Both Digital Ocean and GoDaddy are in the ‘mid-tier’ of hosting solutions, each offering good options to their customers. While GoDaddy is by far the better known company of the two, they actually don’t perform quite as good in almost any area. Digital Ocean offers better reliability, lower prices, and more features for all their customers. They also have a better overall user rating. Digital Ocean also serves people throughout Europe, where GoDaddy does not operate. For these reasons, and many others, Digital Ocean is named as the winner in this comparison.
