Over the years I’ve used a bunch of different hosting companies, as well as dedicated and shared hosting servers.

Recently I’ve moved the association website, this site, to SiteGround and it was a good move.

It was previously hosting at Hostgator using their shared business plan. It turned out to not be a good choice.

best website hosting companiesThe move was prompted by (a) long waits on hold for technical support and (b) front-end slowness (i.e. poor visitor experience).

Edits and updates to WordPress seemed unusually slow many times.

Moving your hosting doesn’t usually make your “fun list,” but slow loading websites are also the #1 reason people leave websites.

After a few months with SiteGround, and multiple interactions with their support team, both on the phone and via their online chat, I can confidently recommend SiteGround for your website hosting, including WordPress website hosting.

If your website is a critical variable in your marketing and sales process, sign-up for the “Geek” level. It offers a few extras that will help you optimize your site. In my opinion, the “Geek” level is definitely worth it and includes:

  • Free site migration (yes, they’ll move your website from your current hosting server for free!)
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Free daily backup
  • Fewer shared hosting accounts on your hosting server
