GoDaddy Review

GoDaddy General Impression

GoDaddy.com is the world's largest domain name registrar and is the flagship company of The Go Daddy Group, Inc.

The Go Daddy Group of companies also includes Wild West Domains, Inc., a reseller of domains and domain-related products and services; Domains by Proxy(R), a private registration service; Starfield Technologies, a research and development affiliate; and Blue Razor Domains, a membership-based discount registrar.

As an ICANN-accredited domain registrar, Go Daddy has more names under management than any other registrar, offers products at prices up to 70% less than the competition and supports them all with world-class 24/7 live customer service.

We are the sole developer and proprietor of our technology, do not license any products from others, and do not outsource or offshore any of our operations. This enables us to provide better support and ensure the most advanced and competitively-priced products and services available today.

Founded by Bob Parsons in 1997, The Go Daddy Group has grown to include more than 10 million domains under management. We offer a complete product line, including comprehensive hosting solutions, Web site creation tools, Secure SSL certificates, personalized email with spam and anti-phishing filtering, e-commerce tools and more.

Go Daddy is widely recognized for its success, having been ranked #8 on the 2004 Inc. 500 list of the nation's fastest-growing privately held companies; #20 on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 (growing 8,274 percent!); and having won the CNET Editor's Choice award in 2001, the Name Intelligence Largest Net Gain Award in 2002, 2003 and 2005; the Name Intelligence Users' Choice Award in 2005 as well as the #1 Best Overall Registrar in 2003. Go Daddy also won the Arizona Corporate Excellence Award for fastest growing privately-held company in 2003 and Most Innovative Large Company in 2004.

Go Daddy has become the world's #1 choice for domains by providing innovative, competitively-priced products, delivering the highest quality customer service, and by always appreciating and listening to its customers!

GoDaddy Price & Cost Effectiveness

You are probably wondering how they can charge as much as 70% less than our competition and still be in business, right?

First of all, they run a tight ship. They choose their promotions carefully and ensure every advertising dollar pays for itself; they streamline their systems and billing processes; they don't have any frills (like the $5,000.00 office chairs of some of the now bankrupt dot-coms). They also don't waste money on unnecessary things like toll-free telephone numbers that are often abused anyway.

Second, they are straight shooters. There are no tricks in what they do, just good, old-fashioned, reliable business principles. Quite often they are asked if they bait their customers with low rates and then charge high renewal prices. Anybody that expects them to do that will be disappointed. They believe in the old saying, "You can shear a sheep many times but you can only skin it once." So, your renewal rates will be no higher than the rate you paid when you initially registered your domain name, or what their registration rates were when you transferred your domain name to them (the only exceptions would be if the price the registry charges us increased, or if you took advantage of a limited-time, special price. And if the registry increases their cost, yours will go up only by the amount their did, never more).

What's the end result of all this? Well, they are happy to tell you that they are a small but profitable company that expects to be in business for many years to come. All this, of course, is due to value-conscious customers like you.

GoDaddy.com delivers superior value. Here's how:
1. Guaranteed renewal price.
You'll never pay more to renew your domain name than the rate you paid when you initially registered it, or what our registration rate was when you transferred. (The only exceptions would be if the price the registry charges us increased, or if you took advantage of a limited-time, special price. If the registry increases our cost, yours will go up only by the amount ours did, never more.)

2. Risk-free, money-back guarantee transfers.
No matter how hard they try, a domain transfer occasionally fails. This is usually due to your former registrar trying to keep your money, even though it is legally required to comply with your transfer request. With Go Daddy, you're protected. First, the Rapid Transfer System saves time and eliminates errors by extracting critical information automatically. You no longer need to find it and type it in yourself. Second, their Transfer Concierge team is trained, dedicated, and available to you 24/7 with personal, caring assistance. And finally, they believe that you paid your money and that you have every right to expect that transfer to occur, no matter who is at fault. So we've made your transfers absolutely risk free and fully refundable. If your transfer to GoDaddy.com fails for any reason, they will let you know and refund your money. Guaranteed.

3. More FREE, value-added services with every domain.
At Go Daddy, they are proud to have you as a customer and want you to get the most out of your domain ownership. So they give you all of the following FREE with every domain purchase: Quick Blog, Hosting with Web site builder; Complete Email ($9.95/yr value!); change of registrant; parked or "For Sale" page; domain locking; status alerts; domain forwarding; domain masking; total DNS control; and 100 email forwards.

4. Consistently lower prices on everything we offer.
It starts with low-cost domains. But it extends to everything else they develop (right there, in-house) and offer. Like hosting accounts, spam-protected email accounts; domain services, utility software and more. And they are constantly developing more, better, lower-cost ways to improve your domain ownership, Internet- and PC-experience.

5. Best-in-industry live customer support, 24 / 7.
This is a point of pride for them. You deserve the best, and they won't settle for providing anything less. They are available to you either by phone, web board, or email 24 hours a day, everyday. Many of their competitors don't even provide a telephone number for you to call!

6. Fast, easy bulk domain transfers and registrations
Their super-low prices, intuitive tools, Rapid Transfer System(TM) and concierge support make it a snap.

7. Just-right, affordable hosting options.
They host all of their customer sites on their own secure servers. Most of their competitors job their hosting out to the lowest bidder. If you ever have an issue with your Go Daddy hosting, just call them and they will be on it immediately. With the competition, there's no telling who you should call.

8. Superior domain search and management tools.
Their domain search and portfolio management tools are second to none. Once you've registered your domain names, just log in at "Manage My Domains" and select domains to modify, either individually or in bulk. Apply your changes or add additional services – it's fast and easy.

9. Fierce protection of your personal information.
They do their best to prevent your data from being "mined." And unlike some of their competitors who will happily sell your information to anyone for a price, they will never under any circumstance make it available to third parties, unless legally required to do so. (Please do understand, though, that information in the Whois database is public domain. They do everything possible to prevent screen access to it, but under certain circumstances it can be obtained.)

10. Unique, valuable and innovative software and services.
At Go Daddy, you can get everything you need to make the most out of your domain ownership and Internet experience. They offer private "unlisted" registrations; Traffic Blazer (search engine registration) c-Site (copyright application); Internet- and PC-privacy and security software; merchant accounts; and more.

"The web is maturing, and so are us designers: welcome to the LongTail! I started out with GoDaddy after suffering with "upscale" hosters in the beginning years who were too complicated and expensive and unresponsive for my noobie needs. Now that I've got some expertise, 20+ domains, and am making money, GoDaddy's features allow me to do what I need to. I've graduated to Adobe CS packages, and GoDaddy's tech support has just what I need for quick response for the tools I'm using. You can't beat a host whose PHP and MySQL works out of the box on the Unix platform. All my hardware is Apple-based, and its seamless with GoDaddy's products. Once you get past the learning curve in this business, GoDaddy's got everything you need! Check out my site:rcsinc-online.com."
William Randall<wmrandall@rcsinc-online.com> / www.rcsinc-online.com

"As a web developer I have provided Wild West domain (Go Daddy) products for three years. I can tell you for a fact that the control panels and support are miles above many other hosting providers. I have used other providers in the past and I have current customers who already have their site hosted somewhere else. With many of these companies I have seen simple issues that have taken DAYS to resolve and many times email support is the ONLY option. With Wild West Domains, if I have a support issue or I just have a stupid question, I pick up the phone and minutes later a friendly knowledgeable person helps me out. And if he or she does not know the answer - they will go find someone who does. I've been a happy customer so far."

They are all to be commended for their efforts."

Unless you're prepared to spend hours and hours and hours in agonizing frustration STAY AWAY from this company! The saying, " you get what you pay for" was never more true than dealing with GoDaddy. They may be cheap but you are just throwing your money away and setting yourself up for endless frustration if you chose this company to host your website. This is especially true if you opt for their so-called "user friendly" Website Tonite. This program is so bad that even this company's own techs can't figure it out. I suppose it works great if you only intend to add a little text to the template but if you try to add photos or use any of the offered features you will find that this program is a bad joke. Don't bother calling tech support as they have no toll-free number and you will be put on hold forever. If you finally do talk to a technician they will give you the same song and dance over and over which is: " we've never had this problem before and we don't know how to fix it ". Yeah right.

I' ve been trying to get my website finished and online FOR EIGHT MONTHS but it's impossible due to all of the bugs in the program. Once I went to my site and someone elses website was there! And every time I go back to it something else is screwed up. No explanation given, they just say they don't know what happened.

I should have listened to the other bad reviews I read about GoDaddy but I was lured by the low price. Live and learn. Trust me on this one, ANY OTHER COMPANY on the planet would be better than this one.
