Free Joomla Extensions Developed by SiteGround

We are happy to announce to our Joomla customers that we have another exciting addition to our Joomla hosting package – a collection of in-house developed Joomla Extensions. Studying the requests from thousands of Joomla users hosted on our servers we came to the conclusion that there is a great demand for quality extensions able to improve the basic Joomla functionality.

Our team has researched the most desired additions to Joomla and then developed the following Joomla extensions based on the needs of our Joomla customers. Below we will present shortly our Joomla extensions. For download and full info you can refer to our Joomla Extensions page.

jHackGuard
Like all open source applications Joomla applications are subjected of constant hacking attacks. Our security specialists have created a security plugin that will prevent the majority of those attacks. It will guard your script from SQL Injections, Remote URL/File Inclusions, Remote Code Executions and XSS Based attacks.

jPageTranslator
With the progress of the Google Translate project, making an international website has become easier than ever! Add this extension to your Joomla website and your visitors will be able to browse it on all the languages supported by the Google Translate script.

jAddAnalyticsjAddAnalytics
Nowadays evaluating your website performance with Google Analytics has become a necessity for each web master that wants to be successful. Just paste the ID from your Analytics account into the appropriate field and the script will be automatically added to all of your pages.

jShareEasy
jShareEasy is a Joomla 1.5 module that allows your visitors to share your articles on Social Networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Delicious and Google bookmarks. With this module your visitors will be able to share your content with a single click and thus increase the popularity of your site.

jGeoIPFilter
We have created a module that allows you to perform different actions on your website depending on the geographic location of your visitors. For example, this module allows you to redirect all visitors from the UK to the English version of your website and all visitors from Germany – to the German version of your pages.

jNoRightClick
SiteGround has created the jNoRightClick extension to prevent your visitors from using the right mouse button on your Joomla website, which is an effective way to protect your texts and photos from being copied without authorization.

SiteGround Goes Green

A lot has been said about global warming and “going green”. Our team has always been enthusiastic about reducing pollution, saving energy and water, but we always felt that’s not enough. So, we decided to try a more effective, down-to-earth, hands-on approach to doing something good for our planet. This weekend the SiteGround team planted over 400 trees and cleaned the surrounding area.

There were more than 50 of us – SiteGround employees, friends, kids and a dog. Our task was to plant willows along a riverbank. Willows help both the local eco balance and prevents collapsing of the riverbank. We also cleaned up the waste from the area. It was exhausting, it was cold and muddy, and it was great fun!

We trooped up in front of the entrance of a big cave and the local ranger briefed us how to use a shovel to dig a hole, how to plant a sapling, how to mold and water it. Then, we separated into groups and went to the spots where the actual work and fun began.

Some were lucky to be planting on nice and easy-to-dig earth and planted their saplings in no time. Others got spots where the riverbank was stony and the soil was very hard. One of the groups had to cross the river bare-footed to reach their sites.

The guys dug enthusiastically their first few holes, but then the passion started to fade and it was time to take the beer out of the trunks to keep us going! The girls did the planting and watered the newly-planted trees with water from the river. After lunch we regrouped and those who were done with their spots went to help those who picked up the short stick with the stony soil.

It was a hard day’s work that ended sooner than expected due to the pouring rain. Yet, we were quite proud with the result. We got home wet, exhausted, yet happy. And we immediately started planning when to do it again!

For us, that was just one small step for helping our planet. We are going to keep up with the green initiatives and think of ways of involving our customers and friends as well!
