SiteGround stands out in the hosting world by offering premium WordPress hosting features at shared hosting pricing. With their lowest plan starting at $3.95 per month, they are among the cheapest managed options. The full range of managed features requires a higher priced plan, but you can access WordPress automatic updates, daily backups, isolated accounts, and anti-hack systems on even their cheapest plans.
- Built-in WordPress auto-installer for easy setup.
- Automatic updates to WordPress core files and plugins.
- SuperCacher to improve site performance.
- Staging sites for testing (on their GoGeek plan).
- 24/7 WordPress expert support.
SiteGround is a great way to go if you are on a budget and looking for managed WordPress hosting features – even the GoGeek plan is affordable. If you want control over your site but like the availability of support to help you out, SiteGround will work well for you. The geek in you could use the command line interface if desired, but SiteGround utilizes the cPanel interface primarily.
