📄 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.

😠 Support: They will not help you locate, find or setup the default php5.ini file. They need to do that because their php.ini is unique in many places - i.e SMTP. If you do not know how to find their file and copy it you are out of luck. Found answer in Forum - finally.
PHP website comments: The php mail() function will not send eMails if the domain in the 'from' email address is aol.com, yahoo.com, gmail.com .. and some others. This is probably to prevent spam. If you use php and mail() for forms EMail, DO NOT use GoDaddy Windows Economy Plan. It will NOT work for you.

😠 I would definitely say GoDaddy web hosting is the worst for many reasons.

First I let me point out that technically Godaddy has the worst technical support, why you ask? because their support is nothing more than a 24/7 answering service, with the most common and technical support assistance being "it's not the server...check your code".
Godaddy Technical Support = 24/7 very un-knowledgeably staffed answering service.
GoDaddy is definitely and simply the worst hosting service.

This isn't just based on one bad experience with them, no matter what the problem, slow page loads -upto a minute to load some pages, scripts that worked and suddenly does not work with out any code changes, FTP errors, website down, cannot load page errors 500 and 403 for ever, the extent of godaddys' tech support for all of these issues and any other problems that you may have is the same response "check your code".

In every category Godaddy proved to be slower, error filled and more problematic than other popular hosts.
I can't understand why they are so popular.

There are other hosts that are better than GoDaddy, have real 24/7 customer technical support and cost less.

Do a Google search for;
"Godaddy problem" or "Godaddy sucks"
Godaddy is very slow, they seem to have issues with the servers seems like every other day so your site is down half of the time, All negative comments that they feel will reflect badly on Godaddy support forums get filtered out by moderators or held until they can come up with what would appear to be a legitimate response.

I will be leaving Godaddy for sure... still trying to find a host that is reliable. Everyone recommends BlueHost and HostGator but they dont have Windows Hosting plans, but now may be the right time to switch to a linux server anyway so I think I will try Arvixe after reading some of the reviews here for the top 10 hosts.

Only go with Godaddy if you won't ever need any technical support or you welcome sever and website downtime in between the 1 minute page load times on your websites....Google hates that!
Avoid Godaddy like the plague for websites, customers and your own sake...

😠 My client ordered a domain and hosting account Saturday morning; it's now Monday night and the site is still not live. I called support 3x... this last time, after reaching a human being -- he put me on hold for 20 min, came back and I've been back on hold for another 15 min. I'm still waiting... while I'm writing this.

I'm a web designer and it makes me look terrible with my client. She orders the account, and it's still not live. And there's nothing I can do.
