What is Cheap Web hosting, and why is it so inexpensive?GoDaddy web hosting is powered with Shared Hosting technology. Most hosting companies used shared hosting for their basic web hosting services. Because most websites don’t use many server resources, shared hosting lets our engineers put many websites on the same physical machine. This is how we can provide a reliable service at a low cost.
Does cheap web hosting mean low quality?Absolutely not! Just because the price tag is cheap doesn’t mean the service is poor. Our web hosting enjoys the same reliability, uptime, and performance as our more advanced hosting services. We still use top-of-the-line hardware to power our cheap web hosting to make sure that your website is up and running when you need it.
Will this hosting plan work for a business website?
In most cases, yes. If you have a simple website or business blog, or even several websites, you shouldn’t have problems hosting your sites on GoDaddy shared web hosting. However, there are some cases where cheap web hosting may not be right for you.
If your website needs a larger amount of resources than most, you may be better served with more advanced hosting, like Business Hosting or a Virtual Private Server. Furthermore, if you are running a large e-commerce platform or online store, you may want the extra horsepower that a VPS or dedicated server provides. But for the vast majority of businesses, GoDaddy shared web hosting will be more than enough for your website or blog.
Will the price of my web hosting always be this cheap?When you buy web hosting at the lower introductory price, you will have that hosting at that price for that purchase term. For example, if you buy one year of hosting at R 59 a month, it will cost about R 710 for that year. After that year is up, your hosting will renew at the normal price. This means that the more years you buy up front, the more you save. If you know that you’ll have your website up long term, we always suggest buying the most hosting you can get. This way you can get the most bang for your buck when it comes to cheap web hosting.
Can I upgrade later if I need more advanced hosting?
Business Hosting has the same experience you get with normal web hosting, except that it has more power behind it. With Business Hosting, you don’t need to worry about ongoing server administration like you would with a VPS.
With a VPS or Dedicated server, you get more resources, but also more control over the server itself. Keep in mind that a VPS can be much more complicated to use than your normal cheap web hosting. Managed VPS takes care of a lot of the important back-end stuff like security and monitoring, but you will still be responsible for the overall administration.
If you need the power of a server but you don’t need the additional flexibility of a server, Business Hosting may be right for you. If you need the flexibility of a VPS or Dedicated Server, but you are not able to manage the server on your own, make sure that you select the Fully-Managed option when you purchase your server. A Fully-managed server lets our experienced professionals act as your personal server administrators.
