Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,

I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.

My sites always load quick and if I contact customer service, they resolve any issues that I have immediately. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable hosting provider.

Very bad service

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!
Please stay away

It was top choice but after recent price increase and system changes it is the worst hosting available. Support worthless, they choose which website to enable which not. Price increased almost 10 times with service decreased.... More Please stay away. You can find much better hosting with cpanel and much cheaper then this. All customers are going away from siteground hosting as they increased price from 59 per year to almost 300! Please stay away. Stayed with them for a long time, but they started to turn off website after website, changed cpanel to some bad choice panel. Must to do updates without choice to disable them, Less

SiteGround has long been a favorite for hosting in the US, but German company 1&1 has been in the business a lot longer and knows how to offer a comprehensive hosting service. It has a greater selection of hosting options and they all come with more memory and processing power than those offered by SiteGround. They’re also much cheaper too. 1&1 supports all major providers for CMS, including Magento and Presta Shop, and unlike SiteGround, 1&1 users can code their site in all major coding languages, like Django and Python.
