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.
Friendly staff

IX! I was not sure how to add a review in your site, I was truly disappointed by some of the reviews
I read in some other sites. First, I would like to start by saying, you have always taken care of me, from allowing me to kn... More ow
months in advance if my domain's expiring, or hosting my site and allowing me enough time to have the year cost. Your company has always set a high standard with my small business when I first started with you nine years ago. My technical helper, Mandy helped me set up my website
with your help. She was very pleased with your company, she used it for her own site. That sold me immediately. Your fees are very reasonable, and the few times I had to be on the phone with you, you have had a friendly staff answering phones and helping with unique questions. A while
ago, I was helped in a very personal way about what to put in certain areas in my site. This person, was remarkable and funny too. She helped me with my wordpress site, by mentioning one or two things I never thought I would know on my own. I don't remember her name, but we laughed and
joked a little. Left a very pleasant image of your company.
There is always a unique person on the other side of the line when I have called. I believe this company has taken very good care of all our sites, by updating it, and taking no more than 24 hours to update living it safe and protecting it from harm. Thank you Ixwebhosting, you are truly an
amazing company to be associated with.

After 15 years they blocked my email account, then I went to log into my account but their 2-factor authentication had an old land line phone number and the blocked email address. It took over an hour to get a live body on th... More e phone and then it was I can't do this and I can't do that. They made me email a copy of my D/L and wait...3 days. I never did get my email back. These guys used to be okay, now they just suck. Less
Worst cr** i ever had!
