GoDaddy Keeps Updating Its Windows Web Hosting Services

Tuesday of this week, the world’s biggest domain registrar and web host GoDaddy announced that the company has carried out more updates to its Windows hosting services and Parallels Plesk support.

As an important part of its plans, GoDaddy SVP of hosting Jeff King indicated that the company expects more changes to the hosting platform, and makes it a powerful strategy helping small businesses succeed online.

Since GoDaddy has launched cPanel support through its revamped Linux web hosting solutions in Nov., this update action is considered as the second round to achieve the strategy of GoDaddy.

Microsoft has introduced Cloud operating system functionality designed specifically for hosting service providers with the release of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

“As a longtime Microsoft partner, we’re confident GoDaddy’s decision to take advantage of Windows Server 2012 will satisfy customers and provide improved performance, scalability and automation they demand.” Microsoft vice president and hosting service provider, Marco Limena said.

According to GoDaddy, it has leveraged Windows Server 2012 to provide customers with better storage, networking and performance. And its new Windows web hosting services would feature more CPU and RAM resources, with lower density per server.

In addition, GoDaddy Windows hosting services will also take benefits from many other industry technologies like Plesk to ensure customers an easy and convenient hosting process.

Parallels CMO, Service Provider John Zanni said: “When we started talking to GoDaddy about expanding Parallels Plesk Panel to their all new Windows web hosting accounts, it became abundantly clear that GoDaddy is determined to give the best possible hosting experience to their customers.”

At the same time, he also believed that with the Parallels Plesk Panel simplified administrative experience, it is the perfect tool to tightly align with GoDaddy’s specific customer requirements.
