FAQ

  1. How big will my zoom appear?

    If you are using GoDaddy Online Store, there is a 600 pixel restriction in place (set by GoDaddy). No matter how large your images are only 600 pixel width will be used.

    For GoDaddy Website Builder users, images as large as 5000 px can be uploaded, but the largest they'll show on your website is as 1920 px x 1080 px.
