Free Let’s Encrypt SSL

Why do you need an SSL?

Having an SSL is more than just a best practice for websites, it’s an industry standard. SSL certificates protect the data transmitted through your site and make sure you meet the requirements of search engines that flag unsecured sites. It is mandatory for ecommerce sites and those that gather user data.

Free SSL for all sites hosted on our platform

We partnered and financially supported since its founding the Let’s Encrypt project, which offers free SSL for anyone. With our in-house integration of Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates can be issued and renewed automatically for sites hosted on our platform.

All new sites hosted on our platform get the free Standard SSL enabled. Clients may switch to a free Wildcard SSL at any time from their Site Tools.Read more.

Managed Wordpress security & updates

Automatic WordPress Updates

Keeping your WordPress application up-to-date with the latest version is an important step in maintaining a secure site. Our automatic WordPress software and plugin updates make that process easy and fast. You can schedule how fast your site gets updated after a new version is released or even skip a version if you need more time to prepare for the update.

Custom Firewall Rules To Patch Vulnerabilities

We manage the overall security of your application at a server and firewall level by keeping track of WordPress-related vulnerabilities and patching against exploits. We add dozens of such rules each year and we are able to protect your sites even before the official developers release a security update.

All-in-one SiteGround Security Plugin

We crafted an all-in-one WordPress security plugin which combines everything you need to secure your website in one place. The SiteGround Security helps you protect your website from brute-force attacks, common hacks, data leaks, and more with a few clicks. It's a must-have for every WordPress site.

Unmatched WordPress Performance

Powerful Google Cloud Platform

Our platform is hosted on the Google Cloud and enjoys the fastest network and the latest modern hardware with SSD persistent storage. Google infrastructure is known for innovation, reliability and speed, which guarantees a great performance for any website.

Unique Caching Options

By default, we enable NGINX Direct Delivery for all sites on our servers, which means that certain items, like your images, will load faster from the memory of the server. However, the biggest impact on the WordPress loading speed is achieved when connecting your site with our NGINX-based dynamic cache and Memcached service. (The option is available on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans).

Free SiteGround Optimizer Plugin

Our free SiteGround Optimizer allows you to use all our unique caching options listed above. Through it you can also easily improve your site speed by setting the optimal PHP version, switching on the HTTPS option and using our automated image optimizations, lazy image loading, GZIP compression, CSS&HTML minifications and more.

+30% Faster PHP

Our custom PHP implementation makes your pages load up to 30% faster, cutting the TTFB (time to first byte) and allowing the server to process more of your visits faster. The service is available on GrowBig and higher plans. You can read more about this technology in our blog.
