This makes them a great option for online business website hosting. And because SiteGround offers such a wide array of hosting options, as your website grows and it's needs increase, it's easy to simply scale up to the next hosting tier.

That said, with the amount of hosting options, extras, and technicalities, SiteGround could seem a bit intimidating and complex for beginners to navigate. I've been using SiteGround to run a few small online projects, and also for testing and development.

I'm on their GrowBig plan. And their reputation holds up -- SiteGround is one of the best web hosting companies serving online businesses.

For shared hosting -- which is likely a perfect for you if you want to keep your costs low -- they offer three plans, StartUp, GrowBig, and GoGeek. SiteGround's cheapest hosting plan, StartUp, comes in at just $3.95 per month.

But be careful, that's just for the first year. After that, the price jumps up to $11.95 per month. All SiteGround plans come with a free SSL certificate, email, CDN (which increases site speed), free daily website backups, a free website builder on all plans, and a few other odds and ends.

Each plan also uses the industry-standard cPanel control interface, which includes one-click installers for popular web applications like WordPress and Drupal, as well as popular online business and e-commerce applications.

And aside from their smallest plan, each tier also allows you to run multiple websites from a single hosting account. This is fantastic if you want to host several online business ventures.
