More Local Currencies & Perks
Less than a month since launching multiple currencies and local phone lines in Europe, we continue to make our services more accessible for international clients. It's time for some awesome news for our customers from Australia. Starting this month we now accept payments in Australian Dollars (AUD), we have an Australian toll-free phone and also offer a free .com.au domain with new accounts. All these new improvements help clients avoid exchange rate fluctuations, reach our Customer Service more easily and without overseas charges and get a special country domain name. More local currencies, phone lines and country-specific services coming soon, so stay tuned!
 
Webinar Video & Slides
Our webinar with top WordPress authors Brad Williams and Brian Messenlehner from WebDevStudios was held a few days ago. We dug deeper into the nitty-gritty of WordPress security and had a great discussion afterwards! If you missed it or would like to watch it again, the webinar slides and video are already online.

Getting Aboard
Traditionally, we had our annual retreat held in September. Just in time to help the roughly 20 new SiteGrounders who joined the team during the Summer switch from weeks of intensive training to getting to know the company spirit. Read what one of our new team members made out of the whole experience on our blog.
