There are certainly many other hosting companies out there, some of which appear cheaper, but there is a difference between low cost and good value. I have not found a hosting company that is better than sitegound
So far, I only found more expensive alternatives. Siteground provides a decent price / value ratio. I believe there might be better hosting around, but price wise definitely more expensive.
I do not recommend any other company, but there are a lot of cheap services available in market. T
There are always "less expensive" ones but then the quality falls off. I'm happy with Site Ground and intend to stay with them.
I think their pricing is in line or better than most hosting companies. The big difference is in the professionalism, outstanding customer service and ease of using their dashboard.
Just like others have said, Siteground is very good now with their customer service, tech support, dashboard. You can find cheaper but its definitely not worth the hassle. I'm staying with them.
