The SiteGround team goes to many events, but the biggest and most important one for us this year was Bulgaria PHP Conference. Why? Well, it’s an event entirely organized by SiteGrounders and we invested all our passion, love, enthusiasm and tons of hard work into it in the last 8 months. Now that it’s over, we can relax and proudly say it turned out to be a huge success.
Most of our clients know that here at SiteGround we tend to upgrade our hardware quite often. We aim to ensure that all our clients’ sites run on the latest and fastest hardware on the market and when we spot a valuable new piece of hardware, we immediately start testing. This year again, we are getting ready to migrate all of our shared hosting servers to new supercharged monster servers. Unlike other times though, this time we’ll not only upgrade the hardware, but also the whole infrastructure of our shared hosting platform.
And yet another DrupalCon went by. SiteGround team attended one of the biggest Drupal events for the year to meet some of the smartest people in the community in Barcelona this week.
Starting a proper online shop with WooCommerce has so far meant: buying hosting, installing WordPress and then configuring several plugins. Given the popularity of the platform, it obviously is not a terribly complicated process, but it does assume some essential knowledge.
In collaboration with Automattic, the people behind WordPress and WooCommerce, we recently started working on removing that barrier, creating a one-step solution to get online and start selling. To make it right, we had to package plenty of features and ensure absolutely no setup time on the user’s end. Today, the WooCommerce Bundle is live. It’s everything you need to start a rockstar ecommerce website, and it’s up and running, hooked up and connected, right after sign-up.
