1 & 1 vs. GoDaddy

Posted by http://retwt.me/ce6p Wednesday, October 7, 2009
In our comparison of 1 & 1 vs. GoDaddy web hosting we found that both companies provide much more than just web hosting. Many web hosting companies offer one or more shared hosting packages and some offer shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting but both of 1&1 and GoDaddy offer a few web hosting package options for both Linux and Windows web hosting for their shared, VPS, and dedicated web hosting.

Besides web hosting both companies also offer many other services that compliment webhosting such as domains, email, eCommerce, and business solutions. Both companies also service several million customers. For some this may be a pro and for some this may be a con. 1&1 was started in 1988 and GoDaddy in 1997.
The main difference we found were that GoDaddy is an ICANN certified domain registrar, offers several SSL certificate and reseller services, and has auctions and a martketplace on their website. GoDaddy does not require any contracts but offers a discount to those willing to commit to 12, 24, or 36 months. GoDaddy does not offer toll free telephone support but has a ton of other customer support options for their customers not wanting to pay for telephone support such as email, FAQ, Knowledgebase, Help Guides, Tutorials, Glossary, and Forum. And although their telephone support is not free they do not outsource their customer service so when you call you get someone inhouse and not in another country. You may have seen GoDaddy's controversial Super Bowl commercials. GoDaddy participates in a number of charities.

1&1 offers 24/7 toll free support as well as email
customer support. 1&1 also provides green web hosting saving 30,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year. They also offer a 90 day money back guarantee.

Because both companies have so many different web hosting services we are just comparing one of their shared web hosting packages
1&1's $4.99 plan to GoDaddy's $6.99 plan. Both packages have aTON of features so we are choosing to just highlight a few main features.
1&1:
1,200 Email Accounts
10 FTP Accounts
120 GB Disk Space
1,200 GB Monthly Transfer Volume
100 Subdomains
Host 50 External Domains
24/7 Toll-free Support

GoDaddy:
500 Email Accounts
50 FTP Users
150 GB Disk Space
1,500 GB Monthly Data Transfer
Unlimited Subdomains
Unlimited External Domains
Not a Toll-free 24/7 Inhouse Telephone Support
