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? Well, to answer this question we were once again led by our principle: we make sure that the majority of our customers get the best option by default, but we allow the freedom to anyone to change the setup to whatever suits him/her best.
Last weekend was all about WordCamp Europe! The city of Leiden in the Netherlands got shaken up by the WordPress people. The first and biggest WordPress European event was something to remember as there were lots of great stories told, new things learned, friendships made, and it was all topped up by the wildest event after party I have seen recently. So if you were not there you definitely missed a lot!
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.
We are in a full-blown testing mode in the office. Our new website will be here very, very soon. While waiting, take a look at the three videos that will be part of the new SiteGround home page. They will explain a lot about SiteGround approach to web hosting and how we make your website safer, faster and better supported. But what is even more important, they will make you feel the real magic of our handmade philosophy.
During the last few months we have been working on an epic production, which will soon be released. The world premiere of our new website design will heat up the summer season. And this time it is not about impressing the audience with visual effects only. This time our website will tell a great story. The story is about how we do things that others never considered possible, and how we create a new and better shared hosting world for your website.
