SiteGround Final Conclusion

If you are newbie and not having prior knowledge of server setup and maintance you can go with Siteground hosting.

They are providing top notch support makes problem easy to solve.

It is batter you buy hosting for 3 years that makes much cheaper deal. Reason if you buy for 1 year then on second year discounted price will not available.

If you are not having capital money for investment you can go with cloudways hosting they are providing cloud hosting starting from $10/month. which is much faster than siteground.
