How to Upload Logo to GoDaddy
Heya, peeps! Which website builder or host are you using these days?
And do you need help uploading your image resources? Well, we’re back with a How to Upload logo guide!
We’ve featured Shopify, Etsy, and Squarespace. But today, we’re diving into GoDaddy and teaching you how to upload your logo design on the platform.
GoDaddy as a Platform
We’ve featured two top website builders, and we have another one today—GoDaddy. This platform started in 1997 under the guidance of Bob Parsons.
Formerly known as Jomax Technologies, GoDaddy became its final company name after two years. Interestingly, we have this well-known builder because Parsons had free time—he taught himself how to code in his basement in 1984.
Parsons was already a businessman, owning a tax software company named Parsons Technology. By 2011, he sold 70% of his stock; he stayed as CEO until 2014 when he sold all of it to focus on his other interests.
Today, some speculate that Google owns GoDaddy because of the relationship between the two companies. But there hasn’t been evidence of this except for their partnership in providing aid to small businesses.
Moving forward, what exactly is the difference between GoDaddy, Shopify, and Squarespace?
While Shopify and Squarespace are popular with website makers, GoDaddy focuses on domain names. The company acquired domain.com in 2011 for $2.6 billion.
That makes GoDaddy the largest domain registrar in the world! The company is also a host like Squarespace. Then, what’s the difference between a website builder and a website host?
We’ll feature that in our upcoming blogs, so stay tuned. But the gist is that you rent a space for website hosting while you create a website through builders.
For now, we’ll dive into GoDaddy’s features to help you understand how the platform works. The company is known for its website hosting services, offering the features below.
- 24/7 Customer Support
- Ease in Installing Applications
- Quick Loading Time
- Reasonable Uptime Rates (how quickly your website runs on the platform)
- Strong Shared Hosting
These are just some features to help you start a website with GoDaddy. Don’t forget to create a logo design that works well with your business name.
That’s where we help you, besides aiding you in uploading your logo to GoDaddy.
