When you’re getting a business online, finding the resources and tools to figure out how best to do this can be challenging. As a part of our mission at GoDaddy to help small businesses and entrepreneurs take their ideas online, we’re very excited to announce that we have launched our GoDaddy website in Arabic.
The BETA* version is the first version of the GoDaddy Arabic website released to the public. While the website is in BETA there’s a chance for our developers to resolve any issues – known as bugs – and collect feedback from customers in order to improve the experience across the website. While we work on our Arabic website, we hope you have a great experience, yet please note that some parts of the site might not be fully working all the time.
Why are we launching an Arabic website?
According to the latest Internet World Stats data, Arabic is ranked fourth among the ten most used languages on the internet, and speaking the language of our customers is an important step in engaging and understanding their needs. Our aim is to make GoDaddy tools, solutions and content more accessible to customers around the world, to meet their specific needs and guide them on their journey online.
As a digital-first company, continuous improvement and innovation are core parts of GoDaddy’s business strategy. Across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), we’ve localized our marketing communications, and as we turn to website and products, our next focus area is improving our user experience for our Arabic speaking customers. We are eager to engage with them to get their feedback in order to continuously improve the local customer journey.
With the rise of digitalization in the Middle East, more small business owners and entrepreneurs are looking for useful tools, and our role at GoDaddy is to provide them with these tools to help get their ideas online. Coupled with Arabic speaking Guides, the BETA localization of our website now available in Arabic constitutes a meaningful expansion of our assistance and guidance to GoDaddy customers in the Middle East.
Navigating the Arabic GoDaddy website
We know that small business owners and entrepreneurs are passionate about their idea, and they want to move quickly and effectively without losing time on trying to figure out how to navigate the tools at hand. Our BETA Arabic website offers a set of localized pages to help customers navigate through products, plans and features in their own language as much as possible.
