GODADDY MAKES BUILDING WORDPRESS WEBSITES EASIER WITH NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTION


Singapore, 06 December 2016 – GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY), the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, today announced WordPress Websites – the easiest way for those looking to build a WordPress website to get up and running quickly. The new offering features an exclusive WordPress Quick Start Wizard that simplifies the website creation process to get people started quickly, plus free, high-quality images for virtually any industry. It also includes professionally built premium themes, and a Visual Page Editor for easy drag and drop customization. A key benefit of using WordPress, the world’s most popular tool for creating websites, is that businesses have the ability to add new site features using the tens of thousands of free WordPress plugins that are available.
GoDaddy developed WordPress Websites for small business owners, and any looking to put their ideas online, who want a professional-looking WordPress website, but may not have experience with website development.

With the Quick Start Wizard, users can quickly get started with a choice of premium quality themes and layouts that include essential pages and features (e.g. blog, photo gallery, contact form, social integration with Facebook, Twitter and more) and access to a library of thousands of free images. From here, the Visual Page Editor allows you to edit text, drag and drop columns and rows, and insert images directly onto your page.

Faster Publishing with Scalable Solution
Small businesses are already seeing the benefits of this faster, more intuitive experience with new professionally designed themes. During the beta release, more than three times as many customers have been successful in publishing a website and the average time to publish a site has decreased by 73%.

As their business needs grow, a small business’ GoDaddy WordPress website can also expand in functionality, via the installation of free feature plugins on WordPress.org. 45,000+ feature plugins are available to extend website capabilities to include the likes of online reservations, ticket sales and discussion forums. In the past nine months alone, GoDaddy has seen website builder plugins grow in usage by 60% across millions of GoDaddy-hosted WordPress websites.

Expert Managed WordPress Hosting Support
Powered by an optimized WordPress hosting platform, technical hosting tasks are also taken care of by GoDaddy including WordPress installation, server-side site load optimization, a multi-clustered server platform so websites are ready to scale for high traffic, and secured with automated software updates and free daily site backups. Customers also have access to GoDaddy’s free 24/7 expert support.

“WordPress is a massive ecosystem, powering over 25% of the top 10 million websites worldwide. At GoDaddy over 50% of our Hosting customers use WordPress. It’s an incredibly popular platform, but it can be technically complex for business owners who want to create their own website,” said Jeff King, senior vice president of Hosting at GoDaddy. “Adding WordPress Websites to our portfolio helps provide a full range of site building solutions for our small business customers.
