Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have a website?

By creating a website for your business, you're building an online presence. Whether you're making a basic website with contact information for your small business, creating a portfolio for your freelance work or simply want a space to blog about your thoughts on food, having a website will help you share who you are and what you do with the right audience.

What is GoDaddy Website Builder?

GoDaddy’s website builder, formally called Websites + Marketing, is an online editing and publishing tool that helps you make a responsive website with no technical knowledge required.

How to create a website with GoDaddy’s Website Builder:

  1. Create a GoDaddy account.
  2. Pick a design and use the drag-and-drop editor to add your own images and text or create a contact form. You can make your website as simple or complex as you’d like.
  3. Publish your website.
  4. Expand your website as you grow. You can add a full online store complete with product listings, coupons, shopping cart, shipping and multiple payment options.

What is GoCentral website builder?

GoCentral is the former name of GoDaddy’s website builder product, now called Websites + Marketing. It’s an all-in-one website builder that comes with integrated marketing tools to grow your business. It offers hundreds of designer-made templates to choose from, or you can type an industry directly into the builder to receive a relevant, pre-populated template to customize.

Is my website really free?

Yep. You'll never be charged for our free website plan AND you get to experience the premium features of our paid plans free for 7 days. If you choose not to upgrade to a paid plan after your trial ends, you won't lose the work you've already done to your free site and you can upgrade anytime to continue enjoying premium features. You can upgrade your plan in the My Products section of your account or with the help of a GoDaddy Guide. See Website Builder plans and pricing to find one that suits your needs.

Can I customize my website?

Absolutely. Add or edit sections — like image galleries, price lists, menus, scrollable content blocks and YouTube or Vimeo videos —  to customize your website to your business needs. Every section in your website is customizable, from the name of the page, to your website’s navigation bar. You’ll also have the ability to change text, colors, styles and font. Our website builder allows you to switch back and forth between mobile and desktop layouts so you can create a website that allows visitors to comfortably view and use your website from any device.

Can I add a shopping cart to my website?

Yes. With a free website plan, you’ll be able to set up your online store and start taking payments in minutes with GoDaddy Payments. For a full-featured online store with advanced payment options, various shipping methods and increased functionality, you’ll need to upgrade to the Ecommerce plan. Once you’ve upgraded, you can accept orders and build the ultimate shopping experience with features like Apple Pay, highlighted product sections and promotional coupons. Learn more about Online Store.

Can I connect a custom domain to my free website?

During your initial 7 day free trial of premium features you can connect a custom domain to your website. At the end of your trial, your website will be moved to a temporary domain like "www.yoursitenamehere.godaddysites.com" unless you upgrade to a paid plan.

Does GoDaddy Website Builder include an SSL certificate?

Yes. In all plans, any data transmitted from your site will be encrypted using a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. This means that all data will be kept private; which is important if you want to keep your site visitors safe. If you sell products or services in your store, an SSL will protect credit card and bank numbers from being intercepted by hackers.

Can I connect my social media and website?

Yes. GoDaddy Website Builder can act as your online hub. The option to link to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube on your website gives you an advantage in communicating with your visitors. By centrally locating all the links in one place – your new website – you’re giving your online visitors a seamless experience.

Are SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tools included with Website Builder?

Select Website Builder plans come with built-in SEO tools to help your website show up in search engines like Google. In Website Builder, you’ll find the SEO Wizard, a step-by-step guide that provides suggestions on how to optimize each page of your website by adding relevant keywords and descriptions.

What is GoDaddy InSight?
