Starting a business is one the main task to perform and analyse before taking first step into it. You have to plan and act according to it to get every thing works smoothly as planed. But then also we have to always ready for critical conditions and sort out as soon as possible so they not effect on our business rankings.
As you working day and night to maintain your business and want to always on top notch, same way your website and its hosting should need better protection, services to perform well in internet/virtual world. If your customer can reach your website at any time then your business can get more sales, profits and more reach.
But what happen if your customers comes and find your website down over again and again, then he/she simply move to another website. Yep that’s happens mostly and low performing website results in a low user experience, and sites with low user experiences gets less promotion in search results. So your website have to be speedy, always up and protected.
So today i am going to share my one month hosting experience with SiteGround. After checking many hosting companies and their reviews but not able to decide where to go, as i am facing regular downtime from my previous hosting provider, this makes me frustrating. So after checking few more hosting i decided to go with SiteGround.
Many WordPress experts also recommends SiteGround hosting, so i thought there must be some reason they recommending them to their readers, so lets give them a try.
I must say that, their hosting service is awesome as described. They are quick to respond, awesome support team. My website is now much faster and you know what that i haven’t faced any downtime. totally impressed with SiteGround hosting. Great job team ((You Rock))
SiteGround offer various hosting services like shared hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers and reseller hosting. You can opt for any one you like or your requirement.
I opted for shared hosting which also has there more hosting plans to choose from. That’s seems to be interesting as every plan is unique and have listed some services which you get in very higher hosting plans. Let’s check out plans in details.
StartUp – Great Web Start
The StartUp Plan gives you all the essential hosting features you need to accommodate a “just getting started” website or an existing average-size blog, personal, or business website.
This Plan works well even for smaller online shops with a reasonable number of products. You will most probably outgrow this plan if you start attracting more than 10,000 unique visits per month on a regular basis.
GrowBig – Your Web Growth
GrowBig plan is designed to accommodate either a single more heavily-trafficked website or multiple average-size websites. This is a popular plan among customers who prefer to host all their sites in one account.
GoGeek – Real Web Geeks
GoGeek plan offers a completely different and more geeky server infrastructure with more powerful machines and fewer users. Additionally this plan is great for average-sized e-commerce websites because it can accommodate a much larger product line and also includes server PCI compliance!
So after checking all the plans, decided to go with GoGeek plan because as my website got lots of traffic, so this paln suitable for 100,000 visitors and have some more geeky advanced features like
- Less accounts on server
- Advanced Hardware
- Free PCI Compliance
- Preinstalled Git & Staging
If you have new to WordPress or just created your website which uses less resources then you may opt for other two plans and upgrade as your website grows.
