"GoDaddy!"

What do you like best?

I like everything about GoDaddy! GoDaddy has streamlined the website/online presence to acquire websites within seconds. I have all my websites purchased through GoDaddy and will continue to have them. GoDaddy's customer service is by far one of the best I've worked with.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can really complain about godaddy is that they haven't offered me any discounts since I have about 70 websites with them. I wish they'd offer discounts to loyal customers like myself and others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pull the trigger. If you have not been using GoDaddy, I apologize for any of your problems you've had with your domain controllers and hosts! GoDaddy is one of the best on the market, but you'll have to pay a little more on the cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every online business problem you can think, GoDaddy is making it work. GoDaddy go above and beyond in their customer support allow their customers to succeed. Anytime I had an issue with one of my websites, GoDaddy has always been there providing the best customer support as they say.

What Domain Registration solution do you use?

"GoDaddy: Professional, but Expensive"

What do you like best?

We like how GoDaddy has Office 365 integrated into its email system, and we also enjoy how its domain and hosting platforms are very easy to use. We use Wordpress with GoDaddy's hosting, and we also use GoDaddy for our domain name and emails. We enjoy the GoDaddy themes for Wordpress as well; they are very professional.

What do you dislike?

We dislike how expensive GoDaddy hosting is; one year costs over $89 just for hosting. 1&1 is cheaper, starting at $11.88 for the first year, hosting, domains, and emails included! GoDaddy also makes Wordpress complicated with its page-builder for Wordpress, and Managed Wordpress just ruins Wordpress with more complications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that both your domain and your hosting is in GoDaddy, as well as your emails. Also make sure that you have enough money set aside for GoDaddy, if you so desire to use GoDaddy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through GoDaddy, we are solving the issue of domain, email, and hosting integration. Before GoDaddy, we were using Squarespace for hosting, and it was a disaster. Not only were the designs cheesy, but hosting was very expensive! By using GoDaddy for both our hosting and our domain needs, we eliminated a lot of hosting-domain integration issues.

"Godaddy is great and I recommend this!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to obtain a website domain. Not only that, but the guidance and availability the website staff offers is amazing, and worth so much alone! I am in no way shape or form a website guru, but with their guidance they make it easy to use and execute. I also thoroughly appreciate how they have staff available to answer any questions you may have 24/7 every single day. I never have to wait for assistance if I need it.

What do you dislike?

I honestly don't have anything negative to say about this program. It's functions offered are great. If I had to say anything, I would say make renewing your website (yearly) easier and less time consuming. I also do not like that the company has received a lot of negative backlash in the media within the last 5 years...the CEO is questionable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say to get this software! You may need to research some things and about how the internet works with regards to websites and what not, but once you have that knowledge it will be a breeze for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I haven't solved any "problems" within my business, but this website has definitely allowed me to create my business virtually and allow it to become a more e-commerce business than before where it was more WOM (word of mouth) that allowed me to be relevant. I have increased my customers as well because location isn't as much an issue when your company is functioning online too. I love the advertising capabilities as well that they have. Advertising is crucial.

"Best Place to purchase domain!!!!!"

What do you like best?

Their Customer Support is awesome and they will guide in the entire process of buying domain and web hosting. Their plans are quite cheap to look for. They provide free SSL certificates, email & office services and help them to install too. This should be the first place for anyone to start a website.

What do you dislike?

I have faced issues in renewing the licence and also server down multiple times. Due to their cheap prices, I think they are deteriorating services too. They offer a discount to domains but not on web hosting plans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a one-stop solution to all your domain and server related requirement, then you should try GoDaddy as it is best in its class.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we build and deliver the website to our clients, so we are using go daddy to purchase domains and also to host our websites on server. the major reason to go with the godaddy is low cost and excellent support service as they becomes handy incase of server down.

"Best place to buy your Domain and host your website"

What do you like best?

Godaddy was mine first to purchase domains and host websites, and it haven't disappointed me. It is a great place to start your online journey. It is very easy to setup and place order. Their customer support is awesome and provides quick and effective resolution of your query. you can get SSL certificates too. Their control panel is quite intiutive and setting which are there are effecient to use.

What do you dislike?

The main con of this site is its cost, it is far more costlier than hostgator, and bluehost.Their online website builder tool is also not very effective and easy to use. you can face many downtime on their shared webhosting plans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Only suggestion will be if you want to buy a domain then it is the best platform, but please refer hostgator orr bluehost if you want to purchase webhosting as their plans are more effective and cheap. Their customer service is good and thus makes the entire onboarding easy and painless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used this site to purchase different domains and the experience was too easy and quick. We have also used their web hosting plan to host our website. Their plans are not very cheap but above average industry rate.

"GoDaddy Review"

What do you like best?

Easy to use

They use cPanel and the truth is that the interface is easy to follow. Although the registration process could be easier. Some pages of cPanel are not completely translated into Spanish.

Domain names

If you sign up for a year or more, you'll have a free .com, .co, .org or .net domain.

What do you dislike?

Databases:

They limit the number of databases that you can have.

SSL encryption not included:

Other providers offer Let's Encrypt so you can have SSL encryption (https) at no additional cost.

Speed:

Although it is not the slowest web hosting on the market, we expected more from this global giant.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion, it is a solvent hosting and that fulfills its function. But for the price it costs, they should offer a little more, other alternatives of similar prices offer much more quality and better support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Definitely, Goddady is one of the most serious companies in the current market, where you have to be careful with companies that only want to cheat their customers. Well, with Goddady the renovations have the same cost that they tell you since you buy the domain. With this you avoid unpleasant moments to see that your domains will go much more expensive.

"Great Support 24x7 / Tech Support Reminds me of a Used Car Salesman "

What do you like best?

I most like the availability of support staff. Whenever I need something, someone answers, and it is exceedingly rare if they can't direct me to fix my problem.

What do you dislike?

Without fail, whenever you call Godaddy for a support need, the guy on the other end will typically try to up-sell you. I realize that is their job, but I also want to say "do you know how many clients I have brought you"? Shall I list the customer numbers? Another issue I find troubling is related to reporting and resource allocation. Most of our websites don't produce a lot of traffic for most of the year. When it is getting close to our event, particularly the day before, the day of and the day after, we get tons of traffic. This year, multiple people reported that they were not able to access our website. This is partially my fault for not anticipating the resource issue, but when I called GoDaddy to figure out was was going on, they literally had no way to view the traffic in real time, so I could figure out what resources to allocate or how to prevent it moving forward. I was flabbergasted. When I pushed the technician, we got annoyed with me because I chose a shared product (which is what they recommended). Also, given all the ways they try to up-sell me, one would think they'd have a mechanism in place so that when they see on their end that I am running up against resource issues or worse, that my audience cannot access the site, they's get some sort of trigger to call me preemptively. Maybe that's the critical moment you should try to up-sell me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Between 10 different accounts, I am managing multiple websites. We use Godaddy to host our company's intranet and extranet. We also use it to host the websites of several races we produce. Each race we produce has its own brand and identity, and the shared hosting plan allows us to spin up multiple websites.

"Simple & highly reliable Web hosting service, Web builder is okay."

What do you like best?

For the newbies to the space, Godaddy is a great option to start with, for purchasing domains & web hosting. It's quite easy to setup & highly secure.

SSL certificates, email & office services are good enough to be considered.

The Support is very good in responding to issues & offers quick resolution.

What do you dislike?

It's priced on the higher end compared to its competitors. The brand name works in its favour than differentiation from alternatives. IT guys who are well aware of this web stuff can go with cheaper options.

I't's not a great choice or a cost effective one for website building.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a newbie, not on budget or it's just 1-2 sites, just go with Godaddy. But, if you are well aware of the web stuff, you may go for cheaper options for domain registration & hosting. However, Godaddy is reliable & offers great support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to quickly purchase a domain & host the website for a product launch and we found Godaddy highly reliable & easy to setup.

"Go Daddy - Go Central"

What do you like best?

I like they suggest domain names. I really like the Go Central with website building and email. I was scared to create an email. Go central made is a snap!!

What do you dislike?

I have bought a ton of stuff from them and I always give them a review. They flood me with coupons to buy but NEVER honor them, I NEVER qualify for whatever reason. Plus every time you are on the phone with them to ask a simple question, they are trying to upsell me something. It makes me not want to call in at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to tell them you have a coupon AFTER they give you a final price. If the even honor it at all. I have spent close to $1,000 with them and they have never honored the "coupons" they spam out for reviews.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can control my websites content and I can change it everyday. I am still trying to figure out the email.

"Amazing Service with Amazing Customer Support"

What do you like best?

The customer support is outstanding and every time I speak with an agent, they are polite, use great english, and truly know what they are doing. All of the products are very easy to use and it is very straight forward to purchase domains and manage everything to do with them.

What do you dislike?

The hosting is not a very good alternative to regular hosting options. I personally do not like how the emails are set up but they do work well and some of our clients really appreciate getting the combination of domain and hosting at the same location.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great service, we recommend GoDaddy as the leading provider of all domains and definitely would recommend this to others as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We purchase all our domains through GoDaddy which are cost effective especially when on the discount club. We receive the lowest prices on new domains, transfers, and renewals BUT that is because we have paid for the Domain Discount Club.

"Simple routing and pointers, cost-effective constrained hosting"

What do you like best?

GoDaddy makes hosting look easy and they streamline the process when getting your account established. Their online interface is easy to work with, domain pointing cheap, web hosting affordable, and services appear easy to use. I still use the for domain pointing. GoDaddy is one of the industry standards and amazingly is the number one host that I seem to encounter my customers being subscribed to and using.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy however has a history of holding sites hostage, limiting access, and utilizing sub-standard practices to get customers to continually pay for their accounts. There are flaws with this that causes many issues in web development especially when you are a web developer servicing a client's site at GoDaddy. It is because of GoDaddy's practices of usurping ownership of domains is why I don't recommend them to my customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are thinking about GoDaddy, I would research their models and read the reviews online. Some are dedicated to them others have their lists of issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of GoDaddy has been that of simplicity, cost, and streamlined routing of domain names. I do credit them with success in that manner. Therefore for clients that don't mind having a web host in charge of their domains and files, GoDaddy is an easy solution for managing their sites. To each their own, some clients don't mind this and therefore in those situations, I put customers who can work with GoDaddy's control structure as housed there.

"inconsistent but cheap"

What do you like best?

The support via phone is actually quite good, however there might be a wait. When you get a good employee, they are patient and knowledgable. Too bad they are not so easy to "find." They all speak proper English and their prices are competitive, especially for domains. Servers are generally reliable and domain registrations cheap and easy. The new "Pro" program is only half-baked, poorly documented and the online-platform has too many broken links.

What do you dislike?

The Pro program website doesn't really work and when you ask them about it, it's like yelling into a well with no echo or response. Inconsistent support means you might have to make several calls to get something fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fix the Pro Program and provide better, faster support. Make fully-managed more pro-active.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They provide very low cost domain registration and hosting solutions, from fully managed, to dedicated. Overall, they are dependable and helpful with well-trained, expert staff.

"Easy to Use Domain creator!"

What do you like best?

I like reviewing the domain expiration's so i know when we need to renew. We exclusively use godaddy for domain purchases.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the disconnect between the web hosting and domains. We had issues in the past with our hosting expiring and no warning that our website was going to be shut off. Needless to say it was a big headache and we now use siteground for website hosting. I also think it is quite pricey, but worth it, i wish there were more promotions sent out "renew your domain for the next 5 years and get 30% discount" etc...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Personally I feel very comfortable buying domains exclusively from godaddy, but have yet to make the switch for website hosting. A website going down is our worst fear.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we establish new business additions we quickly purchase the domain before the release so the competitors don't put us in a tight spot.

"I've been a GoDaddy customer since 2002"

What do you like best?

I have tried many other domain registrars out there, but GoDaddy continues to be the best to easily manage my domain names. I trust the brand.

What do you dislike?

I hate their upsells, though they are not as bad as before. However, even now when I am renewing a domain, I'm still hit with many "opportunities" to add this or that feature. However, I realize they cater largely to new customers who may need that guidance. I also wish they would not have done away with domain coupons.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are registering domains, GoDaddy is the way to go. They are also very reachable by phone for any type of support need. Web hosting would be another issue and they are improving, but the jury is still out on that feature for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have registered domains with them for many, many years. My domains remain safely registered, and I am send out timely reminders when the domains come due for renewal.

"Great email platform!"

What do you like best?

The low cost for our company to use Go Daddy is very appealing. As a small company we needed a low cost email solution. The other thing that is very useful is the ease of integration into other email platforms that are more user friendly such as Gmail and Outlook. I've integrated to both and it is very convenient.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Go Daddy isn't very user friendly so it forces me to integrate with another email platform. This creates a problem as there is a lag time from when I receive an email until when it actually appears in my inbox as it has to go through Go Daddy and then through the platform I'm using (i.e. Outlook).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a lot of employees and want a low cost solution, Go Daddy is for you! If you aren't comfortable with integrating Go Daddy with other platforms then it isn't for you as this is a big aspect to using the platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are keeping our costs for email down which is very helpful! And it's very easy to add new emails as we onboard new employees. As a growing business you want something that's dynamic and Go Daddy is just that.

"Terrible Customer Service and Product Support"

What do you like best?

Price was a good selling point and platform is great for new bloggers with very little traffic or Ads.

What do you dislike?

>Horrible Customer Service

>Terrible managed wordpress hosting

>They do not take ownership of issues caused by their hosting platforms

>They do not provide effective tech support

>They blame all issues with sites on the site coding or uploaded plugins

>They do not stand behind the services they sell

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you choose to go with GoDaddy NEVER lock in for more than 1 month at a time - after 30 days you do not receive any money back if you run into problems down the line - even if you haven't used the hosting yet - you are out of pocket.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

>Zero benefits > After 2 months of calls I finally got to speak with a Manager about all the issues happening on my site and the site being down all the time. He blamed all the site downtime and speed issues on my site coding and plugins. Multiple calls were placed and the issues were never resolved. Downtime became excessive. Calls to the center were in excess of 8 hours a week for 2 months in 2017 (January and February). Decided to leave the plan and asked for a refund or a credit to use the unused part of the money for other services with GoDaddy and although 2 other customer service representatives approved it - this manager went in and denied it indicating they would only allow me to move to a more expensive plan - I was not allowed to have a credit on file for the 2.5 years of unused hosting in my 3 year prepaid plan ($3000.00 or SSL certificate which did not work from the first day they added it). I had to leave their hosting to get my site back up and running and to remove the stress and time wasted on calls with them trying to fix it - and since leaving without adding or removing anything from the site design, plugins or coding my site is working 100% of the time at less than 5 seconds to load (more than 25 seconds to load with GoDaddy) and I have been with the new host for almost 1 year now with zero downtime.

"Godaddy is one of the best choice for domain registration."

What do you like best?

I have used the domain registration facility by Godaddy. Buying domain is pretty easy and fast process. Their DNS servers are fast. They give you reminder before your domain is expiring. My first domain purchased through godaddy was www.theavinashsingh.com and I am really happy with their service. I have recommended many of my colleagues and they appreciated my choice.

What do you dislike?

I haven't used the hosting service myself as I use the hosting service of different provider but many of my friends have said that the hosting service of Godaddy is just above average. Their tools are not the best one, the website builder has a poor UI/UX and it takes a little more time than normal to get the changes running on the website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Godaddy to register for domain names and also recently I have purchased Business Email. There customer service is very much friendly and they are always ready to solve my problem as quick as they can.

"I wish I had better things to say... "

What do you like best?

I like the robust all-in-one for your domain and hosting needs. I liked when I was on a company plan level and had a dedicated support/account representative.

What do you dislike?

It's not even kind of user friendly. It takes way to many clicks to get anywhere. The pop-ups and upsales make me feel harassed. Some of the pictures are pretty strange too... If you don't have an account representative, count on waiting quite a while to get any support - but realize that you're going to have quite a few voicemails from their sales team trying to upsale you on products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an all in one package, but it's affordable for a reason and they don't make it easy. It's like they want you to have to contact support so they can up-sale to you. The interesting part about that catch is that it's really hard to get ahold of their support. It's also extremely frustrating and their hold music is terrible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Domains, SSLs, hosting. The benefit is that it's something I know which makes it easier to get through.

"It's okay - not good, not great"

What do you like best?

I was sort of forced into GoDaddy when I moved our NPO website from one platform to another, but it's worked out okay so far.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy is a corporate company. They put their own profit ahead of everything else. I mean, it's the American way, so I really can't complain about it.

Do your homework before choosing a domain provider. Some will offer really cheap domain prices, and then jack up the price every year. Read reviews about customer service, etc. You have options, so choose the best fit for your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was transferring our NPO website from one platform to another, and since the original host used GoDaddy for the domain, I was kind of stuck with GoDaddy. It's okay - it would have been horribly expensive to get the same domain from another provider, so I'm just running with it.

"This is the cheapest domain provider I´ve found"

What do you like best?

I think that GoDaddy is a service which is really easy to use: I enjoy buying domains from it, because if I register a domain with them for more than 2 years, the first year is really cheap (around a dollar). I also enjoy it´s simple panel, which allows me to connect my domain with my hosting provider almost immediately, by only copying and pasting the domain adresses that I can find in the DNS panel. All in all, GoDaddy is an efficient and simple service, which is easy to use.

What do you dislike?

What I don´t like about GoDaddy is that it can be nightmare to use if it´s your first time: the first time I started buying my first domain from GoDaddy more than a year ago, and everything started working great. Nonetheless, after a month, I was asked for many, many documents to prove my identity, and as I shared all the docouments, except for one, my domain stopped working. I could solve this issue, but it took me more than a month.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that Godaddy is very reliable and easy to use. Bur I also think that using GoDaddy can become a nightmare when they block your domain name because they require even more documents than I asked for. I´d say that if you want a cheap and reliable service, and have all of your documents available (Gov ID, Driver´s license, billing adress sheet, etc.), then go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every business in the whole world can use a website to increase the reputation, it doesn´t matter if it´s my own house business in my basement, or a big enterprise, evreryone need a website. And in order to have a website, I need a domain name, and this is where GoDaddy helps me: I can get a domain name so that I can start creating a website with a cool name.

"Great for domains"

What do you like best?

I love having all of my domains in 1 spot at a decent price. The GUI has changed some but its still decently easy to make the updates needed to my domain information. I also love how easy it is to transfer domains from 1 account to another. All you need is the new owners email address and GoDaddy will take it from there!

What do you dislike?

The Go-Daddy Website Builder is complete crap, even by standards of completely novice users wanting to do some very basic simple things you would expect a website to have. For email I would recommend Google Console, for the price and the features I feel your money would be better spend there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a new domain or your looking for a new domain management console then I would recommend flipping the switch to GoDaddy. If migrating they will keep the DNS settings that are currently set for the old registrar so it should be pretty seamless. Stay away from the other products without first reviewing them AND the competition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoDaddy does 1 thing really well, Domains. It is easy to manage a large list of domains with plenty of information provided to make it easy to get the work you need to do done efficiently. When dealing with customers that you manage a domain for there are multiple services allowing them basic access to things without releaving complete administrative control.

"Pretty simple to use and usually fast enough"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use and integration with Wordpress. It's very simple to build Wordpress websites on this platform. They make it very easy to set it up with the host so you don't have to do any of the heavy lifting. GoDaddy is trusted and integrates well wit pretty much everything. I also like that you can now more easily change the DNS settings. This used to be a hassle but is fine now. GoDaddy isn't improving as fast as I would like, but they are getting better and better each year, so it is hard to complain much.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that their backend is sometimes difficult to navigate. Some of the website is modern and newer, while other parts are pretty old. There aren't simple links anywhere either. It sometimes takes at 6-7 clicks to get somewhere and that is too many, in my opinion. It should be more simple to navigate. The website seems too cluttered and busy in places.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very needed platform. Since it is very well-known, it integrates pretty well with everything.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use GoDaddy for our hosting and domains. We also use the email forward feature, which comes in handy. Websites are essential to running a business nowadays, so this is a good place to host that. Every company is now going online, so this is definitely the present and the future of commerce.

"Professional Web-hosting and Website builder online"

What do you like best?

I like go daddy, and how useful they are. They offer an intial deal for $12 hosting and domain for a year. Then they connect you to web designers who will build your website and emails, making it easy for your business to look professional. They now set up and host my very own Word-Press Website!

What do you dislike?

The pricing get's expensive, I noticed after a year I will be paying $200+ a month to keep running my website and business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Working with GoDaddy is easy as they have Technicians that will help you make your business look as professional as it can, from helping get a domain, to doing the technical work, and actually building the online side of your business!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Godaddy, i am able to make my business seem more professional. I noticed after setting up a website and getting help with emails, there were more clients walking through the door and discovering my business. It was a game changer!

"More than just domain names"

What do you like best?

GoDaddy is pretty much the one stop shot when registering a website, and they've done an amazing job building around that. If you want or need, they can handle everything from simply registering a domain name for you, to providing a business phone number, server hosting, email services, and even offer a discount on Microsoft Office 365 when registering through them.

What do you dislike?

As with most online serives and products these days, where they try to make their money is with added services like SSL implementation, email services, website building tools, and so on. Often times these addes services are offered at a discount for the first month, or free for the first month as a trial. Your payment information is already on file. Pay attention to what you're agreeing to and signing up for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid to shop around. GoDaddy may be the biggest name, but that doesn't always mean they are the cheapest at what they do. Often times, they are. Know what you're signing up for. That domain name might only be one dollar right now, but it will need to be renewed eventually. If you don't need extra products or services then don't agree to them, especially if they are free trials that will begin charging you after a month. Stay smart when shopping for online services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As with most customers, I use the domain name registration services for my websites. While I don't use any of the offered additional services or products, such as a discounted Office 365 subscription, I do always keep it in mind for when I need to look into things such as that.

"The Best In The Industry!!! "

What do you like best?

The customer service is definitely the best aspect compared to other companies that provide the same services. I also like the offers they provide for most purchases.

What do you dislike?

Their prices are a bit high. Yet, worth what you pay based on the customer service you get. They make constant changes to improve the system so you have to relarn to use it every time they do so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are MANY companies out there who offer the same services for less. Yet, GoDaddy offers GREAT customer support and they will help you learn how to use their system so you don't have to pay an "expert" to do the work for you. It's definately worth EVERY penny!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have 5 different websites with GoDaddy. This platform helps me created websites and make changes on my own. I don't have to pay anyone to manage my sites. It's helping me save money and promote my services online and on Social Media.

"A reliable and convenient web hosting platform"

What do you like best?

It offers easy and affordable domain registration and web-hosting service. You get value for your money and get to choose your ideal package. The support is available when assistance urgently. Offers variety of tools and options to the users.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything I don't like about GoDaddy. Maybe they should try to simplify the explanations on their website for beginners to understand easily. For the experienced users everything is okay.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should consider switching to GoDaddy. You will find all the information you need to make an informed decision when you visit their website. I am yet to experience any major problem but it's also important to pay attention to the experience of other users. For me it is a better option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It offers excellent web hosting service. You can find valuable tutorials on their website that you can use to solve any technical issues. You can also get in touch with the support team instantly. If you choose the right package, you are unlikely to encounter any problems.

"GoDaddy has been a very good hosting company for me and my clients"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use of the control panel along with the support they provide. Anytime I come across an issue or problem the support team is quick to answer all my questions and do the best they can to solve my problems. Their interface displaying all the different products under your account is easy to navigate and view exactly what you have.

What do you dislike?

The shared hosting servers can be slow at times, but other than that no other dislikes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a small to medium size business and looking for a hosting company that provides great support at a reasonable cost Godaddy is for you. The support is top notch and the products they are offer are of a top level.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoDaddy allows me to quickly purchase domains, add to hosting and get a website up quickly. Since most of the websites are WordPress the quick one click install makes setting up a WordPress website quick and painless.

"Worst Transfer support"

What do you like best?

I had seen there many offers such as domain @ ₹99 and ₹399, Hosting at ₹ 59 was been surprised by the offer and purchased one of the domain with them. It was great to have a domain name with them.

What do you dislike?

Only one thing I came bad experience with them when I tried to move from Godaddy to another service provider. Domain name transfer was trying to do so I had checked with all the formalities and done the procedure 4 months prior the expiry date but went unsuccessful so I tried 2 times but then also it was not done. so I had raised a ticket they said we didn't receive any request, but when I explained to them that I had used your private key towards new service provider and they had sent you a request for transfer, but you rejected that. so I had raised another support ticket with ICANN and then after that Godaddy executive called me for retention but I said I am fed up and then that person just hung the call on me.

Soon after the complaint, it has been transferred to it within 4 days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Godaddy is good at the service but while transferring domain it won't do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nothing has solved my problem while transferring the domain name. Thanks to ICANN I got it done.

"Does what I need, for a reasonable price"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of setting up your domain name and / or hosting for you website. I have also been in contact with customer support a few times, which has always been a pleasant and successful experience. I have attempted to use other domain and hosting services, but haven't found any other that comes to par with GoDaddy's ease of use and supreme customer support.

What do you dislike?

Theres not really anything that I dislike! Perhaps pricing for hosting could be a bit cheaper. There are many other services out there that offer cheaper hosting subscriptions, but I think what you're paying for with GoDaddy is worth it, with the quality it offers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for for ease of use and quality support, you can't go wrong with GoDaddy

GoDaddy offers easy to set up domains and hosting for our websites.

"Managed Wordpress and Domain Registration a breeze"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use, simplicity of structure, and especially the automatic wordpress patching/upgrading.

What do you dislike?

First year pricing is very competitive, but renewal pricing is much higher. Would have appreciated them to be a bit better balanced, or a more straightforward long-term ricing model. I also would love to have the option to use externally issued SSL certificates with the managed hosting option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend to keep an eye on prices and deals when signing up, but, more importantly, take note of the long-term pricing and carefully consider whether or not it is the best value for the service provided. Then, if you decide to go with GoDaddy for your services, you can consider the first-year/term discount as an added perk.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple web site hosting and domain registration/management. GoDaddy provides all DNS features that I need in a simple interface. The managed Wordpress implementation has saved countless hours of maintenance and tracking updates.

"Decent hosting and solid domain registration"

What do you like best?

I like how quick and easy it is to search for domains and register them. There are also simple tools that allow us to connect the domains to third-party web hosts. The GoDaddy account overall is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

We've hosted some web pages with GoDaddy that were extremely slow. These pages were part of WordPress installs. We tested the pages on other web hosts and they were significantly faster on the other web hosts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GoDaddy is good for certain products, like domain names and shared hosting of basic websites. If your website is complex, you might want to consider a smaller web host that may have less users per server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoDaddy has been a reliable and secure place for us to register and manage many of our domain names. Whenever we've had issues, which usually involve domains, the GoDaddy support team has been very helpful and spent a great deal of time with us on the phone.

"GoDaddy: Good registrar for most, good hosting for some"

What do you like best?

I like GoDaddy's domain name registration. They will sell the first year very cheaply. If you have many domains, you can purchase membership in their domain name club which allows you to re-register at a discount (currently $8.49 per year). If you have one or two domains, renewals are somewhat more, like every other registrar I've known. Also, the GoDaddy knowledge base is good, support is pretty good, and their tools are pretty well designed. If you are a novice with nobody to guide you, this is a good company to get started with.

What do you dislike?

GoDaddy does not make free HTTPS using LetsEncrypt as painless as some other hosting companies. It is possible to automate, but as of this writing you'll have to search the web for instructions, and be willing and able to set up your own scripts. GoDaddy sells certificates that compete with the free LetsEncrypt certificates, so they probably believe they have motive to keep this difficult at present.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a beginner without guidance, I believe the good help documents, good support, and well-designed website make this a reasonable choice. If you are on a budget, try to use the free LetsEncrypt certificate for HTTPS instead of paying GoDaddy, but you might need help setting that up (secure https is getting more important thanks to some Google initiatives). If you are not on a budget it might not be worth the hassle to save $100 or so per year at first. If you are experienced you might want to use GoDaddy as your domain name registrar, but you might want to check around for hosting that allows you more access at a lower price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I register domains with GoDaddy. I have used their hosting but am in the process of moving to a cheaper, more user-friendly hosting environment.

"Best option for connecting and buying domains if you know nothing about it"

What do you like best?

I've used GoDaddy for two things: buying a new domain and transfering another and both actions were really easy even though I didn't know what I was doing.

The help they provide for transfering and buying is really useful for users like me that didn't know anything about domains.

Price is good, too. I feel like the security for my account is really good because they provide the customer number (don't even know why) and that make me feel sure of using GoDaddy. Also, they do not charge more or have ghost charges and I like that. The promos are good, too.

Connecting the domain with Wix was really easy and I am grateful.

What do you dislike?

Too much emails. I am now using only the service with my company and they send updates weekly, more or less, about the account. I may be able to deactivate that but haven't had the time to review it.

While the transfer, wasn't sure of the process.

They did not have the customer service chat when I needed it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really a really complete company that can help anyone to get a domain, make a webpage, host it or to transfer a domain and connect it. Haven't tried the marketing tools but they may be good.. it is really good for having everything concetrated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We previously had the domain with another company because that company also provided us the webpage but we migrated the webpage to Wix so I transfered the domain to GoDaddy because of the price and how easy is to connect the domain from GoDaddy to Wix.

"A Well Rounded Collection Of Products To Build Your Web Presence"

What do you like best?

They excel at being a domain registrar, providing comprehensive email service, some elegant web-based productivity software such as Microsoft Office 365 & Online Bookkeeping, and out-of-the-box WordPress solutions. One of my personal favorite features is the Pro Dashboard, which lets you easily manage & monitor your clients GoDaddy products, add analytics, security, and SEO tools to your sites, suggest new products to your clients and get rewarded with in-store credit if your clients purchase them.

The pricing is fair, and the customer support is excellent. Any issues I brought to their support team was quickly and thoroughly resolved with little to no headache. I've had them walk me through procedures which enabled me to get through tasks myself that I had previously needed them to do for me.

The domain and DNS management tool-set they provide is the best I've ever seen from any domain registrar. Making changes to your domains records, adding sub-domains, changing name servers, and all other domain configuration options can be very easily changed with very little challenge. Simple enough for new-comers and feature-rich enough veteran web-masters.

Another thing I enjoy about GoDaddy is that they offer promotions to their existing customers quite frequently.

What do you dislike?

The renewal and privacy charges and can be quite high for your domains compared to other domain registrars.

The website, hosting, and security products fall short in in terms of configurability and performance compared to many other service providers I've frequented who offer similar products at similar prices.

The user interface could provide more in ways on continuity. The appearance and navigation changes some-what drastically from section to section which becomes annoying very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in need of domains, email provisions, and/or web based office and bookkeeping solutions then it's simply one of the best experiences at some of the best prices you could hope for.

Additionally, if you work with numerous clients who use GoDaddy products, then it's worth it to have an account with GoDaddy as well, as it allows you to easily manage your clients products from a centralized dashboard.

Finally, GoDaddy takes care of it's loyal customers by providing them exclusive promotional sales and discount codes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Whenever I need a domain and/or email services, I turn to GoDaddy. The price for these services has saved me time and money.

"A decent value for web hosting"

What do you like best?

They can easily handle DNS, add name servers and sign up for email. Lots of features are in most plans. The setup and tutorials so simple that even if I am a tech novice, I can get up and running without too much trouble.

What do you dislike?

You are a bit limited with templates. There is not much customization possible with the templates. For some products, they tend to give them a very low price, but don't necessarily offer the quality you'd get for the same product at another hosting company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think if you want a basic web host from a reputable company that can help you with problems, then GoDaddy is good choice. I'd stay away from them if you want more complicated web developments or the fastest servers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to host a basic website for a relatively low price. We had customer service that was easy to access whenever we had issues. GoDaddy gave us tools for us to manage our web services on our own. We never experienced any major security issues while using GoDaddy, so that was great.

"Love GoDaddy but... just the Domains !! "

What do you like best?

Godaddy offers a great and easy way to buy domains, just love that part. You can make easy changes to the DNS or some other settings. All the options and extensions available for domains are awesome and hard to find elsewhere.

What do you dislike?

The hosting services for me are so bad, they are slow and want to charge for everything beware of that when buying something, cause the offer a lot of extras. The support is terrible only by phone and you get in there stuck a lot of hours. The interface is somewhat confusing for beginners a lot of clicks to get the point. And specially when you ae buying

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use only their domains, don´t go for hosting. You will suffer is something goes wrong as the support is bad and the servers are generally slow. Buy domains with a great price and host it elsewhere you will be so happy

"Domain Booking | GoDaddy"

What do you like best?

It allows us to purchase and configure any domain pretty quickly compared to other domain registration sites. The number of steps which we have to go through to register on GoDaddy is significantly lesser.

What do you dislike?

The prices keep fluctuating on Godaddy. This is the worst feature of it. For the same domain, I had to pay increased price when I tried to purchase it the next day!

Also, the customer support isn't that great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for business website registrations as well as business emails from our own custom domain. It is easy to access multiple domains on GoDaddy. They are well organized and accessible. All businesses want to go online so Godaddy is used in most of the domain registrations for them

I like that I know very little about designing a website but their customer service team walked me through each step of getting everything in order for my business. They set me up with what I needed and I have not had any problems.

What do you dislike?

I purchased a website domain and since it was hosted by another website through go-daddy there were fees associated with moving my domain into a go-daddy only account. That was frustrating because I thought I was just with them! I do wish they would provide more tools to boosting website domains in search engines etc.

"Only Web Hosting Service You Need"

What do you like best?

The customer service at GoDaddy is amazing. Honestly, I don't think I have experienced such great, timely service from any customer service in any field in my entire life. Consistently the promptness and helpfulness of GoDaddy's phone support blows me away. When one of our sites was hacked, GoDaddy had fixed the issue, increased security, and returned all previous content within 20 minutes of us making the call. I will be a lifelong customer.

What do you dislike?

The GoDaddy website is a bit tricky to use. Everything seems straightforward but I find myself looking for the right area to find the right information for much longer than I'd expect. Unlike almost every vendor and platform, I think the phone support is sincerely easier than the self-service website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While the old commercials turned me off from GoDaddy originally, its 24/7 customer service makes it the right choice for web hosting.

"Affordable Domains"

What do you like best?

Searching for a domain name that best suit my business was necessary. Having Godaddy give me the best price and also suggestions to different domains really helped me in choosing what I wanted. I like the layout that shows you all the domains that you own. There are features that I haven't used that I know others would love like being able to hire web developers or being able to create a unique email address according to your domain name.

What do you dislike?

Some of the domains were already taken which is frustrating of course. But it was somewhat difficult to see how I could go about buying the domain from others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My only recommendation is to make it easier to negotiate prices with those who already own a domain you want to use. I think it helps with bidding wars to allow a feature like this. It also helps those who like to collect domains so they can easily sell that domain to another person but at the right price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a selling account on Etsy and it is really difficult to funnel all traffic to your shop only. Having a separate domain/website for your items only, really helps set you apart from the rest!

"Dummies proof"

What do you like best?

GoDaddy is specially design for newbies with enough power to be used for professionals. It takes only 5 minutes to have a domain in your pocket. Also the process for SSL certificates is dummies proof. Problems? They have a chat willing to help you anytime!

What do you dislike?

It seems they have 2 or 3 account look and feel. Is like sometimes is a website, sometimes is another one. You have to pay attention in order to dont make any mistakes.

Use it. It's really easy to setup everything. I can't find any other solution to manage all you domain related stuff

"Get's the job done!"

What do you like best?

GoDaddy is straight forward with prices and services and is my go to for web hosting. The price is reasonable for the service provided. My experience with canceling and transferring domains and hosting for clients was very simple and quick. Their were no hoops to jump through and it was easy to navigate to the account manager.I recently transferred a website for a client and everything was finished within 10 minutes.

I get an email notification every time my hosting is renewed.

What do you dislike?

The web hosting email had some kinks when I first started using GoDaddy as my website hosting provider. I was having trouble forwarding my emails to my main business email. After missing a few emails I tried to resubmit my request for forwarding and have not had an issue after that. The actual checkout on the website seemed like a longer process then it needed to be. With automatic renewal on my account I haven't had to deal with this issue since the first time I purchased my domain and web hosting. The automatic renewal makes up for the extra questions being asked when first signing up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My experience with GoDaddy is with smaller and simple business websites and I would recommend this product for that purpose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GoDaddy for domain registration and website hosting for my personal website and recommend it to clients if they prefer having easy access to their account and enable them to make changes on their own.

"Not sure if confusing or I'm just not tech-y enough; overall Good"

What do you like best?

I like how they simplify things; when I wanted to connect my domain to my website, it was easy and simplified on GoDaddy's end (as opposed to the complexity of SquareSpace where my sight is hosted). I also LOVED my customer service experience. I was really struggling because I could not login or access my account for a long time, but the chat feature on Go Daddy's site was helpful and they were able to reset it very quickly. Also like the price - not too expensive.

What do you dislike?

There is not much that I dislike. What was confusing, however, is the username vs "email on file" vs customer number vs "domain on file" - that can be very annoying especially since I am prone to forgetting things and trying to recover passwords, usernames, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, would recommend. Seems to be a relatively inexpensive option for getting a custom domain.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Go Daddy for my personal photography business. I just started using it so I do not understand most terms like bandwidth and other technical things but so far I am loving having my own unique domain for my website and it seems to be everything I need.
