GoDaddy’s features are limited, making it difficult to be considered a scalable CMS. As your company grows a GoDaddy-based website might not be able to accommodate needed future functionality. 


It offers support through their contact service 24 hours a day, seven days a week via phone, email, or live chat. Although according to many user-reviews on for example Trustpilot, the support might not meet the exact needs of their user base.


In the end, the performance of a website is often linked to the content, theme, hosting package and scope of the website.


GoDaddy focuses on security. It offers several security plans and the possibility to purchase an SSL certificate. However, it lacks of password-protected pages function which can be a limiting feature for some businesses. 


GoDaddy uses technologies such as PHP and MySQL.  The diagram below asserts that 79.0% of all the websites whose server-side programming language we know use PHP. A lot of programmers can work with the platform. Therefore, it could be cheaper if compared to Java, for example.

GoDaddy uses a sort of paid freemium model. With Four different Website Builder price plans ranging from 40DKK/month to 130DKK/month. There are chances to come up against multiple hidden fees. In other words, the first year will be cheap, but then the cost will may rise considerably. GoDaddy also will charge you for features, that every modern CMS normally includes.
