Nice Hosting
Muzaffer Bhat,

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.
I've used Hostwinks for about two years now

I've used Hostwinks for about two years now for hosting personal email and websites, and about two years for hosting email, website, and file backup for a business that's had between one and three people. There are various bu... More sinesses I've used to support my small business, but Hostwinks has been one of my favorites for two reasons: (1) they only change in *good* ways; and (2) the tech support is always knowledgeable.

No reason anymore to keep GoDaddy
Eric Rothmuller,

I own an online marketing company and I've always used GoDaddy and recommended GoDaddy to my clients. Their services have always been a little clunky and has had it's issues but their customer service was the one reason I stu... More ck with them for so many years. Their customer service was impeccable for seemingly a decade. Now it seems they have outsourced their customer service and it is atrocious. Issues take 3+ calls to resolve now, the wait times are much longer, and the service reps seem absolutely incompetent. The only reason I've ever truly had to stick with GoDaddy for over a decade is now gone and I'll be moving my clients and my domain, email, and web hosting needs elsewhere. Less
