siteground logo February 2013 Newsletter

Dear Client,

Even the shortest month of the year proved not to be uneventful at SiteGround. We deepened our relationship with leading partners and re-organized some of our self-help resources to top off your hosting experience with even more value-added extras. We also completed the process of migrating all our shared servers to our latest server hardware. So we're all geared up for some exciting improvements in the months to come!

More value-added features

Those of you who are already familiar with Cloudflare CDN will be pleased to know that we've extended our partnership even further. We launched Railgun, a component ensuring that your website is cached and distributed over the Cloudflare network as fast as possible. Offered by exclusive partners only and normally included in plans starting from $200 per month, Railgun will be available with Cloudflare on all SiteGround servers for FREE!

Another unique in-house feature developed by SiteGround is a tool that automatically configures websites to be accessible through www, which is a requirement of the CDN network. By automating this process, we ensure all people who have activated Cloudflare are efficiently utilizing it. The following article explains the new automatic tool in a little more details.

Knowledge base update and redesign

The redesign of our Knowledge base section includes a better organization of topics and a better search mechanism. The idea behind it was to make self-help articles easier to find and less of a hassle. We also added a rating system to be able to easily get feedback on certain topics from you, the people who use it. We do regular checks of articles with poor rating and rewrite them in an effort to make our knowledge base a central hub for self-help and know-how.

Towards the end of last year we announced the beginning of a thorough server hardware upgrade.

Your website is now running on the latest top-notch server configuration.
