Recommended WordPress Hosting 2021 – Siteground Review (for bloggers & solopreneurs)
A short review of Siteground Hosting for WordPress :
My recommended website hosting provider for 2021
Having been a web designer since the early days of the internet (I can still hear those ear-piercing squeals of the first modems – remember those?!), one of the questions I’m asked most often is who to choose for web hosting?
While I’ve tried a fair few providers in my time – with mixed results – I’m pretty happy with my current hosting provider; Siteground.
The user area is simple and easy to use.
The customer support is excellent.
The hosting service is among the best available.
They provide free SSL certificates with a couple of clicks. (SO good for SEO.)
In short, Siteground make building and maintaining websites easier, so that’s a win in my book.
Some people comment that they aren’t the cheapest, which is true, but I don’t feel they are excessively expensive either.
Plus, there’s a time and a place to save pennies, and I believe that the complex, temperamental and sometimes inexplicable realm of website tech is one place it’s worth investing in an easier life.
So, I highly recommend Siteground as a hosting provider, especially if you’re just starting with your first website and you’d like it be a smooth and happy experience.
Good luck with your website creation!
PS Siteground currently have a hosting sale on which makes your first year of hosting extremely affordable.
The price does revert to the normal rate after a year, but you can give them a trial for 12 months and see if you feel they are worth the full cost.
(I think you’ll be very happy with your Siteground experience. 🙂 )
UPDATE: Siteground are currently offering 3 months of free hosting and free website migration until 25th of November, 2021, which is a special offer only available via a referral link.
I love the way so many business are now making word-of-mouth recommendations beneficial for both the new customer and the proud advocate. 🙂

But, as any creative knows - it's not always an easy path.
So this is where I share what I've learned about finding more flow, more fulfilment and more joy along the way.
