Dear Client,

Spring season stroke in full force at SiteGround Headquarters – fighting off the global brute-force attack against WordPress and Joomla to begin with and following that up in a special podcast interview later. Then straight off to putting up our newest Webinar series. We also managed to sneak in some long-awaited updates and launched our brand new Reseller Area for our loyal partners. Read more about all of it below.

Tenko Nikolov
A Recap of the Global Brute-force Attack on Joomla & WP
Joomla Beat Podcast

Without a doubt the event of the past month was the global brute-force attack against Joomla and WordPress websites. The unusual thing about it was how quickly it managed to escalate and spread to affect almost any web hosting provider on the planet, but also how it proved that a lot of the hosts have weak security policies and not very good action strategy in battling a brute-force crisis of such magnitutes.

Our approach at eliminating it and the further precautions we took once again proved to be among the most efficient ones, whithout limiting the clients. It was exactly our unique pro-active take on the situation that sprung the author of the podcast to invite our CEO Tenko for an interview, where they could both ponder a little more on the events, what caused them and how they can be avoided.

SiteGround Webinar Series
SiteGround Joomla Webinars

Since we really like to share know-how, we came up with yet another new way to extend our resources and help you get your websites up and running faster - the SiteGround Webinar series. We're already gaining momentum with two completed webinars for the first week only! The theme of our first webinar was How to Speed Up Your Joomla Site, hosted by our team member Daniel, followed by Webinar 2: How to Get Higher Rankings for Your Joomla Site in association with our friend Richard Pearce. Lots of other partners are also excited about the idea and we will cooperate with them to bring you first-hand experience and knowledge on the nitty-gritty of setting up and running an online business.

Catch up with our first two Webinars here

Reseller Area Redesign
SiteGround Reseller Area Redesign

Another long-awaited and important project was completed this month. The SiteGround Reseller Area was completely re-designed to improve the way reseller account information is displayed and to simplify the way clients interact with it. Our resellers can now enjoy the same advanced interface and improved functionality we introduced some time ago for our regular customers, along with the specific functionality they are already used to with multiple improvements. Nearly a month after its release, we are happy to report the new Reseller look and feel has been accepted very well by the clients, we've received lots of positive feedback and will continue to introduce improvements in the near future.
