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.

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.

I have been with Siteground for over 10 years. I never had any technical or other issues with them. Their customer support has been very professional and highest standard. I would recommend Siteground to anyone who is looking for a fast and trouble-free hosting provider with excellent quality service.

Our hosting account was up for renewal. We discovered we could downgrade the account to a less expensive one because our hosting needs weren't as great as originally expected.. While the process was easy enough, I assumed that process included a payment for the new year. It did not; so you can appreciate my confusion and concern when I received an email stating that the hosting needed to be renewed for a new year - only 2 weeks after downgrading the account.

The Customer Service Representative was remarkably patient while walking me through all parts until I finally understand that the downgrade and billing weren't connected.
