SiteGround for managed shared web-hosting
I’ve been impressed with the performance and features of SiteGround’s hosting service. Their servers are nicely designed for WordPress—all plans are hosted on lightweight Linux containers with SSD and the latest software trends like NGINX, PHP7 and HTTP/2. They even have their own WordPress caching plugin, which gave excellent results and fast load times.
For scalability, SiteGround’s cloud plans allow automatic resource scaling, without causing downtime. This is great if you experience traffic spikes and don’t want to compromise with your website’s performance.
SiteGround is not owned by EIG, so you won’t see the bargain pricing and poor reliability like you see with other providers (such as BlueHost or HostGator), but I think you’ll get much better service!
(SiteGround also offers VPS-level cloud hosting.)
