Though many companies claim to be the top dog when it comes to providing security, support, and speed to its customers, the truth is many fail to make good on their promises. And for the unknowing WordPress site owner, this can result in wasted time and money, let alone frustration.
Today we will look at SiteGround, one of the leaders in WordPress hosting, to see what services they provide website owners and ways they do make good on all of their hosting service promises.
While at Web Summit where literally thousands of startups were exhibiting, I had the chance to talk to many of the people behind these startups and get to know their businesses better.
I was happy to note that the vast majority were using WordPress for their website. I didn’t meet any startups that were using WordPress as the platform for building the product itself, however it was clear that the company’s website was very important to them. Making a good impression through their website could mean getting investment, or for those further ahead it might make or break their sales figures.
You need to build a WordPress website, but don’t know what to start with? Some people may say that it is almost impossible to undertake a job like this without specific skills and practice. Well, nothing is impossible and even a beginner is capable of building a site quite quickly. Of course, it may take a little bit more time compared to a professional, but still, the result is totally worth it.
In theory transferring a WordPress website should be a straightforward process that involves few well-defined steps like: export your database from the old host, import it on the new one, move your files, reconfigure WordPress and change the DNS records. Not much can go wrong you may think, but actually on each step things can occur causing trouble and preventing your successful transfer. In this post I will go through the most common of these issues and try to give you tips I learned from migrating hundreds of sites to SiteGround servers.

I recently moved over one of my most important sites to SiteGround from its previous location at a shared host. SiteGround are a hosting company that’s been established for more than 9 years now, they are based in Bulgaria and offer shared hosting, cloud hosting and dedicated servers.
One of the reasons I moved to SiteGround was that I met their team at WordCamp Europe in Leiden earlier this year. They left a lasting impression of me and immediately came across as a fun, knowledgeable and passionate bunch, focused on supplying a great service and keeping their customers satisfied.
