Just export the content from current site + setup a new WordPress site + use the import content feature in WordPress.

This will only work if GoDaddy's Website builder will export files WordPress can understand.

If you only have a few pages of content, then just cut + paste the content out of GoDaddy pages, directly into the WordPress post editor.

If you have many pages, likely best to use something like wget --mirror to pull all content from the site + then write a simple script using wp-cli to generate WordPress posts from the mirrored content.

If you have many pages of content to convert, then best hire someone who understands how to do this. The process is simple + requires a good bit of time to get working.
It all depends on what existing website is build upon. If you can share more technical details on existing website I can recommend.  Yes you can move to word press. I will recommend going for shared hosting on hostgator you will get better return of investment on the $$. Godaddy shared hosting is not the best as per my experience.


thanks for godaddy and wordrpess assistance
