Most of the people who believe they are “good” are those who contrast them with hosts such as Bluehost, GoDaddy, and others. However, these make SiteGround appear like Bluehost all over again when compared to ChemiCloud (shared) or Rocket.net (cloud) with their 100ms average global TTFB.
You can use the “LiteSpeed setup” on ChemiCloud (LiteSpeed server + LiteSpeed Cache + QUIC.cloud CDN) for a cost comparable to SiteGround’s GrowBig plan. Almost always, this is more affordable or faster than GrowBig. You can get a <100ms global TTFB on Rocket.net with 32 CPU cores + 128GB RAM and Cloudflare Enterprise for about the same price as SiteGround’s cloud hosting.
Both offer greater server resources, higher TrustPilot ratings, and better support, so you’re less likely to experience CPU limits like with SiteGround. Faster technologies like NVMe SSDs are also used by both.
This plan differs from others primarily in that it does not impose resource or inode limitations. Redis, NVMe SSDs, and MariaDB all result in a quicker setup. I would stick with ChemiCloud or Rocket.net if your visitors are from outside the US, though, as they only use NVMe in the US data center. They also use a custom control panel called SPanel rather than cPanel, which is another (significant) difference. It does require some getting used to, but there are a number of benefits over cPanel, including resource efficiency.
Once more, a lot of people migrate from Scala to SiteGround, but not the other way around. Facebook groups don’t receive a lot of feedback because SiteGround deletes comments mentioning other hosts. However, after using their hosting, I can say that Scala’s servers are unquestionably quicker than SG’s.
The two main benefits of FastComet, which also uses LiteSpeed, are that it is less expensive and offers both CPU cores and RAM. But is it still worthwhile to use SATA SSDs and MySQL if you’re only paying $2/month less than ChemiCloud? MariaDB and faster NVMe storage are worth the extra $2/month, but that’s obviously up to you. Other than that, both are comparable to SiteGround’s shared hosting but with faster speed and better support.
ASPHostPortal is a specialist Windows ASP.NET hosting provider that also provides Linux shared hosting plans plus cloud hosting, reseller hosting, email hosting, and associated services such as domain registration.
This company markets itself as the “#1 Recommended Windows and ASP.NET Spotlight Hosting Partner in the United States,” and it hosts more than 50,000 websites. It has been in business for over a decade, and it has 12 data centers across Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Australia. Its website is in English.
Most ASPHostPortal plans run on a Windows server and use the Plesk control panel rather than cPanel. But it does offer a few Linux-based shared hosting, cloud hosting, and dedicated server plans for which you can purchase cPanel.
