SiteGround is a very reputable hosting for WordPress. And if you're looking for a WordPress host, they are a good choice. That said, if you are looking for WooCommerce hosting, we believe WooCart is a far better fit.
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 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!
After some research, we stumbled across WooCart and it's a blast: great (and scalable) performance and exceptional customer service. They helped us set everything up (thanks to the store Wizard you are ready to go in minutes), recommended suitable plugins, and kept an eye on our store metrics.
Together with transactional emails out of the box and Lossless Staging, we now can fully concentrate on our business - always knowing, that if we need just anything the WooCart team is just a single click away, ready to help!

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.
