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.

The support I have received has been amazing EVERY TIME!! They really take their time to help you our to resolve issues.
Also I get a lot for my money compared to other hosting websites for the same price or they are even more expensive.

IMH Shared Email Servers End Up In Spam Databases, Causing My Email to Be Rejected
Wayne Herbert,
4.0
I've been an IMH customer for 10 years and been generally satisfied with their service. But over the last six months, I have been getting increasing amounts of email rejected by yahoo, aol, mac, outlook, and others because I... More MH's shared email servers have been registered in various spam databases, including SpanHaus.

Over these last six months I have filed numerous tickets with support, seeking a solution. Support, each time I file a ticket, "rotates" the email server IP address. Things work fine for a couple of weeks, then the new IP address ends up in a spam database and I start getting rejected emails again. This last time, it was only two days after I filed the ticket that I started getting rejections.

IMH support has been no help. Their "solutions" are:
1) Keep filing tickets each time I get a kick back and they will rotate IP addresses.
2) Upgrade to a VPS package at $140 more per year and with resources I don't need.
3) Move my email to Google Gsuite.
What they haven't been able to do is tell me why they cannot get their email servers out of spam databases. I can only guess that this is because they are hosting spammers and not doing a good enough job of blocking them. Doesn't matter, I need a new ISP.

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

While InMotion Hosting and GoDaddy offer many of the same types of hosting solutions, they really aren’t in the same league. InMotion consistently out ranks GoDaddy in every measurable category by both the team of HostAdvice experts, and actual customers who have reviewed the companies. While GoDaddy is a very well-known company, they seem to have forgotten that they need to put the quality of their hosting above the quality of their marketing campaign. For all of these reasons, and many others, declaring InMotion the winner in this comparison is a very easy decision.
