SiteGround and us, The Begining.

Once we settled on our theme of This Boutique, we began the pain of searching on a very cheap host, since we were almost broke, We didn’t care much about reliability or availability of the host. As we know, its a luxury comes with expensive hosts.

We reached a phase where we were comparing between SiteGround and 2 other hosts. Straight after reading several reviews, several personal opinions, even a conjecture helped us settle on SiteGround and give it a shot.

Within the first month, it was hard to go around on their cPanel and guess what is where. But once I figured it out, I realized that straight filling in love with the Staging systems, the well-educated support agents, and the daily backups.

SiteGround and us chosen each other.



What ? all that and more for only $3.99/month?

I know, its really good deal. with more features than i looked for.

Staging systems

siteground-staging-vintiqa

yes, some call it a developing environment, you can test all that you need before pushing into the live site with literally one-click.

you can have infinite staging systems features if you have a developing team working on various versions of your site.

Backups

It’s one of the best features I liked in SiteGround; it’s a super easy and straight forward process.

just hit a button, and all backed up or hit another button on any backup selection, and it’s fully restored.

Customer Support.

Its all-time favorite feature to me. The Support Team are a very knowledgeable team, so friendly and knows what they are doing. They mostly headshot the problem from the first go, no room to try this or try that. At least for the 55 times, I needed their help.

What we did NOT like in SiteGround

Ofcourse there is nothing perfect, but its sometimes annoying to ruin your whole fancy meal just because you added too much salt, right ?

Prices

First of all I did NOT like paying annual, why there is no monthly plans ? Also the prices after the first year, its like more than triple initial year cost. as example, I signed up for GrowBig plan which is $5.95/mo, but the second year cost $19.95/mo. I feel it was like a trap, but we all felt for it whatever the reason was.

cPanel

Its as any other cPanel, confusing, takes some time to get used to.

So how did they really helped me?

Well, you do not need to be super smart or a web developer to use their service, it’s as simple as that, just small knowledge and you will be fine.

As we know by now, if you stuck on anything, It is”Post to Chat” button and in a couple of minutes, the problem solved.

You will never regret the experience. that’s why they have the 30 days money back option.

Hope this helped you develope an idea about what you will experiencee on SiteGround.
