NEW DELHI, INDIA: Non-tech-savvy customers will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they can get the server-level performance they need without delving into the technical complexities of server administration.


GoDaddy has expanded its hosting services in India with the launch of its Business Hosting platform- a high performance and easy-to-manage hosting platform that is fully optimized for high-traffic websites, e-commerce and resource-heavy websites.

It is targeted towards the small businesses who need advanced solutions with more power, but may not have deep technical expertise to manage it.

A small business’s resource needs increase rapidly once their website becomes a high-traffic destination.


Site speed is critically important for growing businesses as faster page loads means lower bounce rates and higher average time on the website, eventually impacting the conversion rate. Google uses web page speed as one of the factors to determine page ranking which means web page load time will tend to rank higher.

As a small business grows, they build e-commerce capabilities, upload resource-heavy data such as videos and high resolution photos, and add advanced features and functionality to their websites. All this results in slower page load times or slower processing power.

To address these growing needs, today customers have the option to move from Shared Hosting to a Virtual Private Server or a Dedicated Server. But managing or administering a server requires a high level of technical expertise, a steep learning curve, and can be time-consuming.


"GoDaddy Business Hosting is designed to simplify and enhance the customer experience by eliminating the limitations of shared hosting with the assured availability of dedicated resources," said Nikhil Arora, Vice President and Managing Director at GoDaddy India. "With Business Hosting, fast growing small businesses can now have a powerful option for hosting their demanding websites."

Easy-to-get-started, GoDaddy Business Hosting allows customers to easily upgrade their hosting portfolio with a single click along with automatic file migration – eliminating the need to uninstall and reinstall files. The platform provides small businesses with unmetered bandwidth, allowing their website to effectively handle increasing traffic without slow load times. It also allows users to monitor resource activity as they grow, with the accessibility and choice to 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 high-traffic, resource-intensive, and advanced websites.

GoDaddy Business Hosting comes in three different plan options:


Prime (1GB RAM, 60GB storage, 1 CPU, unmetered bandwidth): Perfect for fast-growing, high-traffic websites

Premium (2GB RAM, 120GB storage, 2 CPUs, unmetered bandwidth): Perfect for data-heavy websites, community forums and basic eCommerce sites.

Enterprise (4GB RAM, 240GB storage, 2 CPUs, unmetered bandwidth, free 1-year malware removal): Ideal for social media, business listings and advanced eCommerce sites.

All Business Hosting plans include Business Email (Workplace) and 1 year free SSL certificate.
