ICANN Accredited Domain Registrar | Hosting Provider
We will give a a brief overview of GoDaddy and then offer a number rating. Our number ratings will be from 1 to 10 with 1 being the poorest rating and 10 being the best rating.
I’m pretty sure most people are familiar with GoDaddy, or at least the name. GoDaddy is a web hosting and domain registrar with headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ. Probably most known as a domain registrar, or where you purchase a domain name, GoDaddy also offers a variety hosting services. They are an ICANN-accredited registrar. When it comes to purchasing domain names, GoDaddy might be one of the best.
They provide shared hosting, dedicated hosting, VPS, and website building tools. Their services can accommodate hosting for both personal and commercial websites. One of the most pro or appealing features GoDaddy has to offer is their customer service and support. They offer 24/7 customer phone support or chat. They are extremely helpful, especially for first timers.
Being they are a domain registrar they will often times offer a free domain name with hosting purchase. They are not the cheapest, but they are also not the most expensive.
They offer Webmail, Security Certificates, Privacy, and more. Keep in mind these always usually come at additional cost. That .99 cent domain name is not just .99 cents once you begin to add these things in.
We rate GoDaddy a 8 out of 10. Their customer service gets them the 8 (otherwise it would be 7). They are priced decently and have great, solid uptime. If you have questions regarding hosting and what best fits your needs, give GoDaddy a call. One thing they will try to do is up sell you on items. Be cautious of this, as you do not always need everything they offer.
