GoDaddy vs Shopify: What are the differences?

What is GoDaddy? The Web's largest hosting and domain registration provider. Go Daddy makes registering Domain Names fast, simple, and affordable.

What is Shopify? Quickly and easily create a beautiful online store with Shopify. Shopify powers tens of thousands of online retailers including General Electric, Amnesty International, CrossFit, Tesla Motors, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Foo Fighters, GitHub, and more. Our platform allows users to easily and quickly create their own online store without all the technical work involved in developing their own website, or the huge expense of having someone else build it. Shopify lets merchants manage all aspects of their shops: uploading products, changing the design, accepting credit card orders, and viewing their incoming orders and completed transactions.

GoDaddy and Shopify are primarily classified as "Domain Registration" and "Ecommerce" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by GoDaddy are:

  • Private Registration- Keeps your personal information private, protecting you from spam, scams and worse.
  • GeoDomainMap Tool- Quickly search for and register all the available domain names for a particular area or region (e.g. CedarRapidsCreativeWriters.com).
  • Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)- Register .COM, .NET, .ORG and other popular domain names in any one of over 100 native languages, ranging from Afrikaans to Vietnamese. Search using English or native character sets.

On the other hand, Shopify provides the following key features:

  • Choose from 100+ professional themes
  • Customize the look of your online store
  • Start accepting orders in minutes

"Flexible payment methods for domains " is the primary reason why developers consider GoDaddy over the competitors, whereas "Affordable yet comprehensive" was stated as the key factor in picking Shopify.

According to the StackShare community, Shopify has a broader approval, being mentioned in 154 company stacks & 36 developers stacks; compared to GoDaddy, which is listed in 47 company stacks and 29 developer stacks.
