Godaddy shared hosting
I am hosting my website with godaddy.com from last 1.5 months. In this thime i have purchased some other products of godaddy as well. But i particularly like their hosting because of their hosting metropolitan section. As i am not a very experienced programmer so it really helps in installing custom made scripts with just a click.
Till now i have not faced any uptime problems.
The one issue which really bothers me is that they have made their site very complicated. You will have to read their help section a lot if you are new with them.
While making a purchase pay extra attention as they sometimes add extra products to their cart.
GoDaddy makes things easy
I have been hosting my website with GoDaddy for 7 months now and I am very satisfied with the service that they are providing. Once, I had some problems with my account and it got closed. I contacted the GoDaddy team and they looked into the problem. The refunded the entire amount that I paid and let me create a new shared hosting account. I was delighted. Their customer service is very good. No matter at what time you call, you can find that their representatives are online and ready to talk to you. Its really wonderful. But, their technical support isnt that good. I have to say that I have had some technical issues that took really long to be solved. Maybe this is where they lack. But you cannot hope to get as many features provided for such a low cost.
Biggest Pro: Customer Support
Biggest Con: Technical Support
I tried many web hosts but they are simply the best
I tried many web hosts but they are simply the best.They never bothered me for this and that.My servives was perfectly up .Unlimited emails.Prompt reply whenever i have asked them for help.I never have a bandwidth and disk space issue with them .I never had a server load issue with them which normally all ISP used to do they force sites on shared hosting plans to shift to dedicated one.They are allready best in selling domains and due to there sincere effort they have kept themselve very fast in providing all the services.Although i donot like the control panel of shared hosting .But overall my expierence is very good with them.
Biggest Pro: Honest
Biggest Con: cpanel
GoDaddy Hosting - Not As Good As I Thought
I have been using GoDaddy as my hosting service to host my website that is hosted right now on different hosting company. I personally wasn't happy with GoDaddy shared hosting, because my website was loading really slow and the uptime of the site wasn't so excellent as the technical support said. The price is not that bad for the hosting plans, but I would not suggest you to use their hosting because your site will load really slow and you the site won't be even to uptime of 95%.
I have a love/hate relationship with Go Daddy
I have a love hate relationship with my Web host, Go Daddy. This popular Web host is great for quick domain name registrations, especially considering that they offer domain name registrations for 1.99 when you purchase two months of hosting for only $3.99 per month. Go Daddy has about a million different packages for aspiring e-commerce developers, bloggers, Google Adsense users, pretty much anything about Web development that anyone may want to learn, Go Daddy has a package with a monthly fee to make the process easier.
However keeping in mind that many other Web hosts offer discount plans for multiple domain names (commonly referred to as reseller accounts), for a Web publisher, Go Daddy bills can get quite out of hand. Though Go Daddy offers reseller accounts, their packages do not offer comparable features, MySQL tables and access as Go Daddy. Therefore, if you are hosting 10 different sites, it is a $40 per month bill that you will be footing. Go Daddy is very convenient for quick site set-ups that need fast turn-over. They also offer email packages, MySQL tables, PHP access and many other services that come with the hosting plan that allow a Web Developer to throw a site up quick for about $10 (2 months hosting for $8 plus domain registration for $2). GoDaddy offers easy site maintenance with a very convenient control panel to maintain all the various aspects of a site.
In addition, Go Daddy offers a very convenient domain name control panel as well. However one thing that I have found disheartening about Go Daddy is their telephone customer support. I have often pulled my hair out trying to get information on problems related to my site. I have often been told different things by different technical support representatives and that makes it difficult to trust Go Daddy for any long tern service. Additionally, I have found Go Daddy’s domain redemption policy somewhat terrorist-like. If you fail to renew your domain name in a timely manner, Go Daddy will hold it in redemption before releasing it to other registrars and in order to pull it out of redemption, it costs $150. That seems a little exorbitant to me. They also have a policy regarding their backups where if you need to access any files from the backups, they will charge you $150. Again, that seems exorbitant in comparison to other hosts. In my opinion, Go Daddy offers a very user-friendly service for the novice Web publisher. However for the educated consumer, Go Daddy is very overpriced and you will find yourself hairless dealing with their technical support representatives.
Going with GoDaddy
I have had great success with this company and plan to keep on going. I now have five domains with them and plan to add more soon. They heled me with some technical support issues on the Windows platform and quickly got me up and running. Their control panel is easy to use and monitor your sites and account. And to the best of my knowledge the site has been up and running with little down time. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for reliable and easy to use hosting.
fast and cheap but quality sucks
Sure it's cheap, sure the uptime is good. But it's the little things, many of the little things are not bundled with GoDaddy.com.
I would recommend GoDaddy.com for basic websites but if you want to take your site to the next level GoDaddy is lacking to many essential features to run a powerful PHP web site.
Biggest Pro: Easy to use
Biggest Con: Lack of MOD-rewrite functionality
I have been hosted with godaddy for a few months now and I got to say overall it has been very good. My site has not been very demanding yet, so I can't say much about heavy traffic tolerance, but the uptime has been very good, 99 % i would say. I have had some questions to be handled with the support and I have to say that the best thing about godaddy is their support. On different times the support staff has been very polite and fast. On the negative side I would mention the complexity of registration and the hosting panel. On registration you have to scroll trough numerous ads, which might be quite annoying, but luckily you have to do it only once. The hosting panel is strange for me, because I have spent most of the time using cpanel. Still considering the ups and downs, the product you get for the money is excellent so I really recommend Godaddy.
Biggest Pro: support
Biggest Con: registration
Review for Go Daddy Hosting
I've heard bad reviews about GoDaddy, I've been with them for more than 6 months without any problems. I just use their basic services so that could be the reason that I don't get bad service.
I haven't had a problem with downtime, like I have had with other webhosting companies.
With their control panel, everything is simple to navigate and organize, all your domains, hosting plans, databases, etc... I've never setup a MySQL database, but with their control panel it was very simple. It's very simple to install applications such as WordPress in just a couple minutes.
Good customer service, and good prices. I had no idea you could purchase 1 hosting plan and host about 600 domains (or some high number) on that one particular hosting plan. In the beginning when I first started I would purchase a domain and a web hosting plan, for every website I wanted to start. Then one day I was on the phone with them for a cust support issue. They suggested to me, that I can pay a couple extra dollars per month on my hosting plan to get a deluxe plan, and then I can host about 600 domains with that hosting plan. So, I don't have to purchase web hosting for every domain. They cancelled all the other services, and even gave me a refund! Then signed me up with the plan that would save me money in the long run.
I'm not trying to sell their service, that's why I didn't list prices, what I'm trying to say is they didn't have to tell me that, they could just make more money without me me knowing that information, and I'm sure all web hosting companies work like that, so in the future I could go somewhere else and do the same thing, but it was information that was provided to me to help me save some money. Instead of the company trying to make more money from an uninformed customer. I think that qualifies as good customer service.
GoDaddy is overpriced, but there is a reason I'm keeping them
- They never go down. Stable as a rock.
- They have 24/7 phone technical support. (Which is the real reason I won't switch away from them. I like to tinker with websites, but I'm not a hosting/server expert, so I often find myself calling at 3am.)
-- Tech support people are helpful. They know their stuff and can answer questions quickly and efficiently.
-- There's never a long wait time on the phone. And it's not hard to get a real person.
-- The website is very annoying. It's hard to tell an ad from a feature. You can't even manage your own domains without having to flip through 5 ads for "upgrading your service". It's impossible to find what you're looking for on their site.
-- Very expensive. I could easily find stable hosting for far less.
-- Tech support calls are long distance calls.
-- You only get one email per domain name with their deluxe hosting plan. I don't think it would kill them to give me 5-- especially for the money I pay.
Overall: I'm sticking with them because I am a night owl who frequently registers domain names and wants them up and running quickly. Their tech support is alwaysthere, which is comforting to me.
I've been with other companies who either a) put me on hold forever or b) like to respond to tech support via email only. Godaddy has real people on real phones.
I don't like the price... or their website's insanely impossible navigation... but I'm sticking with them for now.
Biggest Pro: 24/7 telelphone tech support
Biggest Con: annoying website & high price
