InterServer vs SiteGround (Sept 2017) – “Here’s the Bottom Line …”

305

Here’s our comparison of two impressive web hosts that are both great for multi-website hosting. I personally use both SiteGround and InterServer, so I can give you a first-hand account of the advantages both have to offer.

InterServer and SiteGround are both great choices for bloggers and entrepreneurs. And while each has its strengths and can be used for similar types of websites, there is definitely a better fit depending on which customer base you fit into.

If you prefer managed hosting features and plan to use WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla for your site, then SiteGround is definitely the better choice. SiteGround provides automated updates, extensive backup and restore options, and their proprietary SuperCacher Technology for faster site loading times. SiteGround’s customer support department is clearly one of the best in terms of responsiveness and helpfulness that I’ve ever dealt with.

InterServer continues to impress us with the features and value they provide at a very low cost. Their price lock guarantee means that you don’t have to worry about sky rocketing renewal rates. The price you pay when you sign up is the same amount you pay at renewal time. So, while their sign up fees are low, the equally low renewal fees make InterServer one of the best hosting deals around.

We definitely like both of these web hosts for many types of websites. I would recommend InterServer is you’re looking for a quality budget hosting option that still offers unlimited storage and transfer along with multiple domain hosting. I would go with SiteGround if you need more premium features for a content management website.
