Google PageSpeed now in the SuperCacher!

Google Page Speed

As you already know, we @SiteGround HQ are obsessed with server performance and website loading speed. That is why we initially created the SuperCacher. It has already speeded up many of our customers’ websites and has been extremely well received by our users. Now, just a few months after the initial launch, we are happy to announce а new great caching option added to our SuperCacher -- the Google's PageSpeed Apache module.

SuperCacher: we go beyond being just fast!


Throughout the years SiteGround accomplished remarkable results in terms of performance and loading speed of our clients’ websites. To name a few of our achievements: frequent change of server gear with newer and more powerful one; rewriting the most commonly used software (such as Apache & php) in order to serve web pages even faster; tuning up our OS so it serves millions of requests per minute; adding multiple server locations across the globe so that content is nearer to your users, etc.

Hardware Upgrades 2012

SiteGround New Gear

If you are a SiteGround client and you have been one for more than a couple of years, you probably have noticed that we tend to change our hardware quite often. This has been mine and SiteGrounds' philosophy for quite some time now.

Most hosts will brag about high-tech brand new hardware configurations on their websites but what remains hidden is that they use this hardware only for the new servers they set up. Usually, they won't replace a working machine for any reason. In fact they will keep it (even if 5 years old) until it’s dead broken and they are forced to restore all affected websites from a backup. This means that even if you get a good hardware initially, as time goes by you will be stuck with it and you will get slower and crappier service until your old server crashes and you are “lucky” to be moved to the new hardware.

SiteGround HQ – bigger and more inspiring than ever!

It's been a while since I've written anything in the blog, actually 4 months... and oh my, those were some busy 4 months. But today I want to share the excitement of the successful completion of one of the big projects that kept me occupied recently – the move of the SiteGround HQ to a new office space.

And this is not just a new building – it is a place that has been created to open new opportunities and to inspire the creativity of our team even further.
