|The Good:|| Free Premium Features: SiteGround includes advanced features like automatic daily backups, CloudFlare CDN, and Let's Encrypt SSL certificates with every plan. |
Optimized Plans: SiteGround offers hosting packages designed specifically for top performance on content management systems like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, or e-commerce platforms like Magento, PrestaShop, and WooCommerce.
Fantastic Customer Support: SiteGround guarantees near-instantaneous reply times across all of its customer support channels.
Robust Uptime Guarantee: SiteGround promises you 99.99% uptime.
|The Good:|| Great Uptime: You would expect a company like GoDaddy to have one of the best uptimes in the industry just giving the fact that they are so huge. But I have yet to hear a complaint about GoDaddy uptime. Uptime is one of those things you expect a web hosting company to deliver on and GoDaddy does that with style. |
Linux and Windows Hosting: GoDaddy is one of the rare few hosting providers who give you the option to go for Windows rather than the industry-standard Linux operating system. If you've got ASP.NET websites, this is the place for you.
Great Tech Support: Time and time again, web hosting companies get complaints about their customer service. Whether it is a lack of knowledge or huge wait times, but GoDaddy have pulled a rabbit out of their hat with this magic. They have the absolute best customer service.
User Friendly: Most of GoDaddy is built around the idea of the newer end customers. All of their tools are newbie friendly. Personally I love theircPanel which should be an industry standard at this point. Everything I need is right at my fingertips and I have absolutely no complaints about their UX.
|The Bad:|| Limited Resources: Some of SiteGround lower-priced plans are saddled with limitations like domain or storage space caps. |
Sluggish Website Migrations: If you've got an existing website, numerous user complaints indicate that you should prepare for a long transfer process with SiteGround.
No Windows Hosting: SiteGround's boosted speed relies in part on cutting-edge Linux container technology, so don't expect Windows-based hosting here.
|The Bad:|| Not a Great Value: Unless you catch GoDaddy on a great promotional deal, you're going to be a little upset at the prices you are paying. You just don't get the same level of performance with GoDaddy lower end service packages. But if you catch them in a promotion, winner winner chicken dinner. |
Online Store Lacks Features: For me, at this day and age, e-Commerce additions should be a no brainer. You should get all the bells and whistles because the web hosting company usually takes a chunk of your money anyways. For GoDaddy, they miss the boat with missing features and errors just attacking your store at every angle.
|Summary:||This web hosting is the perfect base framework for users to host their blogs or websites. Features are astounding such as SSD drves for all plans and improved speedy performance with NGINX, HTTP/2, PHP7 and free CDN. More features include free SSL certificate an user app updates. The proprietary and unique firewall security rules enable users to avoid system vulnerabilities. There is also free website transfer and serves which have been placed on three continents. There also exists premium features for WordPress along with highly responsive live chat.||Summary:||Also available in this web-hosting service is great support along with 1-Click app installs and more. It is worth noting that it is easy to use domain name registration coupled with hosting. Users do not have to worry about their websites being mobile ready or choosing between Linux and Windows. Users can also access accounts on the Go Daddy mobile app with the websites themselves being tweaked to let users easily access account information.|
