As you can see, FastComet is definitely the more affordable option, not only in monthly payments but also they include SSLs, daily backups, and CDNs and with GoDaddy, you would have to pay for that separately and these extra costs add up. GoDaddy plans do allow for more storage, but FastComet has SSD storage which is preferable because SSD can load data much faster and a fast website matters a lot. You also get more CPUs with FastComet plans. If you already have a website on another host and you are thinking about switching to GoDaddy or FastComet, FastComet is preferable because they allow free website transfers which GoDaddy does not.

So you may be wondering – why then does GoDaddy cost that much? Well, in my opinion, it has to do with name recognition only. A lot more people have heard of GoDaddy and as a result, they can charge more. But you will get better service and better features all for a lower price with FastComet.
