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.

Hello,
I use services of SmarterASP.NET for a few years already, it works as expected, control panel is simple. Moreover they are helpful when there is some problem:)

Te obligan a dejarte rastrear para pode rusar sus servicios
Aveladrdo K.,

Tengo contratado un dominio en GoDaddy y no me permiten iniciar sesión si el navegador está impidiéndoles rastrearte.
Aunque el javascript esté activado y el bloqueador de anuncios desactivado, aparece el aviso: "Estás utiliz... More ando un navegador poco común."
No puedo realizar el pago, ni tampco gestionar la configuración DNS para incluir nuevo subdominio.
No lo recomiendo en absoluto, te obligan a dejarte rastrear.

Hidden limitations, slow website, terrible support, unfair treatment
Pavel Kovalev,
2.0
Hidden limitations:
Are they really "hidden"? No, but good luck finding them before the purchase.
- ALL hosting plans have file count limits (10k-100k), so forget about your Wordpress. https://www.smarterasp.net/support/kb/... More a1526/what-are-the-file-count-limits-for-all-hosting-plans_.aspx
- Some additional services you may need: external IP - $24.00, 1 SQL Job - $19.95, cheapest SSL possible - $29.00 and others ... Find out real prices before pulling a trigger
Slow website:
CPU usage should be minimal because "Customer agrees that they will not use excessive amounts of CPU processing on any of SmarterASP.net's servers. Any violation of this policy may result in remedy action by SmarterASP.net , which may be taken in SmarterASP.net's sole discretion with or without notice"
What is excessive amounts? it's not define, but forget about any CMS built-in backup features. Read more here https://www.smarterasp.net/tos
Terrible support:
Out of the whole thing support probably the brightest part, however overall treatment wasn't great. You just a moneybag and you feel it.
Unfair treatment:
Affiliates are required to refer at least 3 new paid customers per year to quality for commission withdraw. smarterasp.net/affiliate_terms
It doesn't matter how many customers you brought them, it doesn't matter it's being years of service and thousand of dollars spent. They didn't let you withdraw $115.85
Highly not recommended
