Full-Service WordPress Hosting For All Types Of Sites
SiteGround makes your WordPress site management easier!
1. Fast WordPress Launch
Click-and-Install WordPress – We save you the trouble of downloading, installing, and configuring WordPress manually by offering a simple click-and-install option. Our system takes care of everything right at the beginning so you can start customizing your WordPress site faster.
Launch a Beautiful and Functional Site – Once you install WordPress through our automated installer and you log into your site’s admin panel, you will be able to use our unique WordPress Starter. This tool allows you to choose from a selected collection of professional site designs and add key functionalities like contact forms, an online store, a portfolio, and more. All the features you select are automatically installed on your site, turning the standard default WordPress installation into a beautiful and fully-functional website in minutes – no technical knowledge required!
2. Free WordPress Transfer
Free WordPress Migrator – Migrating a website with our WordPress Migrator is super easy and free. You just need to install our Migrator plugin on the site you want to migrate, get a token from your SiteGround control panel and put it in the plugin. The Migrator will securely move all of your content while keeping your configuration intact. The best thing is that it’s completely free and you can use it for as many migrations as you wish.
Professional Transfer Service – Get your WordPress migrated by one of our experts. If you are migrating from a cPanel host, we can also migrate your email, FTP, and add-on sites. The service is free for one site on the GrowBig and GoGeek plans. If you have more WordPress sites to transfer, we charge as low as $30.00 per site and do all the work for you! We migrate more than 50,000 sites per year and know all the ins-and-outs of making the process smooth and risk-free.
3. Managed WordPress Security & Updates
Automatic WordPress Updates – Keeping your WordPress application up-to-date with the latest version is an important step in maintaining a secure site. If you find the update process difficult or simply forget to keep track of the new releases, our automatic WordPress software and plugin updates are for you. You can also schedule how fast your site is updated after a new version is released or even skip a version if you need more time to prepare for the update.
Custom Firewall Rules To Patch Vulnerabilities – We manage the overall security of your application at a server and firewall level by keeping track of WordPress-related vulnerabilities and patching against exploits. We add dozens of such rules each year and we are able to protect your sites even before the official developers release a security update.
4. Unmatched WordPress Performance
Unique Caching Options – WordPress instances hosted on SiteGround are amazingly fast. By default we enable static caching for all sites on our servers, which means that certain items, like your images for example, will load faster from the memory of the server. However, the biggest impact on the WordPress loading speed is achieved by using the higher levels of our SuperCacher service and connecting your site with our NGINX-based dynamic cache and Memcached service through our SG Optimizer plugin (the option is available on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans).
Optimal PHP and HTTPS Setup – You can easily set the optimal PHP version for your WordPress through our plugin and start using our HTTPS option properly with a click. Both these options ensure increase in the website loading speed.
Application optimisations – Automatic image optimizations, lazy image loading, GZIP compression, CSS&HTML minifications and more are also included in our SG Optimizer plugin. By adding them too, we allow our users to have all-in-one solution, custom built for the SiteGround hosting environment. That allows you to get the best possible performance results from a single plugin, instead of using multiple optimization plugins.

Awesome Tools For WordPress Webmasters
Building and maintaining a WordPress site is easy with our thoughtfully designed tools.
All hosting plans include free Let’s Encrypt Standard and Wildcard SSL certificates. For your convenience, the Standard SSL comes preinstalled on your site.
Having an SSL is more than just a best practice for websites, it’s an industry standard. SSL certificates protect the data transmitted through your site and make sure you meet the requirements of search engines that flag unsecured sites. That is why we believe any client of ours should have an SSL installed on their website. To help you do that, we partnered and financially supported since its founding the Let’s Encrypt project, which offers free SSL for anyone. We developed an in-house integration with Let’s Encrypt that allows us to automatically issue and renew their certificates for a hassle-free user experience. All new sites hosted on our platform get the free Standard SSL enabled. Clients may switch to a free Wildcard SSL at any time from their control panel.
We back up your account daily and keep up to 30 copies. You also have the option to create instant on-demand backups with the click of a button.
Sleep easy knowing your site is fully backed up in case of data loss, hacking, or human error. We automatically save daily backups and keep 30 copies on your account. A full backup restore is the fastest way to restore your site and limit the effects of website downtime on your site traffic. The restores are free on GrowBig and GoGeek plans and cost only $19.95 one-time fee on the StartUp plan. In addition to our automated backups, customers can generate backups on demand from their control panel. The service costs $29.95 and is free on our GoGeek plan.
Create unlimited email accounts with the webmail interface included. Stop spam with the free SpamExperts service.
Create professional email addresses with your website domain at no extra cost. You can create as many accounts as you need, access them using a friendly webmail interface, create forwarders and autoresponders, and more.
Making changes on your site has never been easier. Make a copy of your site in a click, work on it, and then push the changes live with our staging tool.
Many of our customers maintain dynamic sites that require updates and changes as their businesses grow. However, big changes can be risky and it’s a good practice to test any major change in a safe environment that won’t affect your live site. We’ve developed a tool that creates a copy of your site, allows you to work on the testing site, and then push the changes to your live site with confidence, in one click! Just to be on the safe side, we also perform automatic backups each time you upload a staging version to production. The tool is available on GoGeek plan.
Advanced users will love our tools like WP-CLI, SSH access, PHP version control, Git integration and more that make workflows easy and fast.
If you like managing your WordPress site through command line we have WP-CLI installed on our servers and available for use on all plans. We also provide SSH access to your account and allow you to choose the PHP version for each folder. For seamless Git integration of your WordPress we have added a tool in the control panel of our GoGeek accounts.
