It’s easy and fast – GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder.

A promotional item was provided to me for today’s discussion: GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder. The host for this event is Still Blonde after all these Years

Building a new website can seem daunting, and when you hire someone else to do to the job, it can get expensive.  With GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder, it’s very affordable AND quite easy to master. Not sure if this is something for you? Then give the Free Trial Offer *a try! You can get a one month trial at no cost whatsoever.  No credit card needed to sign up. (Offer ends 4/10)

I was given the opportunity to create a website and share my experience.  GoDaddy claims that one can create a great site in just an hour. That sounded pretty intriguing to me, so on your mark, get set….GO!

My Experience Using GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder

I clicked on the free trial offer and chose to create a business site.  I was asked to provide an email address, create a user name, password and pin. Once that was done, I was asked to pick a topic – what my website would be about.   I typed in Pet, and was given several options (such as pet groomer, pet walker, pet trainer, etc.).  Next, I needed to choose a name for the site. When that was done, I clicked on See Your Design.  After a few seconds a plethora of options appeared on my screen – 18 in all.

This is the design that I found most fitting.

As you can see in the ScreenShot above, one can edit their site as they see fit.  Simply click on Edit and work through the options. Absolutely NO html coding experience is needed.  GoDaddy GoCentral does all that for you. As I went through the steps provided, I was able to see the designs as the site was “built”.

Not sure what each step entails?  No worries.  Information is provided to help you understand what is needed, and why it’s important. For my site, I want readers to subscribe, so they are notified when a new post has been published.

Adding images is a breeze.  I was able to upload from my computer in just a matter of seconds. By clicking on any area, information can be quickly typed in. I opted for an “About Us” page that included our Background, our Pets and Fun Times.

In addition, a Subscribe feature and Contact Us!

See the green tear drop with the white plus sign, in the lower right hand side of the photo, below?  When you click on it, a whole range of options appears.

  • Calendar (to add dates of events)
  • Content (such as FAQ, testimonials, additional site information)
  • Files (attach PDF’s and more)
  • Gallery (of  images and photos)
  • Sell Online (add items for sale or those accepted for donations)
  • Social (link all social media accounts)
  • Video (embed YouTube or Vimeo videos)

 

Once I got started, I couldn’t stop.  I decided, since it was so easy to do, that I would change the theme layout and add my own images for the cover photo.  Here is the final result.

To sum up my thoughts on GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder
  • No html coding knowledge needed
  • Great graphics, fonts and color options
  • Creating website was quick and easy to use
  • Adding marketing tools – SEO, social media, etc. was a cinch
  • It is possible to completely create a new website in less than an hour
  • End result – a professional looking site with all the bells and whistles

I imagine this would be super helpful for someone just starting out. Thanks for sharing it with your readers!

  15. Go daddy has a great deal and reliable. I live their services and the customer service is really amazing.

  16. We used GoDaddy in the very beginning when we started creating a bunch of websites. A free month is an excellent incentive to get started on building your first website.

  17. This is a great service. I have my husband who helps me with my site, but if I were to set it up from scratch by myself, I would love to use this service by Go Daddy!

  18. Looks like a great service, my only concern would be ease of getting content back off it in the event we wanted to migrate services.
