Conclusion:

Although Web.com has solid shared hosting with excellent uptime reliability, it’s tough to call them a better host than GoDaddy. You could argue that their shared hosting plans are superior, but in the big picture, we prefer GoDaddy. They have far more hosting options, their shared hosting is cheaper, and Web.com’s shared hosting isn’t good enough to give them a convincing advantage over GoDaddy.
