GoDaddy just launched GoCentral, an innovative website builder that work seamlessly on mobile.

Besides, it’s easier than ever to update or customize an existing website with model content than to build one from the start.
GoDaddy’s inspiration to develop GoCentral was sparked by the outcomes of a Small Business Survey conducted in 2015. In this survey, it was discovered that well above 59 percent of the micro and small businesses operated without a website. According to the General Manager and Senior Vice President of GoDaddy, Lauren Antonoff, builders of traditional DIY websites misled people into believing that more attention and time should go to tweaking a page layout than generating results.
GoDaddy wanted to solve this problem by coming up with a website builder that focused more on attracting visitors, building audience, and creating enhanced mobile friendly experience all this with less focus on design. They had gathered that websites of most small businesses were accessible from mobile devices.
