WEB HOSTING CRAFTED WITH CARE
Web hosting is our craft. Latest speed technologies are our passion. Unique security solutions are our specialty. Amazing technical support is our pride. Founded in 2004 by a few university friends, SiteGround gradually but steadily turned into a leading web hosting service provider. With only a handful of people working from their university dorm rooms in the beginning, today the company has more than 400 employees and is constantly growing. We process 1500+ tickets, 1000+ phone calls and 3000+ chat requests per day. We proudly host more than 1,000,000 domains with this number growing by the hour.
SSD drives on all plans!
Files and databases on all of our shared hosting plans are stored on cutting-edge Solid State Drive technology. SSDs provide for a 1000x increase in input/output operations as compared to regular drives. SSD drives are included in all shared and cloud plans.
NGINX server speed
We use NGINX web server technology to speed up the load of the static content of all the websites we host. NGINX setup is included in all shared and cloud plans. It is also available for dedicated servers as part of the performance boosters.
For the most popular applications - WordPress, Joomla and Drupal we have also built our own caching mechanism based on NGINX reverse proxy. It speeds up dramatically the serving of the dynamic content of the sites too. Our SuperCacher also allows website speed optimization through memcached.
Free CDN available
Our free Cloudflare CDN makes your website load faster in any part of the world by caching its content and distributing it over multiple data centers. When foreign visitors access your website, our CDN delivers the content much faster from the data center closest to them.
HTTP/2 enabled servers
HTTP/2 is the newest network protocol, which significantly speeds up loading of websites in the browser. We are proud to be among the first hosts to support it on all our servers. HTTP/2 requires encrypted connection. To allow anyone take advantage of this great protocol we provide Let’s Encrypt free SSL Certificates.
PHP7 and HHVM
Whenever a technology or update is introduced, that makes php executions faster, you can count on us to implement it promptly on our servers. For example, we made it possible for our users to take advantage of PHP7, which is known for its great speed benefits, while it was still in beta.
