I have used SiteGround hosting for several years now and have not been disappointed. Before moving my site/wordpress to them I was with a previous company, in which my site was continually down and loading slow. To date I have not had that problem with SiteGround. They have 24/7 “chat” support, which I love. Yes, even at 3am, I can get help. When you purchase a hosting package from them, they will load wordpress onto your site for you, all you have to do is ask!
