Siteground hosting sale September 2 – 8

If you are looking to rehost your site, you might want to take advantage of a Siteground web hosting shared server sale coming up. The event begins September 2, 2019 and lasts through September 8, 2019. I use Siteground’s shared hosting to host this site.

While I like Siteground, it doesn’t make sense for everyone. In particular, before you move to Siteground’s shared hosting make sure that your databases are not too big. There are limits from 400MB to 1GB on the size of your databases, depending on the plan you choose. More details are on my rehosting page.

Also, in fairness I should note that Siteground recently raised their prices. Their GoGeek plan, their most feature-laden shared hosting plan, used to be about $20/month regular price and is now $34.95/month. However, they are a quality shared host, which is a rarity in their business. To maintain their completely solid state infrastructure means they need more revenue that hosts that still use slower disk drives.

New customers get a first year discount anyhow of $3.95/month, $5.95/month or $11.95 depending on whether you choose the StartUp, GrowBig or GoGeek plan. This represents a first year discount of between 66% and 70%.

During the sale, the GoGeek plan is discounted to $7.95/month for the first year, a savings of 77%.

Siteground will rehost you for free if you choose the GrowBig or GoGeek plan.

If you decide to sign up during the sales period, please be kind and use my affiliate link. You won’t pay anything extra and I will earn a commission.
