Well, first of all, I want to begin with how great it is, and then have a few complaints.
The hosting is cheap, and, in my opinion, very reliable. You have much disk space and traffic for a low amount of money (note that for the longer you buy it in one time, the less you pay). That's why I think it's great.
Now, a few of my complaints. I just LOVE cPanel, and it works soo easy. GoDaddy hasn't got cPanel, but have their own piece of software. No fantistico like thing, or whatever, you all have to upload it by yourself, because the file viewer doesn't unzip zip archives (as far as I know). And loading the control panel, or the PHPMyAdmin script seems to take ages. This isn't me, as I have a rapid internet connection.
Their support is great, I got the right answers within a reasonable time (within 24 hours).
Biggest Pro: Cheap, but reliable
Biggest Con: No cPanel
Problems coming, problems going
We have had several websites with Godaddy and we are gradually removing them all. Their "tech" support seems to consist of outsourced labor from the sub-continent that have no real connection with the caller.
If you're lucky enough to get someone fluent in English you find their knowledge is based off a set of canned replies
Oh and *woe* to anyone who wants to suggest that they could make life easier with domain name transfers, you will be subjected to a ridiculously low level of support and that is if you can get a reply.
They are fine if nothing goes wrong, but don't expect any service if (when?) something does go wrong.
Very happy to be moving the last of my sites away by the end of the year
Godaddy-not quite like the big daddy in hosting but quite good.
i myself have about ten domains hosted at godaddy.Its quite good but u will b quite disturbed from the small issues if u r a newbie like i was few months back.A few of my emails containing queries went unanswered and did not even reach the customer support that was why i was disturbed and had to wait for more.But the other side to there hosting is that it is very easy and simple to build a website using the templates and other facilities they are providing,Also they have another disadvantage that if u dont know there promo codes while buying from them u would probably pay more than others and this hurts financially u know.specially when u come to know that u could have got the same domain for 2$ less.But all these disadvantages could not weigh over the advantages that they r giving like templates,quick customer supports etc.all in all i would give it ++++ ot of five. go for it.
Biggest Pro: easy process for building websites
Great price for what I was looking for
I am really happy with this domain hosting service. I found that the price was very competitive compared to other and their website is extremely easy to use. I am surprised to see little blurbs that help me figure out what the heck I'm doing. This hosting service is great for a "noob" like me. The only problem is that it takes a while to load even though it's parked. I had a technical issue when I signed up with another hosting service and I called godaddy and they were extremely helpful. (I accidently signed up for two hosting services at the same time) godaddy charged me only 9.99 for a year for my domain whereas the other site wanted over $100. Same service, same domain... just a lower price and good customer service. I recommend godaddy for peoploe who are starting out because it's a really good price and when you're still experimenting with the idea of a website for profit, a low price makes the decision easier. I'm not sure what the website does for the more experienced because of course that's not me, but for those who don't really know much about web hosting this is definitely my top pick. The other hosting site I almost chose was so expensive and their customer service was non-existent. The people over at customer service were very knowledgeable and helpful, they were able to address my problem quickly and I didn't have to transfer to fifty different departments to get an answer. The wait time on the phone was very short and once connected I probably only spent a minute on the line before they were able to find a solution. They also didn't try to "sell" me another promotional item before getting off the line which when they do that it tends to make me feel negatively toward a company. The call was free and they made me feel as if if I ever had another problem I would be more than welcome to make another call. The woman on the line also did not give me the feeling as if she were expediting the call which made me feel as if she really cared about the issue at hand. They were clear speakers and were native to the English language which makes me more apt to use a company since it's less likely they are outsourcing. My site always loads and I've experienced very little down time. Overall I am very happy with this web hosting service and am highly likely to continue being a customer of theirs.
Biggest Pro: Tech support, price, usuability
Biggest Con: connection speed

Godaddy is awesome
We just bought the domain a few weeks ago but it is parked and is ours. We are very happy with godaddy and it will be only a few more days until we have our site up and running. Godaddy helped us with all of our needs over the phone and the price was very reasonable compared to other hosts. I highly suggest Go Daddy
My Experience with Go Daddy Hosting
I have a site with Go Daddy and have not found any times yet when my site has not been online. The back admin area is fairly user friendly but it is not the best. I would prefer the more common cpanel. One feature of Go Daddy hosting that i do like is metropolis which enables you to have some software installed automatically. From what i have found Go Daddy is probably more targeted at being user friendly to people that are new to web hosting.
Biggest Pro: Cheap
Biggest Con: No cpanel
My Site Runs Smoothly
Well It was January 2007 and I and my friend decided to have a website after having several sub-domain sites and free hosts. Before that time we had been online for around four months each doing something to earn money . By the January End we were having $30 that was enough to buy the domain and hosting for 2 months . We did the same and on February 6 we launched our site http://www.placid-mind.com and at that time we did not have enough money to get host it for whole year .But we managed .
We bought the domain and hosting at Godaddy.com and the billing was so smooth and easy that we did not even get to know when were we billed and that was so impressive .
Regarding the account : Any changes whatsoever in the domains are immediately emailed to the email account we used for registration.
Before our hosting we used free email account that looked unprofessional as well and now We have our professional account.
The server has not had any downtime , its up since the time we have purchased our hosting plan . MySQl is good but I think that they should have used a fast server for the MySQL .. opening it through web interface takes time.
Last The Account Control Panel takes time as well which I think is not advisable for small bandwidth connections .
Biggest Pro: Server Uptime 100%
Biggest Con: Account control Panel take time to load
For my hosting needs I GoDaddy!
Well my first impressions of GoDaddy's hosting was that they were going to have great uptime, great customer service, and a big price. I found that their uptime was beyond amazing, I usually have a 100% uptime for the week nowadays. My webpage also loads incredibly fast. Their support team always answers your questions politely and honestly. The pricing isn't horrid but it could be way better. That is the only thing keeping me from loving GoDaddy Hosting.
Biggest Pro: Uptime
Biggest Con: $the price$
Very Satisfied With Godaddy
I am very pleased with the service from Go daddy. Very quickly after purchasing the domain and space I had everything setup and running. I have not experienced any downtime since I have had the service. Everything loads fast on the site and I feel like I am getting a generous amount of bandwidth for the price. Not only this, but the best thing that happened to me was about a week after having the service they called me up just to ask if I had any question about anything or needed helping with anything! I was a little thrown off by that, but it felt like they were going that extra mile on the service side of things. I really appreciate that in a company. I would definitely recommend the services.
Biggest Pro: Service and value
First class customer services
I bought a hosting plan after having Go Daddy recommended to me. My other sites are hosted by other hosting companies and I was happy with them but thought I would see what the competitors offered.
Although I found the optional extras a bit too pushy when I ordered my domain and hosting package I have to say that overall the service is A1.
What makes the service one which I will change my others to as the hosting runs out is the customer service offered. I had a few problems initially and sent emails asking for assistance. I received the information I needed within hours which I thought was brilliant as I have waited days with other hosting providers for assistance.
I would definately recommend this company especially as they also are keen to offer discounts pre sale for those who do a lot of business with domains etc!
Biggest Pro: Hassle free, everything in one place
Biggest Con: push optional extras a little too much
Running my site for 1-2 years already and not one complaint...
Godaddy is considered one of the top hosting companies in the world. With their awesome plans and cheap prices you can't go wrong. I have been a customer with godaddy since I started making my own websites and I have never had anything bad to say about them except that they are too perfect!! When I was having trouble with the installation of my script, I called godaddy and told them about my query. They immediately guided me on how to install a script for their server. Not only that! They even gave me a free email address for using their hosting plan. I don't know any hosters that do this kind of service at such a low rate. Though their servers may go down once in a while due to problems, it is always back up for less than an hour or so. They are reliable and you can't go wrong if you choose this hoster.
