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.

Joomla 3.0 Released!

Joomla 3.0 Released!
Joomla 3.0 is finally out! As usual, I’m testing it on our servers making sure that it works flawlessly for all SiteGround folks that use this great piece of open source software.

I started installing Joomla 3.0 and writing this post simultaneously. I’ve just written an intro paragraph on how easy and painless the installation process is, when a nasty Internal Server Error screen appeared – right after I unpacked the official installation package. That kind of reminded me how right was the saying that one should never assume

Team Building 2012 – another peak we’ve conquered together!

2,925 m /9,596 ft high

Having slept over the SiteGround team building that was held this weekend, I suddenly realized how symbolic the event was. It all started, when few of the key SiteGrounders decided that we should aim for the top of the highest mountain peak around (2,925m / 9,596ft high). At the hiking day the weather was far from friendly with strong chilly wind and occasional gusts of rain. At first many people were skeptical about reaching the top, as the track itself was not an easy one. However, at each obstacle there were two forces that helped us move further up: first, the contagious enthusiasm of the people ahead of you and second, the reassuring support from the people next to you.
