The Pros and Cons of Godaddy
GoDaddy is a web hosting and domain registrar service website that offers a lot of services from registering a .com domain to hosting and running scripts online. The company serves a big chunk of the Internet, currently holding more than 45 million domain names and rising literally every minute. This article will cover a quick review on the pros and cons on my experience with GoDaddy so far.
Let’s start with the negative for a change – GoDaddy offers a wide variety of features however not everything comes as a bundle. Some features come quite limited – the shopping cart feature for example. If you want more items to be stored in your cart or want your emails to be unlimited, you have to pay extra fees which may sometimes come as a shock for small business users who have limited budget.
GoDaddy prides itself with very competitive rates compared to most websites. If you want a domain name, the process is pretty straightforward and you can even apply vouchers to get some crazy discounts at checkout. The support and help systems are also helpful – their support section lists a variety of topics for managing your website and their email support gets back quickly (typically 24-48 hours).
In a nutshell, GoDaddy isn’t the all-around cheapest solution if you want all services however they can offer a complete solution for hosting everything you need from the domain name down to the SQL databases.
