GoDaddy started its quest to be the cheapest hosting company long ago. While the company has come under fire for customer support issues and websites going down, this is a good option for people who are just starting out and want a lot of options, in terms of servers, rates, and WordPress applications.
Their cheapest plan is Economy, which according to the website will provide you with one website, unmetered bandwidth, 100 GB storage, free domain with annual plan, and a free Microsoft Office 365 Business Email account.
Uptime reports show that there can be dips in GoDaddy’s speed from time to time, but on average, it remains around 99% and its page speed averages out to 2.97 seconds.
Customer support ratings for GoDaddy have improved since they have added multiple applications and support for WordPress. Many use GoDaddy for WordPress websites as it allows to create a website with one click.
Bandwidth issues and downtime have been reported as recently as January 02, 2018 with an uptime status showing that website builder recently failed. However, there were no other incidents in the past month involving a less than 99% uptime status.
Plans will look at a certain rate and start out low, but if you choose to pay monthly or do not have any coupon codes, you will end up paying more for your cheap hosting. You can always negotiate lower rates and server sharing through phone support.
Hosting is a lot cheaper on GoDaddy than on other servers, but you may find yourself with a down website if you plan to generate a ton of traffic and have not purchased the right hosting plan for the bandwidth you may require.
