Ease of use
The website builder of GoDaddy is a drag-and-drop interface, which means that you can choose where your content goes on the page. Its platform is a What You See Is What You Get builder, so whichever element you add to the editor of the website, will appear similarly on your website once published.
GoDaddy has a builder layout that is visually friendly. They have one toolbar on the left side that keeps things minimalistic and simple. In case you need more space in order to edit, you have the option to hide this toolbar.
If you need any help or extra information, they have email, phone, and live chat support. There’s also a comprehensive support library with lots of documentation of all sorts of topics.
We thought that GoDaddy was simpler to use than some of the other website builders out there. They might be more plain, but they provide the necessary website building tools to make a minimalistic website. If you’re looking for a more advanced website builder with more features, we’d recommend Squarespace or Wix.
Themes Design Options
On GoDaddy you can choose between 300 templates, designed particularly for business, education, entertainment, portfolio, design, real estate, wedding, restaurant, law, health and beauty, and much more. So, finding the template that suits your needs shouldn’t be too difficult.
A big plus about their themes is that they are well-structured and supplied with content, which in turn makes it easier for you to replace it and insert your own content instead. If you’re new to website building or don’t have much time, this comes in very handy.
A downside is that once you have picked your theme, you can’t change it to another one without losing all your previous content. So, be sure to test out a few themes and then pick your favorite template before making your final choice.
For users who are more knowledgeable in coding and would like to make advances changes, we wouldn’t recommend GoDaddy. This website builder doesn’t give its users the possibility to edit the CSS or HTML codes of their themes. So, for those of you who don’t even know what this means or just don’t need to edit code, then this won’t make any difference to you whatsoever.
GoDaddy is known for their great customer support. A support representative can be reached within a few minutes only via email support tickets, the phone or even live chat. Their support channels are available 24/7 and every day of the year. The great thing is that they’ll help you no matter which of their plans you bought.
The GoDaddy website builder allows its users to optimize all the basic SEO functions, such as descriptions for every individual web page. They also offer you a special SEO service plan that starts at 2.69 dollars/month, in order to have access to their topic and keyword suggestion tool, 1-click submission of your website to more than 100 engines, structuring your site with their Market Generator and Rich Snippet, and SEO checklist and ranking reports.
Most other website builder platforms offer free plans or limited trial programs, but GoDaddy does not. They do, on the other hand, promise a refund within 48 hours if you sign up to their monthly plans and a refund within 45 days if you sign up to the yearly plans.
They have 3 plans: Personal for $5.99/month, Business for $9.99/month and Business Plus for $14.99/month. The highest plan is cheaper than on most other website builders, and this is probably because they also come with eCommerce tools. On top of this, you receive a free domain name with a market value of $12/year.
