The GoDaddy economy plan provides tremendous value for the cost. You get 10 GB of storage, 100 email accounts, 1GB MySQL databases, “unlimited” bandwidth and at least $200 worth of advertising credits for Facebook, Bing, Google, Yahoo ! and so on . At its most expensive , it costs $3.49 per month , and it requires a three-month commitment. There are no additional fees, so at worst, that is an initial investment of $14.97. You can also get an additional discount if you step up the commitment: $4.49/month for 12 months, $4.24 for 24 and $3.49 for 36. With the 4GH economy plan, you get hosting in a world-class data center, state-of-the-art security, a choice of Windows or Linux , extensive language support, dozens of add-on application and so forth.
GoDaddy company guarantees 99.9% uptime across the network, including their economy plans. If they fail to meet that standard during a given month, contact GoDaddy support , and they refund 5% of your monthly hosting fee as a credit. Historically, GoDaddy company has not had much trouble maintaining the 99.9% uptime. In 2011, however, they have delivered uptime as low as 99.3% in four of the first 6 months, including the first month I godaddy ed their service. The good news is that GoDaddy company provided the credit immediately and without issue. One problem, however, is that you do have to contact them for it, so you need to pay attention in order to take advantage. Fortunately, GoDaddy does make the statistics available to you in the control panel, so it is not as if they try to hide it. Despite the nearly three total hours that my site was inaccessible, performance was otherwise extremely fast and smooth.
Support is usually what separates webhosts at the economy pricing points, and it is not difficult to see why GoDaddy company has remained so popular. To be frank, I was a little surprised at how friendly and helpful GoDaddy was when I requested the uptime credit and when I challenged their support system. Part of that is due to how brisk they were during my pre-signup chat. When I spoke with support through chat , I kept them busy for at least twenty minutes as I asked a series of increasingly difficult question. The support agent, Karen, was great; she never got frustrated, and she even walked me through making changes to my configuration in the control panel. In addition to support by chat, GoDaddy provides email support, phone support, a blog, a knowledge base, community forums and even groups, which you can use to custom tailor your community experience.

Nothing missing here. As expected with such a big host.
Setting up the account was very simple to do and I had no troubles adding content to my site. The control panel itself is perhaps not the most aesthetically appealing but it works as it should and it was easy to find everything I wanted to gets.
There are some minor blemishes, but it is very scarce that you get to deal at this price level with a webhost this substantial. The high-level support alone would be worth it for many webmasters. The fact that they don't provide a money back guarantee may be an issue for some, but those guarantees are typically more trouble than they’re worth anyway, and even at 36-month commitment, we’re only talking about $125.64. On the upside, in addition to phenomenal technical support, you get a sophisticated control panel, awesome language support, the best range of applications and add-ons at this price level, and even Windows hosting, if you want .
Cheap price , Free domain name , Prorated money back guarantee and Ability to upgrade to VPS or dedicated hosting .
Website builder is extra , Email accounts are limited and Have to buy a more expensive plan for unlimited websites .
