Is GoDaddy a good web host?

By In Go Daddy, Web Hosting On September 1, 2014


Is GoDaddy a good web host?GoDaddy is a well known name on the internet. It is widely recognized as a domain name registrar, but it also provides web hosting services to its customers as well. GoDaddy offers 3 basic web hosting packages under the shared hosting category. The most basic package is Economy, followed by the Deluxe package which offers more disk space, and then the Ultimate package, which offers unlimited disk space.  Note GoDaddy has been running a lot of tv ads lately advertising about their basic hosting package for $1 a month. This is recommended for beginners who need to use a website builder.

Is GoDaddy Any Good?

Possibly. Their hosting is easy to navigate and configure, making it a good choice for beginners. GoDaddy provides decent hosting for small business owners, but is not very popular among web developers and designers. This is primarily due to occasional outages and downtime. GoDaddy is notorious for not having the best reliability. GoDaddy hosting also provides support for Coldfusion, a programming language that some developers use. Unfortunately, GoDaddy is buggy at times. However, they do have a number of features and services. Overall, GoDaddy is not the best web host out there, but can be a suitable choice for individuals and small business owners.

    I would go with Inmotion hosting instead. Pricing is the same and it has much better performance and support. Plus it is easier to set up. www.inmotionhosting.com

    I'm not sure if you're still looking for advice on a Hosting Provider but thought I would add my input. As a professional Web Designer & Developer, Bluehost is the provider I personally use and also recommend to my clients. I've found it to be one of the most reliable and affordable services on the market. At only $4.95 per month, you get unlimited GB's of space and transfer, domain hosting, and email accounts. You also get a free .com domain name when you sign up with them and there's a 'No Questions Asked' money back guarantee A big plus is the 24/7 support they provide, which has always been a great help. I've hosted my websites with Bluehost for 5 years now, I can happily tell you that I don't have anything negative to say about them and have received a lot of positive feedback from clients. I started out with 1 website when I first signed up to Bluehost and now have 8 websites, all hosted on the one account. Many Hosting Providers charge monthly per domain so it's great that Bluehost allows you to have unlimited domains. For more info, visit www.bluehost.com and check it out yourself. Hope that helps!

    Definitely not Godaddy Hosting. I have used them once but never again. All they care about is making money, their user interface is engineered in such a way to get customers to buy what they dont need. I can go on and on about their service, I will not recommend them to any of my clients.

    Absolutely not. Godaddy hosting is the worst. I have had so many problems with them. Very slow at times. Call tech support and they dont do anything except apologize and tell you to wait it out.

    I never liked GoDaddy. Their hosting is way over rated. They are a bad, not a good, web host.

    I see their advertising all the time for GoDaddy. its deceptive. I thought I would give it a try, but I'm switching back to www.ipage.com. I can get a better price along with better performance. It was a big mistake.

    GoDaddy is not very good in terms of web hosting. You can get a domain name from them, but not hosting. Its best to keep them separate anyways. Ive tried numerous different hosts and my favorite has always been www.inmotionhosting.com. They have exceptional performance and support. Really good for wordpress and drupal. Id recommend them instead.
