Magento Dynamic Caching Now Available!

Dynamic Cache for Magento

UPDATE: June 25 2015. The SuperCacher service for Magento is now available only on our Cloud Hosting and Dedicated plans.

If your site cannot handle all your visitors or is too slow to display your goods & services, it would matter very little how much effort you put in creating a beautiful storefront and comfortable customer experience. We know that many Magento users have to go for expensive hosting solutions in order to avoid possible performance issues. Not with SiteGround. We are happy to have significantly increased the number of people successfully using and growing their Magento websites on a shared hosting platform with the help of our newest addition to the SuperCacher – the Varnish-based dynamic cache option for Magento stores.

SiteGround Goes Back to School… To Help Students

SiteGround Students Program

During the last year few university professors, who use SiteGround web hosting for their personal projects, approached us with a similar issue: they were not happy with the generic hosting solutions provided by their academic institutions and they preferred to reveal the secrets of the web to their students using SiteGround hosting instead. Of course the main bummer was the fact that the standard hosting fees were not very suitable for most of the students. So we started to work on a special Student hosting program to help the future stars of the internet get started easily without extra budget required. Today we are happy to announce the latest and improved version of our Student Web Hosting Program. Read More

Who updates your WordPress?

basie3

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.

90 FREE Days of Eggcellent Analytics with CrazyEgg

90 Days Free CrazyEgg Subscription!

Usually, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “web analytics” is streams of data and SEO. That's because everyone is concerned about getting traffic. But traffic is just the first step towards building a successful website. One of the most important aspects of any website is whether visitors actually do what you want them to do. Does your website design manage to guide users to the right information, so that they don't leave? Do they click on the action buttons? And more importantly, would your website perform better in its goals, if you made even minor structure and design changes. CrazyEgg is the simple heat map tool that gives you the answers to all these questions.

Update: The Moz 60-day Free Trial for SiteGround customers has expired.

SiteGround + Moz

Lets face it, lots of website owners still shiver at the word „SEO“ - either because it's perceived as time-consuming and tricky business, but also because everyone has an opinion on it and you never know what the latest trend is. We've all been there, and if there is one company who's working actively towards turning this perception around, that is Moz (formerly SEOMoz).

The new SiteGround.com is now super fast!

superfast

A lot has been said about our new website design: how it looks, what values it communicates and how it changes our hosting plans structure. However, I would like to turn your attention to another aspect of our new website - its amazing loading speed. During the last year I have worked consistently on implementing a lot of speed-related innovations to our hosting service (multiple server locations, Cloudflare CDN, the SuperCacher). I have also talked about speed optimizations on many events, but mainly in the context of our customers’ websites. Now it is the time that I shed some light on the magic behind our own website´s amazing loading speed.

Our Dedicated Servers just got more awesome!

postheader

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.
