Siteground is a remarkable company founded on CUSTOMER SERVICE and QUALITY. Their products are top shelf and I've never worked with a company more eager to serve their customers. They are genuine "servers" (see what I did there?).
I have multiple websites with them and will continue to grow with them as I develop enterprise-level websites. They are a fantastic company, with the best employees I can possible imaging.
I am proud to give them my money. They've earned it, 10 times over!
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.
I held on to the other (brand name) host for years. It was all I knew. I wasn't really happy with them, but was afraid to try something new. SiteGround has more than eased my fears. Even when I make goofy mistakes, support is always professional and fast. Loving it.
After 5 years with Siteground i'm really happy. They always helped me when i had a problem with adding a new domain in the cpnel. They are always happy to help everyone. I just want to give 5 stars for everything. There servers are pretty fast. Some months ago someone hacked my website and they fixed it in less than 1 hours, after this i got access to my website. Thanks Siteground :)
I think its Siteground's employees, what makes Siteground what it is. I'd stick to Siteground until death. Haha. Just humbled by the fact how quick your support team responds. In nearly a year now, I didn't even need to call your phone number. I've always just initiated the Live chat session and your agents fixed issues right then and there. Please keep your services this way only.
To be honest, companies like Hostgator are really screwed up. I switched from Hostgator to Siteground.
With hostgator, I used to get resolution in 1 or 2 weeks. Which really effects the business.
Cheers guys. Just amazed with the fact how quickly your customer service and technical support team responds.
The customer service is outstanding, could answer any question I had while implementing a site for my customer. Often offering further help and getting me on the right track. Website upload time is super fast and globally available due to their cdn and already implemented Let´s encrypt as a free ssl option. Can only recommend their great service to anyone who is building websites to make a living!
Honestly, I can't think of going anywhere else. The support I've received is excellent, the wait times are nonexistent, the instructions and setup for first-timers are clear as day... It's a really great company that genuinely seems focused on providing their customers with truly excellent service. It's not QUITE as cheap as some of the bottom-of-the-barrel hosting solutions – that's not to say it's expensive, just that if you're looking for the absolute cheapest, there's somebody out there that will beat them. But you'll be compromising every other element of your hosting, and their incredible service and support are worth the extra four bucks to me. Can't recommend SiteGround highly enough.
I love the support with SiteGround. There is always someone to talk to on LiveChat. With a previous hosting company I'd email them and have to wait around 24 hours. SiteGround have instant chat with their support people. Its fantastic. They are quick, to the point, friendly and sort any problems out within minutes. Great hosting company.
I needed to pay for all of my domain services and add-on's in one payment. Emil did a fantastic job of creating the order for me and providing a link that had my address prepopulated. I was able to make my payment in less than a minute. Thank you Emil!
I am brand new to this. I have no technical skills and very little understanding of how web hosting worked. The 24 hour support was great and easily walked me thru initial set up. He took the time to ask about my hosting needs and guide me to the services that are perfect for my business website. I feel confident that with the patient, comprehensive support offered, I can manage my business' website. SiteGround Rocks!
I'm a web developer who needs to deal with irreparably hosting companies every day. To my luck I found SiteGround, a serious company that offers a well-balanced between price and quality service. The plans offered are excellent (although at this time I have a plan as) and the prices are quite reasonable. The service is another strong point is this company, answer customer queries promptly and do it in the desired language. No doubt an excellent choice for all web developers seeking tranquility.
When it comes to hosting, Siteground is way up there. If not the best, probably one of the top 3. :) Best support you will ever get. Quick turnaround time, knows their stuff, very professional and friendly. Way better than the previous support I'm getting from my previous hosting. I don't want to mention Hostgator. ;) Keep up the good work, guys. I think I'm at home with my hosting needs. Thank you.

Beside the stunning amount of information and tutorials for the less expert like me, the staff at Siteground set a new standard for customer support. They even called me to provide me with better assistance. Siteground seems to have put a lot of thought in making life easy to the beginners, providing a lot of tools for those who start from zero. I give it 6 stars out of 5.
I have been using Siteground for going on two years and just renewed. During the time I have been with Siteground, my site has had zero downtime. The download speeds are exceptional as is the support. The support staff is top notch and has always solved any issue or question I had within minutes. I found the support chat feature to be the most efficient means of communication. I highly recommend Siteground to anyone looking for a host to solve your current host problems.
We decided to move our Joomla website to SiteGround end 2015 as we had some issues with our former webhosting. And we are simply totally happy with all of their support and service and of course the server :-) I should mention that the they are at your disposal at any time you ask. It is just crazy how the guys are helpful.
You guys are rocking ! Kudos to you. You're great & big thanks to you.
Cheers from Vienna, Austria.
PS. We can't not recommend SiteGround to all the geeks out there. Go for it :-) They are the best.
Alessandro was very pleasant and upbeat during the entire time he helped me. I have never taken the time to write a review for a hosting customer service rep before, but Alessandro deserves it for being so proactive in his suggestions how to help me. The overall experience working with Siteground's support team has been very positive, but Alessandro really stood out. I've been a creative director at an agency for over 15 years and am now a beginner learning how to use Wordpress to build websites. What a breath of fresh air to work with Alessandro and your team!
I have told my partner to start referring clients to Siteground instead of GoDaddy because the service is that much better. It's worth it to pay a little more to get such superior service.
i am doing web designing from many years i used lot of hosting services , but but i did not satisfied with them, when i joined site ground and hosted my website there,i did not faced any problem there and i transferred all my websites to this host,i faced some issues while i was transferring my websites i contacted with their support and got 100% help and my problems were solved,thanks a lot for great hosting , love you always.
Siteground has had amazing support for the time I have been with them. I have called and used the live chat feature and all the times I have contacted them they have been prompt, knowledgable, courteous and extremely helpful. I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for solid hosting! If you are in the market definitely give them a shot!
Siteground for the professional and the absolute beginner
I have had a web site host previously where customer support really did suck! We finally built our site with there site builder tools, however by this time 4 months had passed due to the lack of support.
SiteGround really comes into its own not only with the site tools but with there excellent customer support which has live chat 24 hrs a day. Without there support I wouldn't ever have been able to change my host or have a fabulous new look website , big thank you to all the staff keep up the good work guys
I have only had experience with one other hosting company before Siteground, but so far Siteground is way better! I love that Siteground has live chat to help and so far all the techs I've spoken with have been very helpful and have either been able to do what I needed themselves, or advise me on how to get it done. With my previous host, I was lucky if I only waited an hour between responses. Plus, Siteground has some of the most affordable hosting around. They combine great service with a great price. A winning combination!
It took me almost a month of researching and trying out different Wordpress hosting providers. I was new to Wordpress at the time and really wanted to make sure I found the best possible hosting provider for my companies startup. I am very happy that I found SiteGround. The tools they offer (like their own caching tool) to the almost unbelievably good support and quality service will keep me around! All that I get for the price I am paying is wonderful. I am on the "Grow Big" plan, and as soon as my site is ready for more power I plan to upgrade and stay with SiteGround. No joke, to anyone looking for quality Wordpress hosting in a world of junk; I highly recommend you try SiteGround. I do not think you will be disappointed.
SiteGround ROCKS!! I joined their hosting a few weeks ago and I have to say it is nothing short of SUPERB! For a newbie like myself, having a good support system is a must, and SiteGround is excellent in this aspect. Within minutes I receive a reply about the issues I am having. They take every step to ensure you're getting the help you need immediately. I have dealt with other platforms where asking for assistance was left unattended for days, but with SiteGround you are never left in the dark and able to keep moving forward with your projects because they attend to your needs as soon as you send a request. One thing I can't deal with is not being able to work on my sites when I have an issue and ask for help, but your request goes unanswered for days. With SiteGround you don't have to worry about ever being held at a standstill to wait on support. I will be a SiteGround subscriber for years to come. I have finally found the Hosting Account I need for my business, thanks to SITEGROUND! BEST Hosting Provider In The World. Thank you!
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.

I come from aruba to siteground 2 week ago. I noticed a large performance improvement. Siteground offer many features that with other hosting services aren't available. Gratis cloudflare, many important statistics, wordpress optimization with supercache system. And the best thing is: the support service.
The technical are very qualified. I am very satisfied! I recommend it!
Well what can we say about Siteground?, From the initial consultation, the information given met our needs, we didn't need to spend thousands, we would suggest using Siteground to all who need honest advise, quick response, technical support and so on. 24/7 support also, Ive been working from home many evenings, tired etc, made a mistake, site has gone down, contacted Siteground via the chat feature and BOOOOOM there is a fantastic member of the team there to assist.
1 word sums up Siteground
Siteground were recommended on this site (Whoishostingthis) as a move from MediaTemple (mainly because MT are quite expensive in my opinion).
I have moved 2 accounts, one personal and the other work.
I was very persuaded by the free (included) price of moving my existing site.
I was fully expecting them to only move one database, but the whole site files.
On my personal site they did just that, recognised my main wordpress database but moved all the files on the site except those in the one other site hosted on this account.
However despite explaining on my work site that while theres a wordpress site, all the files need moving they just moved the wordpress directory and not the directories outside of that. They also made wordpress root when I had it in /wordpress for a good reason, no consultation just moved.
I complained and they said they do just one site and shut down the ticket. I opened a new one and they said to reopen the ticket.
Moving just the wordpress directory is fine if its made clear but also I should have been asked about making it root.
Overall Im happy and have moved most of the file myself, chat support has been helpful - Id wager its no MT for support which has been amazing, but it should be acceptable.
Simply the best customer care experience ever! I had few minor and major problems with transferring websites from another "famous and horrible" hosting, and they really went more than the extra mile to help, even if the issues had nothing to do with them. With the previous hosting I waited more than 48 hours for an answer, the chat support of Siteground is just brilliant, i contact them day and night and I always had a solution for my problem.
I highly recommend them, try their services and you will stop to have nightmares about your website!
Totally Rocks!! seriously.. I've been developing site for 10 years and struggled with other host providers.. I wish I'd moved to Siteground years ago.. We might have saved a few quid hosting elsewhere, but I can now see it was false economy.. the extra cost is worth every penny.. their live chat support is brilliant.. performance and speed is blinding.. I can't recommend them highly enough.. and no.. I don't work for them or have shares in the company, I'm a self employed freelance artist in Suffolk UK
As a web designer, I have actually used quite a few hosting services, and of all the services, I can say with certainty that Siteground's customer service is hands down the best I have ever dealt with. I am always matched with a customer service provider in an impeccable amount of time and each customer service provider has given me above and beyond service. I just recently worked with Bluehosts customer service team and wanted to bang my head against the wall because they were so difficult to work with, slow, and just completely unhelpful. That is not the case with SiteGround at all, and I think just the customer service alone is enough to convince me to stay with siteground.
SiteGround today we ratifies has matured into a reliable reference as web hosting provider, most plans offer "unlimited bandwidth for transfer" to it also sumémosle product offering cheap hosting. For the caracterisiticas of their hosting plans, the affordable costs thereof. For its costs and benefits in their web hosting plans; We consider this vendor a very good recommendation for everyone.
It is a quality hosting and a very good price. The Spanish support is what I like because I'm Latino. I recommend siteground web hosting for small, medium and big project's. True quality webhosting for a cheap price. SiteGround web hosting hire if you want your web project to be taken seriously
Loathsome PRODUCT. Appalling SERVICE. Take your business somewhere else. A few things to remember: that 100% cash back assurance is more similar to a 40% cash back surety after they deduct for the administrations that are - well, non-refundable. (Alert - discover an amplifying glass to peruse that small, little print.) Okay - so then after you get the chance to keep your space name that you paid for, and which is non-refundable, and get yourself another web host, they CAN'T OR WON'T divert your movement to your new SiteGround. Really that is not precisely genuine: you can change the A Record until they erase it. Unpleasant, dreadful, no great, awful organization.
Siteground is the definitely the best WordPress host around. From $3.95 to $14.95 per month, it is very affordable for people looking for WordPress hosting depending on their needs. With extra features like caching and CDN, it makes my websites load faster which is very important to Google. There's even free SSL encryption to make your sites secure. The interface is very user friendly and if you need to add any service it is all within a few clicks. Regarding down times, they were hardly noticeable if any.
One of the most important features of any web host is the support team. They answer almost immediately whenever I sent a ticket about any problems or could not figure the solution. The support team has always provided the right solutions without fail. The previous host I used was terrible at their support, so switching to Siteground was the best decision I made thanks to a support team who are dedicated to solve hosting issues of any kind.
For whatever reason if you're not satisfied with their services, there's a 30 day money back guarantee. Which I don't think you will. Siteground will not disappoint you.
With all these features (especially for GoGeek which I am using), that's a lot of bang for your buck right there!
Support is Supurb, if you get through to the right person. Many of the workers are extremely Helpful. Lachevez, or something similar to that, helped me find an error that I would have never found.
Be sure to ask as many questions as possible! They will answer each and every one most of the time
I have used Siteground hosting since my last hosting service started having too much down time. I searched for a new hosting service and checked them all out. After going over the pros and cons of the hosting services I found, I chose Siteground as being best suited for my needs. I think I've been with them now for about three or four years. They have been very helpful when I needed it. And no question I asked was treated as if it was a stupid question. All of the chat people I've chatted with and all who answered my support tickets were polite, courteous and very helpful.
amazing setup service very helpful. they spend a lot of time helping me and making all the process super easy for me. i was working on a problem that i had with open cart but they made it so easy i only had to do a couple of steps and they handled the rest.
Calling something “best” out rightly is considered to be bold but in case of Siteground, there is no word that describes them better. I have tried out a handful of Wed Hosts before finally landing my feet in the lands of Siteground. Ever since, I did not have to look into other Web Hosts. Siteground has been able to fulfill all my requirements, ranging from solid uptime, infinite storage space and great responsiveness. Everytime I face any kind of an issue regarding my website, their tech team is easily approachable and to top it off, they’ve never taken more than 15-30 minutes to be able to resolve my issues. At the time of subscribing to them, I was promised an uptime of 99% and I believe I have been receiving an even better uptime.
Another positive highlight of SightGround is their daily backup system. The chances of losing your data is close to none.
Some other features that attracted me as a customer towards them were:
- Extremely secure server
- Lightning fast web servers
- Unlimited storage space
10/10 from me to Siteground!
SiteGround ROCKS n ROLLS over the competition with its in depth customer experience. Went in for a casual stroll ... came out endorphin raging, fist pumping, fingers twitching, ready for some web creation. Now I don't have to worry, e-mail's included! Thanks SiteGround, and shout out to the rockstar Mr. Erv H!
Siteground is one of the most professional and efficient hosting companies I've dealt with. I'm not a professional web designer, but I do design websites both in Joomla and Wordpress. I also utilize ecommerce and in all of that, Siteground helps, instructs and has great patience!
I pay for upgraded support and they do not disappoint. Within 10 minutes I either have a solution or they have fixed what I have broken. I just cannot say enough about the support.
They have worked with Wordpress and Joomla extensively, so there is never an expertise gap. I use both, so its very much worth the extra we pay for this service and hosting.
If you have a budget that can handle a little bit more, its so worth it, in my humble opinion.
I've used GoDaddy and HostGator - both disappointed me in terms of support and expertise to make my job successful. Siteground has it all.
I love this hosting most recommended by me
Two year ago i was just a novice, now i have two sites with siteground. The first is built with Joomla, the other one with Wordpress. I like Siteground so much because of the great package and related services you receive: Joomla and Wordpress are installed for free, free template also installed (Joomla, WordPress), video tutorials, forum. And if I have a question, I always get response in the helpdesk - almost immediately. That is awsome for me, and this is why I recommend Siteground.
i am using siteground since 2015 and now i am going to share my personal experience with public..
i got all the features at a single place ,
i am 100% satisfied . its really awesome.site ground is highly recommended you will enjoy the more efficient and faster service
i am really feeling lucky , siteground ROCKS !!!
keep up the good work
Thank you guys!!!!
I dont normally write reviews but I am honestly blown away at how good this host is. Not only how fast, reliable and easy to use their cloud hosting solution is, but their support is out of this world. I had 7 sites to move to a faster cloud solution as they are viral sites that are image and video heavy eg catvirals.com and I had a bit of trouble (my fault not theirs) figuring out how best to move wordpress and test it etc, so they said for me to put in a ticket with the details and they will do it, they moved all my sites within a few hours and everything went extremely smoothly and now the sites are blazingly fast.
At the sale stage, they advised me to go with the lowest cloud package and I can set it to auto scale, so I went with just 1gb ram, and the system auto upgraded it to 2gb for 1 month, then it will go back down to 1gb, and should it need, will auto scale again.
Incredible host with incredible support - very very refreshing.
I am a non-tech and prefer wordpress to develop pages. Siteground provides me with wordpress hosting service; with great features and unbeatable uptime. The auto-update of Wordpress keeps me worry free. Siteground’s plans for Wordpress hosting is affordable and worth the cost for their excellent customer support. They are very friendly and support me well. I do have to mention that the speed of the websites hosted with Siteground is very quick with almost no downtime. Any maintenance activities on their servers are notified in advance by email which helps us to plan and manage the situation well.
Overall my 100% recommendation to Siteground.
Any time I have a question, whether easy or complicated, a customer service rep is quickly available. I can call on the phone any time of day, or I can submit a ticket online. Each and every time I've worked with SiteGround on an issue, they've either answered my question or solved my problem immediately. I can't say enough about SiteGround's customer service. Plus, all the things I used to pay extra for as "add-ons" and things that were just plain confusing through the other hosts I tried before I found SiteGround are included and easy to find with my SiteGround account. (Things like privacy, back-ups, c-panel and FTP access, free domain name with sign-on, strong security,...) And one more thing, SiteGround is not in the business of upselling me all the time. Really great folks and service—I'm finally satisfied with my web-host!
The siteground team is very helpful and supportive.
I don't have any knowledge before, but once I start using siteground,
I use the hosting service as well as the domain service.The awesome part is
that they can have email accounts too, although it is only up to 2 GB, but it is good.
Their template in the wordpress look nice and I like it very much and I am looking to whether
I can build my ovw wordpress site by using this lovely template.
Many thank to siteground and their supportive staff.
Massively helpful customer support & migration team. Would happily recommend to anyone! I was unsure of who to move my companies hosting to and after days of searching I spent a large amount of time speaking with the Siteground team via live chat. They couldn't have been more helpful at this stage. However what has really impressed me is that same level of support and guidance has continued through to after sales, which is so often lacking with many hosts. All round a great service & fantastic team.
SiteGround has been the best hosting experience I ever had. Firstly their customer support
is very efficient and responsive. They get to solve any problem whether it is related to
hacking, site loading problem etc. within 15-20 minutes of quick service. Secondly I would
like to appreciate the up time of the web servers that I never have had complaint of
server down from any visitor of my blog. There cpanel interface is very user friendly as
with a little technical background you can smoothly use all the features provided.
Finally I want to say that I found the best possible hosting solution and I am happy with that!
Well, I 'm here to tell you from my experience so far with web company.
While the price is a bit high compared to other hosting, the service is excellent . It has 0 % downtime, and service responds quickly.
On the negative side , you could say that the panel is unintuitive at times . More than anything in what concerns the forum because they are not linked per se. This could be improved by adding easily access the board from the same panel , and with no need to register new account for it.
Well that's all I have to say that web company.
Wow, real support. I don't think I have ever received this level of care from a host. transfer to them was made easy, 2 requests, were not only met with a response inside 40min, they provided me with links to be able to complete my requests personally, and in seeing the issue I had they went ahead and rectified the problem immediately.
I just really like their service. Widely recommended, excellent response time they have given me and I have solved my problems. Their shared hosting is good and even comparable to a dedicated server on another host. Quick response and reasonable price. Answering in a few minutes. Undoubtedly the best. Thanks.
Siteground, by far, is one of most helpful hosting sites out there. As a search based website owner, I require a good hosting website to keep my work active and non-stop. I was recommended Siteground by a fellow colleague who upon seeing my disdain with my server shutting off again and again and the response from the support team being slow and insufficient suggested this website. My problems regarding both the above issues were resolved upon using Siteground as the support team was quick to respond over the problems I faced on my website, and took not more than 15-20 minutes whenever I seeked their help, and almost all of the servers were active ones. Therefore, I would recommend Siteground to anyone who likes active servers and is annoyed by shutting down of servers.
I had a website which generates 90,000 approx view daily. But the problem with old hosting was that, their downtime. Due to which my ranking dropped. Since then i am using siteground hosting. Its really amazing, negligible downtime and many more features. Its support is awesome. I have used many hosting till now but i can say among all of them siteground is best.
I was a costumer of hostgator before i go to SiteGround , I really dont liked its costumer service and the uptime was very poor so, for my needs, and bad experiences with some other hostings, i finally take a advice from one friend and i move to SiteGround . In my experience withSiteGround , It is a good hosting service provider in my opinion cause it has a very good prices for the services that they offer and i like their features like its tweaked cpanel that allow all kind of users manage it without know some of the technical issues, i like too the fast way to buy domains and add ons domains in the cpanel. Other good thing is the ftp speed. Respect to the Uptime of my website, i think that it isnt in 99% but its near to 97%. I dont know how the support service works cause i really havent ever needed it. Finally, i think that SiteGround is one of the best webhosting services and in my little expertise, i can say that they are very professionals with their bussiness and i recommend this to all people that need a basic and intermediate web hosting service that have a good uptime service.
very good service. making yourselves easily contactable is refreshing, instead of hiding quick contact info. in an obscure place on website, like some folks do. Also, the folks who I have had contact appear to have pretty good knowledge and are willing to help as much as they are able. I guess the best thing I have experienced so far is that when I wish to contact you with a concern I can do it in a minute or so.
Siteground is one of the best hosting companies. Since I am a blogger so, when I am using different hosting companies. The server gets down. The support teams are also lazy. So, I search on google, youtube, and other social media asking everyone that what is the best hosting company which has the best server and also best support team ? so, one of my friends suggested me siteground. Then I search the reviews about siteground, and it was impressive so, I decided to shift my hosting to siteground and guess what, it is my best decision to buy siteground Hosting. If I get any problem related to my websites, i directly go to support team, and they fix the problem within just 10 to 15 minutes. Awesome server 98% servers are active. I highly recommend this to every blogger, business owners who are tired of getting down servers and less secure servers. Siteground is the reliable, safe and secure server.
I must compliment Siteground on a number of levels
- live chat support staff are friendly and very helpful
- mostly, I am able to resolve my queries (and being non-technical, that is something!!)
- ease of use of the website
- a great reputation as a quality web host
One of the problems I am encountering almost every single time I am on live chat - is that our LiveChat conversation is repeatedly disconnected - sometimes 8-10 times during a single conversation...which is very frustrating!! I'm not sure if there's anything we can do to improve this?
I am not a developer and I just made my site with WordPress so it is common for me to encounter errors while optimizing my site. For the past week they have answered every question and solved every problem I had. Having no technical background, I would have to say that without their customer support I would not have survived the process of optimizing my site.
It's astounding how much error you could encounter when developing a site, but I can say that Siteground makes this process easier. This, really, is a statement of their customer support. Plus the speed of my site is good and I haven't experienced any downtime. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
i start to use siteground like 20 days ago ... it was suggested from one friend . You are fantastic !!! So far i am totally satisfied from customer support. I just buy 1 year startup packet , and i am glad that i do it ^_^
i recommend siteground to everyone!!! It's the best hosting service so far i experience.
SiteGround rocks! Your Support people are awesome. I got to chat briefly with 3 of them today as they resolved my problem. As Ioan said, "let me work my magic". The magic you can do in the background when I do something stupid like delete my entire website (actually 3 of them) with a single keystroke (actually a click this time) is impressive. Thank you for awesome service.
The best hosting I could have imagined. I was recommended to the site by a WP theme vendor because their theme kept failing on two other hosts. Siteground moved the WP and it has never failed to work. The support is outstanding with short wait times on chat on very skilled answers. Up time 100%. I highly recommend.
They respond to my queries and questions very speedily, provide the support I need, their call center doesn't have a long wait time and they resolve any complaints very efficiently. I am not a techy person so having support that makes me able to do a number of basic things on my own is awesome.
I am very pleased with site ground.
Their Servers response time are the best that I have experienced so far. Updating my site with FTP used to take 5-10 minutes, now it only takes a minute!
Quality Support Team. Never fail to disappoint, every time I face an issue, I can rest assure knowing that with the livechat function, my problem usually gets resolved within 30 minutes!
Pricing is also very affordable! I would highly recommend siteground to anyone who needs web hosting.
Hey guys today I will share my experience, 2 years and 6 months ago that I'm using this web hosting service. Before I was in a small lodge, the truth up to now I forgot the name of that hosting service up to not is if it still there had recommended it me because it was very cheap $3 a month "truth not is because this subject recommended me this accommodation service" and as they say here in Nicaragua, the cheap is expensive so I had a very bitter experience whenever it was entering my wordpress desktop the site will hit me, went into my cpanel and the same sheath.
Then I started to look for a reliable web hosting company, I had a chat with a friend who is dedicated to the community manager and the first thing he said.
So I started to stay my first domain. . Your indexing at that time was 24 hours, today only takes less than a couple of hours and my site was ready.
A few months ago, one of my sites it was misbehaving. Some funny insert as a malicious code on my site that was hosted on Hosting. I came into contact by live chat system and told them about the problem. My chat was transferred to the network security manager and they took care of my problem and they did very well, removed the malicious code from my site. Gave me proper instructions of as malicious code entered on my site and also gave me private lessons and tips to keep security in the future.
This is my first hosting company and I don't see any reason why I would need to ever change. The customer assistance is polite and quite responsive. They have all the functions I need such as Wordpress installation, Cloudflare integration and access to creating my own business emails. If I decide to build more websites (or if my current website begins to receive more traffic) then I can easily upgrade to a reseller account or even a VPS. I give them two thumbs up.
I have been searching for a good hosting provider for more than around six months. I have tried 4 providers ,all of which delivered an awful experience.The main two parameters which should be rudimentary to most of the providers in this industry are Customer Support and Uptime.While browsing , I stumbled across Siteground and was skeptical in the beginning but since I was in this journey, i decided to give it a try. I was surprised by their response. Not only customer support and Uptime, but Siteground has been consistent in delivering on all other peripheral parameters ,which is far-fetched dream for most of the hosting providers have experienced.
More often I get immediate help with whatever query I have . Also my migration was very smooth from my earlier hosting platform . I would say that my journey of a good hosting provider ends here and I m focussing all my energy in my core business .I recommend Siteground to anyone who is serious about experiencing an exceptional performance of their Online Properties.
Because I have spent a few months (about 5) testing Siteground I decided to make public my experience with this web hosting company.
The plan chosen was an offer of Shared Hosting, $3.95 month.
The service I have to say that compared to companies such Hostgator is quite good, will cater for 2-3 minutes after requesting the chat. If you send a ticket you respond to 10 minutes.
The uptime I think that 100% or 99%, I don't have problems with my website in this five months.
Important: You can locate your website both at Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Chicago (USA).
Overall experience and conclusions:
If I had to give note to Siteground based on the price at which I acquired would put a 8 out of 10 improving that rating for the price.
Entirely in English (my main language is Spanish).
Siteground excels in customer service and was able to answer my questions efficiently and effectively via live chat. As a small business owner, my time is valuable, too, and I feel that Siteground is in touch with professionals who need a great site and quick solutions. I have used other web hosting services in the past, which eventually all had issues - so far, after a year with Siteground, I have not encountered any issues. I would highly recommend their services for the small-medium business owner.
If you prefer hosting with ease
We host our company site and having some difficulty in managing our emails (cannot send and receive).
I don't like the idea on removing support thru email and their live chat will make you wait for about 5 mins or more and offers only call support.
The beauty of their customer support is when you call them, they will fix the problem right away.
Support also explains why it happened and giving advises on how to avoid it.
I am reading other posts, good and bad reviews and to think of it, it is common for those hosting sites to experience issues like downtime and customers having problems on setup, migration, and managing domains.
The service provided by Siteground is second to none. Personally, I like to chat in for support. I couldn't be happier with the level of service they provide to myself and my clients. In the last couple of months I've transferred all of my clients from (rhymes with BooHost) to Siteground.
I've been a Siteground customer for about 10 years. During that time I've had Excellent and extremely patient customer service. I'm 70 years old and the Technicians have always been very patient with me even though I am not very computer literate. They recently helped me transition my html website to a much more attractive and useful WordPress website.
Thanks Siteground !!!
I use SiteGround and I can say that everything is running smoothly , the support is the best respond quickly , I recommend everyone to choose this server is the best solution that could be compared to other servers. Do not waste time in others, this is the solution to your problems head with servers. SiteGround Thank you for giving us this opportunity. I am happy with their services offered. Thank you very much
There are Wordpress-specific web hosts and I came from one of them, thinking that Wordpress-specific will greatly improve my chances in the search engines or that they will be easier to
manage. I later realized that they're all the same except for some hosts that offer free Wordpress backups, which frankly can be done easily in the cPanel.
I learned about this when I switched to Siteground. It seems that my previous host was very slow and when I had to develop my site in order to expand my business I had to actually call them to
increase my memory limit, this was after I sent 3 ignored tickets that remained open for a couple of days.
I moved to Siteground because someone recommended it to me and told me that their staff have high technical experience and can assist me when I run into problems fast. This is what I needed,
so I went in.
I like their dashboard because it has a really nice interface and everything I need is in it when managing my account. When my credit card expired I was given an extension of my grace period
when I requested for it in the support as I worked on sorting it out. Very nice people. I was not nagged with newsletters and promotions in the e-mail, which is refreshing.
When I registered my next website to them I got a 50% discount through a coupon. This made me say that their value is SUPERB in terms of price and features.
I'm still with Siteground now and my site has grown in traffic and number. I have hosted more than 10 sites with them and my investment has been returned. I won't make it without the help of the
friendly people at Siteground and their amazing support.
I have started with Siteground as a shared web host client and then later purchased a reseller from them. Siteground is one of the fastest that I know of and I'm able to make money through their
platform through my sites and the reseller I offer to my design clients.
Siteground does no oversell, I'm very sure of it by experience. I came from a web host that promises "unlimited" everything-- e-mails, disk space, memory, bandwidth... and guess what I got:
terrible down times.
I can safely say by experience that Siteground's web hosting is fast and the support is great. The reseller has saved my hundreds by hosting my sites in one plan and also offering extra fee for
hosting to my clients.
Everyone who came from cheap sites like Hostgator or Host9 might think twice about Siteground in terms of price. But to be honest, you'll save more from stress than if you were with the other
popular hosts. I recommend this to everyone, especially to those who don't want to suffer from downtimes because of being hosted in a very crowded server.
Siteground is a good hosting for small businesses. I have been a customer of theirs for almost 2 years now and I've been very happy after I have migrated my site to their platform.
The cheapest plan is very affordable and the integrity of the hosting has been tested. I say this because I was from Hostgator then transferred to Bluehost and lastly prior to SG I was from Arvixe, so you can see how I've tread the waters for several sites and the common problem is always downtime followed by poor support after I contact them regarding the downtime.
I never hard any downtime problem with Siteground that took too long. Downtime is really unexpected. I have noticed a couple of times when my site went down for around 2-3 minutes but it never happened again. They also send e-mails prior to any server maintenance.
Siteground team is always there whenever I needed them specially in my panic mode where an urgent help is needed. I'm doing eCommerce business since 5 years and I had tried few of other hosting providers but found SiteGround the most trustable. I would recommend SiteGround to everyone, just give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
ok, I come to tell you about my experience with this SiteGround, and the truth, I found excellent, I have not had any problems with hosting, has been very good, easy to use, and customer service has been very attentive, one once I did not know a function when installing the hosting and they immediately assisted me and helped me solve my doubts, excellent service, I'm not complaining, I recommend it, very economical and efficient, what we want everything. Excellent!
We relied greatly in Siteground to expand our cause through our simple site. From the time when I first started and had problems with my nameservers to setting up our second site under the same host, I had the best support experience with Siteground so far. I recommend Siteground because it's an honest company and the people are very helpful. They don't feed you with "unlimited plans", they just give you the resources you need for the price that's reasonable. A+ and highly recommended for all types of sites, big and small.
Being the webmaster I was in charge with the technical decisions, including which hosting company to rely on for the organization's site. I did not have second thoughts with Siteground because I saw other bigger companies rely on it and I saw it to be a good investment. Not only has siteground brought our traffic up and gave us the exposure we needed online, SG has gained me credibility in my expertise as the go-to person for tech decisions.
The customer support is courteous and easy to call. When we encounter huge problems we can call them via phone. Most of the time I contact them via their ticket system which responds after an hour or more. When in small and urgent matters related to the account we simply go to their live support and ask for immediate assistance.
As with the value, it's the best value for every serious company. I suggest you invest in a good company for your hosting and don't risk it on the smaller ones. I made that mistake once and learned it the hard way. Siteground is a huge company but the price is really achievable for small businesses. I've heard of other hosting companies that offer almost 10x the price with the same features as SG. It's not that bad at all.
I get a few minutes of downtime every once in a while. Our monitoring system gets this, but I get only about 20-40 minutes of downtime per month.
Highly recommended and after years, still impressed.
We're based on Los Angeles and we hosted our site on Siteground's servers despite many local companies in LA and in Spain offering us to host on their servers for less. SITEGROUND = VALUE so we choose Siteground above the other hosting companies because of its multiple data centers that guarantees 99% uptime and the outstanding features. The support is also great although we never had any huge problem with the hosting for us to frequently call support. We have reached them seldomly via e-mail on small matters.
The best hosting company for business class.
The siteground staff have just been professional from day one.They have taken their time to assist whatever issues or questions that I may have had.
I am glad that I made the choice to go with them and their service packages. I have been able to build my business and feel secure while creating my
domains, knowing that I can call or chat and receive and answer that helps me to do the right thing and continue to keep a secure account.
I am feeling very lucky for choosing SiteGround to host my blog, as they have:
-> Very Light-speed Web Servers
-> Effective Response Time
-> Impressive Customer Support
-> Very Secure Servers
Their up time is just great as approaching 100% and I will also appreciate their support
team that they usually already had discovered the issue and working on it before it is
reported and is handled within 15 minutes of rapid recovery. There servers are very
reliable and secure that I feel very protective hacking attempts to my blog.
In short I am very happy with their service!
SiteGround hosting service is really rocks. I am really happy by using their service. They really provide great customer support. Sometime when i got any error in my website i always contact them and they provide me quick response. I am using their service for more than 2 years. The most amazing thing is that they provide daily backup and auto updates which saves customer time and increase website security. i got hacked my website 2 times when my website was running on previous hosting provider that's why i want to change my hosting and after that i found SiteGround. Now i am happy and satisfied with their service.
Siteground hosting is second to none. Their support is top notch and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait more than a minute for support via the chat feature and my problem is handle promptly. Their hosting is fast and reliable. I've not renewed my other hosting accounts and I'm migrating all of my customers over to Siteground.
Support is the most important part to siteground, you are connected to someone fast, and they are kind, patient, and understanding. I have been on chat with them for HOUR at least 20, in the past 4-5 days and the support was always truly incredible, and friendly even when I know me not understanding, and asking repetitive questions must have been extremely annoying. I have talked with at least 20-30 people on the support staff and they are all wonderful truly people.
Well worth the money. Be on for several years and have no complaints. and cost or service. Recommend Site Ground for any business. Try it for a year and you will be hooked. The people are responsive and knowledgeable. It is a pleasure to work with them. Try it for sure.
I've been highly impressed by the help and support provided by Siteground. The Siteground support staff has always been very quick to respond and extremely patient with the queries. They explain everything clearly and immediately check for accuracy of information. The website is always functional. However, the video documentary that I have uploaded does not work on the website though it is within the space given.
It seems like I have been around the block a few times with this whole webhosting business!
Straight up I am not a techically minded person and despite having had a few website relating to my passion (and something I do know about) Skating and roller derby for a while now - it took me me a while to understand the concept of webhosting.
A simple explanation is that a webhost is simply a computer that is always on, always connected to the internet and where your website "Lives"
Excuse the over simplfied explanation but I feel novices and technophobes might benefit from that information!
I had previously been using Godadday and Hostgator as lets face it - they advertise relentlessly! At first I though Godaddy was going to be the way to go but I found their "control panel" a bit difficult to get my head around and when i called support - I found them to be pretty unethusiastic and not very helpful! I had a few problems with uploading the site and after a while with no help on their side - cancelled my account.
I then went with Hostgator who were much more helpful but I found their actual service to be very poor! I would often hear from my team mates and associates in the sport that our site was down - it always came back online eventually but downtime makes us look a bit amateurish.
I read a few reviews around and someone on Facebook recommended siteground and I have to say third time lucky! I have found their service to be very helpful and most importantly my website is always viewable online.
I give this company 4/5 as I found that when my site was on Hostgator (even though it was sometimes offline) it wa a little bit faster - however I would prefer it to be online consistently a slightly slower. So its a bit of a happy comprimise.
I highly recommed this company.
I am a web developer who in recent years has branched out from building sites
for local tradesmen such as plumbers and locksmiths into the world of bespoke
I am often asked what the best platform for ecommece is - is it Shopify? Is it Magento?
How about Open cart? In 9/10 cases I highly recommend using Wordpress and
As long as you take the time to secure your site properly - Wordpress is
more than up to the task and woo commerce has some amazing extensions
that enable it to be customized for use in almost any business.
In the years gone by I have tried almost every major hosting company and
I have concluded that when it comes to hosting a wordpress site that is
intended for commercial use - you need to go with a host who understands
Wordpress and how the server environment needs to be set up in order
for it to run properly.
I have found that after a run of disppointing performance and and support
on numerous other host, that siteground is the answer to my prayers.
As soon as I had registered the domain I recieved my login info by an
email and had Wordpress installed a few minutes later. I later imported
the site I had been working on locally and within less than 30 minutes
I had everything set up.
I did have a slight issue with a rogue plugin (always a risk with open source
platforms) however support informed me rapidly and once I had dealt with the
issue put my site back live on the server immediately.
We get a fair amount of traffic these days and we find that for a medium
sized store like this - siteground fits the bill perfectly.
A quick bit of my back-story. Basically I am a 'magic marker' guy. Somewhere along a career path as a art director in advertising I turned into a web designer. Essentially I see myself as a creative who needed to embrace technology because I had to and I loved it. I watched my self embrace more and more skills outside my core competence, and mostly I coped just fine. In my 20 years as a web guy my skills have evolved again and I now can unpack more 3 and 4 letter anagrams than can be good for me. I can't believe the stuff I have to deal with now and all to make a website. After a very nasty hack last year I decided to move my sites to a specialist Wordpress host and after loads of research chose SiteGround. Not least because they are excellent value for money. I did think though I might be risking a cut down service with poor tech support. But nothing could be less true. Not only do I rarely wait more than a few minutes for a response, the level of knowledge is staggering. Just today, and the reason I am writing this, a new client asked me to help set her with Office 365 which meant altering the MX records. Oh please. Do I really have to figure out that stuff? Well no, because using 'Live chat' someone with great expertise helped me and although actually I can't tsk the credit I was obliged to high-five myself because I successfully added an MX record. The reality is that I am at my happiest (and best) when I can just do the fancy stuff of design but when I have needed help with technical stuff Siteground have never failed to be there in what is really a very, very fast time. Sometimes fixing stuff that in all honesty I am not sure isn't outside their remit - I screw up a site with a bit of careless code and some sweet tech person says never mind it's all better now.
They are Rock , I'v very good page load speeds ,Price is cheap when we compare with big competitors in the Hosting industry , their uptimes are really impressive , The Support is very gently , i request to upgrade from StartUp to GrowBig and it done in no time , and without any downtime to my website , I think they are my best choice now .
The customer support at Siteground is absolutely fantastic! To say they're fast would be a mild understatement. They're lightning! I love that their people know what they're talking about even when I don't (which is most of the time). And they're so doggone friendly! Best customer experience I've ever had with any kind of tech company by far. In fact, they might be the best of any company I've ever dealt with.
I'm a big fan of SiteGround's hosting service. My favorite part about them is their support - I have had problems multiple times (due to my fault) but there support helped me solve my problems quickly. The support is always available too, which is very nice. I like their advanced features too, especially the one click git repo creation feature. They also offer SSL, and make a lot of backup copies for you, which is extremely useful, and it means I don't have to spend more money getting a SSL certificate. Thanks for the great service, SiteGround!
I just want to say how happy your support team makes me! I just got a domain, and your team has been wonderful helping me get up and running. I have been on chat a few times, and I am a completely clueless when it comes to websites and building them. I just feel so old when it comes to this stuff... you've all been great in pointing me in the right direction with all of my stupid questions haha!
The web developer for our architectural firm shipped our site with a supposedly "free" hosting. The host was good until a year later some DDos attack occured (this I have no technical knowledge of), which crippled our site for a couple of days as they try to sort it out. Next thing we knew we lost the site. It was good that our developer had a full backup of the site and when the DDOS problem was gone we continued with the company. I was still worried that it might happen again, considering that we need to pay the developer a fee for every recovery of backup.
A friend of mine suggested Siteground and Liquidweb. I saw Siteground to have very good features for a low price for the features we need. I picked siteground and now we're still happy with it. Totally loved and recommended!
What I like the most about siteground is that their servers are really reliable and they have all the features that any large scale business would mean. It doesn't mean though that small businesses can't use it, but if it works for the big sites, why not for the small?
I have relied on SG for my landscaping business because I wanted a secure server. We have spent a lot of money to develop the website and we don't want to put all our investments to waste. Hosting might just be a small fraction of the capital needed for a website, but it's the biggest factor to consider. I know that I need a host that is fast and can recover my website in case something unexpected happens. Siteground is a must for any serious Internet marketer.
Siteground, in my experience, is one of the best hosting companies. I have a total of 10 websites to date hosted in Siteground's reliable servers. I never had any problems with downtime for the years I've been a loyal customer. My websites are business sites and some I bought from flippa-- a mix of PHP sites, Drupal, Joomla and Magento. In my years of being an online businessman I have tried many hosting companies and most of them fail in one reason or another.
Siteground may not be as cheap as iPage or other hosts for small businesses but you surely pay for the features you need! I highly recommend this to serious business owners who want to secure all their hard-earned efforts and host to a reliable and secure server.
Recently I have migrated to Siteground Hosting and found it to be awesome.This is the first time I m happy with a hosting provider.
Siteground customer care has helped me with the migration and they are very prompt and sober in responding to queries.
The server speed is very good with zero downtime experienced as of now.
The best part is Siteground is clear about the number of visits that the account can handle per month which is very convenient for my business.
I m delighted to experience such service for the first time in hosting industry.I have till today worked with 8 hosting providers none of which comes closer to the service that Siteground delivers. Within the next 5 days,I m planning to migrate all my digital properties to Siteground. I recommend site ground for the webmasters who wants exceptional hosting service.
Ivelin just provided great tech support. He rocks. I've used tech support 3 times in the last six months, and I really love SiteGround. I've been hosting many websites for me and for my clients since the 90's and Siteground is the best to date. I'm thinking about opening another account and moving my other sites here.
I was getting some problem to my previous hosting company then i decided to go with siteground, they transfer my data without any cost to my previous host and they did it in just 4 hours after purchasing a hosting package to them. Now my website is running without any problem and i am really happy to choose siteground. The team of siteground is really amazing and they try to solve their customer problem as soon as possible.
Man their(Siteground's) client service is GREAT and FAST and EFFICIENT. Every time you think you're stuck, their service just has the answer in a moment and know the cause of the problem. Next to that their server quality is great, my website just runs fast all the time basically and it simply just works! EASILY the best hoster I have ever dealt with, EVER!!!
I bought a wildcard SSL certificate from siteground so that I can have it work both on the main domain and also on other subdomains. The trouble was that on the subdomains it did not work. So I asked them to make it work. They replied saying that they fixed the issue while I was sleeping.
They did not fix the issue. If it was just that it wouldnt have been so much of a problem. But they managed to ruin also access to the main domain. My LIVE site was down for over 12 hours. I have re-opened the support ticket to the guy that told me that he fixed the issue. 2 hours on and all my sites are still down. I chatted with them, called them on the phone, nothing... They say they understand me and they thank me for my patience. But my site is still down.
This is the second time they have issues with SSL certificate installations. It seems that they can't handle them. I would expect tht the most basic thing to do after re-installing an SSL certificate is to make sure that the re-installation worked. Instead they send me a happy email saying that they fixed the issue without even double-checking.
Why 450 000 Domains Trust Siteground
Nowadays it’s almost as difficult choosing a web hosting company as it is running your own site. All of them promise 99% uptime, unlimited resources and excellent support. But after reading through what is available and at what price, you soon realize not all web hosts are created equally.
When looking for a web host it is recommended that, before you sign on the dotted line, you establish what it is you need, how much you want to spend and what you expect in return.
The main factors to take into account when deciding on a web host are:
Reading a number of reviews and looking at the various comparisons done, it is fair to say Siteground is one of the best web hosting services currently available.
With over 450 000 domains and data centers across the US, Europe and Asia, they are doing exceptionally well, given that they’ve only been around since 2007. When one tracks their growth, in relation to their competition, they are definitely doing something right.
Taking the five points into account when considering Siteground as your service provider, their uptime is incredible, and they can definitely lay claim to it being 99%. In fact they over deliver, with it closer to 100%. If you are looking at the speed capabilities, Siteground is 80% faster than other web hosts reviewed. Again, they exceed expectations when it comes to page loads, which are consistently quick, with very few (if any) spikes or slow loading times.
Support is where Siteground slays any competition. Their consultants are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. When assisting with any issues they don’t use ‘geek-speak’ and are available via mail, phone and live chat.
Their feature offering is extensive and includes everything for the newbie wanting to 'StartUp' right through to the experienced 'Go'Geek', who is wanting all the bells and whistles. Also, if security is important to you, then Siteground is who you want to be with. Their security features include SpamAssassin, SpamExperts, IP address blocklists, Leech Protect, and hotlink protection.
When comparing the prices of various web hosting companies, Siteground is at the higher end of the spectrum. But having said that, for what they offer and deliver, it is definitely money well spent. Additional features they offer include:
• Free domain name
• Easy Ecommerce installations
• ‘Auto’ managed Wordpress hosting across all plans
• Free transfers for existing websites
• 50% discount forWPBeginner readers
Taking all of this into account, as well as the fact they are on a par price-wise with a lot of web hosting companies which aren’t as good, they offer exceptional value for money
I have used many hosting but didn't found any best and stable hosting.I've now tried siteground hosting for my website and it's simply awesome.Their customer service is very professional.
I'm simply loving their hosting.
I reccomend every one to try out siteground's hosting.I'm sure you'll love it !!
I am satisfied and will surely recommend Site Ground to everyone. Who is looking for a reliable hosting Service. They have a quite excellent security system. The Site Ground team provides excellent support. Because they were answered my queries very quickly. They also have great Features, and I have never faced any downtime issue also.
I am new to SiteGround but earlier i used godaddy. I would like to share some thing about SiteGround .
The best thing about SiteGround is speed. They are came up with new technologies to speed up site. and it is working very well as well.
SiteGround providing Super Cacher for all kind of plans to provide super speed to wordpress. Sure you will find some difference with speed if you have used any other hosting.
They are offering different kinds of hosting platforms like web hosting , cloud hosting and dedicated hosting. I am using web hosting and it very good and i don't know about cloud hosting and dedicated hosting
Latest speed technologies giving enhanced performance with NGINX, HTTP/2, PHP7 and free CDN.
They have their own firewall security rules to make more secure our data.
When I started using Siteground 3 years ago I was fairly inexperienced with web hosting and all the ins & outs of websites. What 1st attracted me to Siteground was the price and the fact they used Joomla and Linux servers.
During the 3 years I have used Siteground they have constantly been improving their options and I must say that the support is excellent.
I highly recommend Siteground for those who need hosting for their website.
In the past I went in for a cheap hosting company, which couldn't deliver much reliability and was really bad for my business. Then I found SiteGround, which was thrice the price, but definitely better value for the buck than I could have imagined.
SiteGround shared hosting includes scalable packages with all the tools at hand a WordPress developer needs, and the customer support is amazing: I've had more than a hundred chats, and every time my problems have been solved in a matter of minutes or hours, which is really crucial in managing a reliable and responsive business.
And, with a nearly 100% uptime and the competitive website loading speeds, I believe only a natural catastrophe would be able to rock SiteGround out of its status.
If you want a service that just works, my recommendation is SiteGround!
I have been impressed with site ground, They have great dashboard much better than my previous host.
Easy to Use
Support team always help me. They are available to chat at any time of the day. Site Ground gives more features than others.
5 Stars for Siteground.
My experience with SiteGround is pretty good. I am using SiteGround more than a year now. It gives awesome services for shared hosting too. Plus cheap prices also attracted me when I was looking for a host. It is a perfect solution for WordPress hosting.
Webspace is quite limited. Its only 10 GB for Startup plan. Rest is all awesome!
They also have tutorials and guide to help in setting up the website. Website builder is a plus where a novice can also build cool website within minutes! I would recommend SiteGround for shared hosting. Will try other services also in future!
Very Easy to Use, Great service, Excellent Support, Slick and Efficient. I am Really 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.
I decided to try Siteground after reading a lot of reviews and praises. I tried Siteground for my microniche sites and although my website had been with SiteGround for a relatively short time, it endured no downtime in that period.
According to my experience, Siteground is one of the fastest web hosts I've tried. The average response time of the shared server of my website was on was below 195 ms, that is pretty impressive.I chose the GrowBig plan which is affordable and worth for its price. It has enough server power for most of the static & dynamic sites. When I bought Siteground hosting, I was having few difficulties in setting up my shared server. When I opened my first ticket, they offered me script support and didn’t refer to any pre-existing articles instead of answering simple questions, which is a rare sight in today’s web hosting space. This was one of the best things of Siteground which impressed me.
They replied to my ticket within 9 minutes saying that it will take sometime for setting up the server. The few times I had a question about SiteGround, the team was both quick to respond and incredibly helpful.
All in all, the deals that SiteGround offers are pretty hard to beat, especially for the excellent quality of service that they provide.
I have the web hosting plan of 3.95 per month and I'm super happy. I think it is currently difficult to find quality service and price as SiteGround.
The hosting faciliadades are endless, I will describe point by point the best:
- The burden of the web is fast.
- I never had any system crash in the two years of service.
- Ddominion free.
- Installation And upgrade Wordpress in a single click.
- Possibility To add cloudflare.
- Migration free. This point is one of the best. if afraid when transferring your website. They do it all.
- Constructor website, although this never use.
- Includes CPANEL one of the best panels at no cost.
In short, for me the best is the price, support and server speed.
I had lot of issues with my local web hosting company which is when I wanted to try out something different. I was checking for reviews online about best webhosting companies and then happened to visit whoishostingthis which has several reviews from the people who were using different webhostings for their business.
Siteground has caught my attention with great reviews and I wanted to try out their service. I was easily able to setup my pet services website on Siteground within an hour. I see that I had made the right decision of buying Siteground hosting because of their great service. As mentioned on their site, they have provided excellent features. Their servers are highly configured and are optimized effectively with regular upgrades. My site was always up and here are some of the stats.
Performance grade A 92
Load time 1.76 s
So, I guess that my settings along with their super speed servers helped to achieve great loading time are also very smooth.
I thank whoishostingthis for providing me great reviews which helped me to choose the best hosting i.e Siteground for my business.
I came from Hostgator and I've been experiencing some downtime. I didn't like the hassle because as my company grew, I had to go through a lot of technical problems like possible downtime, setting up SSL certificates and installing new platforms in my server. Siteground literally worked on these for me. The support staff responded promptly and was very eager to help me out. I love you, Siteground!
Not the cheapest hosting company I know of but also not the cheap in terms of service! Siteground has helped my build my businesses online. I'm very happy to have chosen them as my main hosting provider. Their customer support is very accesible and the "live chat" feature is always live! Their infrastructure is also not cheap, thus the uptime is guaranteed. I'm loyal to them for years now and they may not be the best one to start with if you're a newbie considering that there are so many cheap hosting nowadays, they are definitely the REAL THING and the best choice for those who want to have a SECURE and FAST host.
Siteground is my go-to hosting company to host my client's websites. I run a local digital agency and I offer hosting to my clients using Siteground's Reseller plan. Siteground has not just assisted me with their support desk (which is available via live chat, by the way) for my own site's problems, they also assist me on the problems I had with every site I have in my reseller plan. I give emphasis to this because the previous hosting company I was in does not provide support to websites under my reseller plan. I highly recommend this for those who want to host their site in a very stable platform that's build for professionals.
Total incompetence from start to finish. Support tickets which cannot be responded to unless you use a pc or MAC. Same with their added services. Support staff who ignore the customer. The owner/s of siteground have no interest in how their company is operating and refuse to talk with customers. Expensive SSL options unless you choose not to bother with a site seal. Website transfers which ignore Cpanel and instead manually copy data into new Cpanel accounts - thus losing valuable data and settings along the way. Private DNS which fails to operate properly. If you run anything more than a blog or simplest of websites and want to destroy your business, use siteground. If you are serious about your business, stay away.
The support is great. The best one I have dealt with. The server has great up time. For the past 5 months the server has not gone down at all.
The only issue I faced was with emails. It was spamming all pdf attachments. The panel is very user friendly. This is now the only place ill be picking up hosting from.
With everyone i have dealt with so far, the customer service was excellent. They did not make me feel stupid. They did not drag out anything with long explanations. They did not patronize me negatively. They answered the chat sessions very quickly - lightening speed. clock said a few minutes and they replied in a few seconds. love it!
I spent weeks searching for just the right place to host a friend's business website. After reading several online reviews by reputable sources, I discovered that many had poor customer reviews, which was disappointing. SiteGround seemed to have everything we needed, but I wanted to see for myself, so I went to their online support. I was pleasantly surprised that all my questions were answered quickly and any remaining fears I had were gone. I spent 20 minutes going over a laundry list of "must-haves" and "how-do-I's" and each were answered very eloquently and to my satisfaction. I will be meeting with my friend next week and will propose that we use SiteGround as the web hoster for her growing business. If my experience with SiteGround going forward was anything like that initial chat, I know that this will be a very successful partnership.
Siteground for me rocks.
Yes! I shifted to siteground because I was frustrated from my previous hosting company(don't want to disclose name) because they have horrible support. I purchase 3 year plan at discounted price they were offering at that time. I could not install my wordpress website due to some technical issues, and I create support ticket and waited 5 days, No response You know waiting 5 days is enough to know that you are in wrong hands. so I immediately ask them to refund and move to siteground same problem occurs there too, but their support is very good, go reply with in 8hrs and they solve my issue in next 24hrs. I have growbig package there, because I have so many website and all are working great. So far never have to ask for any support till today, their price are very affordable compared to previous with cpanel x3.
What an excellent and solid this hosting company is! I own few websites and have them hosted with at least 4 different hosting companies, but SiteGround is clearly outstanding. Their technical support is super fast and patient and their uptime time is simply perfect. For the last 3 years my site has never been down even for a second! Knock on wood but so far everything is running without hiccups and I have had not a single issue with my website. Good job!
SiteGround, as always, delivers a high-quality product for a very competitive price. Their split between managed and unmanaged dedicated servers mean that no matter what Linux distribution you’re looking for you’re likely to find yourself happy at SiteGround. As for their shared hosting, CentOS is stable and easy to access and manipulate, perfect for a shared environment and especially useful if you’re tech skills don’t quite amount to wizardry.
Uptime is one of the most important factors everyone look before placing an order, however at site ground you don’t have to worry about till now I haven’t faced any downtime but still you should avoid yearly maintenance and service improvement planned downtime.
Well, I just wanted to tell you that if you have enough budget and looking for a trusted platform to host your website go with SiteGround. If you do not have that kind of budget and looking for other option, then you should check another hosting.
One of the most lovable thing about SiteGround is that they have brilliant support staff. I'm using Siteground from more than 3 years now, and I've never faced any serious problem with them. However recently a month ago, I crossed my CPU seconds usage on my shared hosting account and because of that I was getting some irritating emails from Siteground. But In my case, I pinged SiteGround customer support and informed them of the issue, they reply me within a few seconds of my message and they gladly added extra 30k CPU seconds to my account without asking me a second question. That's what I love about them, their customer support.
I rarely rate or review anything (we are all busy right) :-) BUT when an experience with a company is top-notch in all aspects, I simply had to take this time to share...
As a technically challenged woman, I looked around and asked in many communities about affordable and reliable hosting. Tried a few and was dismayed at the support. UNTIL I tried Siteground. Someone mentioned them in a FB group and it sounded promising (especially for a technically challenged lady on a budget) I have only great things to say about SiteGround.
*Their location-based tel support was the first thing I loved! Being in Europe (Germany) and having a local nr to call! Awesome.
*Their value-for-money hosting plans is so worth it. Unlike many hosting providers which appear cheap but one ends up spending more when you have to pay for things like migrating your site from elsewhere.
*Then the Siteground customer support team. Award-winning in my eyes!!! They are so patient, I wanted help to migrate my website from a template-based provider and SiteGround team did all they could to make that as seamless as possible.They practically take you by the hand till you are happy.
* The technical support is very kind and knowledgeable, yet communicates in a way that even this newbie understood. Never did I feel like I was asking "dumb" questions. I was answered with respect, patience and a professionalism on chats that sometimes lasted 1 hour.
*The billing team today (28.05.16) way amazing! Again, the gentleman was so patient, looked into every option to help me solve my problem and when I asked, he processed the refund for a product I hadn't used all year. No pushiness to stay on. Just professional, kind support where I felt my interest as a client was more important than "making or keeping the sale"
*After such a pleasant customer support experience, I almost felt sad taking my refund :-) But I remain a very, very satisfied and impressed client. I still have one website migration and will never consider any other hosting company. Ever.
*CONCLUSION - If you are looking at hosting options or want to migrate, try them and see for yourself. I can only write about my own very pleasant experience, but can almost bet you too will be such a happy client, you´ll want to write a review! And no... SiteGround didn't ask me to review, neither am I an affiliate (yet) I just so appreciate good products and services when I see them.
If excellent customer support, value-for- money, and efficient uptime are determining factors with your hosting needs, check out SiteGround.
Top-notch! More people should know about this cool hosting company...
I was quite desperate this evening.... I was doing the update of images and photos but suddenly my website became off... there were strange phrases and nothing work well... I wrote on SiteGround chat and I found Immediatly support, the people are really kindness and problem resolving really fast, in few minutes my website was back to work well
I am a total newbie when it comes on hosting and other technical stuff. At first, a support pop up to help me but he don't know the technical stuff so after a second he immediately transfer me to Mornchil B. This guy "Mornchil B." is a very very dedicated person. He answered all my queries and even offered to setup my wordpress for me. If I could give this guy another 5 star so that it will be 10. I will! Siteground is by far the best hosting company i've ever encountered when it comes in customer service and offer. One of the cheapest but the best!
P.S: I purchase on two other hostings before without knowing what is being offered nor what i am doing.
I am an old person coming from a trade background with no computer skills.
Siteground with their patient and constant support have helped me use the web to make an income when no other way was available.
I have no hesitation in recommending Siteground to my friends & others looking fo great hosting & support.
Top drawer service, top drawer support. Perfect. I don;t really need to say any more but the system has asked me to elaborate. I have used Siteground for years, after moving from Godaddy. This service is second-to-none. I can't fault it is any way at all. Happy customer, recommended
The help and technical support is out of this world good! The live chat is staffed with people who actually know technical stuff. They have solved DKIM, SPF, Joomla and Wordpress problems right on the spot without having to escalate it to a trouble ticket. It's such a relief to be able to get an immediate solution to issues. And their affiliate program is GREAT! There's a reason they're known as the top choice for any Joomla site.
I contacted Siteground after having terrible customer service with Host gator. I had been waiting for a chat line to open up for over 30 minutes, and contacted Siteground. I was immediately chatting in less than 5 minutes.I had a lot of questions, so the operator patiently walked me through all my questions and the set up process. Just about when we were done, about an hour and 15 minutes since contacting Host Gator, I heard from Host gator chat. I was just finishing up with Siteground! I hope this excellent service continues once I am not a new customer.
I am very happy with my hosting. The up-time has been good and the features and options are a plus. I was really impressed with the customer support this morning. The representative responded to my chat request in less than a minute, was friendly, courteous and was flexible with a billing issue. I got what I needed and am VERY pleased. I am happy to recommend Siteground to others who need quality, reliable web-hosting with great service!
I am very happy with Siteground because what sets it apart from the other hosting services I had in the past is the quality of customer service! The service staff is really knowledgable and very fast. I have had this experience a couple of times, just now once more: The service representative Stoian T. (from Bulgaria/Europe) has taken a full hour to walk me through a process of launching my website. He was patient, kind, very professional and I wish I could send this testimonnial to his supervisor directly. We even got disconnected in the chat (I think Siteground has a connection issue after one hour of chat, because that is exactly when it happened) , but then we found each other again and he completed the job perfectly. He helped me to redirect the domains, change primary to additional domain and vice-versa, moved my WordPress installation and explained patiently what he did and why. This experience could not have been better. So I think a company is always as good (or bad) as the people working there - today this Stoian T. made my day! Thanks a lot. Best wishes from Hong Kong!
Top notch Wordpress hosting service, features and uptime are great, and auto-update of Wordpress means I have to worry less about security. Plans for Wordpress hosting seem to be very well thought out. And excellent customer support: Very friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things about my experience with SiteGround.
I am writing this review to recommend Siteground to everyone, at least for Church website like us. I created this website crescocommunitychapel.org and I am happy to host with Siteground since 2010.
They always provide quick and deep support for my problems
They've helped me check the issue when it overloaded and recommend replace the "bad code" plugin with the better one, everything working well after that.
They used Cpanel as the control panel, it's easy than Plesk from our old hosting company. With just few clicks you can easy install Wordpress, Drupal or many more scripts on there.
I can choose the PHP version and set the PHP memory limit too.
I love Siteground and sure you too.
Siteground is a very friendly web hosting company, we are hosting a Church website on their system and they've helped us move from expired provider to their system with no additional cost.
The speed is very good, our website always load very quick without any problem, we're using downtime monitor from Wordpress Jet Pack plugin and see no downtime over a year. That's amazing uptime and our members love that, they can access the website any time 24/7
Not only our Church website, we're hosting three more sites on same account and all working well.
Speed and uptime: A
Easy to use: A
Height recommend Siteground hosting services
I am a new member of siteground. I selected siteground wordpress hosting after going through lot of reviews and my main concern was support by representatives. I have contacted siteground several times ( presales and technical support). The response is very fast. Good service and all the representatives i have come across have been excellent.
I couldn't be any happier with siteground. We are in the process of moving from Network Solutions over to them, and the support has been phenomenal! There staff is highly professional. All of our questions have been answered promptly, and the service is excellent. We went with go geek, and we now have two domains hosted on their servers. We will defiantly be moving forward with moving our other domains over to them.
I like fast reaction time of the support and 80% they are VERY helpful 10% they are helpful.
The server initial response time is getting worse, which makes me a bit sad, because initially this was the reason why i picked Siteground.
The fact that you cannot install SSL purchased elsewhere used to make me mad, but your new cooperation with the free SSL service fixed that.
I do not understand why you need premium for SSL in cloudflare, when I do not have to do that when having cloudlfare free account which is not activated by you but directly by cloudflare.
The initial price is ok, but the extension is going to hurt. We do not know yet, if we will stay with you guys.
I do not do feedback too often, but I like your product and I enjoy your improvements.
5 years I work with these guys, hands down - They are the BEST!
I love the service, the product and the support team.
As a owner of over 80 websites, having a strong and good relationship with my server provider is the most important thing I can ask for.
Siteground is like family to me!
Siteground is a good hosting company, Support is awesome whether it is pre-sales, technical support, and after sales support they are good at providing resolutions. They keep you informed about downtime whether its planned or unplanned. Features are nice, they provide dedicated IP with all hosting plans, Cache, Let's Encrypt - a free and certificate authority and many other features.
Renewal costs are too high in comparison to 1st purchase cost.
But overall Siteground is a good company with many features and quick support.
I have gone through many hosting service providers, and I found the SiteGround best for their services. Specially, the thing attracted me towards siteground was its features. Purchased GrowBIg plan, it includes a free 1 year wildcard SSL, supports automated cloudflare CDN. If you're a wordpress user like me, its supercacher plugin works great!
On top of that, their support team is quite efficient. Automated SSL cert installation failed due to some error. They quickly installed the SSL for me manually within 30 minutes!
The only little thing that bothers me a little is 20GB storage limit, but that isn't much a problem for the other super great features.
Keep up the good and hardwork for your customers Siteground!
Moving to Siteground has meant sublime support!!! My former host often had days or even weeks response time, and often very unsatisfying answers. Site ground responds from immediately to maximum a couple of hours (and mostly the maximum is less than an hour. And it´s almost independent of the time of the day. I´m deeply impressed!! And mostly very satisfying answers, and if not, you just have to ask a follow up question, and you get what you need. Thank you so much, Siteground!!
After nothing but years of aggravation from Arvixe, before and after my website got hacked, I decided to try SiteGround. SiteGround was specifically recommended by a Joomla tutorial program I am taking - and I can use all the Joomla help I can get because I an NOT an IT person. I signed up for what I call the "BabyStepsTrial" package and the support so far has been just terrific. Responses to chat have been immediate, and tech support people have all had excellent English language skills and have been able to provide clear answers and instructions to help me get started. I am actually looking forward to working with the SiteGround support as I revive my hacked website.
I have been using Siteground Multisite hosting for a couple of years now. The staff always provides fast and courteous service. They are responsive and exceptionally helpful most of all. I consider Siteground a true gem in the hosting service space. Keep up the great work and value. Maximum stars for the best hosting service I have used in the last 12 years. Siteground blows away Bluehost, Hostgator, and especially Godaddy for hosting for quality, service, and value.
SiteGround support is excellent, be it pre-sales or technical support after registration. Features and other integration plug ins are just excellent and very useful, esp. if you do not know how to create your own website. The only thing that is missing is ASP.NET and windows base platform support.
Great customer service, top notch services, good prices!
I landed on siteground an year ago and i can not be more happy about the overall experience, especially the customer service that's made up of competent technicians and is blazing fast on replies.
Even the shared hosting is fast and powerful even woth heavy wordpress website, absolutely raccomended.
The amazing introductory services are irresistible and you r customer support is second to none. Since i joined Site Ground my operations are stable bsed on the timely support that i do get from their customer care departments. Thank you so much SG and i would recommend you to all my friends who are considering to go online soon.
Mihaela was very helpful and steered me in the right direction, thank you for amazing service :)
I was feeling frustrated as a new time website builder, Mihaela's help gave me the know how and now I can build and publish my site with confidence.
Look out for artatkarens.com.au. Best service ever. :)
Excellent customer Services.
They provide solutions to problems quickly, even when applying for refund it's quite easy on siteground, all that was required was to chat them up and every other problems will be resolved. This was my experience with siteground although not 100% of my money was refunded but i got almost 80% while the rest was used to keep my domain name with them which is okay
Ervine, the Support Guy, is the best support staff I have ever met with. You will feel lucky to talk with him. Apart from that, SiteGround also provide best features which drag me out from Yahoo to them for Wordpress hosting. You can configure PHP parameters of your own domain and also have same speed for all locations around the world for whichever place you are hosting to. For example, if you are hosting from Singapore, your clients in USA will feel the same speed, which is not common in other hosting.
Great service; fast and reliable. My website issue was dealt with quickly and I felt as though I was in the hands of a technical whizz. Really useful at a time when my website had crashed. I've been using SiteGround for almost one year and the service has been excellent. It's the perfect solution for an amateur-blogger who has gone self-hosted and cloud based. I feel as though my site can now command a bigger space on the WWW.
I have some 20 Sites with Siteground and have worked with this group for 10 years. I am constantly surprised by how fast and efficient the support is. The team is both professional and creative. There has not been a single time in my experience that these guys handled my request poorly in fact they frequently save me from my own problems!
I've been a client with Siteground since 2013 and they provided a very good web hosting services as well as support. They're using Apache as web server for all shared servers and most people telling that Litespeed or Nginx is better but I still got fast server/speed with Siteground's shared hosting. With pure solid state drive we will get better input/output data write and my website load fast, I've tested on three speed testing site includes Pingdom, GTMetrix and Webpagetest and the loading time always under 5 seconds.
I never got and security issues with Siteground but I understand it's depends on many other things
The support is excellent, they have chat support, that is my favorite support platform. I've got free upgrade to next packages when my website growing to fast and they're helped me configuration my cloud hosting.
They just installed Let's encrypt SSL on all servers so I can easy to install free SSL for my commercial store too.
I really like Siteground and will stay with them
I like the efficiency of the customer support, cause I had to wait less than a minute. Georgi was really helpfull and the problem was solved in less than 10 minutes. In the firsts minutes we fix the problem and after few minutes the problem was solved. I had pleasure to ask some information about change domain name and the answer was kind and quick.
Thank you for the great support!!!!
My website is running fast and is well indexed by google. I have often needed support and it's always been a success. Responsive and skilled people at support. Very happy with siteground! :) SSL is working without any issues and recently SuperCacher (Cloudflare) was added for free under SSL. Great value for a competitive price. thanks.
This is best company in support category and all of their representative are extremely knowledgeable which makes their service quicker that any hosting provider.If you are not web developer and still have a website i think this is the company so final words this is best company till date.
- The support is fantastic both by ticket and live chat. They can handle technical difficulty for me at a breath.
- Siteground provide feature more or less similar to other hosting but the reason i choose here is the server relocation. from EU or USA or ASIA
- Pricing is similar to other hosting company
I cancelled my SiteGround account 10 minutes after I started using it.
After using the internet for 21 years, SiteGround is the first site that doesn't allow the user to create their own username. Instead, SG generated a meaningless username. I contacted their online support to be told there was no way to create a meaningful username. I had to ask for a supervisor because the tech I chatted with could not understand English. After repeating my questions 3 times, I escalated the chat to a supervisor. The Super let me know within 2 responses he was not interested in correcting the obvious issue. From my standpoint, this is crappy service. PERHAPS their support is good on tech issues, but I need a real human for support, not a robotic peon who can't follow a simple conversation.
I have been using Siteground for a number of years. Their support is excellent. All support staff are very are helpful and will work to resolve problems immediately and will help you to learn how to resolve things yourself. I would not use any other host as support is so important to me. Price and features are excellent and the dashboard and interface is easy to use. The actual hosting service is reliable and also excellent.
A very quick response to most questions needing answers or solutions. The support advice was quick, gave resolution on how to correct problems in a manner that was simple. The online response was quick and informative. I have had to rarely seek advice and support, but when needed too the help from SiteGround has been a very good timely response.
SIteground is very easy to use and navigate and their team is nothing short of professional. Whenever you're having issues they are quick to resolve and respond to them. This is ideal for people who use wordpress and blogspot and those who are not the most experienced but who love building websites and designing them. I really recommend it!!
Great queue time for support, I waited less than 5 minutes to get assistance. Staff was knowledgeable and able to meet my goals and help me save money to migrate my multiple gogeek accounts into a cloud account and also explained things to me. The pricing is fair for the service, which is great! I came from another hostprovider that took FOREVER to help me out, and gave little to no support. Glad I switched to siteground.
This is actually my first review about siteground.com and I just couln't be happier and VERY satisfied with this company. I started with godaddy approximately 10 years ago, until I reached a point of frustration, I just needed to find something better. Siteground, not only has a awesome customer service, they also have the best prices and features. They don't care if you have money or not, if you're a big company or small, they always give their customer the best service. As soon as I switched to SG I just couldn't believe I was using and considering other companies. I just love Siteground.

This company is amazing - yes, it rocks!!!!! I use them for everything I do and have brought much business their way! Easy to use and the customer service is top notch. Anyone looking for a great host, look no further! These guys do it all and I highly recommend Siteground to anyone!
I started using SiteGround services since 2010 and til date, it's being an awesome experience. Timely customer support service(s). Very courteous staff and moreso, they are very patient and they put the client first. The beautiful thing about what SiteGround offers is the up-time and reliability. Thumbs up guys! SiteGround Rocks
I have been using siteground for a year and just renewed for 3 more. Their support is superb. I have had some major issues and they worked with the theme developer to get my website up and running. When you call there is the basic 4 options that you choose from and then it is about a 10 sec wait to get a hold of a real person. Every person I have talked to has been very knowledgeable about what I needed. Definitely a breath a fresh air after dealing with Intuit.
Very high support level. Good servers and good up time. The price is not low but the service is high so the price is correct for the service they give. Many opensourse software and Joomla and Wordpress support is very good. I suggest them to host sites, ecommerce and blogs.
SiteGround is a great hosting company.
Personally I am very thankful to Penka B. and Dimitar Georgiev :)
They advice me how to configure my services with cPanel and to check them.
Just a great customer support!
I will recommend SiteGround.com as a best hosting service company !
Keep up with good performance guys :)
I have had at least 20 'support' chats from the Siteground team, and the experience has been uniformly excellent. Firstly, I have never waited longer than 50 seconds before someone comes to attend to me. Sometimes during a chat an answer will take longer than that, but usually because the rep is double-checking with a superior. Most importantly, I have never had any question brushed aside with a "we don't handle that." Even questions which are template specific get answered if the rep happens to know the answer. Having dealt with other companies where you can wait days for an answer, this is truly service on another level. I initially moved over to Siteground because reviews said they had good Joomla expertise, and within 6 months I transferred all my accounts here; the service simply outclasses the competition in every way.

A friend refered me to siteground.com and i have hosted one of my site with them all i can tell you is that their server is superb infact you will not encounter any server downtime, i a planing to buy a dedicated hosting with them and when i chatted with one of their customer care Svetoslav S. he gave me much pretier reasons to use siteground i enjoyed their customer service i consider it to be the best
I am a website designer and have more than 20 client sites hosted on SiteGround. That should tell the story! SiteGround is the best hosting service out there. Tech Support is fantastic, and my clients never have any downtime. The back end Control Panel is always up to date with lots of tools that are easy to use. I don't host my clients anywhere else.
Tech support is brilliant - first class in fact. spent long time sorting out what they probably see as basic issues with a chap called Atanas D, who couldn't have worked harder or been more helpful - am over the moon with the service, couldn't be more pleased and would recommend them to anyone
great service and fast turn around.
I'm migrating my website from Hostgator which offer horrible turnaround response time.
I'm running wordpress base site and hope to experience better service with siteground vs hostgator.
So far from all the reviews online and customer service during setup they are excellent.
i look forward to good experience with them.
Siteground definitely ROCKS. I've been with Siteground for over two years. The sales staff is friendly and very helpful. Account management is very user friendly. I rarely have technical issues and when I do they are resolved immediately. And best of all the Customer Service though live chat is AWESOME!!!
I was with GoDaddy and moved to SIteground, the service for the last 5 months has been immaculate. The service and support is outstanding, it really beats most of the fortune 500 services. I have not had any other issues, so am quite happy. The pricing is also decent though they should reduce their SSL rates I feel.
Siteground web hosting rocks!! I have been a customer of Siteground since 2009. I have used the Chat service on a few occasions. The wait time, using the chat service, is never more than a few seconds and I have always had my questions resolved by the end of the conversation.
They offer me a great support for all my sites: cityandluxury.com / mmsagency.com / smarteusa.com thanks guys for the great support.
I use siteground since 2006.
I have tested Hostgator, GoDaddy, Bluehost for other clients. All of them have ending transferring their projects to siteground.
No other hosting has such talented tech support. They have developed their own tools to make wordpress and joomla run faster.
Honestly I can not find the right words to describe my experience avoiding bubbling it.
I have been in this business since 1999, old enough to try several hosting providers from around the globe, I will not say anything about the service, most like there is enough competition in this wide market.
But, SiteGround Customer Support is almost near “Perfections”, I have never experienced such Professionalism, Dedication, Fast Response, Friendly and the most Important “Extremely Polite and Understandable”, you just need to try it yourself….
Last, fair enough to say their service and solutions are perfect and reliable…
Try it nothing to lose, trust me you will not reconsider your decision!
The SiteGround admin interface is nicely organized and intuitive. However, I must say that having the SiteGround Support Team available by Chat is INCREDIBLE!!! Everyone is prompt and VERY efficient whenever I need help. THIS is what sets SiteGround apart in my mind. In fact, I do not know why other providers seem to default as the WordPress preferred hosting provider ... once you get connected with SiteGround and their Support Team, there is no other logical option.
1. Instant communication via Chat
2. In most cases all issues are resolved in a period of 2 hours
3. Super fast servers on shared hosting plan as well
4. Free SSLs for multiple domains
5. CPanel with everything you need for your business
Do not hesitate to use them. It's a win win solution for your business
I am hosting with Siteground and see they're always get up to date latest security issues and technologies features, they're one of first HP apply Let's Encrypt SSL to all their server, you can now use SSL on all your site for free, working like premium SSL services.
Siteground also an expert company who can fully support Joomla CMS as well as code issues, I had a problem with my MOSETS tree component and even MOSETS author asking for extra payment to fix the issues but Siteground helped me solved without any extra money.
Uptime always height, I have installed a tracking code on my website and I didn't see any downtime last year, 100% uptime.
I wish Siteground will upgrade their system to pure SSD in the near feature, still loving them and continue use their great services.
A++ Siteground and I height recommend them
I changed hosting companies to Siteground and thought the deal the offered was reasonable so I changed over. During the next month I received an email through Siteground saying my website was shut down due to high traffic. They then stated if I wanted this service I would have to pay additional $85.00. I do not like the hidden cost and now I am looking for a new host!!
Site ground has been great. I've had for 2 months. Had support help me when I needed to give my developer access to our website. Not only did he tell me how to do it, he did it for me and gave me all the info to send to the developer. They logged in and got the site up and running. They are quick to respond on chat too. Great service.
I have been struggling to set up my website so that it is secure. Siteground has taken alot of the drama out of the process. I trust them and they give me a clean site every week. They cost a little more but it is worth it and their support /chat is efficient and fast.
I've been with Siteground since they have a Friend hosting package cost only ~$10/year, I don't remember exactly price but around $10. I use it for one blog and making $150/month with my Adsense account. That is the first blog and first money I made online. After a year my website god buzz with height traffic then I upgraded my hosting to next level and still hosting with Siteground until now.
I have more than 5 website of mine and clients hosting with Siteground at this time and total happy with their service, always height uptime, speed is good, rich features.
Love Siteground and continue to host with them to the end of life :)
I'm hooked! I have more than 9 websites running with Siteground. It's easy, it's fuss free and above all, their support team is JUST AMAZING! I like the way theyu have organised their products and services. You can updgrade your packages within minutes. Great job Siteground, I'll continue to spread the word! :)
Site ground really rocks, i love the fact that i can talk real time on the chat forum and get several technical issues address instantly. The technical/support team are doing a great job. Those who attend to visitors are friendly and equipped to handle issues. I also would wish that site ground would have unlimited services to customers who need unlimited space, etc. Thanks
I have always found SiteGround to be responsive to my concerns, and have not had any trouble with uptime, etc. I especially like the live chat feature, as it gives me personal assistance in working out any issues I may have. I think that their pricing is very good for what you get, and their customer service is superior.
I recently moved my hosting over to Siteground after hearing many positive things about them. The switch over was relatively easy, they took care of most of the move for me.
Several weeks into using my hosting I noticed that a sub-domain I used for development was showing errors. Something had gone wrong somewhere so I manually tried to move my Wordpress website.. but still this didn't resolve the issues. In desperate need on a Sunday night I spoke to support via chat. I wasn't expecting much help but I thought I would try. The person I spoke to via chat came up with several options and then asked me to open a support ticket and they can try and resolve it for me. Their response was brilliant and within 4 hours I had my website back up and running.
Never in a million years would I have expected support to respond so quickly over a bank holiday weekend. My old hosting company whom I had contacted earlier in the week seeking assistance for the same problem took 2 days to respond... and thats during a working week day!
I can see now why people rate Siteground so highly. With support like this, its clear to see they've got all bases covered. Its times like these where you need them the most, that they come out shining. Well done!
Just getting started with SiteGround after reading the "Top 5 Zencart Hosting Sites". I am SO impressed! Best startup support I've EVER received, bar none. Specifically, Wilkins Morales and Kalina Milusheva - they had all the answers, and they treated me very well, considering the newbie questions and errors I was lobbing at them.
Doesn't hurt that SiteGround has all of the tools I need, and installed ZenCart for me. That saved me a LOT of time. Highly recommend them.
The customer service was simply: THE BEST! My questions were answered promptly and with answers I understood and could act on. The friendliness was appreciated even on a late Saturday night! The value added service of free site transfer and fixing a file bug at no additional charge made the difference to me as well. Did not think I was in the buying mood when I contacted Chat Help. Way to go guys!
SiteGround has repeatedly proven to me before and after purchase that their customer and technical services are second to none. I've been in contact with them multiple time for various small issues and found them to be prompt at replying and knowledgeable about my issue. I moved all of my sites to SireGround last year after such a good experience with them and I haven't looked back. I plan to start my next (large) project with them under their cloud package.
I tried them to try out Joomla - I wanted to try a Joomla demo out and was recommended to them by Joomla Monster. I found it sucked to be honest big time.
Not sure where all the other reviews are coming from - I can't speak as to the actually hosting as I never really got that far - I signed up for the hosting with explicit instructions on how to trial a demo site using their hosting - only to be told that I was to be charged 40 plus Vat for the privilege! The free templates were awful and despite the apparent ease with with which you were supposed to be able to road test the demo - it was going to cost more than the lifetime licence of the template itself.
I have used many hosters over the years.. first foray with Joomla and therefore with siteground and I have to say - steer well clear of SiteGround.
I note that many reviewers have said how good they were for the inexperienced users - DON'T GO There if you are not experienced. I am experienced - if not with Joomla - and it was NOT good.
I cancelled the same day I started and it still cost me.. there are other providers out there - go with them not these. I am flabbergasted to be honest.
As a newcomer to site hosting, and someone who is quite computer illiterate - I was rather apprehensive about how this would go. Thankfully, Siteground's customer support were available to instantly help me with any issue, big or small that I encountered (of which there were very few). Additionally, their dashboard interface is super easy to navigate, even for someone who is brand new to site hosting. The packages are also well thought-out, and meant that I did not have to pay for features I did not need. Thank you Siteground for the wonderful service, and keep up the great work.

I am new to Siteground and have had many host companies since starting a web site in 1998. They are THE BEST I've ever had. Tech support is awesome, particularly like the quick reply time on chat. Tech support is always very knowledgeable but if they don't know they ask someone. Love this company! And I'm hard to please.:}
My email could send but not receive email after I transferred hosting of my site to Siteground. Dimitar quickly diagnosed the problem, took care of the email set up and gave me the settings that worked right off the bat with my email clients. Fixing the whole problem took less than 10 minutes. Siteground tech support is great!
Best overall hosting around. The support is top notch and the price is really good (for the first year at least, after that it goes up quite a bit, but you can always create a new account). I'm using their GoGeek plan without trouble and I'll probably get a custom Cloud Hosting soon. Their SuperCache feature is quite good, too.
There are so many web hosting companies, but I must say SiteGround is unique for its easy features and looking. I specially was in a free host company where I could use wordpress hosting features and site builders, I moved to SiteGround for its unique Wordpress Hosting Features.
Everything is very fine but the prices are little more than others, but Site Ground gives more features than others, so this price is exact I think.
Moreover, in hosting files, Security comes very first, SiteGround gives us that security , so without any tension, we can easily move to siteground. Wordpress Hosting starts from 6.95 dollars / month, this is starter package. There servers are very much effective, and loads in second, so there is no worry to have a big loading time, it is really very much easy to use. One can Upgrade the package after the buy, but after the period of expiry.
Those who are not a professional HTML coders, can also use sitegound's website building availability (I used in Wordpress Creator). So Just it is very much fine and I recommend everyone to use it, as it will be a good START.
Most of all, they have a very caring customer case, so don't worry to get any help, they will help you always.
Really Siteground is good. Try to use it.
The reason today I write this review is to say thank to Georgi D. from Siteground Hosting Customer Service, he is so helpful, professional, patience, polite, thanks much for his time and help for today. I am so trouble in my issue, but he is just so patience and helpful on helping me to settle my problem, thanks for the effort, Appreciated!
SiteGround has been an amazing find. Attractive cost and features make it very interesting. But, the support received so far has been exceptional! I used the on-line chat feature and interacted with a support technician who not only understood my issue, but quickly solved my problem. He then waited patiently while I implemented his solution to verify there were no more issues. A+
Every time I have a question, no matter how basic, this support team will ALWAYS help me. I really love how they are available to chat at any time of the day also. I've tried a lot of different hosting companies and I feel that this customer support is the best.
After being with another big name host that was really a joke, I had no idea that customer service and excellent products like this existed in the market. Doing everything myself without a web developer to help has been daunting - and seeing now that customer care DOES EXIST is the most incredible stress reliever. I'm excited to have a happy website and one that can accommodate all of members and visitors without crashing. Finally!!!
I had a problem with the admin panel which was not on the panel as described previously. Well my representative re-installed the wp and even went further to upload the content. He was very patient and provided communication each step of the way. In the meantime while I was waiting...He directed me to have a look at my website. The response time was good and I am thankful he went the extra mile. Thank God for Him. Great Service. Could not have been more blessed. Thanks SiteGround.
Siteground is the best. Always up to date with latest technologies and the support is AMAZING! I have never experience any trouble with them. Always friendly and cool. Been using them for many years now and never had to look for any other hosting company. Before I have tried many but none compare to Siteground. Can really recommend them.
Yet another experience with SiteGround support that validates my decision last year to move all of my domains and sites (about 20) away from my old provider. A client wants to take over the management of their own WordPress site onto their own SiteGround account (heard that before?) - I thought I would have to do all the legwork myself but a quick LiveChat with SiteGround support (less than 2 mins wait time to get a response), and I was told that SiteGround techs would be happy to help the client with restoring the site onto their own account - losing a client is one thing, but when they aren't technical enough to realise what they have to do to make it all work, it's a massive relief that SiteGround is there to pick up the process after it's left my hands. Good for my reputation, good for keeping my workload down, and good for the client. Highly recommended, yet again.
the best so far , i haven't got any issues yet
“Thank you so much for an excellent job It is clear that you took your time to personalize your plans especially grow big which im currently subsribed to, and I’m excited to make improvements. I appreciate your customer care, and the followup is helpful.thx alot
They do have some minor problems such as CPU seconds and such which when you start out is an alien concept, but their customer service is genuinely second to none, so helpful, so informed, genuinely I think there customer service is there best point. And if you ever worries about any issues or need things explained they will talk you through it in every simple and easy to understand language.
Running several Magento shops at Siteground. I have worked with numerous hosting providers but the quality and support of Siteground is better then all other hosting providers I have used! The live chat is fast, never have to wait longer then 10 seconds before there is a support engineer available. The support team has a lot of knowledge and hardly ever have to pass things on to the 2nd line support team. The hosting plans offer a lot of value for money, the hardware is up to date. So far zero downtime outside the announced maintenance window for a hardware upgrade. Is there room for improvement...... Yes! The manuals on the website are not always up to date! If Siteground spends a bit of time on updating the documentation I would rate them 10 out of 10 :)
Ivan provided quality service to me. I explained my problems to at least two other major web hosting providers and they all treated me like I wasn't suppose to be asking those questions. Ivan was very patient and explained the detail I wanted and left out the details I did not need.
Fantastic customer service!!
Putting people who aren't tecky first and treating them with respect.
Customer support is fantastic!
Please don't ever sell yourselves out like my previous host Hostgator did!
Customer support for me is the most important thing from any business.
You know when a business offers support of this calbre that everything else will come naturally and fall into place.
And news of a new data centre in London... What more could a man want?
As always SiteGround chat was very impressive and quick. My limited web knowledge was never an issue with the patience and efficiency of the Chat crew. My dumb questions were deciphered and answered in a language I could understand. I panic when something goes wrong and the Chat gently guide me through and resolve any issues. Thank you for being there much appreciated.
Been with siteground over 4 yrs now and no issues so far. I LOVE their tech support. All my friends and family know where to get their hosting service from. I been using the Grow Big hosting plan and so far 99% uptime. Many compare them to other hosting companies .. don't waste ur time. If you want cheap u will get cheap service.
I cannot recommend Siteground warmly enough. The support is outstanding, the staff members are helpful and nice, the technical stuff is absolutely first rate. I am thrilled with my web hosting, and the price is not to be beat. As far as I'm concerned they are the only ones to go with.
Great customer service and easy to use interface. Moved from GoDaddy to deal with better speeds/service for the price. They use CPanel, although not the latest interfact currently as of 2016 Feb, but it works great and was very easy to get it all set up and running. However, it will take 5-7 business days for the transfer of domain names to be completed, other than that, I am excited for this fresh start with SiteGround. Happy so far. Let's see how this year goes :)
I have had superb uptime,fantastic support from the chat team at Siteground at ALL Hours, receive constant updates on my website and can only say that I have gotten real value for money from my purchase! I was not expecting such returns when I made my purchase. All I can say is "Thank you SiteGround Team! Keep it up! :-) "
frankly speaking, the best of hosting company i have deal with. the best support service i ever had, the services outstanding. every time i have a question i get answer right a way with the best solution. I'M so happy to have my website with site ground.
thank you siteground
Efficient, awesome support service, always top answers, helpful and human at the same time.
I used their domain transfer service and the website transfer service, currently I host 2 domains at theirs and am very happy with anything I try.
I am not a big tech-guy, so finding valuable and quick help at ANY stage, from the beginning through the domain transfer to the website transfer was a big plus. Anytime again, they really rock!
I almost never need support from Siteground, but when I do, they are quick and give me the results I'm looking for. They support the latest technology like Free SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt and they helped me get everything secured in no time. I have several accounts at Siteground and I can't wait to open more in the future for my web design agency. Thank you SiteGround!
Site ground offers quick and easy support. They really care about solving your issue. They were prompt and courteous and eased my anxiety. I was freaking out but they calmed me down and got my site up again in less than 15 mins. Siteground offers a great value for the money. Better support than Bluehost
Love SiteGround support! Every time, the first person I chat with helps resolve my issues. Day or night, it truly is great to find a company that provides such high quality help, I never feel like I'm being given the run around. I didn't think high quality support existed anymore after dealing with Dell, ATT and Comcrap. HOW REFRESHING!! I recommend them to everyone, thank you Siteground,!
Every Time i need support because i'm a newbies, the chat Supports me excellent! Very helpful, quick and realy friendly! For me it work fantastic!
Also the cpanel is clear to understand. New Website Are done in Minutes. I think Siteground is realy good for all how need hosting from newbies to professional.
Thanks a lot and Greetings from Germany
Awesome Support! If you are looking for a great hosting partner, simply go for it. I've had use other hosting services in the past but nothing beats Site Ground. All my future business goes to Siteground. Thumbs up!
Whats more! I am super impressed with quick chat service and knowledgeable staff.
SiteGround is by far one of the best hosting sites and what makes them the best is the amazing support that they provide. They are prompt and courteous and when things go wrong, and they sometimes do, they are always there to make things right. Thanks so much for your help, SiteGround!
Ivan was extremely helpful, efficient, kind (he didn't make fun of my lack of tech knowledge) and - except for the tech disconnect - probably from my end - he stayed with me until I had what I needed. He answered all of my questions - almost before I asked them. And, he was extremely courteous.
Siteground is the best hosting! Their services always very fast and help me to solve all my problem. This time I use wrong plugin, and the plugin stop me to login to my backend to fix my website's problem. Siteground help me to solve the problem in less than 3 mins.
I started using Siteground last year, to be honest I can't remember why I choose them. They had a good promo at the time so it was only $95 for a year. While I believed it was a life time discount, I didn't think too much about it.
I run two wordpress websites that get okay traffic but due to all the features I run each website has about 30 some plugins, some more out of date than others. I also for a time ran a community forum which can be a resource hog on itself. I never however had any issues with them. In fact I think the first ticket I opened was about the billing when it came time to renew.
The price had gone up and I spoke with them about going monthly, which they do not normally offer, everything is by years with a special one time month trial but then switches to yearly after. After speaking with support they where willing to set up custom monthly links for me. They did everything they could to keep me on with them.
After a week of trying other hosts out that where far cheaper and offer much the same, I quickly realized they couldn't handle my hosting needs for such a large wordpress website that has been working for over 16 years now. As a result I decided to do whatever I could to stay at siteground.
After speaking with their live chat, they offer me a special discount, not to say they would offer this to everyone who comes crying with a sad story but how quick he was to help me out with what I had going on really says something about a hosting company.
Not to bad mouth any other hosting company but I've used all the big ones over the years and even some of the lesser known ones. Every time I had issues with this or issues with that. It's always a headache and after a year or so I move on. I always feel a good year will tell you how a host is. With Siteground, a full year with them and the only issue I had was a personal issues with how much month I had to personally spend. That should say something about them.
Great service, quick to response and they read what you say and don't come back with general comments like alot of other hosting support does. While service wise I've only used their wordpress hosting it's amazing.
Cannot say enough about Siteground's services and customer support. As a non-tech savvy website owner, I need help along the way especially when things need to be changed or upgraded. Siteground's chat service is worth the price of the services alone and my site's operation has been seamless throughout its first two years. Their services scale, they auto-renew if desired, and keep my time focused on my business and customers. Instead of trying to save a few bucks a month (if you even can) with another site, invest in yourself and your site(s) and know Siteground has your back for the long-term.
Surprised by all positive comments here ref siteground - not sure how genuine they are! My experience was:
- They promised stuff like WHM and CPanel being over a real SSL cert. It turned out that wasn't possible (once I'd paid for it) and suggested I access important information un-encrypted (was GOB SMACKED at their opinion here...)
- They heavily hide parts of the OS and parts of Cpanel and WHM. So you can't really control much.
- They totally remove any ability of stuff like "Site Transfer"tools - there's a free tool in WHM to transfer websites in minutes. Siteground have disabled this and instead ask you to pay £20 per website.
- A lot of other UK hosts charge £0 for transferring .co.uk domains. Siteground charge £13 for each domain
- Their backup facilities are limited (only have 7 day retention)
- Their backup facilities are limited (you can't access it - need to ask for support).
Generally I thought they were quite awful from my experience. That being said, if you didn't have a heavy use for a website and wanted maybe just 1 simple wordpress website hosted with them, it's probably suitable. They're definitely not suitable for large websites though or for people which want control over their system as - quite simply - they don't allow you control of anything, as it's easier to hide the controls and charge you for it all, each time, instead.
On a sidenote, can't complain too much about the support, most questions the response was just "It'd cost you" - but, that being said, they'd let me know this within 5-10mins of asking them how I access normal features I should be allowed to access. So response times were good.
Every time, EVERY TIME!, that I need support from SiteGround, I've get it within in less than a minute and my question is answered with valuable informations. Every time!, it's just amazing who fast and good you are.
After having tried severall other hosting companies, even if others can be cheaper, there is no comparaison possible for the support. SG is the best one.
Thanks SG engineers
I have been going through a process of transferring two complete accounts from another company to SiteGround, so that is two cPanels, And 1 site with an SSL one with a Cron job.
It has been one of the most painless experiences of my very long career in IT. After The first migration, I was informed that all was transferred but go check what I could find my self, all very clear and easy instructions, there were a few errors, I dropped my findings in a support ticket SiteGround identified the errors and kept me informed that they would completely start over new, I had nothing to do, had no extra charge and did not need to chase them up, they kept me informed, All good, all perfect and running lie clockwork.
I now have a VPS account and all my sites are super fast! I highly recommend SiteGround, their support is so fast it's untrue, click chat and in no time someone who actually knows what they are talking about helps you out, no 30 minute waiting time and having to remember your billing account login, what a pain that is and as a developer it is obvious why others do that, to try to get you to go look it up and avoid the support load..
I have also noticed that the GB's are what they tell you they are, So you do not get sold something and then get an email you are out of space, SiteGround sell you an honest package and you know where you stand.
I am an independent business owner and would recommend SiteGround to anyone.
Take a load off and get some peace in the hosting side of your business.
Siteground and the people behind who work behind the scenes there have consistently been more than awesome... They actually are very concerned with taking care of their clients and customers, instead of just getting through their shift. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone... (unless I wanted to do something horrible to them... then I would recommend them to Bluehost :D)
Love SiteGround - I stopped looking for a new host. SiteGround has all you can think of for a WordPress developer, full control with c-panel, boosting for your site speed and easy backend workflow. Fast and nice support and skilled tech support. With a Grow Big account you feel secure and future safe. So, stop looking around for the best host for WordPress, with their price tag it´s hard to find a better competitor. A lot of bang for the money!
Tanya was an excellent representative -- very helpful in getting me started in my site transition from inmotiion to siteground. I had a few issues. My website with inmotion loaded very slowly. My theme was not functioning well and I needed a new. In short, I needed a fresh start across the board. If the rest of the relationship is as good as it started, I'll be very pleased
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.
Excellent customer service while setting up and migrating my WordPress Multisite from a different host. They walked me through every step and was able to answer all of my questions no matter what time of day. Their dashboard is so much better than my previous host. Very happy I made the switch!
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.
At first i was skeptic about this hosting services because i read everywhere that they are a fantastic host provider.
I simply could not believe in it because i thought that it is just another Good Marketing Trick. But i decide to give it a try and this is my impressions:
(P.S No one say to me that i need to write a review. I am doing this just to say Thanks for their fantastic work )
They definitely provides the best hosting services for the best value.
They have a fantastic support, which are answering to your questions for a couple of seconds.
I am very positively surprised by their hosting services and support.
Would recommend for sure.
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.
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.
