SiteGround Review – Pricing like Apple
Their hosting plans start out with really cheap discounts. They have several deals – each of which functions like a SiteGround coupon code – only you don’t need to activate any of them. They’re applied automatically to the first year of your subscription period. After that, the renewal price is the full undiscounted amount. That bit’s important, so I’ll say it again:
There are no SiteGround renewal discount coupons!
SiteGround Review – Plan Structure
Compared to other hosting provider’s SiteGround’s hosting plans are simplicity itself. They don’t confuse you with a ton of options and confusing names. For their shared and WordPress hosting, they have just three tiers:
They use the same plan structure over and over. In fact, there is no SiteGround VPS server plan! Instead, the link you see to VPS servers in the table point you to the GoGeek plan, which is suitable for 100,000 monthly visits.
I’ve often called SiteGround the “Apple” of hosting providers. Their choices are limited, but solid. If you want more options and more choices, then I suggest InMotion hosting. You can read my comparison of SiteGround vs InMotion here.
Any more than that, and you’ll need a dedicated server. It’s actually a managed VPS solution that they call “Semi dedicated hosting”. It indicates that the GoGeek plan will provide you with the same performance of a VPS. Quite a boast!
This SiteGround hosting review will show off some of the features available to not just the GoGeek plan, but others as well.
