Do you know that feeling when you’re not in front of your computer, but you need to find something online quickly – you thank God for your smart phone. It has everything you need in the palm of your hand. You start browsing on your phone, looking up what you need online. And then the frustration kicks in - even if it is a website that you use every day on your computer, if it is not optimized for mobile devices, opening it up on a smart phone and finding what you need can take ages. Up to the point when you give up – and simply try googling a new site that will give you what you want faster, on time and in a way that you can easily read and interact with on your mobile phone.

When I say SPAM, you will most probably think of the annoying unwanted emails INCOMING to your own Inbox, and this is definitely one of the SPAM aspects we have been fighting for a long time and which I am proud we have already minimized very successfully. However, in this post I would like to address another aspect – the OUTGOING SPAM: how it affects you and what is the newest solution we have applied to it.
Since I started dealing with hosting (and probably many years before that), outgoing SPAM has been one of the most troublesome aspects for a hosting company. It might sound strange to you, but the spammers are causing hosting companies (and you, our customers) a lot of troubles, headaches and even migraines. How? I will explain in details below. Read More

[Update: Offer is no longer valid] Barely into the start of the new year, we already have a new extra to tell you about! The Google AdWords online advertising program has been around for quite some time and has already proved to be one of the most successful and efficient ways to promote your website online. We have been trying for some time now to reach an agreement with Google to start promoting their program to SiteGround clients by giving vouchers for free advertising, because we really do believe that people who get the opportunity to try it out, will see for themselves how efficient it is. Google, however, have a very strict policy on the country availability for the program and it took us some time to finally get a chance to provide our customers with this service. Read More
It’s time for the second interview from our new blog series - “Meet our very special customers”. Today we introduce to you Saleh Bucay from Saudi Arabia. He has more than 10 websites hosted with us, and his first website al-nisa.net was uploaded on our servers only 2 months after launching SiteGround.com. What fascinates us most though are the projects he’s involved in. Read through the interview with him to learn who the Maranao people are and what the organization he’s involved in does to empower Muslim women. Read More

So, we took some time to test and review the new Joomla and see how it will work on our servers. The good news is that it is fully compatible and we can say for sure that it works on our hosting accounts flawlessly! Read More
