I started out with GoDaddy but after a couple of years I got fed up with their interface and their aggressive sales tactics. I moved over to HostGator because I wanted Cpanel and I have found them to to be very good and responsive to any problems I have had, which have been very few.
hostmonster is also not too bad!
Well they do host a ton of clients. So sometimes they've got to catch up with all of their work.
godaddy is not that bad, but yeh they do have problem and its a bit more expensive compare to other sites.
Host gator has worked for me... I have multiple hosting plans with them
GoDaddy is so overpriced, their control panel sucks balls too.
yeah, hostgator are ok, I had instant DNS update when I ordered my domains (from namecheap.), the website was up and running within minutes.
never had a problem with godaddy, dont trust them for BH though
GoDaddy is way too expensive for all the competition out there...
i use them for 2 yrs now.. never had any problem
GoDaddy is pretty bad, just look at godaddysucks.com
And for the above member, I'd move hosts right about now.
It is true that GoDaddy's pricing is expensive and that their control panel sucks, but they are good for being reliable.
Other webhosts you will experience downtimes, slow loading speeds etc, but I havn't noticed this with GoDaddy, so thats the main reason why I use them
Yes Godaddy is dreadful host I agree
I've heard some horror stories about godaddy, but besides that its just too expensive for the average marketer.
I use godaddy only for domain reg and no problems with it...
I do the same as supermat007, use the smaller resellers that charge peanuts and offer unlimited accounts. I've been using this method for years and only once did I suffer a 3 day blackout, most of the time the service has been incredible and even got some great customer support - they set up cronjobs and deal with any small issues I have had.
if you run a big site godaddy is great. Hostmonster and hostgator and any of those budget hosts will kick you out quick. plus godaddy allows all sorts of sites they allow adult content. if you have a big site you can go with vps or dedicated.
Only problem i have with them is that their automatic systems suck donkey balls. They always fuck something up when you just register something new and i end up having to call them; shouldnt be like that. But once your set up you shouldnt have any further problems.
