I Use It For Accounting

2017-09-15

I like the accounting tool however and am happy with how it works. I import transactions directly from my bank and Freshbooks (my invoicing system) and it tells me my estimated tax payments.

Pros

Integrates easily with Freshbooks and Shoeboxed.

Cons

It doesn't import bank data from all banks.

Recommendations to others considering GoDaddy Website Builder

There's probably other accounting software out there that works just as well but at this pricepoint it's hard to beat. If I were starting over, I would do better research but since my content has been in this software for so long, I'm reluctant to leave at this price.

The one-stop shop for domain names

2021-02-10

Renewal are easy and the dashboard is a great overview of what is going on in your account.

Pros

GoDaddy's domains management is great, allowing users to manage domains and zones files at the same place.

Cons

Account delegation in GoDaddy is still hard to understand and not working as expected most of the time. The huge amount of ads for additional products is also very distracting.

GoDaddy Website Builder a great value for the money. Super easy to use and great support!

2018-03-09

Great support and easy to use builder.

Pros

Plenty of professional design themes and drag and drop functionality for easy changes. Easy to use UI. Ability to backup and create backup points for easy restore while you grow which I haven't seen anywhere else.

Cons

Separate system if you want e-commerce tools means very limited functionality. Mobile display is very limited and a step down from the desktop display.

A Decent WYSIWYG Editor

2018-07-31

An easy-to-use, drag and drop, What You See Is What You Get website editor.

Pros

The templates that are offered are already optimized to be responsive on mobile devices. The drag-and-drop user interface is very easy to navigate.

Cons

Unfortunately, the WYSIWYG nature of the editor makes it rather clunky and hard to customize. It's always unclear how an element will appear on different resolutions and different devices. Also, most of the themes in the theme library are downright ugly and out of date.

Easy and Affordable

2020-05-24

Very good and recommend. Easy to get started and we had a site up and running in less than 2 hours.

Pros

Having complete control over the design and layout was a plus for us.

Cons

Learning how to customize templates and import custom pages or pages we already had done on other sites.

Excellent Domain Registar

2018-07-03

Pros

I love domain management tools and their DNS management as well.

Cons

Too many attempts to sell you their supplemental services such as hosting, privacy registration and etc. Also, they call often just to confirm that "you won't need anything else" :)

Old School

2021-01-05

GoDaddy has a third party to create their stuff.

Pros

Rather simple setup to cover all needed requirements, website creation and email for example

Cons

As the website got a bit more sophisticated I found that their application was lacking with features to allow more flexibility and professionalism in creating a great design.

I've been using GoDaddy for 10 years without a single problem

2018-06-26

Pros

GoDaddy was one of the first organisation that made it not only possible, but easy for normal non-tech people and businesses to register a domain name.

Cons

Over the years GoDaddy have made improvements to the user interface of their domain management panel.

A must have the budding entrepreneur

2018-12-05

I have just gotten started so I don't have stats to report. But it has worked perfectly for my purposes.

Pros

Adding your own images is easy with the drag-and-drop feature. the auto-save feature is great so you don't lose your work.

Cons

I felt like some of the features could have been explained a little bit better in an easier to find location.

GoDaddy is emerging as a strong player in web building.

2018-05-16

Pros

Initially I found the design and building tools lacking compared to competitors, but their recent evolution has been a huge improvement.

Cons

Because there is more going on in GoDaddy, with buying, selling, auctioning domains etc it can get confusing.

Godaddy Is Best For Buying And Managing Domains

2019-04-21

Godaddy has made domain management easy for both myself and most of my web design clients and that's why they are number one in my ratings for domains in particular.

Pros

I have been using them for 12 years in my web design business and still think that they are probably the best around in terms of domain purchasing, domain registration, quick name server configuration, and multiple domain changes at the same time.

Cons

Godaddy's interface can be a bit daunting especially for some of the more complicated technical things one might do with a hosting account or a domain.

Decent Website Builder

2020-01-13

I haven't had a problem. Any time I have had additional questions, I could either find the answer on YouTube or contact GoDaddy support for immediate help.

Pros

It is pretty much drag and drop.

Cons

The software itself is fine. It's the pricing that gets you after the 1-2 years, depending on your initial purchase. It can be quite shocking.

Used to create my website

2021-03-09

Fairly good. I get compliments on my website often, but it does not get much traffic and I wonder whether a wordpress alternative may have worked better?

Pros

Easy to use to set up a website quickly. Drag and drop editing and nice simple templates that look good on web and mobile devices.

Cons

The price is a bit high, and I am not sure why, but my website gets very little traffic. This is frustrating after two years. It is difficuly to make edits to the SEO

Great Builder With Plenty Features, But Unaffordable

2018-12-18

Pros

GoDaddy Website Builder was very feature rich and simple to use. Drag and drop functionality is always a plus when using web building software, and GoDaddy particularly had some of the simplest features to use.

Cons

The price was simply unaffordable, as with other packages that offer drag and drop building with their hosting packages.

Using GoDaddy website builder allows the user to have one dashboard for all their web design needs.

Pros

Even if you have no experience, you can design an eye-catching website in very little time.

Cons

The websites are not as modern as some other products, but GoDaddy has improved over the years and they offer a high quality product for the price.

Does the job but not the best

2018-11-28

I found it fairly easy to use but I found the output to be not very impressive.

Pros

It comes bundled with the domain and hosting you buy so having everything under one umbrella is possibly the only pro this website builder has that's going for it.

Cons

The websites built on this builder very obviously look too basic and like "drag-and-drop" websites.

This will never be a substitute for a professional website

2018-02-09

Pros

It's drag and drop so almost no learning curve, it is user friendly and instant.

Cons

It is a pretty terrible product overall, the sites are not good code-wise, it is all auto generated WYSIWYG. Do not recommend.

Great start for Website building

2018-10-19

Pros

GUI is similar to most GUI, drag and drop interfaces with a few template pages to choose from.

Cons

When using the software, it came across clunky and unpolished in some areas. The ability to be precise in the code was difficult for more advanced users.

Quick and Easy way to get on the web

2017-12-14

Pros

Lots of templates to pick from, easy drag and drop interface. Easy to upload files and create content.

Cons

Classic case of the more they give you the more you want. You'll start wanting things that are not part of the basic package so you can upgrade for more money. But the basic package is so robust that may be all you need.
