Godaddy is a very big brand when we talk about domain name registration. You might have seen various innovative advertisements on TV and from that you could understand how much aggressive promotion they are doing in this sector. But they are not one of the best WordPress hosting providers if you look for reviews.
But Godaddy offer various attractive hosting packages with monthly billing plan option which is really an awesome feature. As a beginner spending money for web hosting is a huge burden. Like many to avoid the hosting charges I opted to BlogSpot platform. Not even that I bought my first domain as .in as it was very cheap compared to the .com domain.
This psychology is similar for all beginners. But if you are reading this article and able to connect with me then don’t do the mistake I did few years back. One should start a website with only .com domain and then begin blogging with WordPress self-hosted platform.
Why Godaddy Starter Hosting Plan could be best for Beginners
Most of the popular hosting plans offer yearly plan or 6 month plan with min price of Rs 450 -600 / month. And with domain name one has to put around Rs 5,000 – 8,000 initially. But what if after continuing for few days of blogging you found some issue with the hosting company? What if you lost your interest in blogging topic and now thinking about a new domain?
Many times hosting companies provide very attractive offers that we can’t afford to lose. I did the same mistake and buy a 1 year hosting plan with a domain name from bigrock.in. But later I found their hosting service was pathetic as I was mostly not able to log in to the admin area. But one good thing is their customer support team is awesome. They have refunded back my money without asking many questions.
Anyway, to avoid such situations I was looking for some hosting plan with monthly billing plan. I found hostgator very good at that time. They were charging around Rs 450 / month. But again I was not feeling comfortable as I was looking for more cheap hosting plans.
In such a scenario, I think one can easily take the Godaddy Starter Hosting Plan with monthly billing plan option. Recently I had an experience with Godaddy Managed Hosting plan and I have to say that it was a good experience. Many of their things are auto set-up. Installing WordPress was very easy and fun with Godaddy WordPress installation panel.
So, if you are not focused in which topic you want to start your blog then you may choose Godaddy for few months as the cost is also less. For serious people better to choose the most recommended WordPress hosting like Blue host, Site ground, Dream host etc with longer duration hosting plan to save more.
