SiteGround Hardware Improvements

In 2012 we started the SiteGround How Cool Is That challenge to help our clients learn about the cool technologies that only we provide. Every week of the challenge we posted a new infographic explaining one of our unique features. In the final stage of the competition, our clients were invited to vote for the coolest technology by sharing their feedback in a comment. As second runner-up to the winner, our clients rated our server hardware. Read the comments to see the feedback from the clients who voted for it or check a short infographic on how it works.

SG hardware has exceeded my expectations.

This is my shout-out for HARDWARE! Recently I moved two clients over to SiteGround because of the enormous speed advantage. I have hosted with many over the years, but the host-est with the most-est is SiteGround. The new VPS Cloud hosting package for one client, has made over 170 eBook uploads in all formats easy easy easy. The download speed for eBooks when purchased, is just as fast as Amazon Kindle or B&N Nook Platform, which allows this independent publisher to compete globally. Thanks Site Ground!

For 9 years I was on a dedicated server, to which they never offered or performed upgrade on the hardware. As I installed some of the latest software's my website started to crawl in some ways. So I switched, in switching from day 1 I have noticed a BIG increase in speed overall on the website and after the updates were performed I couldn't be happier because it just got that much better! It has been a pleasure working with Siteground going on 6+ months and I am looking forward to many years of happy service!

My story is kind of long how I came about SiteGround. I do web development, and started writing a book on how to create your own using Joomla, in 6 easy short steps. I made videos to go along with the video and was NOT going to showcase any specific hosting provider. I needed to use one as an example, but I refused to use my current one (Aplus.Net) because it was painfully slow (the backend and the website at times) so I went to a few hosting providers and none would let me use their backend temporarily. Until I talked to a SiteGround rep who informed me they had a guest backend to test it out. After playing around with it for awhile I decided to do what I knew would take forever. Switch my 22 sites over to SiteGround. This was the best decision I have ever made with regards to my websites. Doing things in cPanel on SiteGround is fast. My websites load faster, navigation is a breeze as well. Well I did a 180° turn on not showcasing a specific provider in my book and in my videos, and now highly recommend this service to all of my clients (It saves me so much time when working on clients sites, I now offer a free transfer to SiteGround from any other hosting provider). FYI: Book is 6StepWebsite.Net and I will provide my book free to anyone interested from SiteGround, just message me from the site that you are a SiteGround customer, and I will send you a copy free (please include preferred format).

When we moved over www.lifetimeimages.com this month to siteground it was because our old webhost didn't know the first thing about Joomla. The very first thing we noticed right away was how much faster it was to navigate around in Joomla's administration panel. Then I notice how much faster the page loaded. Then I noticed all those things that didn't work in Joomla suddenly started working. I think I'm in love! Siteground has made working on my website much easier which has helped make me even more enthusiastic about it. I am putting many hours a week into right now and I am so thankful I made the switch.

I saw so many horrible reviews of shared web hosting that I felt I couldn't trust any of the companies. So I tried VPS hosting. However, the technical challenges were too great for me. Also, the tech support was so bad they took down my websites by suddenly changing my IP address from their end. I again looked at many reviews of shared hosting accounts. It turned out that SiteGround has the best reviews. I haven't regretted my decision to transfer my websites to SiteGround. I'm very happy to learn about all the extra services they offer, and to know they have the most up to date hardware!
