GoDaddy is probably ripping you off. I saved this client $203 a year.
This is a screenshot from an email sent to me by a client who hosts their website and registers their domain through Go Daddy. Why is the biggest hosting company in the world all of a sudden no longer able to include email with their hosting? Why is the biggest hosting company in the world no longer able to offer exactly what 99.99% of all other hosting companies offer?
Well… they can…. but they would rather take advantage of you for another $4.99 a month.
GoDaddy has a history of this. They draw new clients in with cheap prices and vague claims of great customer service. Then, once you start your initial order, they tack on services and fees that you don’t need. (Their whole website hosting control panel is built to be an upsell tool!) Next, they start taking way all the “free” services they initially offered and try to squeeze you for more.
Don’t let this happen to you!
When I investigate a new clients GoDaddy account, they are typically overpaying for services from $100 to $300 per year due to GoDaddy’s unscrupulous tactics. In this case, the client would be overpaying $203 per year. GoDaddy knows you are not a website professional and they are more than happy to take advantage of you.
If you’d like me to assess your website hosting account and see if I can help you save, let me know. It’s free. (For real!)
