It’s been a while since we presented a customer in our blog! I am happy to introduce now Web Pepper, one of our big resellers and active FaceBook fans. He has shared some cool stories about how he got inspired by the Computer world, how he has chosen to work with WordPress and what was his experience with SiteGround.
Yes, we turned 9 last week! So many things have happened since we initially registered our domain name (on 22nd of March, 2004, which date we have chosen to celebrate as our birthday), that I feel like we have started it all in another lifetime! But what is SiteGround now, nine years after it was founded? As part of the birthday event there were lightning talks given by different people from the company, who felt like sharing some thoughts and ideas with the others. There were no rules who will talk and what will be the topic covered. However, what people chose to talk about naturally became a very good representation of what SiteGround is curently really about:
When you hear “end of year recap”, you probably imagine a big hall full of bored people that cannot wait for the managers to finish their polished presentations. Well, not when the recap event is happening at SiteGround! What we had instead, was a totally transformed office with one half of it looking like a gambling room with Roulette, Black Jack, Texas Hold'em and hot hostesses and the other half reminding of the Olympic Games and holding sport tournaments. These gaming activities were followed by the real yearly recap presentation that I bet was more fun and had better hosts and videos than the last Oscars. And the whole thing ended up with what can be surely awarded as the best night-life event of the year.
Have you noticed the shiny new banner in the your cPanel and the gold cloud in front of a sunburst icon that we have added at some point last month? If not, it is time to take a good look at them, because they link to a service that can make your website faster and safer. During the last few months we have been working on the implementation of the CloudFlare CDN into our web hosting service and now it is completely ready! Why did we bother and why should you care? Because CloudFlare CDN will add ninja power to your website with just one click and at no additional cost!
Waiting for the results of the first official customer survey to come out was one of the main thrills during the last few days in the SiteGround offices. Now that we have the results submitted and processed and the winner of the iPad selected, we are impatient to share all the survey news with you!
