Hi guys,


My term is coming to an end with Siteground Hosting. As many are aware, after the initial signup period, their price changes from $5.95p/m to $19.95p/m and I don't wish to support such a company who constantly offers low prices to new customers but screws over renewing customers.


I have one main ecommerce site (that I wish to move in tact) - and then a couple more random domains that I use for testing new site designs/layouts (I can just delete these and import using a backup if need be). The shop currently only caters to NZ, but may expand to AUS customers also in the future.


Any suggestions on who to move to?


I am a noob, and normally work on things through my cpanel. I've seen SiteHost recommended multiple times but not sure if that's overkill for what I'm needing. Hoopla I've seen was recommended a long time ago but not sure if they are still recommended now.

Thanks for the @ @michaelmurfy


Yep, we do at least a couple of Wordpress moves (to our own servers) a week. 

Ask me about Web Servers, Wordpress and the internet in general.
