GoDaddy Updates Dedicated Server and VPS Solutions in India

GoDaddy updated its dedicated and Virtual Private Server offerings in India on Monday, repeating the move it made for the North American developer hosting market in October.

GoDaddy updated the same set of offerings in North America in October as it grows the GoDaddy Pro service for developers and web designers. Like that update, the new Indian VPS and dedicated servers are powered by CentOS, Fedora or Windows and use CPanel or Plesk control panels, and also come in the same three support levels: self-managed; managed; or fully-managed.

“Most small business owners and Web designers look for hosting services which are not only cost effective, but also effortlessly integrate with newer technologies and software. Advanced hosting solutions from GoDaddy put the customer in-control,” said GoDaddy India Vice President and Managing Director, Rajiv Sodhi. “Web developers and designers are critical to the success of GoDaddy. We are constantly working toward better understanding and meeting their evolving needs. These new products are a direct result of many conversations with our customers.”

Speaking at ResellerClub presents HostingCon India earlier in December, Octane.in managing director and cofounder Punit Modhgil said that five million people come online each month in India, and that for 95 percent the internet will be first accessed on a mobile device. This demonstrates not only the inevitability of huge growth in demand for Indian SMBs online, but also the need for their web presence to be fully responsive.

Given that a study earlier this year found only three percent of websites fully responsive, there is presumably a huge market in India for responsive design and development.

The new managed VPS solution starts at 1,079 a month Rs (approximately $17 USD), and dedicated servers start at Rs. 6,429 per month ($101.44 USD).

GoDaddy subsidiary Media Temple also relaunched its managed VPS hosting product in September.
