I won't use GoDaddy for my domain stuff even though I love their ads.

You lost all credibility with that contradiction there.

Why? I love sexy ads as much as the next guy. My reason for not using GoDaddy is 2 fold:

1. They run their stuff on Windows/IIS and I refuse to patronize businesses that use Microsoft technology on the Internet if I can avoid it.
2. They are more expensive than my current host.

If they were cheaper and used Apache on Linux I'd probably use them, because of their ads.

How about their support (and eventual flip flop) over SOPA?

Forgot about that. So no I wouldn't use them no matter what. But do like their ads.

My GoDaddy account is hosted on a Linux server running Apache and PHP and has been for about 10 years. It's $4.95/mo. I don't see how it could be much cheaper.

That's what I pay Hostmonster and they are 100% Linux, have great customer support, and don't use Windows for their critical infrastructure. I avoid sites with .asp/.aspx in them like the plague they are.
