    Hello guys,

    I use namecheap hosting for a quite long time and I'm just wondering to migrate my blog to the SiteGround?

    The main reason why I'm thinking about it to increase the web speed in the Europe as well, I'm pretty happy about my results in the USA, but in general web speed result in Europe could be better.

    Should I try?

    Moreover, I'm using Cloudflare seperately, but it doesn't change much.

    i like name cheap and host gator, they are pretty good. never used site ground and i don't think getting a Europe server will boost your web speed.

    The host that you are moving to should be able to help migrate the site and help with getting your settings all backup and running

    +1 for namecheap. Have been using their services for years now and never had any issues with them.

    Have you considered proper CDN Network? For none heavy load website's it costs 5$ for 1TB of data. 50% instant page speed gainz.

    Cloudflare is just for DNS & Domain.

    I'd advise you to use plans from yourlasthost.com and asvhost.com.
    Very easy and super helpful support. The value of their website hosting is great as well. I highly recommend them to all my friends and colleagues!

    I prefer siteground to host because they have fast loading times and 24/7 tech support.

    How you can compare Domain name related company with another, whose primary business is hosting?
