As a web hosting company we move around tons of websites all the time. The most challenging migrations happen when physical datacenter locations are changed. On such occasions we transfer upwards of 300TB of data. It usually travels over the wire, but we have also physically moved server machines and literally transported websites by the truckload!
Remember when we announced our new infrastructure in October last year? Part of the innovation, which we were particularly proud of, was our in-house created backup/restore system. A few days ago this system was put to its first critical real-life test and the results were impressive. We were able to restore 3 times more data, 7 times faster, compared to the previous such event when we were still using the old backup solution. Here is how we did it.
This was the 12th SiteGround’s birthday party and it was definitely different from any of the previous 11 SiteGround anniversaries I have been to. For me, this vintage party came after a very hard personal year, in which I grew older more than in any other year in my life before. For SiteGround it came after a tremendously successful year, in which the company grew bigger more than in any other year before.
We just launched an enhanced look of our website SiteGround.com. We have been working on it for a while and its launch date has been heavily influenced by Google’s announcement that mobile friendliness of a website is officially becoming an important factor for search engine placement as of tomorrow. And yes, you have guessed it right - the new site is fully responsive. However, what is even more important is that the new site is fully representative of who we are and how we do things around here.
The second webinar of our Affiliate Series aims to help people who recommend SiteGround be well prepared for the question: what makes SiteGround different from all the rest? We have done detailed real-life tests with 12 hosting companies we consider close competitors and in the webinar we will show some real numbers about:
- How much faster exactly a website is on SiteGround servers
- How our reaction to security issues is the most efficient out there
- How much faster we resolve our customer support requests
You will also learn how do we achieve such great results and how to use this information to convince easier your referees that SiteGround is the best choice.
