For those looking for reliable web hosts, having an idea of what services they offer along with the comparisons of one hosting service provider to another can help them decide whose services to go for.
In this article, we’ll be comparing and contrasting Webgator and GoDaddy as web hosting providers you may be considering. Webgator has been around since 1996 while GoDaddy was founded a year later. Both offer dedicated web hosting services that come with customer support. They also have their own website building and developing offers and packages. Webgator offers website design while GoDaddy has its own website builder. If you look at it, it might look like GoDaddy has as an edge over Webgator because their website looks much more modern compared to Webgator and their website builder has hundreds of customizable designs—all for free.
In comparing how their websites look, Webgator falls short of the modern layout that GoDaddy has. However, Webgator has managed to remain as a trusted web hosting provider because of their reasonably priced packages and other perks. What they lack in looks, they make up for in the cost of their services. Their website development is taken care of by experts to help ensure clients have fully functional websites and they offer free consultation. GoDaddy has a comprehensible website builder and it is known for customer support excellence, so in this regard, each website provider has their pros and cons. GoDaddy has that edge when you are looking for something easy to use and highly customizable.
What Webgator offers on the other hand includes web promotion services, free setup for their shared hosting, and a special offer for free website submission which entails having their client’s website submitted to 1000 search engines at no charge. They also offer creating a high-impact homepage for free for a limited period of time.
Comparing these features, it can be said that if you want to have an idea of what Webgator services are like, you can experience it for free but only for a limited period of time. On the other hand, GoDaddy offers clients a more customizable experience and other features such as a GoDaddy email, SSL certificates, and their 24/7 support. GoDaddy is also known to have over 12 million customers and over 57 million domains under their management as a testimony to their continuous efficiency.
