Nice Hosting
Muzaffer Bhat,

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.
A few issues
Francoise Bencke,

The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less

Worst hosting company ever
Hubertus Huber,

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!
Sideways !

I could not describe a more useless understanding that this company members have of Western customers and practises.
If you want our bucks give us the service we require.
Tired of this nomadic tax havean located and low cos... More t labors greedy business model.
Technically they are just a reseller.
