Go Daddy is known for being the go-to company for domain name registration and a household name in the web hosting industry. Nonetheless this was the web hosting company’s first major step in the cloud web hosting sector. Go Daddy has currently 9.4 million customers. The web hosting company manages also more than 49 million domain names. Those facts will very likely ensure high adoption from their huge demographics.
Last month, in a report about Go Daddy, made by GigaOm, claims were made about the web hosting company launching in July though it called the service “Data Center on Demand.” According to the press release, Go Daddy was “in the cloud before the term was coined” but 4GH is the next level of cloud services.
“4GH was created to help our customers succeed,” Go Daddy CEO and founder Bob Parsons said in a statement. “For example, a customer would be mentioned on Oprah or CNN and suddenly their web server had more traffic than it was designed to handle. We’d quickly move them to a dedicated server to protect them, along with our other shared hosting customers. It was like an epiphany – we needed a new platform that could react immediately. You could say, with 4GH our customers who suddenly find themselves in the limelight won’t miss their ’15 minutes of fame.'”
The plans start at $4.99 per month for an economy version. The deluxe plan is $7.99 per month or the ultimate plan is $14.99 per month.
