When it comes to GoDaddy, it’s a well known website hosting service, quite popular in fact. It’s time to take a look at the benefits and headaches that come along with this service. GoDaddy is a very cheap service that also offers an unlimited bandwidth, which means an unlimited amount of visitors on the client’s website at any time during the day, this can however limit the amount of content you can store on your website which can become very tedious. Web hosting is also another well known service when people think of GoDaddy, many would agree that having one company manage your domain name, email, and hosting can make life a lot easier. The down time for a website to be brought back has greatly improved since the early 2000’s, also GODaddy’s customer service has also made great strides and efforts to improve their customer service image.
Now for the headaches that can come along with GoDaddy. They were the only website hosting service that supported the bill that was almost passed in 2011 that did not fully respect the privacy of their clients and have engaged in unethical business practices in the past, this is due to the fact that they are a big brand and have a big brand mentality. The GoDaddy website hosting service is so large that because they service so many clients this also restricts the clients on how much memory, databases, and emails that can be accessed, even though they boast about offering unlimited storage. If you decide to leave GoDaddy, and join up with another hosting service or marketing firm, they will make it very hard for their clients to say goodbye. In 2017 this is still very true, GoDaddy will make this process very time consuming and mistakes will be made to ensure that problems will happen with you website to try and bring the past client back into the fold, so to speak. So do your research about any and all of these website hosting services. You are the heart and soul of your business, they shouldn’t be allowed to alter that truth.
