WooCommerce for WordPress websites

Build your online store

GoDaddy and WooCommerce have teamed up to make building an online store with WordPress easier than ever. Our WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan  for South African businesses comes with a pre-installed online store powered by WooCommerce, plus premium extensions.

Why a WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan?

Building a successful online store can be a daunting task. You need to choose the right hosting plan, the right website builder tool, and the right eCommerce platform. It’s complicated and time-consuming, not only for aspiring entrepreneurs, but even for web designers and developers.

Our new WordPress Ecommerce Hosting plan dramatically simplifies the process. It’s the easiest way to build a powerful and customised  online store. Here’s how it works.

We started with WordPress

WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder. It’s the top content management system (CMS) powering over a third of all websites worldwide. For comparison, the next largest CMS powers under 3%.

WordPress dominates, and for good reason. It’s open-source software built by tens of thousands of developers around the world. That focus and community effort has resulted in the most flexible, feature-rich website platform available.

As the world’s number one web host, powering over 5 million WordPress sites around the globe, we see WordPress used every day by tech-savvy entrepreneurs alongside web designers and developers.

We partnered with WooCommerce

WooCommerce is the #1 eCommerce solution for WordPress. It has unmatched functionality and usage, powering millions of online stores around the globe. Together, we’re delivering a hosting plan that makes building a customised online store easier than ever.

Now it’s easier to launch & manage an online store

Start customising in 70% fewer steps

It takes 4 steps to set up a typical WordPress online store:

  1. Choose a hosting plan
  2. Install WordPress
  3. Install WooCommerce
  4. Install WooCommerce extensions (add-ons that enhance the functionality of your online store, such as the ability to auto-populate shipping rates into your cart)

We’ve combined these four steps into one. It not only makes the process easier, but also lets you begin editing in 70% fewer steps than leading competitors.

Guided to success

The GoDaddy WordPress Hosting Ecommerce plan includes an “Action Centre” that helps guide you to success. It will prompt you to complete key tasks as you build your site and set setup your online presence. Some of these tasks include activating your custom domain, optimising SEO , utilising Google marketing credits, or setting up a business email address.

Free SSL, configured and automatically maintained

The Ecommerce plan includes an SSL certificate that is 100% hassle-free. Once you assign a custom domain to your site, the SSL certificate will automatically deploy and from there the maintenance of the certification is 100% automated.

WordPress updates done for you

Ensuring that your site uses the latest version of WordPress helps keep your site secure and running at its fastest.

As part of the GoDaddy WordPress Hosting experience, we will automatically complete all WordPress software updates. No work is required by you.

GoDaddy and WooCommerce bring unmatched value

You can create an amazing online store without breaking the bank. With the GoDaddy WordPress Hosting Ecommerce plan, you’ll get a range of WooCommerce extensions. These extensions allow you to add functionality to your site such as the ability to sell subscriptions, sell personalised products, and allow payment plans.

Is the WordPress Ecommerce plan right for you?

WordPress is the most-used website builder tool in the world. It offers an incredible amount of freedom and flexibility, making it the tool of choice for tech-savvy DIY entrepreneurs and website designers and developers.

But with that flexibility comes complexity.

If you’re already familiar with WordPress and WooCommerce, or are somewhat tech-savvy and willing to learn, our WordPress Ecommerce plan will be a great fit.
