What type of hosting account do I have?

Our hosting products vary by plan and type. Here's how to check what you have, compare plans and pricing, and decide if you'd like to upgrade.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Your hosting account type is shown under Web Hosting. Or, if you've got a WordPress Hosting account, your account type is shown under Managed WordPress.
    find my account type

    Note: Did you install WordPress on a Linux or Windows Hosting account? That's still Linux or Windows Hosting, which is different from WordPress Hosting.

Hosting Account Types and Tiers

The account types are:

  • Linux Hosting with cPanel: Linux OS (operating system) on the server, with cPanel access through the account Dashboard. You install apps like WordPress yourself, using cPanel.
  • Managed WordPress Websites: We'll install WordPress for you, with access to WordPress through the account Overview.
  • Business Hosting: Linux OS, with cPanel access through the account Dashboard. Includes more dedicated resources than Linux Hosting. You install apps like WordPress yourself, using cPanel.
  • Windows Hosting with Plesk: Windows OS, with Plesk access through the account Dashboard. You install apps like WordPress yourself, using Plesk.
  • Web Hosting Linux or Web Hosting Windows: Also known as Web & Classic Hosting. No longer available (but Help articles are).

Tiers (Economy, Deluxe, Ultimate, and so on) represent the features that come with your hosting plan - the higher the tier, the better the features. For details on the tiers for your hosting, see:
