Many people go for the cheapest possible hosting for their websites – which is a shame, because the hosting service you choose is the foundation on which your website is built. It defines how quickly your site loads, how consistently it loads and how stable it remains.
It’s the difference between building on a foundation of sand, or building on a foundation of rock.
We are affiliated with Siteground and, therefore, we do receive a small commission whenever someone buys from them based on our recommendation.
Over the years Abledragon has used a number of different hosting services (we went through 3 of them before finding our current provider).
That experience, and the experience we get through working with the hosting providers used by our customers, leaves us in absolutely no doubt that Siteground is the best provider, that we have seen, for hosting WordPress-based websites.
As we’ve said elsewhere, we at Abledragon offer our own hosting service. But we only host sites that we maintain under one of our maintenance packages.
To provide this hosting service we rent server space from Siteground.
However, should you not want to take up our maintenance service but still need top class hosting, then you can sign up with Siteground directly.
While you won’t benefit from our maintenance offering, you will be getting hosting that’s tuned for WordPress (which means that everything just works, consistently) and a level of support that’s second to none.
They offer a 30-day full refund if you’re not satisfied, so you have nothing to lose, really. And if you have an existing site, but you’re not satisfied with your current hosting company, Siteground will transfer your site across free of charge.
Definitely worth a look:
How to sign up with Siteground
The sign up process is very straight-forward:
Step 1 – Choose your hosting plan
SiteGround has three plans and you can sign up for any of them with a great discount through our affiliate link.
- The StartUp plan is perfect for people with one website that are starting now
- The GrowBig plan is a great value for money offer, including the option for multiple websites and the SuperCacher that greatly improves a WordPress website speed
- The GoGeek plan is perfect for people with e-commerce and larger sites, or more geeky development needs like staging and GIT integration
Step 2 – Choose your Domain
You can choose to buy a new domain, or sign up with an existing domain. (If you already have a domain remember that Siteground offers a free website transfer for new customers).
Step 3. Review and Complete
Unlike many other hosting providers Siteground’s advertised discount applies to any of the initial periods chosen during the sign up process. With many other providers the lowest monthly price applies only for the longest period.
