2017 GoDaddy Website Builder Review
PROS - No smooth integrations with a GoDaddy shop, blogs must be run seperately, more restricted than other features. The GoDaddy range may be the widest of enterprise web product offerings, from domains and web hostings to on-line stores. And of course a website creator. GoDaddy Website Builder is easy to use and very inexpensive with the company's regular advertising promotions.
However, the site is missing in some other areas, without a truly smooth way to integrate a shop or blogs into the site. Although it is certainly not suitable for any kind of company, the GoDaddy Website Builder has some advantages. In contrast to the few other web sites we have tried so far, GoDaddy does not provide a free trailer.
As soon as you have added the required parcel to your shopping basket and checked it out, you can start to build a website. As GoDaddy provides several different product, the user is not directed directly to the website editors after login, but to the dashboard. Although the dashboard provides full product accessibility, even the website creator, the extra steps can make navigating a little more difficult for novices.
As soon as they are in Website Builder, new visitors are asked to choose their domainname and then a topic. The GoDaddy has the largest range of themes we have seen so far, from property to non-profit. Every categorie has several topic choices, many of which can be customized to fit more than one kind of transaction.
You can change the topic at any point, but to do so, you must leave the Web Site Builder and go to the Topics page on the Web Site Builder home page. As soon as the topic is chosen, new editors are asked to enter the company name and email and then redirected to the website editors.
There are three main parts to the editor: the web page in the center, the tools box on the toolbar on the upper right, and the top menu at the top. A click adds the element to the center of the page or a user can simply move it to the desired location on the page using drag-and-drop.
Available choices are quite good and even contain an optional way to insert HTML blockcodes. Using the top navigational panel, the user can browse (or create new) pages or modify preferences such as Back Up and Recovery as well as Advanced Search (SEO) features. Previewing for both the desktops and mobiles of the site is also available here (the mobiles are only available with the Web site as part of the Web site bundle).
New pages added have no template to select from - they are just added empty, except for the headers, navigators and footers of the site. Whilst most web designers adapt the length of the page to suit their needs naturally, GoDaddy visitors need to go to the preferences and raise or lower the page size - it's a little difficult and can take new visitors some getting by.
GoDaddy also provides an on-line shop solution, but cannot be directly incorporated into the Website Builder, at least not smoothly. You can add a shop shortcut in the navigator toolbar, but that's it. There' s no way to exactly keep the layout and setting between the shop and the blogs.
Because the GoDaddy on-line shop also allows the addition of pages, this is the better deal for companies who want to advertise on-line. Pages are somewhat more restricted in the shop options, but will still work for most companies. Shopkeepers usually append bloodlogs to their website as a promotional tools, but like appending a shop, there's no good way to append a bloodlogs to the GoDaddy Website Builder.
Inside the utility box, a user can move a weblog feeder by drag-and-drop and add the RSS feeder from an already created weblog to view the contributions on the site. But this only works for established weblogs - shopkeepers would have to launch a seperate weblog on WordPress, Tumblr or any other platforms instead of directly posting to the site.
Blogs also show only thumbnails - there is no way to show an whole article. As we were linking to a blogs that used both horizontally and vertically featured pictures, the layouts were overlapping and didn't look good at all. Because it' s just a blogseed, you can' t customize the look without having to choose between two choices.
GoDaddy Website Builder is pretty straightforward to use, not the easiest we've ever tried, but the site will work well for most Dictionary pages. Dragging and dropping styles is really quite straightforward, although there are a few things you can do, such as page length and selecting a new design that isn't where we expect it to be.
The GoDaddy often offer promotional pricing - at the point of our review, our site builders could get Website Builder for just $1 per months for the first year, complete with a domainname and e-mail. This is for the base pack, the $9 buisness pack, unfortunately the GoDaddy website builder makes it difficult to create a shop window or adding a blogs.
Either can be done, but requires additional action and does not fit into the website layout. For this reason it is difficult to suggest GoDaddy for shops or weblogs. In fact, we found a flaw where the pop-up menus for adjusting the preferences in the top of the page chopped off, so we couldn't see all the choices.
If you encounter problems, the GoDaddy Help Centre provides a series of Tutorials and Frequently Asked Questions. GoDaddy Help Centre has a number of Help Centre sections. You can answer your question via an on-line conversation or telephone; there is currently no e-mail service. GoDaddy Website Builder is an affordable, easy way for businessmen to build websites. It is not perfect for shop windows or blogging, but provides a broad array of choices for many other kinds of businesses.
