Unlike many other web hosting companies, GoDaddy has special pride about the service that they provide because every last server, router and cable that they use is owned and maintained by them. Their equipment has fully redundant power and network connections and are monitored 24/7 by their technicians. The advantage to GoDaddy owning their datacenter and equipment is obvious. They get to choose the equipment they use, which happens to be top of the line. They also take security very seriously and have a 24/7 dedicated system in place that ensures the network perimeter remains secure. All emails flowing through their systems are also scanned for viruses to provide complete protection for their clients.

Pricing

Because of the enormous size of the GoDaddy company, they have the ability to offer outstanding prices to their customers.

Also included in this package is the ability to use 50 databases and 1,000 email accounts.

Control panel

GoDaddy is not too hard to use, even without a technical background. Most functions within the Account Management tool are similar to other control panels.

Customer support

GoDaddy offers many support options, such as Telephone Support,Email Support and FAQ Section on their Web Site.
