Thank you for the “Boring” 2013!

Customer Survey 2013

The company conducting the SiteGround client satisfaction survey sent me the results yesterday. Their recap in the email was short: your data is plain boring! And yes, thank God, this was not “an interesting year” as far as it comes to business results and customer satisfaction! I would like to thank all the people, who participated in our 2013 customer survey and provided us with this great feedback. Keep reading for a summary of the most important results.

Who updates your WordPress?


This question is getting quite tricky recently. Now that a native autoupdater is included in the WordPress itself (it is one of the major new features in WordPress 3.7, that was released last week), will you ever again be required to click manually on the upgrade link in the WordPress admin? What will happen with the SiteGround WordPress auto updater? And after all, is it you, is it SiteGround or is it WordPress itself that is going to be responsible for the updates?

Our Dedicated Servers just got more awesome!


As far as the hardware is concerned, our dedicated offer has always been awesome. However, during the last few years we have added so many innovations to our shared hosting that our dedicated servers started to lag behind a little. Some of the options you loved so much, like the data center choice, the Joomla and WordPress Autoupdaters, the CDN service, etc.,  were not available for our dedicated server users.  The good news is that this is no longer  the case!  From now on all innovations implemented by SiteGround will be available for our dedicated server users too.
