UPDATED: Join our “Stop Censorship” Campaign – Let’s Oppose SOPA and PIPA together

UPDATE: Following the massive blackout last Wednesday at least 18 senators withdrew their support for PIPA and SOPA. The big news though came on Friday Jan 20, 2012 when the scheduled PIPA voting has been postponed: Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) pulled his planned cloture vote on the bill, agreeing to go back to the drawing table. This shows HUGE positive progress on both PIPA & SOPA and we’d like to say big thank you to everyone who joined the campaign.

However, the fight isn’t over yet. These bills are NOT dead, they are just not coming up for a vote right now, which is why we still encourage all our supporters and believers in the open Internet to keep opposing the bills and fight for our rights of free speech and privacy. Stay tuned for updates!

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its sister bill Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) have become a very hot topic for all Internet businesses and users. We have already firmly stated SiteGround position against SOPA back in November and have been actively using our social media channels to raise awareness about the issue. In short: we are against those bills, because we believe they have the potential to take away the most important things we love Internet for – the freedom of speech and the possibilities to express oneself creatively. For more detailed explanation why many people support such a position we recommend the video below:

Meet our very special customers – a new blog series

I work for SiteGround since the company was founded and I still remember well these hard and romantic times in the beginning, when each of us knew the name and the website of almost all our customers. Now, seven years and thousands of customers later, as a head of the Marketing Department I seldom have the chance to get to know in such details anyone using our services. However, at the end of the last year I got a new opportunity to learn more about some of our most outstanding clients. We had an initiative to find the most loyal customers and to surprise them with custom made t-shirts and with a blog post with an interview with each of them.  So this is the start of a series that will present:

Customers who have built many websites and host them all with us

There were many people in this category and the person we will be happy to start with, is Michel Smekens, the SEO of a web design bureau in Belgium: webnology.be, who has chosen to host their customers with us. He will tell us more about his work and his reasons to be with SiteGround in his featured interview. Read More…

Secret Santa Fun in SiteGround Sales Department

It was a beautiful Monday morning, 26th of December, when we gathered around the office Christmas tree. Under it there were gifts for each of us, all wrapped and pretty, all with carefully written name tags on them. But let us start from the beginning, so that we can better explain the scene described above.

Why Softaculous became more than Fantastic(o) to us…

Fantastico has been on our servers for a long time now, and it is quite possible that you know and like the smiley face in your cPanel, and have used it to install or update a software on your hosting account. However, we have started to get the impression that the guys behind the auto-installer have become a little spoiled by the fact that many people use Fantastico just because it is integrated in the cPanel and are sometimes a little negligent about the quality of their service. Just a few examples from our experience to back up this statement:
