One business jargon is used for WooCommerce that it is a cash cow for some agencies with correct product and marketing. Thus GoDaddy is trying to focus on the back of the most popular eCommerce platform for WordPress that is WooCommerce. In October 2019, it began with the WooCommerce hosting plan. Now more than 60 WooCommerce extensions have been added by the hosting companies to its inventory.

Rich Tabor said that “Knowing and getting expertise in eCommerce is a very important part as more and more startups and large-scale businesses are getting an online presence for their business.” At GoDaddy, Rich Tabor is the Senior Product Manager of WordPress experience. “Later last year we launched managed WooCommerce providing, unitizing various WooCommerce extension in managed WordPress environment.”

Quickly, SkyVerge has become the most successful WooCommerce and WordPress business. At the end of 2019, it was making $350,000 per month. But we do not have an idea that how well this business has worked in 2020.

All groups of SkyVerge come along with the changes made to GoDaddy. Tabor said that “we are trying to build and deliver more abilities, better setup, and how they will continue to provide an awesome experience for our customers.” The team of SkyVerge will then instruct and speedup such plans. The SkyVerge team is so talented and groundbreaking that is extremely enthusiastic about WooCommerce.

For now, it is doubtful because GoDaddy moved forward without getting any short term plans or audiences for how they will manage hosting services can utilize the features of this extension. We will just need to wait and watch for now.
