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.

If anyone ever wants to know the truth and facts about AWS Customer Supports Vs GoDaddy, Hostway, Hosting Source, Google, Apple READ THIS:
7 years now dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond wha... More t their rules and Regs and policies are to HELP, SUPPORT and maintain whatever it takes for AWS to serve and keep us as a client.
They are the NUMBER 1 Company and they already WON Best Customer Support globally as far as I am concerned

After 15 years they blocked my email account, then I went to log into my account but their 2-factor authentication had an old land line phone number and the blocked email address. It took over an hour to get a live body on th... More e phone and then it was I can't do this and I can't do that. They made me email a copy of my D/L and wait...3 days. I never did get my email back. These guys used to be okay, now they just suck. Less
Stay away from AWS

This service is complete garbage. It has terrible customer service and the fees can get outrageous. They have take no responsibility for hacked accounts and are completely worthless.

Winner: Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Eliran Ouzan Web Designer & Hosting Expert

Amazon Web Services and GoDaddy are both iconic companies in the web hosting industry, but rather than name recognition, we are looking just at hosting quality in this comparison. For quality, Amazon Web Services outperforms GoDaddy in many significant ways. First, they are a more reliable hosting provider, which is among the most essential things. They also offer better technical support, and support for more types of services. On top of all the other advantages, they also keep their prices very competitive, which is why they are the winner of this matchup.
