SiteGround Pricing: Fees & Prices of Each Plan

SiteGround Pricing: Fees & Prices of Each Plan

SiteGround is one of the most popular providers for shared hosting – and one of my favorite ones. But they offer much more than shared hosting: cloud hosting, enterprise hosting and even hosting plans optimized for WordPress, Joomla or WooCommerce.

So you are probably wondering: What hosting plan should I get?

Let’s then find out what exactly SiteGround offers and how much each plan is.

SiteGround hosting plans in detail

SiteGround offers several types of hosting. Let’s check the prices for each type of hosting individually.

SiteGround Shared hosting cost

Shared hosting is the most common type of hosting out there. It’s probably the one you should be using, unless your site is really big or has special technological requirements.

The StartUp plan costs $14.99 a month for 10GB of storage (only 1 website allowed). GrowBig is $24.99 and comes with 20 GB of storage & more backup options. The GoGeek tier is $39.99 and has 40 GB of storage and advanced features (e.g. Git). SiteGround doesn’t limit the traffic your site can get.

Trey’s background is important, as he’s worked with eight different web hosting companies, including iPowerweb, iPage, StartLogic, Dot5Hosting, Globat, Lunarpages, Hostpapa and now GreenGeeks.

*On their website, GreenGeeks goes on to make two bold claims:

To see for ourselves, we purchased the GreenGeeks ‘Shared Plan’ in June of 2015. We set up a basic WordPress test website to run performance tests for over 24 months. Detailed performance stats, like uptime and speed, can be viewed by clicking here for more information.

Bluehost Hosting Plans for Bloggers in 2020

Bluehost Hosting Plans for Bloggers in 2020

Ask any veteran blogger to recommend their best web hosting plans of choice—and Bluehost will come up more than most other hosting companies.

The reason for that is simple—Bluehost truly does offer some of the best web hosting plans for bloggers when it comes to affordability, features specifically curated for bloggers and the high-touch level of customer support when it comes to technical WordPress questions. Having been around since 1996, Bluehost has accumulated a lot of experience in the web hosting market, and they now combine price and value nearly perfectly.

So how does one of the biggest hosting companies fare in terms of how their individual web hosting plans are structured?


Based on several tests, Bluehost comes out as one of the top contenders as far as site performance goes. With load times that range between 0.046 seconds to 3.43 seconds depending upon where you’re located in the world, your website will load fast with a Bluehost hosting plan.


With the industry average for uptime being around 99.59%, Bluehost’s 99.99% average places it amongst the top-performing web hosting companies in this category.

Customer Support

Need help with technical issues concerning your hosting plan or with WordPress challenges? Bluehost won’t disappoint in this aspect, as they offer class-leading 24/7 support via phone, live chat and email. You’ll also find their lively forum very helpful, as is the wealth of knowledge they provide through their how-to guides, articles and FAQ section.

Pricing for Bluehost’s Web Hosting Plans

Apart from their 30-day money-back guarantee, Bluehost’s web hosting plans are some of the most competitive on the market from both a price and feature standpoint. Regular pricing ranges from $7.99/mo to $13.95/mo. However, you can get special deals (like mine right here) that reduce those prices to as little as $2.95/mo.

Bluehost offers a more generous selection of web hosting plans (and features within each of them) compared to other companies in the industry. Here’s how their two best hosting plans stack up:
With the Basic web hosting plan (budget-friendly) you get:

  • 1 Website
  • 50 GB SSD Storage
  • Unmetered Bandwidth
  • Free SSL Certificate
  • Standard Performance
  • 1 Included Domain
  • 5 Parked Domains
  • 25 Sub Domains

The Choice Plus web hosting plan (with their best features) also gets:

  • Unlimited Websites
  • Unlimited Storage
  • Unlimited Domains
  • Unlimited Parked Domains
  • Unlimited Sub Domains
  • Domain Privacy
  • Access to Spam Experts
  • Site Backup – CodeGuard Basic

Not sure about which Bluehost hosting plan you should settle for?

After personally testing and running some comparisons between their web hosting plans, I highly recommend the Choice Plus Plan for 2 reasons:

  • Unlimited storage
  • Domain privacy (for enhanced security)

However, whichever plan suits your blogging plans for the year to come, one thing is for sure—Bluehost offers some of the best web hosting plans on the market.

Moreover, their web hosting plans are backed by a customer service team that goes above and beyond the call of duty to help new bloggers with WordPress troubleshooting issues, technical challenges and any other questions that come up as you’re just starting your blog.
