Sharing Halloween fun on Facebook!

Halloween Contest

As Halloween is getting near we went through the pictures from the last year SiteGround wild costume party and we remembered the great fun we had! Someone from the support team joked how great it would be if this year we can invite one of the funniest customers Mr. Jones, whose tickets have always been written with a great sense of humor, and see what costume he will choose. At first we laughed but after a while it stroke me that there is a place, where we can really invite all our friends and see how original they get. This place is our Facebook page, where we organized a Halloween Photo contest.

The EV SSL: a green light to happiness

SiteGround with the highest level of SSL assuranceRecently tried visiting  SiteGround web hosting by https? Then you can’t have missed the latest addition to our homepage – the soothingly green address bar in the browser. The reassuring color pops up thanks to the highest assurance SSL technology we have recently added to our website – the EV (Extended Validation) SSL certificate.

How does the EV SSL work?

As each other SSL certificate the EV SSL guards by encryption the information on its way between the browser and its final destination – the server. What is more – the EV SSL is the only certificate ensuring that the final destination itself is secure too.  We trust the green bar not only because of its reassuring color, but also because it contains company information verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). In seconds, it indicates that a domain is owned and a website is operated by a legitimate organization. It gets even more reassuring – this has been checked personally by an authorized professional as opposed to the automatic checks done when a standard SSL is issued.

How EV SSL brings happiness to everyone?

1.    Our customers are happier
Now our customers feel safer when submitting sensitive information on our website. After all, an authorized professional has checked us thoroughly before letting us turn on the green light on our website.
2.    Our sales people are happier
The more comfortable people feel about submitting their information on our website, the better the results of our sales people.
3.    Our website designers are happier
No more wondering where to place the annoying SSL site seal banner, which never matches the website design and always looks awkward.
4.    Our marketing people are happier
We now have a new tested technology to offer to our customers! EV SSL certificates are now available on our SSL page. Which helps us add to our number one goal:  Keeping customers happy!

Having added one more options to our SSL offers portfolio has made it easier for you to find the best solution to your needs. In addition, you now know how to give green light to your website visitors and turn them into customers. So, make sure to check out our SSL offers and choose the one that suits you best.

What’s new in the web hosting industry: SiteGround HostingCon’09 recap

HostingCon09 venueAs we already told you, SiteGround headed to HostingCon’09 in the middle of August.  We had so many new things on our mind afterwards, so many talks to get back to and such good time, that we needed a good few weeks time to arrange it all. So, now that our impressions are all piled up, we’d love to share some of the highlights with you.

Some of you asked us to follow up on the tendencies in the web hosting industry. We hear you :) Although we are a bit late delivering the news, the topics are still as hot as they were in August. The buzz words on this year’s event were hosting business acquisitions, products and services up-selling, affiliate programs, and of course – cloud computing and virtualization. Read More…

Web Apps End of Summer Recap

Einstein "Do Your Homework" As the end of the Summer approaches, some have taken longer vacations while others are working even harder. This is especially true for the developers of web applications.  In this post we’ll take a sneak peak at what’s cooking behind the scenes of some of the most popular applications.

Joomla!

This summer Joomla! mostly patched security and bugs issues in the current 1.5 version. Support for the old 1.0 Joomla! has finally been officially discontinued.

Work on its next long-awaited version 1.6 seems to be quite busy. We hear the new features are extensive and promising. Google’s Summer of code has also contributed greatly to it, so our expectations are growing even greater.
