SiteGround Labor Day Promotion

If you visit SiteGround website the next few days you may start wondering if we are changing business from selling web hosting to selling casual attire. Well, we are definitely not doing this:), what you see is actually our Labor Day Promotion:

Labor Day Promotion

As you probably know we have the habit of offering promotions for most of the major Holidays. That is why you can often see our website being overtaken by colorful eggs, carved pumpkins, cartoon turkeys and Santa Clauses, offering lower prices and free extra services. However, when it comes to Labor Day, things are a little bit more difficult. The lack of widely recognized “labor day” symbols made us search for some more unexpected images for our promotion. The inspiration came from the fact that around Labor Day most of us are taking our last summer vacations, and are getting ready for the serious work season coming forward.

SiteGround Security Ins and Outs

SiteGround SecurityI’ve always wanted to express how I feel about security in the shared web space, where dozens of users divide the same resources and at the same time require dramatically different technologies to be enabled on a single host server (such as different PHP engines with different options enabled, Perl, Python, an FTP service, an email service, a Database service, etc;). In case you’re an admin, you’ll know how difficult it is to provide all of that on a shared hosting server while allowing access to practically everybody on the Internet and at the same time maintaining a very good level of security. Believe me, it’s a tough job. I know it as I’ve been dealing with that for more than 8 years in a row now, on a daily basis.

A new Malware Protection Service Now Available

We’re excited to announce our new service – Hackalert.  Hackalert is the latest malware detection and early warning system available out there, powered by our partner GlobalSign-one of the longest established Certification Authorities and specialists in SSL security.

Malware is developed and improved every day to compromise PCs and spread viruses, hijack computers or steal personal information.  One of the biggest fears of website owners is for their site to be infected with hidden malicious code and then used as a vehicle to distribute it to the website visitors.  Unless remedied quickly, an infected website will shortly be flagged or blacklisted by search engines like Google for hosting malicious content. When visiting a flagged website, its visitors and potential customers will see worrying warnings about the site potentially harming their computers.  In both cases, you can expect a steady drop in your website traffic, at the least.

Joomla 1.7 stable is out…and we are ready for it!

The new major Joomla version 1.7 is already released and we are happy to announce that just a few days later all our Joomla services have been tested and confirmed to work flawlessly with the new version:

  1. SiteGround Joomla hosting is ready for v1.7 and updated joomlas run flawlessly on our servers
  2. The Joomla templates designed by SiteGround are fully compatible with Joomla 1.7
  3. The Joomla extensions developed by SiteGround are fully compatible with Joomla 1.7

Joomla 1.7 review

The first stable version of the Joomla 1.7 branch was released on July 19th. This came only 6 months after Joomla 1.6 was released. The short period was really amazing, having in mind that the previous two transitions to the next major version took the Joomla team 3 years each. However, the promise on the official Joomla website is that from now on we should expect a new major version on each 6 months! We are excited about this news, especially because we saw some real steps in making the transition to the new versions much easier than they previously were.
