CONS OF SITEGROUND

In comparison with other web hosts, SiteGround’s storage space lacks a bit on the small size. There are undoubtedly good reasons for the limitations. The more data customers store on their shared servers, the more likely it is that they’ll experience slow load times and server response times.

2. Storage Limitations
