If you've listened to the first episode of the Joomla Beat Podcast you'd know that I've gone through quite a few hosting companies in my time and have experience a complete hosting environment failure where I've lost just about everything on my shared environment and had to build it up again from scratch.
So when I do find a good hosting company I stick with it.
Working with many different clients from around the world I get exposed to all sorts of hosting environments from cramped shared hosting servers all the way to scalable dedicated solutions.
Recently, however, I was approached by SiteGround about having the Joomla Beat Podcast hosted on their servers. I was a little hesitant at first but since they gave me a free trial I though I could at least give them a try. I have heard quite a lot of good things about SiteGround in the Joomla cummunity and they have been sponsoring many Joomla events around the world.
So when Tina from SiteGround set me up with an account, a simple shared environment account I might add, I though why not, but I'm going to put them to the test before I would start recommending them myself.
