    Any experience with the shared hosting provided by both of them?

    Primary consideration is speed for SEO purposes.

    Can't afford VPS unfortunately. Thanks.

    I would advise to with SG as Ive dealt with some clients that had the shared namecheap for hosting... Needless to say designing took 30% longer than expected because of slow loading times.

    Stay away from Namecheap hosting at all cost. They're only good for domains.

    I suggest you to go with Siteground.

    A VPS is way cheaper then shared hosting from Siteground if you have just 1 site.

    Thanks, okay when my contract is up would move over. Did you bother using their free cloudflare CDN they provide?

    Non-technical person here unfortunately. So can't manage it myself.

    Thanks but I am a non-technical person and can't manage a VPS myself.

    You should go with site ground in my opinion. Namecheap is only good for domains as they help you with hiding your registrars information. You can use siteground preferably.

    Nope.

    Yes it is. For 5 sites and up you'll need a GrowBig plan as StartUp plan is for one site only.

    siteground is faster (considerably) but namecheap is great for new/small sites.

    QHoster.com and avansit.com are worth trying.
    It's worth paying every penny for hosting services. The bandwidth, is awesome i.e. Speed which I get customizing and lots more.

    There are plenty of shared hosting (cPanel) providers.
    The only rule you should follow is ... don't be cheap with your provider ;)

    Tired of Namecheap I decided to try Siteground... That was about 5 years ago. I'm still with Siteground. It's a superior hosting service, with no doubts.

    Namecheap for domains, Siteground for hosting.
