GoDaddy is one of the biggest names out there when it comes to Web hosts — but is its popularity due to incredible functions or simply exceptional marketing? Online reviews show an average of about 3 out of 5 stars, which puts it somewhere in the middle of the pack. First, let’s go over what we like about GoDaddy hosting:

  • 24/7 customer support
  • DDoS protection
  • Above average uptime
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Both Windows and Linux based servers
  • Below average prices
  • WordPress integration

GoDaddy has many plans to choose from, and can likely satisfy just about any client out there. There have both Linux and Windows-based servers, WordPress integration, and your choice of shared, VPS, or dedicated hosting plans. Furthermore, we particularly like GoDaddy’s reliability; it has a great uptime average (that is backed by a 99.9% uptime guarantee) and a reliable customer support team.

But what’s preventing GoDaddy from receiving more of those 5 star reviews? Well, many people aren’t impressed with its page loading speed. Also, some feel that because it’s such a large company, they sometimes neglect smaller operations. And, per usual, there are some customer support horror stories out there — but you’ll likely find these with any Web host.

All in all, we think GoDaddy is a versatile, reliable, and very affordable option for Web hosting. There are currently free trial offers, as well as money-back guarantees, if you care to give them a try risk-free.
