By exercising sales and support staff by live chat or call, we can say Godaddy will score average for help and support. As a support they have video tutorials for you to fix the problems. In case if you don’t understand from videos, they are available 24/7 on calls. All the support features are provided free of cost. After specifying your problem to the help and support team, they take minimum 20 minutes to do a reply.

Godaddy is good enough about control panel. It has an 11.40.1 version of cPanel. It may be called user friendly and well equipped. Domain manager, file manager and database manager all works good. Including many more features other than the standard ones cPanel is an attractive page. You have to keep patience with setup time. Godaddy keeps some features hidden from economy plan holders. We can’t rank Godaddy first because of some missing additional features in cPanel. It also lacks at database facilities like backup and restoring it from failures and crashes.
Like some features are not meant for economy plan holders, higher level security is also compromised for them. With economy plan they use secure shell and also protect your emails from spam with spam detection facility. Basic introductory packages miss higher security like SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to make your URL secure. So with basic plan you can’t add E-commerce in your website.
With such factors, we can summarize that Godaddy is a very good option with cheap investments. For support, you can get help from Google as users keep on posting a number of problems and their solutions. You can easily get a solution from that list. All in all, if uptime is not your concern you can go for Godaddy.
