GoDaddy.com®, a world leader in domain name registration and Web site hosting services, has doubled storage and data transfer features for Deluxe and Premium shared hosting accounts while maintaining the same low prices.
The dramatic increases mean Deluxe Hosting plans now offer 100 GB of storage with 1,000 GB of data transfer for as little as $5.59 per month. Premium Hosting plans will now provide 200 GB of storage space and 2,000 GB of data transfer for as low as $11.99 per month.
"Quality products and low prices are keys to our success at Go Daddy, always have been -- but the icing on the cake is our 24/7/365 customer support. For Web hosting, that level of support is vital," said Bob Parsons, CEO and founder of The Go Daddy Group, Inc. "We are always looking for ways to provide better value and service for our customers."
All hosting plans are available with either Windows or Linux operating systems to meet the needs of Web developers.
