After experiencing problems with load times and inconsistent up time with my old host I decided to switch hosts. After doing a lot of research I switched to SiteGround. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Page speeds are now lightning quick and I could not be happier. I am in the process of writing a full review of SiteGround and will share it shortly! Below are some of the hosts I researched in the process of making my switch.
WPbasics has switched hosts to SiteGround. I can honestly say that my experience with them has been great. I needed tech support a couple of times and turned to their live chat. I got a customer service representative within 1 minute of starting the live chat. I am very happy with the speed of the page loads. In fact the page load have dropped in half and I now average 2.0 seconds to completely load my home page. I highly recommend SiteGround. I am in the process of writing a complete post on my transition to Siteground. Look for it soon.
