Pay for 1 year of web hosting in advance to get the discounted price of $3.74/mo. If you pay for 2 or 3 years in advance you will get greater discounts and prices of $3.56/mo or $3.37/mo. If you rather want to pay month-to-month it will cost you $6.74 for the first month then $8.99/mo.

Maximize your discount

The shared hosting plans by Hostwinds are currently on sale by 25% - 63% for your first order, so choose long length billing cycles to increase your discount and maximize your savings!

Plan features

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https very easily and for FREE. Website Monitoring can help your site stay online if your website run into issues when you are not online to respond by automatically creating a support ticket if your site goes offline. It costs $1.75/mo. Daily Backups costs $3/mo. A domain is not included with this hosting plan but you can register one at their website. A .com costs $11.99/year with Hostwinds which is decent.

Data center location

Choose between Seattle and Dallas in the USA to be your server's location.

24/7 live support

The Hostwinds support is great and sales support is really quick to respond with the chat box on the homepage of Hostwinds. For technical support requests you need to post a ticket. The support is based in the USA and is fluent in the language as well as very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Conclusion

If you need web hosting on a server in the USA then I would strongly suggest to consider a Hostwinds plan. They get good scores from me for having lots of payment options, USA based support team, long money back guarantees and the best uptime guarantees. They also allow adult content on all plans.

All the Hostwinds shared web hosting plans only have 1 GB of RAM unfortunately, and that is a pretty big drawback. They don't have fast SSD storage either. The only difference between the 3 plans is the max amount of websites you can host.

Inital period discounted

The first billing cycle are on sale at 50% off and that is the price that we have listed here. Pre pay for up to 3 years to lock in that price for a long time. If you want to be billed monthly there is a set up fee for this hosting plan and you will only get the discount for the first month. Prices are excluding tax.

Fast web servers but expensive domains

All the shared web hosting plans by SiteGround comes with fast SSD storage, free SSL from Free Let's Encrypt and HTTP/2 enabled servers. As well as free Daily Backups and Unmetered Bandwidth. Registering a .com domain will currently cost you $15.95/year and Whois Privacy is $12/year. Check out our Domain Guide for cheaper domains and whois privacy. SG Site Scanner is a monitoring service that checks your website daily and notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code so you can fix it ASAP, it costs $19.80/year.

Data center location

Select between 5 different data centers all with the same plan features and the same prices. The locations you can choose from are Chicago, Amsterdam, Singapore, London, Milano.

SiteGround informs that this plan is suitable for one website with up to ~10.000 monthly visits (~333 daily).

EU support team

The SiteGround support team is located in Bulgaria in the EU.

Conclusion

Siteground has some of the best speed tech for delivering lighting fast website hosting. However, the plan will renew at a pretty expensive price after your inital period (about twice the price) and this lowers the score for this plan. Also, expensive domain names and whois privacy is a slight downside that is easily avoidable though by using another domain registrar.

The GoGeek plan is only about twice the price of their GrowBig plan but is suitable for websites with an estimate of up to 4 times the traffic, making this a high value plan for the right websites.

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https for free and automatically. The cost of upgrading to SSD drives depends on which VPS plan you choose. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans, but cPanel is actually an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2 per extra standard IP address. Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups makes sure your data is safe and accessible and costs only $1/mo and is performed daily. WindSpeed is a one time service offered by Hostwinds which claims to be able to provide information which can be used to significantly speed up a website. Windshield is a security extra which adds a shield to your site.

I would have liked to see SSD storage as in included feature at no extra cost. The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space, that can't be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat. With a huge selection of 10 different VPS plans you are sure to find a plan that suits your needs.
