GoDaddy Launches Business Hosting for Fast-Growing Small Businesses

Combines easy-to-use cPanel with dedicated resources, power and performance of virtual private servers

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the world's largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, today announced Business Hosting – a new, powerful, yet easy-to-manage hosting platform designed for high-traffic, e-commerce, and resource-intensive websites. GoDaddy Business Hosting includes a simple cPanel that gives customers with limited technical skills the ability to manage new and existing websites and manage their DNS in an easy to use control panel interface. GoDaddy Business Hosting is the latest in the company's efforts to expand its products for small businesses who need advanced solutions, but may not have deep technical expertise.

"We've noticed fast-growing companies with resource-intensive websites upgrade to advanced hosting or VPS solutions for enhanced performance capabilities. The jump can be jarring, and there's typically a complex learning curve as well," said Demetrius Comes, vice president of Engineering at GoDaddy. "GoDaddy Business Hosting is a direct result of simplifying and enhancing the customer experience. By marrying our preconfigured cPanel offering and the performance of VPS, we're the first to provide an advanced hosting solution without the need for server management or server administrative skills."

The process of moving from GoDaddy's shared hosting to GoDaddy Business Hosting is simple. Customers can upgrade with a single click, and file migration is handled automatically – eliminating the need to uninstall and reinstall files. From there, customers receive unmetered bandwidth, allowing their website to effectively handle increasing traffic without slow load times. Users can also monitor resource activity as they grow, ensuring they can make necessary upgrades before webpage load times decrease. Business Hosting provides dedicated resources like RAM and storage along with allocated CPUs giving additional processing power for resource-intensive websites.

"GoDaddy Business Hosting eliminates the limitations of shared hosting by keeping websites in an isolated environment where customers get dedicated resources," said Raghu Murthi, senior vice president of Hosting at GoDaddy. "Growing businesses now have the option of more power and performance for their websites, without needing to worry about the technical complexities found in a VPS. With this, small businesses can continue to focus on what they do best."
