GoDaddy Web Hosting Review doesn’t make any sense nowadays because you can find hundreds of bad review of their hosting service. Before starting discussing GoDaddy web hosting Review let me tell you one thing, most of high rating articles ranking on google about any hosting company doesn’t means that they are good hosting provider at all, Big hosting companies like GoDaddy, HostGator, BlueHost run affiliate programs with huge commission which attracts affiliate marketers to earn thousands of dollars with them.
Search on google with the keyword “GoDaddy Hosting Review” you will see links of WhoisHostingThis, PcMag, TopTenReviews websites ranking on top 3 results and they all are affiliate marketers if you visit these websites and if you purchase anything from links on website they will make commission on that, and thats why they shows high ratings to worst hosting providers as well. The truth is these marketers promote promote Hostings like WP Engine, BlueHost, Liqued Web but even they stick with HostGator Web Hosting which is really funny they recommend you expensive hosts and they go with HostGator or InterServer host their own websites.
GoDaddy Uptime and Reliability
We already shared few topics about GoDaddy in our previous articles but now am going to share my feedback once again, I had my first hosting account with GoDaddy in 2009 economy plan to host my SMF based discussion forum. For first few months it was fair enough but speed wasn’t satisfactory at all, then after 6 month I noticed that my forum goes down even if we have 150 real time traffic which is very low. I got email to upgrade my hosting plan but I decided to switch with Liquid Web hosting after a year. So according my experience if your website doesn’t have traffic and its just HTML or PHP website which hardly get 10K pageviews per month they are good at $12/year but when it comes to renew I highly recommend you to move with our premium hosting 😛 at YouStable.com or check our previous web hosting reviews.
GoDaddy Features and Security
In 2011 they were using custom control panel which was really irritating but now they provide standard most love cPanel for every shared hosting users. They have integrated some additional features on control panel for example WordPress Hosting users get pre-installed GoDaddy plugin which helps you to setup your WordPress blog or website easily. But there service is same like before and security is also satisfactory at all.
If you are not technical them am sure you will need help to setup your account but trust me you are not gonna love their support service at all. In US and India they provide call support however on call you get basic support like DNS Update, Account Setup, etc but you need to open support ticket to get any technical help. When my website was there I called up for some changes in htaccess and they took over 2 days which was really frustrating.
What I hate in GoDaddy?
There is one most annoying thing in GoDaddy which makes me crazy on every order, which is product up selling. They try to sell you product which you don’t really need and if you are not bit smart with your cart then you forcibly sell you additional products. For example just try to buy a simple .com domain name and place the order without editing your cart you gonna notice that they will add domain for a additional year + privacy protection. So next time be cleaver
