    Good evening everyone ! ;)
    I just watch the intro of the new 4GH (Godaddy) and I'm really attracted to the "unlimited websites" idea.

    So I wanted to know if it was worth it.
    What do you think guys ? :confused:

    "unlimited websites"?
    dude... a dedicated server can host 500 medium websites (medium... like 500 blogs each with 1000+ web pages)

    so, there is no such thing as unlimited...
    get a cheap host that covers your needs now and when you have more websites next step can be:
    $30-$40 VPS with cpanel & 1 GB RAM, 1000 MB Bandwidth
    This kind of vps can host easy 50-75 websites

    Everyone says it's not worth it but the truth is, no one really gives arguments.
    So why it sucks ?
    Do you know any reliable and cheap webhosting that allows multiple websites ?

    I have Godaddy 4GH .NET hosting, the cheapest packet for more than 2 years. My site has 100k visitors every month, and it works quite well. For me it's really unlimited: I can even do things that aren't allowed by other hostings. There are some moments the site is a bit slower, but that's ok for me for that low price. But you have to know I made my site on my own and it's heavily speed optimized and I use Cloudflare too.

    Why would you even use Godaddy for hosting?

    The time to first byte on godaddy auto makes all the 4gh slow. Anyone PM me a blank wordpress site on hostgator I want to compair the two. If it's a working site thats also fine.

    To give you an idea i've seen between 1 to 2.6 seconds on a CLEAN wp site. This means that either the DB is overloaded or the disk's are overloaded. It got far worse with plugins. So just reviewing other people now. Would rather test one before signup with hostgator though!

    p.s. test with http://www.webpagetest.org Results of hostgator is at http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120505_RX_47RER/1/details/ (half a second time to first byte).

    To be fair most places close you if you have a spike of traffic even hostgator if you google it. What happens after is how it's sorted though I imagine godaddy would be better for the upsell to vps or dedicated than most but sucky either way.

    I use Godaddy Deluxe 4GH , Cheap, Reliable & not had a problem with speed...

    For the price i think it's perfect, They send me regular 30% off codes etc.. via email too so i have been paying month by month so far..

    it is what it is tbh, cheap shared hosting :) if there comes a point when that hosting is no good for your site, it is time to upgrade anyway lol

    The only thing i do not rate with Godaddy is their customer support...they have no clue..

    I'm quite supprised with the godaddy support, have any of you done any real testing? I mean their shared platform for initial connection is 10x slower than dedicated servers.. I've been out the game to long to know how it is elsewhere but considering it's a minor ranking factor it all counts!
