GoDaddy Hosting Review

You have most likely heard of GoDaddy (well if you haven’t really been living in a cave on Himalayas) and probably seen one of their outlandish television commercials some time ago. Though, these commercials barely emphasised the web services business of the company, things took a big turn with the arrival of new CEO Blake Irving on the scene in the year 2013, when Blake distanced himself from the provocative advertising approach to change the firm’s culture and brand image. So you no longer see those sexist commercials featuring women, instead GoDaddy is being increasingly recognised as one the best technology workplaces for women. Go Daddy in the recent years has recast itself as web service provider to the small and medium business owners, so the new advertising theme focuses on enabling entrepreneurs and businesses world over with their tools and technology services.

GoDaddy is a web services giant, the world’s largest domain name registrar with more than 17 million customers globally and more than 71 million domain names under management. The company employs over 6000 people in 14 facilities spread across the world. If we go by the sheer market share of business, GoDaddy is the biggest web hosting company in United States.

The big question for all of us here is what really lies beneath all the marketing efforts of the company and whether the web services offered by Godaddy live up to its name. Though the company offers a ton of products and services from domain registration, website hosting, email, ecommerce tools, website security, web builder application and others, we will here review GoDaddy web hosting services.

GoDaddy Hosting Services

GoDaddy is very well known in the web hosting space. It offers shared hosting and wordpress hosting at the entry level of hosting services. So, a customer can easily procure a domain name, sign up for one of these hosting packages and build their website incredibly fast. Godaddy also offers a range of VPS and dedicated server hosting options. So the upgrade to one of these is very seamless, as the business and traffic increases on the customer website.

Shared Web Hosting

GoDaddy offers both Linux and Windows shared web servers. It is amongst very few hosting companies that offer windows shared web hosting plans. The shared hosting plans on offer are Economy, Deluxe and Ultimate web hosting plan. When you sign up for one of these plans, you have the option to choose from 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years and 10 years term. The price of hosting is reduced if you buy multi-month and multi-year plans. They offer a special price of Godaddy $1 hosting per month. But this is only available for annual plan of GoDaddy Economy hosting. If you commit to any other term (other than 12 months), this $1 pricing is not available.

GoDaddy Economy shared hosting plan includes a free domain name (for annual and longer term contracts), 100GB storage for hosting 1 website, unlimited bandwidth. You also get 1 free business mailbox for the first year of hosting. After the end of first year, it will automatically be renewed at the then-current price of business email. You have the option of cancelling out automatic renewal at any time.

Godaddy Deluxe hosting plan builds on the economy hosting plan by adding support for unlimited websites with unlimited storage. The GoDaddy Ultimate hosting plan adds double the processing power and memory and a SSL Certificate (secure socket layer) free for first year of hosting. The SSL certificate will renew automatically at the end of first year unless cancelled.

WordPress Hosting

GoDaddy offers Managed WordPress hosting starting at a low price of $3.99/mo (applicable with a 50% off discount coupon). Their WordPress hosting platform is especially optimized to run wordpress with best speed and uptime. All the hosting setup and management tasks like updates of wordpress core, plugins and security updates are taken care by Godaddy expert professionals. You also get access to thousands of free wordpress themes. Another important feature is free daily backups of your website that can be restored with a single click. Each backed up version is saved by Godaddy for a month.

There are 4 plans on offer – Basic, Deluxe, Ultimate and Developer. All plans are available for a choice of 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, 60 or 120 months. The best price is available for 3 year or longer term only. The Basic plan allows you to host 1 website with 10GB SSD storage and is apt for a website that expects monthly 25K unique visitors. Deluxe plan increases the storage to 15GB and monthly visitor count to 100K. Also access to SSH and 1-click staging environment and an SEO wizard for site optimization are added in the Deluxe plan. The Ultimate plan builds on Deluxe plan by allowing 2 hosted websites with 30GB SSD storage with 400K total unique visitors in a month. It also adds 1 SSL certificate worth $69.99 free for a year and Website Security Essential package (valued at $83.88 per year). The highest Developer plan provides capability to host up to 5 websites with 50GB SSD storage and 800K monthly visitors in all and a host of several pro features. With all the annual plans you get a domain name free for one year of hosting.

Virtual Private Servers

GoDaddy offers both Linux and Windows server based VPS hosting packages. There are 4 different plans – Economy, Value, Deluxe and Ultimate. All of these plans come with unlimited bandwidth, 3 dedicated IPs and an SSL Certificate free of charge for first year of hosting term. Economy VPS plan provides 1GB memory and 40GB storage. This increases to 2GB memory and 60GB storage in Value VPS plan. The Deluxe VPS plan ups it further to 4GB memory and 120GB storage, while the highest Ultimate VPS plan caps it to 8GB memory and 240GB of storage space. Godaddy claims that it takes just a few minutes to provision a VPS and will take care of backups, patching and monitoring the security status of the server. Other administration tasks are either handled by the customer or Godaddy team, based on the level of management chosen (Self-Managed, Managed or Fully Managed). For fully-managed VPS plans, you need to pay an additional fee.

Godaddy provides a 1-click migration to VPS which allows any existing cPanel shared hosting customers to import their sites to VPS. New customers need to handle the import themselves or can take advantage of Go daddy’s paid website migration service.

Dedicated Servers

Just like VPS hosting plans, GoDaddy offers 4 types of Dedicated server options which are classified based on increasing levels of memory and storage. All dedicated servers come with a Web Host Manager (WHM), unlimited bandwidth, 3 dedicated IPs and an SSL Certificate (free for one year). You have the option to choose between Self-Managed, Managed and Fully Managed servers.
