    I have godaddy as a host for one of my sites. I don't understand why everybody here hates them.
    all I care about is that my site should be always up, and load fast. and this is the case. I never contact customer support so I dont know if they are rude or why you guys hate godaddy.
    it is time for me to renew hosting, I dont know if i should stay with them or go with another company?

    Well, I seem to hate Godaddy because of it's unusable control panel.

    If you're in support to SOPA then stick with them.

    If you're against SOPA get your hosting and domain from registrar outside United states.

    It's because they truly and utterly suck. In the last few years they've seriously started to annoy me.

    Random bills popping up on my account, buggy control panel, horrible customer support. Slowwwwwwwww. Maybe if you have 1 or 2 sites its not a big deal, but if you manage 20+ sites then GoDaddy is the worst.

    As a domain registrar, they stink. Name.com or Namecheap. Much better.

    As a hosting provider, they should be shut down. I almost rate them equal to 1&1. -___-

    ok, so who do you guys recommend for hosting? the only things i care about:
    my site should be always up
    load fast (for seo reasons)

    hi guys, just another question, does hostgator suspend for spam reports?

    Try to find non-us based host as that is option that makes sense against SOPA. You can check site5 UK or other UK based hosts.

    yes, hostgator or any other web host does suspend for spam reports.
