SiteGround web hosting, one of the most popular WordPress hosting providers, has announced an important update.
Space Upgrade in GoGeek plan
SiteGround’s GoGeek shared hosting plans now offer 10GB more space which will be 40GB in total. GoGeek is SiteGround’s most popular shared web hosting plan used and recommended by many professional WordPress bloggers and small to medium companies.
40% Faster Processors
SiteGround had moved their infrastructure to Google Cloud few months back. As a result of this, now they are offering 40% faster processors for all their servers. Script executions on all their shared web hosting plans will become even more efficient and this will result in less resource usages and fast loading websites. This is a great news for web hosting customers using WordPress on their shared hosting plans.
Two New Data Centers
SiteGround launched two new data center locations recently – one in Sydney (Australia) and another one in Frankfurt (Germany). You can opt for these data centers if these are closer to you. This will help in faster websites.
Manual site transfer on GrowBig & GoGeek plans No more Free
Previously SiteGround provided one free manual site migration under each GrowBig and GoGeek web hosting plans which is done by their experts. But from of 20-May-2020, this manual website migration will be a paid service which will cost 30USD/24EUR/20GBP/30AUD per site. This is not a good news but neither a bad news for people who can migrate websites on their own using plugins. SiteGround itself is offering free automated WordPress transfer on all their plans using their free WordPress Migrator plugin. Using this plugin you can move your WordPress sites to SiteGround with just a few clicks.
