There are a number of things to consider when choosing a hosting plan. I am using and recommending SiteGround as my top hosting company.

I recently moved several of my websites to SiteGround hosting. I have been incredibly impressed with the benefits, mostly with an big improvement of site speed. The migration was of every site I have moved, both for myself and a handful of clients, has been fast and without any complications. So… I am highly recommending this hosting company to friends and clients.

Step 1: Choose a Hosting Plan

SiteGround has three plans to choose from. My recommendation is the GrowBig plan. It allows you to host more than a single site. It’s affordable if you only have one website. But, almost every entrepreneur I know starts with a single website but eventually adds additional sites, either for themselves or to help a family member out. So, just go ahead and plan on having more than one site!

  • 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 Ultrafast PHP that greatly improves website speed.
  • The GoGeek plan is perfect for people with e-commerce and larger sites, or more geeky development needs like more server resources and GIT integration.

Step 2: Choose a Domain Name

I personally use NameCheap for registering my domains. But SiteGround also offers domain registration services if you haven’t already registered a domain. So, in this step, enter the domain for the website you will be hosing on the account. You can either select that you already have the domain, or register a new one.

Step 3: Review and Complete the Order

Unlike many other hosting providers, Siteground’s discount applies to any of the initial periods chosen during the sign up process. So decide how much you want to spend (and save) then complete your order.
