Hardware Upgrades 2012

SiteGround New Gear

If you are a SiteGround client and you have been one for more than a couple of years, you probably have noticed that we tend to change our hardware quite often. This has been mine and SiteGrounds’ philosophy for quite some time now.

Most hosts will brag about high-tech brand new hardware configurations on their websites but what remains hidden is that they use this hardware only for the new servers they set up. Usually, they won’t replace a working machine for any reason. In fact they will keep it (even if 5 years old) until it’s dead broken and they are forced to restore all affected websites from a backup. This means that even if you get a good hardware initially, as time goes by you will be stuck with it and you will get slower and crappier service until your old server crashes and you are “lucky” to be moved to the new hardware.

SiteGround new Affiliate Program – did we sell our souls?

The standard web hosting affiliate market was a place we had been reluctant to go to. It somehow seemed wrong to us to pay more than a whole year of income for a sale generated by someone, who chooses which hosting services to recommend not based on personal experience but only based on the commission rates offered. And now here we are: launching a new affiliate program that is extremely competitive with commission rates among the highest and withhold periods among the shortest in the industry (see affiliate program comparisson PDF).

Our/Your New User Area

So it’s live! After a few weeks of testing it, we can now shout it out loud: we launched our new User Area. A six-month project that involved the deletion of thousands of lines of old code, a totally new file structure on the backend, and lots of work on a fancier front-end. To check out the new look of each section with explanations just click on the image below:

We are already in Singapore!

Asia & Australia“Hey Lily, we’ve moved to Singapore!” I got this message few days ago on FaceBook from one of my college mates, who had just left Washington DC for a fresh start in Asia. Knowing what we were working on the last few weeks, I was tempted to answer: “We are already there too!”. I just imagined how she would read my reply several times, trying to figure out what was going on, knowing me as a person, who had never considered a relocation. The truth is that I haven’t packed for a new home, as I really love mine. However, SiteGround has added a new data center location and we now have servers in Singapore too!

Hello Europe! Our first server location outside the US is now a fact.

We are happy to announce the launch of our first server location outside the USA. We would soon be welcoming our first accounts in Europe and this is the beginning of a bigger geographical expansion that will address the needs of our customers outside the USA.

We aim to address better the needs of the thousands of international customers we host.

Although till now we have operated only servers based in the USA, our hosting services have always been used by many people outside the States. Part of these people choose our service because they operate websites that target mainly US customers, so having such a site hosted on a US server made perfect sense, as it would be faster and easily available for its visitors.
