Web hosting company SiteGround has started two initiatives that will allow its customers to enjoy the benefits of the latest versions of some very important software. This week SiteGround has introduced the newest cPanel theme. The company has also made serious preparations to accommodate the upcoming new version its customers’ most preferred open source application – Joomla 1.5.
“We introduced the new x3 theme of cPanel 11 on Tuesday, and we were amazed by the amount of positive feedback received in 24 hours” says Tenko Nikolov, Chief Technical Manager at SiteGround. The new theme really makes the hosting account management more intuitive than ever, but its use was further facilitated by a major tutorial update made by SiteGround. The CPanel, FTP, Email, and PHP/MySQL tutorials are now with brand new screenshots, new articles, and updated navigation. The tutorials follow the new structure of the new CPanel and explain how to use tools like File and FTP managers, Webmail, phpMyAdmin, Fantastico, etc.
Another application that is extremely popular among SiteGround users, Joomla CMS, is now on the verge of a new major release. “Although Joomla 1.5 is still at a release candidate stage, we see a great interest among our customers and its use is already becoming substantial” says Kate Mihaleva, SiteGround Open Source Projects Coordinator. The steps made by the company to welcome the new Joomla include: a brand new tutorial for Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.5 free installation, Joomla 1.5 optimized servers, and a free Joomla 1.5 template, which has attracted serious attention on the official Joomla contest for a default 1.5 template.
