What Hosting Plans are Available?
SiteGround offers 3 shared hosting plans as well as cloud and dedicated server hosting. For most small business websites, choosing a shared server will be sufficient. Which shared plan you’ll want depends on how much storage you’ll need and how much traffic your site will generate.
Hosting with SiteGround’s StartUp plan starts at just $3.95 a month. This plan offers hosting for 1 website with 10GB of space available. It offers Static Content Caching. You’ll also have up to 10,000 visits per month. In addition, this plan offers:
- Free Site Builder
- Free SSL and HTTPS (Let’s Encrypt)
- Email Accounts are included for free
- Free CDN via Cloudfare
SiteGround’s GrowBig plan starts at $5.95 a month. This plan offers everything you’ll get with the StartUp as well as up to 25,000 visits a month and 20 GB of space. With this plan, you are allowed an unlimited number of websites. Most attractive about this mid-tier plan is the enhanced caching ability offered. Both Dynamic Data and Database Queries caching is offered in addition to the Static Content caching offered with the StartUp.
The GoGeek plan is for websites that require a lot of space and have an equally large number of visits. Pricing starts at $11.95 a month. With this plan you’ll have an unlimited number of websites available with up to 100,000 visits a month and 30 GB of space.
Cloud and Dedicated Hosting
In addition to their shared hosting plans, SiteGround also offers Cloud Hosting as well as Dedicated Hosting. Their Cloud Hosting is great for sites that need dedicated RAM and CPU. Cloud hosting also works for websites that surpass the storage or visit limits found on their Shared plans. Plans for Cloud Hosting range from $80-$240 per month. Finally, for those websites that are looking to have dedicated resources with little in the way of restrictions, SiteGround offers Dedicated Servers. This means your website will not share any server space with another site. This also means direct access to your site server. Dedicated Servers are only for the most robust websites. Dedicated hosting plans range from $269-$729 per month. The majority of clients we work with will be happy on one of the more affordable Shared Hosting plans.
