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.
Thank you for your support

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
Thieves, and Politically motivated
David Domena,

This is what we posted on Google Reviews.
These bastards took my money for hosting for the year.
Then, messed with my web due to Political motivations.
Then when we complained, they said we will not help you any more,
and the... More y shut our website down, without issuing us a refund.
We were victimized by BIAS / Political motivations,
and they illegally shut down our site, after they've been paid, for the entire year.
Stay away from this Company and do NOT host your site here.
They even blocked our FTP access, and CPanel, so that we can not migrate our site to different server. Another words, they stole our money, and have our website held hostage. We put in a complaint to the FCC, and are pursuing other legal routes. Here is our Google Review: https://goo.gl/maps/CzTkR8BStZup3v78A
