SiteGround Labor Day Promotion

If you visit SiteGround website the next few days you may start wondering if we are changing business from selling web hosting to selling casual attire. Well, we are definitely not doing this:), what you see is actually our Labor Day Promotion:

Labor Day Promotion

As you probably know we have the habit of offering promotions for most of the major Holidays. That is why you can often see our website being overtaken by colorful eggs, carved pumpkins, cartoon turkeys and Santa Clauses, offering lower prices and free extra services. However, when it comes to Labor Day, things are a little bit more difficult. The lack of widely recognized “labor day” symbols made us search for some more unexpected images for our promotion. The inspiration came from the fact that around Labor Day most of us are taking our last summer vacations, and are getting ready for the serious work season coming forward.

OpenFest – open source conference sponsored by SiteGround

SiteGround was a proud sponsor for a second consecutive year of the largest Conference for open source software on the Balkans – the OpenFest. The event was held last weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria. This was the 7th consecutive annual gathering of open source developers and fans from the region and it attracted more than 30 speakers and 700 participants.

Among the most interesting speakers on the conference were Cornel Creanga from Adobe Romania, two of the Bulgarian developers, working on the Samba4 project, Philip Paeps - a prominent FreeBSD contributor from Belgium and many more. SiteGround Head System Administrator-- Marian Marinov, also participated in the conference with a special presentation on Artificial Intelligence(AI) in the System Administration, which provoked great interest and was visited by more than 150 professionals.

As a web hosting provider we depend greatly on open source software in our daily work. And what is even more important: our customers greatly depend on open source applications for creating and maintaining their websites. We believe that without the open source ideas and applications the web would have never been so widely used by the people and the web hosting industry would have never been so big and successful. That is why we are happy to support OpenFest and other events dedicated to the open source software development as a humble contribution back from the industry to the great idea.

Sharing Halloween fun on Facebook!

Halloween Contest

As Halloween is getting near we went through the pictures from the last year SiteGround wild costume party and we remembered the great fun we had! Someone from the support team joked how great it would be if this year we can invite one of the funniest customers Mr. Jones, whose tickets have always been written with a great sense of humor, and see what costume he will choose. At first we laughed but after a while it stroke me that there is a place, where we can really invite all our friends and see how original they get. This place is our Facebook page, where we organized a Halloween Photo contest.
