1 Million Application Installs Through Go Daddy Hosting Connection

Most Popular Web Apps Installed in Just a Few Clicks with Go Daddy Designed Service logoSCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Imagine finding a Web application you want to use. Now, imagine having no technical experience and seeing phrases like "database permissions, run the install script, database connection details"; it can read like a foreign language. That's why Go Daddy developers created Go Daddy Hosting Connection, a service that installs the most popular online applications for any user in three clicks.

It's this "ease of use" that catapulted Go Daddy Hosting Connection past more than 1,000,000 applications installed. Now it installs more than one application every minute of every day, bringing the most popular online applications to the masses. Hosted in Go Daddy's cloud, popular free applications like WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal, as well as premium products such as Feedzilla, Pinnacle Cart and Community Server are being used by everyone, not just the technical crowd.

Rather than learning computing languages or how to "set database permissions," Go Daddy Hosting Connection users select the product they want to install, answer a few questions and click "Finish." Hosting Connection then automatically installs the application to the user's specifications.

"Our goal with Hosting Connection was to make the installation of popular online applications easy," said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. "It's working beautifully. We have installed more than 1 million applications into the hosting cloud. Our customers appreciate the ease with which they can install many popular online applications now."

In addition to installing applications, Go Daddy Hosting Connection gives users a place to provide feedback about their product experience. Potential users can review and learn from unbiased feedback of other users. If someone has issues or questions, there is a forum where Go Daddy staff or other product users help provide answers and solutions.

Hosting Connection serves Go Daddy's hosting customers using either Linux or Windows. Go Daddy hosting is backed by unparalleled 24/7 Customer Support, world-class data centers and a guaranteed uptime of 99.9%.
