3 main reasons to choose SiteGround for your Small business web site hosting!

1 – > SPEED

A. Siteground is Faster

Site load time has become an important SEO ranking factor. Search engines strive to present searchers with relevant content from sites with improved user experience. Slow loading sites are absolute waste of time and one of the main reasons for slowness is server configuration.

While the industry average loading time is about 4,7 sec, Siteground loading time without cache is 1,7 sec and 1,3 sec with cache.

Pingdom was used to test the loading time of identical WordPress websites hosted on the 12 different hosting companies. The faster loading result for SiteGround was achieved with the SuperCacher switched on for the website.

B.  Siteground can handle more traffic!

My first site was hosted in 2004 and since then, I have worked with many hosts. One of the main issues I face with shared hosting is the limited capacity to handle traffic. Once your site on shared server begins getting popular, you start facing server errors due to number of site requests from your growing traffic.

Apart from testing loading speed, another test was done (with the help of the Siege testing and benchmark utility) to find out how many hits can be successfully handled in two minutes by each of the 12 accounts with the same test WordPress website.

While the industry  average hits handled is 2852, Sitground (without cache) triples to  8276 and can handle over  over 230 000 hits with cache

 Let’s see these stats in image…

If you’ve been online for some time now, you’ll agree with me that security is another thing that highly demands the attention of everyone with an online presence – website owners, email users, social media users, etc

Now, your WordPress Site or Joomla website is highly at risk if it’s not hosted on the server where security is treated at high priority. Any Small business web site hosting service must be able to assure its users of stringent security 24/7.

Here is why you should consider SiteGround …

A. Hack Protection

A test was conducted on WordPress and Joomla related vulnerabilities announced publicly. On all 12 tested hosts both vulnerability were still exploitable with no problem while at SiteGround both were patched on server level at SiteGround in up to 48 hours after their public announcement.

B. Account Isolation

SiteGround was the first to implement a unique mechanism that isolates server accounts from each other. In effect, their isolation technology prevents a single vulnerable account from affecting the whole server.

This revolutionary approach makes SiteGround shared hosting environment as secure as the much more expensive dedicated solutions.

Nowadays, most of the shared hosts apply similar techniques but it is still possible to see an environment that is not properly isolated.

In my opinion, customer support should be one of the core points to focus on while looking for a small business web site hosting service for your WordPress blog or Joomla site. As a matter of fact, this applies to any business online.

While the price tag most often seems to be attracting a lot more attention, it will be practically worthless to pay low for a web hosting service with poor customer service.

Whatever the case, there are going to be issues that  necessitate support attention. How quick and qualified customer service is determines the strength of your service.

As the testing exercise continued to locate the best web hosting services with the best customer service, quite impressive differences were found:

For Phone calls, while SiteGround picks up almost immediately,

  • 4 companies had over 10 minutes wait time.
  • Only 2 other companies picked up immediately.
  • 90% of the hosts do not have non-US phone line.

For Live chat, while SiteGround solves the issue in 5 minutes,

  • 2 of the tested companies have no chat support!
  • Avg. wait time on chat before pick up: 10 min.
  • Avg resolution: 21 min.
  • Only 4 hosts solved the issue in under 10 minutes

For support tickets, SiteGround’s first reply is in 8 minutes,

  • Average Industry first reply near 8 hours.
  • Only 2 companies are below 1 hour.
  • No other company is below 10 minutes!

Note that the test was conducted in 3 different areas (Only SiteGround and 4 other companies resolved all the three issues):

  1. General service issues
  2. WordPress related issues
  3. Joomla related issues

How long did it take to resolve an issue?

Here is a table that clearly shows you SiteGround’s speed is solving your web hosting problems!

During the test, 3 questions were asked each company over their ticketing systems: one general, one WordPress related and one Joomla related. This table was averaged from the first response time and the resolution times for each company base on these three questions.

  • If you are already hosting somewhere, you get a  free transfer of your Existing Account by WordPress experts
  • No downtime. That means your site will be completely moved without anyone noticing errors or blank pages

  1. Hi Enstine,

    Thanks for the detailed review. I would like to try them out. I have a website maintenance business and we do provide hosting as well. This seems like a good option. The next time I have any hosting needs, I’ll probably give them a shot. I have heard of SiteGround before as well and several other people have recommended it to me. This was a good read.

    Thanks once again.


  2. Recently I have noticed all popular bloggers recommending SiteGround. After reading lots of reviews online I myself tested their web hosting and found they offer an industry leading load time. Their uptime also comes out to be good. They are less popular than Bluehost or Hostgator but I must say they offer one of the best web hosting services. Nice review Enstine. You covered up almost everything in your review about SiteGround.

  3. Is the offer currently available. I want to buy new hosting and domain for my new website related to business. Please let me know. I will buy hosting for 3 years and also register domain for a long time. But the hosting should be reliable and cheap with cpanel.

  4. Hello Enstine,

  6. Yes this is very good article and it has most important information.
    you have great list I have seen and thanks for sharing this valuable article.

  7. I’ve been using SiteGround for ages now. I use it for my small blogs. For my more popular sites, I prefer using a VPS from KnownHost. What I like about SiteGround is their support and eagerness to solve the customers’ queries.

  8. very good article,
    Maybe SiteGround is good for my website . Previously I ‘d like to rent at HostGator but after I saw the price I undo my intention . My site is still new I think you should start small at first.
    Thank you for the information very useful .

  9. Hi Enstine. thanks for sharing this information with us. 4ukhost’s Reliable Web Hosting keeps your website up and running. Featuring 99% up-time guarantee and 30 days money back guarantee with 24/7 tech support!

  10. Very nice article. This web hosting seems great. Very Good package with affordable price. Thanks for sharing this great web hosting with us. I will share this web hosting with my friends also.

  11. I’ve already used SiteGround on few of my blogs and I must say I was happy with their features. Unfortunately once I stuck into a major downtime issue with them and they couldn’t help me in the right time and they lost a customer.

  12. Thank you for well articulated information. I like siteground too because of its personalized security on CMS. Hacking Joomla while your site is hosted on siteground servers is not easy unless you haven’t put some basic security features like strong password.
    For me

  13. Hi Enstine,

    I’m dreadfully late to this post because…. my site got badly hacked, my backups wouldn’t reload, and I have wasted a whole week waiting for slow and inept customer service from one of my existing companies.

    I have sites spread across 3 different hosting companies because I’m not totally happy with a single one of them. However, credit to Hostica who give very good support (rarely needed, because the sites run fairly trouble-free, and they are working hard to resolve my issues (which are only to do with getting ManageWP going).

    My burglar alarm went off at an unholy hour this morning and gave me some extra time in my day and I found this review. And SiteGround has a UK phone line too – wow, time to pick up that phone!

    Thanks Enstine, you may have saved my sanity. I’ll let you know what happens!


  14. Many Blogger friends told me about siteground hosting and also i read few article about it. But I does not feel satisfied because of incomplete Information provided by them
    Estime you have cleared almost all my doubts …

    Thanks for providing a detailed review …

  15. This is great business revelation by Enstine Muki.I blog with platform.All my blogs are on Blogger.Though I have tried one or two time(s) to install WP,but it wasn’t a success due to the guy hosting my blog.He lot of hanky-panky with my WP blog then,and I became discouraged.But, I feel following Mr.Muki’s idea will be something favorable this time.Thank you,Mr.Muki.

  16. Almost two months I’m still confused to choose new hosting for my site and I need new review about site hosting, and finally I find a recent post from you telling me what hosting that I can choose. It is such a great information that I’m looking for along this time. Perhaps I will consider for this hosting.

  18. Very informative post, i was not aware of SiteGround till i read your post, i can now recommend SiteGround for people who are asking me for small business hosting service


  19. Hello,

    Well I’m still looking for a reliable VPs hosting, does they provide VPS service. Or siteground can handle 15000 PV per day?


  20. Hello bro,
    Some months back, i tried joining siteground but their bill was a bit high. Then they do not offer free domain name. Good for then to add such features now.

    Thanks for holding such a smooth review. Do have a lovely weekend ahead…

  21. Hi Enstine,

    Another awesome review. I am familiar with siteground and their awesome support. When I shared about their Easter offers, I made three sales and three of those had become my clients. I handle their accounts. From my experience, I would say siteground’s support is excellent

    PS: It is a very good review 🙂


  22. quite good information Enstine.
    The article includes quite good offer. But I’ve a query that Can we choose only free domain option or is it valid with Siteground hosting ?

  23. Awesome review, explained everything in a detailed manner. Well currently I’m not looking for hosting but will surely consider your recommendation.


  24. Hi.. I know you always have a way of delivering on the good things bloggers need.,i believe on myself and my challenge that i have to become a PRO Blogger and that’s why i am investing on my Dream. But it’s now really hard to pay that amount of money. I will try out this from next month And i will share my experience with you… 🙂

  25. Hi Enstine, Nice Review and good info about siteground. Would look forward to their service in future as am not ready to leave where I just joined last week.

  26. Hello Enstine, Thanks for your this post. Really this post is really helpful for me. To be honest i am paying 25$/monthly for my Hosting and i am not getting more then 10000 Traffic for my Blog as well you know that i am newbie And I am not earning any single money now. So it’s really hard for me. But i believe on myself and my challenge that i have to become a PRO Blogger and that’s why i am investing on my Dream. But it’s now really hard to pay that amount of money. I will try out this from next month And i will share my experience with you.

    Have a Good Week End

    • Hey Tonmoy,
      The error most of us commit is start paying for huge unnecessary resources. If your blog does not require that much yet, I recommend downgrading and then upgrading gradually as your blog grows.

      Fortunately enough, SiteGround tech guys are expert who can take you through the process with no headaches.

      Will be excited to hear your experience in a month’s time bro
