@amyhallbiz @jasonwiser @glengorham @jim-lodico @nilminiklur I just wanted to add for the record that I’ve had issues with GoDaddy, but they’ve always been good about customer service and getting them resolved. I have used two other hosting companies and had worse issues.
The biggest was, in a nutshell, I had some small sites hosted with hosting company to be unnamed. They were running slow as snails and were down a lot aka, up less than the advertised 99.9%. During the same time period, I had my main blog which had probably 10 times the traffic on a cheap GoDaddy plan. The hosting company for my smaller sites told me I needed to upgrade to a much more expensive plan for some small WordPress sites that (in total) probably didn’t have more than 100 visits a day where my main blog with GoDaddy was getting over 1,000. The hosting company for my smaller sites also questioned whether I was “sure” my sites were really down that often (like I don’t know whether a site is working vs. not working).
In the end, I moved my small sites over to GoDaddy and they have been performing great ever since. Hiccups hear and there, but nothing like what I experience with the other company who wanted me to pay five times more per month than what I was paying with GoDaddy. So while it seems like everyone has problems with them, I typically have more problems with others.
