SiteGround Review: Speed, Price & Support Put to The Test! [2019]

This is a dog I actually have a dog in
this review yeah so for this SiteGround review I bought a SiteGround account
and set up a live test so I could monitor their performance real time just
so the information would be as up-to-date as possible let’s go over the
test results and the advantages and disadvantages of using SiteGround
starting right now to start my test I’ve created three
identical websites the only difference was the hosting provider for the tests
I’ve used SiteGround, Bluehost and DreamHost
all three officially recommended by WordPress so I installed WordPress on
all three websites using automatic WordPress installers that each web
hosting provides and once my websites were up and running I’ve closely
monitored the speed performance and downtime here are the results
SiteGround was the fastest out of all three and not just in the United States
when using SiteGround you can expect your website to load exceptionally fast
all around the world SiteGround scored an A+
while DreamHost and Bluehost were not that far behind both scoring an A
however I did experience some stability issues in the last 24 hours
my SiteGround web site was down four times in total only for around three
minutes but Bluehost and DreamHost did not have such issues overall SiteGround seemed to be the fastest web hosting out of the ones that WordPress
recommends especially if you’re planning to go international but you might
experience some short down time periods well at least I did but this sort of
thing is always the luck of the draw and these results aren’t actually that
surprising SiteGround is the most expensive option out of all three so we
would assume they’re running better hardware that’s more expensive and more
tailored to your servers well talking about price let’s see how much exactly
side round is going to cost you but before we continue I would like to share
something with you during my videos I often mentioned that my work is
supported by affiliate commissions but what exactly does that mean
well if you as awesome as you are purchase a service using the links in
the description below as a thank you for bringing a new customer the hosting
provider will pay me a commission and as a bonus for supporting me
the hosting provider will give you a discount it’s a win-win-win situation
you get a discount I’m able to give honest reviews and support my channel
and the hosting provider gets a new client and that is precisely why I ask
you to use the links in the description below okay now let’s talk some
SiteGround prices the cheapest plan with SiteGround will cost you 3 dollars
and 95 cents per month but it’s actually a one-time payment of 47 dollars and 40
cents and you’re able to use their services for one year if you also want a
domain name for your website that will cost you an extra 15 dollars and
95 cents so that’s a total of 63 dollars and 35 cents you will be able
to host one website with 10 gigabytes of SSD storage space register your own name
and make your website secure using an SSL certificate is this cheap or
expensive I hear you’re asking well technically because anyways this is
spiraling out of control so let’s just compare site ground to Bluehost and
DreamHost in terms of pricing for a one-year hosting plan with an SSL
certificate and a domain name Bluehost will charge you $49 and
DreamHost will cost you $47 dollars so here’s a fun fact this is a
dog I actually have a dog in this review yeah and another fun fact is that I
actually have a Bluehost review as well they can check out right there he did
not look like he enjoyed that at all but okay let’s let’s focus you what are the
differences between the different plants that side round is offering their
cheapest plan will only allow you to create one website while the GrowBig
and GoGeek plans allow unlimited websites GrowBig and GoGeek plans are
also better suited if you’re expecting more visitors to your website the extra
resources that these plans offer will make sure your website won’t slow down
if a lot of people are browsing at the same time
one of the biggest differences is that according to SiteGround
GoGeek offers twice the computing power that other plans are offering and is
used by ten times lower the number of customers so if you’re looking to buy
web hosting based on price alone I would say that SiteGround
offers the best bang for your buck yeah you will be paying a little bit more
here and there but you’ll be getting a premium quality service also very
important a huge disclaimer alert these prices are only before renewal also I
just really wanted to use this background What is great about SiteGround
is that unlike most hosting providers you get to choose where your server is
located they have two in Europe one in Asia and one in the United States of
America by choosing a server that’s closest to where the majority of your
website visitors will be from you’ll make your site load even faster
SiteGround also offers free website transfers with
their GrowBig and GoGeek plans so if you have a website hosted with another
provider one of the SiteGround experts will take care of all the technical
details and transfer your website to SiteGround free of charge unrelated but
equally important is the fact that SiteGround is actually a independent company
meaning they have more control over the prices the features and the quality
they’re giving you for you as a customer this is always the best possible deal
we’ve covered some of the points that make side ground great to use but it’s
not all sunshine and rainbows let’s dive deep into some downfalls that come with
using SiteGround right off the bat if you’re planning to store a lot of files
on your website do not use SiteGround even with the most expensive plan you’ll
only get 30 gigabytes of storage space just as an example
Bluehost gives you 50 gigabytes with their cheapest plan even ten gigabytes
is perfectly fine for a media heavy web site but for file storage there is
definitely better options available out there and another huge flaw is their
renewal prices after your initial plan with SiteGround expires renewals will
cost you three times as much so you’re incentivized to buy
your plan for a long period of time to delay the renewal as much as possible
for example if you buy the middle plan which is GrowBig for three years the
first payment will be $214 but once that three
year plan expires your next payment will be $718
remember you can get the best possible prices and help support my channel at
the same time by using the links in the description below since SiteGround is officially
recommended by WordPress all of the wordpress integration is as easy as you
might expect SiteGround will set up WordPress on your hosting account
automatically and you’ll be able to fully customize your website using
themes and plugins creating a website is as easy as it gets no coding no
technical knowledge needed only a dedicated website builder like Wix or
Weebly would make it easier and as a matter of fact Weebly comes
pre-installed with SiteGround so you’ll able to use all of the templates and
drag and drop features that Weebly has to offer completely free of charge to
put it simply SiteGround is a one-stop shop for website creation you’ll be able
to go from not having your website at all to something that people can visit
online in like 15 minutes and if you still get stuck somewhere SiteGround has
a support team that’s actually famous at how good they are let me show you an
example SiteGround spared no expenses or manpower when it comes to their
support team you’re able to get help through phone email and chats
all of which reply pretty much instantly phone support takes around one minute
and you’re already speaking to an actual person chat support consistently
responded in less than a minute and the answers provided seemed like I was
chatting to people that actually know what they are talking about and if
you’re interested in the full support evaluation we actually did that you can
find the full evaluation at the hosting review website I’ll put the links down
in the description below I would recommend SiteGround to anyone who
expects having users from all around the world not just United States and values
a high-performing fast website my name is Emit with the
hosting review team and I wish you luck in your web hosting adventures
