Compare A2 Hosting vs Godaddy

The speed graph on this page compares average loading times for a webpage on GoDaddy and A2 Hosting. We gathered these results from diagnostics we collected before and after a website was moved from GoDaddy to A2 Hosting. At A2 Hosting, we do not gauge whether websites moving from GoDaddy had any specialized packages concerning speed. It also does not take into account whether the website is using a specialized speed package from A2 Hosting (for example, our “Turbo” package). It is simply a before and after test to find the average load time for a website hosted with A2 Hosting and GoDaddy.

Who Is GoDaddy?

GoDaddy is a web hosting and domain registration company currently located in Scottsdale, Arizona. GoDaddy was founded by Bob Parsons in 1997 originally in Baltimore, Maryland. Its first name was actually Jomax Technologies. In 1999, Jomax Technologies' employees discussed the need for a company name change. The name "Big Daddy" was originally discussed as an alternative, but it was unavailable. This was when GoDaddy was discussed and ultimately chosen as the company's official name.

In 2006, GoDaddy planned to take their company public by filing an S-1 registration statement. However, this was later rescinded due to fluctuations within the marketplace at that time. In September 2010, GoDaddy was put up for auction and was later purchased in 2011 by a number of private equity firms including KKR and Silver Lake Partners.

In 2011, founder Bob Parsons stepped down as CEO and was transitioned into an Executive Chairman position. A few years later in 2014, Parsons once again moved positions moving from his Executive Chairman role and onto GoDaddy's Board of Directors. That same year, GoDaddy once again filed to make their company public. It was determined at the time that GoDaddy had not made a profit since 2009 and had lost over $500 million since the year 2012. GoDaddy went public in 2015, nine years after it had filed its first IPO.
