This beginner plan from GoDaddy sits in the middle of the road in terms of web hosts.

It isn’t much to get excited about. It’s also priced at the higher end for beginner web hosting. Not including a personalized email address with “yourname@yourdomain.com” after the first year seems like a way to get you to pay extra.

Description

This plan has some great features for a beginner, but you might find yourself too constrained to expand your projects since you’re only allowed one website.

If you’ve never bought web hosting before, this plan will work, but there are some things you should know.

You’ll only be able to use the email address “You@YourSite.com” for the first year, without having to pay extra. This is essential if you want to create a professional online presence. There are only a select few hosts that do this and I have to wonder if it’s a way to make extra money.

Once the 1 year period is over and you no longer have your email address….what are you going to do? Pay the price they ask. Not really fair in my opinion.

At $7.99 / month, the pricing isn’t too much to get excited about and there are better deals out there for that price. You’ll get good storage, automated backups and malware scans but the price and extra fees may be a deal breaker for you.

7.4Expert Score
GoDaddy has (almost) covered all the bases with this beginner plan
If you've never bought webhosting before, this plan ticks almost all the boxes. It offers a free domain, 30 GB of storage, automated backups and professional business email - but only for the first year. This definitely hurt the score of GoDaddy's basic shared web hosting plan.
