I Know My Sites Are in Good Hands With SiteGround Web Hosting
I decided to use SiteGround when a Set Up WordPress Site in One Day class I was taking recommended it. I was planning to start a new WordPress blog, and I wanted to follow the directions the teacher was giving us. That new blog is A California Life. I was so delighted with the customer support from SiteGround that I decided to move my oldest and most important site away from Hostgator to SiteGround. I still have a few sites at GoDaddy, but after the complaints I just read about them, I just may start moving those, too.
I’m very happy with SiteGround. I’ve never had any downtime during this few months I’ve been with them. I’m getting good value for my money. My sites are fast and safe, and customer and technical support have been superb.
My SiteGround Sites Load Quickly
My sites have lots of images and all have sidebars. My most important site built with WordPress has both pages and blog posts. Check out the speed at which Books to Remember loads for yourself. Since the home page is short, with few images, I’m going to send you to a page full of images: Marvin Terban and His Books.
A California Life is a travel blog, so it also has lots of images. Solving the Problems of Aging is my most neglected blog of my SiteGround hosted Blogs, so I’ll send you to my one post there so far How Family Members Can Support Each Other. Go ahead and test them for loading speed.
I Know My WordPress Site is Safe on SiteGround
When SiteGround learns about new WordPress vulnerabilities, it moves quickly to patch them at the server level. The SiteGround technical team quickly acted to protect customers from vulnerabilities in ImageMagick , for example. They also quickly patched a serious vulnerability in WPTouch, a popular WordPress plugin. SiteGround was also the first host to apply isolation to sites in a shared hosting environment.
I Left HostGator Because I No Longer Trusted Their Tech Support
After my satisfying experience starting my first WordPress blog at SiteGround, I decided to move my oldest site. I had started that site in 1996 as my bookselling site. It was long before WordPress existed, and I’d built it in FrontPage, which Microsoft stopped supporting years ago. The replacement for it frustrated me, and I wanted to concentrate on my business — not the software.
I finally decided to retire to affiliate selling instead of shipping out actual product to customers. I also made up my mind it was time to switch my site to WordPress. It was a 600+ page site. I had a copy of it in the software on my computer. I had good traffic at the time and I didn’t want to lose it, so I called the host, Hostgator.
We discussed the issues, and the support person assured me he would create a test site in WordPress for me to work on while the original site was still up. That gave me time to get some content on the new site before making the switch. He said when I was ready, I could call any tech person to make the switch from the test site to the real site. He didn’t mention any charge for this.
When I was ready to make the switch, I was informed it would cost $75 and take much longer than the first tech had told me it would. I was not a happy camper. It didn’t help that every time I called, I waited on hold for what seemed like forever. I no longer had confidence in HostGator.
SiteGround Support Amazed Me
I called SiteGround. I had seen a promotional offer which included free site migration from HostGator. The customer service rep answered the phone almost instantly and walked me through the process of setting up the new hosting plan. She then took over the job of transferring my site from HostGator — for free.
I now host four sites on SiteGround, but one is not live yet. I know if I ever have a problem, I can make a toll-free call to tech support and someone will pick up the phone fast. I won’t have to pay for a call like I have to for GoDaddy, which currently still hosts my older sites. I won’t have to listen to GoDaddy’s annoying music until they pick up, either.
Isn’t it about Time You Tried SiteGround?
Say goodbye to toll calls and long holding times for tech support. Rest knowing your website is secure. Celebrate fast page loading speeds when people visit your site.

If you only need one web site, I suggest you choose the StartUp Plan. I chose the GrowBig plan because it lets me host many sites on one account. See plan details here. Which plan will you choose?
