other end was tearing his hair out (no attitude!), he was quite patience. Now i have transfer my old domain name to SiteGround with the amazing step by step genuine assistance from their staff, installed word press and building my first website. Something i never thought was possible. Thank-you! You give a new meaning to technical support.
Back when I first started out in web design I got stuck using the first popular web host I came across (a disaster). So I did my due diligence when choosing the one I would switch too and went with the one with the least negative reviews. (We all know it's not good judgement to blindly listen to good reviews-often written by the company, so the next best thing is to look for negative ones-the fewer the better). I don't even remember finding any negative reviews for Siteground.
Moving domains presented several issues but each time I submitted a trouble ticket to Siteground it was answered within minutes. Their tech support is top notch! I am so glad I switched to them. If you are considering a web host I definitely recommend Siteground. They offer all the great features of any other host but with the best tech support of any company I have ever dealt with, EVER!
Simply great guys in all aspects, I have been with siteground for over 8 years with 10+ accounts. I can't fault them in any way
Siteground's customer service and technical support is outstanding. I will recommend their hosting services without hesitation. Optimum Exhibits
I recently had an experience where an email within my hosting account had been used by a spammer. Apparently, the email password was maliciously acquired. I was notified within 24 hours of suspect activities by a Siteground representative. I worked with a couple of support techs (named Lubomir Kazakov and Gospodin Pambelov) to resolve the issue. These individuals were wonderful and quite helpful. They answered my questions and provided additional details that I had requested. The response time was amazing and the situation is now be resolved.
To date, any issues that I have had with Siteground have all been handled in a professional, timely and beneficial manner; therefore, Siteground rocks!
I've dealt with many a hosting service, and none compare to Siteground when it comes to customer service. I've recommended all my clients use their hosting site. The others totally pale in comparison, IMHO.
Siteground has the fastest support response time of any host I have ever encountered in 12 plus years in the industry, working with dozens of website hosts.

Almost every time we have had trouble, even during a DDoS attack, we have received prompt technical support. One of the most important services of a server is the kind of technical support provided and SiteGround provides fast and professional support.
I like everything about Siteground, but especially I'm crazy about their customer service/support. I've been online since 1979 and you can imagine how often I've dealt with customer service/support. Siteground's is as good or better than I've ever experienced.
For example, about 30 minutes ago I opened a support ticket with an important question concerning our site. I received an answer in 5 minutes! And that is not untypical.
I'd recommend Siteground to anyone who's looking for a hosting service.
While there are some things that I wish Siteground would do better, overall for the price they offer good services, and good support.
I made the mistake of purchasing 2 domain names thru Site Ground when I purchased hosting from the company. It was too complicated for me to set up my website. I switched hosting to Shopify however Site Ground will not allow me access to the domains A Records since they are not hosting. My recommendation is purely that you should not buy domain names through them.
