Review | 1 year with siteground hosting!
In 2018, I bought website hosting for the first time with Siteground.com. The services I paid for was a start-up and I included domain privacy and Scanner. (P.S, you do not need to purchase scanner! There are free options to use)
All of that came up to $95.
You don’t have to do what I did, you can easily pay $63 for the domain name (if you don’t have one) and hosting.
Anyways, in February 14 2019, I had to renew my service. The price came up to $203! The reason for that is the cheap deals only last for 12 months, then after the year ends, the regular prices come at you.
I decided to take off the extra services and only pay for my domain name (soyvirgo.com) and the hosting.
P.S! Make sure to pay the annual fee up front, if you decide to do monthly payments, there is a hidden fee of $14.
Anyways if you want more information on that, you can read this post, How to set-up a site with Siteground hosting.
Siteground Hosting Review
I’m a blogger that isn’t great at explaining the tech side and benefits of a hosting service, so I will just give you a simple 1-5 star review of a few important topics.
☆☆☆☆☆ WordPress Compatability!
I worried a ton about transferring from a free hosted blog to my new domain. My mind was running and all I could think of was if everything would transfer or would I have to start back from 0?
Well the answer is NO! WordPress and Siteground make it so easy to blog and transfer everything whether you are self-hosted or using a different hosting service.
SiteGround will migrate your site for free, click here > website migration
It’s great okay, I mean there’s nothing bad to say here. If you do a quick search you will see comparisons of Siteground and other cheaper hosting and Siteground comes out on top. Right now I have problems with my site’s speed at times but that’s because I’m not sure if I’m properly compressing images and deleting cache. I still have a ton to learn!
So I already explained the cost of siteground and I think it’s great for a beginner domain + hosting plan buyer. The price was worth it for what they offer you. It’s a great price if you plan to gain attention and make money with your site.
☆☆☆☆☆ Customer Service!
So this screenshot below is of a review I left on this website called HostJury. I just wanted to leave a review so more people can trust SiteGround. The 4 1/2 stars was probably because I was being a baby since I didn’t like that they couldn’t help me with something I should have done on my own lol.
