Simple Hosting for Small Sites
SGIS Hosting is focused only on shared hosting services. They don't have VPS or dedicated services. In fact, they really only have a few shared hosting packages to choose from. Their goal seems to be to provide the simplest hosting services possible so those without any experience can get their site up and running without any trouble.
If you're someone who just wants to have a small personal site or even a small business page, this may be a great company for you. The company offers excellent help to customers, and a good overall experience for keeping your site up and running.
Uptime & Reliability
Hosting is Fairly Stable
The stability of this hosting company is quite good. They offer good connections to the internet and don't typically have any type of outage. Like many entry level hosting companies, however, they do seem to oversell their servers a little bit. I saw a few people complaining about slow response times during certain times of the day. This is a very common issue with shared hosting companies and the fact is most people don't even notice it.
Basic Hosting Features
There is really not too much to say about this hosting company. They have just three options to choose from, starter, Home and Business. Each option offers you easy installation of WordPress and other scripts as well as the basic features you'll need to get started. The entry level package offers 500 MB of disk space and 5 gigs of bandwidth. The home package has 5 gigs of disk space and 50 gigs of bandwidth. You'll also get a free domain name at this level.
Finally, the business package has unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. You also get a free domain name here and some pretty nice eCommerce software. Overall the full feature list is not too impressive, but it will get you up and running without any trouble.
Quality Tech Support
This hosting company does a good job at helping people get their sites up and running. The company seems to be focused on helping newer or non-technical users so the tech support team has to be good. They are easy to get in touch with and very friendly.
This company has low prices for all three packages. First, the starter package is only 12.99 Euro per year. That is barely over a euro per month. The Home package is 24.99 per year and the business package is 39.99 per year. No matter what you decide to do, you'll be getting a good service at a low price.
Good Hosting at a Low Price
If you're just looking for very simple hosting that will get your site up and running, this is a good option to consider. They are very helpful with any questions you have and they will assist you along the way to ensure you don't run into any trouble.

Many businesses, clubs and organisations understand the significant benefits of having a website to raise their profile online but don't necessarily have the knowledge to set one up by themselves. After taking a look around the marketplace we realised that lots of companies were charging hundreds of pounds for a basic web solutions which was a HUGE barrier to entry for the businesses out there unable to justify that cost.
And so, in 2009 we founded SGIS to support small businesses in developing an online presence at a price they can afford.
