Siteground = No
Here’s the deal with them.. They are like one of those fine-print car salesmen type of hosts..
Fine Print SCAM
Sign up for 1 month for $9.99 , as soon as it expires we’ll charge you for a YEAR! That’s $120!! Sure they tell you in the fine print, but that’s just shady, on top of all that they WON’T give you a refund, just u.. Godaddy gave me all of my money back no BS, but I can’t run magento on Godaddy unfortunately.
No Phone Support
There’s a ticket system which has a fast response time, but they bury it in links on their site.. For instance , just to report a problem, you have have to:
2. Click “MY Account”
3. Click “Support”
4. Click on “Hosting problem”
5.Click on CPanel issue
6. Scroll to the very bottom and click “my issue was not found here”
It’s a joke! They purposely try to deter you by making you click all over the place, like I said this company is really shady.
CAN’T EXPORT PRODUCTS!
This is an essential feature, let’s say you have a client that updates his products and sometimes exports his products to resellers.. Good luck with SG.. You have to do custom phpmyadmin queries.. Sure it works with that workaround, but if you advertise your hosting as “Magento Supported” and can’t do a simple export, what can I say....
CAN’T DELETE PRODUCTS! (over 30)
Times out!! WTH!! So If I have to delete 3000 products there goes my weekend.. Again there is a workaround by truncating a table in phpmyadmin, but this is pathetic, can’t delete more than 30!
CAN’T IMPORT PRODUCTS (over 3000)
I’m surprised it could even handle that many products! , You can simply split up your file to get around this., I could live with this limitation.
Unlimited traffic - Unlimited web space - Unlimited email accounts - LIE!!!
BUT NO UNLIMITED INODES!??!?!? WTH?
Siteground wanted to get your business with some pretty tempting statements… Unlimited traffic, space, etc…
But they came up with a new metric called “inodes” and they limit it!
I used up all of them before my site even went public! This is a joke!
It’s like saying you can have unlimited disk space, just don’t use that FAT table..
This company is too shady, I’m dropping them and looking for a new host.
