Fancy switching hosts? I had an email about a special offer for website hosting with SiteGround and thought it might of interest to some of you. I use them myself, and found them to have brilliant customer service and they completely helped me, as mentioned in my self-hosting post about how to switch to a self-hosted blog.
I don’t particularly want my blog to be one big advert so I’m sorry if you’ve received an email and don’t care about this (I promise there’s lots coming up!), but I do know a lot of fellow bloggers who might like to make the switch. SiteGround are the cheapest hosts I found as well, so this makes the offer even better!
For this week, they’re offering a free domain and site transfer – they actually do the hard work for you!
You can also get up to 6 months free hosting, depending on how long you had left with your other hosts, so you end up saving money!
The whole offer:
SiteGround hosting accounts purchased between the promotion run dates of September 1st to September 8th come with the following additional benefits.
Free Website Migration
SiteGround will migrate one website to your new account free of charge. You can claim it in the getting started wizard upon your first login, or later by visiting the Support Tab in the User Area.
Free Domain Transfer
One free domain transfer can be claimed per account purchased during the promotional period, given that no free domain has been registered during sign-up. The domain transfer can be claimed by visiting the Add Services Tab -> Domain Transfer. It must be claimed by October 8th.
The free domain transfer must be for one of these tlds: .com, .net, .org, .biz, or .info. For clients from certain countries, the local country-specific domains may also be available for free.
Free Hosting For Early Switch
SiteGround will compensate up to 6 months of hosting time, matching the remaining term you have prepaid with your previous hosting provider.
- The free hosting bonus must be claimed by October 8th.
- The compensation is valid for shared hosting accounts with a plan length of 12 months or more.
- The plan with your previous provider must have been purchased before September 1st, 2016.
Once you are a SiteGround customer, you can claim your free months by visiting Support Tab -> Billing Assistance -> Claim Promotional Hosting Bonus in your User Area. You will need to submit an acceptable form of proof for prepaid hosting services, which can be any of the following: credit card statement showing charge for annual billing; welcome email from the web hosting company showing start date and plan length; receipt showing start date and plan length; or, any other document showing the starting date and the period of the account.
Who are you hosting with? Would you consider switching?
