GoDaddy Review

Editor Review

If you have watched any television within the past ten years, odds are you are familiar with Go Daddy.  When it comes to web hosting services, you will have a hard time finding one that’s more popular.  Their competitors might offer bells and whistles they don’t have, but they lack the exposure to compete with Go Daddy as far as popularity goes. 

As well as Domains they offer a variety of web hosting options, different packages and countless additional features, making them a great option for hosting a personal or small business website.  They’re a great web hosting service that is easy to setup and use, has competitive rates and valuable free extras (such as free professional plugins on their e-commerce hosting plan).

One thing to be aware of is that they do charge extra for many add-ons that are free or included with many other web hosting competitor services, such as email, which can make them quite expensive (their smallest Email package is $9.95 month, PER USER….). Email backups and Email security are also sold separately. Their web hosting packages renewal rates are also quite high (starting from $11.95 Month, and E-Commerce WordPress hosting renews at $39.95 month)

Customer Support:
Another thing to consider is customer support – there have been lots of complaints in recent years regarding poor customer support and very long waiting times for customer support, so if you are new to hosting and therefore need a lot of support and a more personalized & dedicated help to get you up-and-running then you might want to look elsewhere.

Data Centers:
GoDaddy has its own data center in Phoenix, Arizona, and it has two leased sites in the state: Scottsdale, which is also home to its headquarters, and Mesa. The others are in Los Angeles, Chicago, Ashburn, Virginia, Amsterdam (Europe) and Singapore (Asia).
