Go Daddy Reviews

GoDaddy:
1. Very slow Hosting servers
2. Poorly trained support staff
3. Incompetent management
4. Unethical sales tactics
5. Will update your credit card expiration date in order to auto bill your account.
6. GD owns Standard Tactics, co in New Mexico, in order to grab domains of value when they expire.
7. Created their own Redemption policy in order to then sell your domain on tdnam.com. Ask them about "Status 77"...
8. Becoming a giant of their industry and will become more obtrusive and aggressive against domain owners.

RE: GoDaddy.
I changed my credit card on file and the next billing cycle they used the old number anyway. When I told them what had happened, and I'm assuming there is a log of my account activity, they said my services could be restored...oh and by the way, there would be $135 restoration fee. Obviously, I said; "no thanks."
When will a law get passed that allows consumers to charge businesses a fee for the troubles they must endure for crappy service?

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.
