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.

Worst possible experience during Transition
Sunny G,
2.0
These guys call them web hosting experts, really,
a) They don't know how to transfer mail out, the content when it transitioned during builder upgrade lost.
b) They can't hold a screen share for technical support since they... More are two afraid of looking and actually at the trash they create including when I am starting zoom where they are not sharing anything on their end.
c) Their phone and Email integration is worst ever - never syncs up
Stay away and try something else
