The Go Daddy Group, Inc., the No. 1 registrar of new domain names, has updated its web site hosting plans with more storage, more monthly data transfer and more email account flexibility while expanding its offerings to include ASP.NET support.
Go Daddy’s comprehensive yet economical hosting plans now feature the availability of ASP.NET support on all Windows hosting plans, which will enable Microsoft developers to create and run advanced applications using Microsoft Corp.’s cutting-edge technology.
According to Go Daddy, by providing seamless installation for popular open source applications such as PHPBB2, Coppermine, Mambo and Nucleus on the Linux platform, Go Daddy’s new value application support allows customers to intuitively install common open source applications to create a unique Internet presence in just minutes.
“Our hosting plans were upgraded to better accommodate our customers’ growing web sites and web site needs,” says Bob Parsons, President and Founder of Go Daddy. “Plus, we continue to offer the best in security for all our hosting customers through our world-class data center that includes 24/7 monitoring, 24/7 physical security and best-of-breed routers, firewalls and servers. Now, with our added features, our hosting plans cannot be beat in the industry.”
The three new plans — Deluxe, Business and Deluxe Business — offer between 1 GB and 10 GB of disc storage, between 15 GB to 100 GB of data transfer and email accounts for 50 to 100 names. Free set-up and instant activation are additional perks that make it quick and easy to set up a hosting plan online at www.godaddy.com. Priced to start at $9.95 per month for Deluxe, the plans are economical and affordable for web sites of all shapes and sizes.
“I chose Go Daddy because it was a local company and its rates were the most competitive,” says Troy Corder, PR Manager for Critical Public Relations, which developed www.smokefreearizona.org. “However, the addition of ASP.NET support in their Business hosting plan allowed me to not only create an attractive and useful site, but also build a forum directly into the site that is congruent with the look and feel of the site. Go Daddy was truly the one-stop-shop for all our web site needs.”
“The fact that Go Daddy web hosting now offers ASP.NET hosting demonstrates that it understands and supports its customers’ use of the Microsoft programs and applications that allow Web developers to create complex and visually appealing Web sites, yet at the valued pricing Go Daddy is known for,” says Pascal Martin, General Manager of Microsoft’s Hosting and Application Solution team.
