Ranked 10th from 215 Website Builders

Overview

A Large Company Who Could Do Better

We have all heard of GoDaddy – whether its for TV ad campaigns, online advertising or through controversial news stories that have hit the media. They are a large company with 17 million customers and 71 million domain names sold at competitive prices. However, their main focus is not their website builder. While their website builder works, it has limited features and templates on offer and they don’t offer a free package. Godaddy paid packages are very well priced with a few extra things thrown in.

Why Choose Godaddy.com?

  • Easy to use
  • Community and forum support
  • Make money with your website
  • Daily deals and discounts
  • Great price compared to competitors

Godaddy Website Builder Review

I've called several times to try to find out a workaround for this and no amount of escalating my issue would work. The way the v7 template formats the urls are just different enough to mess up all your backlinks from here to infinity. V.6 treats the

V7 is by far are the worst website builder I have ever experienced. I want to puke whenever I'd have to go in and use it. if they force and migration from v6 to v7, I'm moving to another company. I may go with square space, or 1 and 1. I think that w

Godaddy Website Builder Review

This review incorrectly states GoDaddy has page level password protection, but as of July 2014 that is incorrect. Website Builder v.6 had this feature, but it was lost when they "upgraded" to v.7. This was a necessary feature for me building a webs

Godaddy Website Builder Review

I designed websites with ver. 6 which was limited but at least worked. With ver. 7 features have been removed and designing a usable site has become impossible. Avoid GoDaddy at all costs.

The functionality of Go Daddy's SeO optimization part of its site should be listed at 0-2. What good is a pretty site if you are lost in la la land and can't get page rank. In my book Go Daddy went from being one of the top web builder do it yourself

Some people want to go cheap. And that is fine however this website builder is really bad because customer services will blame you and your computer for certain items not working. Then they will blame your network, then after that they will blame the

I will only use go daddy for purchasing products such as domains and maybe hosting but other services are just eye candy with no real mechanics..

We have been GoDaddy clients for more than six years, and yet one sunny day our website went down. After four days of repeated calls to GoDaddy and hearing a bunch of rubbish in response, we are trying to get our files back - and they are telling me

Templates

4.8/5

GoDaddy Has Tons Of Colorful Design Templates & Pre-Made Web Templates

Selection  Godaddy has about a million and a half templates in total, as each template option comes in a range of different colors.
There are also 120 pre-made websites, offering a self-containted, finished structure to add content; you just tweak a bit here or there so that your company name is onsite and your details are all accounted for.
Everything else is there, which is why you can complete your website rapidly. However, most of the templates are, shall we say, outdated.  They just look kind of old and tacky to me. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder right?

Customization  You can do a lot, but there are some irritating issues with HTML. As in, any HTML, if you try to play around with it, it might work if you are really lucky.  However, Godaddy offers a fantastic range of images

Multimedia Godaddy has done pretty well in this area, with a built-in photo album and video, audio, animation, which are all very well done.

No Free Package But Decent Features With Top Tiers

Godaddy has gradually improved its web builder service since its first launch. However, it still needs to fine tune and upgrade certain areas in order to compete with the likes of Wix, Weebly and Squarespace. For example, you won’t find a free plan but you can benefit from a low cost paid plan at £1 per month, which is profitable but does come with its own set of problems.
The drawback is you get limited perks or features, unless you pay the top end package. However the top package does offer some incredibly good features for a very good price. The top package offers business themes, strong eCommerce capabilities, SEO packages, good bandwidth and storage specs, and a handy 1 year SSL certificate that you wont find at many other website builders.

Ease of Use

4.5/5

Easy, Professional and No Special Skills Required

The Godaddy Website Tonight control panel has a lot of components which are not present in other website editors.
This may seem daunting at first, but once your choose your template or a pre-built website to work with and modify, it sails  smoothly.

The drag and drop functionality is easy to use and there are other tools like the photo galleries and other web management tools make the job a lot more easier.
Godaddy offers a secure hosting platform with full back-up in case of disaster and if you’re a newbie, you can use their hosting concierge to put you through the process and help with your website hosting.

Support

4.5/5

Godaddy offers phone, live chat and a data base with a variety of introductory videos. However, there’s no email support. Live chat works pretty well but sounds a bit promotional.

    Pricing

    4.5/5

    How Much Does It Cost?

    Other than the fact that there is no free package, GoDaddy offers domains that work on any site at a competitive price, as well as a load of “free” features (like Advertising). All plans are reasonably priced and include website hosting as well as 24/7 customer support. The Business Plus plan provide good value for your money, as it includes some advanced capabilities like email marketing, social integration and optimized speed.
