I signed up with GoDaddy over two years ago to host a stamp collecting website, mathstamps.org. I obtained the web domain and GoDaddy's handling of the site for about $300 for three years. I use Expression Web 4 on my computer to modify the pages about every three months when a new issue of our newsletter is published. Uploading changed pages is quick and virtually automatic. I have had no problems with GoDaddy and expect to renew next year.

A satisfied customer for almost five years. I received a call from a technical rep shortly after setting up the account; did not need help and have not had to talk to them since. I have their basic Linux hosting package, and they do domain registrations. The monthly cost is a combination of domain and hosting. I have had no bad experiences with them, and don't recall any outages that were their responsibility. I consider myself more than just computer literate, and do things like run special applications for forums and photo galleries on other sites, some of them GoDaddy hosted. They work. My "Bad" comment is not about their advertising, but their web presence and email promotions, which are only a minor irritant. Their web presence is a little better than a few years ago, when it was difficult to find a way through their sales links to manage your own site. Now, not so bad. My site is not the busiest in the world, and I have never been bandwidth or storage constrained. Potential customers should check their needs; it is easy to buy too much space and speed. There are free sites, and some that cost less. My experience with these is that in a commodity like web hosting, saving money can correspond to reduced service. Happy with GoDaddy and can't save enough elsewhere to make a switch worthwhile.

I started with godaddy about a year ago. Service was good, support was always around for questions and they provided a pretty decent service. My reason for leaving them was all the addon charges they want for any little change or addition that others don't charge for, and the long waits for auto installs, example: wp auto install took 2 hours, small sql backups 3 hours.. changes/updates take too long

Have not had to speak with at all.. In fact I forgot I even wrote this review.. So over all good job godaddy keep up the good work,

I have been using Go-daddy as my domain register for a quite some time... Always been very good. Recently I decided to start using them for email. Again they have been very good... Tech support is very responsive and is not over seas. Nice to speak to follow american or Canadian when calling in.

Email system was very easy to setup. Intergrated well into my blackberry system...

So far not much I can find wrong with this company...

Good "Easy and fast to set up. Decent user CP."
Bad "Can be blocked by some websites. If setting up a proxy for myspace, avoid this host."
Overall "Cheap reliable, can get email/hosting/domain all in one place. Overall good host for general website or small sales website."

I ordered the smallest package. I already had 6 domains with GoDaddy and had never had a problem. My old host just randomly shut down without notice so I had to look other places. Overall pretty good host. Wish had Cpanel UCP but the supplied is sufficient. No contract or hidden fees. Just have to turn down 4-5 pages of garbage like site stats software, search engine junk, etc. Overall 3.5 out of 5

I have several shared hosting accounts with them for a while now and love their service.
SSL is so easy to setup, install is automatic.
My accounts are available as soon as I order them.
They offer Shared, Virtual Dedicated, Dedicated Server Plans.

  • Install: about 2 days
Good "free ad supported host with free email"
Bad "banner ad at top of each page"
Overall "a great value for a page that isn't expected to generate much income"

i keep a small page up for my pc repair business. my annual income is only a couple hundred bucks (i don't do any other advertising), so i didn't want to waste a boatload of money on hosting.

Godaddy gives me plenty of storage and traffic for free. with just one lil banner at the top of each page. includes pop3 email, with a catch all feature, and a stats page. i haven't checked on uptime, but i really have no complaints. costs me around $9 a year to renew my domain name.

i just bought a few .info domains for $3 each, with free hosting. just to play with.

Overall "Very easy to set up and use"

I am using their economy web hosting and I have 3 domain names with them.

Their DNS control for domain names is VERY powerful, and blows 1and1 out of the water. In fact, this is the very reason I switched to GoDaddy.

Their Metropolis Community makes installing common applications (Joomla, Wordpress, etc.) as easy as a couple clicks. However, custom installs or installs of other software is very easy. Setting up the MySQL databases was straightforward once I figured out the database name is the same as the username.

They also allow you to have your own php.ini file to override some of their settings (I needed to increase my maximum upload size and was able to do so without a problem).

I highly recommend GoDaddy for your domain names and web hosting.

Their tech support the one time I had to talk to them was good and told me exactly where to find the information I needed.

Review by NJxxxJon See Profile

  • Location: New Egypt,Ocean,NJ
  • Cost Contract price not specified.
Good "Ease of Use, Cheap, Re-routes webpages."
Bad "Can't index pages, many crap options i dont need, needs to be promoted more, cant upload files to share"
Overall "If Someone on DSLR knows something just as good TELL ME."

So I paid the 8 bucks \ a year deal. Not too shabby as some might say. Set me RIGHT up off my credit card. (and you can send checks) Re-Routed my website and it took about 4-5 hours to authorize it (dont know why) Looked around to upload files to share off my DOT COM, but..ta....ya cant.. The IP never changes and the setup was very quick....2/4 people id recomend this service to. My experience (my first DOT COM as well) was fair...i mean....There is better out there...and I have to look for it.
