I just thought I would throw this out as a recommendation for cloud-based servers. I have recently evaluated a company called Cloudways. It is a Managed hosting platform for WordPress, Joomla, etc. It has its merits and then some. If there is a single service that GoDaddy could offer this would be it for me! Many clients want feature-rich applications, and are starting with a small traffic volume. By starting on a cloud server, memory and resource intensive applications could be installed from the beginning and the scaling then becomes one of of adding bandwidth and storage. Much easier than doing a server migration, and also offers good revenue.
Here's a quick example. My client wants a site that will accept orders from a customer that are forwarded to their dropship fulfillment partner. They also want a multi-level marketing type setup and backend. With some tweaking, this can be accomplished through WP/Woocommerce API and third-party plugins. This is a real resource hog when it comes to execution. A good cloud-based server allocation solves all of the problems, plus allows for growth.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @JMPepper, some news on this front today... http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/21/godaddy-debuts-aws-style-servers-and-apps-to-build-test-and-scale-c...
Thanks for the update! I will, in fact try them out ASAP! Any chance community members could get a discount/reward as part of the launch? Just had to ask, LOL.
