SiteGround is a very popular host for WordPress and if you're looking for a basic host, they are a common and cheap choice. That said, if you are looking for WooCommerce hosting, they are not the best solution.
While we may be biased, we are confident that WooCart is the better solution for your store. Let us explain.
We host only WooCommerce. Nothing else, not even WordPress, much less any other platform. SiteGround has hosting for everything. Just like you don't go to the supermarket for high-end audio equipment, so shouldn't you use a general host for your WooCommerce store.
Here are a few things WooCart does better because we specialize in WooCommerce:
We've configured everything around WooCommerce and performance. Dedicated resources on Google Cloud give you far more control and better page speed than SiteGround's shared hosting.
WooCart's Lossless Staging allows you to easily merge staging with live without loss of order or customer data. SiteGround's staging will overwrite all your orders and customers on the live store.
Everything, from the dashboard to tools, is built around the requirements and needs of store owners, not bloggers or general businesses.
All this means faster stores and more conversions, easier updates, and less stress over potential hacks and tools to make your WooCommerce store simpler to manage.
I approached WooCart as we wanted a specialist WooCommerce hosting company that could help squeeze extra value from every single visitor.
WooCart certainly delivered! Not only have they helped us increase the load speed of our stores but they have also saved us a ton of money in hosting fees at the same time, bonus!
If you are looking for WooCommerce hosting, I would recommend WooCart all day long!

SiteGround offers a basic staging environment, where when you publish the staging store, it overwrites the live version. If orders were made in the meantime, they will be lost, as well as data of all new customers.
Because WooCart works only with WooCommerce, we know exactly what changes are made, and we download them before publishing the staging store. That's why we call it Lossless Staging - because there will be no loss of data.
After moving all three of my stores to WooCart I'm convinced this is the way WooCommerce should have been built from the beginning. WooCart gets us out of all the WooCommerce tech headaches so we can focus on running our business. Huge thanks to the WooCart team for their amazing support and product.
WooCart was built from the ground up for WooCommerce stores, and not just as an add-on to an existing offer. We also know the requirements of WooCommerce users better and have built tools to fulfill them.
And even though SiteGround is cheaper, just one conversion on your store due to faster page load, or an hour saved with Lossless Staging will more than cover the difference in the price.
Plus, we have a free trial so you can easily try us out!
