GoDaddy is a hosting company that was a rapid success post its incorporation in year 1997. The web host’s instant success is largely attributable to it very popular super bowl commercials and needless to say company’s very high profile mascots. GoDaddy is equally popular for its domain registration and domain hosting services at very affordable prices. If the two services of the web host are to be compared, it would come out in the GoDaddy review that the domain registration services of the hosting company are more popular. Since its inception the web host has so far the biggest domain registrar with the highest number of registered domain names in the whole world.
This GoDaddy review aims at exploring different characteristic features of the hosting company and its hosting offerings that may be relevant to the hosting needs of our readers. The web hosting provider offers hosting accounts that are powered by features such as huge disk space for web site data storage, sufficient amount of network bandwidth for almost any kind of web site, instant hosting account setup and activation, Google Webmaster Tools, and free Google AdWords credits. There are many more to this long list. The hosting services and solutions from the hosting corporation are specially crafted to suits all kinds of hosting needs of individual hosting accounts to high end businesses having their large ecommerce portals.
In our GoDaddy review we also touched upon the reliability and uptime aspects of the web hosting company. While it is well known that the hosting company has suffered from the negative or bad publicity due to its past performance especially in terms of poor uptime, nevertheless GoDaddy has been constantly working and to a great extent has been successful in changing the perception of its current clients and potential market. Hence, there are visible signs of improvements picking up. In our review, we found GoDaddy to be a reliable hosting partner. Because of continuous improvement plans the web hosting company has got things coming back on track. No wonder its clients have started to notice considerable difference in overall performance.
When reviewing the control panel feature in our GoDaddy review we also discovered that web hosting company does not use readymade control panel software. Instead, they have developed control panel software for their own use. We found this proprietary control panel software used by the web host not only easy to use but also very intuitive. However, if you have been using cPanel you may have a learning curve to get used to this new control panel. GoDaddy’s control panel caters to the complete range of hosting services offered by them. Hence, even though the control panel may apparently look messy, it truly isn’t difficult to master in a short while.
Finally in our GoDaddy review we tried to understand and judge the customer service quality of the web host. We found the tech support team to responsive, prompt, and reasonable in addressing concerns and queries every time we asked them. For a company with large client base, it was truly a prompt support. However, due to large volume of call they still have a relatively higher waiting time, but you can be rest assured of resolution to your problems.
Even though control panel is not the best in hosting industry, good quality support and reasonable pricing is what makes this web host a good hosting company and is responsible for making them the biggest hosting companies in the US.
