For new bloggers we 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.
We sell hosting from SiteGround because we work with them every day and we know and trust what they do. We will not sell or endorse any hosts that don’t stack up (like the Blue one or the Gator one which both 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 from ProprietorsWeb we do the WordPress install for you for free or we work with SiteGround directly to move your previous WordPress site — we also update the name server settings for you — for free. Basically we make sure the whole thing is completed and working for you.
To get that free service from us the only requirements are to be a new SiteGround client 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.
We also offer ongoing help, support and mentoring as you build your blog.
