HTTP/2 Now Available on all shared/cloud servers at SiteGround

http2

The Internet as we all know it today wouldn’t have existed without the HTTP protocol. It is the heart and soul that pumps content to all of us. It makes it possible for us to read the latest news, order stuff online, watch videos on YouTube and get to our favourite websites on all types of devices - workstations with 27-inch displays, laptops, mobile phones, tablets and even e-readers that offer browsing capabilities. Sadly, that protocol has not been changed since 1999 when version 1.1 was released so, when HTTP/2 was released earlier this year, it was a source of major excitement. Of course, the SiteGround team has immediately started working on it and we are now happy to announce that all our shared and cloud servers support HTTP/2.

JetPack XSS Security Issue – What We Did to Protect You

jetpack
On October 1st, a security issue in JetPack, one of the most commonly used WordPress plugins, was disclosed by our partners from Sucuri. The vulnerability was severe because an attacker could exploit the contact form feature of the plugin to insert and execute JavaScript code as an admin of your site. Needless to say, that could lead to all sort of problems - injecting black SEO links, adding backdoors for full access to your account, accessing private information, etc. In this recap post, we would like to summarise what we did to protect SiteGround users with this plugin installed.
