Shared Server Hosting

The preferred Joomla!® hosting provider of usingjoomla.com provides three shared server hosting package options:




Which package you select depends on your website hosting requirements.

Each hosting package in-a-nutshell:

StartUp: This hosting package option gives you all the hosting essentials you would require for a "getting started" website or an average sized blog or personal website.

GrowBig: This hosting package would be suitable if you require more resources than a StartUp package, or a greater degree of features.GrowBig package would be suitable for a single more heavily visited website or multiple average sized websites. Ideal for people who want to host multiple sites in one hosting account.

GoGeek: If you have a resource-intensive or heavily-visited website GoGeek would be a good choice. GoGeek customers are hosted on a server with fewer customers - therefore fewer customers share the available resources - meaning each customer is able to utilise a greater proportion of those resources. The GoGeek package is ideal for eCommerce websites because the server is PCI compliant.

Below we show you a more detailed comparison table of SiteGround's shared server packages.
