At SiteGround, we take pride in calling web hosting our “craft.” For us, a craftsperson is someone who puts heart and soul in their work, aims for delivering high-quality service, and pays attention to detail in all aspects of the process. But we were curious: is that how other people see it as well? How do we visually communicate the idea of craftsmanship in the highly technological context of the web hosting industry? Read More
A lot of work goes into building a successful website, big or small. SiteGround’s mission is to help people tell their story, share their work, or grow their business online by creating a high-performance and secure foundation for their site. However, there are things outside of our hosting expertise that we can't deliver at scale.
For these tasks, we wanted to refer our customers to trustworthy partners, so we don’t leave a client-in-need wondering what to do. When we met Codeable, a service that can perform common WordPress development and design tasks, we knew they could deliver the services many of our customers need.
To kickstart our partnership, we’re offering SiteGround customers $60 they can put towards their first Codeable project or up to a one-hour consultation with a WordPress professional.
If you freelance, run a startup, or work remotely like me, we have some exciting news for you! SiteGround is partnering with WeWork, the world's fastest-growing network of coworking spaces, to help web professionals in our community enjoy the productivity boost of an inspiring office space. We’re thrilled to announce that WeWork is offering SiteGround customers up to 15% off.
Email communication is one of the foundations of an effective online marketing and a key to growing your business. But in order to start an email communication, you need to get those visitors’ emails first. One of the best ways to do this is to convert visitors into subscribers while they're still on your website, using opt-in forms. And some of the most effective opt-in forms are the dynamic ones that grab your visitors’ attention instantly - the exit pop-ups or floating subscription bars for example. But how do you create and implement a beautiful and effective opt-in popup form without having a team of designers, marketers and developers? A good option used by many of our customers is OptinMonster - a tool for a hassle-free lead generation. And through a recent SiteGround partnership with OptinMonster our users can now get a 30-day free trial and some special discounts.
“Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome.” This is part of the manifesto of CreativeMornings–a global monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Their motto in the spirit of our Community Series is just part of the reason why we love and support our local CM chapter. It is also what inspired our joint #CMCreativeTravels campaign that will take one person from our community to a CreativeMornings event of their choice anywhere in the world. But first, a little background.
Four years ago we stumbled on the following somewhere on the web: “Offscreen - a print-only magazine about the people behind the internet and technology.” Naturally, our first thought was “Why make a print magazine for people who spend most of their time online?” It certainly piqued our curiosity, and that’s how we came to order our first issue of Offscreen. It was also issue No1 – a brand new magazine. Today, we happily received Issue No14 at the SiteGround office.
Few months ago WordSesh organizers contacted us asking if we would host their online conference. Needless to say, we got quite excited to help this great WordPress event happen. The project was very interesting from a technical point of view too, as we needed to ensure that thousands of visitors will be able to follow the free live stream for 24 hours without any downtime or other technical issue.
UPDATE: In 2019 SiteGround recommends our in-house developed free optimization plugin - SG Optimizer, which offers full optimization service for your website. Should you choose to use a specific plugin like WP Rocket that has an overlapping functionality with the SG Optimizer plugin, we recommend you disable that option in the SiteGround Optimizer interface.
Site speed has always been a priority for SiteGround. As you know we carefully choose our hardware, we do a lot of customizations on the server software and we have added Varnish and Memcached support within our SuperCacher plugin. All this is done to provide you the fastest possible environment. However, the speed of your site depends not only on the environment it’s hosted on but on the way it’s built and handled by browsers too. This is why we’re happy to announce our partnership with the creators of the WP Rocket plugin for WordPress which can further optimize the speed of your WordPress by improving the way it is opened by the browsers.
