“Managed WordPress” is simply GoDaddy’s web hosting account with WordPress installed.
Once you sign in to your GoDaddy account and click on Manage, you will be able to easily set up a new WordPress site, manage an exisiting one you’ve set up with GoDaddy Managed WordPress or migrate an existing WordPress site to GoDaddy.
Right there, you can as well restore files and database from the last 30 days, change dns settings, delete your site and content etc You can as well easily see the database URL, username and password of your site, which can be used to connect to phpMyAdmin.
Setting up an new site with GoDaddy “Managed WordPress” is quite easy. You only have to select a domain name to use, then enter the username and password to use for the new site. Thereafter, GoDaddy gets to work creating your website, and in just a few minutes or less you’ll see your brand new dashboard.
It also makes WordPress migration easy too. After providing login and FTP details of your existing WordPress site, GoDaddy will install a plugin on your existing site and copy your files (including wp-config) and databases.
Managing sites you’ve set up with “Managed WordPress” is quite easy too. Just click on “Manage” and GoDaddy places you directly in the WordPress admin panel, so there’s no complication and nothing superfluous.
Automatic updates through WordPress’ built-in functionality
A plugin blacklist to make sure you don’t inadvertently install website-damaging plugins
Enhanced security through restricting file access

Because of these accounts’ optimized configurations, there are also some limitations to be mindful of.
Managed WordPress does not support WordPress MU/Multisite
Its hosting back-end does not come with a control panel, so tools like Cron jobs are not available
