Microsoft and GoDaddy today announced Get Online Today, a suite of services and tech tools meant to help small- and medium-sized businesses launch an Internet presence. The offer starts at $1 per month for the first year, but it costs $11.99 per month after that.

Get Online Today customers will receive the following:

  • A custom domain name.
  • A subscription to Website Builder from GoDaddy, including hosting for the business’ website on their custom domain name.
  • Microsoft Office 365 from GoDaddy, connecting professional email, contacts and calendar to their custom domain name.
  • $50 credit for Bing Ads, to help business owners find new customers.
  • 24/7 Phone Support from GoDaddy.

The duo says the target market is sole-proprietors and businesses with just a few employees, since they have limited financial resources and time to manage their online presence. While business owners are certainly getting a lot of what they need to start, maintain, and grow a Web presence, it remains to be seen if they’re willing to pay a monthly subscription fee for such an offering.
