Year in Review

Last year was an important milestone for us. It marked our 15th anniversary as a company. Ever since we started our journey in the hosting industry, we have always had one goal: to make our clients, team, and community HAPPY. Read below to see how we did it in 2019!

This Year Was Extra Special: We Turned 15

We did so much in 15 years! SiteGround started as an idea of four university friends, and today, we are a BIG multinational family. Check out the videos below where some of our team members share what it means to be part of SiteGround.

We’re Now 530+ SiteGrounders

The SiteGround family grew even more this year! We are now 530+ SiteGrounders, distributed in four offices, or working remotely!

We Built Ourselves a Home

In 2019, we opened the doors of our new SiteGround Headquarters building, entirely designed and owned by us. It was built in accordance with all standards of the international Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificate.

We Built a Brand New Client Area and Site Tools for our Clients

One of the most notable events of the year was the complete redesign of our client interfaces.

Much Easier Website Launch

Add a domain, install your site building software of choice, add useful extras, and launch a site in a few clicks!

More Convenient Site Management

You can now manage all your websites from one place and quickly access their individual set of Site Tools without having several login credentials.

Special Collaboration Tools

If you’re working as a team, you can easily add collaborators to the sites you manage. Every person you add gets their own login and a separate account.

We Kept Enhancing Our Hosting Platform and Services

We Moved from Static Cache to NGINX Direct Delivery

To enhance even more the loading speed of the websites hosted on our servers, we replaced the Static Cache with a new NGINX Direct Delivery method for serving static content. It works much more efficiently and provides better performance for your site visitors.

We Added QUIC Speed Technology for All Clients

We were one of the first web hosts to support QUIC technology, the base for the next-gen Internet protocol HTTP/3. The greatest advantage of QUIC is that it makes sites load faster, even when your visitors’ network connection is slow.

We boosted our SG Optimizer Plugin

In 2019, we enhanced our SG Optimizer plugin, which now speeds up over 700,000 WordPress sites hosted on our platform. It now offers a complete set of front-end optimizations, improved caching, HTTPS configuration, PHP compatibility checks, and more!

You Get Even Faster and More Efficient Customer Support

Passing the 2-million domains mark on our servers in 2019 meant we needed to ensure all of them will continue to get the stellar customer service we’re known for. So we got even more efficient.
