"A dependable web hosting company with good customer service"

What do you like best?

GoDaddy Hosting has many different web hosting products that can help simplify and secure your website management needs. The control panel in our shared hosting plan has many tools and options for settings and configurations to very specific needs. I like having the control to add things like custom subdomains, FTP users and MySQL databases. There are many application that available and ready to be installed right within our GoDaddy account. Lastly, the customer service has usually been very helpful and generally reply or pick up calls quickly.

What do you dislike?

The page loading times can be slow during certain times of the day, or whenever another website is taking up resources on our server. The web builder doesn't have as many advanced controls as I'd want, nor does it function in the most intuitive way. It can be difficult for novice users to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think I would recommend GoDaddy Hosting for basic website hosting needs, which is what we use it for. However, I would not recommend shared hosting for mission critical needs since performance could be unpredictable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoDaddy hosts many types of web pages that we use for marketing, client presentations, forms and other business needs. It's kind of like a universal storage and display area that we can use for many reasons. The uptime has often been good and there hasn't been a ton of negative page performance issues for our standard web pages. Also, seeing all of the applications available in our GoDaddy account was a great way to explore and learn about new software that could benefit us.

"Reasonable pricing and good value for basic web hosting needs"

What do you like best?

The web hosting control panel in GoDaddy offers many useful features for managing our website settings. There are dozens of features all on one page, which allows me to find what I need quickly. We can also see our accounts capacity limits and IP address. The overall dashboard is concise and makes it easy for us to navigate where we need to go. We can create many FTP accounts so multiple users can go in and manage our web folders without being able to access unrelated parent folders. Though GoDaddy offers separate email packages, their hosting plan comes with standard hosting that is great for adding many users. We can seamlessly integrate the emails into most standard email clients for easier access.

What do you dislike?

The email accounts in our hosting plan tend to be a bit slow. It can sometimes take more than 10 minutes to receive an email. However, the standard hosting email accounts are probably not intended to be primary business accounts, but they nonetheless did not perform so well at times. Dealing with all of the tools in the hosting control panel can be overwhelming for those without much web design or hosting account management experience. Managing the account isn't very similar to working with a DIY web builder. There are more components to consider and manage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend reading through some of the instructional articles to get a clearer idea of how things work in GoDaddy before using it. There are also many videos online that can help walk you through many of the common processes. Compared to other popular hosting solutions, I think GoDaddy is a great value and is powerful enough for basic business web hosting needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can host websites and promotional pages for marketing campaigns, client feedback pages, service descriptions and just about any other web page needs. We can also store files and provide password-protected pages for client and internal use. The overall hosting plan is very versatile and has enabled us to be flexible about hosting pages and storing files. We can link to the pages and files from various outside platforms such as social media, emails and print media.

"Hosting over 40 Websites & Email Accounts and Zero Downtime"

What do you like best?

My entire business is my website and the sites I manage for my clients. If a site goes down, my business is down. In over five years and with over 40 sites under management, have never had even 1 minute of outage or downtime. GoDaddy Hosting is bullet-proof. It's the closest thing to guaranteed as you can get in the world of web hosting.

What do you dislike?

Too many upsells. When I add a new domain to my inventory, I have to click through too many extra screens offering me products I don't need or want. It's not a problem when you're only buying one URL. But when you buy them 5-10 at a time, it starts to waste a lot of time.

"GoDaddy is the BombDiggity"

What do you like best?

It's simple, easy, and helps me make decisions quickly about sites that I can use and what's available. When I needed suggestions and help, GoDaddy made it easy for me to do this and to think of (and see) other options that were available. This really helped a lot!

What do you dislike?

Not sure that I "dislike" anything. I go there to get websites and it works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GoDaddy comes with name recognition which equates to TRUST. You know you have a big-name company behind you and can help you get the site that you need and the help that you're looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wanted to use a website that I could brand and use for my business and they helped me come up with one that worked when my original idea was already being used.

"A pleasant web hosting company to work with"

What do you like best?

The main hosting control panel makes it very easy for me to check the status of many different elements in my hosting plan. I can add and edit MySQL databases for web forms and software installs, add subdomains, create new email addresses and much more. I also like that the IP address and other standard hosting information is along the left column. That makes it easy for me to access data to host domain registered outside of GoDaddy. I think the prices are also very good, which makes GoDaddy a great value web host.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy isn't the fastest when it comes to page loading times. Since GoDaddy has many customers, it's very likely that we have to share our server with many other users. There will be times when other users produce a great deal of traffic or cause usage spikes in some way or another, which can greatly slow down our website's loading times. Though the customer support can be helpful, they can also take a long time to get a hold of sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd definitely recommend GoDaddy for those that don't have very complex websites with lots of PHP, JavaScript and other dynamic code that could cause a strain on the server. The prices at GoDaddy are generally competitive and you'll get customer service that can walk you through possible issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoDaddy gives us a solid platform for hosting our websites and single web pages for event registrations and promotions. Since we don't really have the need for the absolute fastest loading times, and don't have the budget to get the absolute best hosting package elsewhere, GoDaddy is a great fit for us in terms of services and budget. People that visit our web pages via GoDaddy usually have a positive experience and rarely complain about server issues.

"Mostly reliable, does the job"

What do you like best?

Delivers on exactly what it promises. Boasts very good up-time rates although I'm skeptical of the 99.9% they claim. It's straightforward to use if you know what you are doing and their support is actually very good. Works well if you also are integrated with the domain hosting and also makes it easier if you require technical support.

What do you dislike?

I find that for their basic hosting, they really segment their performance offerings to bleed you of a few extra bucks. They are up front about it and it is easy to change at any time. I also don't love their back-end interface but it's not really a deal breaker since you get used to it and it works fine. GoDaddy also likes to nickel and dime you with little addons and bombard you with free addons that trigger renewal notices. If you manage many projects, this is annoying but typical within the industry and also true for their competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you need before getting started. if it's a basic website you are after then I recommend paying a bit more for their dedicated WordPress hosting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use two different levels for two different tings. We have an economy linux hosting with CPanel for a basic website that performed just fine. We also use their deluxe windows server hosting for larger and more critical databases and programs.

"No Downtime "

What do you like best?

Their hosting service is very outstanding. I never experience any downtime in my site. But what I like most is their constant reminder about my account. They frequently sending a summary account of my account. And also includes promos that made me purchase 3 domain names.

What do you dislike?

The lack of tutorial how to set up the domain name. Most of the tutorials I see are from other users. I hope they can maximize their products by adding tutorials. It is a good market to entice people to buy their products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a blogging site that use for marketing purposes. We put there our feedback and experience and our visitors uses it. Having a site looks very professional. Choosing GoDaddy as our hosting benefits us in our budget. It is very much cost effective

"GREAT PLATFORM!!!! "

What do you like best?

I like how reliable GoDaddy is. Getting someone on the phone who is knowledgeable and courteous is always easy with them. I've NEVER had a bad customer experience or a problem they couldn't resolve with just one call. I also like that the system is VERY easy to use and the support you get from them helps you learn new things so you can stay up-to-date with technology.

What do you dislike?

Some of their prices are a bit high. Yet, you get what you pay for. I also dislike the fact that when they upgrade their products you sometimes have to start from scratch or pay them to transfer the all the information on your site. They might be a bit more expensive than other providers, but they are defiantly worth every penny!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you call the company before you choose a product online. Not only can you get betetr prices and discounts, you can also get expert advice to choose a product that feeds your needs so you don't pay for what you don't need. They are very good at guiding you through the buying process. The seem honest and they don't try to oversell.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reliability is the absolute 1st benefit that gives you the ability to integrate an effective marketing campaign. The support I get from this vendor gives me the ability to spend less time on tech stuff and more time on other aspects of my business. I've leaned a LOT from their support team and I've been able top keep up and in many cases surpass my competition.

"If you are looking for an affordable web hosting provider."

What do you like best?

They have a wide range of prices depending on the kind of website i am creating.There is a plan which i always use called economy plan which is for only 3 dollars per month so for all those who are just starting out their career and need a portfolio this plan suits you well. Also they have customized plans for wordpress and installing any application only takes a minute whether it is wordpress, drupal or magneto.

What do you dislike?

Using godaddy hosting for large scale websites is really expensive, so it is a good option for small-to-medium websites that only use limited storage and bandwidth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a web developer i recommend godaddy hosting for those who are just starting out their career and need a simple but fast website to showoff their skills.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They have a simple and easy to use control panel which any one even not software developers can get familiar easily with it. For example when i make websites for clients, they feel comfortable using it. There is also a very useful feature which allow you to upgrade you plan resources with only one click this was very helpful when i was working on the backend of a website for a conference, and in the middle of the conference there was a huge traffic on the site so it went down, fortunately when i upgraded the bandwidth at that moment, the site took only one minute to get up again.

"Not a great experience."

What do you like best?

They took care of minor issues relatively quickly. Affordable pricing for hosting. Easy for employees and clients to use.

What do you dislike?

A lot of downtimes, errors on Godaddy's behalf, lack of good customer service. Multiple websites on our server would go down and we would spend all day on the phone with customer service being constantly transferred and hung up on. Transferring websites was very difficult with GoDaddy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to go with another company if you can.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use them to host client websites affordably and simply. We also deal with GoDaddy if that is the company that our client already used for hosting their own website. The benefits are affordable, easy to use hosting.

No frills, easy, simple website hosting! Any issues or questions, easy access to a customer rep. Customer service has always been great and the hosting affordable for our small business.

No issues or no dislikes. GoDaddy has always been easily accessible (customer service) and each rep we've come in contact with has always been knowledgeable and personal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, affordable for small business. Great customer service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No current business problems with GoDaddy Hosting. In the past, we had a situation where our hosting ended and our site was not accessible. GoDaddy troubleshooted the problem immediately.

"There are better options than GoDaddy"

What do you like best?

It's easy to set up a hosting account. Just point and click.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy overloads their servers. They hosting environment isn't capable of what is promised. If you try to run much above 60% of the host capacity it locks up and slows down. Trying to get help from support is difficult. It's clear they are reading from a script and to get any kind of meaningful information requires time and elevation of a support ticket.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used GoDaddy for a website/e-mail host and a VPS.

"The best hosting interface on the market"

What do you like best?

The cost of hosting is pretty competitive but you get better support than competitors. Also, the interface to manage hosting, set up servers, SSL, etc.. is far superior.

What do you dislike?

Price can be a little higher than competitor pricing. The support queue can be a little bit longer than other places.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for the most efficient way to get work done, this is it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GoDaddy for hosting my own and several client websites.

"Great for medium to large websites"

What do you like best?

Great for hosting several websites or a medium to large website, the price is great for larger packages. We had a VPS, and considered getting a dedicated server, but in the end we ended up separating each website on its own host. The control panel was easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if we could have multiple admins to manage the account, with different levels of access.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used GoDaddy for several years to host our websites, we had about 20+ websites in the same VPS.

The website builder isn't free so you have to pay for it and their prices are very expensive compared to other hosting providers.

What do you like best?

Simple interface, you can host many websites and I've never had any downtime or speed issues.

Nothing I dislike. But my websites are mainly low traffic (for presentation purposes), so I can't comment on the performance when it comes to high traffic sites.

"McWeb Hosting"

What do you like best?

When I learned our contract was up with GoDaddy. It's pretty much no-touch, which is a plus, but I don't trust them.

What do you dislike?

Support which wasn't very supportive. Billing that was rather non-trustworthy. GoDaddy was created for chumps who don't understand what they are doing. And I despise the advertising; sorry, but if I'm going to be a steward for our non-profit's limited resources, I don't want to invest it on something we fundamentally oppose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, although it is easy enough, I was just glad when our contract was up. I don't want to deal with GoDaddy.

What do you like best?

The pricing is great. They have a lot of products that you can bundle together. Only had one experience with service going down, so pretty reliable.

Contacting them is painful (when you really need help). They also will always try to up-sell you.
