Reason 1: starters to advanced plans.
shared, managed wordpress hosting, cloud hosting with main benefit of autoscale:
bluehost vs GoDaddy vs hostgator vs siteground
bluehost & hostgator comes from same company EIG
Group for benchmarking customers.
GoDaddy it’s focus on business customers not a technical / developers by providing less resources.
siteground pretty new when compared to those, so sacrifice margins & give high performance servers at low cost. Performance centric, rather than above non technical customer oriented.
siteground vs cloudways vs kinsta vs DO
it’s another comparison when you get millions even 50k visits per month.
digital ocean provides bare metals, we need a server admin to assist.
cloudways uses digital ocean adds their margin price goes 2x.
while managed hosting companies like wpengine, kinsta charges 3x+ based on server+ deals with WordPress issues.
siteground also offers managed cloud services like cloudways you can easily scale traffic by upgrading resources.
so why siteground is good start for bloggers?
fair price for performance unlike HG, bluehost, offers low there are limits (processing scripts), cpu usage.
in my early career I chooses 3+ accounts in HG, bluehost, GoDaddy to increase performance site speed especially server response time /TTFB. Don’t make mistakes I made, you should learn from other experience in this competitive world.
Cons of siteground:
many people complains about 503 resources limit reached for their account.
fix: upgrading plan to overcome peak hours.
all companies use this code.
you get what you pay.
if you want managed hosting (server level / application level) contact me.
why to delegate?
delegation is the key of business world upon calculating margins 👍.
I strongly recommends you try siteground instead of others.

CPU time is part of task or process execution time. Load is unavailability of cpu for wasting processes.
CPU Second: 1 second worth of cpu cycles 2GHZ means 2 billion cycles in 1 second.
Optimize Your website for siteground otherwise you will get suspended
- Disable Xml RPC php
- Disable wp cron.php and set new using for every 5 minutes instead of every site visit with default.
- Block badBots : its their duty at server level, you can do it by wordpress security plugins.
