GoDaddy hosting has most of the standard features you’d expect from a mature hosting brand. These features include SSH, Htaccess, SSL certificates, etc. It also provides a few more customized features that give you an edge when hosting with the company.
It has a custom payments tool called Poynt that’s pre-activated when you set up your hosting. It’s an integration for WooCommerce stores that allows you to collect all major credit card and debit cards online. It charges 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction and settles payments in your bank account the next day.
Instead of fumbling around in the dark trying to figure out if you’ve met or exceeded your usage limits, GoDaddy provides a clear statistics dashboard. You can see your CPU usage, I/O, file usage, etc. so if anything needs to be pared back, you’ll be the first to know.
One-click app installation
It offers well over 100 applications such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla that can be installed with a single click. This reduces the burden of technical experience and lets you launch your website even faster.
Password protected directories
When you’re sharing a hosting account with a team, not everyone needs to have access to every single file or directory. GoDaddy makes it simple to password protect important files so only specific people have access to it. This adds another layer of security to your hosting account so you can rest easy.
Like many other hosting companies, GoDaddy provides the popular cPanel for customers to manage their websites and hosting services. Within cPanel, users can install software, add websites, manage DNS, and much more. If you want to manage your account, it has a custom interface that gives you access to plan details and the ability to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel subscriptions.
