Why host with us?

Our package includes the basics of hosting which you can find from any dime-a-dozen hosting provider.

Website hosting

We offer unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth*, on SSD servers.

My website hosting upstream is based in California, though the servers are in Chicago. They’re the leading green energy hosting provider in the states.

Email hosting

For email addresses at your domain, e.g. contact@sarah-the-author.com

Domain registration/renewal (e.g. sarah-the-author.com)

we’ll help you pick and name and register it for you. If your domain is already registered, we can transfer and manage it if you’d prefer.

Automated weekly backups

We archive your backups for 1 year. Typical hosting companies only offer backups going back 30 days as standard.

Security monitoring and restoration

Unfortunately, because WordPress is so commonly used, it’s a big target for malicious attacks.

We start with installing security plugins to protect your site from launch, then continuously monitor for changes. If something happens, we’ll clean and restore the site for you.

Restoring a hacked site isn’t fun!

Google Search Console

We setup and manage your appearance and security protection in Google search results pages, using Google Search Console.

Bundled Billing

All of your services are billed and handled in one place. No need to question any bills that come in.

This means if something goes wrong, you won’t have to go through support departments from various companies. One port of call to have things fixed.

Personal Support

The benefit here is that all of your services are personally handled by me, by email, phone, or Skype.

This may be particularly useful after launch, when you post new content, when you run into billing and other customer order issues, when selling from your site, or when publishing a newsletter campaign for the first time.

The bottom line...

If you’re looking for a low-cost, good value hosting provider, and you want to handle your hosting management yourself, I recommend Siteground.com.

Take up hosting with us if you’d prefer:

  • Your website billing to be all in one place
  • You’d like to rest easy knowing we’ve always got an eye on your site
  • Knowing when you need help, we’ll handle an issue for you and you won't need to go though various hosting and domain company support departments.

* Within fair reasonable use as an author website!
