Go Daddy

Go Daddy Review
Summary :

Go Daddy website builder has to be up there with the best on the market offering a great mix of value for money and ease of use with fantastic results. You can create a really attractive websites in a short period of time with a real sense of achievement! The website editor itself is a real triumph and has clearly been engineered to give the user the smoothest possible website building experience!

Value for Money :

Go Daddy's website builder is extremely competitive in terms of pricing. You can start with the ‘economy’ package which starts as little as $0.99 a month and if you purchase a year upfront you will receive a free domain. For the ‘business’ plan you will need to pay $4.99 a month however you will be offered a wider range of features and an extended theme library. The ‘business plus’ plan offers more features still as well as an SSL certificate, this plan will set you back $9.99 a month. We feel the ‘business plan’ offers the best value for money as the higher plan doesn’t offer enough additional features to warrant paying double the monthly fee.

Editor :

GoDaddy have produced a website editor that ticks all the boxes, not only is it simple to use but offers true drag and drop functionality and all on an expansive platform. When using the editor you can see your website coming together in front of you, all of the functions flow and the side bar and option panels are non-intrusive yet readily available. Go Daddy has clearly invested a lot of time in creating a wonderfully interactive website builder. There aren’t many website builders on the market that give you so much control over your website and its design without overwhelming you with Photoshop like features. GoDaddy really have done a fantastic job with their website tool!

Templates :

The templates section is well laid out giving you a nice sized preview of each design. The templates are nice professional designs and there are plenty to choose from. Go Daddy also provide a handy filter tool on the left-hand side that allows you to narrow your search to a design that suits you. There is also a pleasant preview feature that allows you to see each template in full screen before you start editing. You are offered a different amount of templates dependant on which plan you choose. The ‘economy’ plan gives you the choice of 50 templates increasing to 300 if you purchase one of the ‘business’ plans.

Additional Features :

In terms of features Go Daddy don’t overcomplicate things. You are offered all the things you would expect, Slideshow galleries, blogs social media etc. You can also upgrade from the base plan toaccess a PayPal powered store and online ratings and reviews supplied via Yelp. Go Daddy also offer an interesting ‘Social Branding’ feature that copies the design of your website across to your Twitter and Facebook pages, this is however only available on premium plans.

Guides and Customer Service :

When you arrive at the editor you are welcomed with a 1.30 minute video explaining the basic functionality of the site and how to get started. The video is informative and gives you all the tips you need to get going with your site. Once in the editor all of the features on offer are very self-explanatory however if you were stuck the builder does lack the odd tool tip to help you out. Help is provided in the options tab by way of Go Daddy's help community which is more than enough to help you with any issues you may be having.

GoDaddy Flips It\'s Nose At The Customer

We own 7 websites and have used GoDaddy since their inception. They are now forcing us to transition to their version 7 website builder. Its awful, built for less experienced builders and so many features of 6 are not in 7. We spoke with GoDaddy and they are full of apologies but when it comes to saving our relationship all they can offer is for us to pay them 1500.00 to migrate our sites. After all these years and impeccable service we will leave GoDaddy for a better website builder. As CEO I'm surprised that their board has made such a foolish decision.

Poor SEO Building Tools

New version of website builder doesn't allow keywords or any SEO optimization. Not a good choice for website design

Outdated yet easy to use

It seems as if there is a bit of disconnect... Good customer service could mean that they are easy to contact and eager to interact...in that case, yes, they are good.. but as far as service to customers, missing flash, interactive calendars, and a slew of other options, some of which were removed through upgrades...well, that part is lacking service certianly.

So so

Okay I do not understand how is that Go Daddy is a top provider as it takes forever so the support helps with an issue...I would rather stick with Verdina.NET, they have responsive and experienced support (plus enterprise DELL hardware).

Stay away from Go Daddy.

Customer support unavailable unless you call and some of them are condescending and rude. My website not loading 60% of the time. Not worth the money. Calls constantly for marketing when told not to. Extremely annoying.
