GoDaddy to offer affordable cloud servers for SMBs in India

Leading web hosting firm GoDaddy on Tuesday offered affordable cloud servers to small and medium businesses (SMBs) in India.

"We offer cloud servers and cloud applications to SMB customers at 50 paise per hour," said GoDaddy India Managing Director Rajiv Sodhi here.

The US-based internet domain registrar and web hosting services firm manages a whopping 63 million domain names, making it the world's largest ICANN-accredited registrar.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a non-profit organisation that is responsible for coordinating the maintenance and procedures of several databases related to the namespaces of the internet.

"The new offerings are designed to help web developers to build, test and scale cloud solutions for their SMB customers at the earliest," Sodhi told reporters here, while announcing expansion of its hosting services for small businesses in India.

The company's cloud servers also allow developers to build, test and re-provision virtual instances instantly.

"Our 'pay-as-you-go' utility billing provides flexibility and control of hourly billing and monthly limit making it affordable for customers," asserted Sodhi.

Noting that the Indian sub-continent was a sizeable market for expanding hosting products like cloud servers, the executive said developers could save time and meet their clients' expectations by using the company's hosting products that integrates domains, DNS, security and backups in one place.

Powered by kernel-based virtual machine virtualisation, the platform is built on OpenStack to ensure scalability and security for developers and technologists to leverage the platforms they know best.

The solid-state drives across the board and fast input/output ensure overall performance.

The servers are integrated with cloud applications powered by Bitnami.

The servers also allow customers to manage and maintain new and current domains and sub-domains. By featuring snapshots, users can save configurations and launch new servers with that image, instead of starting from scratch.

With 14 million customers worldwide, GoDaddy is the place people come to name their idea, build a professional website, attract customers and manage their work.

"Our mission is to give customers tools, insights and the people to transform their ideas and personal initiative into success," the company said in statement on the occasion.
