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.
Most the reviews are questionable

We have been a AZURE partner for some time now and after reading the reviews here I see a common thread. Lack of trained MST Partner who can assist with securing the platform. Azure is a platform that can do most anything. ... More And there is the underlying problem; Azure can be very complex. Wildly guessing at packages and taking a stab at the platform can lead you to disaster. Misconfiguration is the number one issue most people have. If you are going to be deploying a professional environment seek out a AZURE pro to help.
Configured correctly and built out with the correct packages Azure is, in my opinion, the most reliable and power platform available right now.

Teuer, schwach, schlechter Support, keine Vertragstreue

Oberstes Gebot bei Godaddy scheint zu sein: Der Kunde muss zahlen! Für alles, ständig, und zwar viel!
Automatische langjährige Vertragsverlängerungen (ohne auch nur den Hauch eines Rabattes!) sind automatisch voreingestellt
... More Dafür erlaubt sich Godaddy, die Leistung nach eigenem Gutdünken zu verändern und einzuschränken. Auf Rückfrage "lernt" man dann (sofern man eine Antwort erhält), dass das ja alles nur zum Besten für die Kunden sei (woher man das weiß? Keine Ahnung - ich jedenfalls wurde noch nie gefragt).
Es gibt sogar einen eigenen Wikipedia-Eintrag zu den Klagen, die gegen Godaddy geführt wurden und werden - das sagt ja wohl alles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_controversies_involving_GoDaddy
Ich kann nur raten: Finger weg von diesem "Service"! Es gibt bessere, für weniger Geld.

Facturation incompréhensible - C'est du vol!
Guy Roland,

Ils te disent que les services sont gratuits pendant 12 mois.
Tu vas dans la section 'services gratuits', tu choisis base sql server, tu crée ta base et 2 mois ils te tendent une facture incompréhensible de 144 dollars!
Ils t... More e font croire que tu n'as pas choisi la bonne option et que tu as réservé l'infrastructure, l'option pay-as-you-go était masqué!
C'est quoi cette arnaque?

Winner: Microsoft Azure

Michael Levanduski Expert Hosting Writer & Tester

GoDaddy and Microsoft Azure are two of the largest and best known companies that serve the hosting industry, and each of them are best known for services other than hosting. When looking only at the hosting solutions they offer, you’ll notice that Microsoft Azure outperforms GoDaddy in just about every way. They are much more stable, and can offer an excellent overall environment to run your website on. While GoDaddy is good, Microsoft Azure is the winner of this comparison.
