GoDaddy offers more than just domain names, GoDaddy offer a unique range of tools allowing users with the simplest of knowledge to build and manage a simplistic website using their unique user friendly control panel. GoDaddy are renowned for their TV advertising in the states, particularly during the Super Bowl ads over the past 2 years.
GoDaddy have a wide range of plans and packages and features change with each one. They do offer an unlimited plan but at a much higher price. GoDaddy developed their own control panel which is admittedly not as user friendly as cPanel, a control panel that is well renowned in the web hosting industry. This won't cause a problem though if you are new to hosting as you will not have had any experience with the control panels of our other leading web hosting providers.
Plans to sort all price ranges, but if you match their unlimited plan price to the competition they are more expensive, but they are a large brand name due to their super bowl ads and sponsorship so like all brands offer a higher premium.
Reliability And Uptime:
GoDaddy are a big company and managing that volume of customers requires precise skill, without it GoDaddy customers would be victim to slow performing servers and patches of downtime. Fortunately GoDaddy have been in the business long enough to know how to handle their customer base so their servers are usually stable and perform well.
Like so many others, GoDaddy offers 24/7 support via phone & email with a mixture of reviews on the web. GoDaddy try not to push their phone support and focus more so on their email support which is fast, honest and accurate. As expected, not all queries can be handled straight away on the phone but when they are able to help call times are minimal and you are able to speak with well spoken GoDaddy representative.
GoDaddy is a worthy competitor for web hosting companies within the top 10 that offer the same level of services but for a higher price. The only notable differences between GoDaddy and so many others on our site is the lack of unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email accounts & hosted domains and then of course the price. GoDaddy's award-winning support and many other should make up for this though and if not their 30 day money back guarantee should keep you protected.
