jAutoUpdate – the newest free Joomla extension by SiteGround!

The newest component added to our free Joomla extensions addresses a problem we have identified while analyzing the Joomla-related technical requests we receive. It turned out that a lot of people ask SiteGround support team member for help after their application has been hacked as it was outdated. Most of the people experiencing such problems are actually well aware that it is important to keep their application up-to-date. However, the manual update isn’t easy enough for them and they do not perform it on a regular basis. So to provide an easy way for updating Joomla and thus prevent many security issues we have created jAutoUpdate. The component can be used to automatically update a Joomla application to the latest 1.5 version available with a single mouse click.

jAutoUpdate has three main functions that can be used through the Joomla administration area after the component is installed:

Once the version check icon is clicked jAutoUpdate checks for the latest available Joomla 1.5 version and compares it to the version currently used by the customer. If the application is outdated the Joomla Update option will appear.

This button will automatically apply an update patch from the currently used version to the latest Joomla 1.5 version available and will update fast and easily only the files that are different in the new version.

The forced update will replace all Joomla 1.5 system files with the ones from the latest stable package. This option is very useful for fixing more serious issues like Joomla system files missing or wrong modifications made to core Joomla files.

With the new component the Joomla update becomes extremely easy and we hope that fewer Joomla websites will be vulnerable to exploits due to outdated versions thanks to this component.

New FREE SEO Tools Section in cPanel

Update: Our partnership agreement with Attracta has come to an end. For other SEO resources please check out our Moz 60 Days Free offer (in your User Area Resources section) and SiteApps’ keyword rankings & other useful apps (in your cPanel Site Improvements Tools).

To help our clients improve website visibility in search engines and increase website traffic, we have recently teamed up with the leading SEO service provider Attracta. Most of you may have already noticed the SEO Tools section in your hosting account cPanel. There you will find all of the tools and services you need to get more of your site listed in Google and the other major search engines, with improved search ranking. And what is more – all tools are available for free!

How does it work:

The key to a successful website is being easily found on Google, Yahoo and all other major search engines. These search engines need to index your web pages and like the overall quality of your site, so that they can give it higher rankings and more visibility.

Attracta automatically generates a Sitemap of your website and pings the major search engines when any new pages are added, to ensure that everything on your website is indexed by the search engines – including pages that can’t be found during their normal crawling process. If your website is new, with our tools it will appear in Google search results in less than 24 hours! If your site is already in Google, you will get even more pages listed, and improve your page rank in days.

There are also tools to give you stats on common errors that can affect your search engine optimization efforts – such as broken links analysis, as well as the site’s current standing in line with the Google Guidelines for improved search traffic.

Using our new SEO tools is critical if your website:

1. Is new, has low page rank or few links to it;

2. Has frequent updates, or pages that aren’t easily discovered by search engines;

3. Has dynamic content, JavaScript, Flash, content in images or videos;

The regular price of the whole pack is $59.40 per year, but thanks to our recent partnership all SiteGround shared customers get to use the tools for free- the new section in cPanel is already available to everyone!

Getting started is easy:

Good luck!

Good Bye Old SiteBuilder, Hello New Website Wizard!

During the last few months SiteGround has gone through a serious reformation related to the SiteBuilder solution we provide to our customers. The changes were triggered by some copyright issues, which our primary SiteBuilder provider SiteMagix was unable to handle professionally. This situation forced us to take decisive actions and find an alternative solution, despite the high costs of changing such a vital part of our service. The end result of our efforts is a better site building tool for our customers and an entirely new Make Website package.
