Siteground Review

Summary

​After many years jumping from hosting companies I have settled with the hosting company this website is hosted on, and that is Siteground.

SiteGround is considered one of the best web hosting companies out there. We will admit we were a bit skeptical at first, but that quickly changed so much that we moved all our sites over to them on their GoGeek plan.

Let us start with a review, so you have got a clear understanding of what Siteground has to offer with the Pro’s and Con’s (that is right no one is perfect.) Along with a video walk-through and step by step guide on how to get started with Siteground.

SiteGround has been voted the #1 WordPress host for two years in a row now (#1 in 2017’s poll and #1 in 2016’s poll)
