FastComet and SiteGround, both hosting services are great and have their own pros and cons. They provide excellent value for money. But the main difference between these two hosting services is that FastComet is much cheaper when compared to Siteground and FastComet is also very feature-packed.
SiteGround is also very good but it comes with a few limitations with their basic plans. Fastcomet is an all-one hosting solution that also costs less and also provides many great features. Personally, I would go with Fastcomet because it provides better value for money.
