It was much cheaper than having somebody else manage everything for you.

Pros
It's relative ease and reasonable price for the product when in comparison to other products

Cons
How it was not clearly pointed out to me that I need to leave the domain with them for the first 60 days of the purchase when I wanted to move it to another host.

The benefits of the GoDaddy website builder is that it's very economical to build and design your own website.

Pros
What we like most about GoDaddy website builder is the cost. It is very cheap to build your own website and they make it very easy to navigate if you do not know what you are doing.

Cons
What I like least about this software is that I wish there was more training on the design aspects of the website creation.

GoDaddy with Wordpress is an incredible value. I would highly recommend using it for beginners or small businesses who want to save a buck or two hundred. I did struggle, however, justifying the cost after the initial year as it raised substantially.

Pros
I loved utilizing the Wordpress implementation. That, mixed with the domain I purchased through GoDaddy, made for an easy implementation. I loved that it was so cheap that first year and included the email.

Cons
Using the site builder before I discovered my love for Wordpress left a lot to be desired. While it had some features, I found it was far more expensive to use the hosting services and that I had to pay monthly for my email this way. Overall mot a great deal.

Pros
I can't think of much that I like about this software. The only thing would be if someone could not afford to do anything professional with their website and needed to get something (anything) up quickly. There are much better free options out there that are more user-friendly.

Cons
I'm not really a fan of anything with GoDaddy's name on it. I think they try to make things as cheap as possible for the customers and sacrifice value.

It was inexpensive to start up and try to get things going.

Pros
I liked the low fees that you paid for getting your website up and running. It seemed cheaper than a lot of other web hosts.

Cons
I found this program extremely hard to use. The whole thing with getting the separate domain and almost no help in trying to figure it out. I never did get it figured out because there was some kind of problem. Customer service was hostile when I asked for a refund because my website was not working properly. She was rude and condescending to me, I was just starting out and didn't know as much then, as I know now. Would not advise for a retail store that has a lot going on with it, just was not a good match for us.

GoDaddy is a good seller of host and domains, with some lags and issues in their cPannel, but definitely the SEO in this Website builder are a terrible thing. I have to say that this product is cheap in the standard edition, but EVERYTHING with GoDaddy has an aditional cost so in long term you are paying more so if you need organic traffic in your web page look other alternatives or try SEM

Pros
Easy builder and nice user interface

Cons
Terrible SEO and in long term a little expensive with aditional cost for everything

If you just want to purchase a domain, then i would totally suggest using GoDaddy. The price is not really cheap. The software is also easy to go through for people who are not a tech savvy.

Cons

Pros
Ideal for very small businesses who don't expect a lot of traffic from their site -- or those who depend more on social media sites to market their products, and just use their site as a backup information channel for their customers.

Cons
While it is cheap, you also get the quality that you paid for. There is also a steep jump in pricing after your initial subscription expires. I would suggest to go for a more credible hosting site such as Bluehost -- while it is expensive, you also get what you paid for.

GoDaddy's only redeeming quality is that it is very cheap.

Pros
It's cheap. That is about the only thing GoDaddy has going for it. The customer service is not good. It's hard to talk to the reps and they don't seem customer focused.

Cons
The sites are not attractive. The functions are hard to customize attractively. It's cheap and old fashioned in the back end. It just, overall, pales in comparison to services like Squarespace.

My experience with the product and the company has been terrible. Do yourself a favour and find other domain providers and website builders.

Pros
GoDaddy website builder is cheap and easy to use. It's cheap because it's one of the worst website builder on the market and it is easy to use because it is very limited.

Cons
The company has been flooding me with email since I have signed up for the free trials. It is impossible to unsubscribe so I had to flag as spam the many addresses that they used to contact me.

Pros
It costs significantly less than most providers out there so if your intention is to simply park a domain somewhere, it might be a good option after all.

Cons
Price aside, nothing else worked. We switched to an alternative option quite quickly because the overall service was cheaply designed, ao if you're a company trying to get things done quickly and efficiently, its not a good option.
