"One of the fast and best DNS service provider and Web hosting platform"

What do you like best?

- I usually purchase all my company domain from GoDaddy. Mainly because I like the services and support they provided.

- One of the best things I like about GoDaddy Premium DNS is they provide name server services that have been reasonably fast and reliable.

- The user framework is very easy to understand

- Excellent security features, Premium DNS is equipped with protecting you from a DDOS attack.

- Customer service is very fast and efficient

- Lastly, if you purchase a domain from Godaddy it is easy to move your nameservers to different DNS provider.

What do you dislike?

- Even though Premium DNS there are chances you will suffer from downtown incidents.

- Even without Premium DNS, GoDaddy offers similar functionality.

- Naked domain routing(for example "https://nakeddomain.com") for S3 static website is not supported in GoDaddy. I have shifted my nameservers to Route53 for the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In most of the cases, you don't need premium DNS services.

DNS is a simple protocol, most registrars and web hosts can serve a large number of records. You will get a lot of basic tools without premium such as CNAME, MX, TXT etc If this is all you need to do, this will be sufficient for your needs.

Premium DNS services usually offer advanced features, such as unlimited domains, unlimited records, security based on application availability. These are beneficial when you're building complex/distributed/web-scale applications across multiple service providers and need to perform advanced DNS adjustments based on criteria other than simple records publishing.

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

For my startup (www.blubyn.com), I have purchase Godaddy Premium DNS service. As I told you it is reliable and fast. They provided pretty much everything you need to scale and host the website.

GoDaddy makes the process of finding, purchasing, and even setting-up you premium DNS (and much more) super streamlined and easy to use! Their support staff is excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the products you purchase can take a bit to get fully functional, but the support staff is normally able to assist and get you on your way asap!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do it! They are THE BEST!

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

We utilize a premium DNS for our company website, along with custom SSL and hosting with GoDaddy, and we love it.

"Good DNS service that has its advantages."

What do you like best?

we have seen improvements with DNS resolution latencies being less with this service compared to other DNS servers we have used. There are added options to control with the Premium DNS that are helpful to control everything in a very granular manner.

What do you dislike?

we have had outages with this service as well so it is not a 100% full proof solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

make sure to have DNS failovers as well just in case if your primary PREMIUM DNS provider has an outage.

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

Faster DNS resolution which is helpful to a better faster loading website.

Premium DNS has helped our website to load faster, secure our DNS and has helped our site to load faster for any of our visitors. This definitely helps when you're trying to book a client.

Don't have anything to say that's negative. We've been using GoDaddy services for years now and have been happy with every single one.

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

As mentioned above, our website loads faster, is more protected, and the helps a ton when potential clients are looking for you online.

"Faster & Safer - GoDaddy Delivers"

What do you like best?

The premium DNS server offered by GoDaddy increased the speed of my website significantly, and it was very simple to use and implement. It is also very affordable.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy Premium DNS definitely delivers value, but it is difficult to measure, and so the value proposition must be affirmed through the eye-test instead of hard data.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a relatively cheap solution to your site's security, this is a solid option with an easy setup.

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

GoDaddy Premium DNS made our site secure and faster. Overall, our website was noticeably improved, and we have had no security issues since it was implemented.

"Most User Friendly and Cost Effective DNS Provider "

What do you like best?

The user interface is simple, provides clear explanations and the cost is great for the services you receive. The help section is a life saver!

What do you dislike?

I’ve had a few issues with load time. It is only on occasion so not enough to make me want to switch providers
