Hello, I’m Robbie Adair, and I’m one of the co-organizers of the first annual JoomlaDay Houston here in Texas. We are excited about the upcoming event and have a fantastic line-up of speakers. You can view the schedule and more details on the site - joomladayhouston.com.
One of my favourite SiteGround projects that kept some of us quite busy recently is now successfully rolled out! I am very happy to tell you that we have integrated Git in our hosting service. It is the newest addition to the multiple state-of-the-art tools (like WordPress/Joomla Staging tool, WP-CLI, Drush CLI for Drupal sites, etc.) that we have created to make your website management easier. Staying true to our craftsmanship approach, we have developed our custom Git cPanel plugin which fully supports the most popular web applications - WordPress, Joomla!, Magento, PrestaShop and Drupal.
Last weekend was all about WordCamp Europe! The city of Leiden in the Netherlands got shaken up by the WordPress people. The first and biggest WordPress European event was something to remember as there were lots of great stories told, new things learned, friendships made, and it was all topped up by the wildest event after party I have seen recently. So if you were not there you definitely missed a lot!
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.
After a short summer break our educational webinar initiative continues with WordPress! Yesterday we hosted our first WordPress webinar about WordPress security with Brad Williams and Brian Messenlehner from WebDevStudios. We had a really good crowd of attendees and a great discussion at the end.
There are more webinars to come and we would love to hear from you about your preferred topics. Throw your suggestions in the comments below!
As the tradition goes, we’re sharing the video replay and the presentation slides!
Ahoy, mateys! After spending three days with my new co-workers at the beach (hence the sailor speak), I am making my debut on the company blog, to share what it is like to get started at SiteGround. A boatful of new crew members has recently joined the company. More than 15 people, with me being one of them, have been recently hired by SiteGround to enlarge the customer service team and the marketing department. And before you got the wrong idea, our training was not held on the beach and was a little longer than three days. However, it was followed by the annual SG team building, which was a great finish to our initiation.
SiteGround web hosting company has recently enhanced its service in order to target better its European users. Last week the company introduced prices in EURO and British Pounds, additional free European domain names and more convenient access to phone support from the territory of the old continent. This is not the first step that SiteGround takes to get closer to markets outside the USA. Last year the company launched its first server location in Europe and a few months later one more in Asia. The special attention to its international customers is now extended with new enhancements targeting the European citizens.
Brace yourself, Europe! In October the SiteGround crew is coming for the biggest WordPress conference on the old continent – WordCamp Europe! And that's not all – four of our clients will have the chance to win a free entry ticket for the event and be invited as VIP guests at the SiteGround booth and at a special SiteGround dinner.
