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.
greencloudvps is very good

I have been using Green Cloud for a long time and I have always been very satisfied with Green Cloud's services. Both the speed of feedback and the performance of the server can meet my current needs.

I have had nothing but issues with GoDaddy. I went with a name I had heard. My website is constantly unavailable, I spend hours on the phone trying to get it fixed. They constantly want money, renew this , you need that. Wh... More en I had to renew my domain names 2 hours on the phone because my card had expired and no one could help me. I am looking to change providers this is way too much of a headache Less
Overpriced AND will squirm out of '7 day money back guarantees'

I bought a mac vps from a site called CloudXMac which had a 7 day refund for new clients. Once i bought it i saw it was provisioned by GreenCloudVPS (a tiny line in the footer says CloudXMac is owned by a parent company and o... More wns lots of other VPS brands including greencloudVPS - essentially they 'gotcha' with this) - it was so slow and not fit for my use so asked for a refund, they refused because i had bought 1 VPS from greencloud nearly 6 months ago (apparently refund is only for first time clients from their ENTIRE PARENT COMPANY - which has loads of different VPS brands... LOL... apparently as a consumer i have to research every VPS provider and make sure i haven't bought from any of their host companies brands to make sure i'm a eligble for a 7 day guarantee advertised on a completely unrelated brand)
Do NOT buy from this. It's overpriced and they squirm out of refunds if service is terrible. Just go with a competitor, there's many out there for 2X cheaper and higher specs, better policies.
I imagine they will try to delete this review by claiming i'm a competitor or not a customer or something so i've attached a screenshot of my conversation with one of their support reps
Lots of suspicious looking reviews here, too. Lol..
