GoDaddy has long been a force to be reckoned with on the international shared web hosting scene, and its stability and constant evolution are good points in its favour. This is no fly-by-night hosting service: GoDaddy hosting is one of the largest, broadest ranging web hosting companies operating in the world.

GoDaddy UK is certainly a powerful option for customers in the United Kingdom. Access to GoDaddy’s global networks and servers (GoDaddy UK accounts may be hosted on servers in Europe-based data centres) are a benefit to shared hosting customers, not to mention the extremely low price point and wide range of services and features. Now advertising its 4GH, or fourth generation, hosting, GoDaddy pledges lightning-fast cloud hosting, even during the biggest traffic spikes. Starting at just £2.88/month (that’s the economy plan, with 10GB disk space and unlimited bandwidth), this is quality hosting that won’t break the bank!

Another advantage for GoDaddy UK customers: there are no long-term contracts required. Sign up for a month, give it a try, and bow out whenever you need to. GoDaddy UK web hosting has come a long way – and we’re excited to see what the future brings.

Price Value

GoDaddy’s three main shared hosting plans (economy, deluxe, and ultimate) range in price from £2.88/month to £5.83/month (that’s if you sign up long-term). All are good price value, especially when you take into account GoDaddy UK’s very long list of features, pre-installed applications, and add-on applications.

One note of caution: You will have to watch for the add-ons. GoDaddy UK shared hosting offers a wide range of services and some of them are not included with the basic plan. Read the order form carefully to ensure you get exactly what you need! You can always add on additional services later, when you know you want them!

Reliability

GoDaddy’s Europe-based servers are all outfitted with best-of-breed routers, firewalls, and servers. GoDaddy does not outsource any aspect of its hosting, maintaining control over security, server management, and networks. GoDaddy UK offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee and full network redundancy.

Control Panel

GoDaddy’s proprietary control panel is another aspect of GoDaddy’s business that has improved significantly over time. Not as cluttered or convoluted as it once was, the GoDaddy shared hosting control panel is straightforward and is quite easy to get used to.

Customer Support

GoDaddy UK offers 24/7 phone (not toll-free) and email support. There is no live chat option. There is, however, a self-help centre bursting with helpful articles, tutorials, and forums to help you out with any aspect of web hosting.
