Considering Web Hosting from GoDaddy?Considering LiquidWeb vs GoDaddy? See the differences.

GoDaddy has long been the on-ramp for businesses, hobbyists, and entrepreneurs looking to finally get online. And why not? As one of the leading domain registrars in the world, for many people GoDaddy is the first step in what can be a lifelong digital journey. But what makes sense as a starting point isn’t always the best choice over the long term.

While GoDaddy offers a wide-range of options for hosting and support, the truth is that most businesses quickly outgrow the technical capability of those options. What’s more, the support and infrastructure management your organization demands are likely not available to you with GoDaddy.

That’s where Liquid Web comes in.

Customer Quote

I am writing to say how FANTASTIC the service is that I have received from Liquid Web since transferring over from Easyspace. Not only was the sales process well above standard (usually is with any company, as they want your business), but the Support Service is EXCEPTIONAL. All of the team, and I have contacted them many times, have been highly efficient, friendly and above all, not treated me like an imbecile when I have asked a technical question.”
