I host a blog site http://digitalbhat.com with GoDaddy and found it satisfactory. I recommend this host to all on merit basis and overall experience I had with the service provider.

Reliable and Efficient is what I would say about A2 Hosting. Whenever I find myself needing technical support because I am not technically minded the tech support at A2 Hosting always come to my rescue in a timely fashion. If... More ever I was asked who I would recommend as as hosting service. A2 Hosting is my preference. Less

Tengo contratado un dominio en GoDaddy y no me permiten iniciar sesión si el navegador está impidiéndoles rastrearte.
Aunque el javascript esté activado y el bloqueador de anuncios desactivado, aparece el aviso: "Estás utiliz... More ando un navegador poco común."
No puedo realizar el pago, ni tampco gestionar la configuración DNS para incluir nuevo subdominio.
No lo recomiendo en absoluto, te obligan a dejarte rastrear.

Winner: A2 Hosting

Aviran Zazon HostAdvice COO

There is no doubt that GoDaddy is the better known company in this matchup, but that is about the only thing that they will beat A2 Hosting at. A2 Hosting is a much more reliable hosting company with better prices, and far better user support. They also have many additional options and features that GoDaddy just can’t compete with. A2 Hosting may not have the multi-million dollar marketing budgets, but they always put the quality of their hosting first, which is why they won this comparison.
