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 on shared servers. However, their plans renew at a pretty expensive prices after your inital period (about twice the price) and this lowers the score for these plans. 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. This plan also comes with the useful web developer and webmaster features like Git and staging sites for WordPress and Joomla.

No discounts for choosing longer contracts. All prices are for month-to-month contracts. Prices does not include tax.

Premium web hosting

Liquid Web is a premium web host which offers lots and lots of hosting add-ons for security, software and performance. They have a wide selection of powerful web hosting plans available at their 3 data centers located in USA Central, USA West, and EU West. All of Liquid Web's hosting plans are suitable for adult web hosting, but there is one exception, and that is when using the Akamai CDN - so don't use that if your sites contain adult content!

Fast cloud hosting w/ CDN

The cloud VPS plans from Liquid Web claims to be the fastest managed VPS servers on the planet. The performance of each vCPU core would minimum be that of a regular 2.4 GHz physical core. The storage is 100% SSD disks. The benefit of hosting in the cloud is the easy scalability at once when you need it. If your website is growing fast or might have huge traffic spikes you would be prepared with a cloud VPS plan or a cloud dedicated plan from Liquid Web. You can also scale down the amount of resources if you need to. The Cloudflare Pro CDN for one domain is included with every VPS hosting plan (worth $20/mo). This makes this web hosting plan excellent for businesses or individuals that have visitors of high importance from around the world.

cPanel or Plesk is $10/mo and is included in our listed price, you can choose to include neither to get cheaper hosting. Daily Backups costs $0.12/mo per GB and is kept for up to 90 days if you specify to keep it for that long that on the billing page. You can upgrade the monthly bandwidth limit to 10 TB for an extra $50/mo or all the way up to 20 TB for an extra $100/mo.

Data center location

Choose between hosting in USA Central, USA West or EU West. USA Central is the default and also the cheapest option. USA West and EU West will increase the monthly bill substantially. I am glad they have multiple options though!

USA based suppport

24/7 live chat support, phone support and ticket support both sales and technical. All of their support is based in the USA providing the highest quality of english speaking support!

Conclusion

This is great host with a large USA based support team and fast servers. It does not come cheap though which is a drawback. So is the fact that there is no money back guarantee.

This is one of the few adult web hosting solutions for WordPress specific web hosting. You can of course also host non-adult websites with Liquid Web, I just want to share that they do also accept adult content on their hosted websites.
