  1. Thanks so much for this article. You answered all of the questions I had about the differences between the two. I am migrating a 10 year old blog from Blogger to WordPress. It’s not a high traffic site, but it’s established and has a lot of potential. I’ve been agonizing over whether to choose Siteground or BigScoots, as I don’t have a huge income from the blog. Given the cost of setting up a new theme, the hosting, the migration, etc., I’ve been balking a little bit about the cost of BigScoots. I’m thinking, though, that because I want to grow my blog significantly this year, it might be my best choice. (I will probably keep agonizing for a while, though!) Thanks again for a great article.

    1. I am so pleased to hear that you found my article so useful. From everything you say, I would definitely recommend BigScoots if you can possibly stretch to it. And good luck with your move from Blogger to WordPress and all your plans for this year!

  2. I totally agree with you! I’ve used BogScoots for the past 8 years. I don’t have their fully managed plan- I pay for a year at a time of their smallest tier shared plan- but I can assure you that they DO still have the same fantastic customer service. They will fix almost anything, respond to tickets promptly (usually under 5 minutes), and yes, they do have staging for every WordPress installation if you set it up through cPanel/Softaculous. They make everything so easy. I recommend BigScoots to everyone. I have clients who use SiteGround, and that’s been good as well, but I haven’t found better customer service than BigScoots.
