Godaddy’s Deluxe Plan vs Economy Plan

Date Tuesday, 28 October 2008  Posted in Category Domain Name & Web Hosting  Tags , , ,   Comment 2 Comments »

If you are ready to go for Godaddy’s web hosting, take the Deluxe Plan into your consideration if you have more than 1 domain web site want to be hosted.

With the extra $2.00 per month (Economy Plan: $4.99/month; Deluxe Plan: $6.99/month), you can host unlimited websites and get a higher bandwidth and disk space, this is most people will compare in the web hosting plan.

Of cause, if you have only 1 domain name and want 1 web site to be hosted, you do not need to go for Deluxe Plan and I will not recommend you to go for Godaddy because there are other web hosting companies out there can provide better deal, really.

‘Unlimited Websites’ (host unlimited domain names) feature is the attractive key

The attractive of Godaddy’s web hosting is Deluxe Plan/Unlimited+ Plan but not Economy Plan. Many people want to go for Godaddy because its low domain names pricing, monthly subscription available for web hosting plan and web hosting plan’s features, especially the high transfer bandwidth quota and the large web space. 150 GB is almost half of a hard disk size and 1,500 GB data transfer/month is equal to download 375 full DVD movies (1500/4 GB)!

I used to have Economy Plan but upgraded to Deluxe Plan after 2 months of hosting. With $6.99/month, I can host more than 30 web sites, why not? Honestly, I don’t think other web hosting companies can offer me this deal. If they do, I would much appreciate if you can share with me.

If you ask me about the web site loading speed, I have no comment because I am ok with the performance at this cost, even though I know the server is sharing with other 800 web sites. If you want a super fast web site like Facebook, then please consider a dedicated server hosting plan.

Godaddy Economy Plan Hosting Gone Up to USD4.99

Godaddy.com- My favourite domain registrar and web hosting provider has raised their Economy Plan hosting fee from USD3.99/month to USD4.99/month effective October 2008. This rise made me consider whether should I look for alternative web hosting providers to sustain my business revenue.

Godaddy.com has adjusted their Economy Plan hosting fee in yearly basis for the past 3 years, the fee changed from 2006 to 2008 as USD3.19/month, USD3.99/month and USD4.99/month. It has raised at least 55% compare the fee of 2006, eventually it creased my cost on the web hosting. I have many web hosting accounts with Godaddy.com, here “I” means my business clients. Our website hosted on Godaddy.com servers for years and so far we are satisfy with its service.

With this raised, I conducted a change impact and conditions & cost study, summarised that there will be a hassle changed if we switch the web hosting provider. The changed will affect many operations processes and new environment might not able to deliver the same result, to ensure my client’s website operations and best results, I have decided to stay with Godaddy.com.

By the way, a web hosting fee adjustment to my clients might need to be conducted, but not in this year.
