A .com domain:

📄 Editorial Review

GoDaddy.com is the biggest domain name registrar in the world.

GoDaddy is one of the most popular hosting companies in the industry that claims they have more than 18.5 million customers and they control more than 77 million domains.
GoDaddy is specialized in the following hosting products:
  • Web hosting (including WordPress hosting);
  • VPS hosting;
  • Dedicated Servers;
  • Domain registration;
  • Reseller hosting;
  • Website Builder.
  • DNS

Shared hosting plans include unmetered bandwidth, one free domain and free business email. GoDaddy promises that these plans are equipped with 1-click install of 125+ free applications (WordPress, Joomla, etc.), 1-click purchase of additional resources (CPU, RAM, etc.), flexibility, 1GB database storage (MySQL Linux), 1-click setup for GoDaddy registered domains. Technical specifications for Reseller options include free integrated WHMCS license; WHMCS and cPanel; up to 250 white-labeled ready accounts; unlimited websites and databases; unmetered bandwidth; free SSL certificate. VPS hosting is equipped with 1-year free SSL certificate, 3 dedicated IPs, full root access, unmetered bandwidth. Dedicated servers have similar features as the VPS hosting options.

The latest news about GoDaddy represent their implication and achievements on various aspects. The last headlines published in April showed that they were active in:
- Hosting a conference call: "GoDaddy Inc. Announces First Quarter 2019 Earnings Conference Call";
- Launching an online store: "Entrepreneurs Can Now Easily Sell Everywhere with the Launch of GoDaddy Marketplaces";
- Supporting equality: "GoDaddy earns Perfect Score on 2019 Corporate Equality Index on LGBTQ Workplace Equality";
- Involving themselves in various events: "GoDaddy Inc. To Present At The 47th Annual J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media And Communications Conference".

The Go Daddy Group of companies also includes Wild West Domains, Inc. ( wildwestdomains.com ), a reseller domain-related services and products, Domains By Proxy ( domainsbyproxy.com ), a private registration service Starfield Technologies, an advanced software and Internet solutions (including SSL) and Blue Razor Domains, a membership discount registrar.

As an ICANN-accredited domain registrar, Go Daddy has lots of names under management, offers products at prices at less price than the competition and supports them all with world-class 24/7 customer service.

They develop their technology in-house, and do not outsource the support operations. This enables them to provide best support and ensure the advanced and competitively products and services.

Founded by Bob Parsons ( bobparsons.com ) in 1997, The Go Daddy Group has grown to millions of domains under their management. They offer a complete product line, including large hosting solutions, SSL certificates, website creation tools, personalized email, e-commerce tools and a lot more.

NOTE 2020: Godaddy is now offering real dedicated machines (bare metals) called Generation 4, instead of old (retired) virtual dedicated machines

In order to stay globally closed to all worldwide customers, they are using subdomains for a lot of countries (like in.godaddy.com for India or de.godaddy.com for Germany), localizing for their languages.

😠 The whole incident illustrated:

1. How poor at communication your team is.
2. How broken your backend systems are

Your system clearly showed a domain as available for registration, so I attempted to do so. For over 24 hours it sat in processing - despite having successfully billed my credit card. I reached out trying to get clarification, and got no response.

The registration then was canceled, but without any explanation or contact from you. Not knowing why, I simply registered again. This second registration was then canceled. I finally was able to get in contact with someone, but they seemed more concerned with explaining why this happened than empathizing with how poor of a customer experience this is.

I understand that you cannot sell a domain that is not available. I get that. But, what I do NOT get is why your system seems to not have any idea what domains are available or not. This leaves me with zero confidence that even something as simple as renewing my existing domains will not fail for inexplicable reasons.

What I also don't understand is why your support staff is unable to communicate in both a timely and effective fashion. A canceled registration should have been accompanied by an explanation. In this case I already had an open support ticket with you for 24+ hours by this point - you could have responded to that? Then, when I finally was able to get a customer "service" person on a chat, he seemed to not realize just how horrible of a user experience this whole system was. I do not have these problems with other registrars that I use, and I've owned MANY domain names over the past two decades - so it's not like I'm inexperienced in registering domains.

I will be transferring my domains away from you over the next 12 months in direct response to this CSR’s poor communication skills.
