Summary

In The Beginning

GoDaddy was established in 1997 during the early days of the internet by Bob Parsons, an American entrepreneur from Baltimore in Maryland. Initially known as Jomax Technologies, the company began to take a leading role in the relatively new industry of web hosting and domain name registration. However, in 1999 at their headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, the decision was made to upgrade the company's image by changing the name to the far more memorable Go Daddy. Their online presence began to increase on a dramatic scale prompting yet another adaptation to GoDaddy in 2006.

Worldwide Expansion

GoDaddy has grown at an incredible rate over the years. Analytic reports of 2001 estimated that the company was then of a comparable size to their major rivals. Just four years later the company was acknowledged as the leading registrar of domain names having rapidly increased to four times the size of their nearest competitor. Success has seen them expanding across the globe establishing offices in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Holland, India, Ireland, Mexico and the United Kingdom. GoDaddy now registers approximately seventy-seven million domain names and provides reliable web hosting for almost twenty million customers.

GoDaddy Services

With a vast amount of experience in the fields of web hosting and domain name registration, GoDaddy can offer their customers an exciting range of beneficial services. Their dedicated association with WordPress provides the technological management skills that allows bloggers the freedom to concentrate on creating content. Integrating with businesses of all sizes has become a speciality for GoDaddy. The provision of superior SSL merchant certification helps businesses to expand while an e-mail partnership with Microsoft's Office 365 provides greater flexibility in administration and communications. Simplified e-mail marketing strategies and a practical book-keeping service contribute to helping small businesses to flourish.

A Name To Trust

GoDaddy continues to provide invaluable services for all types of businesses from sole traders to larger companies with many employees. Inexperienced entrepreneurs know they can depend on the accessibility and advice offered by GoDaddy's dedicated twenty-four hour customer services. Established online companies such as Nextwave.org, Classifieds.USAtoday.com, Extcontent.com and the festival promoters, Coachella.com, have established and expanded their companies with the help of GoDaddy's web hosting platform. Ever since the company's formation, their considerable success has been rewarded with an endless stream of awards from leading industry institutes, confirmation that GoDaddy is a name to be trusted.

I got many complaints from customers regarding update and retrieval time lag in India, so I decided to transfer the hosting services from the US to Singapore and didn't improve the performance. I am unhappy about the performance but the latest incident made me write my opinion and inform other people, so others will be knowledgeable about what I suffered from the irresponsible hosting service provided by godaddy.com. Last week (July 25, 2018) my website was not available, I called the support and after 17 minutes hold I got a technical support and their reply was shocking.

The hardware failed and the technical team installed new hardware and they are working to restore the service. I got back the server on 08/02/2018 but the site was not working properly. Our team has to work hours and hours to make the site accessible.

More than that they restore the site from the backup copy dated July 14, 2018, and that way I lost records of my business record from 07/14/2018 to 07/25/2019. ( There is no raid in the site to switch for failure). I want to move the service to another site, so I asked for migration and they said you still in contract and can't move the service. Hope this will be a lesson for others too.

GoDaddy is a great hosting site, but you also pay for all the bells and whistles that you get. They have a great website builder, uptime has been amazing, unlimited bandwidth is available and overall support has been great. I have had a few billing issues and they send out a ton of marketing emails once you become a customer.

If you can live with the downsides, the upsides to GoDaddy are great. I would recommend their domain service and hosting, but not their marketing service.

Godaddy hosting is good for a new person starting a wordpress website. It often tends to not hold as much data as other hosting companies without a 500 error. There are several things built-in that make a new user go through the GoDaddy system until they learn how to change passwords etc.

Overall I have liked their hosting for low content websites that autorun and don't need much maintenance. For $1/month, however, there isn't a lot that one can expect.

Don't get fooled by their sales people! Was promised SEO service and got a lousy business listing.

I purchased a domain above GoDaddy. It is not very cheap. I can not always get help over the phone or live chat for the first time.  Godaddy support system is very bad.  My website is https://symbolicteam.com. Anyone can visit my website. Thanks very much????

GoDaddy is the best registrar and host ever! I'm not even lying. The first time I used their services was when I was to register a domain name (eqilhost.com) for my web hosting business.

Later on, I had decided to make a unique website for my mother's blog who wanted to put out recipes for lemon tarts, etc. She familiarised herself with the website builder, and even she isn't the best at using a keyboard or a mouse: but she had made a website! I had found out about their link shortener later on, and it was amazing!

They had x.co as a default domain, but you could use your own domain that you registered with them. You can track who visited your link through analytics, edit where the short links pinpoint to, etc. I have came to the conclusion that GoDaddy is the best. 9/10. I have not come across their support, mostly because I don't have issues, but hopefully their support does great, according to other reviews.

I am using godaddy from past 3-4 years. & I am pretty happy with their services. & now they just launched a feature of managewp, this feature can't compete anything. the price of godaddy is also best as they offer first year price almost free. Like INR 99 for .com.

I am also using godaddy hosting. The website builder is not that good. But wordpress hosting is ok. & one more thing there cloud servers are pretty awesome.

Godaddy is an average domain name and web hosting service, I have quite a few domain names hosted with them but I don’t trust them with hosting a site. They use the annoying tactic of getting you across the line with cheap offers 

and then once you are with them things get expensive to renew. Plenty of cold calling and not particularly ethical attempts to sign me up for overpriced Microsoft products that I don’t need. Just another average hosting service, I’m sure that I could do better.
