So… GoDaddy

"But I can host with GoDaddy for only $4.99!"

“But I can host with GoDaddy for only $4.99!”

We hear this all the time, so we decided to do a cost comparison of our Hosting Services vs GoDaddy’s.

To do this comparison accurately and eliminate confusion, we had to make some adjustments as GoDaddy does things a little differently than we do. We have one price and do not to nickle-and-dime our customers with à la carte pricing. Also, many of the prices that they advertise are only valid when an entire year is paid at once, whereas we go out of our way to make sure there are no big lump sums due year after year.

In this comparison, you will see that GoDaddy’s “cheap” hosting is just the hook. Once you add on all the tools included in our hosting plan that are necessary to run your business online, in the end, their total is far from cheap!
