Pros

Usually the challenges are on our end, and it's great to work with such a good a customer service team. They are much better than others we've tried to work with in the past.
Website to landing page this is the quick and easy way to accomplish getting online. You can deploy quick, responsive, and stunning websites in a matter of hours.
And I'm proud to say, I won't be switching anytime soon. The help that is available is incredible, the fact they will help you customize your website and help with logos, is outstanding.

Pros

I find it truly amazing how little work I need to put in to make an amazing website. You will have people think the website was made by a professional not by yourself in a short amount of time.
I found WIX through an advertisement that claimed that the software was easy to use to create a website for yourself and it's true. It's easy to use and also fun to use.
You will like Wix and I'm sure with a little time and effort and your creative juices flowing, you can create a spectacular website that is user friendly and your customers would appreciate.

Cons

I was confused , but switched over only to find out it was more retail driven, no blog, and no basic info page showing up in the beginning.
They changed it to an online version only which I hated so I left them.
Gives different messages from different employees. Very confusing software - extremely rude employees & keep jacking up prices.

Cons

Their policies are ridiculous and customer service knowledge and etiquette are terrible. I have to share the latest bizarre policy I've run into.
Sometimes the apps cost money or you have limited amount of the app you can use before it costs money. This is frustrating when you start using it and then realize you are stuck.
The only problem that I have faced is that trying get to different pages of your website while in editing mode is confusing.

It's easy to use and very helpful when trying to build your website. 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.

Go Daddy Has Not Been Able to Keep Up with Competition

Reviewed 5 years ago

Poor, there are better site builders.

Pros

It's easy to use and reasonably priced.

Cons

I have 5 or so active websites. When I started building sites for my companies many years ago, I used Yahoo!. Yahoo! was good, but they stopped offering that service so I switched to Go Daddy. The Go Daddy templates not only are limited, but they don't look very nice. So, once I heard about Wix, I switched to them. I will admit, Wix is not perfect and I think that there is still room for a better competitor in this space or for Wix to improve. Because Wix has gained some moat in this space, they have been stubborn on pricing. As a result, I decided to check out Go Daddy again recently. While they have somewhat improved their offering, it is still behind the competition and even if it is a little cheaper than Wix, not worth it.

Great Customer Service, Less Design Savvy

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Incredible customer service, available by phone. With most customer service offerings moving online to bots, GoDaddy still has live individuals answering phones. We migrated to Squarespace for design purposes but GoDaddy's team was incredibly helpful with that migration and not at all resentful about losing the business.

Cons

The actual aesthetic design options leave something to be desired when compared to other platforms like Squarespace, Wix and Shopify. For basic business needs, it totally suffices but for a competitive retail business, aesthetics are better on other platforms.

Using GoDaddy to build a website

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I always thought GoDaddy was only a domain delivery, however when searching for a Wix or template website builder, I saw that GoDaddy was a player in the game now. I chose GoDaddy based on pricing and trying out the website builder tool. It has some nice basic features to build a site for someone with no real experience.

Cons

During the process of building a website, I did notice that there are a few frustrating things as compared to the Wix website builder. The builder is slow and takes time to refresh, there are a few bugs that need to be fixed. There are limited layout options and color applications if I want to brand my site with intention and not use it out of the box. The domain purchase linked to the builder is a little clunky as well on the billing end.

Godaddy Website Builder Pros and Cons

Reviewed 6 years ago

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. The ability to add custom pictures is there but their needs to be more user friendly. Also did not seem clear how to add videos and what size would run best.

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.

GoDaddy is not just domain names: review of GoDaddy Website Builder

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

GoDaddy has simple drag-and-drop editing capabilities, and a good amount of control with of pre-filled ADI. The editor is easy to use, but there are fewer options available compared to platforms like Wix. Someone who needs something very simple may find this a nice go-to because they won't be overwhelmed with bells and whistles. Plans range from 10 dollars to 25 dollars a month and they all come with SSL/TLS security too

Cons

Besides a product like Wordpress which is also easy to use and much cheaper, GoDaddy's Website Builder is a very cheap and easy to use option, but compared to a lot of other options (and I've used a few in the past 10 years). It is hard to fully recommend this product when there is so much more one can do with other products

A Longtime Fan and Who Has My Back (domain name)

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am especially pleased with the customer service. I am extremely well-versed in all I need to do but the fact that my domain automatically gets extended, the builder is truly easy, and all the bells and whistles you get are just swell! It is like WIx in a small way, another great place I use, But GoDaddy has been my domain preference from the beginning and I spend less time there than my others. In and out, done!

Pros

Mostly, I love GoDaddy because it was the cheapest place for my domain name...and still is when you consider the fact that it is not just a money-grabber for domains. And, the on-the-phone techs are genuinely the best I know and as kind as they could be. Thye will do whatever you need!

Cons

I think as you move up in tiers of subscriptions, you can find cheaper but I know many people who prefer to work with their site on the site they got their domain at.

Very Dissapointing

Reviewed 5 years ago

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

GoDaddy was the first hosting platform I ever used. Not able to do my own coding I hired a professional to do the work for me. Every time I needed a change to be made, I paid for that change. 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. They are not particularly customer centric/friendly. If I could use any other platform other than GoDaddy I would. In fact, when my mother told me she was using GoDaddy I convinced her to switch over to a different platform.

User-friendly attractive website maker with limited features but good price

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, I found the GoDaddy Website Builder to be a good value for the money and the features it offers. I liked the ease of use and the way my website looked professional and functional. I created my site in just two evenings after work, and I think it was because GoDaddy's interface was simple for me to use without crowding me with options I didn't need. GoDaddy does have other integrations too, such as PayPal integration and a feature to book appointments or classes, but I can't speak to those. I have considered looking into those features in the future as I grow my site and business. Although I had a few complaints about some of the editing tools, the positives of the user-friendly editor and the price outweighed the negatives and I will be continuing to use GoDaddy Website Builder.

Pros

I actually switched from Wix to GoDaddy Website Builder because I liked the simpler format of GoDaddy. I found GoDaddy Website Builder easy to use and intuitive. I was able to create my website much more quickly and not get overwhelmed with endless templates and aesthetic options. I was surprised to see that my finished site looked just as professional and attractive as if I had chosen one of the more...

Cons

There were only two issues I had with GoDaddy.

Pros

Not much, some parts are intuitive, it's better than no website and it's definitely better than GoDaddy website builder.

Cons

In the world of website builders, Wix still needs a lot of work. Their templates leave a lot to be desired and they lack a lot of features other website builders have.

I like Wix. The original Godaddy Dave Digital website was built on Wix. Infact the free version is still up, http://article.media/Godaddy-Dave-Digital-Original-Website

Pros

The artificial intelligence site builder is wonderful. Would literally have the site up and running in 10 minutes.

Cons

The free version is too limited and should be updated to reflect today's agency and freelancer user. Its easier to demo a site with all of the bells and whistles operational

Good enough

Easy website builder.

Pros

This software is good enough to build a simple website for a student portfolio or simple company website.

Cons

Not good for more robust websites, not any special functionality to make it top-notch website building.

Super Simple Site Builder

Reviewed 6 years ago

Quick and easy website builder

Pros

There are a ton of site options that you can choose based on desired functionality or business category. The templates are easy to customize with your own colors and images making it quick and easy to get your site up. Plus, you don't pay anything until you publish!

Cons

If you are looking for custom solutions or features you want a different builder. This is perfect someone who needs drag and drop solutions and doesn't know code.

Easy to Use, Great Visual

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I love that I can customize my websites to a very modern and trendy vibe. 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. Using Wix has definitely helped my website really look professional and easy to navigate.

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.

A reliable and easy to use website builder.

Pros

Very easy to deploy, use, and get up to speed with. Suitable for users with little backend web development experience.

Cons

Published code is often bloated, resulting in slower page loading speeds. Lack of responsiveness to viewport size.

Wix, the best website builder

Reviewed 6 years ago

It is the greatest website builder bar none.

Pros

The first thing to notice is that you can have it for free even though your domain will have wix.com at the end. It is a fully DIY and very simple to understand and use. The unlimited plan price is very affordable for anyone trying to start a website. They have really nice already made templates available.

Cons

The only thing that I can think of is that you can't export your data as you would when you have a regular website, but other than that I can not think of another con.

Statistics features are lacking in an increasingly SEO based web world. Sites don't use responsive design in the strict sense.
