Virtually all web hosts provide basically the same essential services and GoDaddy is one of them. If you're not nitpicky about built-in support for a certain development platform/language, then any host will do really. GoDaddy should be fine for the most basic of sites.

If you're going to build a site with a member system and/or features that allow registered users to interact (i.e. comments, chat), then you should look into uploading a content management system (CMS) like Drupal that's built so you have little to no coding involvement. If you're building a simple blog, setting up a Wordpress platform on your web host will do or for the easiest use, you can build a Wordpress blog on the Wordpress host and then re-route that URL to the domain name you've set up.

You lost me at Virtually.

You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
