I did it. I switched my hosting company from BlueHost to SiteGround. It took a few days for everything to get into place but now it is done. SiteGround was helpful during the process; BlueHost was less so. As in past experiences, the best way to contact BlueHost and get results was via chat.
My goal in making the switch was for it to be seamless and invisible so no one would even know I had changed hosts. That worked so I was very happy. As far as logging in to work on posts, I do that through WordPress. The login is the same.
For the first year, I got a special Black Friday rate so it is cheaper than BlueHost would have been. If I stay with SiteGround, next year it will be more expensive. However, I am stopping SiteLock because SiteGround persuaded me that my site would be secure without it. Because SiteLock was so expensive, I will be saving a lot by discontinuing it.
My main concern in choosing a new host was security. BlueHost was useless when my website got hacked. Hopefully I won’t get hacked again. If I do, I am hoping SiteGround will be helpful in fixing whatever problems occur.
