Easy and well priced

I have been using Dotster for over 7 years now. My husband recently started a business and used godaddy, it was a nightmare! It was difficult to use and more expensive. I find Dotsters website builder (weebly) easy and has ma... More ny feature to make our website exactly how I want it. We pay about $10.50 for basic hosting and our domain per month. Godaddy is $13 and isn't nearly as good. Less
Nice Hosting

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.

The Absolute WORST!

From their customer (lack of) service to their actual hosting platforms, I'm baffled how they stay in business. Beyond dysfunctional!
Their hosting and customer service used to be good but is very poor now. Over two hour on-hold time.

I have been a customer since 2014. Their customer service standards are poor at best. Their on-hold time is poor at best with hold times of two hours. Today was worse - after holding for 1:58 mins for a rep to pick up, he ... More talked for 3 mins then went away. Fifteen mins later it shows we are still on the phone but he is no where to be found. VERY POOR!!!! Less
