Go Daddy.com - The web is your domain.I know what you’re thinking, I must have some scheme or I’ve been paid by Go Daddy to write this article. Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m just writing this post to share my opinions of Go Daddy.

I have been a Go Daddy customer for over 2 years now. I’ve done my research and have seen bad things written about Go Daddy, for example, No Daddy is the first thing that comes to mind. Pretty much every established Company out there is going to have bad things written about them, it’s just the nature of the beast. But in my humble opinion and what I’ve experienced as a customer of Go Daddy has shown only positive experiences in my webmaster endeavors.

If you’re curious about some of the things said at No Daddy, people had negative things to say about Go Daddy’s advertising techniques and were offended by the models they used. I’m sorry folks, that just doesn’t include me. I remember a complaint about someone buying a domain name, setting up the entire site, then the site disappeared off the face of the earth and Go Daddy wouldn’t do anything to help the individual out because someone else already bought the domain name that dropped off the face of the earth. There has to be a logical explanation for all of these things. Do Companies make mistakes? Of course they do. Do customers make mistakes as well, like using an invalid credit card or forgetting to renew their domain name? Of course they do, nobody is perfect.

Now that I got the negatives out of the way, let’s discuss some good things about Go Daddy. One of the best things I like about Go Daddy is their customer service is always on top of things. No matter what questions you call in with, they will do everything in their power to get your questions answered properly. This even pertains to questions I’ve asked that they technically weren’t responsible for giving the answer to.

Go Daddy provides  a lot of neat tools to get you started off on the right foot for beginning web designers. For example, you can set up a .htaccess 301 redirect for all your out dated pages in one section of your back office, you can even specify at 404 error page where visitors can be redirected to in case they land on an incomplete URL.

Go Daddy provides a bunch of third party applications you can take advantage of like WordPress for content management and blogging, and Simple Machines Forum along with a whole bunch of other software applications to get your website a jump start.

So this is my humble opinion of Go Daddy, if you agree or disagree, please let the world know by commenting on this post.
