How to Sign Up With SiteGround Hosting?
1. Choose your hosting plan
SiteGround has three plans and one can sign for any of them with a great discount. It is also good to make a recommendation for the most appropriate plan to your audience:
The StartUp plan is perfect for beginners that are starting out; this plan lets you host 1 website, get 10GB of web space and is suitable for sites that get ~ 10,000 visits per month.
The GrowBig plan is a great value for money plan and is ideal for WordPress powered sites. This plan includes the option for hosting multiple websites, 20GB of web space, suitable for sites with ~25,000 monthly visits, plust it comes with SiteGround’s SuperCacher, a tool that greatly improves a WordPress and Joomla site page speed.
The GoGeek plan is best suited for ecommerce and large websites that are a bit more resource intense, or if you are after more geeky things like staging and GIT integration. This plan includes the option for hosting multiple websites, 30GB of web space, suitable for sites that get ~100,000 monthly visits.
2. Choosing Domain
Clients can choose to buy a new domain, or sign up with an existing domain. This is a good place to emphasize the free website transfer, which is included for GrowBig and GoGeek plans.
3. Review and Complete
Unlike many other hosting providers our advertised discount applies to any of the initial periods chosen during the sign up process. Being able to get the low price for the one year period is a fact that increases conversions greatly in comparison to other providers where the lowest monthly price applies only for the longest period. So highlighting this fact may strongly increase your conversions.
Next is the third and final step, where you create your account, fill out your personal details, your payment information (including PayPal) and the hosting options you want. Here below is a step-by-step guide.
This is is the standard stuff you have done a million times before; email, password, first and last name, country, phone number, etc.
Next is to give SiteGround your credit card details (Visa, MasterCard or Discover). Now you might ask, can I pay with PayPal? Yes you can.
You can use PayPal to pay for your hosting (I did). All you need to do is leave the payment details empty and reach out to SiteGround’s Sales Team using the Live Chat button (on top of the site in the main navigation).
Next is to choose your hosting services, addons and pay for your hosting. There are the two things to factor in here.
First thing is to choose the location of your preferred data center. Choose a location based on where you are and where your customer/audience is geographically located (i.e. if you are in the United States pick Chicago, if you are in Australia choose Singapore).
Second thing is to decide if you need the SG Site Scanner addon. SG Site Scanner is a monitoring service that checks your website daily and immediately notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code.
Great work, now you have signed up with SiteGround. Now you will receive an email confirming your order and another email with the login to your SiteGround Customer Area.
