When I started MobileBeyond in 2009, like other bloggers and podcasters, I chose a reputable web hosting company. Over the years, I’ve switched from HostGator to GoDaddy, but I never found a WordPress-oriented firm offering superior customer service, fast webpage downloads and superior security until I moved my websites to SiteGround web hosting.
For several years, Host Gator responded to my service requests quickly. Then, I noticed a drop in timely and accurate responses. Although HG backed up my WordPress sites, I ran into trouble on IM-Mobile and lost the entire blog.
I then moved MobileBeyond and BrianProws.com, my personal blog, to GoDaddy’s top-of-the-line hosting, but GD’s techs weren’t familiar with WordPress, put me on hold and rarely resolved problems in an accurate and timely manner. I tried GoDaddy’s managed WordPress hosting. Performance improved but technical support remain poor.
SiteGround Web Hosting
After thorough research, I moved all my sites to SiteGround, choosing the GoGeek plan so I could stage sites offline before launching live. Staging is a very handy tool if you need to build sites you don’t want live on the Internet until ready.
SiteGround SuperCacher technology immediately provided excellent caching improving MobileBeyond download speeds. Combined with one-click CloudFlare, a content delivery network with 34 worldwide data centers, MobileBeyond accelerated rapidly on the Internet. In most cases, its home page downloaded in one second or less. (CloudFlare also protects sites against bots, spammers and other Internet intruders.)
If you’re a content marketer, blogger, podcaster or webmaster, you need quick response to issues that arise from time-to-time. You can’t wait for hours to solve hosting or WordPress problems; you need problem resolutions now.
SiteGround techs have continually amazed me. Whether I use chat or submit a trouble ticket, SiteGround support is the first web hosting company that responds and resolves issues within minutes if not one hour. I can’t afford to have MobileBeyond down for a day. Knowledgeable server and WordPress techs respond quickly and accurately.
Naturally, no web hosting company is perfect. But in nearly all cases, SiteGround web hosting problems have been resolved quickly and timely. Techs provide accurate information, based on their knowledge of SiteGround servers and WordPress.
SiteGround web hosting is not perfect. No company in this business is. But if you’re looking to accelerate your website or blog and demand superior technical support, SiteGround is an excellent choice.
