Why we picked it:
SiteGround offers unique cloud hosting options that differ from traditional dedicated server offerings. Customers have the option to select from four pre-determined plans, starting at $100 per month, or to create a custom plan tailored to their specific resource requirements. The Jump Start plan provides four CPU cores, 8GB of RAM, 40GB of SSD storage and 5TB of bandwidth.
For those who desire a custom plan, the site provides a convenient slider feature to adjust cores (up to 33), memory (up to 130GB) and storage (up to 1TB). It should be noted that bandwidth remains constant, while increases in cores, RAM, and storage drive up the overall cost. Should a site experience an unexpected spike in traffic, additional resources can be easily added at any time to accommodate the increased demand.
Who should use it:
SiteGround provides a unique cloud hosting solution that enables clients to tailor their plan to meet specific resource requirements. This feature provides clients with the flexibility to add or adjust resources as needed, making it a suitable option for businesses that anticipate changing resource needs over time.
