    DO NOT EVER get hosting from GoDaddy.com. I signed up for their wordpress hosting $1/month for 12 months + free domain. MY BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!! It is slow as hell! Takes forever to load and their wordpress admin area is almost impossible to work with due to the shitty speed. Their customer service reps cannot speak english at all it and the majority of them are stupid. Their hold times are insane. GoDaddy probably is only good for getting domains and that's it!! WATCH OUT PEOPLE!

    There are a few threads about godaddy and their lack of support since the company was sold. Are you looking for a new host?

    Godaddy is bullshit. They charge money for support. Fuck them and move on to other host.

    I wouldn't say spending $12 ever ends up as "the biggest mistake ever", especially since you at least got a domain out of the deal lol. But yeah I've heard GoDaddy is awful for hosting, never tried them myself though.

    This is nothing new. they have been doing this for YEARS. Just go with another hosting company and buy your domains from name cheap, 1and1, bluehost, etc.

    i've always thought that godaddy servers were slower. even the main godaddy site, it just has a "feel" to it that seems cheap.

    A lot of bad reviews being passed around lately on the forum about godaddy. About time since this idiots
    steal domain names right out from under users searching.

    Being such a large company I'd expect much more from them but at the same time what do you expect for $1/month. This is why I feel the unlimited host concept giving away anything to sign up a hosting client just doesn't work. I miss the good old days of smaller web hosts who provided actual customer service. I hope you find better luck with another host.

    GoDaddy is only good for their domain auctions...can find some decent deals on aged or PR domains. For any other purchase I always go with Namecheap...not constant upsells for every little thing that nobody who knows anything really needs. I also wouldn't host my stuff with them either based on a lot of what I read. Seems big companies like GoDaddy and HostGator get tons of business but don't know how to really treat their customers.

    GoDaddy only for domains and only with coupon codes and that's it! They started having problems with their web hosting service at least 4+ years ago. Looks like they have not improved anything on the hosting part since then.
