Free ID Protect with New .com/.net Domains!
During November SiteGround will run a special promotion. All people, who register a new .com or .net domain through their SiteGround user area before the end of the month, will be able to also claim one year free domain privacy service. It will protect their personal information related to the registered domain, which is otherwise visible through the WHOIS services. To take advantage of this promotion just login to your user area.
How We Compare to Other Hosts?
To keep an eye on where we stand in comparison to the other hosting providers we run periodic tests. In October, we decided to share the test results with our affiliates and help them use some interesting facts when recommending SiteGround. If you are also curious to see how we compare to other hosts, you can find the video and the slides from our affiliate webinar in the blog.
jHackGuard Major Update
jHackGuard is an in-house Joomla security plugin that comes as part of any Joomla installation made through our system. We are happy to announce a major upgrade to it that will make our Joomla sites better protected than ever. Each new Joomla will come preinstalled with the new version of the plugin and you will be able to upgrade an already installed plugin with a click from the Joomla admin.
Fixed Security Vulnerabilities
Last month kept our tech experts busy with several vulnerabilities and we would like to turn your attention to two of them. First, if you are a Drupal user you should have heard about the major Drupal critical security flaw. As always, we applied security rules to protect our Drupal users and we also emailed each user with a personal urge to update. Another vulnerability we fixed on server level was related with WP eCommerce plugin.

More Speed with WP Rocket
SiteGround recently partnered with WP Rocket - a plugin for WordPress speed optimization. We especially love the way it minifies JS and CSS and optimizes image loading. If you are already using our own SuperCacher, you do not need to use WP Rocket caching functionality, but you can greatly benefit from the rest of its features. As part of our partnership, SiteGround clients can get 20% discount off the plugin’s price.
