Reliable and Competent - They undoubtedly know what they're doing, and you'll estimate GoDaddy service to be reliable and competent. They have one of the best domain searching options available – if a website you wish to buy isn't any longer obtainable, GoDaddy will place it on backorder. They additionally give an enormous domain auction wherever the shortest, spiciest domain names are up for grabs.

Support - GoDaddy.com is additionally known as a large ICANN-accredited name registrar (actually there are 3 of all of them closely-held by The GoDaddy Group). This permits the company to deliver a range of product and support them 24/7, 365 days a year. GoDaddy provides entirely different services from low-cost website hosting, name registration, GoDaddy website builder, to serious solutions for businesses and e-commerce websites. GoDaddy asserts that they don’t handle any outsourcers. They own, run and support their data centers what permits the company to provide customers with high-level protection. Among GoDaddy facilities are secure hardware, advanced systems, and technologies, network redundancy, on-site support employees.

Easy to use - GoDaddy is incredibly simple to use. One-click install of over 150 free applications available with cPanel for Linux and over 70 free applications available with Parallels Plesk for Windows. The file manager, domain and database manager are all fantastic. Online file managers are rarely, therefore, flexible. It doesn't do everything. However, it's appealing to the attention and equipped with more than standard array of options. Note that some things require setup time. If you would like to make a brand new database, for instance, there's a delay that can take up to twenty-four hours.

Control Panel - GoDaddy uses it’s own custom backend with styling to make it look more unique and professional. One thing we like is that the control panel is easily accessible and integrated into their general client area. There are more than 200 apps available (like WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Simple Machines, Zen Cart, etc.). Along with the usual options, you can also access all the Developer and WordPress Joomla toolkits.

Latest acquisition - On May 17, 2016, GoDaddy announced it has entered into an agreement to purchase FreedomVoice for $42 million in cash. FreedomVoice is a provider of cloud-based VoIP phone systems that serves nearly 40,000 customers across the United States.

Have been with Godaddy for about 15 years and for normal hosting its fine. BUT Wordpress is a completely different matter. Don't time and page freeezes too many. Data center not in UK and have seen downage time from 5.45pm GMT with blockages in Amsterdam which coincides with when US wake up! Moving to managed word press was even worse and had to go back to normal hosting. Can't wait to leave GoDaddy. I cannot see this improving until they get UK data centers. One word... shocking
great customer support as long as its not a server issue
NOT UK DATA CENTER

It's one of the best value for the money hosting. It is the best solution for a small/medium website.
Very cheap first year
The support is a bit slow

Great hosting company. I've used InMotion, Rackspace, HostGator, Softlayer and others on various size/scale projects, and GoDaddy consistently delivers the best service and support. They were super friendly and knowledgeable. Figured out my problem quickly!
Cheap and reliable, Great custom panel
Waiting for support sometimes is a bit long (20mins)
