GoDaddy is specialized in the following hosting products:
  • Web hosting (including WordPress hosting);
  • VPS hosting;
  • Dedicated Servers;
  • Domain registration;

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.

😃 Godaddy.com is Good for Shared Hosting
I am really satisfy with godaddy. Technical support is very good. I would suggest godaddy for shared hosting. I have never used VPS or dedicated services.

😠 Worst Experience
Just for a single complain from nowhere, they locked my domain for 7 days. I got everything down and tried to reach them to open it and they denied my requests. Nightmare.

😉 OK but could be much better.
The service is decent overall, little downtime and quick to answer and fix things.

There are quite a few small things that can make or break fantastic ratings and keep customers.

- You can only have 1 domain hosted on the economy plan, most free hosting providers give you more than that.
- Their own control panel is bulky, clunky and an all around mess to find anything. Just when you think you know where stuff is, they go and change it and more stuff around. Most hosts will offer cPanel.
- The servers are decent. Sometimes there are some heavy loads that make your site crawl or not even display.

I ended up cancelling the remainder of my hosting, took the refund and started a Hostgator account for very close to the same price. Couldnt be happier. I can have multiple domains, cPanel and faster, consistent servers.

I can do much more with my HG hosting than GD would allow and FTP is nice and fast. The very least GD can do is provide all hosting plans with cPanel...you can not tell me they can not afford it!
