Security solutions

Power Redundancy

Our data centers provide high level electricity redundancy with multiple failover options including multiple power feeds, own power generators and enterprise-class UPS technology.

Hardware Redundancy

We keep on-site replacement parts for every model of server hardware in operation to facilitate immediate reaction in the event of a hardware problem.

LXC-based Stability

Our talented DevOps team has built our unique hosting platform based on one of the hottest virtualization technologies - Linux Containers (LXC). Many of the Linux Kernel changes we have made while building the platform have been highly acclaimed by the official Linux Kernel developers and are now part of the Linux Kernel source code. The LXC is extremely resource-efficient and also allows us to easily scale up server resources in times of high load. Thus unexpected traffic spikes do not lead to downtime.

Unique Account Isolation

Thanks to our custom server setup, the accounts on all SiteGround shared servers are isolated from each other through a unique mechanism. Thus, even if there is one vulnerable hosting account, it will not affect the rest of the accounts on the same machine. This makes our shared hosting environment as secure as much more expensive dedicated solutions.

The Fastest Server Monitoring

Our in-house created monitoring system checks the server status every 0.5 sec, which far more often than the usual monitoring systems used in our industry. It not only detects ongoing issues and fixes many of them automatically, but is also able to prevent potential problems. On top of this we also have 24/7 human monitoring.

Anti-Hack Systems & Help

Each year we add hundreds of new rules to our WAF (Web Application Firewall) to protect WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other applications from possible attacks. We have a strong record of fixing massive vulnerabilities by providing a protective rule on the same day an issue is announced.

Proactive Updates and Patches

The highest security level of our server software is ensured not only by regular updates but also by multiple custom security patches written by our outstanding DevOps team.

Spam Protection

We offer one of the most advanced solutions against SPAM - Spam Protection by SolarWinds Spam Experts on all our servers at no additional cost. Easily scalable and Site Tools integrated, Spam Protection provides filter for both incoming and outgoing email messages and allows easier management of spam filtering, quarantine zones, as well as email traffic stats insight.

Solutions for Developers

Default PHP version managed by us (7.1)

We closely monitor each newly released PHP version. When it reaches a stable point and it is both safer and better performing than our currently recommended PHP version, we automatically update your site to use the new one. Since December 2019 all new sites are activated by default to use our managed PHP service. The service can be easily switched on through Site Tools for older websites too.

Custom PHP Versions 7.4, 7.3, 7.2, 7.1, 7.0 & 5.6

Apart from our managed default PHP version we allow each customer to choose between multiple versions of PHP for each of their sites.

Free SSH and SFTP Access

Our free SSH is developed in-house to allow secure account-restricted access. It gives you an encrypted secure connection to your account to manage easily large files and even databases. It is especially useful to administrators and web developers looking to enable direct secure access to their hosting account on the web server. With SSH enabled, you can also take advantage of SFTP for secure file access, transfer and management.

MySQL & PostgreSQL Databases

We offer an unlimited number of MySQL and PostgreSQL databases. You can easily create and manage them through the corresponding systems: phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin.

FTP Accounts

With SiteGround you can create Unlimited FTP accounts with specific restrictions on what the different people connected to your website can upload and download. Adding and removing FTP accounts is easy, as well as changing their passwords.

Many More Technologies Supported

In your account you can also use a variety of image galleries, PHP libraries, PHP encoders and other. A few of the most popular ones are: GD library, ImageMagick, CURL, Zlib, Zend Optimizer, ionCube, SourceGuardian, Mod_rewrite, .htaccess, Smarty Templates, php.ini.

Staging

Our staging feature is available for WordPress websites. It allows you to create a copy of your live site on a separate, staging environment with a single click. You can test any new code and designs on the staging copy, prior to pushing those changes to the production site. Pushing from staging to live takes only one click and automatically creates a backup of your live site, in case you need to reverse the changes.

Premium
Pre-Installed Git

Git is preinstalled on our GoGeek servers and you can use it to create repositories of your website, which you can later access, download and edit on multiple local branches using Git.

Free Email Accounts

You can have an unlimited number of FREE email accounts at your domain name - e.g. you@yourdomain.com. You can also use forwarders and aliases that allow you to forward emails received to any of your email accounts to another mailbox. Our hosting plan includes two of the most popular web-based mail clients: RoundCube and Horde, so you can access your email accounts from any computer with an Internet connection.

Unlimited MySQL DB

You can have an unlimited number of MySQL databases with all our shared hosting plans.

Unlimited Sub and Parked Domains

A subdomain allows you to create a separate website under your main domain name. For example, if your domain is siteground.com the sub domain would look like blog.siteground.com. Parked domains, on the other hand, allow you to have multiple domain names pointing to the same website. For example, registering siteground.net and siteground.us and assigning them to point to siteground.com.

Friendly Site Tools

All sites in our shared plans come with powerful and intuitive Site Tools, which allows you to manage easily your site files, emails, databases, DNS zones, backups, caching and many more features.

30 Days Money Back

We offer 30-day money back guarantee on all shared hosting plans.

100% Renewable Energy Match

Our main data center partner - Google Cloud - matches 100% the energy consumed by their global operations with renewable energy and maintains a commitment to carbon neutrality.

Performance boosters

Servers on Three Continents

We offer you 4 data center locations for the best website speed for visitors from USA, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. In each location we use only top-of-the-line hardware with extensively tested configuration.

SSD Storage

Files and databases on all of our shared hosting plans are stored on cutting-edge Solid State Drive technology. SSDs provide for a 1000x increase in input/output operations as compared to regular drives.

Customized Server Setup

We have built a unique platform for our shared hosting plans, based on Linux containers. On top of them we use a customized CentOS and a mixture of Apache and NGINX web server technologies to ensure unmatched shared server performance.

Free CDN with Each Account

Our free Cloudflare CDN makes your website load faster in any part of the world by caching its content and distributing it over multiple data centers. When foreign visitors access your website, our CDN delivers the content much faster from the closest data center to them. Thanks to its wide network, Cloudflare also protects your site by identifying and blocking malicious traffic to it.

HTTP/2 enabled servers

HTTP/2 is the newest version of the HTTP protocol and it allows browsers to load websites much faster. HTTP/2 is supported on our servers. This means that all people that use a HTTP/2 ready browser to visit your site will enjoy faster loading times.

SuperCacher

We have developed our in-house caching service to increase the number of hits a site can handle and drastically boost loading speed. Our SuperCacher offers three levels of caching options to accelerate your site: Level 1: NGINX Direct Delivery; Level 2: Dynamic data cache, both powered by NGINX; and Level 3: Database queries results cache, running on Memcached.

Security solutions

Power Redundancy

Our data centers provide high level electricity redundancy with multiple failover options including multiple power feeds, own power generators and enterprise-class UPS technology.

Hardware Redundancy

We keep on-site replacement parts for every model of server hardware in operation to facilitate immediate reaction in the event of a hardware problem. In the rare cases requiring the information to be transferred to a new machine, we are among the very few hosting companies that keep whole spare servers at hand, installed, plugged and ready to go in a matter of minutes to dramatically minimize downtime in such cases.

LXC-based Stability

Our talented DevOps team has built our unique hosting platform based on one of the hottest virtualization technologies - Linux Containers (LXC). Many of the Linux Kernel changes we have made while building the platform have been highly acclaimed by the official Linux Kernel developers and are now part of the Linux Kernel source code. The LXC is extremely resource-efficient and also allows us to easily scale up server resources in times of high load. Thus unexpected traffic spikes do not lead to downtime.

Unique Account Isolation

Thanks to our custom server setup, the accounts on all SiteGround shared servers are isolated from each other through a unique mechanism. Thus, even if there is one vulnerable hosting account, it will not affect the rest of the accounts on the same machine. This makes our shared hosting environment as secure as much more expensive dedicated solutions.

The Fastest Server Monitoring

Our in-house created monitoring system checks the server status every 0.5 sec, which far more often than the usual monitoring systems used in our industry. It not only detects ongoing issues and fixes many of them automatically, but is also able to prevent potential problems. On top of this we also have 24/7 human monitoring.

Anti-Hack Systems & Help

Each year we add hundreds of new rules to our WAF (Web Application Firewall) to protect WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other applications from possible attacks. We have a strong record of fixing massive vulnerabilities by providing a protective rule on the same day an issue is announced.

Proactive Updates and Patches

The highest security level of our server software is ensured not only by regular updates but also by multiple custom security patches written by our outstanding DevOps team.

Spam Protection

We offer one of the most advanced solutions against SPAM - Spam Protection by SolarWinds Spam Experts on all our servers at no additional cost. Easily scalable and Site Tools integrated, Spam Protection provides filter for both incoming and outgoing email messages and allows easier management of spam filtering, quarantine zones, as well as email traffic stats insight.

Automated Daily Backup

We backup account data on our hosting servers on a daily basis for up to 30 days back. In case of emergency, you can easily restore your website, email or files with a few easy clicks. The restores are free and take just a few clicks in our easy restore tool.

Advanced On-demand Backup

Have a peace of mind with any changes you make to your website by creating an instant backup and be able to restore from it if something goes wrong. You can create up to 5 on-demand backups at a time with our GrowBig and GoGeek package or purchase single backups with StartUp.
