GoDaddy has been strongly targeting the small business owner for a while now – and with good reason. Small business owners need websites, and are often the largest buyer of shared hosting. However shared hosting hasn’t always been very fair to business owners, often combining them on the same servers intended for personal blogs and cat pictures. Business websites require more resources – and GoDaddy has acknowledged this need with a new offering announced earlier this week: Business Web Hosting.
Starting at $29.99 per month, GoDaddy Business Hosting includes unmetered bandwidth, and dedicated resources like RAM and storage along with allocated CPUs for resource-intensive websites. Things kick off with 1 allotted CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 60GB of storage. If you wish you can double all of those specs for just $10/mo more.
Think of this as a middle-ground between shared hosting and a full-fledged VPS. You avoid having to share your resources with everyone else as you would on a shared host, and you also avoid the need to learn linux as you would with a VPS. Check out the new business hosting plans here.
