GoDaddy Ultimate Shared Web Hosting Plan
This plan is missing two essential features. Unlimited email accounts and daily automated backups.
$14.99 / month
At $15 per month, this plan must have some great features for it to stay competitive in the web hosting market.
With hosting plans this price, unlimited storage, websites, bandwidth (unmetered), backups and emails should be standard.
Not so with this plan unfortunately. It misses two of those requirements.
GoDaddy will only allow you to use your custom email accounts for one year with the Office365 suite. Afterwards an extra fee will be incurred if you want to continue using your custom email.
And why wouldn’t you?
That’s more money ontop of your web hosting bill.
The next plan up from this, the “Maximum” plan jumps up steeply by $8 and only offers additional server speed. If you have a light site that isn’t very complex, you’ll be wasting your money on that plan. $8 per month can get you an entire new web hosting account.
The second way this plan falls short is that it doesn’t include automated backups. If you’re going to create anything worthwhile, taking a backup is absolutely essential. If you’ve never lost work that you spent time on creating, it’s super not fun.
Backups should be absolutely standard for web hosting plans that demand a higher monthly price, just like this one.
