Will it be the first home of your blog?
Godaddy is mostly known as, Domain name registrar. But now Godaddy also has its footprints in the hosting services. They’re offering secure hosting, amazing speed, hassle-free support and every single feature that is need of a WordPress site.
One of most think that I like about Godaddy is its initial price.
They have a very fair hosting price just $1/month and Wait… They also offer a FREE domain name when we buy hosting for one year.
In less than $15(Price + TAX) you get a FREE domain name + Superb Managed Hosting
Does it happen anywhere?
Because I’ve got experienced Godaddy self, So now I’ve got an honest review & experience to share it with you.
Explore Godaddy features & their services, what they offer use in their plans and etc…
Every service starts with their feature, what kind of features they are offering us.
In case of Godaddy Hosting, they are providing quality features that are made for a blog beginner to professional website developers.
Godaddy hosting has a wide range of features to build and manages a site. For a WordPress site, GoDaddy has some best features like Automatic wordpress update, daily backups and malware scanners.
Godaddy user dashboard is very user-friendly dashboard ever. Your Domain, Hosting and other GoDaddy products can be managed from a single web page.
And other vital stuff like help, customer support, knowledge base and your Godaddy account from its dashboard. Office and Email services can also be managed from this dashboard.
To configure any service, just click on manage button that is present in front of service.
Godaddy WordPress Hosting dashboard like others hosting cPanel, if you’re familiar with cPanel you find this dashboard totally different. Here you can see your plan details, products related to hosting, and other useful hosting info.
You can also check updates of Plugins or WordPress version. And if new update available, you can update it from Godaddy hosting dashboard no need to visit on WordPress dashboard.
With very less configuration option Godaddy hosting dashboard is a real kind of Managed WordPress hosting dashboard. However, you get very less control on your website but you can access your FTP and Database by clicking on view button. To connect your site via FTP there is a need of an FTP Client. But you can access phpMyAdmin database by just clicking on the view button.
One more thing about Godaddy hosting dashboard, It also checks the performance of wordpress site and gives a score out of 100. Share the optimization score of static files like CSS, JS and images.
My site has got 80 scores out of 100 yeahhhh… 😎
Godaddy Managed Hosting is already optimized for the wordpress site and give a blazing speed.
During this time period, I took some of speed & performance test on Pingdom speed tool.
In each test, I found really amazing loading speed, without any single optimization even images are also not optimized and it gives me better results.
Without doing any single optimization that is the speed of Godaddy Managed Hosting. that is really awesome. In San Jose USA test in just load under msec 😯
I remember when I set-up my site I have selected USA server. If we use CDN on this we can improve the site speed more. And cache plugins that I mostly don’t like can also improve site performance and speed.
Godaddy has 4 affordable price plans, The range of the price plan is suitable for a blog beginner or a pro developer.
Well, I am a blogger so I chose the basic plan of GoDaddy to take a ride of Godaddy WordPress Hosting.
If you’re also thinking about starting a blog on GoDaddy, then you can also go with the Godaddy basic plan. In this case, in just few dollars you will get both .COM Domain and Managed Hosting.
You can go with another pan that is perfect for your requirements. Each plan comes with different features, so maybe you need a different than me.
If you visit on GoDaddy site, it will show you 4 price plans as shown in the image with 42% off discount. but earlier I said Godaddy price plan start at $1/month.
Am I lying?
Below is another image of Godaddy price plans, here you can see 3 different plans and basic plan starting at just $1/month with 88% discount. 😆
How I did this?
This is not a magic, I’ve got a link with a coupon code and I’ve shared it below with you that will automatically apply a discount coupon and gives you 88 % of discount instead of 44% on price plan. 😈
After the Discount coupon apply you got more discount than now. Now we have 3 options to select a plan.
Godaddy basic plan is suitable & best for new website learners or who has low traffic on the website.
If you’re thinking that 25000/monthy visitors is low, then I clear you achieving this amount of visitors in blogging is not easy if you’re beginning in blogging. Do you know on Siteground for the same amount of visitors, you need to pay $5.95/month.
The basic plan is best for:
Delux Plan is best If you’re a pro blogger and have a high traffic WordPress traffic. Another speciality of this plan it comes with an integrated SEO plugin that helps you to increase the site SEO. And achieve a good rank on SERPs
The Delux Plan best for:
You can host 2 websites on the ultimate plan, It also provides an SSL certificate for one site 😐 and has integrated SSL plugin for both sites.
The Ultimate plan best for:
Server Uptime is the important term for a hosting provider. Godaddy host your WordPress website at VPS Dedicated server that is perfect for always up. With GoDaddy, your site is always up and your visitor doesn’t face any downtime that is good for SEO and SERP.
To check Godaddy server uptime I added my site to Uptime Robot, to monitor my server performance.
Here is the result of my 3-week monitoring:
And Uptime Robot shows me a fake report of Godaddy server uptime. In 504 hours there is no downtime. 🙄
Godaddy server uptime is really good, your site visitors never face downtime issue and they can access the site without facing any server problems.
I found Godaddy is really sincere about hosting. They use many security tactics to keep our site safe and beware of malicious content.
Godaddy has got 6 strategies to keep a site safe. They scan our WordPress codes, run bots on our site, do automatic updates and also scan WordPress plugins.
Because hackers can inject some malicious codes, malware in the external WordPress file(like Theme, Plugin), or via accessing your FTP. Then can deface the site or steal sensitive info.
To prevent from this GoDaddy scanner, found the malware and self-destroyed them.
Like this other features are:
Standing guard – GoDaddy team monitor the site continues to protect the site from DDoS attack
Godaddy Bots – GoDaddy bots keep away fake traffic & request.
Spammers, beware! – This security feature keeps away spam comment from the site.
Automatic updates – Whenever new update of WordPRess and plugins available, GoDaddy self-update them so your site keeps safe and clean.
Pre-screened plugins – Godaddy has got scanned thousand of plugins and so you never have to worry whether you’re installing a well-behaved plugin.

This is my review of Godaddy WordPress Hosting, that I write after try Godaddy wordPress Hosting for 2 months on a new blog.
” Even the beautifully glowing moon has got spots ” – Debasmita
” Every Perfect hosting come with some drawbacks ” – Divesh 😉
I find two drawbacks on Godaddy hosting.
But these cons have some soln:
First Godaddy doesn’t provide SSL certificate for Basic and Delux Plan and in 2018 or further year without SSL mean without HTTPS your site looking so wired. To get Godaddy SSL you have to choose Ultimate Plan that has worth of $9.99/month. Mean for SSL you need to pay a big amount.
You can also get SSL from others.
Yes! you can purchase or get SSL certificates for your domain name from other sites. There are a lot of sites who provide free or Paid SSL certificate. you can upload the SSL certificate on your site and Add HTTPS at the beginning of the site. 😎
On the other hand, the renewal price of hosting is high, Godaddy gives us $1/month and FREE Domain only for one time. But still, if you have some doubts.
Search for it more, research more you won’t find Managed WordPress Hosting like Godaddy who is offering reliable Hosting at this price with such valuable features.
At the first time in my life, I bought the hosting for 6 months for my college startup, in next 3 months we are abundant. Yeah still our financial condition was not so good but due to some unwanted reason we didn’t work on our startup for next 3 months and finally, so I don’t renew my hosting and we lost our empire.
After some time I regret why I don’t buy this for one year?
Just for few bucks, I had lost an opportunity 😥
If you’ve got a low budget or want to give a try or to believe in yourself you can choose Godaddy Hosting.
Most of the people know GoDaddy as Domain registrar but now Godaddy is arising as a shiny star in web hosting. It has various features to give a power to your site, security option of Godaddy is also impressive.
However, this Managed Hosting has a lot of features with some drawbacks.
But if you wanna:
Go with Godaddy and build your dreams.
If you wanna start a Blog:
Then, Mind taking a look at my previous article that has:
After 7 years of Internet meeting, 3 years of web technology experience, 2 unsuccessful Blogs, 1 failed youtube channel, 1 StartUp failure and 3 days of internship here I am writing.
And one day definitely, you and I will be Web Tech Preneur.
