GoDaddy is one of the leading hosting solutions powering over 44 million websites. The company has 14 facilities around the globe and is recognized as one of the largest domain registrars.
They also offer web hosting services that are suitable for both small and very big websites. Similarly to SiteGround, they also don’t own their server park, instead they are partnered with Amazon and rent servers from AWS.
The last 2 years of tracking GoDaddy shared hosting has shown us an uptime of 99.97% and page speed around 554 ms which shows us that GoDaddy is a reliable provider.
GoDaddy is an excellent solution for building custom websites as it comes with a simple drag-and-drop website builder (GoCentral) designed for beginners. It also features developer-friendly tools like MySQL, cPanel, CloudLinux, Python, and multiple versions of PHP.
Their cheapest web hosting plan starts from $4.33/mo (renews $8.99/mo) comes with 100GB of website storage (a lot) and unmetered bandwidth. Security monitoring and DDoS protection are included too.
However, GoDaddy has many “upsells” that will likely make you pay a bit more. For example, site backups, SSL certificates, and email accounts are not included in their cheapest plan. GoDaddy also offers 24/7 support.
