GoDaddy Web Hosting Upgrades Increase Performance & Reliability
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
the world's largest Web hosting provider, has teamed up with Microsoft (News - Alert)
and Parallels to create a new Windows-based Web hosting offering at
GoDaddy. The improved Web hosting option gives customers better
performance, more stability and an easy-to-use interface to manage their
This evolution is part of GoDaddy's new corporate strategy that
concentrates the company on developing best-in-class products to help
small business owners and entrepreneurs grow online. GoDaddy has evolved
its Web hosting architecture to create a fast, consistent experience for
its customers, by increasing CPU and RAM (News - Alert), and lowered the density per
server. Now, by leveraging Windows Server 2012, customers will
experience world-class storage, networking and performance.
"There's an old adage in technology, when buying a new product, you can
choose two of the following three - speed, reliability and
affordability," said GoDaddy Senior Vice President and General Manager
Hosting Jeff King. "That isn't the case with our new Windows Web hosting
- with GoDaddy, you can have all three. The product takes the stability
of Windows Server 2012, adds it to our hyper-fast Web hosting
infrastructure and is easy to use thanks to Parallels Plesk Panel. This
is a big step forward, but it's only the beginning ... watch this space,
we're just getting started."
"Microsoft has introduced Cloud OS functionality designed specifically
for hosting service providers with the release of Windows Server 2012
and Windows Server 2012 R2," said Microsoft Vice President, Hosting
Service Providers, Marco Limena. "As a longtime Microsoft partner, we're
confident GoDaddy's decision to take advantage of Windows Server 2012
will satisfy customers and provde improved performance, scalability and
automation they demand."
The addition of Parallels Plesk Panel saves Web professionals time by
simplifying complex tasks such as managing databases, configuring domain
names and installing the most popular CMS applications like WordPress
and DotNetNuke (News - Alert).
"When we started talking to GoDaddy about expanding Parallels Plesk
Panel to their all new Windows Web hosting accounts, it became
abundantly clear that GoDaddy is determined to give the best possible
hosting experience to their customers," said Parallels Chief Marketing
Officer, Service Provider John Zanni. "With the Parallels Plesk Panel
simplified administrative experience, it's the perfect tool to tightly
align with GoDaddy's specific customer needs."
In the coming months, GoDaddy is expanding its hosting platform across
60 countries in 30 different languages. More global customers will be
able to manage their entire Web hosting experience in their native
language, enhancing the experience of managing a website.
