“I have been a paying customer for SiteGround since October 2017.

I am monitoring SiteGround’s shared hosting servers for Uptime and Performance through my website hostingpill-sg.website.

This review of SiteGround is based on actual testing done on their servers and interaction with their customer support.”

This SiteGround Hosting Review was revised and updated on June 19, 2019.

Ah, SiteGround. If you’ve been looking into web hosting lately, there is no way you haven’t stumbled across this name.

Easily one of the biggest names in the world of web hosting, it can be a little hard to know where to start.

It’s mostly stayed out of the news, minus its vocal opposition to the United States bills SOPA and PIPA a few years ago (if you’re unfamiliar, it was in good company here, joining many major online companies in protest).

If it’s stayed out of the news though, it definitely has not stayed out of articles and reviews. It’s just too notable to not hear about if you’re curious about this stuff. In fact, SiteGround is one of the biggest names in hosting, supporting over 2 million websites.

But is bigger always better? How many online SiteGround reviews can you really trust anyway? What makes SiteGround stand apart from some other top names?

Of course, I can’t fully answer those questions, but I hope to at least shed some light about SiteGround nonetheless.

It’s a veteran in the hosting world, being founded in 1998.

What is Hostinger?

It’s about time we get an updated review of Hostinger up. After all, Hostinger has been a major hosting force in an internet full of different hosting platforms.

If you haven’t heard of Hostinger before, you might be surprised to learn it is, in fact, a sprawling hosting provider. I mean it: Hostinger has over 29 million users and subsidiaries in 178 countries.

It started in 2004, but from its small beginnings, it’s become a fantastic hosting option.

In this review, we’ll talk about a lot—but to give you a quick answer, Hostinger is good. Not perfect, but overall cheap relative to what you get for the buck.

But hey, that’s an oversimplification. So what are we waiting for?

Wix Review 2019: Our Honest Opinion With Pros & Cons

Reading Time: 11 min read

Wix is undisputed as a champion of website building. Anyone looking for an easy website builder will undoubtedly find Wix in the results.

So what’s the deal with Wix? Founded in 2006, Wix has grown to serve more than 110 million people, with half of that coming from the last four years alone. Wix is especially famous for its free website building plan, easily one of the best free site builders around.

Is it all just hype? Or maybe, people just care about the free website builder and the actual premium services aren’t that good, huh? Or maybe Wix is genuinely popular, but its customers don’t know true quality?

Everyone has reasons to be skeptical of a popular software, particularly one that brands itself as a “free ____” (be it free site builder, free VPN, free anti-virus, and so on).

Well, I’ve been testing Wix formally for a few months and using it on and off for years. I’ve watched it grow and I’ve grown in my expertise at the same time. And now, I would like to give an intimate review of how Wix stands as a website building service in 2018.

“I have been a paying customer for NameCheap since November 2017.

I am monitoring NameCheap’s shared hosting servers for Uptime and Performance through my website hostingpill-nc.website.

This review of NameCheap is based on actual testing done on their servers.”

This NameCheap Review was revised and updated on June 19, 2019.

In the world of domain name registration, few names are bigger than Namecheap. Namecheap is well established in domain registration for its low prices and reliable service.

Like many other registrars, Namecheap also offers hosting services. Unfortunately, while we all know Namecheap the registrar, few of us know Namecheap the host. This isn’t surprising, given that the company’s name directly refers to domains and not hosting, but nonetheless…

Today, you’re in luck! Because in this review I will summarize my findings from using Namecheap. And to make things extra special, I’ll talk about Namecheap as both a host and registrar.

So, how does Namecheap stack up? Is it only good for being cheap? Is it only good for managing its 10 million domains, or can it do the other part of the site equation as well?

It’s complicated, but we’ll get there. So without further ado, let’s talk about Namecheap!

If you’re like me, you love underdogs.

I’m talking about the characters in books and movies who are somehow disadvantaged compared to the big, powerful “top dog.”

But despite their disadvantages and the dominance of the rival, the underdog works hard and manages to make a name for themselves, sometimes even rivaling or beating the traditional winner.

I LOVE those stories, so I’m gonna tell you one right NOW. Let’s welcome our underdog:

InMotion Hosting was founded in 2001, which puts it on the older side for an internet company.

This article has been updated in June 2019 to add more relevant alternatives to Godaddy.

You know, millions of Authors and Hundreds of Enterprises have changed their hosting from GoDaddy to BlueHost, FastComet, GreenGeeks, and  SiteGround in recent past. All of them were tired of expensive renewal plans, irritating customer service and vulnerable servers.

GoDaddy offers new domains for as cheap as $10 per year but when you plan to renew it the very next year they charge ten times of the initial amount. This marketing tactic must have brought in a few customers but it is not a good practice to continue with.
