SiteGround’s shared hosting plans follow a traditional tiered structure, providing a solution for most customers and ensures scalability for those who are just starting. They can be a good starting point for new customers, coming with most of the essentials to get your site live. Such as a one-click app installer, Weebly drag & drop site builder (freemium service), free ‘Let’s Encrypt’ SSL certificates, email accounts, and 24/7 customer support.

Plans
For customers looking to host a basic blog, business site, or small eCommerce store, SiteGrounds included disk space is adequate, with plans scaling from 10GB to 30GB, respectively. These types of sites generally require less than 10GB of storage, including software and plugins, and is the typical level of storage you’ll find offered from most hosts. If you’re planning on hosting multiple sites, you’ll want to keep in mind that your 20GB-30GB of storage is shared across them.

Final Thoughts

While SiteGround provides a decent web hosting solution, coming with most of the essentials, you’ll need and a level of 24/7 customer support, that’s better than most. However, most customers may not find enough value to justify their high price points.
