Overall Satisfaction with GoDaddy

GoDaddy is simple to use and provides privacy options for the database. They also lock domains by default as an extra layer of security and their support has always been very helpful, though rarely needed. You can quickly unlock domains when clients request transfers to another registrar and GoDaddy also offers discounted prices for the first year. As low as ninety-nine cents Canadian!
  • Reasonable prices.
  • Fast support.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Free privacy.
  • Free webpage.
  • Stop selling basic SSL certificates or at least reduce their prices.
  • Support LetsEncrypt instead.
  • Lower their annual renewal domain prices, there are cheaper options out there.
  • It has allowed me to get websites started at low cost until we are ready to launch.

The domain name registration is pretty user-friendly. I wouldn't use GoDaddy for basic SSL certificates as these certificates can be obtained for free from LetsEncrypt. GoDaddy sells these certificates at an incredible markup. I have never had an issue with domain resolution from GoDaddy and they do provide domain parking for you while you are setting up your site.

Evaluating GoDaddy and Competitors

Yes - Yes, but only briefly. GoDaddy uses low prices to lure in customers for the first year. We have taken advantage of that on several occasions for new customers. We have registered domain names at a lower price for small companies that have a small budget starting out. Then we usually transfer to another registrar that is cheaper in the long run.
