SiteGround Hosting missing Drush

Just a note to other Drupalers.  I have been looking for a new Drupal-centric host and have heard good things about SiteGround.  They advertise support for Drush, which would make critical core updates, like the one we had last week, much quicker and easier.

HOWEVER, please note that their latest version of Drush is 8.0 dev., which is horribly out of date and WILL NOT WORK with Drupal 8.4 and above.

I made this unfortunate discovery after setting up a new account there.  The staff could not give me an estimate of when they planned to update Drush, so I promptly cancelled.

Just wanted to pass this information on to anyone else considering a host that supports Drush.

PS: Can anyone here recommend a good Drupal-Centric host that supports Drush?  Thanks.
