I recently used GoDaddy website builder for 1 month trial. They charged me over $200 after my 1 month trial, even though I never selected a plan.

All I did was click "TRY FOR FREE" and "CONTINUE". There was never any agreement to be charged after the trial and they just build credit card of mine they had on file.

This is outrageous!

Has anyone else had GoDaddy charged them for their website design and marketing services without permission?

Dispute the charge. Contact GoDaddy and explain what happened. They will probably reverse the charge.

Bear in mind that most so-called trials where they ask for credit card information will do that, not just at GoDaddy but anywhere. It's a somewhat shady but very common marketing technique.

My personal policy is if I want to try something and they ask for a credit card I either
  1. pass on the deal: I don't like that practice, even though it is very common; or
  2. if it's something I really want to try, I will sign up but then cancel immediately or within a couple of days.
