Control panel of hosting is simple and time to creat addon domain, Mysql is slow, From 30 seconds to 2 minutes (But it is not important) . Web email is slow and unfriendly and phpmyadmin is bad (however you can use Dumper). For a normally, website, It works very excellent. If you need use web mail or have difficulties in using, choose Hostgator or spend from 30 minutes to 1 hour and save your money with godaddy hosting.

Hostgator pros and cons: Very friendly with Cpanel, Easy to add new domains, Databases, ftp account or email account, forwarded, auto responder. Easy to import your database with Phpmyadmin, Work great without error. An important pros of Hostgator is 24/7 support via live chat while Godaddy is ticket and email.

    Thanks so much bro, I decide to change from Hostgator baby to Godaddy Deluxe, very fine although the Hosting control very simple and you must wait when take any action (add domain, creat Mysql database) from 15 to 20 seconds.

  2. Tommy K. says:

    Hostgator is faster, I use Baby plan for 19 sites and still good. I love live chat, 24/7 and don’t want to wait tickets or email etc.

  3. Cat June says:

    Godaddy Deluxe plan, cheap but good. Hostgator is good too, but it is too expensive.

  4. Kymi Cola says:

    Godaddy vs Hostgator, don’t spend too more times to compare. Let’s buy one and start your plan, both are good hosting services. However I recommend Hostgator Baby plan

  5. I love Godaddy domain but i choose Hostgator, If you need use email with utf-8 encode, don’t buy Godaddy. However if you need the cheap hosting for wordpress, Godaddy is better than Namecheap, Bluehost or Dreamhost, My exp.
