GoDaddy, arguably one of the world leaders in domain name registration and Web hosting, recently reached another milestone where WordPress hosting is concerned. The company developed an automated installation platform known as Hosting Connection which helps customers quickly and easily install the WordPress content management system on their websites. GoDaddy recently announced the platform has now installed 2 million WordPress systems.
The milestone is important in light of the fact that WordPress is the most used content management system in the world. Among its many attractive features is the fact that users don’t need to be Web experts to use it. The system also doesn’t require any special software to use. It only requires users to login to the WordPress administration area using a standard web browser. GoDaddy is taking advantage of the ease of use WordPress offers in getting more customers to get online.
“GoDaddy created Hosting Connection in response to customers who were looking to quickly and easily install Web applications,” said Scott Brown, GoDaddy Senior Director of Hosting. “The goal of Hosting Connection is to make the installation of WordPress easier and faster for our customers and judging by the 2 million installs, we think it’s a solution customers wanted.”
GoDaddy customers who want to avail themselves of more tools beyond WordPress will find the company hosts more than 50 applications that can be installed with the click of a button. Users can login to the Hosting Connection application installer and browse through the listings to find what they’re looking for. Those who don’t want to pay the extra price for the Hosting Connection platform can still install WordPress and any of the other applications manually through their control panels.
