Our new WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan comes with a pre-installed online store powered by WooCommerce, plus a variety of premium extensions including Advanced NotificationsSubscriptionsWooCommerce Brands and more.

GoDaddy and WooCommerce have teamed up to make building an online store with WordPress easier than ever.

Why a WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan?

Building a successful online store can be a daunting task. You need to choose the right hosting plan, the right website builder tool, and the right eCommerce platform.

It’s complicated and time-consuming, not only for aspiring entrepreneurs, but even for web designers and developers.

Our new WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan dramatically simplifies the process. We believe it’s the easiest way to build a powerful and highly-customized online store.

Here’s how it works.

We started with WordPress

WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder. It’s the top content management system (CMS) powering over a third of all websites worldwide. For comparison, the next largest CMS powers under 3%.

WordPress dominates, and for good reason. It’s open-source software built by tens of thousands of developers around the world. That focus and community effort has resulted in the most flexible, feature-rich website platform available.

As the world’s #1 web host, powering over 5 million WordPress sites around the globe, we see WordPress used every day by tech-savvy everyday entrepreneurs alongside web designers and developers.

We partnered with WooCommerce

WooCommerce is the #1 eCommerce solution for WordPress. It has unmatched functionality and usage, powering millions of online stores around the globe.

On October 22, 2019, GoDaddy and Automattic (the parent company of WooCommerce) announced that we joined forces in a formal partnership.

Together, we’re delivering an exciting new hosting plan that makes building a highly-customized online store easier than ever.

Now it’s easier to launch & manage an online store

Start customizing in 70% fewer steps

It takes 4 steps to set up a typical WordPress Ecommerce online store:

  1. Choose a hosting plan
  2. Install WordPress
  3. Install WooCommerce
  4. Install WooCommerce extensions (add-ons that enhance the functionality of your online store, such as the ability to auto-populate shipping rates into your cart)

We’ve combined these 4 steps into 1. It not only makes the process easier, but also lets you begin editing in 70% fewer steps than leading competitors.

Guided to success

The GoDaddy WordPress Hosting Ecommerce plan includes an “Action Center” that helps guide you to success. It will prompt you to complete key tasks as you build your site and set setup your online presence. Some of these tasks include activating your custom domain, optimizing SEO, utilizing Google marketing credits, or setting up a business email address.

Free SSL, configured and automatically maintained

The Ecommerce plan includes an SSL certificate that is 100% hassle-free. Once you assign a custom domain to your site, the SSL certificate will automatically deploy and from there the maintenance of the certification is 100% automated.

WordPress updates done for you

Ensuring that your site uses the latest version of WordPress helps keep your site secure and running its fastest.

As part of the GoDaddy WordPress Hosting experience, we will automatically complete all WordPress software updates. No work is required by you.

GoDaddy and WooCommerce bring unmatched value

You can create an amazing online store without breaking the bank. With the GoDaddy WordPress Hosting Ecommerce plan, you’ll get free access to over a $1,000 of WooCommerce extensions.

These extensions allow you to add unique functionality to your site such as the ability to sell subscriptions, sell personalized products, allow payment plans, and offer rewards.

Is the new WordPress Ecommerce plan right for you?

WordPress is the most-used website builder tool in the world. It offers an incredible amount of freedom and flexibility, making it the tool of choice for tech-savvy DIY entrepreneurs and website designers and developers.

But with that flexibility comes complexity.

If you’re already familiar with WordPress and WooCommerce, or are somewhat tech-savvy and willing to learn, our new WordPress Ecommerce plan will be a great fit.
