[Update: Offer is no longer valid] Barely into the start of the new year, we already have a new extra to tell you about! The Google AdWords online advertising program has been around for quite some time and has already proved to be one of the most successful and efficient ways to promote your website online. We have been trying for some time now to reach an agreement with Google to start promoting their program to SiteGround clients by giving vouchers for free advertising, because we really do believe that people who get the opportunity to try it out, will see for themselves how efficient it is. Google, however, have a very strict policy on the country availability for the program and it took us some time to finally get a chance to provide our customers with this service. Read More
Fantastico has been on our servers for a long time now, and it is quite possible that you know and like the smiley face in your cPanel, and have used it to install or update a software on your hosting account. However, we have started to get the impression that the guys behind the auto-installer have become a little spoiled by the fact that many people use Fantastico just because it is integrated in the cPanel and are sometimes a little negligent about the quality of their service. Just a few examples from our experience to back up this statement:
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:
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.
We’re excited to announce our new service – Hackalert. Hackalert is the latest malware detection and early warning system available out there, powered by our partner GlobalSign-one of the longest established Certification Authorities and specialists in SSL security.
Malware is developed and improved every day to compromise PCs and spread viruses, hijack computers or steal personal information. One of the biggest fears of website owners is for their site to be infected with hidden malicious code and then used as a vehicle to distribute it to the website visitors. Unless remedied quickly, an infected website will shortly be flagged or blacklisted by search engines like Google for hosting malicious content. When visiting a flagged website, its visitors and potential customers will see worrying warnings about the site potentially harming their computers. In both cases, you can expect a steady drop in your website traffic, at the least.
