SiteGround.com is the web hosting company I recommend to all new clients. Their servers, with 100% SSDs (Solid State Drives) are significantly faster at delivering web pages. Their shared hosting plans are priced competitively and fully featured, with performance enhancements including NGINX servers, CDN (Content Delivery Network), HTTP/2 protocol support and PHP7. I’ll admit, that sounds like geek-speak; in layman’s terms it translates to blisteringly fast web page load times.
The consensus in my professional association, WIMP (Web & Interactive Media Professionals) was that SiteGround was the optimal choice (advanced technology, extreme reliability, ultra-responsive tech support) for non-enterprise business websites. My previous hosting company, which had been great for years, deteriorated over recent years, with servers slowing and tech support calls routinely incurring 20 to 40 minute hold times.
So, a few months ago, I migrated about 20 of my personal and business websites, as well as several client sites, from my previous hosting company to SiteGround.com. Since then, I’ve set up all new clients with SiteGround hosting. The experience has been smooth and trouble-free. So this is my personal recommendation.
If you choose to get a SiteGround hosting plan and use my referral link, http://www.siteground.com/recommended?referrer_id=7407240, then I will (full disclosure) get a month of free hosting.
