GoDaddy rating is based upon following reviews
By: Bilal Sulemani
Scammers, i bought a domain for amount 1050 and they gave a free access to webbuilder. Once i published the website after few days they told me that i bought hosting with marketing plans, which i never did. Despite i informed the live chat representative I'm not interested in marketing etc i was charged for that and amount was deducted automatically. She told me they will unpublish my website if I'll not pay for marketing. I said no problem unpublish it but they deducted amount without my consent. Their plan are too expensive as compared to other competitors.
Intersting part i don't require any marketing. They showed me 400/month and charged 1300/month. 11948 in total but deducted amount 12732
No.1 online Fraud,
Additionally, live option vanished since they deducted amount. Now only option is call them, which is too expensive to reach out. You can't remove your card from their website so they can deduct any amount whenever and how much they want. They are swindlers better stay away from them.
Godaddy managed wordpress has limitations
By: Moin Zaidi
I have Godaddy WordPress hosting for my website and it used to work fine but the main issue was I didn't have any option to add more domains to my hosting panel. All I could do was buy a new similar package which would be expensive because I have 8 WordPress domains right now. I now have two web hostings, one on Hostinger and the other one on liquidweb cloud and all my websites are running even though I have pretty decent traffic combined.
So if you are starting with one WordPress website then Godaddy WordPress hosting is certainly a good option but as you grow, you will need to consider other options.
Direct webmail login for Godaddy
I had some issues with my webmail page access using my own domain name. I contacted Godaddy to find out that it is apparently caused by incorrect domain records. Anyways I found the direct link to the Godaddy webmail system which i thought I should share to help others incase of similar issues. Here is the direct link to Godaddy webmail
Other than that, I am pretty much satisfied with their web hosting.
Completely legit web hosting
I am using godaddy since 2011 and apart from their high prices, i have faced no issues. Their web hosting is reliable and support is also pretty good. Godaddy also offers domain registration though i dont keep my domains with them.
Big Name Big Trouble
I signed up with GoDaddy due to their big name. After a few days for signing up, my account got suspended and they asked me to send copies of my card which I used to pay them. I sent them the photos of both sides of my card and then my hosting account started to work again but during that suspension time, I lost a lot of traffic and revenue anyways I still ignored it a bit and thought my hard time is over.
But after a few months, I got an email from GoDaddy saying that my hosting account is being migrated to another server and after that, my website got offline. I immediately contacted them but every time they said that the issue will be resolved soon without any result in the end. I called them without any response, had to be on hold for like 3 hours but still no response. Contacted various support personals and everyone of them said that the issue will be resolved but nothing changed, I waited for a week and then restored my old backup on another hosting and changed my Domain DNS to finally make my website live again. Never again will I give them a chance. If you have no issues with them so far, you are lucky, once you face an issue, you will regret.
