Free Google AdWords Vouchers for SiteGround Clients now available!

[Update: Offer is no longer valid] Barely into the start of the new year, we already have a new extra to tell you about! The Google AdWords online advertising program has been around for quite some time and has already proved to be one of the most successful and efficient ways to promote your website online. We have been trying for some time now to reach an agreement with Google to start promoting their program to SiteGround clients by giving vouchers for free advertising, because we really do believe that people who get the opportunity to try it out, will see for themselves how efficient it is. Google, however, have a very strict policy on the country availability for the program and it took us some time to finally get a chance to provide our customers with this service. Read More…

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.

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:
