What is the Internet of Things? It’s the increasing number of items we own that connect to the internet to provide us with better service and data tracking. There are smart phones of course, but also smart fridges, coffee makers, and heating systems. Today’s review roundup will feature 5 wearable IoT devices, as well as GoDaddy with focus on their web hosting and domain name registration services.
GoDaddy, the World’s Largest Domain Registrar
For a long time GoDaddy’s claim to fame has been just that: they have more domains registered with them than any other company in the world. That still holds true, although the discontinuation of coupons that are valid specifically for domain renewals after the company’s IPO a few years ago has slowed down their popularity a little. Now, they do still have some general purpose promo codes that will work for domain renewals, and if you have a lot of domains registered with them then you are eligible for the discount domain club. They also have decently priced basic web hosting packages, and if they are also your domain registrar then it’s very easy to keep everything in one place.
And now onto our wearable IoT items, these are our top 5 from this week.
1.UP3 Health Tracker
