Over the next three days I will explain why Siteground are without equal for web hosting.
There are 3 major reasons why I recommend Siteground as a web host. The following is the first reason and one that is so important to me – support!
I could never contact my last host – GoDaddy. The two support numbers just rang and rang and … rang! Eventually I had to go through Google chat and call a US toll free number. It took me hours to figure that out.
Siteground are beyond amazing in their support. You can call them, email them or use the impressive Live Chat system.
Disclosure: I am an affiliate for Siteground. I use them for 3 websites that I operate. They truly are #1 and I have tried four hosts before them.
HOW DOES SITEGROUND COMPARE TO OTHER HOSTS?

We asked each company 3 questions over their ticketing systems: one general, one WordPress related and one Joomla related. We averaged the first response time and the resolution times for each company base on these three questions.
