20 Years SiteGround: 20 Lessons from Two Decades in Business

In 2024, we celebrate a huge milestone – 20 years in the web hosting business. In our dynamic sector, such milestones are not only markers of time, they are indicators of hard work, adaptability, striving for excellence, and staying true to your values. Our journey was filled with all of that and a lot more!

For two decades, SiteGround has been at the forefront of the web hosting industry, helping millions of creative and ambitious individuals start their online presence. Our journey has been nothing short of inspiring, filled with challenges, growth, learning, and most importantly, the loyalty and support of our clients and partners.

A Look Back

The story of SiteGround began in 2004 with a dream: we wanted to create a hosting service that redefines the standards in this field. We weren’t happy with the level of service offered at the time, so we rolled up our sleeves to build the service we would like to use ourselves. In the beginning, our team was very small and everyone was doing everything, wearing multiple hats. At the end of the first intense year, we got a few hundred clients.

Today, SiteGround is a family of over 500 smart, enthusiastic, and hardworking people. Our hosting platform is home to more than 3 Million domains, and our data centers are spread over 6 continents. All these achievements are the result of our commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction.

20 Valuable Lessons from 20 Years in Business

Through the past 20 years, we’ve witnessed many changes and developments – in technology, in our industry, in consumer behavior, and in the way people work. We’ve also learned invaluable lessons along the way.

We feel these extend beyond the web hosting field and apply to any online venture or business. From adapting to technological changes to creating strong client relationships, each experience has helped us grow. For our 20th anniversary, we want to share the lessons we learned, hoping to help you on your way to success.

And that’s not all – on our 20th-anniversary website, you will also find links to our special giveaway featuring exclusive 20th-anniversary merch. Join us in celebrating this milestone and stand a chance to win limited edition SiteGround swag.

A Big Thank You

As we celebrate our 20th-anniversary milestone, we do so with gratitude to our clients who have entrusted us with their websites and businesses, to our team members for their dedication and passion, and to our partners for their loyalty and cooperation. We begin our next chapter with even more enthusiasm for the opportunities ahead, and commitment to keep our top-notch hosting service. Here’s to the next 20 years of success together!

What do you actually do? How good is your security, including quickly detecting spammers using your shared server thus getting every customer on it blacklisted?

Hey there, thanks for the question. At SiteGround, we prioritize security on multiple levels to ensure our customers’ websites are protected. Our servers are equipped with the latest PHP versions and run in a secure Apache environment. We have advanced systems in place to block harmful bots and attacks, and our custom security module actively scans incoming requests to protect against common threats. Additionally, despite offering shared servers, the users are completely isolated from each other. We also have developed AI anti-bot system that effectively blocks millions of security threats every day, including brute-force attacks. For more detailed information on this system, please visit the following link. For your website’s security, our Site Scanner tool performs daily scans of your site’s URLs and domains, alerting you to any threats via email notifications. You can learn more about Site Scanner here. In terms of email security, we actively monitor our servers for spam activities to prevent any potential blacklisting. We support the implementation of SPF and DKIM records to help ensure emails from our servers are not marked as spam. Additionally, we have developed an in-house spam protection solution that filters out spam messages and potential threats before they reach your inbox, significantly reducing the risk of phishing and malware. For more information on our spam protection solution, please check out the following article. We hope this provides a clear understanding of how seriously we take security at SiteGround. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out directly to our support team. Here are the steps to follow: stgrnd.co/contactus/. They are available 24/7 and would be happy to help.
