GoDaddy supports 256-Bit Encryption and is compatible with any type of browser and works with unlimited servers. There is a SSL Installation Tool, in case you are new to SSL. And, the pricing is extremely cheap. The service is just over $5.25 per month, as of February 2012.
Available options in GoDaddy to purchase
GoDaddy has many features that you can set up. If you want to buy a domain, the pricing starts at almost ten dollars for top domains such as .com, .net, or .org. You can even buy e-mail service. The e-mail service includes a free calendar and a free online file folder. Viruses and SPAM e-mail are pretty popular in getting into people’s e-mail accounts. However, you can get a Virus checker and a SPAM e-mail blocker for the e-mail accounts that you will be configuring. GoDaddy initially offers a web based e-mail to check from your website. This can be set up as mail.yourdomain.com or webmail.yourdomain.com. You can customize the colors and the outlook of the web mail, by editing the preferences of your web mail server. You have to log on as administrator in order to do this. If you are on the run, you do not have to check your e-mail on the web server. You can have the e-mails downloaded to your favorite e-mail client such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird, and other clients for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, as well as Google Chrome. The web mail is secure, and is supported through IMAP and POP protocols. When you set up your e-mail account on your home computer to be configured to your webmail account, make sure that you have the mail stay on the server. The POP mail will delete your mail on the server if you select the option to not leave the mail on the server.
