The Best Web Hosting in Ireland

"What is the best web hosting in Ireland?" Simple answer... SiteGround. I've used so many of the hosting providers over the years; I was with Bluehost for a long time, and even GoDaddy for while (I don't like to talk about it, it still gives me nightmares). But for a number of years now I've been with SiteGround Web Hosting; all of my business and personal websites are with them, but also, every one of my clients websites are hosted with them. I have to trust them, because the hosting I give my clients is a reflection on FutureProof Digital, and that matters to me. In this post I'll explain why.

For the business owner there are really only three questions to ask about a web hosting provider; How fast will my website be? How good is their customer service? and how much does it cost per year? That’s how we answer the question “What is the best web hosting in Ireland?” SiteGround is the fasted hosting provider out there, their customer service is second to none and, for what you get, they are by far the cheapest. Let’s look at each in turn, starting with speed.

SiteGround Paper Bird

The Fastest Web Hosting in Ireland

There are some technical aspects here; SiteGround uses the latest software and hardware in their data centres, they use the latest version of PHP, the code that runs your database. But what really sets them apart as the best web hosting in Ireland is the free CDN and Optimizer plugin.

CDN – In simple terms, a content delivery network stores copies of your website in multiple locations and your visitors view the closest one to them. Other hosts charge a lot of money for this service, with SiteGround it’s free.

SG Optimizer Plugin – This WordPress plugin, only available to SiteGround users, does so much you would ordinarily pay for. It stores copies of your site on browser for fast access, it optimises your images as you upload them, it combines and compresses your code files, it handles your https. All of this adds up to one thing… speed.

The Best Web Hosting Customer Support

The number 1 reason why SiteGround user recommend them to clients, family and friends, everyone, is the customer service. For me, this is why they are the best web hosting in Ireland. If you can’t find the answer to your question yourself in the comprehensive and easy to understand documentation, then you can call, email, or (and this is what I use) use the live chat, the staff will talk you through anything. I pride myself on customer service, it’s an integral part of all FutureProof Digital projects, and I’ve learned a lot from how SiteGround do things.

SiteGround have capable & well-prepared staff. They undergo intensive training, a long mentorship period, and get frequent feedback and evaluations of their work to keep their expertise at its best. They have a friendly & helpful attitude and they take the time to educate our clients how to become capable webmasters.

The SiteGround support system recommends the fastest and most relevant channel for your specific request, Inquiries are quickly answered and tickets receive a first reply within 15 minutes on average and 90% of issues are resolved on the first call.

The Best Value Web Hosting in Ireland

And lastly, price. You can click on any of the links here and check out the prices for yourself, but for the quality of service described above you would pay any other provider at least 3 times more. Yes, you can get GoDaddy hosting for just a few euros per month, but you really do get what you pay for… trust me, you don’t get a lot. For less than €200 per year, and a huge discount in your first year, you get grade A professional hosting for hobby money. It’s a no brainer in my eyes.

“We keep track of which hosts we get a lot of support requests for, so we can reach out to them. We had a hard time finding SiteGround in that list as we had so few complaints from customers hosted with them.”

The Best Web Hosting in Ireland

Over the past few months I’ve had a number of clients ask me why I use SiteGround, and I can understand why they would ask. They’re not a household name, there are no adverts on TV featuring Harry Redknapp or Freddie Flintoff, but don’t let that fool you. Everyone in the industry knows, that if you are developing WordPress websites, you need SiteGround. They’re not just the best web hosting in Ireland, they’re the best web hosting anywhere in the world.
