    Just want to know what everyone thinks.
    Hosting and Domain names wise.

    I am thinking about using them, and want some good information beforehand if at all possible.


    Thanks in advance!

    I have only used them to purchase a couple of expired domains, and quite frankly they are awful, I purchase all my domains through name.com now.

    Hosting is something they got into once they saw it was profitable they were originally domain name sellers, from what I have read Godaddy hosting is not very good.

    For web hosting there are better companies Hostgator, Bluehost, Justhost to name a few.

    So NO I would not recommend Godaddy.

    I buy domains and used to host at GD.

    I switched to hostgator for hosting as it is more cost effective - I must say I have never had a problem with GD but lots of other people have if you read this forum alone there are lots of complaints about them.

    I used to buy domains from them, but moved all of them to Namecheap.
    Also had a VPS for about 1 year without problems. I moved the VPS away only because I'm targeting my sites for a different country (and the location is a very important factor).
