It's pretty easy to compare GoDaddy and A2 Hosting because, even though their pricing is similar, one is MUCH better than the other. GoDaddy web hosting has many problems. Sure it is convenient to order, especially if you already have your domain names registered with them, but my experience is that WordPress runs extremely SLOW. It's caused by 2 things, they don't let you upgrade the PHP version to 7 and they choke the memory available to your website. Not only will your website load slower, there will be numerous problems with different WordPress themes and plugins that need more memory. A2 Hosting doesn't suffer from any of these problems, thank goodness. And they also offer free SSL certificates for additional savings. So basically anyone would be crazy to host a website with GoDaddy, so A2 Hosting wins this comparison easily.
