Few months ago our data center partner SingleHop has successfully completed their newest and most advanced facility in Chicago. With all the innovations introduced on the spot, we were excited by the great opportunity it gives us to further improve our hosting service.

Kristina, or simply Krisi as most of us call her, is one of the most experienced members of the SiteGround sales team. In 2007 she was among the first employees in our just-established second office. Right from the start, her great dedication to her work and her outstanding talent to communicate efficiently, even with the most demanding customers, stood out. Now she is the inspiring team leader of the people, who take care of all pre-sale enquiries on our live chat.
At SiteGround Valentin is the man who follows all possible security bulletins on the net. He is involved in almost any of the server level fixes we apply when a vulnerability in an application like Joomla, WordPress, or any of the hundreds others used on our servers appear. And if you expect a man like that to have a heart of steel and care only about technology, you would be surprised. Do not miss the very personal and touching story about Valentin's SiteGround!
Val is one of the most experienced people in our support team. Currently, you will seldom see him closing a ticket, as most of his time is dedicated to the training of our ever growing support team!

Here go the personal top 6 of Mihail, the head of SiteGround Development department, who has started working at SiteGround 10 years ago. Back then, he not only developed the first version of our CRM and all the backend systems of the website but was also providing technical support to the first customers! Get ready for some real fun...
SiteGround is turning 10 in March.

To pave the way I share below my own personal SiteGround top 7:
Recently there has been a growing buzz on the web that there are hosts taking quite a solid stand against having Joomla 1.5 on their servers. So in the light of the event I would like to take a minute and explain the SiteGround view point: what are the challenges of hosting Joomla 1.5 and how do we face them.
