Nice Hosting
Muzaffer Bhat,
8.8
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.
Love them
Jeanne Wilmot,

The 24/7 live chat has saved me many times and is always very helpful. I wish the domain hosting were included in the reseller so I could set up the domains for clients more easily. Would be nice to be able to invoice client... More s directly from the reseller account or at least have multiple credit cards for payments from clients. The free SSL is great considering how much others charge. But it is a nuisance to constantly have to regenerate the certifications. This is the 4th hosting provider I have used in 5 years. So far have stayed the longest with them. After the big name ones, this customer service is a dream come true. Less

Extortion- run away
Patricia Dahlstrom,
2.4
Horrible. I had 2 domains. One I never used. I also had free sites for each. One tied to my correct and current domain and the other I didn’t use. I couldn’t tell one was attached to another domain at all (I have pics) and... More when I cancelled, I didn’t think the site that was using my current domain would go away. They said nothing and deleted it. Can they restore it? Sure can- for a price!!!! No one would take accountability or show ANY compassion. Less
Got ambushed with Christmas Day renewal
Daniel Spratt,
4.4
Had been hosting 2 domains with them for 3 years. Auto renewed my plan for 4x original price on CHRISTMAS DAY. No phone call prior, just and email that got buried in spam 14 days before. Customer retention and service refuses... More to work with me. Would not give them another dime. All future business will be taken elsewhere. Avoid. Less
