Siteground is no normal host. It provides managed services for wordpress websites. Daily backups, daily scans for malicious code and 24/7 wordpress support. Read on to know more about its managed services in detail.
Choice of Location:
Siteground is one of the few hosts offering to host your website on a location of your choice.No, not every one will provide it for shared hosting.
Location of your server matters. If you have most of your visitors from a specific location, its better to provide them with faster response and page loading times.

depending upon your visitor base. All locations have the same hosting features.
Siteground does daily backups and keep 30 of the latest copies in case of restorations. And the cool thing about this is you can do as many restorations you want without any limits and charges. And even cooler thing is, these backups don’t form part of your storage space( most other
They have three plans to choose from –
- Startup- 10,000 visits- 10gb diskspace,
- Growbig-25,000visits- 20gb diskspace,
- Gogeek- 100,000 visits- 30gb diskspace
However, they do mention that these are not exact limits and you can use more as long as you are not using too many CPU cycles and RAM. Incase you need a few more visits before the end of the month, you can ask their support and they will add extra too (from experience)
And in case you need more than that, siteground provides you with easy upgrade process and nice plans.
Apart from this they built their own caching solutions like Supercacher to speed up clients websites. The supercacher will be provided in three levels.
For the Startup plan you get level1 static caching only. But for the remaining plans you get level 2 as the Dynamic cache covering dynamic processes of your website and level 3 as the memcache covering your database queries
Specially desingned with developers in mind this plan is more than worth mentioning.

Users on this plan have their database on SSD, meaning faster load times.
