SHOULD YOU USE GODADDY TO BUILD YOUR COMPANY’S WEBSITE?

Your website is like your business outlet. People go there and look around to either retrieve information or make a purchase.

This is why your website design matters a lot. After all, it is the first thing that your visitors notice. Website design includes the speed at which various features load, the color scheme, the accessibility of various features and the overall aesthetic.

Given that Pakistani businesses are rapidly moving towards digitization, companies need to have better digital platforms to thrive.

This is why companies in Pakistan have been increasingly investing in website development.

However, web hosting services i.e. GoDaddy have made it harder for people to answer the question: Should we use a web hosting service to build our company website or hire a web developer?

Well, first let’s see what GoDaddy is.

What is GoDaddy and What Should I Know About It?

GoDaddy is one of the best web hosting services in the world. In Pakistan, it falls on the 18th position in the dedicated hosting category.

What is Dedicated Hosting?

It refers to a web hosting option in which a single customer has complete control over a dedicated server of his own. The dedicated hosting service provider gives all the relevant technical support and associated services to the customer.

Besides being a web hosting service provider, GoDaddy is well-known for its domain name registration facilities.

Interestingly, GoDaddy, unlike many other web hosting service providers, has a variety of hosting services that it provides to its customers. The types of hosting services it covers are:

  1. Dedicated
  2. VPS
  3. Shared
  4. Business
  5. WordPress
  6. WordPress E-commerce

Hiring a Web Developer Vs. GoDaddy

Hiring a web developer has its pros and cons. The pros include:

  • You can get your desired customized website.

A good and professional web developer would tell you a fixed cost for making a customized website for you. It would include all the add-on and customized features that you want. However, if you use a website builder, it might cost you a lot, without any add-ons or customized features.

Even the professional web developers and designers that Mindwhiz has will make a desired customized website for you, in an affordable price.

  • You can have a professional opinion in deciding what your website should look like.

At Mindwhiz, our web developers lend a professional hand to all our clients. They offer their valuable opinion to the client. Since web developers know what features draw more attention, you need to have web developers make suggestions.

  • A web developer can help you incorporate the best SEO practices.

With the help of a team of professional web developers, you can track the progress of your website through Google Analytics. As a business owner, you will have a lot on your plate. This is why you might not be able to track your website traffic and do all your other business chores at the same time.

Hiring Mindwhiz can help you do all of this because our web development team would not only make a beautiful, customized website but also provide you with SEO-rich content. Also, our team will update you on tracking your website traffic.

The cons of hiring a web developer are mentioned below:

  • Hiring a web developer is a long-term investment so you must hire one wisely.

It is possible that you might end up with an incompetent web developer if you don’t look carefully.
We get that it can be hard to select the best web developer from the market, which is why Mindwhiz has got your back!
Our competent and professional web developers work with clients while being constantly in contact with them.
This is way we deliver quality websites to small and big businesses, equally.

  • A communication gap might occur between you and your web developer.

In an interview with an expert Pakistani web developer, we found that a web developer has to have great communication skills. If your developer does not understand your requirements, he will not be able to deliver a website according to your expectations.
This is where our development team at Mindwhiz won’t fail you. Our development team considers communication as the key factor in delivering quality web designs and sites.

If you want to use GoDaddy to build your website yourself, then you certainly can. Let’s go over pros and cons of using GoDaddy. The pros of using GoDaddy include:

  • GoDaddy is a one-stop shop.

GoDaddy makes it simple for its users to make a website. You cannot only purchase a domain name with GoDaddy but also a web hosting service.
There are more than 300 templates that it offers to its users build a website that is mobile-friendly.

  • GoDaddy is extremely user-friendly.

If you are not a web developer and don’t know how to develop a website from scratch, then GoDaddy can be good for you.
It has simple and user-friendly features that can enable you to create a website yourself. You don’t have to know all the technical web development stuff to make GoDaddy work for you.

  • GoDaddy is affordable.

GoDaddy has different packages to suit your needs. These packages are affordable and come with an array of features.
For example, in the personal plan you get 50 personal themes, 1 GB Disk Space, 150GB Bandwidth, and a business email from Office 365 (free for the first year) in $5.99 per month.
Similarly, these features become better as the plan and price grow.

The cons of using GoDaddy include:

  • You might lose your data after switching your template.

Yes, there is a great variety of templates that GoDaddy offers.
However, did you know that when you switch from one template to another one, you lose all your data. This includes your SEO content as well.
This is why it is a big risk when using GoDaddy to build a website.

  • As an e-commerce brand, you might not be able to operate smoothly with GoDaddy.

If you have a normal plan with GoDaddy, you can have your customers pay you through PayPal. However, this feature is limited in nature.
Additional features are enabled only when you upgrade your plan, which means you have to spend more. It can get costly this way.

  • As an e-commerce brand, you might not be able to operate smoothly with GoDaddy.

To build your brand authority it is important that you generate SEO-rich content. Unfortunately, GoDaddy does not enable you to have this feature through its Website Builder.
If you want such a section, you will need to purchase an external link from websites i.e. WordPress or Blogger.
