To be a part of the big SiteGround family is not only a constant challenge but also a great privilege. The energy and enthusiasm that we put in our every-day work is being ceaselessly revived by the numerous events and vacations that we take part in. Several months ago we were surprised with another such news - an upcoming ski vacation that will allow SiteGround winter sport lovers to spend some time together in the mountains.
SpamExperts, a leading provider of email security solutions for web hosts, recently announced its partnership with SiteGround, an experienced shared hosting provider with more than a thousand USA located servers under its management. SiteGround now applies both the inbound and outbound SpamExperts filters to the email activity of all its shared hosting customers.
Just as we promised, we continue our initiative for sponsoring and giving away free tickets for Open Source community organized events. This initiative started last December when we had few free WordCamp tickets to give away and thought "why not give them to our customers, now that we can't personally attend". Initially, this wasn't meant to become an ongoing project, but we did receive some great feedback from the people who attended the past events and no longer doubted if we should continue this. We learned that these events are a great opportunity for everyone, no matter how advanced user he/she is, to learn, network and gather new ideas and knowledge for the development of their own websites. And if there's one thing we strongly believe in, it is that we should help our customers along every step of the way: from a quick sign up process, through an easy and straightforward web site build up, to future growth and development of their online presence. And what better opportunity to get new knowledge, inspiration and ideas than attending such events? On top of it - for free! Read More

Do you know that feeling when you’re not in front of your computer, but you need to find something online quickly – you thank God for your smart phone. It has everything you need in the palm of your hand. You start browsing on your phone, looking up what you need online. And then the frustration kicks in - even if it is a website that you use every day on your computer, if it is not optimized for mobile devices, opening it up on a smart phone and finding what you need can take ages. Up to the point when you give up – and simply try googling a new site that will give you what you want faster, on time and in a way that you can easily read and interact with on your mobile phone.

When I say SPAM, you will most probably think of the annoying unwanted emails INCOMING to your own Inbox, and this is definitely one of the SPAM aspects we have been fighting for a long time and which I am proud we have already minimized very successfully. However, in this post I would like to address another aspect – the OUTGOING SPAM: how it affects you and what is the newest solution we have applied to it.
Since I started dealing with hosting (and probably many years before that), outgoing SPAM has been one of the most troublesome aspects for a hosting company. It might sound strange to you, but the spammers are causing hosting companies (and you, our customers) a lot of troubles, headaches and even migraines. How? I will explain in details below. Read More
