GoDaddy Offers cPanel & CloudLinux in Web Hosting Overhaul
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Nov. 20, 2013) – GoDaddy, the world’s largest Web hosting provider, has revamped its Linux Web hosting lineup, with the addition of cPanel & WHM, the popular Web hosting management software. In addition, customers are also benefitting from a new Web hosting architecture that provides a fast and reliable experience and new Web hosting plans, which enable customers to find a solution that meets their specific needs.
“After studying the market and our customer needs, we went to work with cPanel and CloudLinux to create an optimized solution that provides a market-leading customer experience,” said GoDaddy Product Manager Web Hosting Ben Gabler. “GoDaddy is focused on bringing the best and most reliable services to our customers around the world.”
cPanel enables users to quickly and easily manage a number of potentially-complicated items on a Web hosting account, including managing MySQL databases, adding domain names, installing applications, tracking stats and setting up Cron jobs. For example, using automated installs powered by Installatron, customers can have a full-blown WordPress website in a matter of minutes, without coding or walking through a potentially complicated install process.
“When GoDaddy talked to us about adding cPanel to their main Linux Web hosting line, we admired their passion for helping customers and couldn’t wait to get started,” said cPanel Vice President of Operations Aaron Phillips. “The new team at GoDaddy is hyper focused on figuring out how to create the best possible customer experience, whether it’s for a Web pro or a small business owner. GoDaddy is willing to do whatever it takes to get this right, and we share their excitement to help grow the small business market.”
GoDaddy Linux Web hosting runs on CloudLinux and offers the flexibility and ease-of-use customers expect. Additionally, the Web hosting architecture has increased the usage of CPU and RAM in a low densification environment – giving users additional resources that cause pages to load faster and more consistently.
“GoDaddy’s scale for Linux Web hosting is unmatched in the industry and they have innovated based on customer needs to increase their speed and reliability,” said CloudLinux CEO Igor Seletskiy.
“GoDaddy is going global, in the coming months, we are providing hosting across 60 countries in 30 different languages,” said GoDaddy Senior Vice President and General Manager Hosting Jeff King. “cPanel is helping provide a universal experience while CloudLinux is providing a solid foundation. This isn’t the finish line … we’re just getting started.”
GoDaddy now serves more than 12 million paying customers worldwide and is the largest Web hosting and domain name registrar on the planet. GoDaddy leverages its award-winning talent and personalized approach to help small business owners create their digital identity, build websites and grow online.
