GoDaddy has long been the go-to solution for beginners just starting out with web hosting. Their newly released and simplified interface, 1-click application installs, and upgraded support has them reputed as one of the top shared hosts.
Pricing for GoDaddy hosting is very economical, especially when considering the add-on features that come with its hosting plans. To save even more money, you can try a site like DealCrunch at checkout for the latest GoDaddy promo code and other special deals.
The 99.9% uptime guarantee makes it difficult for us to rank GoDaddy among the top providers of the hosting world. With that being said, for most users, 99.9% uptime is enough. If your website or application requires a higher guaranteed uptime rate, you should consider more premier (and higher priced) hosts.
Review by Zi Yang Lai from WhoIsHostingThis.com
Some background: I'm not a webmaster who is in charge of 20 websites nor am I making a living through setting up web hosting, installing WP, designing websites, etc. I am someone that started looking for a web hosting company to build a site for myself to host my photography portfolio. 1. Value - amazing. As everyone probably knows already, GoDaddy has the cheapest for everything most of the time. I signed up my Economy web hosting through an affiliate link and it only costed me $1/mo. for the first year! You will not find anything for this price for the features. 2. Uptime - 99.9%, which is today's industry standard. I've heard some bad things about GoDaddy's uptime when I was researching and before I signed up. But from my own personal experience, I have not had any downtimes at all. None (I use Pingdom to track my site's uptime). Downtime differs from server to server. But I've not experienced any downtime. Maybe I'm just lucky. 3. Features - eh… GoDaddy uses "cPanel" - in other words, their own customized version of cPanel. If this is your first time signing up for hosting, I do not think you'll care since you will get used to it pretty quickly. I did try the standard cPanel but I find that I actually liked GoDaddy's version much better. It looks much organized to me and easier to find things. 4. Support - this is the one thing that GoDaddy sucks at. They representatives do not seem to know much about web hosting. As a newbie, I learned most, if not all, about hosting, WP, SQL databases, etc. from Google or YouTube. I have not tried out their other services like SSL certificates or reseller hosting.

Pr0s: -It offers the cheapest service in the market of hosting. It can get you started with little money. I recommend their services to small companies and Entrepreneurs. -Preferred choice for countries with no dollar currency (which is my personal case Venezuela). If you are the kind of person to find it a bit hard to get your hands in a few dollars, then godaddy can definitely help you out. Its marketing campaigns offer enough coupons to get your first domain for free + the cheapest hosting for a whole year. The cheapest sale I have personally got is 12,18$ one year hosting with controlpanel + a free .com domain -There are many users of godaddy so it is easy to find help by googling CONs: -Since its such a big company, then your little business is not going to be at the top list of godaddy's concerns, however they do offer a quality support by phone -According to many blogs it is not the fastest one around. But for your startup company it should suffice

Godaddy is the best web hosting so far I have used. Its price is the most affordable than all others. It’s best for new users. It has one flaw and that is his support. They are not quickly response.
Review by Derek Lee from WebHostingReviewJam.com
Most of us know GoDaddy as the place to buy your domains, then once you get the domains, you head off to your preferred hosting company. But the thing is, you don’t need to go elsewhere. You actually have the option to have them host your site.But how do they fare? Are they up to par with the seasoned veterans? What are the features and more importantly, how much does it cost?We are here to provide you some quick answers to that so that you can decide for yourself if you would like to give GoDaddy a try.

GoDaddy is the winner
4 out of 16 times.
GoDaddy is a good value in the hosting space — boasting a very low cost for their shared hosting services and long-standing credibility in the domain hosting industry. With hosting available for as little as a dollar per month, it's hard to beat their price point and they recently revamped their user interface to improve the customer experience from a usability perspective. The support they offer is round-the-clock service by an award-winning team — featuring 24/7 server monitoring and an emphasis on anti-hacking measures. Though their uptime guarantee isn't outstanding, their page load speeds are industry-leading. All in all, GoDaddy is a reliable option to accommodate your hosting needs.
