At 57 ms, it’s the fastest host in the Malaysian region (especially if you choose to locate the server in Singapore.)
Better yet, you won’t sacrifice speed across the rest of the world. Siteground gets an A rating across the rest of the world. In other words, it’s super fast in Malaysia, and it’s fast everywhere else too!
You can accelerate the worldwide speed even further by enabling the SiteGround’s free CDN function. Powered by Cloudflare, this stores your website locally on servers around the world. So no matter where your audience is, they always get served from the fastest location.
SiteGround is also affordable. At RM213 , it’s (almost) the cheapest host on the list. And it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.
Not only that, but SiteGround is a global web host that powers more than 500,000 of websites. You’re in good hands. You get daily backups too so you won’t lose all your hard work. FYI, we host this website Bitcatcha.com on SiteGround’s server!
