Updates to WordPress Hosting

The new release of WordPress Hosting provides simplified access to the WordPress ecosystem with over 10,000 themes and 50,000 feature plugins, making it easier than ever to build a customized and professional website. GoDaddy's Action Center provides a step-by-step guide to help customers complete key tasks to ensure they're building a successful website. With a series of features from website design to analytics, customers will have all the necessary tools, with WordPress, to create a website with ease and guided support.

Also included in the WordPress Hosting updates is a new workflow and setup experience that may reduce setup steps by more than 70% versus the competition. Customers are able to immediately select industry-specific templates and, after answering a few questions, have a tailored set of tools pre-installed to help customize their site.

Through the use of user-friendly content blocks, no code is needed to get a website started, making the customization experience faster and simpler. In select plans, GoDaddy WordPress Hosting also eases the SSL process by providing the automatic deployment and certification of SSL certificates. Customers will never need to worry about keying or recertifying their SSL certificate. Additionally, these GoDaddy customers will have access to the integrated SEO tool that helps boost their website's Google rank, increasing website traffic.

WooCommerce Integration

WooCommerce is the most popular and powerful e-Commerce engine available for WordPress. With this deepened integration, GoDaddy further supports its WordPress customers by providing a more integrated set of tools for building their online presence with an online store.

WordPress customers can start their e-Commerce sites with pre-populated, customizable design themes. With the GoDaddy WordPress e-commerce Plan, customers also currently receive free access to top WooCommerce premium extensions, valued at over CAD $1,000.
