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

Worst hosting company ever

We are trying to fix a Webhosting issue that we have for more than 2 months. Nobody calls back, none is able to give technical advice. Call-center only. This has nothing to do with a great customer experience!
The worst ever.. charging for a service not used,Creating suspiciousactivities to extort money from users,very annoying

I recently created an aws account which is a prerequisites for a machine program only used the free tier deep racer and deep composer nothing else. Only to receive emails of suspicious activities and I followed all the instr... More uctions to fix the issue changed my account and password but to my amazement they reversed it back could not log into that account for days and keep mailing suspicious activities. When I was able to re-log back in, they claim I used EEC2 service which I didn't use, am yet to even know how the aws cloud works I explained and followed all instructions to correct the issue the support person later told me it fix only to see me been charged for that same service I never used ..I dnt wven know what service it is .. For me this experience has made it clear aws trick people into opening account and if one doesn't use the account they will create activities to extort money out of the account owner.. this is my experience and it is not a pleasant one. If that issue is not resolved I am going to delete my account and will keep warning people of aws extortion. Less

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.
