GoDaddy web hosting just doesn’t stop. A truly global company, GoDaddy has long been a leader in the web hosting world and a trusted web host for Canadian websites. Proven, stable, and completely scalable to your needs. They will help you create and administer your website, right from the one-click setup.

Two key benefits set GoDaddy web hosting apart from the crowd – and we’re not talking about the company’s advertising or the publicity GoDaddy’s owner manages to attract.

First, not only are the shared hosting plans a good value, but they offer incredible opportunities to grow and add on. They offer a full catalogue of online and web hosting solutions, from SEO tools to a turnkey ecommerce operation to online storage and much more. GoDaddy is a one-stop shop for all your online needs.

Second, GoDaddy is one of – if not the – biggest domain registrars and web hosting companies in the world. This is a stable, evolving, profitable company that moves with the times and keeps on top of technology. You don’t need to worry about them disappearing into the night. Your website will be available, fast and dynamic, thanks to their extensive web hosting services.

Price Value

GoDaddy offers a range of shared web hosting plans, from the very basic Economy to the Ultimate option. In between those, lies their most popular, the Deluxe hosting plan. Currently priced starting at just over $4 a month, the Deluxe GoDaddy hosting plan comes with 150 GB disk space (more than enough for the vast majority of websites), unlimited bandwidth, 500 email accounts, and 25 MySQL databases. All hosting plans come with a free domain, if you sign up for at least a year.

Not into long-term commitments? GoDaddy is one of the few web hosting companies that offers the option of month-by-month payment. Sign up and pay for one month at a time – or sign up for a year or more and save even more. It’s up to you!

Reliability

All GoDaddy shared hosting accounts are hosted in their state-of-the-art data centres, strategically located in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region – wherever your website visitors are, they are assured a fast web hosting experience. With a 99.9% uptime guarantee, full network redundancy, and best-of-breed firewalls and servers, you can rest easy.

Add in GoDaddy’s enterprise-class backup and restore technologies and the 24/7 on-site security staff, and we at Hosting-Review.com have no hesitation recommending GoDaddy as a highly reliable shared web hosting option for all Canadians.

Control Panel

GoDaddy web hosting has created its own hosting control panel. This proprietary control panel has come a long way in the past few years, and is now quite clean, streamlined, and easy to use. It make take a little getting used to, if you’ve been using cPanel, but we don’t think it’ll take long!

Customer Support

GoDaddy’s customer support team is available 24/7 by phone (long-distance charges will apply, but this is the fastest way to reach support) or email.

Their support really excels through its self-serve options: knowledgebase articles, active community forums, blogs, groups, and the GoDaddy IdeaShare are all accessible and helpful, day and night.
