Dear Customer,

Welcome to the first issue of our monthly newsletters! As we promised you in the annual recap for last year, in the new 2012 we will continue to take active steps in engaging you - our customers - into the process of shaping up and constantly upgrading our services. This is why we are starting a new initiative to keep you up to date with anything you might have missed on a monthly basis. We believe this is a great way to stay in contact and keep you on track with the latest and greatest from the SiteGround headquarters!

"Stop Censorship" Anti-SOPA Campaign launched

We joined the steady internet campaign against Internet censorship, along with websites such as Wikipedia, Google, eBay, Mozilla, Boing-boing and many many more. We issued an official statement on the approaching voting of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) bills. Since we believe that freedom of speech and expression must be actively supported

and fought for, we also launched our very own campaign against Internet censorship, represented by the bills in their current format. Consequently, thanks to the joint efforts of Internet users all over the world, most senators withdrew their support for PIPA and SOPA and the scheduled PIPA voting was postponed. You can read more about the issue in this blog post:
