Why BigScoots is Better

    • Say NO! To Shared Hosting

      SiteGround's GoGeek plan still hosts you in a shared environment. This means you are sharing and competing for your own resources with others. At BigScoots, our entry plan is built with isolated container technology which guarantees you the resources you are paying for.

      Your resources will not be shared with your neighbors. You will receive all of the same benefits no matter which plan you choose, just with more resources as you scale up. At BigScoots you can seamlessly scale with no downtime, while not having to worry about losing out to better treatment.

    • FREE Migration

      At BigScoots you are always entitled to at least one free migration with that number increasing substantially as you scale up. SiteGround does not include a free professional migration in their StartUp plan. At BigScoots we believe the initial migration, setup and optimization is so critical that we could never trust it to an automated plugin. Everyone’s website(s) comes in different shapes and sizes, and the hands on attention to detail is how we’re able to achieve the reliability, scalability and performance we’re known for.

      We treat our client's websites as if they were our own, and each migration is handled by real top industry experts always guaranteeing a seamless transition.

    • Stable Pricing

      SiteGround requires you to pay annually otherwise be required to pay a trial fee. Customers of SiteGround have also been known to report price changes after their initial term has ended.

      At BigScoots, our pricings are transparent and always as advertised. We do not upsell for anything, we will only ever offer real accurate recommendations for your own individual case, based on real industry expertise. Over the 9 years in the premium managed hosting space, BigScoots has never once increased our pricing on any of our plans, while at the same time have increased the size of our offers and offered free upgrades to current clients as a result!

    Say Goodbye To Overages

    All of our Fully Managed WordPress plans come with an estimated monthly visitor count far above our competitors, but we also never limit you in this way. Instead we welcome your growth with open arms, and effortlessly handle your traffic spikes and ever increasing page views without any interruption what so ever. We instead take averages among all of our clients and when plans far exceed those averages we open up a simple conversation to discuss your future growth. You never pay overages, you never run into resource ceilings, instead you can feel confident about focusing squarely on growing without a single concern towards your hosting service. When the time comes that a fair upgrade is necessary, you’ll have choices, never any overages and always a seamless upgrade available to you.

    • Real Expert
      WordPress Support

      Our team may be small compared to SiteGround, but we stay small by choice. We believe it allows for a much more agile and laser focused approach to better managing our client’s websites. By knowing every client by name, and they knowing us, our support relationship is elevated to a place the big guys just can’t touch.

      Our support team is built with professionally trained and formally educated WordPress experts that all have decades of experience. Knowing the ins and outs of WordPress, the most popular plugins, as well as having the skills necessary to quickly diagnose and remedy even the most complex issues is the key to real business changing management.

    • Seamlessly Scale
      As You Grow

      While SiteGround is great for what it is known for – “Powerful, yet simple” WordPress Hosting, it has an inherent problem with growth. With backend limitations in place ranging from CPU, memory, concurrent connections and database queries, it is very likely that as you exponentially scale you could be constricted.

      BigScoots Managed WordPress plans on the other hand are built very specifically with growth in mind. We welcome with open arms as much viral and growth traffic you can send our way no matter your package limits. We never suspend or charge overages, and you can be sure you’ll always have enough resources and a managed team behind you 24/7 to optimally serve every single visitor.

    Our Clients Love Us

    • ‎Emon Khan

      Justin is very good, when he touches things he fixes it, or does he? Maybe he looks at it and the problem fixes itself because it's afraid of him. Seriously, never ran into a tech guy this good! So far I am super impressed, ordered last night and was up and running by 1-2 AM in the morning! Can't believe I didn't do this last year...would have saved me endless nights of sleep.

    • Daniel Burge

      Remarkable service. I am always amazed just how fast things get sorted. I rate these guys as 100/100 as there is genuinely nothing I could see them doing to improve the service that I receive. They will do anything for me and never patronise my lack of tech skills. My websites are astonishingly fast too. BigScoots, thank you. You have me for life.

    • Beach Pea Design

      Being able to sleep at night knowing I can count on @BigScoots help when I mess up. Customer service is not dead! #smallbiz #partners #phew
