Technology Optimizations for Faster and More Secure Websites
In the past year, we took our hosting environment security and speed to yet another level. Some of the service enhancements and cutting-edge tools we launched are:
- In-house built CDN for blazing-fast website loading time with a one-click setup.
- Private DNS Service for enhanced online privacy and seamless white-label hosting management.
- New Block country traffic tool to limit unwanted or malicious traffic and streamline your business.
- Boosted AI brute-force blocking system with a traffic validation functionality, which cuts down the number of brute-force attacks by 95%.
Improved WordPress Tools For All
Our custom plugins for unmatched WordPress speed and security – SiteGround Optimizer and SiteGround Security – have together been installed nearly 3 Million times already. This year marked another big step on this journey, after we released both plugins for free use by everyone, regardless of the hosting platform you are using. In less than a year, SiteGround Optimizer has had more than 1,000,000 active installations on top of the 2+ Million SiteGround users and is ranked among the top 3 performance optimization plugins. The SiteGround Security plugin is close to 1 Million new installations and is ranked as one of top WordPress security plugins by the community.
In 2022, we also increased the WordPress memory limit for all of SiteGround clients in response to a growing demand in the community for raising the default WP memory value and to accommodate the ever-growing development of WordPress sites. The new limit of 256 MB on our servers means our WordPress clients have more room to expand their WordPress sites right out of the box.
Expanded Data Center and CDN Network
Our clients can now host their websites as close as possible to where their visitors are to ensure faster page loading time and better user experience.
98% Client Satisfaction Rate
Being customer-driven has always been a cornerstone for us. Our clients’ feedback is the driving force behind everything we do at SiteGround. For this reason, each year we ask our customers to rate our efforts and services throughout the year.
This year our client satisfaction rate remained a steady 98% on our annual end-of-year survey. And to share our gratitude for our customers’ input, we’ll plant a tree through TreeNation for each person who completed the survey.
