A Decent, but not the best Website Builder for Novice User

2018-10-22

Decent website builder, but better options available.

Pros

Hosting with GoDaddy allows for one simple place to house everything. If you're not sure on integrations of platforms like Wordpress. GoDaddy does it for you.

Cons

Not enough functionality, not as intuitive as other builders like wix, and square space.

An alternative to wix but very basic and limited

2018-10-12

Pros

A alternative to wix, gets you up with a very basic website quickly

Cons

can't expand, optimize or other things you need to do with a website. also, it goes away if you discontinue service with godaddy.

GoDaddy Go

2018-11-12

I had a pretty good experience with GoDaddy.

Pros

I used to use WIX but a co-worker turned me on to GoDaddy and although there are some things that I like on WIX, I like GoDaddy more.

Cons

More flexibility to really design your website. If there is, then it's not user friendly for me to understand how to do that.

Poor, there are better site builders.

So, once I heard about Wix, I switched to them.

Godaddy Website Builder

2018-09-25

It’s more streamlined that wix, but a little more expensive.

Pros

Easy to use, ability to start with a blank canvas, tons of options to use

Cons

It’s not cheap, Godaddy’s site is confusing, not able to add a news feed to the builder

Overall good

2018-06-06

Pros

This software is easy to use for non-tech-savvy folks. I like wix a bit better so stuck with that software long term.

Cons

I preferred free layouts and available artwork on wix so decided against this software long term.

Good website builder

2018-04-05

Pros

However, in my opinion they don't offer as many templates or options as a wix or Wordpress.

Cons

Like I said above they don't have as many options as a wix or Wordpress but it's still easy to use and works well.

Look elsewhere...

2018-11-21

Pros

I like how seamless GoDaddy's website builder is within their own platform...mostly ease of pay and ease of integration.

Cons

Sites like SquareSpace and Wix are much easier to use, especially for a novice.

Godaddy Website Builder Pros and Cons

2018-10-04

I need this product to become more robust before I use it for a corporate website and pay the monthly subscription fees.

Pros

This was convenient as the URL was purchased from Godaddy and a better tool for novice website builders compared to other apps such as Wix or WordPress.

Cons

Nice tool but needs more work. This seems like it is just being launched but when you want to build a SEO rich website it needs more places to customize.

Very Dissapointing

2019-02-10

In my experience, if you don't do your own coding think of GoDaddy as a last resort.

Pros

GoDaddy is great if you're into code and have the ability to code your own website. If so, GoDaddy is really a one stop shop and you can disregard the few star review I've given to this platform.

Cons

Nowadays, with Wix, Site123, Weebly, Shopify, Wordpress, many of which allow you to do your own coding if your so inclined, I have no idea how GoDaddy manages to stay in business.

The Best Website Builder Online

2019-02-12

After trying other website builders like GoDaddy and SquareSpace, I am 100% pro-Wix.

Pros

This is by far the most affordable and easiest to use website builder offered on the internet. I have been using Wix to build websites from scratch for nearly five years and the features continue to enhance the experience of building and hosting a website. I have built websites for churches, coffee shops, and events. There is no limit to the usefulness of the Wix website builder. It is completely customizable while maintaining a completely simple structure that can be setup by anyone with a small amount of computer knowledge.

Cons

There are a few features that I believe could enhance our experience even more, but I am completely satisfied with Wix's services as they are.

Simple small business Website development cannot be easier than this.

2018-10-01

I have been an open source advocate. The website you will make on Wix, you can easily make on WordPress at any time and even better. For the per month price you give, you can easily buy a domain and small shared hosting and make the same on any other Open Source platform. Its always good for any one time use website or for people who want to just keep their online presence. Extremely not recommended for Ecommerce.

Pros

Way better than Godaddy builder or other.

Cons

Website development is better in WordPress and its open source so quite free. Not at all good for Ecommerce or business with custom brand requirements. Extremely limited options available for customizations.

Very affordable and easy website building platform

2019-01-30

Pros

Wix is a really simple and easy to use platform that helps to build websites for different end customers. The website builder that Wix provides really helps me build websites instantly in a seamless manner. It is really simple to drag and drop various controls and the overall functionalities that this platform provides is really great. The overall user interface is also pretty simple making it convenient for building websites efficiently and immediately. Their support team is also enthusiastic and ready to help in case of any issues. They provide a premium package at a really nominal cost and that includes various other inclusions like SSL certificates, email packages, domain transfer, etc.

Cons

Wix may be a really simple interface for building websites however it is not that professional unlike other top competitors like Wordpress, GoDaddy, BigRock or HostGator.

Well rounded platform with usability issues.

2019-01-17

It allows more customization than GoDaddy platforms and is easier to use than Squarespace.

Pros

Wix creates a predictable product with a good set of features. Visitors to our site seem to have a good overall experience.

Cons

Adjusting layouts can be a task at times. Dragging and moving objects does not always respond as expected. Many plugins include additions fees to access all features.

Easy to Use, Great Visual

2018-12-18

Pros

I was previously using GoDaddy and the website builder changed and I wasn't able to easily add and remove things or customize how I wanted.

Cons

Only thing is maybe the locking action where things are stuck in positions? I'd like to be able to move a section closer to another without it being moved above. It'd be nice to not have as wide a separation I guess.

Wiz is easy enough for just about anyone.

2018-05-31

Pros

Linking my website to GoDaddy was easy.

Cons

It takes a long time to edit my website and I don’t like that every time I save my changes the box pops up asking me if I want to publish. Even when you check the box to keep that from happening it still pops up. Otherwise, I love it.

Easy Set up but...

2016-12-05

I switched from GoDaddy and they were available 24/7 but their site features were obsolete and bland which is why I went to Wix.

Pros

The ease of use. You can build a website in a day if you know the contents you want to include.

Cons

Customer Service isn't available 24/7 so if the site is down or need support, you'll have to wait until the following day.

Recommendations to others considering Wix

If you create sites from scratch, perhaps this isn't the ideal place. HTML access is limited from what I can tell so you can see the whole pages coding if you need to add specific codes in the body of site.
