*GoDaddy requires $107.88 upfront to give you this low monthly price, and then you’ll pay $9.99 after the first year.
Once traffic hits, the upsells begin
A Nexcess customer had an “unlimited” GoDaddy plan. After a traffic surge, her site crashed. GoDaddy told her to upgrade. Then, upgrade again. And again.
Daily crashes continued. She paid GoDaddy a grand total of $2,200 before switching to Nexcess.
When your site is broken, you don’t need an upsell. You need a solution! With built-in autoscaling and WordPress experts on deck 24/7/365, Nexcess makes sure your site stays online and running smooth – without the upsells.
GoDaddy’s ecommerce fees add up
GoDaddy doubles their WordPress rate if you want a WooCommerce plan. And if you want to use their in-platform payment service, GoDaddy takes 5.6% of your profit, plus 30 cents.
At Nexcess, WordPress ecommerce doesn’t cost extra. Our WooCommerce plans start at the same price as WordPress, and we don’t charge extra transaction fees.
You’re 1 in 20 million, literally.
GoDaddy hosts millions of WordPress sites worldwide. That comes with tradeoffs.
You’re more than a drop in the bucket at Nexcess. Our platform specializes in supporting web-dependent businesses like yours.

Those lower than low monthly prices?
You only pay the lowest price if you sign on for 3 years of GoDaddy WordPress hosting. And you have to pay $100+ upfront.
Nexcess offers pay-as-you go pricing, and you can cancel anytime. Sure, we may cost more. But our optimizations and 24/7/365 expert support save you more time and money than GoDaddy ever will.
GoDaddy gives you 48 hours to decide
If you buy a monthly plan from GoDaddy, you only have 2 days to get your money back. That’s not enough time to see results from a host. Nexcess offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all hosting plans. We want you to be 100% satisfied with our services.

GoDaddy WordPress vs Nexcess FAQs

With over 20 million customers, GoDaddy serves the masses. If you have a basic WordPress site that doesn’t need much, GoDaddy will work for you. If you have a growing business or evolving website needs, GoDaddy WordPress hosting falls short. Nexcess optimizes WordPress for small businesses, designers, developers and entrepreneurs. Our flexible hosting makes it easy to get the exact performance requirements you need.
