my honest review of godaddy 2016Post Updated 5 march 2017. Go daddy is one of the  biggest domain registrars in the US , Inspite of being quite well known  and being one of the most popular   advertisers on the Superbowl “Americas premier sporting event” they have  taken a beating to their online reputation on various websites and forums, when it comes  to website hosting  and I don’t know why.

You search online and you can get many bad reviews about godaddy. I got my first  godaddy hosting account  and domain  with great nervousness almost 5+ years ago, in spite of reading all the online  bads reviews  about  Godaddy.com.

I purchased webhosting at that time from them, just because they were offering a $1  or $1.95 a month  hosting offer to me which sounded really cheap. I just said to myself  – what the heck – and for that kind of money I could certainly give it a try. (I have collected and listed current deals at the bottom of this post and they are some here on this website as well)

Funny thing is I wasn’t disappointed with that cheap webhosting purchase. I have since then got another second hosting account with godaddy and have like 30 + domains with them as well.

This hosting that i purchased was most certainly  a very cheap price at that time. If i remember right it was $1.95 a month hosting, and it was definite cheap  compared to the other website-hosting deals going around at that time of roughly $5 to $6 a month. So I just grabbed it and set up a few niche blogs and also an affiliate site to promote products online.

The niche site did well and I also made money from the affiliate website and so my initial investment was already covered ten times in that year.

So was godaddy worth it ?

Well  as I was just starting new websites , I was not  really tracking stuff  like if they were 100% online all the time  or then how slow my website was loading,   but as my websites  were new and   did not use much  bandwidth and  resources everything was fine  and chugging along.

In fact go daddy at that time already had a 99% uptime guarantee, so I never had to worry.  While a little later, I also purchased hostgator and dreamhost hosting for more projects, i had issues with my accounts getting hacked  and slow servers peed and downtime in initial years. I got emails from them, telling me that my website was hogging their server resources , when i didn’t even have  like 100 hits a days , while my godaddy account was fine  and no emails from them , so from that point of view  surely GDaddy was a winner .

I’m still with hostgator and blue host and they have stopped sending me resources hogging emails, or your account will be limited etc.. So that’s definitely   good sign from the hosting industry and i still until today use go daddy  hosting for several of my websites.

The best thing about godaddy that i like – is that they have local 1 dollar a month hosting wordpressAmerican support that you can pick up the phone and speak too and i always get to speak to a person pretty soon without staying too long on the line. The few times that i called support , i was actually  attended to by knowledgeable staff  who managed to sort out the problem I had.
