GoDaddy Alternative for WooCommerce:
Managed WooCommerce Hosting by WooCart

GoDaddy vs WooCart

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.

GoDaddy vs WooCart

Why WooCart is better than GoDaddy for your WooCommerce store

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:

Superior performance on dedicated cloud servers

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.

No data loss when merging staging with live

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.

Built for store owners, not general businesses

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.

"Moving to WooCart has cut costs and improved speed."

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!

Transparent pricing and straightforward money-back guarantee

Money-Back Guarantee

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 Reviews

GoDaddy has a lot of reviews by unhappy users

GoDaddy Reviews

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!

After moving all three of my stores to WooCart I'm convinced this is the way WooCommerce should have been built from the beginning. WooCart gets us out of all the WooCommerce tech headaches so we can focus on running our business. Huge thanks to the WooCart team for their amazing support and product.

“This is the way WooCommerce should have been built!”

On WooCart staging publish does not overwrite your new orders and customers

Better staging on WooCart

GoDaddy offers a basic staging environment, where when you publish the staging store, it overwrites the live version. If orders were made in the meantime, they will be lost, as well as data of all new customers.

Because WooCart works only with WooCommerce, we know exactly what changes are made, and we download them before publishing the staging store. That's why we call it Lossless Staging - because there will be no loss of data.
