Before choosing hosting, read the web hosting comparison aka, why I picked SiteGround and DreamHost.
For new bloggers I sell fast shared hosting with fanatic support from SiteGround. SiteGround offers everything you need including fast servers, all features and free SSL certificates — to have the secure green padlock on all of your websites.
I sell hosting from SiteGround because I work with them every day and I know and trust what they do. I won’t sell or endorse any hosts that don’t stack up (the ones that have hidden charges and dismissive support).
When you choose the medium plan you may add more sites on the same plan in the future if you want to. But the starter plan is fine if you only see yourself having one site for awhile.
SiteGround also offers extremely helpful support. They’re willing to help even when someone makes a mistake with their site and they’re always very professional and courteous.
When you buy SiteGround hosting from ProprietorsWeb I do the WordPress install for you for free. That means I’ll build you a brand new WordPress site and make sure the whole thing is completed and working for you — you’ll be able to start customizing and writing web pages and/or blog posts immediately.
Or, I’ll move your existing WordPress site from the previous host for free — chat/message me to discuss what’s needed to get started.
To get the free service from me the only requirements are to be a new SiteGround customer and to maintain the hosting account for the first year. There’s a discount when signing up and you may get that discount locked in for 1, 2 or 3 years, whichever you prefer.
