I hosted several sites with GoDaddy for several years. At first they were responsive and the sites were fairly easy to set up. Over the years, their control panels became more confusing to use and I experienced several, small problems with the hosted web sites. My main site was down for a period of several days (not really sure how long as I don’t monitor them regularly) until a client brought it to my attention. I had to contact GoDaddy to get it restored as it was their error. The staff member was very apologetic but could not offer an explanation for the downtime. I have also had difficulties uploading files to the site hosted by GoDaddy – again, GoDaddy technical support had to intervene and had no explanation why “something changed.” I have always had great support from GoDaddy, but since they are the ones that created the problems, I do not consider that a positive aspect. I am happier when I never have to call support for anything. The declining reliability of GoDaddy prompted me to move most of my web sites (one remains with GoDaddy) to other services; also, their prices were not competitive for the services received. My biggest problem with GoDaddy is their public image, particularly the way they present women. I deal with professional clients and I am not interested in having a hosting site that is dangerously close to discrimination. I also do not want to be associated with a hosting service that does not have a professional atmosphere.
