What types of websites need Business Hosting?

eCommerce

Your fast track to more sales.

It’s true, 57% of users will leave your site if it takes longer than three seconds to load. That’s a lot of lost revenue. And with Business Hosting, your pages load faster than shared hosting, that means more of your visitors will convert to being customers.

High-Traffic

Your site won’t crash if you become an overnight sensation.

Even if you’re website isn’t selling products or displaying media, a rush of visitors can overload an average shared hosting plan. So, Business Hosting has the resources and support to make sure that, say, being a trending topic on a Reddit or a Twitter is time to celebrate – not panic.

Resource Intensive

Power to the people. Your people.

If you’re hosting videos, photos or downloads, you’ll feel well accommodated with Business Hosting on your side. And unlike shared hosting, you won’t have to share resources like CPU or RAM, so you get every resource of power – all to yourself, and your peeps.

Built to drive the apps you know and love. Or will love.

And with over 100 apps to choose from, the perfect app for your business may be waiting for you.

Frequently asked questions

What is Business Hosting?

If your website is growing, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll need more power than shared hosting can provide. Business Hosting delivers the same power and performance as a Virtual Private Server (VPS) without the pain of server administration. You get all the RAM, CPU and bandwidth you need without having to hire an IT pro to manage your server.

What are the benefits of Business Hosting?

Simplicity: You get the same easy-to-use cPanel control panel you’re using with our shared hosting. You don’t need server administration skills to manage Business Hosting.

Dedicated Resources: The memory and disk space that come with your Business Hosting are dedicated so they’ll always be available for your use.

Complete Isolation: Because you have dedicated resources, your website will never be affected by other websites on your server.

I have shared web hosting. How hard is it to upgrade to Business Hosting?

If you already use GoDaddy's web hosting, you can upgrade to Business Hosting with a single click. Your files would be automatically migrated and you don’t need to uninstall and reinstall any files. If you have DNS set up with GoDaddy, you won't need to update your DNS manually.

How many websites/domains does Business Hosting support?

You can host an unlimited number of websites on Business Hosting.

Which default email service comes with it?

Business Hosting comes with default cPanel email where you can create unlimited accounts for free. Or you can use the one-user Office 365 plan that’s included free for the first year.

What if I outgrow my Business Hosting plan?

Simple. Upgrading to a more powerful plan is a click away.

How do I activate my one-year SSL and Office 365?

Your one-year Office 365 and SSL certificate credit can be activated from your GoDaddy account. If you need help migrating your existing email to office 365 or want to add more email IDs, call the Email Services team at (480) 463-8835.

What version of PHP and MySQL do I get with Business Hosting?

Business Hosting comes with PHP 7.2, 7.1, 7.0, 5.6, 5.5 and MySQL 5.6, the latest versions. This is a key requirement for Magento, CMS-Drupal and OpenCart websites and anyone running multiple WordPress websites.
