my honest review of godaddy 2016Post Updated 10 April 2019. Go daddy is one of the  biggest domain registrars in the US . Inspite of being quite well known  and being one of the most popular advertisers on the Superbowl “Americas premier sporting event” they have  taken a beating to their online reputation on various websites and forums. It is surprising that they still offer very competitive deals when it comes  to website hosting  and  domain names.

I was surprised when I did a recent search and found the cheapest price for ssl security(https) with godaddy. They are definitely good at price beating their competitors.

You search online and you can get many bad reviews about Godaddy. I got my first  godaddy hosting account  and domain  with great nervousness almost 5+ years ago, in spite of reading all the online bad reviews about Godaddy.com.

I purchased webhosting at that time from them, just because they were offering a $1 a month  hosting offer, which to me which sounded really cheap. I just said to myself  – what the heck and signed up – it wasnt much less to lose at that price. I id not regret it and currently hold 15 + domains with them.

I have collected and listed some awesome current gdaddy deals just below and they are some here on this website as well.

This hosting that I purchased was most certainly  a very cheap price at that time. If I remember right, it was $1 a month hosting, and it was definite cheap  compared to the other website-hosting deals going around at that time of roughly $5 to $6 a month.

So I just grabbed it and set up a few niche blogs and also an affiliate site to promote products online. If you already have GoDaddy’s hosting service, then you can use that for your WordPress site

The niche site did well and I also made money from the affiliate website and so my initial investment was already covered ten times in that year.

So was godaddy worth it ?

Well  as I was just starting new websites, I was not  really tracking stuff  like if they were 100% online all the time  or then how slow my website was loading,  but as my websites  was new and   did not use much  bandwidth and  resources everything was good and chugging along fine. They just worked well with my wordpress website.

In fact go daddy at that time already had a 99% uptime guarantee, so I never had to worry.

A little later – I also purchased Hostgator and Dreamhost hosting plans for more projects and so I got  to test them out as well.  I had issues with my accounts getting hacked  and slow servers speed and downtime in initial years with one of them ( not godaddy).

I got emails from them, telling me that my website was hogging their server resources , when I didn’t even have  like 100 hits a days , while my godaddy account was fine  and no emails from them , so from that point of view surely GDaddy was a winner for me .

I’m still with hostgator and blue host and they are doing fine. As far as the other host goes , they have stopped sending me resources hogging emails, or your account will be limited etc.. So that’s definitely  good sign of  the hosting industry  emerging with their security.

The best thing about godaddy that I like – is that they have local 1 dollar a month hosting wordpressAmerican support that you can pick up the phone and speak too anytime.

I always get to speak to a person pretty soon without staying too long on the line even though i am calling from overseas into US.

The few times that I called support, I was actually  attended to by knowledgeable staff  who managed to sort out the problem I had.

 

If you are looking  to get a website  or blog started and you are on a low spend budget, until you find your bearings – Do try one of  go daddy’s cheap deals above – they will surely do the job and at a budget.

Here is a tutorial Video for go daddy blog install by wordpress australia

These are the basic pointers I know about the GoDaddy Web Hosting:

  • GoDaddy is the world’s largest domain name register and cloud platform dedicated especially to small and independent ventures.
  • GoDaddy gives unlimited bandwidth (bandwidth is basically how many people can visit your site at once).
  • GoDaddy offers quality WordPress AutoInstall.
  • GoDaddy has great security and restrictive policies that help to keep out all the scams and the attacks. They have acquired Sucurri and SiteLock companies in the web security world to protect their customer’s web privacy.
  • GoDaddy offers you 24X7 phone supports which are not common among hosting companies.

While both Bluehost and GoDaddy come with 1-click WordPress installs – Bluehost comes with the easiest one. GoDaddy provides Premium DNS and beats BlueHost on free ad money
