I like Siteground, but it seems to me like the rest of these reviews are fake. The reviewer names are very plain American sounding names, but the grammar is very poor throughout. Probably written by the website owners. This review probably won`t get published.

I`ve been a very happy customer of SiteGround for a year now, but when going to renew my plan, I was shocked with the bill: it was double what I was expecting, and what I paid initially. I called up the customer service (which was traditionally good), and was pushed around and spoken to rudely. They absolutely refused to give me to any supervisors whom, despite “being in the building”, “do not speak over the phone.” In addition, the rep lied about why they offer the prices they do, changing explanations throughout the course of the phone call, and ultimately hanging up on me. While SiteGround appears to be a premium service with great rates, their performance is only above average (not premium), they are deceiving about their pricing, and are unwilling to help when it`s really needed.

Since signing up to Siteground I have not been impressed. The website builder has been extremely glitchy. Freezing consistently & failing to implement changes I had made. I contacted the online help desk which was equally disappointing. I was waiting far too long for responses which when they came were not helpful. I also have frequent delays trying to get onto the Siteground site itself, which does not fill with me confidence. Am I starting to think it might be better to cancel during the 30 day refund period – yes
