Understanding GoDaddy Hosting plans



I have some domains acquired with GoDaddy and i want to now host a web server with FTP allowed for one of them. I don't need a website, so I checked out GoDaddy's options for web hosting and it has a plan just for hosting but I need to make sure of two things:

1) Can I enable FTP access with this plan?

2) Is it possible to use PHP in the server? I need to run an application that uses PHP.

Re: Understanding GoDaddy Hosting plans

I need a help too... I have appointed a developer to build my website. I have taken a hosting pack & a domain. How do I handover these to my developer? How can I give him an access?

Hi @SudhirP,


Welcome to the Community!

When you setup your hosting plan, you can create an additional unique FTP user name for your developer. Then you won't need to provide them access to your account, but they can just use the FTP access to limit them to your website creation. After the website has been built, you can remove that FTP access at any time to protect your website.

Hi David,


Sorry for the lack of response. I was looking into the Economy plan of web hosting. But if I need to step up the plan to do it, I might consider it too.
