Does anyone have any experience using HTML code (as in GoDaddy) versus Content Management System (as in Word Press)? My webmaster suggests I switch from GoDaddy to WordPress but I'm wary. Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

GoDaddy is a hosting service.  You can install Word Press on a GoDaddy server.

I use to build all my websites using HTML, but I have since switched to Word Press for 99% of the work I get hired to do.  It's easy to use, other people can add to the site so they don't have to bug me all the time.  Also there are a lot of plug-in for the software. 

The whole idea about a CMS is providing standard solutions for websites. Overall most people want the same kind of websites with many similar useful features. Building it all from scratch can take up a lot of time and effort and even then there is a high risk of bugs and errors. Even if you want to create something that a CMS is unable to provide, many CMS's (like Drupal or Joomla) provide the option to add custom modules to them. They also come along with standard modules, like a blog. These kind of CMS's do need to be configured more when setting up your website, but it is usually not that complicated. Something like Wordpress mainly focuses on a blog-type of website, so you only get that and you don't need to configure much.
