SiteGround has solid shared hosting plans, but they aren't the most robust. It is a decent option for personal blogs and doesn't require much setup, and it is this market that SiteGround has been targeting.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
SiteGround has solid shared hosting plans, but they aren't as robust as HostGators' offerings. SiteGround's base WordPress tier, StartUp, offers a skimpy 10GB of storage, a mere 10,000 monthly visitors. The top-tier Managed plan adds site staging so you can experiment with site changes.

SiteGround has a solid reputation when it comes to working in and around the WordPress space. The StartUp hosting plan costs £2.95 / $3.95 per month. The GrowBig plan offers double the web space, and caters for around 25,000 monthly visitors. SiteGround also has Weebly support for your delectation.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
SiteGround's GrowBig plan gives you 20GB storage and supports as many domains as you can host within that limit. There's free transfer of one existing website, a Nginx and Memcached-based SuperCacher scheme to accelerate performance on busy sites. Staging is a very useful feature, often only available in specialist managed WordPress hosting plans. Management tasks are carried out via SiteGround's own Site Tools console.

All SiteGround plans include the Cloudflare CDN (content delivery network), which protects your site against distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
