Founder of yoast.com plugin, powering 5+ million sites.
“We keep track of which hosts we get a lot of support requests for, so we can reach out to them. We had a hard time finding SiteGround in that list as we had so few complaints from customers hosted with them.”
A leading WP core contributor and organizer of WordCamps.
“What I like about SiteGround is the support is super friendly and attentive. I also love how easy it is that I work on my site locally, push to GitHub and it just magically appears on the server. I really appreciate not having to think about the site and the upgrades too.”
A leading WP core contributor and organizer of WordCamps.
“I am passionate about web performance. It takes a hosting committed to performance to match that passion. SG Optimizer delivers powerful cache for WordPress data, assets, and pages with a flip of a switch. Even on the shared plans!”
A WordPress developer and Partner and COO at Impress.org.

When we say “WordPress hosting” we refer to a web hosting service that supports WordPress specifically. WordPress is generally not hard to be accommodated and many regular hosts do it perfectly. All they need is to cover several basic requirements for compatibility with the software such as to run MySQL and PHP on their servers. The real differentiating factor between hosts focused on WordPress and other, regular ones is in their expertise and dedication to WordPress - those that claim to be WordPress hosts usually offer additional support and features specifically for WP. SiteGround offers managed WordPress service in all its plans, which includes automatic updates of the core and free plugins, convenience tools such as staging, WP-CLI, WordPress Starter and WordPress Migrator, and performance and security features on server level and application level via the SiteGround Optimizer plugin and SiteGround Security plugin.
WordPress is a free, open source content management system that needs a hosting environment with MySQL database and PHP language in order to function and make your WordPress-powered website available in the net. When choosing your host you first need to make sure that it covers these basic technical requirements to accommodate the software and then consider additional WordPress-specific services that are included in the hosting plan to give you maximum convenience and peace of mind such as security features, performance boosters and other managed solutions.
When it comes to WordPress, managed service adds an extra layer of convenience for the WordPress site owners. Managed WP hosts like SiteGround will take care of the WordPress updates, keep track of vulnerabilities and offer WAF protection and other security services, and build solutions that specifically offer WordPress performance and security boosts. This additional layer of security, speed and convenience tools is what explains the premium price range compared to regular hosting.
SiteGround is one of the leading WordPress hosting providers, recommended by WordPress.org. The brand has built a great reputation for top-rated 24/7 customer service and support expertise, bundled with an all-inclusive list of services and solutions crafted for WordPress specifically. On top of its powerful and ultrafast hosting platform which uses the innovative Google Cloud infrastructure, there are tons of performance and security features with frequent additions and enhancements.
SiteGround WordPress hosting plans differ in terms of allocated resources and additional features available. For regular sites that are just kicking it off, or sites that do not maintain a large database and/or don’t get much traffic, we recommend our StartUp plan. For growing websites, which actively grow their visitors, you may consider our GrowBig plan. For developed, well-visited sites with growing databases, and especially ecommerce sites, please take a look at our GoGeek plan or cloud solutions.
We save you the trouble of downloading, installing, and configuring WordPress manually by offering a simple click-and-install option. Not only that, but we have automated the whole process from installation until site launch with the help of our WordPress Starter wizard. The WordPress Starter tool allows you to choose from a curated collection of professional site designs and add key functionalities like contact forms, an online store, a portfolio, and more. All the features you select are automatically installed on your site, turning the standard default WordPress installation into a beautiful and fully-functional website in minutes - no technical knowledge required!
Once you install WordPress through our automated installer and you log into your site’s admin panel, you will be able to use our unique WordPress Starter. This tool allows you to choose from a selected collection of professional site designs and add key functionalities like contact forms, an online store, a portfolio, and more. All the features you select are automatically installed on your site, turning the standard default WordPress installation into a beautiful and fully-functional website in minutes - no technical knowledge required!
Migrating a website with our WordPress Migrator is super easy and free. You just need to install our Migrator plugin on the site you want to migrate, get a token from your SiteGround Site Tools and put it in the plugin. The Migrator will securely move all of your content while keeping your configuration intact. The best thing is that it’s completely free and you can use it for as many migrations as you wish.
We offer professional website migration service for as low as £20.00 Excl. VAT per site. Our experts will do all the work for you, transferring your files and databases. We migrate more than 50,000 sites per year and know the ins and outs of how to make the process smooth and risk-free for you!
Keeping your WordPress application up-to-date with the latest version is an important step in maintaining a secure site. Our automatic WordPress software and plugin updates make that process easy and fast. You can schedule how fast your site gets updated after a new version is released or even skip a version if you need more time to prepare for the update.
We manage the overall security of your application at a server and firewall level by keeping track of WordPress-related vulnerabilities and patching against exploits. We add dozens of such rules each year and we are able to protect your sites even before the official developers release a security update.
We crafted an all-in-one WordPress security plugin which combines everything you need to secure your website in one place. The SiteGround Security helps you protect your website from brute-force attacks, common hacks, data leaks, and more with a few clicks. It's a must-have for every WordPress site.
Our platform is hosted on the Google Cloud and enjoys the fastest network and the latest modern hardware with SSD persistent storage. Google infrastructure is known for innovation, reliability and speed, which guarantees a great performance for any website.
By default, we enable NGINX Direct Delivery for all sites on our servers, which means that certain items, like your images, will load faster from the memory of the server. However, the biggest impact on the WordPress loading speed is achieved when connecting your site with our NGINX-based dynamic cache and Memcached service. (The option is available on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans).
Our free SiteGround Optimizer allows you to use all our unique caching options listed above. Through it you can also easily improve your site speed by setting the optimal PHP version, switching on the HTTPS option and using our automated image optimizations, lazy image loading, GZIP compression, CSS&HTML minifications and more.
Our custom PHP implementation makes your pages load up to 30% faster, cutting the TTFB (time to first byte) and allowing the server to process more of your visits faster. The service is available on GrowBig and higher plans. You can read more about this technology in our blog.
Site speed can greatly influence both your search engine visibility and your website’s conversion rates. That’s why we quickly adopt new technologies and develop in-house such that make sites run faster!
Sleep easy knowing your site is fully backed up in case of data loss, hacking, or human error. We automatically save daily backups and keep up to 30 copies of your account. For an additional layer of security these backups may be stored in a data center located in another city, state or country.
In addition to our automated backups, customers can generate backups on demand from their Site Tools. The service is free on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans and costs £19.95 Excl. VAT on our StartUp plan.
Our backup options are a great way to protect your website from downtime and traffic loss, as backup restore is the fastest way to resolve a large number of common website issues. Backup restores are free on all of our shared hosting plans.
Create professional email addresses with your website domain at no extra cost. You can create as many accounts as you need and easily give access to individual accounts to your employees, team or else.
You can read your email via webmail from anywhere. What is more, you and users of the email accounts you created could change their passwords, set autoresponders and forwarders easily from our webmail app.
When using your email for business, it’s essential to have the options to set autoresponders and forwarders. You can do that from Site Tools >Email section and from the webmail app.
Our email service allows you to send and receive messages in email accounts created at your own domain thanks to the SMTP, POP3 and IMAP protocols which we support on our platform.
Having an SSL is more than just a best practice for websites, it’s an industry standard. SSL certificates protect the data transmitted through your site and make sure you meet the requirements of search engines that flag unsecured sites. It is mandatory for ecommerce sites and those that gather user data.
We partnered and financially supported since its founding the Let’s Encrypt project, which offers free SSL for anyone. With our in-house integration of Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates can be issued and renewed automatically for sites hosted on our platform.
All new sites hosted on our platform get the free Standard SSL enabled. Clients may switch to a free Wildcard SSL at any time from their Site Tools. Read more.
Many of our customers maintain dynamic sites that require updates and changes as their businesses grow. However, big changes can be risky and it's a good practice to test any major change in a safe environment that won't affect your live site. That is why we've developed our Staging tool, which is available on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans.
The Staging tool allows you to create an exact copy of your site in a click so you can work on it before pushing changes live. That way you can test any new code changes and make sure they don’t break your site. Or, you can modify the environment to see how your site will behave with a new PHP version for example before switching it live.
Any changes made can be pushed to your live site with confidence, in one click! Upon pushing live, you can exclude databases and other changes that might overwrite new data recorded on the live site during testing. Just to be on the safe side, we also perform automatic backups each time you upload a staging version to production.
For WordPress developers we have a few conveniences that allow you to manage your sites through a command line interface:
