Winner: SiteGround

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

If you look at Site5 and SiteGround side by side, it is not at all difficult to determine which of these two companies is better. SiteGround outranks Site5 in every category, and does with lower prices. Both companies offer free domains with new hosting packages, and has better hosting features for every type of hosting available. All this makes it quite clear that SiteGround is significantly better for the customers, and the winner of this comparison.
