One of the best jewels in the hosting crown, is a company that can boast amazing ranks and excellent performance. If there is something worth recommending in the industry, as of this moment, SiteGround definitely falls into this category.

It is an American hosting company with headquarters in Bulgaria, Sofia. According to Wikipedia, SiteGround was founded in “2004 by a few university friends”. At the moment it is one of the largest web hosting providers out there.

High satisfaction rate, affordable pricing, great features, and amazing customer support make it one of the few companies that can be called nearly perfect.

Ranking websites place high, and positive reviews flood their pages. And to this we have little to add but to agree.

Report for 2018

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • SiteGround is #5 of our top 2018 providers. Its rating is 9.5; relatively good uptime and response time were the factors that contributed greatly to this result.
  • The company (though not always showing 100% uptime) was mostly stable and never got lower than 99% uptime.
  • It also had very stable response time (mostly 500ms – 600ms), which stayed in this very range from June to December 2018.
  • The company was continuously growing the number of domains and Shared IPs that host them. By its growth rate, it can be concluded that all the company’s promotional campaigns have so far been fruitful. However, if you come to think about it, their performance quite justified their advertising.
