With deeper internet penetration and a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem, there is an increasing need for resources that can ensure improved web performance, better user experience, and tight security. For this reason, GoDaddy is opening its first Data Centre in India on 27 June 2022.

Heavy traffic sites like e-commerce and video-based websites need better resources and technology for fast speed and an uninterrupted user experience.

Having your site hosted out of a data centre in India would improve the speed and performance of your sites.

Why businesses and professionals need India Hosting Centre

If you are an India-based business catering to customers in India, the distance between the server and the system loading the website makes a difference.

The loading time of more than three seconds may get you a high bounce rate and impact search rankings adversely.

This is only one of the many advantages of having your website hosted on the servers in your country. Here are a few more reasons why businesses should consider GoDaddy hosting:

  • Improved Server Response Time: The proximity of the website visitor to the web server impacts the site performance. Since data passes through fewer networks, it can significantly improve the site performance and user experience by reducing the service response time.
  • Improved SEO (search engine optimization): Having a local hosting provider automatically gets you an Indian IP address. This will increase your search relevancy for India-based search results, improve your Google ranking, and get free traffic to your site.
  • Privacy and security: The location of your servers has a direct impact on your data and business. The legal system of your server’s country governs your website, database, and emails. The legal systems of a few countries state that they can legally access any data, block you from your data, and monitor your communications if your activity is deemed suspicious. Therefore, it is safer to store your data in your country.

CPU and RAM resources

Your high-traffic sites like e-commerce websites need more resources for a high level of performance. Through our provisioning process, you get the CPU and RAM resources for performance you can count on.

Substantial I/O resources

Poor I/O performance may lead to problems like:

Get faster queries of large databases and help prevent freezing or slow loading of websites that have heavy scripts such as WordPress with resource-intensive plug-ins like WooCommerce, Elementor and Jetpack. GoDaddy provides up to 80MB/s of I/O.

Need for business hosting if already using shared hosting

Shared hosting works well if you’re new and growing. However, as you grow, you need resources.

The low-cost shared hosting comes with its con of limited resources.

From RAM and CPU to bandwidth, you get everything you need to manage performance-critical sites without having to face the challenges of server maintenance. You get guaranteed resources for your websites — which means the memory and disk space in Business Hosting will always be available for your use.

And unlike shared hosting, in business hosting, your website is not affected by other websites on the server.
