    Hi,

    I normally don't do business with Godaddy, but they had something I couldn't resist.

    Wordpress hosting for $1/m - is what they currently have on offer. I wouldn't use it for my main site (because I don't trust godaddy) but seems decent for a PBN. I'm willing to be if you space out your purchase you'll be able to get unique (relative to your existing) IP's.

    Cheers

    XH

    Remember, you get what you pay for: pay peanuts, get monkeys.

    Think what that $1 has to go towards - the server, the electricity, the air cooling, any licenses and then you have support to pay for...all that for a buck?

    As for saying you don't see any problems yet, nobody will see a problem until something goes wrong - then you will see second rate support and you will be out a whole buck and possibly your hosting files, website etc etc

    Cheap != Good or dependable or worthwhile

    However, if you are happy who are we to tell you differently.

    Just keep your own backups, daily at least.

    I just read about a guy, buying some Godaddy host, and godaddy auto blocks search engine traffic because they think, it'll slow their server.

    Having used it personally (for a matter of hours), the $1 fee isn't worth the hassle that comes by using the service in general. It's already been mentioned above that you keep regular backups of your website files, I HIGHLY recommend this should you choose to use GoDaddys $1 hosting offer!

    It sounds like a good deal. I just think it'll be annoying to register all those new accounts.

    I don't know why is everyone not looking at a broader image? They do this so they can grab $50-$70 in a year for the same site. You probably get that price for the first year.

    They do the same thing for website builder. They offer you $1/month, but when the first year is gone the price is $70-ish/year.

    I know that cheap blackhatters wont be paying for hosting once $1/month offer is gone, but I am sure 99% of everybody else will, abd that's how GD earn their money.

    Just back up your website to your drive. Your whole site. There are plenty of guides on how to do this. I do it with my sites in case of a server failing.

    In the past I could simply not understand why everybody was against godaddy. Then I decided to purchase their "unlimited" hosting. I set-up a few sites and started the whole SEO cycle. I now have 503 errors hitting my sites and reducing my earning revenue. I am most definitely looking at other hosting options as this has an impact on my earning potential.

    it should be a trick somewhere, they can't make profits with that price. Probably at some points they will force the users to upgrade and some of them will do it because they don't know how to migrate from them
