Is Siteground for you? Here’s what we’ve gathered. This article is all about Siteground and what we honestly think of it.
In the year 2003, after spending years on the other side of the business, a group of IT professionals pulled their resources together and formed Siteground.com, a Web hosting company. To this date, Siteground remains privately held.
In the US, the offices are in Humble, Texas and New York City. It also has offices in Sofia, Bulgaria to oversee its European operation.
Small businesses and private individuals form the core of its client base in the Web hosting business, with about 150,000 websites hosted through its facilities.
As for the Better Business Bureau’s SiteGround rating, I was not surprised to see SiteGround being rated A+ because of its good reviews.
