Worth It, Some Issues

SiteGround Shared Hosting Review  2019 – Conclusion

SiteGround may not be the best web host provider available but they do offer a good and affordable service you can use. Their subscription plans are offered on a big introductory discount, and come with a 30 day money back guarantee so you can go try out their service without any risk. You can even choose the location of your server between their 3 locations worldwide unlike other companies. Again, it’s not perfect, but immediately writing off the company due its shortcomings would be a mistake.
