Are you unhappy with your WooCommerce store on GoDaddy and are looking for alternatives? Or are you thinking of using GoDaddy for your store but are not sure yet?
You came to the right page! While we may be biased, we are confident that WooCart is the better solution for your store. Let us explain.
We host only WooCommerce. Nothing else, not even WordPress, much less any other platform. GoDaddy has hosting for everything. Just like you don't go to the supermarket for high-end audio equipment, so shouldn't you use a general host for your WooCommerce store.
Here are a few things WooCart does better because we specialize in WooCommerce:
We've configured everything around WooCommerce and performance. Dedicated resources on Google Cloud give you far more control and better speed than GoDaddy's shared hosting.
WooCart's Lossless Staging allows you to easily merge staging with live without loss of order or customer data. GoDaddy's staging will overwrite all your orders and customers on the live store.
Everything, from the dashboard to tools, is built around the requirements and needs of store owners, not just regular site owners.
All this means faster stores and more conversions, easier updates, and less stress over potential hacks and tools to make your WooCommerce store simpler to manage.
I approached WooCart as we wanted a specialist WooCommerce hosting company that could help squeeze extra value from every single visitor.
WooCart certainly delivered! Not only have they helped us increase the load speed of our stores but they have also saved us a ton of money in hosting fees at the same time, bonus!
If you are looking for WooCommerce hosting, I would recommend WooCart all day long!
After some research, we stumbled across WooCart and it's a blast: great (and scalable) performance and exceptional customer service. They helped us set everything up (thanks to the store Wizard you are ready to go in minutes), recommended suitable plugins, and kept an eye on our store metrics.
Together with transactional emails out of the box and Lossless Staging, we now can fully concentrate on our business - always knowing, that if we need just anything the WooCart team is just a single click away, ready to help!

GoDaddy has a very complicated signup process where they require a full address and your phone number. We need only your email and payment method.
Even though GoDaddy advertises a very low price, it's only for a 3-year advance payment. If you want to pay monthly, the prices go up 200%! And even with the 3-year advance payment, the renewal price is much higher.
WooCart pricing is very transparent – what you see on the pricing page is what you pay. If you need addons, the price is clearly seen. No price increase on renewals, no higher price on monthly payments.
GoDaddy has a very ambiguous policy on issuing refunds:
If a Hosting Service has already been performed, then it is non-refundable (if not yet performed, eligible for a refund within 30 days of the date of the transaction).
We are very confident that you will love hosting on WooCart, so we have a very straightforward money-back guarantee: no-questions-asked.
GoDaddy is the most popular domain registrar and one of the largest hosting providers. That, in itself, does not guarantee quality.
If you search for GoDaddy reviews and check the ones that allow public comments, you will see a large percentage of unhappy, sometimes even very angry customers. Users complain about severe data loss, regular 503 errors, poor customer service, and slow sites.
With WooCart you get daily and manual backups and can use staging whenever to restore any version. When errors occur, we tell you why in the Error Logs. Our excellent customer support is by people who live and breathe WooCommerce, and have been in the space for years. The Google Cloud servers are optimized for WooCommerce and are the fastest in the industry.
Plus, we have a free trial so you can easily try us out!
