There’s a better way to host your Wordpress site

I got tired of poor quality hosting services for my clients so I decided to find the best.

Being a web developer it's normal to have a lot of clients requesting Wordpress work. Usually I get a lot of customers asking about which is the best hosting provider and sometimes I get others saying that they got a hosting service when they purchased their domain. At some point all of them had troubles with thier previous or current hosting services and they all do the same question.

“My WordPress site is slow on XYZ hosting (usually an EIG company). Who is the best host?”

Because of all those customers asking me the same question over and over again I decided to test all major Wordpress hosting providers in order to find the one that provides the best service that would avoid me a lot of troubles in the future. After spending a few months researching and testing I found one that fits into the main client requirement which is, being cheap but at the same time reliable and fast.

Funny thing about this is that the answer had always been under my nose and I didn't see it. Being a huge fan of managed WordPress hosting provider like, WPEngine or Kinsta which are quite expensive and require some level of commitment in order to convince a client to use them, something I've been able to do with some smart talking and expertise, because of that I've never thought about looking around and see what other companies were doing to compete with them. After checking around I found that Siteground is doing a greate job trying to compete in the managed WordPress hosting area so I decided to investigate a bit deeper and here is what I found!

If you look at the Facebook polls, SiteGround was rated the #1 host for Wordpress hosting providers.was rated #1 for 3 consecutive years in Facebook polls taken in 2018, 2017, and 2016. They were also ranked #1 in another Facebook poll (and yes, yet another poll as well). SiteGround almost always gets the most name-drops and positive testimonials.

Over 350 people voted who are knowledgeable about WordPress hosting. They were also rated #1 in numerous other polls by various WordPress Facebook Groups. Here are some screenshoots of those polls.

Between their amazing support and speed technology that got my client's Wordpress websites loading in 200ms in Pingdom and .5s in GTmetrix, plus tons of features you can see on their StartUp vs. GrowBig vs. GoGeek comparison chart.

the fact they’ll migrate you for free with 0 downtime and have a 30-day money back guarantee. – there is literally no reason not to try them out.

I’ve been with SiteGround for 3+ years and I recomend it!

I’ve got to give it to @SiteGround, really good transfer service and fraction of the price of @wpengine, with and instant boost on speed, I’m sorry to leave @wpengine but the service and quality had declined to the point where it doesn’t justify such a high price...
