    Using professionalwebsite developer

    Hi,

    Just bought a new domain name and playing around with the Website Builder.  However, can I hire a local website development company to use their own tools etc to build my website or do they have to use GoDaddy tools?  How would I give them access to public to my domain name to publish the website?  Is Website Builder as sophisticated and powerful as other tools they would use?  

     

    Thanks,

    AD

    So GoDaddy Website + Marketing platform is a hosted solution / software product - all of your site design / updates etc are done via the website itself.

     

    If you wanted a local professional to work on the platform you would have to give them delegated access to your account so they can get in without using your user ID and password. 

     

    It's hard to answer the comparison question without knowing what your goals of the site are - If you are looking for a complex membership system or a shopping cart that has a lot of options then it won't be the right fit. However, if you are looking for a easy to use builder that does have commerce ability it is a great product to use.
