I’ve been hosting this website on GoDaddy for five months now and I’ve been incredibly happy with the experience. Server uptime has been reliable, the administrative interface is very smooth and easy to user, and at $4.95/month, the price is right.
Something I hadn’t realized until this morning, though, is the suite of applications they offer. Open Source apps and frameworks such as WordPress, Moodle, Drupal, Joomla and a collection of content management systems, wikis and eComerce solutions are all available from GoDaddy with every hosting account.
Once logged on to your account, one need only enter a few bits of information such as admin account login/password, and the location within the domain where each app should reside. GoDaddy takes care of the rest and lets you know when the process is complete. Now, of course each of these apps is something you could install and configure yourself with some work. But where else are you going to find a system that gets a WordPress blog or Moodle server set up correctly and running in a sweet 5 minutes.
GoDaddy provides an all-around great web hosting resource for everyone, from basic users making family websites, to advanced users responsible for large servers and powerful applications.
