1. Click your chosen SiteGround discount
The SiteGround offer above will open up a new browser window, and take you to their website when clicked. You will see the offer has been activated as the red banner will show the exclusive deal for The Webmaster visitors:
2. Choose your plan.
You will see an overview of all the different plans and features and a very helpful guide as to how many web visitors each month they are designed to handle. Once you have chosen your plan, just select the relevant "Get Started" button.
3. Choose domain
All their shared hosting plans come with a free domain as standard stated to be worth up to $14.95 per year, but of course, if you look around you could get a domain for much cheaper than this. While we tend to keep our domains in one place with a specialist domain registrar like Namecheap, Enom or NameSilo, there is no reason not to take advantage of a free domain.
If you do not want a free domain, just select "I already have a domain" and proceed to the next step.
4. Check your order and enter billing information
There are a few things that you should check here before using completing your purchase:
- Hosting plan — Make sure that you choose the right hosting plan. While most websites will only need the StartUp Plan; you may want to choose the GrowBig plan for the additional CPU resources or use of their SuperCacher technology.
- Location — Websites respond faster if they are hosted locally, as the information has less distance to travel from the server to the user.
- Billing period — With the discount, the longer you pay up front, the more you will save. You should check the discount is applied, and it shows the discount under the Savings section.
- Extra services — Most web hosts will try and up-sell with additional services, and they are no different. If you are considering Premium Support, SSL, or their basic backup service we highly recommend upgrading to their GrowBig plan where these are provided free (and costs less than ordering each of these services separately).
One you have checked all the information and entered all your billing information you simply need to wait a few hours for everything to be setup for you. Just remember that their support is second to none, so if you do have problems do just hit them up on their live chat. They will also happily move your website across from your existing host too, so again, just speak to them and they will help you out.
SiteGround cloud hosting offer
Their Cloud Hosting Plan offers increased performance , including HHVM. The billing term for their Cloud Hosting is monthly, 3-monthly or 6-monthly. With our discounts, you can get 5 percent off when you pay 3-monthly and 10 percent off when you pay 6-monthly.
The discounts will show in the billing area, under the "Purchase Information" box as shown below:

SiteGround Offers & billing FAQs
Without knowing your website, and how many visitors it gets it is difficult to provide specific advice. SiteGround do have some recommendations on the number of page views each plan can accommodate with their shared hosting, although this should be taken as a guide only as there is no page view limit attached to any of the plans. The StartUp Plan should be sufficient for 10,000 page views, GrowBig Plan for up to 25,000 page views and the GoGeek Plan for up to 100,000 page views.
If you would like all their levels of SuperCacher (i.e. dynamic caching), then you should choose either the GrowBig or the GoGeek Plan as the StartUp Plan only comes with static caching.
If you like the look of the developer features (Site Staging, GIT), then you will need the GoGeek Plan.
If you want a little more control, and full SSD hosting along with their HVVM powered Cloud (which we use for this website) then we recommend their cloud hosting.
SiteGround offers a trial of their hosting for one month but it is subject to a $14.95 setup fee to do this. After the first month, you must pay for the full twelve months as they do not have a monthly billing cycle. We do not believe this to be a cost-effective way forward.
Instead of paying for a one month trial, we recommend you pay for a year, and use our 60 percent off coupon. You then have 30 days to try them out, and if you decide they are not for you, you can request a refund under their money-back guarantee.
SiteGround offers 12-monthly, two-yearly, and three-yearly billing cycles. For maximum savings, we recommend signing up for three years when using out 60 percent off coupon.
A free domain is offered with all hosting plans, however this includes only the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .uk, .us, .biz or .info. Other domain extensions will be charged extra for.
If you exercise the right to refund, any free domain offered will be charged for at the prevailing rates (.i.e. deducted from the refund).
According to their website, SiteGround only accepts payments via Visa or MasterCard credit \ debit cards only.
That being said, we are aware of one customer contacting them via support ticket requesting to pay with PayPal, and they were sent an invoice enabling them to do so. We are unaware if this was a one-off or something they will do for all customers if requested. If this is important to you, we suggest you contact them directly.
According to their website SiteGround do not accept PayPal. However, as we mentioned above, we are aware of one customer that was able to pay by PayPal upon request. This seems to be confirmed in a recent tweet. You can request to pay via PayPal on their live-chat.
SiteGround does not accept Bitcoin at this time. If paying by Bitcoin is essential, then we suggest Namecheap.
SiteGround offers a 30-day
The money back guarantee only applies to new accounts, not renewals.
Yes, the cost of hosting will go up once you renew, as the initial discount offered by our SiteGround coupons only applies to the first invoice. During the order process, the discounted rate and the renewal rate are clearly shown.
We recommend signing up for three years to make the most of the initial discount.
SiteGround offer supports 24/7 via telephone, ticket, and online chat. They are renowned for their fast support, and our own experiences show that they usually respond to tickets within 5-10 minutes, although we have only ever used plans that come with their Premium Support as standard.
Premium support comes free with the GrowBig and GoGeek plans, as well as free for the first three months on the StartUp plans.
With Premium Support, your tickets are given higher priority in the queue with promises to resolve the issues more quickly. Also, submitting a support ticket is easier as you do not need to select a category for your support ticket. Without a doubt, we recommend having Premium Support, and specifically, we would recommend the GrowBig plan that comes with this as standard, as other great features such as all three levels of SuperCacher, and daily backups.
In our opinion, yes. The backup service, which comes free with GrowBig and GoGeek plans and a small additional fee for StartUp plans, is essential. The Backup Service will store 30 days worth of backups for your account, so should you get hacked or do something that breaks your website you will have peace of mind that you can restore an earlier version.
Moreover, you can restore specific files \ databases which are incredibly useful for fine tuning any restorations.
You get 20 percent off the Backup Service when ordering at the same time as your Startup Hosting account, but like we said, it is more cost effective to purchase a higher plan that has this (and more) free.
This is a third party service (not included in money-back guarantee) that scans up to 10 random pages of your website each day searching for malware. If such code is found, you will be immediately alerted by email enabling you to take action. If no malware or suspicious code is found, you will receive a report each week showing which pages were scanned and the results.
When you purchase the HackAlert monitoring at the same time as your hosting account, you will receive 50 percent off. It is billed yearly.
