Our customers consistently rate their support experience as excellent.

Based on the last 200 support ratings we have received which are asked for on every ticket. Last updated: Today

When the team working on this website asked us to write a quick message about why we started SiteHost and why we think you should trust your hosting with us we thought it would be impossible to explain in just a few short lines.

Now we know it is. Nothing we write or show you will earn your business or your trust, that takes time. We also won’t promise you 100% uptime or that we will never make a mistake, because sometimes outages happen and can’t be avoided.

Instead, what we can say is that the whole team works hard each day to provide a better hosting experience than you can get anywhere else (that’s why we started SiteHost) and we would love the opportunity to earn your trust the proper way; slowly but surely.
