Reseller plans are fully-featured with advantages, like: unmetered data transfer; free email accounts; unlimited MySQL databases; free Cloudflare CDN; unlimited FTP accounts; free daily backups. Cloud options are based on innovative technology and therefore, these are fully-managed servers performing at ultra-fast speed.

SiteGround provides SSD drives for Shared hosting and Cloud hosting plans. They also use NGINX server speed and this is available for Shared, Cloud or Dedicated Servers. Another speed optimization facility is the company’s own caching mechanism based on NGINX reverse proxy and called Geeky SuperCacher. Their free CDN is also a great advantage for customers, as it helps their websites speed faster. SiteGround uses HTTP/2 enabled servers and PHP7 as well, which are top speed technologies.

Activity on their Blog is pretty frequent. The latest articles approach various topics, from news and tips to promotions and services.

As a global presence and trying to target more local countries, Siteground has few more localized websites like: (for Spain) (for UK) (subdomain used for Italy)

😁 Quality Reliable Affordable Hosting
I've used SiteGround for 13 years. Over those years, they've changed a decent bit, some of which bothered me quite a bit at the time, but they've still kept the core essentials there, and they've made some decent improvements in some areas. Although I remember being quite bothered about some of the changes, I only remember one of them, which is that they got rid of the option to use email when requesting support, but even that issue I've decided I don't mind much that they've changed. Their support is always of impressively high quality and prompt. I'm not really sure how they manage to afford such capable support given what I pay them. There's not been a single issue they've been unable to resolve for me, and I've thrown a decent number of curve balls at them. So, as long as nothing major changes, I intend to continue with them for the foreseeable future.
