How do we compare to other hosts? – video and slides from the affiliate webinar


The second webinar of our Affiliate Series aims to help people who recommend SiteGround be well prepared for the question: what makes SiteGround different from all the rest? We have done detailed real-life tests with 12 hosting companies we consider close competitors and in the webinar we will show some real numbers about:

  • How much faster exactly a website is on SiteGround servers
  • How our reaction to security issues is the most efficient out there
  • How much faster we resolve our customer support requests

You will also learn how do we achieve such great results and how to use this information to convince easier your referees that SiteGround is the best choice.


Marketing Director

I have been with SiteGround since it was born and it has always amazed me to watch this company grow and develop its unique personality. My rewarding and challenging job is to help SiteGround communicate its strengths in the best way possible, learn from its mistakes and become a better person, oops, I meant a better brand!

    I just wanted to Say Bravo, AND I didn't need a webinar to tell me how SiteGround compares to other host. I did that my self, It took me a little over 3 months, but I tested and proved it... Whith who you say? well I cannot give the particular results per company, however I will say that I Purchased VPS accounts with the following Hosting companies; godaddy, arvixe, inmotion hosting, bluehost, justhost, hostgator, media temple, singlehop, dotblock, rackspace, 1and1, digital ocean, softlayer, justhost, A2 hosting, host papa, ipower, ipage, networksolutions.

    Now I was rating these hosting companies, off a few different areas;
    1: Performance (Response Time, Load Time, UpTime)
    2: Customer Services(Online Chat - Phone - Ticketing)
    3: User Interface (Easy of Access/Use) - Control Panel
    4: Cost
    5: Quality of Customer Support (How Many Rep. Before Issue Solved)
    6: Hardware (Cores, Ram, HDD, Bandwidth & Throughput,)
    7: Number of IP's
    8: Extra Service Addons (Such as HackAlert, Spam, Etc..)
    9: Knowledge Base, Forums, etc. (Wiki Area)
    10: Overall Average

    Now out of these results I was unable to give SiteGround 100%, however they were still Number 1 in a Combined and Average Score of 94.3%!!!

    I started using SiteGround on August 21, 2008, and I currently use SiteGround. I thank you for your superb services and amazing work towards the wold wide web.

    Thank you SiteGround!

    How would you compare yourself to WPEngine? I did notice there is no staging in the account which is a feature I like at WPEngine. Do you have the ability to replicate/duplicate installations if we wanted to copy a theme within the same account for another site?

      I would prefer not to make direct comparisons with WPENgine because our products differ in many ways. However, we do have a Staging tool that allows you to create work copies of your website, develope on them and them push the changes to live once you're happy with your modifications.
