Serious Joomla Vulnerability found but we’ve got you Covered!

security

It is mid-summer now but security issues take no vacation. Actually they find the most inappropriate time to appear and make our lives more interesting, to say the least. On Thursday, 25 July the Joomla! Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.1.4/2.5.13 and many users upgraded their websites because the new releases provide tons of useful new features and bug fixes. One will think: job well done, it is time to hit the beach! But… On Thursday, 01 August, the Joomla! Project surprisingly  announced the immediate availability of Joomla! 3.1.5/2.5.14. Apparently not much time to sip exotic summer cocktails was allowed. The reason for this extremely short period between the two versions was that a critical level security issue was discovered just after the previous release and it had the potential to affect all Joomla! CMS versions. Yes, that’s correct  – we are talking about all the Joomla! sites out there. All versions are affected – 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3. Sounds scary, right? Not if you’re hosted on SiteGround servers!

WordPress 3.6 “Oscar” is Live and Kicking!

It’s Jazz Friday again. Happy new WordPress release everybody! WordPress 3.6 is live and the list of improvements, new features and bug fixes seems to be endless. Since you may have already looked over the official post at WordPress.org I’ll try to highlight only the most important changes and skip those 700+ fixes and minor UI changes. SiteGround uses WordPress to power up this blog and our knowledge base, and I have already updated both instances without any issues along the way.

Why WordCamp San Francisco rocked my socks!

wcsf2013

We just got back from a long and utterly exciting journey to San Francisco for the biggest WordCamp of the year – WordCamp San Francisco. We proudly sponsored the conference for a second consecutive year and to say that we had a blast will be an understatement! There were more than 600 people attending, and I had the feeling we spoke to almost all of them, amazing line-up of speakers and sessions, including Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word, and the Contribute day that made this event especially valuable for me personally.

SiteGround + Moz

Lets face it, lots of website owners still shiver at the word „SEO“ – either because it’s perceived as time-consuming and tricky business, but also because everyone has an opinion on it and you never know what the latest trend is. We’ve all been there, and if there is one company who’s working actively towards turning this perception around, that is Moz (formerly SEOMoz).

Good online marketing is building influence through all critical channels: social, content, links, and mentions. Easier said than done when all of your marketing efforts are scattered around and it’s hard to get the full picture. To show you that it can be done easily, effectively and on a budget, we partnered with Moz to offer an exclusive 60 Days of their Moz PRO service for FREE to SiteGround clients only!

The new SiteGround.com is now super fast!

superfast

A lot has been said about our new website design: how it looks, what values it communicates and how it changes our hosting plans structure. However, I would like to turn your attention to another aspect of our new website – its amazing loading speed. During the last year I have worked consistently on implementing a lot of speed-related innovations to our hosting service (multiple server locations, CloudFlare CDN, the SuperCacher). I have also talked about speed optimizations on many events, but mainly in the context of our customers’ websites. Now it is the time that I shed some light on the magic behind our own website´s amazing loading speed.
