A couple of months ago, we were just like those new kids on the block. Starting out with just a handful of ideas to start a blog.As we progressed, we realized blogging requires a whole lot of technical skills to make it. Something we were not too prepared for. We went high and low searching for that perfect blogging platform which will not keep us awake at unearthly hours trying to fix up a technical glitch all on our own. We got lucky after some looking around and FINALLY settled for our blog with SiteGround. Our personal experience with them has been a breeze!
To understand “how”, let us embark on a comparative analysis with twelve of the most popular web hosts!
HOW DOES SITEGROUND COMPARE TO OTHER HOSTS ?
The results on this page are based on tests with real accounts on 12 of the most popular web hosts : Bluehost, HostGator, iPage, Fatcow, Justhost, AsmallOrange, InMotion, WebhostingHub, Arvixe, GoDaddy, GreenGeeks and A2Hosting
Let us now test SiteGround on three major parameters are Speed,Security and Support.
Loading speed: SiteGround loads websites faster!
SiteGround has used Pingdom to test the loading time of identical WordPress websites hosted on 12 different hosting companies. The faster loading result for SiteGround was achieved with the SuperCacher switched on for the website.
Performance speed: SiteGround can handle more traffic!
Apart from loading speed,the number of hits that can be successfully handled in two minutes by each of the 12 accounts with the same test WordPress website was also tested. The test was done with the help of the Siege testing and benchmark utility. The higher number of handled hits by SiteGround was achieved with the SuperCacher switched on for the website.
Hack Protection: SiteGround keeps your site safe!
Here is a statement issued by SiteGround:
“SiteGround tested a WordPress and Joomla related vulnerabilities that are announced publicly more than a 1 month before the test. On all 12 tested hosts both vulnerability were still exploitable with no problem. At SiteGround both were patched on server level at SiteGround in up to 48 hours after their public announcement: WPTouch vulnerability patch and Virtuemart Vulnerability patch”.
Account Isolation: SiteGround guards you from your neighbors
SiteGround is the pioneer in applying effective account isolation mechanisms to the shared hosting environment. Nowadays, most of the shared hosts apply similar techniques but it is still possible to see an environment that is not properly isolated.
The 24/7 chat support that SiteGround boasts of is 100% true to the best of my knowledge and belief! We have not gone through a wait moment until now. SiteGround picks up a call almost immediately.
When you call on the phone you usually have a pressing issue. Having your call picked up immediately is really important. Unfortunately this does not happen everywhere.
Chat: SiteGround solves any hosting related issue in 5 minutes!
SiteGround contacted the LiveChat of the 12 tested companies. SiteGround recorded how much time was needed for the issue resolution including the wait time before the chat was picked up.
They are one of the most popular and highly rated hosting companies out there, yet still affordable.
What struck us the most was the fact that the biggest group for SiteGround are people who have already tested a couple of companies!
Do we need to say SiteGround is affordable? For less than what you would normally spend a dollar more or less on one Starbucks coffee a month, you really get world class WordPress hosting with stellar support.
COMPATIBLE WITH 2G SPEED ON MOBILE INTERNET
The second most important thing is, “it has this indigenous tool which will open your website even in a remote area, with as less as 2G mobile speed”.
We recently got to experience this while we were travelling; we experienced spotty and at times weak internet connection. SiteGround stood the test with the latter.
Thus summarizing, take a look at the some of it’s attractive features:
- Unlimited data transfer

- Low pricing

Data storage is limited (20-30 GB). (Usually a normal WordPress blog doesn’t require more than 2-3 GB disk space).
Except this, there isn’t any other limitation that we have come across until now.
