In June 2020, SiteGround increased its prices…again.
SiteGround had already had a big price increase in 2018, so these back-to-back price increases mean that SiteGround is no longer one of the cheapest web hosts like it was in the past. These price increases, combined with SiteGround’s strict CPU limitations, might have you searching for the best alternatives to SiteGround.
Don’t get me wrong – even with the price increase and CPU limitations, SiteGround is still one of the best shared hosts. The SiteGround team recently moved all their infrastructure to Google Cloud and also launched their own custom hosting dashboard, so they are working hard to justify the price increases.

5 Best SiteGround Alternatives
Bluehost is an excellent affordable alternative to SiteGround for two reasons:
- Bluehost’s prices are lower than SiteGround, especially after SiteGround’s recent price increase. You also get a free domain name for your first year, which SiteGround doesn’t offer.
- Bluehost gives you unlimited resources, whereas SiteGround applies limits to your storage and CPU seconds.
Bluehost also offers many of the same features as SiteGround including:
- Beginner-friendly WordPress installer tool
- Free SSL certificates
- Automatic WordPress updates
- Staging sites
Best of all, Bluehost’s plans start at just $3.95. However, most people will benefit more from the $5.95 per month Plus plan because it adds support for unlimited websites and storage.
- Bluehost is significantly cheaper than SiteGround after SiteGround’s recent price increase. You’ll also get a free domain name.
- Bluehost offers unlimited resources (except for the Basic plan).
- Bluehost doesn’t offer free website migration, so you’ll need to manually migrate WordPress.
