The professional team behind ADVANEWS has produced and managed websites for many years. During that time we have used a number of web hosting companies, but the one we recommend most enthusiastically now is Siteground Web Hosting (affiliate). Let us tell you why we love Siteground so much and recommend it for both individuals and small businesses.
- Outstanding Service– Tired of having trouble getting a response from your current web hosting company? SiteGround’s service is so fast and complete it is sometimes amazing. Often when we tell them we have a question or problem, their support team not only responds in minutes – or in real time chat – but they also go ahead and fix the problem for you! This has saved us untold hours of trying to figure out the solution (we are not coders) as well as relieving stress and, yes, putting a smile on our face!
- Low Website Hosting Prices– You can get a SiteGround hosting account for as little as $3.95 a month for their Startup account, which is ideal for one website, providing 10 GB of web space and capacity for up to 10,000 visits monthly, as well as all essential web hosting features. We prefer the GrowBig account for $5.95 a month (paid annually) because of its extra features, such a accommodating multiple websites with 20 GB of web space, suitable for up to 25,000 visits monthly, all essential features, plus premium features such as priority technical support, free backup and restore, and SuperCacher for greater speed. If you’d like advanced features such as fewer accounts on the server, PCI compliant servers, one-click Git repo creation and free backups on demand, you might want to go with the GoGeek option for $11.95 a month. It also offers 30 GB of web space and is suitable for up to 100,000 visits a month, plus all the features of the lesser accounts. Cloud hosting, dedicated servers and reseller programs are also available and great prices from SiteGround. Check them all out here

- Free SSL Security– Every SiteGround account provides SSL security at no extra charge! You definitely want to change your hosting from non-secure http to secure https because recently Google began using a “Non-Secure Site” warning in all its Chrome browsers whenever a visitor reaches an insecure site. No small business can afford to lose potential or current customers because of this warning, and it’s likely that this will become standard with all web browsers in the near future. SSL security assures site visitors that any information they provide, even on a contact form where they enter their email, is being securely captured and protected and not grabbed by spammers.
- Blazing Fast Website Hosting Speed – Siteground’s servers are state-of-the-art, and that means your small business website will load fast in the browsers of visitors and customers. Average loading time for pages hosted on Siteground servers are about one-third of the web hosting industry average. Loading speed is also a ranking factor as Google determines how to rank sites in its search results. This chart shows speed comparisons of SIteground versus 12 other leading web hosting companies:
- Free Site Transfer – If you currently have your small business web hosting elsewhere, the SIteground team will transfer it to their servers at no charge, generally in a short amount of time based on our experience.
- Best Small Business Website Hosting Spam Blocker– Siteground is one of the relatively few small business web hosting providers using SpamExperts, the world’s best spam blocker by far. If your business email is loaded with spam and junk, this reason alone makes the switch to Siteground worth it! And of course no extra charge for this service.
- Free One-Click WordPress Set-up– If you use or want to use WordPress, the world’s most popular (and free) content management system, you can install it on your Siteground account with one click. Could not be easier.
- Automatic Daily Backups and Free Restores– If you or your web designers ever mess up your website, and one wrong click can do it, Siteground will restore it using their daily backup (yesterday’s version of the website) at no charge.
These are just a few of the many reasons we use and recommend Siteground web hosting for the best personal and small business website hosting To learn more about what they offer, click here.
