Only few days after we moved to the new office we were happy to welcome our first very special guest: Brian Teeman. He is one of the Joomla founders and an amazingly interesting person to listen and talk to. He spent two days with the SiteGround team sharing with us his love for Joomla, his viewpoint what a good customer service is and his great sense of humor. It is just impossible to tell you everything we learned from him during the multiple sessions he held for our team in a single blog post, but I just need to share few of the things my fellow SiteGrounders pointed out as memorable:
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. A little less than a year after we moved our customer service office, SiteGround HQ now has a new home too. 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. Below you can see some pictures and read how I envision the new office will help us work better!
This week we celebrate our 8th year in business! When we look back after 8 years in the industry, we are so proud to say that not only most of our employees but a lot of our clients as well have been with us from the very beginning.
We started in 2004 with very little experience, but multiple times as much enthusiasm. We were a group of tech geek friends committed to learn and improve – and so we did. We very soon managed to make a name for ourselves as a small web hosting company with great potential. Our investment in skills and people in the form of multiple technical and management trainings paid off pretty soon. In short time we had everything we believed a good web hosting company should offer – fast and reliable hosting infrastructure, a variety of feature-rich hosting plans to fit the needs of any type of website, and first-class customer service ranging from our sales representatives to server administrators and technical support experts.
To be a part of the big SiteGround family is not only a constant challenge but also a great privilege. The energy and enthusiasm that we put in our every-day work is being ceaselessly revived by the numerous events and vacations that we take part in. Several months ago we were surprised with another such news - an upcoming ski vacation that will allow SiteGround winter sport lovers to spend some time together in the mountains.
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its sister bill Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) have become a very hot topic for all Internet businesses and users. We have already firmly stated SiteGround position against SOPA back in November and have been actively using our social media channels to raise awareness about the issue. In short: we are against those bills, because we believe they have the potential to take away the most important things we love Internet for – the freedom of speech and the possibilities to express oneself creatively. For more detailed explanation why many people support such a position we recommend the video below:
