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.
Below I have put together some of their latest deals

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 American 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.

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
