GoDaddy is the world’s largest services platform for entrepreneurs around the globe. GoDaddy is on a mission to empower our worldwide community of 20+ million customers — and entrepreneurs everywhere — by giving them all the help and tools they need to grow online. Our vision is to radically shift the global economy toward life-fulfilling independent ventures.

As a brand, we offer more than just a platform to build your dream business website and offer everything you need to create a powerful, enduring online presence. We also provide hosting plans that will keep it online, fast, and safe. Our business email assists you in building a professional image, while our online marketing tools enable business owners to get online with an SEO-friendly website. We are a one-stop shop for getting your idea online, supported by knowledgeable, individualised support from GoDaddy Guides.

We are aware that India is predominantly a DIFM (Do-It-For-Me) market, where customers rely on "technical specialists" to develop a website for them. GoDaddy has a history of working with small company owners in local marketplaces around the nation. GoDaddy has built a strong ecosystem of knowledgeable online professionals to help us make the internet relevant for everyone. GoDaddy has developed a special collection of tools bundled under the Hub by GoDaddy Pro, targeted to the needs of web designers and developers, to further serve the nation's expanding community of web professionals.

As part of our efforts to promote more online adoption in the nation, we have launched the Online Starter Bundle, an all-in-one internet solution that offers: an India-specific domain name (.IN and.CO.IN), a starter one-page website, and a secure professional email account. The idea was to make it simple for local firms, particularly those in smaller areas, to launch online operations at an affordable cost of INR 54 per month. We also offer Websites+ Marketing, which combines a website builder with a number of marketing tools, VPS, and dedicated servers, for slightly more sophisticated businesses.

Additionally, GoDaddy's 24-hour customer service is a key advantage. For non-English speaking business owners in India's Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, GoDaddy provides customer service in Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu in addition to English. A customer is spoken to every three minutes by the company's approximately 1000 customer service employees, who offer support via chat, voice, bots, and other channels.

Recently, GoDaddy also opened its first Data Centre in India to support the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem, which is increasing the need for resources that can ensure improved web performance, better user experience, and tight security. Having your site hosted out of a data centre in India would improve the speed and performance of your sites. Here are a few more reasons why businesses should consider GoDaddy hosting:

1. Improved server response time

The performance of the website is impacted by the user's proximity to the web server. By minimising the number of networks over which data must travel, it can greatly enhance site speed and user experience. Our new and improved server hosting platform and hardware will reduce the server response time by 40%.

2. Non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid-state drives (SSDs)

Websites containing large downloads, such as films and lots of high-resolution photos, require improved wi-fi transmissions. With our server NVMe SSDs at the new India Hosting Centre, the users can enjoy a 7x throughput increase in comparison to standard SSDs.

3. 24/7 network protection

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our security team is always monitoring, stopping suspicious activities, and fending off DoS attempts. In order to protect visitor data, we additionally offer many layers of server-level security.

4. Improved SEO

An Indian IP address is given to the customers automatically if they use a local hosting company. This will boost their Google rating, make their search results more relevant for users in India, and drive free traffic to their website.

5. CPU and RAM resources

For a high level of performance, any high-traffic websites, such as e-commerce websites, require extensive resources. With the help of our provisioning procedures, users can obtain the CPU and RAM resources for better performance.

The India Data Centre will enhance customer perception of GoDaddy hosting, expand its hosting portfolio, and assist web designers and developers in building websites and applications for clients with headquarters in India. Examples of use cases include websites with a lot of traffic, e-commerce sites, resource-intensive apps, etc. Additionally, it will support economic sectors that adhere to regulatory compliance by allowing them to keep their data in Indian data centres.

GoDaddy's primary target market and hosting customers are web developers and designers. The community influences the decision-making of the business owner when choosing the best hosting provider, in addition to purchasing hosting for their own internal usage and to offer their clients. With an average improvement in server response times of up to almost 40%, the newly optimised hosting offered by the India Data Centre provides an outstanding user experience and increases traffic through better SEO.

Today, as the world is recovering from the impact of COVID-19, GoDaddy stands committed to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs everywhere, with a few product and pricing incentives, philanthropic initiatives and relevant third-party collaborations, to help them survive and thrive online.
