SiteGround Joomla hosting review: From the GoGeek user

SiteGround Joomla hosting review: From the GoGeek user

I have announced about the parnership between SiteGround and JoomlaShine before, and many customers have contacted us to ask more about this hosting service. I myself am using the GoGeek plan at SiteGround for some of my projects. I think it’s better to share with you the experience I had with SiteGround and the reasons why I chose SiteGround to partner with.

What is GoGeek plan?

SiteGround has 3 Joomla hosting plans to choose from. GoGeek is the plan with all the advanced Joomla features especially for Joomla developers. SiteGround provides you with very detailed information, however, in some cases, it can be difficult and confusing for you to pick a plan. Therefore, I have summed up here the key points that you should consider when making a decision.

Is SiteGround easy to work with?

It’s very simple to start with SiteGround. That’s the first reason I recommend their Joomla hosting service to any Joomla customer.

SiteGround have prepared all the necessary tools: 1-click Joomla installation, Joomla toolkits such as: Reset admin password, secure admin panel, etc,, Joomla tutorials and even Joomla extensions. All are free to access with the user friendly interfaces.

Even if you know nothing, just say what you want to do, and the SiteGround support staff will help you. They are active and quickly solve a problem within 15 minutes. I’m really impressed with how they support their customers.

Hosting at SiteGround I no longer worry about updating Joomla version because of Joomla auto update. The SiteGround GoGeek plan allows me to create a copy of my live site on a separate, staging environment. I am free to make changes to this copy and quickly make it live with just one click. That’s an awesome feature.

Should I run an online store at SiteGround?

Yes, you should. SiteGround also provide e-commerce solutions for customers (yes, for Free). You can easily install a powerful shopping cart with Free SSL Certificate and FREE PCI compliance for online payment processing. They offer a safe environment that you can trust, for both merchants and customers.

Any problems using the SiteGround hosting service?

SiteGround doesn’t lie to customers. They tell the truth about their service:  99.9% uptime guarantee, easy contact 24/7, and premium security. I had no problems using hosting at SiteGround: only 1 downtime of about 10 seconds, no spam, and no hackers.

Overall, I got great experience on using Siteground hosting service. If you need a Joomla hosting service with reasonable price, great support and friendly dashboard, SiteGround should be the best for you. Have you used Siteground hosting? Please let us know your feedback in the comments below.
