GoDaddy Is Changing Its Image
Let me be blunt: I came into this review with the opposite of a soft spot for GoDaddy.
After all, they made their name from Super Bowl ads, bikinis, and controversy in the past. But when I looked at their services recently, despite my previous aversion to them, I was pleasantly surprised.
It appears that GoDaddy has embarked on a new brand image of late. From a marketing perspective, I think they realized that using scantily-clad women to sell domain names was only going to get them so far.
So, to their credit, GoDaddy stepped back and took a hard look in the mirror and decided to reinvent their brand.
GoDaddy Now Targets Small Businesses
These days, GoDaddy strives to be the best web host for small businesses. Gone are the celebrity spokesmodels. Instead GoDaddy’s inventing products and services priced within reach for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
More Than Just Domains
GoDaddy made its bacon selling domain registrations — and it’s still the largest domain registrar in the world, with 72 million domain names under their management.
But now GoDaddy is so much more. To quote their quarterly report, they want to “help customers kick ass in life-fulfilling independent ventures.” I’m guessing there are fewer bikinis involved in that mission.
Small Business HQ, Focused on Younger Solopreneurs
Although they’re focused on small businesses, it doesn’t mean they’re stodgy. They now skew their messages toward younger makers and solopreneurs. Their Twitter header shows a tattooed dude dabbing. They use slang like “adulting = hard.”
“Plug Life” on GoDaddy’s Twitter profile.
If you can relate to that type of brand personality, let’s get into some of the nitty-gritty on GoDaddy’s products.
GoDaddy’s Shared Hosting Plans
GoDaddy’s cheapest shared hosting plans are in line with its competitors, so there’s no shocking news there. They offer various plan tiers for hosting that range from hands-off DIY to full-service care and feeding of your site.
Bundled Business Productivity Tools
So what’s different? GoDaddy is now creating productivity tools and bundling them into packages that can help small businesses beyond simple domain names and shared web hosting.
GoDaddy’s productivity add-ons for small businesses include:
|Professional email accounts for your business|
|Accounting||An online bookkeeping app for invoicing and tracking expenses|
|Documents||Microsoft Office 365, including desktop and mobile apps|
|Marketing||Online marketing for email newsletters and ads|
|Phone||A second phone number via SmartLine|
|Cloud Storage||Online storage workspace, a cloud-based workspace for shared files and backups (akin to Dropbox)|
|Contractors||Access to experts for-hire who can do everything from graphic design to software development|
One-Stop Small Business Hub
It’s true that you can get many of these services cheaper — or even free — elsewhere. However, although there’s no particular synergy between these apps, some small businesses may appreciate the convenience of having all these products centralized on one dashboard.
GoDaddy’s GoCentral plans include extras beyond just web hosting.
GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder
GoDaddy’s business website builder is called GoCentral. I have to say, it’s pretty slick.
Without providing my credit card, I was able to put together a site in about ten minutes using the wizard to click through just five pages. I could’ve continued to tweak and add pages but the basic site was set to publish that quickly.
Just answer two questions and GoDaddy suggests templates and themes for your site.
Tons of Business Templates
One of GoDaddy’s real killer apps is that GoCentral has dozens of website templates, categorized and customized to specific products and services. Don’t mistake templates with themes. Templates provide structure for your site whereas themes are concerned with design, colors, and fonts.
Own a pet grooming service? There are templates for that. Consulting engineer? Yep, templates for that, too. Go ahead, find your business in the full list of templates.
But Limited Theme Choices
Add an Online Store in a Snap
If you buy the highest-tier GoCentral hosting plan, in addition to the site builder, you can also add e-commerce and shopping cart functionality with Online Store.
It’s just as easy to open a store as it is to use the website builder for the main part of your website.
Using WordPress Quick Start Site Builder
GoDaddy has another site builder called WordPress Quick Start.
Unlike GoCentral, you can’t try the WordPress Quick Start site builder for free. You must purchase at least 1 month of hosting to try out this builder.
No Need to Understand WordPress
Despite the credit card hurdle, Quick Start could be worth trying out anyway. The brilliance of this WordPress site builder is that you don’t need to know anything about WordPress to put together a website in minutes.
In fact, you don’t even need to know what the heck WordPress is or how it works to add plugins to your site. GoDaddy puts a layer of drag-and-drop goodness between you and the inner workings of WordPress so you can concentrate on the content and not the coding.
The Quick Start wizard transforms WordPress’ normal dashboard into an editor.
Impressively Easy to Use
As a WordPress geek myself, I was impressed with the ease of Quick Start. I’m pretty sure that even retired snowbirds in Florida could get a WordPress website up in a snap.
GoDaddy’s Other Hosting Plans
In addition to the two site builders, GoDaddy has a wide-ranging suite of other hosting plans, including Virtual Private Servers (VPSs), and Dedicated servers. So many plans, in fact, that it can be hard to find and compare them since they’re in disparate parts of their site. I don’t know if this confusion is intentional or if it’s simply chaos resulting from a recent redesign.
Except for WordPress-only hosting, GoDaddy’s shared hosting plans give you access to Installatron’s library of 1-click installs.
GoDaddy’s library of 1-click installs comes via Installatron.
GoDaddy’s Plan Features
Most web hosts offer plans that are clones of their competition’s products. I won’t bore you with those specs. Instead, I’ll focus on GoDaddy’s more unique offerings:
|Visitors vs. Bandwidth||GoDaddy’s pricing is tiered by number of visitors rather than bandwidth transferred, which is pretty nifty if you’re first starting out since your traffic will initially be small.|
|Control Panels||Control panels are cPanel for all shared hosting (as well as Linux servers) and Plesk for Windows servers.|
|Email Addresses||With your hosting plan you can create email addresses via your cPanel or Plesk, which you can configure to receive via Microsoft, Apple, Gmail, or any other email program. You don’t need to add on Professional Email (that plan is for domains not hosted at GoDaddy).|
|Disk Space||Disk space is generous but not unlimited.|
|Backup & Restore||Shared hosting comes with daily backups and 1-click restore but non-shared plans may require SiteBackup as an add-on.|
|SSL Certificates||Free SSL certificates are offered only on top-tier plans.|
|Customer Support||Every plan gets “premium” level support, regardless of tier or pricing. Everyone gets free 24/7/365 email, chat, and phone support in their own language.|
Great Support Staff, But Documentation? Not So Much
GoDaddy has gone all-out in the support personnel department. They employ over 4,700 customer support reps who are hired in the country they’ll be supporting.
That means you’ll talk to someone who speaks your language (27 languages) and won’t talk down to you or over your head.
You can contact Support whenever you like over the phone or via online chat. The best part is that GoDaddy’s level of support isn’t contingent on the price of your plan.
My experiences with the in-person aspect of their support were outstanding. When I chatted with support personnel, I received helpful answers to my questions with limited wait times, from reps who were genuinely interested in understanding me.
The chat help reps were awesome.
On the other hand, self-help is a bit difficult to accomplish.
It seems so basic, but it’s frustrating when it’s not available. One simple example: there’s no site search box at the top of GoDaddy’s homepage. (The search box you see is for finding domain names.) You’re forced to click around to stumble upon their plans, often not knowing how you got to a specific page.
Searching for Help Is Frustrating
While I was researching this article, I tried searching documents for help both as a non-customer and as a logged-in customer, most of the time with little success. Eventually, I had to resort to Google site:searches or clicking the support “chat” button. The Community forums were so garbled, I gave up on them.

Uptime Guarantee and How to Request It
GoDaddy has a 99.9% uptime guarantee but they determine the percentages of uptime themselves. Assuming you somehow find out about a lack of uptime, you must contact them yourself to cash in on the guarantee.
Even if you are able to jump through those hoops, your reward is merely a 5% credit on your next month of hosting, which on low-tier plans could be a whopping 20-cents.
The Mystery of GoDaddy’s Infrastructure
GoDaddy is pretty mum about its infrastructure. I was able to find out that it uses 37,000+ servers globally spread across at least nine datacenters, but they don’t publish information about their network setup.
You can find the generalized, unbranded specs for hosting servers on some non-shared hosting price pages. The beefiest specs I could find are on the dedicated hosting servers.
You can choose between Linux and Windows servers, as you please for VPS and dedicated hosting plans. You’ll get a Linux server on shared or WordPress hosting.

No Content Delivery Network (CDN)
I was perplexed to discover that GoDaddy doesn’t use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to speed up its network and I couldn’t find a way to install one in the help documentation.
I assume that on VPS or Dedicated server plans that you can install CloudFlare yourself (or another CDN), but shared hosting is left out in the cold, CDN-wise.
How GoDaddy Compares to Bluehost
Of course, other hosting companies may be in contention for your small business wallet. As web hosts go, Bluehost is one of the more popular choices, but GoDaddy stacks up against them pretty well in terms of product offerings.
- GoDaddy and Bluehost plans prices are fairly equivalent, even at promotional price points.
- However, Bluehost offers SiteLock CDN and a free SSL certificate on all of their plans whereas GoDaddy doesn’t have a CDN on most of their plans and an SSL certificate is free only on the top tier plans.
- While GoDaddy has two site builders, Bluehost offers none.
Room for Improvement
GoDaddy’s web hosting lineup has some great features, but its website has room for improvement in a couple of areas:
- They could stand better organization of the GoDaddy site, including adding a search box to make it easier to find information about the plans and features you’re interested in.
- The self-help knowledgebase and the community forums need to be reindexed so that it’s easier to find the help you need.

Last 6 Months Uptime
Over the last 6 months to Nov 2017, as measured by Pingdom:
- Downtime 22 minutes
- 6 Outages
- Uptime 99.99%

Unique Selling Propositions
- GoDaddy specializes in productivity needs for small businesses.
- It’s the largest domain registrar in the world.
Migration for managed WordPress sites is extremely easy and can be done with one click from the control panel.
For other plans, it takes only a few more clicks. For the Basic and Deluxe WordPress plans, you can migrate 1 site. For Ultimate, 2 sites. For Pro, you can choose 1-25 sites.
Migrating out is simple, explained well, and you always have access to your data.
Quality of Support Material On Website
I found it extremely difficult to find what I needed sometimes, even with Google Site search. Nine times out of ten I had to resort to text-chatting with a support rep.
However, once you find the page you’re looking for, the steps are extremely clear, easy to follow, and backed up with relevant images. I was pleased to see that none of the help pages I found were outdated.
The “Community” section isn’t moderated by GoDaddy support people and a lot of questions go unanswered or poorly-addressed.
I’d rate their support material as “fair” since their info is good but it’s difficult to find what you need.
cPanel is GoDaddy’s control panel for Linux and their Windows servers use Plesk.
I tested cPanel. Although, it takes a few clicks to find the control panel because they add an intermediary page between your “products” dashboard and your website dashboard before you can get to either cPanel or Plesk.
The dashboard layout is very airy and touch-friendly. Everything’s clearly marked and categorized, with a hint at where to start first.
There’s a datacenter located near its headquarters in Phoenix, with two additional Arizona centers and others in Los Angeles, Chicago, Ashburn, Virginia, Amsterdam, and Singapore.
Money-Back Guarantee or Trial Period
For shared hosting, you can get your money back within 30 days of payment if you’re unsatisfied. You can also downgrade your plan if you like. All plans are free to try for the first 30 days. You can request your money back by calling customer support.
Important note: unlike many hosts, you can’t try out GoDaddy’s WordPress plans without providing a credit card. You can, however, try out its GoCentral site builder without a credit card.
99.9% uptime guarantee: “If we fail to maintain this Service Uptime Guarantee in a particular month (as solely determined by us), you may contact us and request a credit of 5% of your monthly hosting fee for that month.”
Lowest Price for Shared Hosting or Other Cheapest Plan
Their cheapest WordPress or GoCentral shared hosting plan is $7.99/mon but they’ll give you a 50% discount for your first year, making it about $3.99/mon for that initial term. When you renew for your 2nd year, the cost goes back up to $7.99. There’s no special link or coupon to get the 50%/mon discount.
You can also try out the GoCentral site builder for free (no credit card required) for 30 days.
For managed WordPress plans, backup is included for no extra charge. You can initiate a backup or restore from your control panel. For other plans, you can add 1-click restore backups for $1.99/mon.
Site Builder Included?
Two types of site builders are available, which are dependent upon which plans you choose. You can’t add on a site builder to a non-site-builder hosting plan later.
- The WordPress managed hosting site builder, called Quick Start, will help you set up a WP site almost instantly. (As quickly as I’ve ever seen.) You can’t try Quick Start without paying for at least one month. The cheapest WordPress Managed Hosting plan starts at $3.99/mon (50% off of the $7.99/mon).
- GoDaddy’s other site builder is called GoCentral, which you can try for free. If you decide you like it after 30 days, the GoCentral plan costs $115.06/yr (approximately $9.59/mon).
The only GoDaddy products that offer PCI compliance are Online Store and Quick Shopping Cart.

Pros and Cons
Like all hosting companies, GoDaddy has its good and bad points. Here are the major ones to keep in mind while you decide which hosting company to choose.
- GoDaddy provides a lot of tools that can help small businesses be more productive. You can get online in minutes with dozens of templates you can choose based on your product or service.
- Attractive pricing, especially on the site builder plans (GoCentral and Managed WordPress).
- 24/7/365 phone & chat support in dozens of languages.
- Plan descriptions are muddled. It’s hard to find and compare all the different plans GoDaddy offers. Also, you can’t add on functionality if you pick the wrong plan (eg, you can’t get a site builder on non-site-builder plans).
- Although in-person help is responsive and customized, the online help area is pretty chaotic. It can be difficult and time-consuming to find what you need in the help sections, even if you know what you’re looking for and even using Google site search.
- Adding on à la carte products can get pricey (eg, SiteBackups, Office Email), especially if you have more than five employees.
- GoDaddy doesn’t offer a CDN on shared hosting packages.
Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about GoDaddy.
Question: Is GoDaddy’s “shared hosting” the same as “WordPress hosting?”
Answer: No, shared hosting isn’t the same as WordPress hosting. Shared hosting gives you a bare-bones server to do with what you will. WordPress hosting comes with the Quick Start wizard and you can only use WordPress with it.
Question: Can I get access to a site builder or wizard on any plan?
Answer: No. You can’t add-on a site builder. To get a site builder, you must sign up for the GoCentral plan or the WordPress plan.
Question: What’s the difference between the WordPress Quick Start site builder and the GoCentral site builder?
Answer: GoCentral lets you add on an online store and any other 1-click installable app. Quick Start is only for WordPress and its plugins.
Question: Where can I find the 1-click install options?
Answer: GoDaddy’s 1-click provider is Installatron.
Question: How many email addresses do I get on the cheapest hosting plans?
Answer: As many as you want, for free.
Question: How hard is it to add e-commerce to my site? Do I need to decide before I choose a plan?
Answer: Adding an online store is easy, but you do need to pick a plan that includes it.
Question: Do Any Big Brands Use GoDaddy?
Answer: I couldn’t find any big-name businesses advertised as using GoDaddy. That includes in their quarterly reports (pdf).

GoDaddy is great for:
- Small businesses or entrepreneurs who want an easy way to get a website up quickly at a good initial price. As your business grows, you can expand the services you get from GoDaddy, including adding an online store.
- GoDaddy is also good for business owners who aren’t super tech-savvy (or don’t have the time to fool with it) and are looking for an easy-to-use website builder. It also offers other products small businesses can use like Office 365 and online bookkeeping.
- GoDaddy probably isn’t for you if you need enterprise solutions, extensive development tools, or if you don’t know how to use Google site:search to find DIY help.
