A Quick Overview of this Awesome Post
Let us first see what siteblog claims all about it before exploring the realities and its trustworthiness.
What is a siteblog?
Siteblog is a website building company.You can access its home page at siteblog.com.
Siteblog claims itself to be a free drag and drop website(or blog) builder and editor with free custom domain name, email and thousands of free website templates.
That said, siteblog claims that you can create a free blog with it.
Watch this siteblog official video to know more about it but don’t believe what it says:
What can you get if you sign up with siteblog:
If you happen to successfully sign up with siteblog (I could not because it does not work), you will get a blog with the URL: yourblogname.freeblog.site hosted with siteblog.com
How ugly and spammy this URL looks!
None loves to remember and visit such a blog with this URL.
Also, your blog is further uglied with siteblog advertisements for a free account.
If you dared to take this blog name, you will get a free drag and drop site builder but with limited features. You will be attached with so many upsells in the long run.
You will never feel it is free.
The premium blog plans are ridiculously high and are never worth the price.

So, I wanted to save your valuable time and money if you are one of them by exploring this company transparently.
As you are reading this article, you may be one those searchers.You will regret if you happen to create a blog with siteblog.
Wheresoever you have come across the name siteblog, now is the time to learn real facts about it.
My experience with siteblog:
After seeing this much search interest, I said to myself “let me have a try with this company for a free blog so that I can suggest it to my readers if it works fine”.
I visited the home page siteblog.com and looked for a signup link.I could never find a signup link even after scanning all through the website.
How unprofessional this website is designed?
I went back to Google and quered for siteblog sign up.Ultimately, I landed on the sign up page.
After entering name,email and password, the sign up button never worked and it took me to the homepage again.
I did not give up on the first attempt and tried a couple of times to sign up.
A complete waste of a few minutes.Then what could have been the fate of the users that already created blog with this company?
At least, I can stop new users to sign up for this company and save their time and money.

Review#3:rating 1 out of 5 on https://www.trustpilot.com/review/siteblog.com.
The review said 3rd Feb 2017, “This is the worst web hosting company from hell. Extremely expensive, very misleading and worst of all they make it very difficult for you to move away from them by charging your a transfer fee which they never tell you about in their terms and conditions”
I think these reviews are enough to keep you stay away from siteblog.
If you are thinking about creating a blog with siteblog, think no more and choose other best options like Blogger or WordPress.
By your bad luck, if you have already created a blog with siteblog, feel like you are in a sinking ship and rush out quickly.
How to cancel siteblog account:
Once you have fallen prey to siteblog, they will not let you cancel your account easily.
As the reviewed user said they make it very difficult to move away from them. Also, they charge an additional transfer fee too.
Contact siteblog customer care and ask for your account cancellation after successful migration.
Try connecting to Siteblog customer phone numbers:
UK:03333 706 555
Or email them by filling the contact from at http://help.siteblog.com/?popModal=true
Talk to them to cancel your account, pay them the transfer fee and move away.
Final thoughts on siteblog:
It is unfortunate that such an unprofessional web hosting company exists.
You may have come across it by clicking on any advertisement or on any of its affiliate’s website.
If you are looking for reviews about siteblog, look no more than this page and save your time.
Stay away from siteblog and choose other trustworthy companies like WordPress to create your blog.
