After this, I have decided for a new web hosting service. I opt for Site ground which ranked good among the several web hosting providers, its prices were good and whatever I required in the terms of web hosting features all offered by them. Their customer service is also good. I got more than my old host and the good thing is that all at the same price only. So, I have decided that I switched to Site ground.. The customer care rep of the company were well qualified, talented and experienced, they have a huge database of information, they were knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful in making the transition to their company and system.
This was the situation few years ago, and then I face very few problems but still they are with me in a very friendly manner and always helpful in solving the problems. I host three domains through Site ground and I trust this web site. I renewed my hosting service and renewed two of my domains for next year.
Highly recommended site ground. The company will provide you services at a cheaper rate and you will get the return for what you paid. The company serves you with good quality service and customer support

I am feeling very happy after using the services of site ground. The company offers very good features. Before choosing this provider, I go through the reviews and also done research on various on-line forums, so that the correct web hosting provider can be chosen. After reading the reviews, I select the top three web hosting providers and among them I select this one. This is my first experience with commercial web hosting provider. I am also very happy because in a very less time, the company allows me to purchase my domain name and web space so that I can upload my website and all this happens in one day. They provide good support in a very friendly manner

I was using the services of this company from last 4 years and whenever I need their assistance; their customer care rep was always there for my support. They talk to me very politely, listen my problem with patience, guide me step by step and resolve my problem on instant basis. They are also trained very well especially in the technical field, so we can call them technical expertise also. All the staff members are very helpful as people do not understand technical terms and terminology, they do not have knowledge of technology also, so they always need technical help. Another good thing is that these reps are reliable; this is required as people do not have knowledge so whatever steps are guided by them, and people follow them with blind eyes. They also gave you some ideas which can improve your problem. It allows you to feel safe and confident…Good work.

It is required also as people do not know so much about technology, they do not understand technical terms, terminology so staff with technical knowledge is required at foremost level. And the company is having this kind of staff, so no need to worry about anything. Whenever I face any kind of problem, their expertise helped me a lot. And finally my problem also gets resolved.

I am using this web hosting provider to serve my web hosting needs. I am happy with this, as it did well for a very long period. Their services were also worked well but suddenly something went wrong in their customer service. Actually problem arises with the language..Language problem..Now customer care rep live in different state so their language is totally different, they do not understand my language so I cannot make them understand my problem in a better way as I done earlier. As my problem was simple so, spammers were allowed by them on their system due to which my e-mails were getting constantly blacklisted, and thus not even a single spam sent by me.
