Go Daddy Hosting Review
As a web host, Go Daddy offers a unique structure compared to the majority of other hosting companies out there. Rather than using the traditional Cpanel hosting manager, Go Daddy uses it's own custom website-based hosting management system. With a traditional Cpanel host, you login to your domain's control panel to manage all aspects of your site, including FTP, email, subdomains, etc... For example, if you were using a Cpanel host such as Host Gator, you would login to your hosting administration settings using http://yourdomainname.com/cpanel. With Go Daddy, you login to your hosting account directly from the Go Daddy website.
Go Daddy's unique hosting control panel is effective, but may be a bit too untraditional for some users. With Cpanel hosting, everything that you need to administer on your hosting account is found in one location. With Go Daddy's hosting interface, you must browse through several pages (the same way you would browse through a website) to get to different administration options. Everything is linked nicely, but the interface lacks the structure of a traditional control panel, where everything is located in one spot. Some people like this web browser interface better, and others prefer the more traditional Cpanel layout.
For first time webmasters looking to choose a web host, Cpanel may be simpler. Go Daddy's interface does have a slight learning curve, and it takes some getting used to. However, once learned, it becomes more efficient.
