I've had experiences with wix (just webservice alone-not for seed sales) and it was less than desireable.
Wix basically offers extensions for free domain sites. The bandwidth is low and the pages load slooooow. Sometimes not at all if your page gets a lot of traffic.

godaddy is the way to go if you want an all in one solution IMO... the crucial part is not so much the web builder as it is the merchant accepting your payments... all the security can get built in to make you "safe"

thats actually what I have my site through now is godaddy. Their hosting /webbuilder pkg is a lil pricey but it is user friendly and very fast. Easy for someone with little experience to go from building a decent site to taking payments within a few hrs.

when we say lil pricey are we talkin like a few hundred?
If you hired someone local to build your site this is the way to go... also third party payment is way cheaper than what go daddy offers stock...web builder is free for the first month right now when you buy a domain.. you can get something for less than $50 out the door with private hosting for a year....

do you keep it active? Are you using the web builder? you usually have some options to downgrade on godaddy to keep things cheaper... but as far as hosting, its really not gonna be cheaper anywhere else.

It depends how proficient you are. You can spin up a VPS for relatively cheap on the likes of DigitalOcean and Linode, but you'll need to be comfortable managing the server configuration and platform installation/maintenance yourself. Plus, the payment situation can get a whole lot more complex depending on the platform you choose to use (Wordpress/Laravel/Django/name-a-framework).

GoDaddy has a whole lot to offer in that regard.

yup... Go daddy also has full time staff to walk you through anything you need tech wise... really helpful if you just want to learn the basics... if you don’t... they will also make changes over the phone or thru chat...I’m also still stuck inside here on lock down...so if anyone needs a hand I can try and help out.

I'd only note GoDaddy has had shit security for customer records. This may be part of why, cheap. I do cloud work and sort of have them in only-poke-with-a-stick status for the time being. The onus of security is on the customer and not the provider. Remember that.

interesting point.But shouldn’t I be able to fortify customer information by using a reliable third party payment portal? Or is there is a back door I am missing here?
