Overview of GoDaddy
GoDaddy is one of the largest domain name and hosting providers on the internet. I have used their service on 2010. On this time, they have received many quality awards as well as began to explode their advertising campaign on the internet.
This company is proud to be the provider of services to over 61 million active domain names and millions of small companies use Godaddy’s service for their websites. All of these impressive accomplishments are attributed to the advertisements and the hiring of bloggers to promote them in major events before 2010 including their presence in the Super Bowl (The biggest sport event in America).
Godaddy can be said that outside the majestic, GoDaddy nothing special. However, I will still explain them about their basic service so you know more about them.
We can say that GoDaddy has nothing special except for aggressive advertising strategies. However, I will still explain through their basic services so that you can know more about them.
Godaddy Hosting Packages
With the current promotion, you only need to spend $1/month to be able to use BASIC Managed WordPress package has been integrated with GoDaddy features such as firewall, malware scan, anti-DDoS, sFTP, PhpMyAdmin, built-in cache, daily backup …
Nowadays, when you sign up for WordPress Hosting from Godaddy for over a year, you get a free .COM/.NET/ .ORG/ .CO domain name only $12/year.
The basic parameters of this hosting package are as follows:
- The price is only $ 12/year + a free domain name
- 10 gigabytes of hard drive space (SSD)
- Use for 1 domain
- Bandwidth for 25,000 visitors per month
- Daily backup
- The load speed is very fast
In addition, GoDaddy has a theme library and a plugin to help you to setup your website/blog in just a few clicks. If you do not want to use these theme, you can upload the themes from the free library of WorkPress.
The small web hosting can occupy most of their clients and is quite easy to use if you want something to start with. For many advanced users, GoDaddy includes virtual private server (server and dedicated server). These services are usually only available to companies or organizations that have a web site with a huge amount of traffic and structure for a website that contains a lot of resources (articles, images, etc.). There are also VPS services that are more reliable than the basic services offered, but it really depends on your needs.

The weakness of Godaddy
Database limit: ‘unlimited’ bandwidth, but you are limited storage space.
Customer support staff are always annoyed when you tell them their service is not good and you do not want to use. And it seems they know about their competitors with better services in certain aspects but they never want to admit it.
Security is No.1 priority for web hosting services. But for GoDaddy, you need worry about the security of your hosting, because Godaddy used to be hacked, these hacker controled and retrieved the customer information from the entire system.
With Page Load Speed: Godaddy not as fast as other providers.
Not a fan of GoDaddy because I switched to a new provider this year but I must say that Godaddy would not be a bad hosting provider if you have a small blog or website and you do not have much knowledge of Webhosting.
I think you should stay away from Godaddy’s shared hosting package if you intend to develop your website for a long time.
But with many big promotion campaigns of Godaddy, they are usually chosen by alot of customers. They usually offer discount codes for their services. If you are a beginer and want to build a small website, Godaddy is a good choice.
