  • WordPress

Prices:

Aside from Weebly’s Free plan, which is very convenient for temporary sites, their cheapest hosting plan costs $8.00/month. Meanwhile, GoDaddy’s cheapest plan starts at about $3.50/month.

Conclusion:

While there are pros and cons to each, we give GoDaddy a slight advantage in this matchup. For one, GoDaddy’s technical support is much better than Weebly’s. On top of this, GoDaddy is also cheaper, unless you can find use for Weebly’s Free plan (which offers bare minimum features). Weebly has fewer plans to choose from, meaning you are less likely to find a plan that best fits your needs. All in all, both of these hosts are solid options, but if we had to pick one, we’d recommend GoDaddy.
