I just saw this this morning as well. Basically, all the complaints about what GoDaddy's WordPress hosting DID NOT offer... this new product covers it all. They are a little late to the game with things like PHP 7 and free SSLs, but their resources and price point could definitely turn some heads in the hosting world.

Looks interesting with some nice features. A very small disconnect is the blurb on the regular WordPress hosting page about the Pro hosting:

www.godaddy.com/hosting/wordpress-hosting

The pricing table reads from left to right -- Basic 1 website, Deluxe 1 website, Ultimate 2 website, Pro multiple sites starting at $9.99. The $9.99 pro is for 1 site.

You've never heard this from me before, but ...

Wow. Finally impressed. Might even consider actually using Godaddy now.

Don't faint because I said that.

Thanks Donna, I appreciate acknowledging the effort that went into creating this. If you do decide to partner with GD, you will get a partner who is willing to work with you with their whole heart. It doesn't mean you won't encounter glitches here and there, but the team I am working with right now is fanatically driven by passion for customer experience and WordPress and that will ensure that everything will work out.

Glitches happen. No host is perfect. But this news goes a long way towards changing my attitude. I have to figure out the costs to see if it works out for me, but if so, I may jump in.
